Live Every Week Like It's Shark Week
JaredDuncan

Did The Rural Jurors inspire me to consider making this whole blog just 30 Rock jokes? They sure did, but then I realized it might be a little out of context and lazy. But I'm still going to start every quiz with, "Listen up, Fives. A Ten is speaking."     On a different note, THIRTEEN DAMN TEAMS! I know that's small potatoes for some venues, but for us, it's slightly bigger potatoes. And at the top of that pile of potatoes was #WhitePeopleWithOneTokenBlackDude. And, yes, it did kill me to read a hashtag name every time I announced scores. Below that, there was Amelia Bedelia Throws A Baby Shower,

Not so long ago, I was on a team playing quiz and we ruled the school. My personal areas of expertise were both audio rounds, anything involving movies, and American history. One night, I was the only guy in the bar who knew the name of the current prime minister of England.

We placed first almost every week. So often that it became stale and I needed a new challenge. So instead of angering fellow geeks by besting them, I decided I would anger them by doing the asking. So I became a quizmaster and I've been pissing them off ever since.

All The Women Who Quiz-Dependant
JaredDuncan

Another night, another tie, another dance off. And by “another,” I mean maybe the best one you’ve ever seen. The representative from Donald Trump’s Day Workers was gyrating like a Sherwin-Williams paint shaker and even incorporated her opponent from I Believe In Unicorns & 50 Cent Getting Back On His Feet. In the end, those moves led her team to the grand prize, AKA…..Ozzie’s Bucks. I’m making it happen. #ozziesbucks   On top of that, the other highlight of the night was when one team referred to Stevie Nicks’ “Edge of Seventeen” as “The One-Winged Dove”. Thank

Don't Stop Quizzin'
JaredDuncan

Well, it was a damn fine night of quiz if I do say so my damn self. I’d Rather Be At San Diego Comic Con managed to squeeze out a first place victory by one point, overtaking Divine Interception, who was having an inter-team squabble about having to write down Billy Joel when the answer was “clearly Elton John!”     Beyond that, Glory Glory Hole-lellujah came in third in the quiz, but first in team name creativity. Not to be out-done, though, we had strong showings from The Geico Plane Gives Off Chemtrails (we’ve all suspected it), It’s A Von Trapp!,

Hairy Palmer and the Cursed Quiz
JaredDuncan

Holy. Fucking. Shit. What a night. I had an innumerable amount of coworkers from Dolce Vita Footwear joining in on the fun tonight. I’ll go ahead and let their clever team name inform you of where they ended up. All other teams did an amazing job. And naturally, 50 States of Gay takes home the best team name trophy. Sure, we’ve had the privilege in Washington for three years, but now it’s a nation-wide undeniable right, as it should be.     Speaking of Washington, second place trophy for best team name goes to those guys talking about Marshawn Lynch’s doorbell. I’ve never been to Mr. Lynch’s house, but I’m

Everybody Wants to Quiz the World
JaredDuncan

So, the song "Summertime" was performed by a young man whose real name is Will Smith and who later went by that name in his rap career. However, the song is credited to performers DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince. Was I a dick for not accepting Will Smith as an answer on that song? Absolutely. Is them the brakes? Abso-fuckin-lutely.     Despite that, we have a nice little night of quiz. Prolapse By Proxy and Round Bottoms battled it out all night for third place, with RBs taking that spot. But, they also had seven on their team, which means they had to relinquish their gift certificate

Don't Quiz on the Electric Fence
JaredDuncan

Hey, remember that show "Bands Reunited" on VH1? Only it was with a bunch of groups that no one cared about? Well, last night was sort of like that, only with quizzers. Quizzers that are slightly more important than A Flock of Seagulls.   The lovely and wonderful Hail To The Trump made their fateful return, holding their own against Two Californians Walk Into A Seattle Bar (Go Giants), who hail from Davis, my old stomping grounds.    However, neither one was any match for the cleverly named Don't Quiz On The Electric Fence and the rudely named Get The Fuck Outta Here

Quiz From a Rose
JaredDuncan

The More We Know: One team was not aware that the G-spot and clitoris were separate things. So for others, consider this a PSA. Scientologists sign billion-year contracts. Sounds totally reasonable. NHL's westernmost franchise is the Canucks. Their easternmost is the Canadiens. Not too creative with those names. Best Worst Answers: One team put down "The D" for vitamin D. And yes, I totally took "The D." "Who's Harry Crumb?" was definitely not the right answer, but you get props for the reference. And it was still a better guess than saying Steve Martin was

What Doesn't Kill You Make You Quizzer
JaredDuncan

Quite a round of quiz this week. The arena was a little crowded when we started, but once we did, outlier teams pounced on open tables. This included an older couple who were a lot of fun. I can’t remember the last time I cursed so much in front of senior citizens.   And my favorite part of the night? Me scrambling around to turn off the three TVs playing The Stanley Cup just before asking which two teams were playing. And then noticing the nine other TVs playing it at the bar.   I’m gonna go clean the vomit off my shoes. Have a nice week.

Dexy's Midnight Quizzers
JaredDuncan

The sun was out in full effect today, friends. Were the guns out? Not yet. I still need a few more laundry/gym sessions before that happens. What’s that you say? 2009 references are faux pas? Well, listen, I just turned 30. I’m only now catching up. Cut me some slack. Or talk to the hand. People still say that, right? The More We Know: -There’s a special rig you can buy to attach your tablet to your Fleshlight. Don’t act like you didn’t know that. -Surprisingly, Brown College doesn’t have a color-based mascot. Theirs is actually Bruno the Bear. More like Brun-Yes, amiright?!  …This is really hard, okay? -You

Quizzers With Attitude
JaredDuncan

It’s fitting that we had round tonight on David Letterman’s final show, as I’ve always compared myself to him in my quizmaster duties. The subtle disdain for the guests, the jokes that often don’t land, sleeping with my interns…I could go on and on. But instead why don’t we move on to tonight’s top ten: The More We Know: Pierre, the state capital of South Dakota, is actually pronounced with just one syllable. Jury’s still out on Montpellier. Best Worst Answers: So many teams put down “Beastie Boys”

When I Get That Feeling, I Need Quizzical Healing
JaredDuncan

I’m going to paint an unflattering picture here, so bear with me. Quizzers are like earthworms. The moment the rain starts up, they come up out of the filth and dirt to bathe themselves in useless questions. I guess that’s where the similarities end, really…Oh my God. Can you imagine how embarrassed I would be if actual earthworms came in to play one night? I’m bookmarking this just in case. The More We Know: Jon Hamm has yet to win an Emmy. There’s only one week left, but I fully expect that to change in 2016. “I Know Who Killed Me” is actually Linsday

Hey, T-Shirt! Leave That Quiz Alone!
Jared

So, we at Geeks Who Drink have a hard-and-fast rule against using the T-word. In order to be taken seriously, we must use the term “pub quiz” at each turn. Yet, this doesn’t stop people from calling me “T-word Dad” or “T-word Guy” every week. I respond to it out of kindness and hospitality. But please, if you see me on the street or on the stage at Ozzie’s, call me “Quizmaster.” Or for my German fans, “Quizmeister.” Danke. The More We Know: Many knew that Blackbeard captained the Queen Anne’s Revenge, but few know that the Lower Queen Anne’s Revenge is captained by Redbeard.

Hey Guys!

My name is Jared. My wife, Megan, and I moved from the Mid-West to Houston in 2008. 

Like so many who frequent there, we felt right at home at Little Woodrows in Rice Village and quickly became regulars. And that's when we first discovered Pub Quiz. The first night that we played, I decided I'd love to do that. So, I auditioned and here we are.

My favorite part of pub quiz is meeting all the players, especially welcoming new teams that join us each week.  So, if you're new to Pub Quiz, or if I haven't met you yet, come on up and introduce yourself the next time you play.   

Cheers

Earth Day Sex, Earth Day Sex
Jared

Well, Spring is finally here, which means that the sun is still out well into round number six. It’s a weird feeling…almost like I should be knocking back a mimosa instead of my usual five Jägerbombs. Maybe when the Washington orange shortage ends. The More We Know: Ernest Hemingway was the original crazy cat lady. The hero of “Big Hero 6” is named Hiro. Very confusing. “The Monster Mash” was performed by Bobby Pickett. Believe me, it will come up. Best Worst Answers: When asking what planet was the same size as Earth, I don’t know if one

I Always Feel Like...SOMEBODY'S QUIIIIZING ME!
Jared

Showing up to Ozzie’s at 5:45, I felt like I stepped through a wormhole back to Kansas. Camo baseball caps to the left of me, sleeveless John Deere tees to the right. Turns out that country music sensation Eric Church was playing at Key Arena, a mere three blocks away. Good times and good people, though. I even got a high five! The More We Know: Sidney Poitier won an Oscar, but not for directing “Ghost Dad”. Phil Collins’ “You’ll Be In My Heart” beat out Aimee Mann’s “Save Me” for Best Original Song Oscar in 2000, which, I shouldn’t have to tell you, is a damn crime. Toasted

Absolutely No Treble
Jared

We’ve finally reached that time of year when the sun shines into the bar during the first half of quiz. Feels weird. But, at the same time, I can actually read what I’m saying. And you can probably read what you’re writing. You can also finally differentiate if that’s Marlon Brando or Annette Benning in the visual round.   Then the sun sets, and the full moon rises. Well, technically it wasn’t a full moon tonight, but how else could you explain the sounds heard during karaoke?   So, quiz. We had seven teams, all with interesting names (who is Kevin anyway?). I’d like to say the battle was heated, but after tallying
