The Night I Was On To Something Big
Quizmaster Soss

So we're back to doing tie breakers now huh?  It feels weird to even have a tie breaker without The Erector Set folks involved.  They had a long streak a while back where they kept tying every week (and usually losing the tie if I remember correctly).  Well anyway, a team full of shot takers faced off against an annoyingly sober team.  How'd that come to be?  The tipsy team should automatically win just for managing to score that many points after all those shots. But after a pretty gross tiebreak question, Theorem of Proximity poorly proved their name by being about 80% off from the Price Is Right style question.  Lucky

The Night I Learned Who I Really Am
Quizmaster Soss

I want a fashion trend to start where were all pushing around those half-size shopping carts. You know the ones that you can zip around the store real easy and pop radical wheelies with to impress the ladies? Those things put the fun in functional. I'm tired of carrying around my keys and wallet in my pocket… I need a basket on wheels at all times and I need it to be socially acceptable!The winners tonight won a little bit too much. Not only did they win first place and the 60 bucks that comes along with it, they also won our coloring contest. It just ain't right and they need to be taken down. Nevertheless, congrats are in order to the XXX-Men and their

The Night I Pretended To Love You
Quizmaster Soss

I'm gonna make this a mushy post and brag about how you guys are the absolute best group of quizzers I could hope for! From the trash talk, to the harassment, to the funny guesses, to the endless genuine compliments you guys throw at me… you're all just a lot of fun to be around and you're all invited to my bar mitzvah. But for real, I look forward to Tuesday nights and getting to see all you regulars and getting to meet out-of-towners and n00bs. I just wish I had more time to hang out but somehow I got suckered into being the one to pretend like I know all the answers.Okay: mushiness is over.

The Night I Got Stood Up Again
Quizmaster Soss

I invited President Donald T. Rump to come quiz with us tonight and yet again he didn't even give me the courtesy of declining.  Just a no show.  Again.  I'm really getting sick of this guy.  When you're invited to something, it's rude to just not reply.  At least send back a NO so that I know for sure not to save you a seat or order extra appetizers.  It's really embarrassing for the whole country, to be honest, when our very own president can't even be bothered to rsvp.   Whatever.  I'll be fine and I'll host a kickass quiz with or without him. But from now on I prefer it to be without him.  You ignore me that many times

The Night Aretha Didn't Have Our R.E.S.P.E.C.T.
Quizmaster Soss

I was shocked at how nobody knew Aretha Franklin's semi-hit "Eleanor Rigby." I mean… my understanding of each of you is that you go home to your mansions, with an aged scotch as a nightcap while you listen to vintage Aretha Franklin records from a mahogany Victrola. If it's not you guys keeping the memory of Aretha Franklin's deep and vast discography alive, then who is?? I suppose the reality is that we are all Millennials or close enough that the economy has screwed us and we live in crappy apartments and illegally download all our music… which isn't even in albums anymore-just a small collection of One Direction and Nicki Minaj radio megahits. But, I'll save my rant

The Night I Loved You Just A Little More Than You Loved Me
Quizmaster Soss

Happy Valentines Day, you beautiful buncha squishy reproductive beings.  I hope you went home tonight and made sure your loved one(s) understood the full impact that a handful of Barry White songs can have on the soul.  That's a dangerously fertile slow jam.   Tonight's quiz was extra special because I brought in a bunch of crafty junk so everybody could make me some very sweet Valentines cards. I got a lovely looking heart that said "Eat Shit," a "half-chub" penis made of construction paper with a real condom on it, a coloring of a bunch of hearts with a message that said "Get better crayons," and one team

The Night Everybody Was Happy To See Me, I Assume
Quizmaster Soss

You made it three whole weeks without getting to be in the presence of my fragrant warmth and infectious charm.  Almost a month.  I am sorry for putting you through that.  It's not fair that I withhold the goodies for so long.  Thankfully Gar stepped in and I'm forever thankful even though he probably made a lot of unwelcome advances and probably didn't even play any Kid Rock for you guys.  But he's still MY American Idol and I'll always welcome his advances. Tonight's visual round was all about identifying the middle child from various television shows. As a middle child myself, I appreciate that most of you actually knew who most of the characters were.

Februwhat?
Gar

And then suddenly, as if from nowhere, it was February. Time flies, especially when you're having a mix of fun and sheer existential terror. Last night was my second and final night in residence at the BNS Highland. It was a pleasure shouting at you all. Teams gave it their all last night, none more so than Groucho Marxists. You equally redistributed the losing to all other teams, and maintained a stranglehold on your own power. Congrats, comrades! In second, We Promised the Penguin. What horrible blood oath do you now owe to Oswald Cobblepot? It's probably best for us not to know. Well, if you'll excuse, I need to

Gar is an idiot man-child who likes cats, video games and beer.

Despite the occasional run-on sentence, Gar is a dedicated Grammar Nazi. He's also a giant stickler for rules, mainly because his anxious disposition precludes from him convincingly pulling off any untoward behavior of his own.

A social recluse by day, the prospect of booze-fueled battles of wits compels him to leave the warm, comforting glow of his computer monitor each night for pub quiz.

A Gar Named Sue
Gar

Well, that was just delightful. It was a pleasure sitting in for Quizmaster Soss and seeing all your wonderful faces. Although some were concealed during the photographs. In the lead, and apparently this is groundbreaking, Parental Supervision! You did an excellent job and if this was your first, I don't see it being your last. In second, Staff Infection. Might want to get that looked at, although it seems to be working for you! Well, you are all great and I am pumped to host here again. -Gar P.S. Remember how all the previous winters have been super mild? This return to an actual winter has been daunting.

The Night The British Were Coming
Quizmaster Soss

In preparing for tonight's quiz, I spent a good amount of time trying to find a recording of a British person doing a countdown I could use in the music round… which was BBC One lounge covers. So considering all of the songs were sung by Brits, it seemed like a good idea.Well, I did manage to find recordings like that, but the more I listened to them, the more I realized how perverted the British must naturally be. Every word they say ends with this orgasmic release of air. So instead of just simply saying "number one," an Englishman would say "number one-uhhhh." With this real gaspy sexual tone on that last syllable. It's really hard to explain it in written word. But you

There Must Be 69 Ways To Heave On Your Lover
Quizmaster Soss

There were a handful of things I learned tonight and I just quickly want to share them with you. First, a parabola actually has some kind of confusing mathematic definition. I was good at math, but I guess I always just thought it was a fancy word for a curve. Secondly, Saddam Hussein withdrew $900 million from bank in 2003. I think what I learned from that is that apparently there are banks out there that actually have $1 billion in them. That's crazy to me. And most importantly I learned about a sex position called 69, which is apparently overrated. One day when I have sex I'll get back to you guys and let you know if I agree with this assessment or not.Tonight was one of the

The Night I Worked So Hard For You (To Give You Money)
Quizmaster Soss

Our time together just goes by so fast. I didn't get a chance to talk to anyone about how slutty they were on New Year's Eve or how many fights they got in over Christmas. Sometimes this quiz just gets in the way of our time alone together, don't you think?That being said, it was fun to get back at it - and with a subtle nod to George Michael to boot. I'll never pass up an excuse to play Everything She Wants. Our winners tonight just returned from traveling the world and decided there's no better place than A Bar Named Sue.

Nothing like an electrical dumpster fire
Dr. Nick

I do always love showing up at my neighborhood drinking spot to give Jared a night off. This night, absolutely no exception. It was a great night of surprising surges and bombs in scores, leading to a win for a team who thought round eight was going to put them out of contention. Congratulations to Is 2016 Over Yet?, and the answer to that question is… three more miserable days, followed by a 2017 that is sure to be even worse. Just behind them, First Bumble Date was flying their new app flag high and cruised into second place after having to climb all over the bar to jockey for that position. Hope to see you again soon!

I Know What You Aren't Getting For Christmas
Quizmaster Soss

Here's hoping that we all get lots of cool things this Christmas. I'd like to make a few predictions. At least 95% of us will receive one or more pairs of socks. 100% of us will get a gift card, and 50% of them will be for Starbucks. More than a few of us will get some kind of bracelet that tells us how little exercise we're getting and how close to a heart attack we're approaching. One of you will find out you're going to be an aunt or an uncle. And not one of us will get a puppy. We're boring adults now, so glow sticks and remote control cars and fake dog poop don't excite us anymore I guess. Although I could definitely get daily use out of fake dog poop. The best gift I got so far

Night Glare On Overwhelm St.
Quizmaster Soss

My favorite thing about the holiday season, other than Jesus being born every year, and an endless onslaught of Christmas albums (even the Stone Temple Pilots lead singer put one out!) is driving around and making fun of people's Christmas lights. I'm not qualified for it… I've never once put up Christmas lights. But I consider myself an expert nonetheless so I'm confident in declaring that few people do a nice job decorating their house. And by "nice job," I mean completely draping every square inch of the house, every leaf on all the trees, and every blade of grass in the yard, with random, gaudy, and over-the-top Christmas vomit.This is the only way to

The Night Horses Were Not Harmed
Quizmaster Soss

This is pretty old news, but I recently found out that some IKEA's were putting horsemeat in their meatballs. And I'm like, "where do you even get horsemeat?" Obviously from horses, but why do people even have horses? In the same way your mom and all her friends don't really get why computers are so great, that's how I am with horses. I understand that people like them and a lot of people use them, I just don't really get why.Anyway, this is all to say that I want to offer my personal guarantee that there is no horsemeat in my quiz. There might be horsemeat used somehow in the making of your tennis shoes, or your pillows, and obviously your meatballs, but I don't use horsemeat
