Geeks WHo Drink are alive and well and living in Belltown. For our second week of Pub quizzing, we had a generous 6-team turnout and the word is spreading! I have visions of a crowded C.S. Finnegan's too full to house all those quiz-o-philes. Some day it shall be so. But in the meantime, we were treated to a few solo "teams," a few returning players, a nice Minnesota couple, and a team that knows that Red Bull is really just Red Bullshit.
The crowd knew quite a bit about frightening children. Maybe it's because they were all frightened children themselves at one point, maybe it's because they have a penchant for making the wee ones cry, but from Zeebo's nose to Boo Radley's hiding place to the Children of Nebraska's cornfields, our players knew their scary kids. And the fantastic scoring performances continued in Round 5's homophone identification with EVERY TEAM pulling in a perfect score.
Much respect goes out to Team Red Bullshit for an impressive score on a tough Round 6. First, identify what's wrong about the statement, then tell us what the correct answer is, all while trying not to get the Schoolhouse Rock song stuck in your head. A great accomplishment for the champs of the evening.
This week, I attempted to run the quizz while also drafting ym fantasy football team. The quiz went great, the draft went even better. So next week I think I'll try to split my focus even more by running the quiz while baking a pie, performing heart surgery, and writing the next great American novel. Can I wield thought-provoking prose while baking up a flaky, delicious treat? Can I succesfully bypass 3 valves while slinging witty, carefully constructed questions about B-Movies and Board Games? We'll find out next Wednesday at 8pm.
Maybe I should just focus on reading words while drinking.
