Wednesday was the first day of Spring. All over the earth, places had roughly equal parts day and night. We'll gain 3 minutes a day of daylight from here until the start of summer. I know all of these facts because the start of Spring is a huge deal in Syracuse because it means we're almost done with winter. The extra daylight everyday is a big thing because annually we only get 50% of the sunlight in a given year because of almost constant cloud cover. The point is: winter is as bleak as it can get in these parts, and Spring time is celebrated. It's also the time of year that's furthest from next winter without being winter, so there's also that bonus.

Springtime winners Jazz Hands: The Michael J Fox Story and second place Indian Ocean Commercial Network won a quiz featuring a lot of points at stake.

Round 7 was double points if you could name the actual phrase we replaced with Pee Wee Herman yelling "Giant Underpants". Plain 'ol 8 points if you could only name the politician.

Super high scoring round 2. One perfect score plus joker even! Nice job, Indian Ocean.

We even had a team from Colorado. I hope I was able to meet your standards and congrats on the legalization of marijuana!

Until next time I will be counting down the minutes until we next meet. I'll arrange them into hours and days just to make it easier on myself. See you next Wednesday at 8pm, players.

The quiz this week was excellent. Nary a Nelly round in sight, a fantastic round 7, and a dance-off. Coupled with the drink specials and delicious food we've all come to love and depend on every Wednesday at 8pm, this was one of my favorite weeks ever.

The final scores had a definite correlation to rounds 2 and 8. Top scorers Bloop and I wanna put a Smile on your box like Amazon.com scored 14 points and doubled their round. Pope Francis Fan Club also doubled their high quiz score of 14, just in round 8. That's a lot of pressure to put on yourself, going into round 8 needing a big round to put yourself into contention. But what all this data means is really you need to have a really solid round when there are 16 points at stake. The joker is only your friend when he nets you over 20 points.

Round 7 was pretty hilarious. The "truthfulness" of the movie trailers was dead on. The treatment of "Paranormal Activity" was my favorite: "86 minutes of A sheet. A Guitar. A Ceiling grate. Some blinds. Stairs. Stairs. Stairs."

I also learned my attempt at a British Accent sounds a lot more like an Australian from Boston. (Thanks round 3)

Then after all this fun we had a dance off, where our Pope Francis Fan Club was able to pull out the win despite an excellent showing from Bloop that stripped off at least two layers of clothing. It's still winter in Syracuse, so that two layers were both sweatshirts and he had two shirts on under those.

I hope you have a great week and I will miss you until then.

Well, there are difficult rounds, and then there were round 3 and 7 on Wednesday's quiz. Under a 2 point average for all teams that participated. Since the quiz was so incredibly close (2 way tie for first) the rounds didn't have to much to do with the final outcome. They were equally low scoring for everybody.

Round 3 was a round about nouns that appear in the bible. It is clear to me after seeing a lot of the guesses many of you need to crack open the good book more often. Some of my favorite wrong guesses: Women. Women mostly appear in the bible when someone is telling them the be quiet, a man is talking. Sin. The bible really doesn't spend a lot of time talking about sin per say. There is a lot more "how to avoid hell" but not as much "isn't sin just the worst?". I still had several people guess man/men even though I told them I wasn't counting those.

Round 7 was diagnosing what song Nelly was covering/ruining. These songs were TV themes and some straight up covers of other songs. Nelly, if you are reading this and I know that you are, don't ever do a show in Syracuse. We all hate you. It may have something to do with how you say "here".

Winners circle included No Glove No Love and Bloop, with NGNL winning in sudden death. Honorable mention to Lamp that missed out on the first place tie by a mere point. Love you all and see you next week Wednesday 8pm.
