We're Back, Baby!
RameyO'Brien

Welcome back y'all! It's been awhile. We have only had quiz twice since the beginning of April cause of the hockey playoffs. Well the NHL Finals schedule was just released and there are no more games on Thursday, so quiz is back to it's normal schedule: Thursday nights at 8pm.   It might take a week or two to get back to rolling with the crowds that we had before the break, but I'm positive we can do it! Last night was a good start, with 14 teams right out of the gate!   We also finally got a break from all this rain. It's been crazy here lately. I managed to survive but I have a lot of friends that lost their homes and/or cars. I hope all of you made

Do I Know You?
RameyO'Brien

Welcome back! It's beem a while. Hockey Playoffs have been in full swing so I hope whoever you were rooting for is still in it. My team's not.    Smallest group I've ever seen at MLP was last night. But I was stoked at those faithful who came and newbies who joined. It was a blast! We even had some Roller Derby girls in the crowd. It was awesome!   I don't think we are going to have quiz next week, as round 3 of the Playoffs is starting up. Don't worry, we'll be back to our normal schedule again soon. Until then, stay sharp and keep drinkin'!

Light the Lamp!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

It was another fun night at the MLP. That's going to be the last one for a few weeks, as we shut it down for hockey playoffs. I have no idea what to expect when all you rowdy hockey fans ain't there. I have truly enjoyed working for y'all. There have been nights there that I would not trade for all the tea in China! This has been one of my favorite venues to work. So don't fret, we'll be back after the Stanley Cup has been won, (hopefully by the Red Wings). There is still Quiz all over town if you need to get your fix, so don't stress. Maybe we'll even run into each other! So that's it for me for now. Have fun watching the playoffs, and we'll see you in a few

What Are You Watching?
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

I'm sitting here writing my blog while watching tv. I've got some Seinfeld episodes on my DVR. I never get tired of that show. I don't even care that it's nothing but reruns. It's one of those shows that will never die. There's a lot of shows like that on my DVR. I could watch old reruns of Sunny all day long. Simpsons died a long time ago, but I still enjoy the old ones. Nothing new, only season 10 or earlier, (what are they on now, season 52?). Seasons 1-10 were the Phil Hartman episodes. Man I miss that guy. There's a lot on TV nowadays I just can't stand. If one more person tells me how much they love Big Bang I'm going to scream! That show is pure shit.

Can You Hear Me Now?
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

I HATE MY PHONE! It is driving me crazy! It's newest trick is shutting off all by itself whenever it feels like. The battery already gives me problems. It doesn't hold a charge for shit. I guess I can't complain too much, it has given me almost 4 years of good service. Yes, you heard correctly, 4 freakin' years! Of course, I'm also old enough to remember days without cell phones. Kids nowadays don't know the pain of having to use a pay phone. Hell by today's standards, what's a pay phone?!?  And what's a 7-digit number?!? If that band had tried calling that Jenny chic today, they would be stopped by the operator telling them they must first dial the area code. So

No Leaf Blowers Please
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

I'm sitting in my backyard under my gazebo, jamming some Beastie Boys, trying to think of something to write about and I can't focus on anything cause the neighbor is just blasting his leaf blower and it's getting on my last nerve.  Anywho, another fun night last night, even though it was the smallest night for MLP I've ever seen, (only 15 teams). It did give me a chance to mingle a little more though. I met some people from Vermont, Canada, and even someone who just moved here from Armenia.  One of the teams even said they were going to start reading this thing, (that's a first)! If so, all I have to say is: purple monkey dishwasher! Let's see if

Let the Fun Begin (Again)
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Blah blah blah blog. Blah blah blah something interesting. Blah blah blah current events. Blah blah blah something about quiz. Blah blah blah did you see that? Oh hi! I didn't see you there! Another fun night at the MLP! We had all kinds of things to entertain us last night. Of course there was lots of hockey; plenty of teams (22); people getting drunk and rowdy; and to top it all off, girls dancing on tables! I dare you to find a more fun night! I even ran into an old/new friend last night, roller derby girls all the way from Dallas! It's a small world after all. It's Friday the 13th again, a day which I love! Most people shy away from it, but 13 is my

For Science!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Another fun night in the books, but that's not what's on my mind today...I'm curious about something: do eggs freeze? I'm a curious kind of guy and when I think of something I don't know the answer to, I don't just run to Google. So when my girlfriend and I were talking the subject of frozen eggs came up. So, I did what any amateur scientist would do, I threw a couple of eggs in the freezer. Do you think they freeze solid inside? Will it not completely freeze and just be like an egg slushee? Will it not freeze at all? Who knows?!? So, I just stuck a couple of eggs in my freezer. I don't know: a) why I'm so curious about this and b) why I've never thought of
