The Geek in Review Guest Quizmaster Series
This week's GIR was written by Quizmaster Chris, aka FishBoxer. You can see him host on Tuesdays at 8pm at Sweet Caroline's Restaurant & Bar in Boston, MA and Wednesdays at 8pm at Tavern in the Square in Allston, MA. As seen in Meet Your Quizmaster nobody likes him, so be gentle.
I'm glad Goober wrote last week's GiR. It was supposed to be my week until my best friend decided to get married on a whim so Goober was kind enough to fill in for me and set the bar pretty low. Did you know his nickname was supposed to be Booger but he misspelled it?
I digress. I'm supposed to be saying good things about my fellow Quizmasters here, or so I have been told. I was also told to talk about the color of my toenails. I don't know why I was told this or why any of you would care, but they are currently a bright orange. No, you cannot see pictures. If you must know the story I paint them for identification purposes. Being such a freakishly large fellow makes it tough for me when I look down on everyone (and I DO look down on everyone). By painting my toenails I can easily distinguish my feet from everyone else's.
Sorry, I went on a tangent again. Fellow Quizmasters. Nice words. Oohh something shiny!

Evil Rob's Weekly Champions of Quizlandia!
A weekly look at who is better than you by the guy who is smarter than you.
--Okay, so maybe Austin isn't a one-horse town after all...
--The big surprise of the week has got to be The Upper Decks. They're not usually one of Austin's higher-scoring quizzes, but this week they got #1 bar and #1 team in country.
--A team from Boston got #2 in the team rankings for I think the first time ever.
--If I could rank the teams in the team rankings based solely on their names, Rosemary's Baby Got Back would be #1 by a gigantic margin. Though if Anal Hershiser had won at Opal Divine's, it would have been close.
