Concerning the Glorious Nat 20
Handsome Mike

Ah yes, the glorious nat 20, the most rarified of all Dungeons and Dragons dice rolls, and we rolled it with our team count this week. God is that satisfying! Thanks to everyone who showed up! Thanks to everyone who helped make Scott panic by rushing the bar! Thanks to the gentleman who followed the Free Beer Token instructions to cheerfully say “Hail Satan!” after ordering his beer from Scott and to the gentleman who overused “air quotes” while ordering, thus perplexing Scott.   Something else special you may have noticed: one of your very own quizzers brethren--er, sisteren??--took

I QUIZ I DIE I QUIZ AGAIN! And other Easter Reflections
Handsome Mike

Post-Easter reflection: Wouldn’t it have been rad, if in the Bible, as Jesus Christ was surrendering himself to be crucified to redeem humankind from sin and death, he had spray painted his teeth with chrome spray paint and shouted “I LIVE! I DIE! I LIVE AGAIN!” like one of the Warboys in Mad Max: Fury Road? And then God turns out to be Immortan Joe and the Apostle Peter just follows Jesus around on a horse-drawn cart playing heavy metal guitar riffs with fire coming out of the bridge of said guitar? Now that’s a Bible I could get behind! More talking snakes and people coming back from the dead as holy zombies and less rules!

Concerning Horns of Gondor and Obtuse Literary References
Handsome Mike

Well, the Horn of Gondor was blown for aid and everyone came charging back to quiz after our quieter quiz last week on account of Sportball Basket-hoop Championship Timez competing for Monday night attentions. Thanks to everyone who came out and stuck around to keep Andy around and scorekeeping for us. Also thanks to any and everyone who participated in the Twin Peaks Theme Quiz I hosted last week at Pies and Pints. That was a time and a half!   So first and foremost we have to address the name game this week. This was, hands down, one of the best clusters of team names we’ve had in awhile. Here

Concerning Sportball Distracting People from their Priorities
Handsome Mike

Goddamn sportball stealing (some of) my audience! Nothing like the Mariners’ opening day and the NCAA championship offering competition for quizzers attention. Still, 15 teams aint bad! And it was nice being able to recruit some new faces who came for sports and stayed for quiz into our geeky ranks.   Well, things are looking more or less back to normal with A Bunch of Cool Guys back in 1st for the second week in a row, this time with 87 points. They were trailed closely by Filibuster? I Hardly Know Her!

Concerning Equilibrium Regained and Fewer Team Names about My Butt
Handsome Mike

Well, A Bunch of Cool Guys did it. They got the win back after having been pestered by upstart other teams the last couple weeks. I would mention however that neither of said pestery teams were present last night, so extricate from that what you will, but I know for me it’s a way to bang a stick on the cages of A Bunch of Cool Guys because quizzers are hilarious when they’re in an enraged frenzy. I guess I’m a risk-taker at heart, risking getting beaten up and left behind a dumpster on  my way home some night.   2nd place ended in a two-way tie between No

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

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
