Concerning Tight Asses and Badgery Teams
Handsome Mike

Only in Seattle. Only in Seattle would you have a team named Michael’s Tight Ass ;) in a bid to make me sweat on the mic, whose members then come up after the quiz and say “Hey, I’m sorry if you felt too objectified by that team name, we just thought it was funny.” I assure you guys, no harm at all, everyone laughed, and I’m vain as fuck, and my man-butt milkshake brings all the...quizzers to the...yard, or, um, something. Wow I’m bad at this.   Also, we seem to have an uprising on our hands here. The folks

Concerning Bachelor Party Shenanigans Giving Me a Handsome Hangover
Handsome Mike

Holy headaches, Batman. Having recently returned from a weekend-long bachelor party bender, Michael is doing that thing where it hurts to even look at booze so he’s swearing off substances and villainy for the foreseeable future, or “until this Friday” to be more realistic. I also introduced a friend to the wonderful psychonautical adventure of salvia, along with the iconic “Dude I don’t think it’s working. When will I know it’s working?” from him, to which I replied, “Don’t worry. You’ll know it when the ceiling starts talking to you,” at which point he said, “What are you even talking

Concerning a Bunch of Cool Returns to Glory
Handsome Mike

Well, well, well. Looks like A Bunch of Cool Guys finally decided to show up again, taking first for the first time in about 4 weeks. It’s part of life, the ups and downs, the strikes and gutters, but the Dude[s] Cool Guys abide. They’re just getting their groove back after the hiatus of Bad Penmanship Guy (who redeemed himself by winning a bonus question beer by having good enough Penmanship to spell “NFL” legibly. Progress!) who was busy getting fathered

Concerning the Horror of Broken Realities
Handsome Mike

My world is broken, for there is nothing left that is sacred and stable in my life. The last bastions of all I believe in have been degraded and deteriorated, for neither Kitten Mittens nor A Bunch of Cool Guys have won this week, and this is my reaction.   However, it was another group of regulars who rose up and slayed it, er, slew...it?

Concerning Kitten Uprisings and Chewbacca's Private Life
Handsome Mike

Aaannd we’re back with “dat momentum” that I like seeing with back to back huge weeks at our humble, not-so-little quiz.     Also, we have what appears to be the makings of a new empire with Kitten Mittens taking 1st place two weeks in a row and several times prior. Pretty good batting average. They said they are prepping for Geek Bowl. DO LIKEWISE! I’m beginning to worry that A Bunch of Coolidge Guys (another festive holiday variant!) are getting soft after Bad

Concerning #SCROTUS!
Handsome Mike

21 teams! Our 2017 record! This is what I’m talkin’ about! Any doubts I had about our awesomeness are once more quieted. We had our regulars, we had our walk-ins and new faces, and we had a super awesome time. Also Scott definitely earned his keep behind the bar last night, so everyone give him an awkward high five next time you see him and say “Way to go man...you..um..really did a good job at doing your job last week at the quiz night, and you keep up the good work...um...man.” Or something.   Kitten Mittens took first with 81 points and A Bunch

Moose, Lambs, Mooselambs, and other Low Hanging Ungulate Fruit
Handsome Mike

Well, it finally happened, but A Bunch of Cool Guys are back on the top of the heap. In other unsurprising news the Patriots won the Super Bowl and the sun rose today. But at least in this era of anxiety and flux, we have a few constants.   Second place went to $now Me the Money, and with the dollar sign affectation their team name now sounds like a Kanye West B-Side about his loves of cocaine and cash. Good job guys!   Best Team

Concerning the Emergence of BOOB TEAM and Other Noted Notables
Handsome Mike

Aaand we’re back! Regulars gonna reg, as they say, and some of the familiar faces missed last week have returned like prodigal sons and daughters to the promised land of mixed religious metaphors.   Tonight DID have a couple surprises, however.   Kitten Mittens, who won 1st sort of but didn’t take 1st at first, actually took 1st when the 1st place team for most of the quiz, Demogorgon in Chief

FRESH BLOOD IN THE WINNER'S CIRCLE
Handsome Mike

Well well well. Looks like things are shakin’ up. We got our scorekeeper on lock by getting 18 teams, which was boss, but bosser still is the fact that we did it with lots of new teams, in the stark and startling absence of some of our most regular regulars. Yes, there were no Kitten Mittens or A Bunch of Cool Guys to be seen. Maybe they’re just taking a break, or maybe the quiz gods are asleep. Regardless, it was nice to see fresh blood in the winners’ circle, and also to frustrate the aforementioned teams by complaining both when

Concerning 4 Days Until Apocalypse and Son/Daughter of Bad Penmanship Guy
Handsome Mike

Well. It’s that week. 4 days until the beginning of the end. 4 days until the ascension of the 1st horseman of the apocalypse. 4 days until Donald Trump becomes the logical conclusion to the American Dream, that money and celebrity can buy power, that people will vote for you if you’re loud and obnoxious enough with a brand to back it. But, in spite of the looming darkness ahead, there is a silver lining: it gave you guys so much ammo for your team names.   TRUMP RELATED TEAM NAMES FOR TONIGHT:   Majestic Yams Commander in Queef 4

Concerning a Glorious Leap Back Off the Wagon By Yours Truly
Handsome Mike

Well I’m finally back off the wagon after just about a month of not drinking any alcohol and very little caffeine due to my ulcer, and while I’ve gotta say I feel fantastic physically from removing so many toxins from my diet, it sure was fucking miserable giving up a couple of my favorite creature comforts. Here’s to lessons learned and subsequently ignored! Fire up the booze and sling it at my face!   Last night was also special in that one of our newest quizmistresses, Tanya, got to spread her wings at our quiz tonight, which was fitting because she was once a quizzer herself like

Concerning New Years, LSD, and Dick Punching
Handsome Mike

“I come here to quiz as a leisure activity, Mike. If you  guys ever do a math round again, I’m driving to the Geeks Who Drink corporate offices in Denver to punch dicks.” That was pretty much that attitude to the round in question, and also my favorite quotation from any quizzer in recent history. Having a guy jovially threaten to punch corporate dick. YAY SEATTLE!   Anywho, another week passes without me being able to do any drinking because of my stomach ulcer that I got from all the drinking. But as it turns out LSD isn’t bad for an ulcer (probably?), so guess what I

Well we still managed to have a decent little quiz in spite of the holiday hooplah competing for people’s attention. Thanks to everyone who showed up. Great to see loyal regulars and new faces alike.   80’s Pop Culture Deadpool Bingo: George Michael for the Win! Won first place with 81 points, and also “Best Use of a Heartless Team Name that was Immediately Dated and Irrelevant the Next Morning When I Wrote this After Hearing that Princess Leia Died.”   A Bunch of Cool Guys and George

Concerning Inoffensive and Inclusive Non-Specific Politically Correct Seasonal Greetings

Ho ho ho, Merry Fucking Christmas Inoffensive and Inclusive Non-Specific Politically Correct Holiday Seasonal Greetings. Santa’s sack has certainly been a very mixed bag for Ol’ Handsome Mike. On one hand, Santa gave me victories in all 3 of my Fantasy Football matchups on Monday, 2 of which will advance me to the championshipsWOOO!! However, to punish me for all the wrong I done, he also brought me a parking ticket and a stomach ulcer, the care for which includes not drinking booze or coffee for a month, avoiding red meat and fried foods, and

Concerning Ties, Ties, and more Ties
Handsome Mike

Well that was eventful.   It’s not often that quiz ends in a tie for 1st place. It’s not often we have to do a Sudden Death Round. That ends in a ite. And then a SECOND Sudden Death round. And then...a SECOND tie, and then after ties in both Sudden Death rounds, a final decision made with a tie-breaker question. But it does happen, and where better than here at the Flying Bike? It certainly added another layer of excitement to an already busy 18 team quiz.   I mean, of course it was between the old and bitter rivalry between A

Quizpocalypse Now
Handsome Mike

There was this moment when I walked into quiz, out from the frigid, inhospitable weather into a desolate bar with 3 to 4 tables quietly talking amongst themselves when I thought we’d have a quiet night, that people weren’t brave or bold enough to weather the weather to play quiz. This feeling lasted until almost 20 minutes before quiz started when the doors burst down with a host of last minute teams, 18 in total, to pack the house to the point that there were no free seats left in the place. Time and time again, I am never let down by the awesomeness of this quiz night, and you folks really know how to help me kick of the night right.
