The Night I Kinda Got A Lapdance From A Dude Twice My Size
Quizmaster Soss

Well this was the most intimate evening I've had in a while. Thanks, you guys were really good. I would like to do it again sometime. This stupid warm February weather must've convinced all the less-dedicated to go jump in a lake or something, because tonight was all about the All-Stars. It's like when Survivor does a season of all the best players and makes them fight for my entertainment. That's like exactly what tonight was actually. Some of you are scrappy fighters and some of you who should be the fighters were just too busy twerking up in my business to fight and maybe that's why you didn't get first place... coughcoughstrugglebuscoughcoughalexcough. As expected it was

The Night I Will Eventually Get A Haircut
Quizmaster Soss

I'm gonna go ahead and address the elephant in the room right off the bat. There were a lot of teams tonight who scored three or fewer points on multiple rounds tonight. So while some of you may have had some trouble, there is one thing that's clear… I need a haircut. And not just a trim. It's like out of control. A rain forest on top of my head. I think, as a special prize next week, the winning team gets to give me a haircut live on stage.Another thing worth pointing out is that round eight was clearly the easy round of the evening. Here's a fun fact: every team that joker'd before Round Eight would have been better off saving it for the final round. And that includes

Three way tie
Nikki!

Greeting quizzers! We had a great time tonight but sure missed Jared. There was an incredibly close three-way tie between Turbo Skanks, The Struggle Bus and Kanye/Kanye 2020 at the end of Round 7 but round 8 separated  the men from the boys putting Turbo Skanks. Shout out to We are Fucktastic and I Only Care about Ghost Things Now for being my favorite teams names of the night. You are all amazing. Thank you for letting me be your quizmaster this week and hopefully I will see you all soon.

The Night I Saw B( .)( .)bs
Quizmaster Soss

You wouldn't know by the way I can't ever differentiate between the words dessert and desert, but I actually have a college degree in journalism! Pretty amazing that I was able to pull that off without even being able to read, huh? Graduation was a proud moment for me - comparable to the first time I saw boobies. Yeah... me, I saw boobies. Despite regularly still putting my shirt on backwards end and peeing sitting down, I managed to get a girl naked once! It was harder than graduating from college, but really it's all the same concept. Both felt like I was pulling a fast one on the universe. Anyway, none of that has anything to do with tonight's quiz. Yet again, these underdog teams

The Night Before One Of You Became A Billionaire
Quizmaster Soss

I know in the back of our minds we were all expecting an entire quiz devoted to the legacy of David Bowie. I, for one, am happy to say there wasn't even a hint of Bowie related material covered in tonight's quiz. I know it's not nice talk about him like this now that he died, and I know everyone is now pretending they adored everything about him, but I'll be the one to stand up and say it… his music was bad and his career was a joke. He was a good songwriter, it was just too bad about his voice. He and the Beatles are two artists I think should live on forever as bands that get covered, but I won't be sad if I never hear any of their original songs again. But even worse than his music,

The Night I Fell In Love With The Flute
Quizmaster Soss

Dwarves and dogs and dance videos. Pendleton and Panama and Peabo. Cleese and Connery and Crowe and Connolly. And Jethro Tull. What do all these things have in common? Nothing! No I'm just kidding - this is just a sampling of the many New Year's treats I handed out at tonight's quiz.It was a little bit rough for me considering all of the STDs I'm infected with at the moment, but everyone else had a great night and the scores over there show it. First place went to 'EllifIknow, and second place to the Struggle Bus! Third-place team, Cholula, would have tied for second if they had jokered the music round. Sorry to

The Night Hotter Than The Last
Quizmaster Soss

I think tonight must be proof that when it gets cold outside there's only one thing to do on a Tuesday night: go quiz your guts out at A Bar Named Sue!We had a packed house with a lot of packed teams and I can't imagine anywhere else I would rather be than yelling at all of you on a microphone. Christmas with my family last week was lovely, but they just don't give me the warm tingles in my heart like you guys do. And hopefully they don't read this blog.We had a first timer team win first place again tonight! That's like the second time in a month. I think the winter weather is bringing all the smart alecks into our cozy quiz and creating some real competition

Steve Harvey.....
Nikki!

Well, Jared was home for the holidays: home of the World Series Champions, the KC Royals, the quiz still went on. We can tell that Steve Harvey had a lasting impression with our teams Steve Harvey Says We Win, Steve Harvey's Other Mistake, and Steve Harvey's Harem. All of our Harvey teams did very well today with Steve Harvey Says We Win coming in first jumping ahead of Struggle Bus 7: The Struggle Awakens in the final round. Thanks everyone for a great time and Jared will be back with you next week. It was super awesome to hang out with you all and perhaps I will see you again soon.

The Night Jared Went Crazy
Quizmaster Soss

More than anything, I want you guys to take away this one simple fact from tonight: Christmas music sucks. Even if you try to dress it up like you're playing some rad old-school Nintendo game. Even if you get the coolest artists making the coolest current music to cover those Christmas songs, they still suck. We already have 277,499 versions of Silent Night… so that's it, no more, we're done. It's been done every possible way. And that number is accurate, by the way - I literally looked it up for the purpose of this blog to make my point.Stop making Christmas music! And stop listening to it too. They won't ever stop until we do. Let the revolution

The Night We All Liked That Apple
Quizmaster Soss

What tonight's quiz lacked in correct answers that were Fiona Apple, you guys made up for it in incorrectly guessing Fiona Apple. Seriously. Part of me knows that you guys got together and planned it… but a bigger part of me wants to believe we all just had Fiona Apple on the mind. How is it that a musician can release an album once every, like, 10 years and still keep a record contract? I mean, what if all you went to work was like once a month and all you did that day was put out crappy albums that don't live up to the wait ? I'll tell you what would happen. You'd be a famously depressed millionaire is what would happen. And I would have a little bit of a crush on you when I remembered

The Night I-Man Haffi Labba Labba Tek Smadi Mek Poppy-Show Fyai Madda
Quizmaster Soss

Shut up! Few things surprise me more in life than when a team of rookie quizzers walks away with the Golden Quizzly Cup. There was that time that I, for the first time as an adult, pooped my pants. We've all been there. There was the time my family discovered that my sister was living a double life with another family. There was the time Bruce Willis was dead the entire movie. And, actually, just yesterday I was pretty surprised when I didn't figure out until the end of the day that I had been wearing two pairs of underwear the whole day. These were all life-changing moments of surprise much like tonight when Kalabar's Revenge woke up this morning a bunch of n00bz and walked

The Night Before The Storm
Quizmaster Soss

Tonight's quiz was an epic memory that no one in attendance will ever forget. And you know I mean that because I used the word epic - which is, like, way totally played out. First, you guys did pretty well aside from a couple rounds where, I'm guessing, you weren't paying attention because it's totally not my fault. Secondly, I also killed it as I always do… serenading you with intriguing questions in my velvety sexual healing voice. Third, and this is where it gets crazy and a little bit less true: the entire bar broke out in a fight and Dan Aykroyd showed up out of nowhere and started punching the guys causing all the problems. I was there to protect the beautiful women

The Night I Wrote Your Name
Quizmaster Soss

I think I've underestimated how much you guys like Taylor Swift. If I ask questions about her, you all ace them. If I play her songs, you all dance to it. If I dress up like her, you all put the moves on me. Is there no end??Tonight's final scores, on average, where the highest I think I have ever seen. For Round Two alone, the average was just shy of literal perfection. I'm proud of all of you and I know that, deep down, each and everyone of us are turned on sexually by the saxophone in Careless Whisper.Our winners

The Night We Turned To Clay
Quizmaster Soss

I know most of you are crazed and giddy American Idol fans, but I'm going to make a bold statement here - that show has lasted about 20 seasons too long. I know what you're thinking... I'm a pretty bold man for having such an unpopular opinion. Say what you will about American Idol, but it has given us three unforgettable contributions to modern pop culture. First, Kelly Clarkson and all that is perfect about her. Second, Simon Cowell will be the man I strive to be until the day I die. And most importantly, the many exquisite talents and surprises of Clay Aiken! If his soothing, syrupy be voice isn't enough for you, there's always his boyish and charming personality. And if that's still not

The Night We Celebrate The Royals!
Quizmaster Soss

There are two things in this world I don't think I will ever get tired of: Rashida Jones and watching the Kansas City Royals make comeback wins. My whole life the Royals have done whatever the opposite of a comeback is… blowing games in the last couple innings is what I have known as long as I can remember. So the last couple years of baseball have been incredibly exciting for me! Somehow the Royals turned it around and are inventing creative ways to win instead of creative ways to lose. So yeah I poop my pants every time we score those 9th inning wins, but hopefully it's fun to watch for everyone else too.Sadly, this blog will be the end of my Kansas City Royals baseball

The Night Game One Went Into The Morning
Quizmaster Soss

It seems like it was only a year ago that we were having a wonderful night at A Bar Named Sue, quizzing our hearts out, and watching the Kansas City Royals in the World Series. In fact, it was a year ago and yet here we are again! Tonight was such a fun night to be hanging out with you guys while watching America's favorite baseball team win game one!Tonight's first place team was Dangles In The Outfield with a very solid low-80s total score, so they win 60 bucks courtesy of A Bar Named Sue. A handful of points behind them was Peter's Getting Fired, which wins them 40 bucks. Who said Kansas City is the only big winner tonight???
