My second week as quizmaster at Nick’s Off Market in Ballard, and you guys didn’t disappoint. The spicy chicken sandwich was delicious, you ten teams were cooperative, inquisitive, playful, and completely awesome. There were corgis, there were drunk people, there were juggernauts, there were two questions each about Fringe and The X-Files, there were my 49ers kicking the crap out of the Arizona Cardinals, and so many other sweet, sweet things.
With only one point separating the top two teams, I’m the Juggernaut, Bitch! came out with a $25 gift certificate to Nick’s Off Market, while The Continentals (“Feel free to check out my collection of erotic Hummel figures”) got $15. Maybe if we got even more teams to fill out both floors of the venue, we can also give out prizes for third place. You know, so you can drink even more alcohol.
And now my own prizes:
Prettiest Corgi: Murphy (sorry Charlie)
Best Team: Whoever bought me that pint at the end of the night
Best Team Name: We Are Younger than You
Best Wrong Answer: “One of the guys with a mullet” instead of “George Clooney on Roseanne”
Second-Best Wrong Answer: The team that kept on writing “Baba Booey” instead of correct answers like “Boo Radley,” “Betty Boop,” and “The Boomtown Rats.”
Best Bartender: Eric (he’s also the only one)
Worst Bartender: Murphy the Corgi
Best Audio Clip: Demitri Martin’s bit on videogames
Worst Explanation by a Quizmaster: My explanation of how San Jose sucks balls
See you next week at 8 pm. Let’s get this shit done!
