Queen Elizabeth III: Mecha Monarch
VoldeMartini

We only had three bits and we didn't expect such a rush.     And a rush we did have. Thought we were going to have a repeat of last week, but you guys pulled through with the telephone tree. I like to imagine you all like a PTA, talking about who is going to bring the Sunny D and Cheese Ritz to the next meeting.     So, you guys have heard about this dadbod thing, right? Leo DiCaprio struttin' his stuff on the beach, all pale and with jiggly. This morning while browsing the Facebook during my oral hygiene ritual,

Marzipanties Glue Shoe Dumpster Ale.
VoldeMartini

Apparently it was finals week at some of the higher learning institutions here in San Antonio, dropping our teams down to 5. Technically 4, but Team Car Ramrod was nice enough to spilt off into a secondary team to give us the illusion of a full house.     Your reward: Two High Fives and a trip to The Holy Land Experience (Air Fare, Hotel, Food, Admission prices not included in prize; your reward is me telling you about it).     That moment when it's a cake themed round, and you're playing Cake Pandora Radio, and the answer is a Cake song,

A long time ago, at a pub quiz far, far away...
VoldeMartini

Hey guys, Katie here, bringing you the shenanigans that occurred last night at The Lion and Rose.   Did you guys feel like we were at a concert the first round? Because I sure did. I don't know what I did to have the God Reverb, but I can assure you, it won't happen again. Unless I don't feel like you're paying attention. And then not only will I turn the echo to 11, but I will also sing every question. Badly. I will be the Sanjaya of The Geeks Who Drink franchise.   For once, we didn't have to compete with the Spurs for the attention span of the patrons, and although it is bittersweet reasoning, it made me happy. I had a great time with you guys.

Thank you all for being so understanding in us ending a bit early last night. Spurs take precedence, ya know? For the most part you guys are all from here, so you get it. For the visitors, sorry guys. Hope you have fun in Vegas. Best team name for the night definitely goes to Hell's Kitchen Has Double D's. Not only was it a... well endowed team, they also understand the necessity of Netflix binging and playing to my likes. Congrats you guys. Lets move onto the quiz, shall we? Happy Birthday to Jay Leno, and ya'lll showed off your Tonight chops with our first audio round of the night. I am happy to say the most of you knew Backstreet Boys, and

Santa Anna would have Sashayed Away
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Yesterday here in the Grand Ol' State of Texas was the Battle of San Jacinto Day. Little history lesson for ya:The Battle of San Jacinto was fought on April 21, 1836, 45 days after the fall of the Alamo Mission. The Battle of San Jacinto was over in a matter of hours, with only 9 Texian casualties. Santa Anna was captured the next day, apparently dressed as a woman attempting to escape, and held as a POW until he signed the Peace Treaty which started Texas' journey to become an independent country. The story goes that Emily Morgan, AKA The Yellow Rose of Texas, was with Santa Anna, travelling to meet Sam Houston's Army. And by with him, we mean WITH him. Knowing him biblically.

A Tricky Gerbil Named Jim From Outer Space
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Happy Birthday! We had a birthday celebration with the Stock Adders Get Old last night. Thank you for the offer of a cupcake, guys. Well, a cupcake you cut with a knife. Which is not how you eat a cupcake. You shove it all in your mouth at once and then try to continue normal conversation and see who calls you out on it. You know who calls you out on it? Your enemies. Dispose of them at once. We had a pretty close game throughout the evening. We had the Stock Adders Get Old, and Rural Jurors jockeying for first place throughout the evening. Dharma Initiative Dropouts took third place at the end with a wild Joker, pulling them

Gremlins: The Christmas Special
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

So many teams... Swimming in teams and ridiculousocity.I loved it.Before we get to the recap, lets get this squared away. Listen, I know it's Tuesday night at a pub. Spurs play Tuesday nights. This isn't some government conspiracy to interfere with the Black and Silver winning. I promise. But there really is no need to be a complete asshat to those trying to enjoy something other that basketball. Sure, it may not be a traditional sport, but quizzing is a mental challenge... And occasionally a physical one when I feel like being a tool and watch you guys dodge tables and round corners to get the bonus questions in. Speaking of bonus rounds, has no one taken a look

Oh We're Going To A Hukilau...
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Hey guys, Katie here, bringing you the news from The Lion and Rose last night. Small and intimate night, only 4 teams came out, but we had a good time. Well, I did. And since no one walked out, I think it's safe to say that everyone else did Except the one person who asked me to try and talk a little quieter. Alright, here's the deal. You are in public. You are at a bar. During an event. I am not here to cater to you. If your conversation is so dire that you need someone on a mic to be quieter, you should probably choose a different venue to talk about how much Becky sucks for stealing Todd away from you at Casey's party last Friday. I assume this is what all
