You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy
Major Tom

Yesterday was May the Fourth. In the last few years, Star Wars fans have made May 4th an unofficial holiday, as in "May the Fourth be with you." I have to say, it was pretty disaapointing that no one but me even wore a Star Wars shirt last night. I mean, it is GEEKS Who Drink, right? Not even substitute scorekeeper Mitch wore a Star Wars shirt last night. I have a history with May the Fourth. Five years ago, all my friends were posting Star Wars jokes, and so did I. I wrote, "7th grade social studies. You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy." Nowhere on my page did it say the name of the school or even the district I worked at. I mentioned no names, not even a specific

I've gotten a couple of...shall we say...constructive criticisms...of late. As everyone's favorite Quizmaster, I will of course address them and try to make everybody happy. First of all, I've heard from a few people that they are upset about the Ginja Ninjas winning all the time. People have told me that they feel like they can't possibly win anything at Quiz because the Ninjas are unbeatable, and they even win the lion's share of the free beer bonus question coupons. We Quizmasters have Facebook groups where we discuss issues that come up, and I'll tell you that many, many Quizmasters from all over the country have a dominant team like this. The solution that keeps coming up is offering

A "holiday" Quiz.
Major Tom

So, last night was 4/20. You know what that means. It's a pretty big day. That's right. It's Hitler's birthday. On 4/20, one of history's biggest monsters was born, and the path of history was changed forever by him. Oh, that wasn't what you thought I was going to say? OK, I know. 4/20 is meaningful for another reason. 4/20 is the anniversary of the Columbine High School massacre. Wait, that's not what you were thinking either? Fine, 4/20 is also something, something, weed. The Dub is college bar, so I know there's a bunch of you who are pot smokers. Pot smokers are all about the number 420. At 4:20 every day, they smoke out. On 4/20 every year, it's like a giant holiday. What do they do?

An ode to the answer sheet as filth sponge.
Major Tom

The Dub is the home of record breakers. As you know, last week at the Dub, the Ginja Ninjas earned the first perfect score that I've ever seen reported in five years of playing and hosting Quiz. Well, not to be outdone, you guys made a herculean effort as a club to break another record last night. In all my years of being a Quizmaster at two of my own clubs and substituting at several others, I have never experienced nearly as much food, drink, and condiments stuck to, smeared on, and soaked into a pile of answer sheets. It was a whole new level of disgusting. I save all the answer sheets until the next day, so that I can include anything interesting when I write my Blog. When I pulled the

Do you believe in miracles?!?
Major Tom

You are all familiar, I'm quite sure, with the team known as The Ginja Ninjas. They use that name infrequently these days, but it's the name we all know them by. They have different members of the team on different weeks, but the usual suspects include Jeff the Chemist, the Dunn Brothers, Swede, Tabby, and Tucker Dunn's wife Pilar. They have pretty consistently kicked everyone's ass for the almost four years that I have hosted at the Dub. They're the team to beat, and the team you love to hate. They're actually pretty cool people, and if you get to know them, you'll see that's true. However, they are our venue's Darth Vader. our Voldemort. Our Negan, our Borg, our Dracula, our Ivan Drago.

A holiday near-miss.
Major Tom

I feel like I got gypped by having Quiz on March 30th. My other club is tonight, March 31st. Also lame. See, had one of my Quizzes been just a day or two later, I could have used April Fool's Day to inspire my Blog. I could have completely screwed with you guys last night, asking fake questions, giving out invalid drink coupons, reading standings in the wrong order, buying you guys afwul drinks made with bum wine (yes, the Dub has bum wine), announcing that the Dub was cancelling Quiz, etc. I could have announced that Dini was in need of an appendix transplant and asked for donations. I could have released hundreds of rats in the Dub. I could have organized a Trump rally at the Dub to begin

No more rhymes! I mean it! Anybody want a peanut?
Major Tom

I'm on Spring Break this week. I really needed Spring Break this time around. My students are so ridiculously terrible this year, words can't describe them. Luckily, I've been offered a job in high school next year, but I still have to deal with my current middle school situation for another two months and change. Being on Spring Break, I figured I would hang out after Quiz. Maybe get some beers and maybe sing some karaoke with the gang. We used to do that pretty regularly, even on Wednesdays when I had to work the next day. I showed up ready for action, and no one wanted to hang out. Spectacular. So, Dini and I just stayed at the Dub after you all left last night and downed a few more beers.

Both of my Quiz venues happen to be pubs. They are the kinds of places where people show up in droves for St. Patrick's Day. Now, my Thursday night gig is at an East side pub that is more...shall we say...mature? You wouldn't expect a whole lot of vomiting or fighting at my Thursday gig, even on St. Patrick's Day. Even so, they decided that it would be too crowded with people who are only out to drink and party to effectively run a Quiz. I got cancelled for tonight. What really makes me feel good is seeing that a whole lot of Quizzers from my Thursday gig showed up last night at the Dub. They could have gone to a different Thursday Quiz venue, or a different East side venue, but they come

I'm graduating!
Major Tom

I have been teaching middle school for thirteen years now. I suppose it's an important job. Someone has to do it. You can't just lock kids away during those years and dig them back up for high school. There have been some really good times doing this job, and some really great kids have gone through my class over the years. I still keep in touch with some of them. I've worked with some cool teachers, too. But I'll be honest. Thirteen years is enough. Frankly, at this point, I am still showing up because I have to in order to pay the bills. If I could make a living as a Quizmaster, or a Heavy Metal Television VJ, or playing in Troy's Bucket, I would be doing that exclusively. So, after having

Up The Irons!
Major Tom

If you know me at all, you know I'm a big music fan. I'm a VJ on Heavy Metal Television. (www.heavymetaltelevision.com) I have a music review webpage. (www.facebook.com/theduellists) It's been a driving force in my life since I was born. What you might not know is that Iron Maiden has pretty much always been my favorite band. You might remember a couple years ago when Mitch got Trooper Ale at the Dub. Trooper is Iron Maiden's beer, brewed in England, and fairly difficult to get in America. We served Trooper, gave out pints to Quizzers wearing Iron Maiden shirts,

Jeb Bush, the musical fruit...
Major Tom

There have been some really great Quizzes over the years that I've been a Quizmaster. But last night, one round in particular may have been my favorite round of all time. Round 3 was a 50/50 round, which is pretty typical. A lot of times, the 50/50 rounds are pretty funny. This one, was hilarious. Jeb Bush, or a can of Bush's Baked Beans? They have very similar personalities, so it was somewhat difficult. I appreciated the teams who used the proper spelling, which of course is "JEB!". The fact that you guys did terribly at this round makes me laugh, since I guess that means that Jeb Bush is pretty much indistinguishable from a can of beans. As if the round wasn't good enough, the last question

Major Tom

If you know me at all, then you know that I am a huge music fan. Most likely not the music you listen to, since I don't listen to rap or pop. I like classic rock, punk, and most of all, metal. So last night, when I looked at the music round, and I didn't know any of the songs, I figured you guys would be in hog heaven. I was right, the scores on the music round were huge. People were dancing and singing along to the eight second clips. So, hey, I'm glad you all enjoyed that one. Speaking of my music fandom, I've had several bands that are all-time favorites of mine announce tours without a date in Arizona. The first one was Black Sabbath's farewell tour.

Meat and Quiz are Murder
Major Tom

Today is Manager Mitch's birthday. Did you wish him a happy birthday last night at Quiz? If you didn't, you made him sad. This is the sort of thing that drives a man to listen to Morrissey. Mitch is a sad man. So sad, in fact, that not only does he listen to Morrissey, but he has Morrissey tattoos, and he flies all over the country to see Morrissey play in concert. Is there anything else quite that sad? You would probably say that there is not. You would be wrong. I think we can all agree that heavy metal is the greatest music in the world, yeah? Well, Mitch feels inadequate sometimes because so many of you forget to do things like wish him a happy birthday. So, to compensate, he listens to

Major Tom

It always concerns me when we have a huge crowd at the Dub, with people standing at the bar and a ton of noise. I always assume that it's a giant crowd of bros who are there to get drunk and make noise, and that Quiz will be almost impossible. I always begin with the rules and procedures of the Quiz, and sure enough, the crowd never quiets down for that. Sure enough, I think, this is going to be tough. But then, as soon as I start with Round One, it gets nearly silent and everyone listens. It turns out that everyone in the club is there for Quiz, and Quiz is fun and easy. I fall for it every time.

Congratulations to Christa McAuliffe on getting out of the teaching profession.
Major Tom

Today was the anniversary of the space shuttle Challenger exploding a little over a minute after it launched. At the time, the entire nation was still captivated by the space shuttle program. People stopped what they were doing to watch every launch. It was exciting to watch it blast off and to watch it land a few days later. People knew who the astronauts were, and often they knew the details of the missions. It hadn't gotten to be old hat yet. So, since the shuttle was big news, and had ben problem-free, NASA started bringing people along who really had no business being astronauts. For the doomed Challenger flight, they brought along Christa McAuliffe, a teacher. Schools all over the country

Major Tom

As most of you know, my day job is as a 7th grade social studies teacher. During the school day, any number of disasters can strike, and they often do. In those cases, I have to quickly improvise a solution and try to keep order and keep things running. Thinking on your feet is a necessary part of the job, or else everything can completely go to hell at any moment. The same thing can be true for my job as a Quizmaster. I have an extra soundboard in my car, I have extra batteries for my microphone with me at all times. I have contingency plans for all kinds of possible catastrophes. So last night, one of my most trusted companions failed on me. My wireless microphone stopped working. This microphone
