I’m Sorry Matt Jackson
Jeremy

...Oooh ooh ooh ooh rest of the woooooords…   Remember that blog you guys were asking me about? It’s this one! This is the blog! You found it! Thanks for letting me butcher the pronunciation of cities around the world for you. That Netflix Carmen Sandiego reboot can’t come soon enough.   I think we all learned a lot last night though. I mean, not me, I just read answers off a sheet. I don’t know shit. But maybe you guys learned something about the best states for lion-free movie viewing. And who won things? Why, The Moops came from above for a third place finish! Zero Fucks Field (get

Now Featuring a Backing Band
Pierce

Lovely quiz last night at Rapture on Ween night in Charlottesville. The Geeks were out in full force on 4/20 to hang with me and my stage full of instruments. The night featured questions on War and Peace, Sex terms and guys named Ed, and states that are apparently still ok with killing other people via second hand smoke! We had fun cursing the existence of the Bangles as well! Scum Boiz missed round one and still finished with a respectable score in 6th place. The Scoobies and Punk Ass Book Jockeys fought valiantly and finished just outside the top 3. In third was I Unistalled Hearthstone,

Meth-o-DOD-ikal
Pierce

Happy Thomas Jefferson's Birthday, everyone! I'm sure quizzes around the country were celebrating the Tom Tom just as we were at Rapture last night. Great quiz! Fun quiz. I read words good sometimes. I read words bad quite frequently. Methodical. Methodical. I think it was the rhythm and meter of the phrasing that tripped me up. I'm just so lyrical in my reading. Anywho! We learned a lot about religious conversion, fast things, garbage, and Weezer last night. We now are all experts in the field of Sesame Street parodies as well! Ladies of the Science and Stop Asking Us What We're Doing After Graduation brought up the

I'm Pretty Sure That's not Eddie Vedder
Pierce

Popular quiz last night at Rapture! Lots of familiar faces, but some new teams as well - which was awesome. A lively and large quiz for sure. Must be the weather. We learned a lot about international capitals (oh - and the capital of Florida, for that matter), professional sports mascots, and Hot Topic. It was a competitive quiz as well! Featuring more ties than I've ever seen before - and a THREE WAY TIE FOR FIRST. We employed a combination of questions and dancing to appease the crowd to settle that one. Cowabunga finished with 47 points behind Squirrel Science Community, Too Funk to Druck, and Punk Ass

In Like a Lion and Out Like Kitten MIttens
Pierce

Excellent quiz last night and most excellent job done by trainee Audrey. I'm pretty sure she's a more impressive QM than I am - certainly at pronouncing places in Colombia. Glad to see so many regulars back this week as well. We learned a lot about Smashmouth - well at least we listened to a fair amount of Smashmouth. We did learn a lot about advanced degrees, typewriters, and the clitoris. It's real! I assure you.  Sad! missed the first round but finished with a respectable 49 points considering it. HeroQuesters, The Scoobies and Drunks Who Geek made up the next group of teams. The April Fools

Chewbacca Sings the Hits
Pierce

Fun times last night at Rapture! Good to be back for sure. We had ourselves a lively quiz particularly when it came to Disney songs and pronouncing words. We learned a lot about world geography, the antebellum population of free black people of the states, and THE BRAIN.  Apparently the kids these days have Space Jam themed parties? That's nuts. I feel old. Epic comeback was well, last night! Punk Ass Book Jockeys tried their darnedest but finished fifth, Mathletes were in fourth place, while Late to the Game couldn't sustain an early lead and ended up in third. Putin on the Ritz fought

Igloo Australia!
Jeremy

I think this was the most sports questions I’ve ever seen in one night of Geeks Who Drink quiz. Luckily as a big fan of the college sportses, I was ready to go. I have UVA v Iggy in the final round, and I’m feeling pretty good about it guys. For reals.      In 10th with a respectable showing for not even knowing trivia was going on, Crochet Tardigrads! In 9th, those loud identify thieves - Do, Me Jeremy! Then we had Britzy 6 Pack, The Omen, and Manbungo the Great rounding out the bottom of the pack.   An Embarrassment

Magnificent
Jesse Grabman

What’s up geeks! So, you may have noticed that the quizmaster didn’t look anything like Jeremy or Pierce. From my CIA Samsung TV intelligence, what I can discern is that both of them were out frolicking through the meadows with some small woodland creatures. However, none of them sang songs with Celine Dion to my knowledge.   Tonight, we learned that about half of men carry HPV. This prompted a lot of worried looks around team tables I’m sure. Don’t be to rash to judge your team members though, because from what I can tell everyone did an awesome job.   Particularly Magnificent were the Magnificent Seven. Although

Chris Martin Sings the Blues
Pierce

Lovely evening we had at Rapture last night. Lovely sound track as well - sorry next time we'll play Rihanna club hits all night long, I promise. We learned a lot about Bhutan, movies involving twins, and messed up Nirvana lyrics. Hollaback girl was my favorite, actually. Many strong scores were had as well! Punk Ass Book Jockeys finished in ninth, just behind Flesh Sessions and Manbungo the Great. Drunks Who Geek won seventh place, behind And in First Place... and Bad Boyz of Belmont. In third, we had All Roads Lead to Moscow, in second The Scoobies,

Russia Touches Lots of Things
Pierce

Fun quiz last night! Thanks for braving the 70 degree evening to make it to Rapture. Really should just listen to Ace of Base the whole time. Maybe next week. Maybe every week. Everyone go buy Ox Cart Man, apparently it's amazing. We learned a lot about Kareem Abdul Jabbar, the mother effin oboe, and how much Sweden sucks. I for one am ready for the inevitable Scandinavian war draft.  Troll Toll and Hearting had an epic battle toward the bottom of the standings, while The Scoobies, The Natural Selection and Not My Trivia finished in the middle of the pack.

Thomas Jefferson did in fact sign the Declaration of Independence
Pierce

That fact came as a surprise to one of our teams - only 3 of whom work for the University of Virginia haha. Fun quiz last night! Dance party at Rapture! With Nirvana and Carly Rae. Just as Kurt Cobain would've wanted. We learned a lot last night - about how awesome UConn Women's Basketball is. Or "Basketball" as we call it sometimes.  We learned about national wilderness locations, Austrian composers, and junk food. Punk Ass Book Jockeys were outnumbered but had THE MOST FUN in last place, behind The Natural Selection and My Heart is Gold but my Vagine is Platinum. Amatuer Hour

You get a bag of condoms! And you get a bag of condoms!
Jeremy

JK. These things are in limited supply. Bags of condoms are only for successful rule breakers. The rest of you will have to fight for Rapture $$$s as god intended.    Despite the sudden and brutal return of winter, we still had a great turn out last night, including a surprising number of mid-game additions! Speaking of, thanks to Deer Dodgers and Participation Trophy for giving it a go! Come back again (maybe 20-40 minutes earlier, if you can)!   In 7th, we had Smoley-Oley, who were diligent in ensuring I pronounced their name correctly (so as to better support their chanting).

Courtney Doesn't Watch Parks & Rec
Pierce

Other than her severely needy Netflix queue, I'd say Courtney was a stupendous outstanding host for the first half last night. Good times at Rapture with some new faces and a team of regulars finally making their spot on the winner's podium (thanks to their tie breaker excellence). We learned a lot about diseases and how scary they are - and about world geography puns. We sang Toto and Lady Gaga. I tried to get invited to the sorority function next door.  Two-fer and What are the Odds? finished at the bottom of the competition, while Punk Ass Book Jockeys and You Can't Play Watersports by

Mott the Hoople, Everyone
Pierce

Moolooloo Station is my new favorite place. Fun and rowdy quiz last night at Rapture. Excellent work done by trainee Courtney. Everyone almost got to sing their favorite Blondie chorus. We learned a lot about which states are the small ones, the brilliance of Twilight's writing, and Janeane Garofolo. There was laughter. There was crying. Someone threw a napkin at me for making fun of Shandy. Standard Thursday night, really. Mystery Inc and What are the Odds brought up the rear of the standings, just behind Average Joes, Alternative Craps, and Here for the Right Reasons. Human Beings,

Not the place for political commentary
Jeremy

I keep seeing comments all over the internet today, of people telling various authors, publications, chatbots, and lawn gnomes that no one cares about their political opinions, and they should just keep quiet. But fuck that. This is MY quiz summary blog, so I’m gonna say it: Ricky Martin? Really, Dubya? Have some taste.   That being said, thanks for spending your last night in America As We Knew it with me! I always relish the opportunity to host for y’all whenever Pierce is too tired to walk all the way up to the microphone. And what a crowd! We had grizzled veteran quizmasters, brand new baby quizmasters, and a whole lot of people

Those Pee Jokes Really Slayed
Pierce

Aint no party like a GWD pee joke party. Good times last night at Rapture. A competitive quiz as well. Folks were crushing the audio and visual rounds especially. We learned a lot about Dick Trickle, a type of rock called "Tuff," and how to correctly read the word "Mauna." Golden Pair finished at the back of the quiz, while Quizzards of Oz and Zsa Zsa Lives finished in 6th and 5th respectively. In fourth place we had Flanelope Cruz in a heartbreaking 1 point loss of 3rd - who went to Butts Butts Butts/Ashley's Team. Drunks Who Geek scored 2nd place by a point
