Rock around the Caucus!
Patrique

I won't lie to you, there were a lot of Caucus-themed teams last night!    Caucus so Hard Suck My Caucus Caucus? You Don't Even Know Us!   I realize there is a very real theme there, which lends itself to the Caucus similarity to a phallic synonym. My challenge to you, quizzers, is to come up with some non-sexual Caucus-pun team names. Use your imaginations, folks! Best Team names get a prize!   Last night, we had rounds on pretty weird things, actually. Did you all get the gist of that? No? well I'm not going to explain it to you, just get your lederhosen

Patrick hails from the mean streets of (suburban) Detroit. Quizzing since he was in middle school, he is no stranger to trivial knowledge. His friends posit that is the reason his head is so large.

Outside of the bar you can catch him being handy around the house, hiking, paddling, and doing whatever he can to be outside.

He will tell you he has a healthy interest in Arrested Development, but you should know that whenever you bring up the show, it shifts a little bit. 

Patrick was recruited by GWD on the not-as-mean streets of Boston. They trained him and shipped him to Austin, TX, where he currently works. The Austin staff has been on record saying how great it is to have him in the rotation, often citing his charm, wit, experience, French kissing abilities, and his humility.

Posse In Effect Indeed
Rev. Lindsay

No mentions of Abe Vigoda’s passing in last night’s team names.  I assume it has something to do with the fact that no one really knows who he is or why he’s relevant.  It’s not like I watched every episode of Barney Miller or anything, or have frame of reference other than it was a show that’s from the 70’s and 80’s.  But I just looked at his IMDB and apparently if there was a cop show in that era, he was on it.  Oh, and the Godfather movies.  Anyway, I only know him from the Beastie Boys song, so I opened quiz with it last night.  There was also a site I heard of a thousand years ago called

Lindsay enjoys writing bios for other people much more than for herself, and she really hates people (herself included) who speak in the third person. 

Buy her a shot of fireball to avert the pain of this bio writing.

Rule 3.3.1

It happens from time to time. Well, really not that often. What you ask?   Geeks Who Drink QuizMaster Rule 3.3.1   If a quizmaster (heretofore known as QM) shall unwittingly reveal an answer, they will finish their current drink as quickly as possible.   Bam. There it is folks. I just let you into some Geeks Who Drink lore right there.    Thanks for quizzing last night, y'all! 18 teams met under the big top for some great questions.   We had questions about Current Events, Dolly Parton Covers, Fictional Animals, and Bach!

Your Mom Is A Gas Giant
Rev. Lindsay

Hooray for quiz!  Hooray for Red’s Porch!  Hooray for YOU! Fun facts: the first quiz I ever played was at Red’s… way back when we had the Whedonverse theme quiz, I played there in order to prep beforehand, not realizing I could play anywhere.  We got eighth place out of 50 some odd teams.  Thank sweet baby J (Joss, not Jesus) that most of the questions were Firefly related otherwise we would have been boned.  Anyway… I told you that to tell you this: I’m so happy I finally got to host at the first place I played.  It felt like a graduation of sorts. The real heroes of course are you, the players.  We

All Reggae Sounds the Same

Hey there, everyone. Amber here, subbing at Red’s Porch, one of my favorite venues. Where everybody knows my name, the staff is ever so sweet and helpful, and my quizzers are both nuts and precious. After all, only a group of stone-cold weirdos would come out on a Tuesday night to quiz! That’s why y’all are beloved by your hosts. Round 1 tonight was on homophones, where we remembered the Titans. Round 2 tonight was reggae covers, and we learned that all reggae…well, it just sounds the same. Although everyone agreed the Sam Smith cover was badass! Round 3 was nostalgic for me. Back when I was just a regular joe quizzer, this would have been the round that I

In Which I Offer a Prayer of Thanksgiving. Kinda.
Professor D

Whoo, hey! It’s Thanksgiving tomorrow! With that in mind, I’m just gonna offload some of the stuff that I’m probably not supposed to bring up when I’m eating with my family tomorrow. In that vein, how about I offer a Thanksgiving prayer?   To all the gods, real and unreal, who care to take notice:   Today, we are mindful of the things for which we are thankful, and we remember the thousands of people who worked, suffered, and died to make America the land that it is today; mainly Native Americans, slaves from Africa, and the working poor. We are thankful that we don’t live in the 1800’s anymore, as what a shit time

My uncle used to call me "professor" when I was a kid. I'm not really a professor. I drive a truck that might be older than you. I do the best Hank Hill impression you'll ever hear, unless you know Mike Judge. I haven't updated my Wordpress blog in a really long time. I live with my wife, Deirdre, here in Austin. She's a badass floral designer and excellent lady.

A Shocking New Statistic

Usually I'm pretty averse to new statistics but since there were at least 3 team names that had to do with this today, I'm going to pull the trigger:   A New study finds that 1 in every 2 and a half men is HIV Positive   Oooh there it is. I feel uncomfortable in my own body right now.    Thanks for braving the chilly weather to quiz it up with me yesterday! We had the heaters turned up to 11 though, and I was actually kinda sweaty.

The Cubs and the Mets were playing last night in the background of quiz, and every time the Cubs went to the bullpen I thought Henry Rowengartner would come out to the mound. Rowengartner of little fame, had a tendon refused tightly in his elbow, and was suddenly able to throw some serious gas.    His career flamed out because of an insatiable need for Hot Ice, in addition to exploring his changing body. Luckily though, the Cubs won the World Series that year.  Is this the year? Back to the Future 2 definitely thinks so.   Thanks to the 12 teams that came out last night!
