A Quiz well fought
Major Tom

I'm not going to lie to you. While I would never do anything to influence the outcome of the Quiz, I root against the Ginja Ninjas every week. Let's face it, they need to be humbled a bit. Don't get me wrong, they are my friends, but nothing would make me happier than seeing them lose. Well, that's not exactly true. There are several things that would make me happier. Most involving gigantic sums of money being given to me, or filthy sex stuff. But I digress. I think we all agree that some team needs to snatch victory from the redheaded jaws of the Ninjas and their resident Chemist. I would be happy to see anyone do the job, but I would especially like to see it done by one of my teams that

Kickballers everywhere!
Major Tom

It seems like there is a lot of action around campus this summer. I don't remember ever having such huge crowds at the Dub on Quiz night in previous summers. I'm really happy to see it. The more the merrier. Here's the thing, though. It's gotten really hot, and I get that everyone is ordering a ton of water, but just make sure you guys keep drinking beer and eating food as well. Not only are beer and bar food two of the basic food groups, but we need to make sure we keep the Dub in business. Just ordering water isn't going to pay the bills, including the bill for Quiz.Besides, you don't really want to be sober when you hear me read out your terrible scores, do you? Have you guys noticed

Quiz therapy.
Major Tom

Quiz is like therapy. Bad stuff happens, yet being among my Quizzers makes me happy regardless. Yesterday was a perfect example. I got the news that my aunt had been hit in a crosswalk in Phoenix by a hit and run driver. She was in the hospital, unconscious, and not expected to survive. I had two choices. I could sit around the house and wait for news, or I could go to Quiz and try to escape for a few hours. Obviously, I chose Quiz therapy. For a couple of hours, you guys helped me to forget what was going on in my family and allowed me to feel much better for a bit. The show must go on. So, a few things. First of all, get out and enjoy yourself. Second, spend time with the people who are

This is how civil wars get started.
Major Tom

In the world of Pub Quiz, there is nothing more polarizing than sports. There are certain Quizzers and certain teams that never stop talking about how there needs to be more sports in the Quiz. The reason they don't win is obviously because there aren't enough sports questions. The lack of sports rounds is the only thing holding them back from glory. Then there are the other Quizzers who hate it when we have any sports questions. It's GEEKS who Drink! Not Sports Bros who Drink! In fact, why aren't there more science questions? If we wanted sports rounds, we could go find a bar that has one of those crappy trivia companies! I'll be honest, I sympathize with both sides. I do think that there

Smells like daddy issues.
Major Tom

Last night was a pleasant surprise. School is out, but yet the place was still packed solid with Quizzers. Something was a little strange though. Scorekeeper Dini and I were just about the only people in the house who weren't in kickball t-shirts. Apparently, we've missed the boat on some new cult that's arrived in town. A cult based on a game from middle school P.E. If it sounds like I'm making fun of it, I might be, a little bit. On the other hand, that's a sport I could actually do without looking like too much of a fool. This might be something I have to look into. I have this weird group of friends who, long story short, met on the Internet years ago. This week marks 5 years since

Not all Sanchezes are dirty.
Major Tom

Occasionally, our Quizzes get a little risque.  A little off-color, if you will.  I get it.  I have no problem with it.  My sense of humor is pretty much open to anything.  There isn't much that can shock me or gross me out.  I feel like the type of people who come to Quiz are fairly similar, and that pretty much anything goes.  That being said, last night I contacted the company and asked them to send me a replacement question.  The last question on the "Dirty" round was about a (hopefully) fictional sex act known as the "Dirty Sanchez".  If you don't know what that is, I'm not going to tell you.  Go check out Urban Dictionary if you're curious.

Time to move to Canada.
Major Tom

Let me tell you a little bit about why kids suck.  Not all kids.  Just like 90% of them, at least where I work.  I have six days left with these kids.  I am trying to catch up on grades, and pretty much all of them are are failing.  A disturbing amount of them actually have zero points in my class.  ZERO.  Not even a feeble attempt at one assignment.  Give them a list of what they need to make up, and they either don't bother, or copy off someone else so badly that none of their answers make any sense, and they don't even know that they make no sense.  So today, after 4 billion other state and federally madated tests they have all taken, the kids

I'll never grow up!
Major Tom

This week has been absolutely ridiculous.  At some point as an adult, I think you're supposed to grow up and realize that you aren't supposed to stay out all night every night.  You're supposed to think about the fact that you have to be up in the morning for your job.  Yeah, screw that.  This week, I have not one, but two concerts in Phoenix to go to.  One of those shows is on Thursday, so that means two things.  First, it means that I have to do my Wednesday Blog Wednesday night when I get home from the Dub.  Second, it means that I can't be the Quizmaster on Thursday night at my other venue.  Not wanting to give up a paycheck, I called Quizmaster

You know what's awesome?  Enthusiasm and excitement, that's what's awesome!  Last night, we had a group of three girls walk into the Dub randomly.  They discovered that we do Quiz on Wednesdays, so they dived right in.  I don't think I've ever seen a team so excited to play Quiz in my life.  I'm pretty sure we got ourselves a new regular team.  Watch out everyone, because Taylor, April, and Kate might just be the new team to beat.  Well, they came in last this week, but with their attitudes, they have nowhere to go but up!  My new favorite team.Speaking of Kate, you may have noticed the old man hitting on her at the bar last night.  Now,

Major Tom

There was some serious competition last night at the Dub!  First, the Ginjas scored a 92 of a possible 96, which is definitely in contention for best nationwide.  Absolutely ridiculous.  Then we had a tie for second place between two teams who don't usually place at all.  Very cool.  We decided to settle second place by a joke-off.  Mike came up and gave us a disgusting joke that was passable at best, but the other team didn't even send anyone up to tell a joke.  Just sad.  Sans Eboni Pants Party walked off with second place just that easily.  Then, of course, we had two of the five bonus beers go to tiebreakers.  one of those tiebreakers was

April Fool's Day should be a federal holiday.

I used to really enjoy April Fool's Day.  If you have the right group of friends, you can really have a good time with it.  One year at the school I used to teach at, the principal and I conspired to convince the other teachers that I had quit at the spur of the moment and moved back to Phoenix.  I had permission to show up late, and the principal forwarded my email of resignation to my friends and asked them if knew what was up with me and if they knew anything about it.  They freaked out at first, but then started to realize that it was an April Fool' joke, and the jig was up.  They quickly came up with a counter-prank.  They removed all of my stuff from my

Set phasers for fun! (I know, that was terrible.)
Major Tom

I've always been a huge fan of Star Trek.  My mom got me hooked on the original series, and we would watch the reruns together when I got home from school.  We saw them so often that we would make a game out of trying to name the episode before the other could name it.  It got to the point where we would both yell out the episode as soon as we saaw the color of the planet the Enterprise was orbiting in the first few seconds of the episode.  My dad, never a fan of science fiction, thought we were crazy.  My nerdy friends and I played the Star Trek role playing game in middle school, and when we read that they were planning a new Star Trek series, we went nuts.

Party like it's Wednesday!
Major Tom

One of my regular Quizzers celebrated her birthday at Quiz last night.  First of all, let me just say that I fully support that decision.  What possible better way is there to celebrate one's birthday than getting together with friends over booze and trivia?  Anyway, after Quiz was over, her friend called me over and asked me for my opinion.  Should they party like it was Wednesday, or should they party like it was Jenn's birthday?  Jenn tried to wink at me to clue me in that I was supposed to say, hey, it's Wednesday.  You should probably go home and get some sleep.  Her winking at me was hilarious, because she looked like she was having a stroke.

Spring Break! Meh...
Major Tom

Spring Break has always been sort of a mixed bag for me.  Sure, it's always great to not have to go to work for a week, and it was great to not have to go to school for a week when I was in school.  But, while TV and movies show all the amazing things others do on their Spring Break, I was always just getting stuff done around the house, or going to Phoenix to hang around with my family.  A few years ago, I decided that I had to go do something awesome for Spring Break.  My principal at the school I was working at hired a bunch of young teachers all at once, and we became fast friends.  A few of us were talking, and realized that none of us had ever done anything awesome
