Montpuhhhhh
Akash

Yesterday, I was... what's that word for like, sad that a thing you wanted to happen didn't happen but happy because everything sort of went well anyway? And that people tried really hard and you like them as humans? That's how I felt about the Rockets. That’s not how I felt about quiz. I was pumped for quiz. As always.   We had fourteen teams brave the it-might-rain-maybe and their Rockets hangovers to play quiz with us last night. I think that I’ve been at this for long enough to start recognizing the sometimes-regulars among you—I hope to convert you to regular-regulars. (As you might have figured

Holy Cow!
Akash

It was said once that the author VS Naipul could "distinguish the death of an ordinary ox, which, being of concern to no one, may be put quickly out of its agony, from that of a sacred cow, which must be solicitously guarded so that it can die its agonizing death without any interference."What an interesting thought. Comedy, free speech, taking offense, punching up vs. punching down--these are all things that I've been thinking about since last night. I'm not going to draw any tidy conclusions, but suffice it to say that I don't think there are very many sacred cows at quiz. Totally unrelated: did you know that Wednesdays steak night at Little Woodrow's Midtown??? Mmm-mmm!

It's Important To Wear Pink On Wednesdays
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: We are NOT going to be having quiz at Little Woodrow’s Midtown next Wednesday, May 6th, because there are more pressing things occurring: namely, Game 2 of the Rockets’ second-round series. I’m glad that you won’t have to deal with a very distracted me during quiz. Go forth! Cheer for the Rockets unburdened! Back to your regularly scheduled blog: Not necessarily on your answer sheets though. I’ll explain more later. We had a great time at Little Woodrow’s in Midtown last night, as usual. Things got a little rowdier than usual. I’d

Inside Edition: SVU: Quiz Edition: Houston
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

“A syndicated newsmagazine includes investigative reports, interviews with newsmakers, human interest stories, and celebrity and pop-culture features.” That’s what Google has to tell me about Inside Edition, a show that is about as old as I am—we both debuted in the 1989—I think I have a higher IMDB rating tho. For realsies, the title of our blog today is obviously referring to the fact that due to the vagaries of the weather, we played quiz inside Little Woodrow’s Midtown. It ended up being a pretty nice night out, but the threat of rain kept us decidedly indoors. It was a breeze, tho, because of (1) Maggie's unbelievable scorekeeping skills, and

Sex Panther!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Greetings, faithful quizzers!  Last night marked another lovely quiz on the patio at Little Woodrow's in Midtown, as well as another tax deadline in our wake. Thanks for coming out and spending it with me!  Although I think folks must have heard that Akash was going to be MIA this week and stayed home to cry, because only 13 teams turned out for last night's bloodbath. But we still had a great time, didn't we? As always, the quiz covered all manner of topics, ranging from the unpleasant and inevitable (death and taxes) to Tarzan to roadtripping across the US. Because Little Woodrow's Midtown is awesome, I had a few extra prize beers to hand out, so last night the

The SAT Requires You To Write In Cursive
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

I broke my covenant with y’all. I’m sorry. Let’s get this out of the way. I normally give out a Best Wrong Answer prize. (Note the capitalization—it’s serious business.) Tonight, a team swayed me with their penmanship. I gave a beer to them instead. Shout out, Crimean Yacht Club, you earned this. Also I didn’t see any really good wrong answers. I thought a team had written “chai” for “chi” in re: to a “Chinese energy force that you’re always trying to center,” but they actually had just scratched out a letter and then wrote the correct answer. The dim lighting at my grading dept. desk confused

Never Wearing a Graphic Tee To Quiz Again
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

You might think that the title of this blog is a very lame/belated April Fool’s joke. It is not. I guess I’ve made some friends and been accepted, because I totally did get my utterly meaningless graphic t-shirt handily dissected by some very pinch-y regulars. They also managed to win our T-Ball Award for sucking less than one other team. So here’s to you, Truenogatos/Thundercats—you got to feel up the QM and you got a free domestic bottle. Savor that Lone Star (or whatever) and cherish it as a symbol of our friendship. We had a pretty good turnout last night. I was worried about rain/being inside (pretty sure Dante wrote a book

Getting Into the Swing of Things
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Yesterday, I was excited. I knew that the patio at Little Woodrows (Midtown) would be a popular place to be, because it was an absolutely gorgeous day. And packed it was. We had twenty-five teams playing with us last night! It was crazy fun. I saw a lot of familiar faces, and a whole lot of new ones that I hope to see again. I’ll be looking for your team of super-smart friends, Sexy Chupacabras (incidentally, they were our T-Ball Award winners tonight).  The team name theme for last night was getting old. Because I recently got a little older, and I am now officially in my mid-late twenties, whatever the fuck that means. Many of you rolled your eyes
