I have a few favors to ask of my wonderful Canyon’s Crown Quizzers. First, we didn’t make 20 teams this week. That means we are back to Square One on our 3 week run of 20 teams to get a scorekeeper. Please, folks, bring friends next week. Bring enough friends that you have to break into 2 or 3 teams. Second, spend a little time on geekswhodrink.com. Besides enjoying the blog, there are a bunch of other things to check out on the website. Particularly, check out the “suggest a round” section. Every week, Quizzers come up to me and either complain about a round, or ask why we don’t do a round on something they want. Let your voice be heard! We want to know what you want to be quizzed on. Third, it’s Halloween season. I want to see some Halloween spirit! I’m doing Halloween bonus questions for Halloween prizes, making scary drink coupons, wearing Halloween t-shirts, etc. I’d like to see some other people wearing Halloween stuff, maybe get some Halloween artwork on the answer sheets. I don’t know…be creative!
So, last night’s Quiz…
Round 1 was about things that stink. Surprisingly, there were no questions on either the Romney campaign or the Jeff Flake campaign.
Round 2 was the world’s easiest audio round. Other than the Busta Rhymes rip off of the Knight Rider theme, they were all pretty easy. I say this as a guy who had no idea what “Call Me Maybe” was until about 6 months after everyone else.
Round 3 was a geography round. I’ve learned to expect disappointment. If I ever come into some money, I’m buying you all atlases. Incidentally, this round reminded me how much I love the word ‘honky’. I just don’t get to hear that word nearly enough.
Round 4 was written by a 7th grader for 7th graders. Text language. FML.
Round 5 was a visual round about going down. Submarines, that is. I screwed up and did my Sean Connery impression for Crimson Tide instead of Hunt For Red October. Oops.
Round 6 was a round on botany. I got a lot of complaints about this one. Other teams did great on it. Perfect example of why you need to go suggest your round ideas.
Round 7 was an audio round on Oscar winners and Razzie “winners”. You guys were pretty good at identifying terrible movies. How many of you paid to see Glitter anyway? Shame…
Round 8 was, of course, random knowledge. My favorite part of this round was the revelation that you are all big fans of the Pauly Shore movie, “Biodome”. That explains a lot of why you don’t do well with science or history, I guess. Haha
OK, so remember your homework. Let’s get it done, people. You’re the best Quizzers in the whole damn GWD network. I know you can do it. In the meantime, go to the Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Geeks-Who-Drink-Pub-Quiz-At-Canyons-Crown/483388135009881, like us, and tag your pics. Also, like this blog. This will help spread the word about what we do. Here is your Halloween blog question for the week. First one to come tell me the answer gets a beer on me. The director of the remake of “Halloween” was in a band with a female bass player. What was her name? See you next week. Cheers!
