Downtown Albuquerque on a Saturday night, the stuff that most episodes of COPS are made of! Fortunately (unfortunately?), we did not have any cross dressing truck drivers interfere with our fantastic night of quizzing. 9 teams graced us this evening and battled it out at the lovely Dublin's Pub. We were even blessed to have Geeks Who Drink's own Kent and Eric the Jewish Viking come out and batter the competition!
Quiz tonight started with a round on breakfast and had a lot of trickeration. I love when I get to talk about Milk Seas, Crunchy Nuts, Black people as mascots and Shit on a Shingle! We moved right into the audio round that was made for Steve Martin. I am very surprisedat how many teams knew the Eli Young Band and of course, did not know Iggy Pop. Our speed round tonight had ourbquizzlings naming NCAA football programs with the most "official" wins of all time. Yes, if this question was asked about 2 months ago, you all would have gotten Penn State right, but when you let a dirty old man work for you and ignore the fact that he is molesting kids, you get permanently erased from history. At least you did not get the SMU kiss of death Penn State. The next round was all about Disney. Yes, I am pretty certain the Southern Baptist Convention is still pissed that Disney has a "day" for the gays, but I am 100% sure they will never forgive them for allowing "the blacks" in the park, or so thought team D.C.!!! If there were some way to make the religious "right" just see how fucking wrong they are..... Our visual round had subverted state signs and our following round covered Deans, Beans, Music & Fruit. I found out all of you eat way to much at Chipotle and did not watch nearly enough Strawberry Shortcake while growing up. The second audio round had clips from law enforcement television shows and I will be straight up with you: WATCH LONGMIRE!!!!!!! It is a fantastic show! Our final round of random knowledge featured Scheherazade, Vasco Da Gama, Bazooka Joe and the delicious Christopher Sarantakos. Mmmmmmmmmmmm....TAKOS!!!!!!!
Thanks to everyone who came out last night. Thanks to the lovely Pedro, Jewel and Miranda for rocking the service (as always) at Dublin's.
In the end, 2 guys I hold dear to my heart (and paycheck) fair and squarely took away the victory! They got 14 points on round 2, used the joker, and never looked back! Our Princes of the Geek Universe this evening: Imitation is the Highest Form of Disappointing Kent & Eric!
Congrats to "Feeding Rosie O'Donnell; It's a Trap!" for getting second.
A little PSA here: There IS free parking at the bank on Gold and 3rd (across from Burt's).
Check you all next week and don't forget, October 18th is the All Simpson's quiz. Check it out HERE.
Love you, night night
