So all those Junior Seau Said Ow or Say Ow! team names? You suck. That's the best out there? A play on his name? Try harder next time someone dies. Not MCA though. I loved that man. The world is far less ready to rock without him in it. In other news, I haven't seen the Avengers even though it's been out for 24 hours. I know, I'm that bad of a nerd. I haven't even seen Thor or Captain America. I'll get around to it, but for now shouting FUS RO DAH at my Kinect has been what I've been up to.

Evil Rob's Weekly Champions of Quizlandia!
A weekly look at who is better than you by the guy who is smarter than you.
--That blast came from McCabe's Tavern in the Springs. That thing's operational!
--3-way tie for 5th place in the team rankings between Fiendish Dr. Woo's Kung-Fu Treachery (Killarney's--Riverside, CA), The Super Friends (The Highball--Austin, TX), and Allie Rocks (Joshua Tree Bar & Grill--Somerville, MA). Dance-off!
--Waco bolts all the way up to #RG3 in the city rankings this week. I wonder if RGIII plays quiz. I think he'd be really fucking good at that, too.
--Now that there is a GWD quiz in NYC, I can officially combine that quiz's score and those of the quizzes across the river in NJ and count New York's score in the city rankings. Right now New York is getting an atomic wedgie in pub quiz from the likes of Sacramento, Boise, and Nashville. I generally don't even bother calculating an average for those cities because they're so far from contention for the Top 5. So you all have a reason to feel superior to the Big Apple. For now anyway.
--I really, really, like the caliber of most of the team names in the team rankings this week. Good work, people. I'm not gonna lie, a funny team name makes me MUCH less suspicious that you're cheating.
--Speaking of #3, that's the Texas Theatre's spot in the bar rankings. In their FIRST WEEK PLAYING THE QUIZ. Somehow Dallas actually got a bar in the bar rankings, but didn't finish in the city rankings for the first time in three weeks. Glitch in the matrix...
--Speaking of Dallas, they tied with Fort Collins for #7 in the city rankings (70.18). Dance-off!
