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.

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

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

I'm the Jack Bauer of Blogs.
Major Tom

The following events occur on Wednesday between 10:00 and 11:00 PM.As you probably know by now, I am a teacher.  One thing I absolutely hate is being at school on the day grades are due after everyone else has finished their grades.  I'm still sitting there finishing while everyone else has already gone home.  Well, here I am still sitting at the Auld Dubliner writing this Blog right now.  All the Quizzers have gone home, but here I sit doing this.  Why?  Why am I not at home doing this?  Because Cox Communications sux cox.  For the eleventy billionth time, the cable, and therefore the Internet, is out at my house.  I could do the Blog tomorrow

Attitude is everything!
Major Tom

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,

Fierce competition!
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

Delicious hate mail!
Major Tom

Last night was a had a good news-bad news kind of theme going.  As far as the Quiz goes, here are some of the good new/bad news situations...  Good news:  You guys that have been clamoring for a sports round, we have an entire sports round tonight!  Bad news:  It's all about guys who played when your grandparents were kids.  Good news:  We have three 16-point rounds tonight!  You can get a huge score tonight!  Bad news:  The other 16-point round is the afore-mentioned sports round.  Another good news/bad news situation last night involved a package delivered to the Dub for a certain team.  The bad news  was that the Ginja Ninjas

April Fool's Day should be a federal holiday.
Major Tom

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
