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

If I had my way, we would only ask questions about the 2005 Speed Racer film.

Because honestly, what else is there?

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

ZACH EFRON SINGS THE BLUES
Pierce

Quite the competitive match last night. Many perfect rounds. Many well timed jokers. Much fun. Much banter. I don't know who was in the cast of High School Musical. I do know who was in the cast of Scream 4. Parker Posey. We learned a lot last night about Janes, about the TROPIC OF CANCER IS THE TOP ONE, and the Arizona Diamondbacks. We even learned what perpendicular means! Good times. Matt w/ 2 Ts and his Kitten hung in there for the first half of the quiz, but had to bounce thereafter. Virginia Milkshakes and Happy New Beers brought up the rear of the group. Butts Butts Butts Butts Butts had the

No More Quizzes for the Rest of the Year
Pierce

Hah, get it? Sigh. Lovely last quiz of 2016 everyone! A cozy amount of teams - but a really competitive game as there wasn't much separation throughout the match. We learned a lot about chamber pot occurrences, the year 2016 in review, and how little we all know the current pop music in this country. Oh, and the difference between Journey and The Outfield. OTrivia Newtown John and Densa finished just outside the top three. Kitten Mittens ended up in third place, by a point, behind Fab 5. Everyone is Dead were the winners on the evening. Everyone is dead.

Quizmaster Roasting on an Open Fire
Pierce

Ho ho ho, Geeks. Festive and cozy quiz last night. While most of Cville has escaped the dreadful 50 degree weather to spend Christmas in lesser locations, the brave few of us remained to continue the drinking and quizzing at Rapture. There was merriment. And dancing. Festive joy.  DENSA was having a ball going solo, despite getting outpaced by the full teams. Sleigh my Name had multiple perfect rounds but finished just off the podium. "At least we won some free beers" they noted. Indeed. TDs and Beer finished in third place and brought the most new quizzers for the night. Captain Snook and the B Team

Christmas Shoes is the Worst Song
Pierce

Did anyone else get a hot toddy last night? It was fantastic. In related news, it was too damn cold outside, but hot hot hot inside for the quiz. While the 12 days of Christmas might be an annoying song, I think we all agreed it is far from the worst. We learned a lot about things that rhyme with countries, which children's movie stars a reindeer but is narrated by a snowman, and if Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for her Xmen work (no). Good times. Arguments in Abstract Set Theory and Tis the Season (to Drink) brought up the bottom of the results, just behind Wally the One Eyed Wonder Weasel and his Two Balls.

Happy Birthday Sarah
Pierce

Much fun last night. Bonus points if you stuck around for the band. We celebrated a birthday with such questions as "What do you mean by 'Decade?'" The hardest I laughed last night was Shandy's reply to "Are you ready for the second half?" Close race to first, as well. We learned A LOT about Donny Osmond. And the Handmaid's Tale. and what Brunei is.  The wishlist for 2017 celebrity deaths was pretty solid - but cmon Adam Sandler isn't THAT bad, right? In the end, Happy Birthday Sarah! finished last in score and first in fun. Slutskys and The 3rd Moonman were just ahead of them in the standings.
