At first I thought I'd mention that I suck at doing Jewish grandma accents and then make a joke that if I was going to do a real impression of my actual grandma I'd just lay still in a pine box, but that got kind of weird/depressing so I thought I'd go for some lighter fare and do a quick breakdown of our teams. You guys don't really know each other so why not do some quick introductions? Not like I know any of you, but I pretend to, and I'm paid to like you guys, so why not?
#2 is a team I actually called out last week and said they'd never come to another quiz ever again, but here they were two weeks in a row. According to one of the two guys on the team, this was a total accident, but I'm counting it otherwise. You're regulars now. I'll see you next week and you better have the answer to the email question or I'm breaking kneecaps.
Swamp Donkey was a team who experienced their first quiz and I tried my best to be gentle, but they stayed for the whole thing and the guy with the longer hair knew one of the Oscar Wilde plays. Your secret is safe with me and the rest of the entire internet!
The High School Fat Kids weren't in high school nor were they fat. Although, I'm no judge of what someone in high-school age looks like, at least according to my parole officer.
The Smart Asses consist of Gabe and Sage, your rock stars behind the bar, and anyone else on staff that they can ask for help on questions. Don't forget that quizzers ALWAYS take care of their servers and bar staff, and when they don't, I hear about it, and "accidentally" misplace answer sheets. Whoops!
Werewolf Bar Mitzvah came in fifth despite winning it all last week. Boys becoming men, men becoming wolves. Wolves becoming quizzers who don't know which round to joker. (SORRY but it's kind of true.)
Never Mess With A Wombat is a team that I think has quizzed here before but to be honest I'm not sure. They're the random guy you run into from high school that you think you know but you can't remember his name. Wombats sound familiar somehow. Until it finally clicks, it's all, "Hey big guy/stranger/man/dude/you! What have you been up to?"
The Rest of our Team is at "J" School is a team that deserves some props because they recycle their team name format every week but still remain fresh somehow. And they came in third this week after falling short in previous weeks. Hey, Rome wasn't built in a day! I think Facebook was though, so by Mark Zuckerberg's standards you guys are behind schedule. Also, I don't know what J School is, will someone explain the comments? If it's like J-date don't bother though, I'm all over that.
Team No Name deserves severe punishment for punting on their name but gets props for joining a new quiz after frequenting others (let's just say they get around). Looks like you've found your home though. You've got my human stink all over you, so don't bother going back to any other venues, your mama bird doesn't want you back.
Lastly, team We Be Illin' took first place after a few weeks running a two-man quiz at the bar and watching other teams pass them by. This week, they assembled into their full 5-member megazord squad and left all other quizzers in their wake. Your goal next week is to shame them by winning and maybe making fun of the University of Illinois. I heard that's where they're from, but the quizmaster who told me that is often full of shit so that could be a complete lie.
That's it for team recaps, and tonight's blog. Also, nobody noticed but I had a nosebleed midway through round 7. True story.
