Please Say the Baby
Osman

WeezyFest 2K16 kicked off last night. Don't get burned. While it is correct that Britney Spears had a song about prerogatives, Bobby Brown had a slightly more famous song about prerogatives. It's Bobby, bitch. I gotta say that the best team name I've heard in a long time is "Halal, is it meat you're looking for?". It was probably cheating business, but still not bad. I even sang it once into the microphone. Sorry about that. The main thing I want to say is my friends and I have this thing we say to each other. You see, once upon a time, my friend Rachel went on like a 80 mile bike ride and when she showed us a route on a map, one of us (don't even remember who)

Your Bar Is Louder Than My Bar
Kirk

Wow, Blackhawks fans are LOUD!!  The Maple Leaf Pub is always a fantastic play to both watch hockey and play Geeks Who Drink pub quiz, and it takes an especially skilled substitute quizmaster to strategically place the questions around Blackhawks goals - which came in rapid succession tonight! Busy night with the aroma of deliciously grilled steaks wafting through the bar - six teams made it through the entire night and we had an incredibly impressive rally at the end to take things home tonight. Coming from nowhere, Soon To Be 40-Year Old Virgin played a 15/16 round 8 with their joker to capture the top of the podium, stealing the #1 prize from Caitlyn

Texas-transplant and glad to be here...Pennsylvania and the midwest both suck, so don't move there. Huge theatre fan, so expect me to look down my nose at you during Broadway-music rounds, and I kinda like sports too, especially the rules. Be nice to me, and I'll typically find a way to get alcohol to you.

"The Crow" By Edgar Allan Poe
Osman

Maybe I should keep my political views to myself. If you want to vote for Trump, you have the right to do that. But I have to right to tell you that you're a racist. You see, I'm brown. And when I hear this man says things like we need to build a "real wall" or that we need to put people into "camps" (just until we figure out what's going on!), I get pretty frightened. Not like a bullshit feeling, it scares me. And if I'm going to be profiled for things that terrorists do, then dammit white people, you're going to have to explain this fascist bigot surging in the polls. Fascist is not an exaggeration. Look up how fascists come to power and you'll see Trump's campaign. Also, A WALL???

The Guy Playing Table Hockey Came in his Pants
Osman

Almost finished on time this week! Almost... Big ups to all the people who tried to guess a Hebrew letter with assorted doodles. I love the ambition but I also laugh at your shortcomings. Also, calling Batman and Robin a "cinematic abortion" seems a bit harsh. That movie isn't even slightly cinematic. It's more of a literal abortion. Sarah Palin wants us to stick to guns, God, religion and the Constitution. Is she out of touch or am I? Cuz I'm good without like three of those things. Plus, we don't really need to include God AND religion. Seems redundant. To be fair though, I like dogs AND puppies.  In the end, "Choking Hazard (_)==D~" put up

Little Fat Man Who Sold His Soul
Osman

Two weeks in and still doing the same shit tho. This week's song train was pretty dope. It worked out to Lips Are Moving In Stereo Heartbreak Hotel California Girl on Fire Water Burn. Burn motherfucker. Burn. Gotta give a shout out to the lady who contested that "VR PORN WAS ALL OVER CES THIS YEAR", and looking up filthy videos. Love the ambition lady. You're too excited tho. Also, we asked about Jim Bowie and a super-evil type of smuggling that possibly made him rich. When you think, "What's the most evil type of smuggling you could think of in American history? Just the one worst type of smuggling that really makes you think, "Man, that's definitely something

YO AND WHERE IS DESTINY'S CHILD FROM???
Osman

H-TINE HOLD IT DINE Let's get one thing straight: Seth Curry is not and will never be Steph Curry. That's like when you wanted to eat Famous Amos cookies but your family could only afford Heinous Anus cookies. I'd love to take credit for that but it's a Doug Benson joke. Also, asking if Cloris Leachman is over 100 is cold-blooded man, yall changed overnight. She not even 90 yet, yall got her one foot in the grave man. She's gonna haunt the F out of your when you she gets a chance, you watch. Benedict Cumberbatch is sexy. I feel like women have been too vocal for men to deny this now. But good lord he looks like a rodent. He looks like real pervy.

Up for Grabs
Osman

I gotta say, "Trump and El Chapo 2016" blew it. They held a commanding lead through 5 rounds and inexplicably bounced off the face of the planet. The result was a field day as seven teams passed them and fought for the top two. In the end, Santa's Floppy Handshakes took the crown, giving some lady name Pavi (sp?) a memorable 30th birthday. Hopefully not as memorable as her night ;) Special shout out to the lady who won mad bonus drinks. She proved that no matter how broke you are, you can still get hammered. Kudos to you lady. Meanwhile, nobody knows what the Royal Society is and you can "see the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll" on the Good Ship Lollipop. Not New

I think his name is Fred Savage?
Osman

Quiz. Steaks. Debauchery. Typical Thursday night raucous at the Maple Leaf Pub. Here's what we learned: more people are pro-Manuel Noriega than pro-Optimus Prime, Randy Newman has lost a ton of times, and Nic Cage is a maniac but doesn't even hold a candle to Dennis Hopper, who incidentally held six sticks of dynamite to his chair to promote a movie in Houston. And do you hear about it on the liberal media? Of course not. You know what else? A lot of people think that Penny Marshall straight up killed a guy.  Also, Rodney Dangerfield snorted real lines of coke at his audition for Caddyshack. That's a power move if I've ever heard of one. Meanwhile,

Return of the Mack
Osman

Much like our colonizers, Thanksgiving has come and gone. Similarly, the effects will be felt for generations to come. I had so much food. I had turkey with a tamarind glaze, beef round with gravy, gumbo, mac and cheese, yams, stuffing, roasted potatoes, biscuit, apple pie, pecan pie, pumpkin cheesecake and a coke zero. I even had some of the asparagus soup my mom brought for some reason. It was ok. Quiz returned one week later and we burned the goddamn house down. Steaks were flying, I got hooked up with a slice of tenderloin for some reason and the true homie put together a bomb ass frito pie for me. Thanks yo. Also, another true homie, Quizmaster Will showed up

Double your Osman, double your fun
Osman

First night at the Maple Leaf Pub, my new permanent second venue. Rowdy bunch of hockey hooligans that like it when I cuss at them. I think we'll get along well. As usual, I wrecked it. Typical. High-five. For the second night in a row, I had a tie-breaker. What a country. At least this time it was between 1st and 2nd place so nobody had to truly swallow the block of licorice that is defeat. "Taco Emoji" pulled out an impressive win over "Father of the C.H.U.D." to claim the first place prize. I don't know what a "C.H.U.D." is but I'm sure it's disgusting. Special shout out to "Young Swag Champs". They finished in last place. Another special shout out to the best and

Aaagh! It's Skynet!
RameyO'Brien

These robot devices are getting out of control! I am very much a believer in "Skynet" and it's happening, right before our eyes! One of the robots I hate the most is those paper towel dispensers that detect (supposedly) you waving your hand underneath so it can dispense 4" of paper towel. Except a) who the fuck can dry their hands with only 4" of towel and 2) those things NEVER detect me waiving my hand underneath. I always look like I'm doing some kind of crazy dance cause I'm just waiving my hands underneath it like a madman, waiting for my 4".   Well Skynet tried to jack with us and we made it out just fine, (take THAT, Skynet!). And what can I say, it

Trip Down Memory Lane
RameyO'Brien

My 100th quiz is coming up, which mens my 100th blog. I figured we could take a trip down memory lane and revisit my very first one: "My name's Ramey, (pronounced ray-me), and I'm your newest Quiz Master. Big Ben Tavern is my new home. It's a cool place that's been around for about a year and a half. The staff is super sweet, and always keep my glass full of ice-cold beer, (people after my own heart). The teams I have met there so far are also really nice. There's a few regulars, but from what I've seen so far, there are always new additions that wander in wanting to play. That's fine by me, the more the merrier!   A little about me: I've been talking ever

What Are You Wearing?
RameyO'Brien

I'm back! Sorry I've been away for a couple of weeks but I had a death in the family. But I'm back to doing what I love! I hope y'all had fun while I was gone. Believe me, I missed y'all!   I was a little surprised that no one was dressed up last night with it being so close to Halloween. Of course, I didn't either but whatever, I entertain you enough. Can't you get dressed up for me? Haha just kidding. As long as you show up to play I'm happy. :)   So, come on back next week, where we'll do it all again with me driving the wheel. Thursday at 8pm. See y'all there!

We didn’t need roads anyway…
CLAY-TON, The Impostor

Hello, I’m Clay-Ton The Imposter! You might remember me from such Quizzes as all of August and most of September here at Maple Leaf Pub. Yes, I was your scorekeeper and judgmental bastard alongside Ramey for the doggiest days of summer before the powers that be dictated I was needed elsewhere. So I went, saying goodbye to all the Canadiana and such that makes the MLP one of the coolest drinkeries in the whole Houston metro area.   But as the saying goes, paths that cross may cross again, and they did tonight.   I’m in a bit of a reflective mood this evening. As you all know, yesterday was “Back To The Future” day. I needn’t

By The Hammer Of Koth!
Cody H.

Hello new friends! I filled in for Ramey tonight here at Maple Leaf Pub, and the experience was wonderful. I don't know much of anything about hockey, but getting to sit in a penalty box was a neat experience I can't get much anywhere else. My favorite beer was on tap too, so bonus!   Anyway, hi! Fifteen teams, more or less, tried their hand at quiz tonight, but only two could walk away with a prize. Feel The Burn was on top going into Round 8, but a late surge from Les Quiserables managed to give them First, dropping The Goonies down to Third and out of the prizes. Farts, great Round
