It was the best of the times. It was the worst of times. It was the best of quiz. It was the worst of quiz. In a case of life imitating art, the Sunday night Geeks Who Drink quiz read just like a Dickens classic, only without the dense prose, star-crossed lovers, cholera, dysentery and plague. The TRUELOVE quizzers turned in rounds that were often Jekyl and Hyde. As a whole, the bar would either totally own a round, or get their collective balls kicked in.
Here’s the good:
Round 1: The Mystery round about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (a classic tale of their own). The average score: 7.75. Kowabunga!
Round 3: Ivy League Schools. Avg. 7.5 and only needed about half of the time to do it.
Round 5: Too Big to Fail and there was no epic fails here with a 7.25 average.
And even round 8 was strong with all four teams scoring in double digits.
…and then the other half.
The two audio rounds turned out to be scarier than some of the books reports we had to write when forced to read those boring ass “classics” in school. Music is supposed to soothe the savage beast. The string laden TV theme songs did nothing but piss our collective beasts off. No one scored higher than 4. The odd-themed PSY round 2 was no picnic either. Only one team scored well enough to Joker and it looked like that might be the round that would be the decider.
Wisconsin seems mundane. Pedestrian if you will. So were the scores. The French term for “clear water” is of course, Lambeau. Honestly, I don’t think the people of Wisconsin have much to say about their home state.
A round on classic literature? Fuck that shit. Let’s go read (and by read, I mean put in the DVD) the greatest porn classic of all time: A Sale of Two Titties! HOT!
This up and down scoring resulted in some decent results. But just to prolong the agony, Fuck A Team Name and Mitt Romney’s Magic Underwear decided to end the night with a 74-74 tie. A quick sudden death round gave Mitt’s Underwear the win 3-2. Tom Greene & The Mother Fucking Pulsar finished a solid third for 65. The Brute Squad Puts Baby in the Corner finished out of the money, but a decent 61 points.
…AND they lived happily ever after.
Thanks for coming out. See you this Thursday. See you next Sunday. I see London. I see France. I don’t see your underpants because I know you’re all going commando.
Love on ya,
