Ummm, Nobody Tell Bobby
Josh

Okay, so it's just our little secret that I called your regular host, Bobby, an asshole over the microphone, right? I mean, the fact that there was a team named Bobby's Not An Asshole could mean almost anything. And... wait a minute, he's not gonna read this, is he..? Shit. Fact, is, I've never met, Bobby, and, hell, I said a *lot* of things tonight and can't be held accountable for all of them, you know, trying to impress a new crowd and all, and going on basic statistics, I got to imagine he's a lot bigger than me, so, uh, Bobby, that quote was taken way out of context! Anyways... It was fun hosting the Phoenix Landing for the third time... in four years. I'm, sort of a

Mono-X-Treeeeeme!
Bobby

Oh man we talked about echidnas tonight, which brings us peripherally to one of my favorite things ever: the platypus! You see, echidnas and platypuses are the only extant types of monotremes one earth. Monotremes are egg-laying mammals and both these critters (all three, actually, since there’s two types of echidnas) are goddamned weirdos and I love it. Male platypuses have venomous spurs they can jab you with, and platypuses and echidnas mothers both just kind of ooze milk out their sides rather than having good old American nipples. Also they lay EGGS, if you forgot that part. They’re the best and they’re super weird and oh hey did I mention I’m going

It's Been a Long December
Bobby

Well, good riddance 2016. That's all I can say. Debbie Reynolds died during quiz tonight, which is just bananas. 
 Going into 2017 I'm just gonna leave you with this quote, which has been going around Twitter and is just perfect:
 "Be Princess Leia in 2017. Fight on the front lines. Strangle fascists with the chains they would have you wear. Be a motherfuckin’ general.” 
Well done to everyone tonight, and I’ll see you folks in the new year. Love you allBobby

That's Not The Only Thing Around Here That's Fruity and Precocious
Bobby

I feel like half my blog entries lately begin with “oh man it’s good to be back” but oh man, it’s good to be back. I was away in London and Bucharest for work the last few weeks and while it was cool to be away from The Darkest Timeline America for a few weeks it’s also real nice to come back home and see you folks!So listen lets talk about Geek Bowl. Boston has never really had a team at Geek Bowl before and our (spoilers!) winners tonight, the wonderfully named We Missed You Bobby! are going to be heading out there in March! That’s awesome, but I want more. More, I say! Be like a bunch of little Frasier Cranes, making your way across the country

When Is A Team Name Too Soon? The Answer Is Probably Never
Daniel

Phoenix Landing was packed with quizzers who were hoping to escape the Arctic cold while enjoying an adult beverage and show off their smarts Wednesday night. And boy howdy was it one hell of a quiz! The top 7 teams remained within 10 points of each other throughout most of the evening and gave this quizmaster enough reason to start preparing for a tiebreaker round. In the end first place finisher Crazy Psychic Mofos edged out second place finished The Kanye West Wing in the final round. In a respectable third place came Why Couldn’t it Have Been Robin Thicke, whose team name caused a combination of indignation and sitcom

Democracy in Action!
Shillbert

Another week, another successful quiz in the books. This time I ventured to the far off land of Cambridge to host at Phoenix Landing for your normal quizmaster supreme, Bobby. While Bobby travels the world, it was my duty to hold down the fort. And hopefully I lived up to your surely high standards. Phoenix Landing was quite the venue. At most of the bars I’ve hosted at, you sit at a standard table, or even in a corner of the bar. There’s nothing special about where you set up. You’re just sitting and hosting. At Phoenix Landing it was a different situation entirely. I was up on

Turkey Landing
Bobby

Blaow! Back after some delightful turkey consumption. Hope you guys had a great holiday!For only the second time in my life I celebrated Thanksgiving outside of Massachusetts; my fiancee’s relatives in Virginia had us over and it was awesome. The first time was when I was studying abroad in Japan and when my friends and I managed to cook an entire turkey in a toaster oven somehow. Still not sure how we did that. I mean sure, seven of us died of salmonella, but you gotta crack some eggs to make an omelette right? Last night was sweet though; glad to be back in the swing of things. Winners I Want You, I Need You, Oh Baby, Oh Baby nabbed the trophy by a 5 point margin

Packed House and no Turkeys!
Chris

In what many called the greatest Quizzing since the Bridgekeeper over the Bridge of Death, Quizmaster Fallon was told he did a "Reasonable" performance subbing for The Great Bobby.  However, his performance could not compare with Joe Sent Me that won th entire night as a result of the ultra honest Pretty Fly for a Turkey volunteering the information that they were playing with 7 people and thus not allowed to win.  How does a Basted Orphan did a wonderful just with the whole gamete of questions.  From Super Market Sweep to Gilmore Girls, they were staying competitive the entire time.There were several other

Quizmaster Fallon comes from a strong Pedigree of Quizmasters. His father was a quizmaster for decades and taught him the ropes of how not to just ask the question, but to be the question. Well known to give credit for answers that aren't just wrong, but ridiculously wrong if you are in last place, he has become known as "The Quizmaster of the People" he describes it as follows. "I look at myself as Mario Kart's blue shell IRL. It's no fun to know you are going to lose half way in a race, so Mario Kart gives last place a tool that only targets the winners. In my quizzes I'm the tool." - Quizmaster Fallon

Charlie Brooker is a Dark Wizard
Bobby

Yo folks, sweet-ass quiz night last night. Thanks so much for coming out; looks like we’re back to pre-Darkest Timeline numbers as we had eighteen awesome teams head to Phoenix Landing. HooraaayyySo my Recommendation of the Week is Black Mirror, if you guys haven’t already watched it. It’s so goddamned good. If you haven’t seen it, Black Mirror is a Twilight Zone style scifi anthology show. I’ve been watching it for years back when it was BBC thing but now it’s a Netflix thing, and boy oh boy, some of these episodes have become darkly prescient. I won’t go into details but man, give it a shot.Anyway in happier news Cuddle Puddle

Welp
Bobby

This might end up being my shortest blog post ever because frankly, I’m still at a loss as to what to say. But I do want to reiterate that if you’re like me, and you identify as a straight white cisgender male, I’m sure this election is like a punch in the gut - but for your friends who don’t have all those adjectives and all the numerous and varied privileges that accompany them, this is so much scarier. Please watch out for them, love them, hug them, fight for them. They’re going to need it.What Just Happened won last night with Puff Puff Pass and The Robotic Bees Are Coming fighting a high-stakes tiebreaker for second place, with The Robotic Bees

In YOUR endo
Bobby

Back at Phoenix Landing! I was out drivin’ round the country the last two weeks and I saw all the magnificent sights our land has to offer. For example, did you know there’s an actual real-life chain of stores in the midwest called Kum ’n’ Go? And like, people shop there and work there and acknowledge that store’s presence around their moms? Yikes. Speaking of stupid innuendo, we talked about Bethel School District v Fraser in tonight’s Round 4. This case is awesome. Matthew Fraser was a high school senior in Washington State, an d was nominating his friend for Vice President of the student body, and made the following speech:“I

Did somebody say Free Tacos?
Jon Julio Anejo

Bobby is away again and just like a few months ago I was happy to fill in. I was in fact the regular host here years ago but no one seems to remember. I do remember the Phoenix Landing having a great crowd and today was no exception. Major potential TV distractions were around us in the form of the Celtics season opener and Worlds Series game 2, but the quiz action was hot tonight! So hot, we had from what I've experienced, the most amount of disqualifications i've seen in a bit. No Less than three 2 teams rolled over 6 members deep tonight which shuffled the final results

My name is Jonathan and I hail from West Roxbury.  I came over from a competing pub quiz company in the Boston area that was started in this very same neighborhood.  If you can guess who they are, message me with the correct answer to win nothing. You know who else comes from here?  The actress who played Dagny in Atlas Shrugged Part I but not Atlas Shrugged Part II.  I bet you'd love to know more fun facts about West Roxbury.

I grew up in a Suburban town South of Boston which now includes a large retail outpost for a company in Sweden that makes furniture. After high school I spent the next 12 years in Philadelphia where I paid a large amount of money for a college degree which I do not currently use.  Over 40 grand to lose my Boston accent.  I also hacked out a living in my post-college career bumming around the "Swamps of Jersey".  These days I tend bar at a Restaurant in Boston for a living.  And yes Mom and Dad, it's a way of making a living

As far as quizmastering goes, I run the show at Night Shift Brewing every Monday night in Everett, MA at 7:30.  Stop by and say hi!

Raise a glass you crazy psychic mofos
Missus H

So many adjectives to describe the feelings that happened last night, but I can tell you one thing for sure…all of us at quiz had many less (melancholic) emotions than our compatriots watching the debate that happened at some point during the course of the evening. And maybe you didn’t give a fuck about yourself, like the great Kyle Hanson didn’t, and went home and watched the debate anyways despite what your soul was telling you about what was probably happening on television. I don’t know what it was or what it could have been, on account of I was hosting quiz and my only exposure to what was going on was on while I was waiting for the bus to come for 5 minutes…10

Once upon a time there was a girl, whose only goal in life was to leave the great state of Texas. She dreamt and hoped and prayed and wished that she could escape and move to some big fancy city in the north. But dreaming and hoping and praying and wishing don't make things happen. Thank goodness the little girl was smart enough to figure that much out. So the little girl decided that the best course of action was to turn into a super nerd who was awesome at everything and somehow she finagled an escape plan to Boston, which is where she remains to this very day. And she doesn't dream or hope or pray or wish for things to just happen, she simply kicks ass and takes names, but is really, really nice about it and gets shit done. The end.

Bobby

Back at Phoenix Landing for another week and not a moment too soon! Boy, I’ve been getting over this super stealth cold that snuck up on me on Monday night, knocked me on my ass yesterday, threatened me today but no! No I said! I will not have my precious Phoenix Landing torn asunder from me this week! Other weeks? Eh, maybe. But not this one!So yeah my brain is working at maybe 35% capacity but that’s okay because you guys were firing all cylinders. A fine quiz night at the finest of venues. Any quiz where we get to slag off Branson, Missouri (which, as we all know, is like Vegas if it was run by Ned Flanders) is fine by me - particularly since I’ll be in that

Tie Fighters
Bobby

Damn fine to be back at Phoenix Landing - I was out last week (more on that later) and I subbed on Monday at another venue which, while great, ain’t the Phoenix Landing! You guys are the best quizzers in the Boston area and you damn well know that!So yeah last week I left you guys in the very capable hands of Josh because I had to go eat cheese and get tipsy. My fiancee and I went to a cheese and Night Shift beer tasting at Formaggio Kitchen and hooooly moly - it was so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend it. It even made me like those dastardly sour beers I so often hate. So if there’s a beer you’re not too keen on, slam down a few random beers
