Back In The Saddle
Control Freakonomics

Before I dive into any other topic, I want to make sure to take the time to thank Kelly for her work and dedication over the past year.  Keeping score is quite a bit more than just marking up answer sheets and typing some numbers into Excel.  While hosting quiz, there are a ton of different things going on in a quizmaster's mind even before the idea of trying to be charming and entertaining enter the equation.  Having a scorekeeper that can take a lot of that off of your shoulders so that you can focus on the quiz itself is invaluable and has as large an impact on the end result as anything else involved.  I know that Andrea

Mike was a faithful quizzer for almost three years who finally fell victim to the siren call of becoming a quizmaster.  Translation: Getting paid to eat, drink, and joke at the expense of others was simply too much to resist.  Also, talking about himself in the third person is a major turn-on.

At first glance Mike probably qualify as more drink than geek, but he'll put his nerd street cred up against anyone brave enough to accept the challenge.  We're talking played World of Warcraft at a "WORLD CLASS" level here, people.  

There is, however, a soft spot reserved in his heart for good beer, bad puns, and obscure references so if you have any one of these to spare, come down to Dry Dock and get your quiz on!

Never Say Goodbye, Just Say Ciao
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hello my lovely Geeks of Dry Dock! I have missed you and our Wednesday night show. It is nice to be back home from Washington. Seattle was fun and it is cool to do some travel for the day job. Besides quiz I missed sunshine, average sized parking spots, and the array of product I keep in my bathroom. Travel tubes get lame after a week or so. Thanks to Kelly, Johnny, Bob, Edge and Mike for helping to hold down quiz. We have an amazing, diverse, and talented group of Quiz Masters here in Colorado. As I said last night, Mike Rucki is coming back full time as your Dry Dock Quiz Master. We have discussed and both think it is for the best. I am happy he is coming out of

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Andrea

Don't Call It a Comeback, I Was Just Gone a Year
Control Freakonomics

Well, that was pretty fun, right? After popping my head in at the end of January to see what life was like on the scorer's side of the table, I thought I might show up again and see if I remembered how to host a pub quiz.  While I think we had a successful night overall, the rust was definitely present and gives me something to work on for the next time.  If there is a next time, that is, as I haven't really decided yet.  It really depends on Andrea and her willingness to subject you all to my abusive patterns.  I like to think that she wants to dangle me as a punishment if you ever get too out of line, like when you were a kid and your mom was done putting

Love Is Only A Feeling
Cousin Chet

Well, hello again. Yes once again you get me instead of Andrea and this time you also got Bob instead of Kelly. Pure madness, I know. But what fun we have when we have this little time together. Such magic. Such wonder. Such Bob. You guys remember the band The Darkness, right? They had one brief shining moment in 2003 and then vanished from this Earth, never to be seen again. Just kidding. They put out a follow up album to Permission To Land that just wasn’t very good and then vanished. Which kinda sucks, because the first album was so good. I know that most people stopped after “I Believe In A Thing Called Love” but there are so many great, tongue in cheek songs

I Don't Care If That's What They Called Him On Spongebob
Cousin Chet

Okay, I promised I wouldn’t bore you last night with why I didn’t like that we accepted Nosferatu for Count Orlok, that I’d say it for today. You see, the Count’s name is not Nosferatu. And no, this isn’t one of those “It’s Frankenstein’s Monster” thing. Well, actually, it kinda is. Basically, the character is never called that in the film. And Nosferatu is an old Romanian word that had existed centuries before of the film was made (the film itself was an unlicensed adaptation of Dracula that Bram Stoker’s widow wouldn’t sign off on, but that’s a story for another day). The word translates to somewhere between unclean

By far my favorite answer of the night. Best team name had to go to our winners, Return of the Mack. Your dance moves and smarts are on par. We had some hard questions tonight! Roman Lupercalia, the Grammys, and Canada. Some of you struggled and some of rose to the top. Damn It Spock, you stayed average. Not the best, not the works and by Jen’s birthday in July you will have enough $5 gift cards to intoxicate a small army! I hope you all enjoyed Valentines with a bit of love in your lives. Pets, friend, family, lovers, self-love. Do your thing and feel good about it. Love in February breaks up so much of the monotony of this grey month! Thanks

And Here Come The Pretzels!
Cousin Chet

David Mamet is one of the greatest modern playwrights we have. I think. I haven’t been reading as many modern  plays these days. What with all the great things on television, who can find the time. But I did once read Buffalo Nickel and I saw Glengarry Glen Ross. That’s the one where Alec Baldwin yells at Jack Lemon. And that’s all anyone remembers from it. But it was really good. Mamet’s genius is that he takes the stories of ordinary Americans, depicts the tragedy that is their everyday life and then fills it up with lots of swears. That’s what sets him apart. He’s never found a sentence he couldn’t fit the word fuck into. So, that Dali

Rooting for Lady Gaga and Avocados
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hello my Dry Dock Geeks! It is so nice to see your lovely faces and to quiz with you this evening. Tonight, we had some sports ball knowledge in quiz. I know some of you were real excited. I also, know many of us are excited for the Super Bowl because Lady Gaga is performing and we hope Atlanta can beat those cheating Pats. Also, with President Trump’s promise of the wall, this might be one of the last games where avocados can take center stage at the snacks table. Avocados are already in high demand and short supply. Us Millennials really love them and eat them at every opportunity. This is one Millennial trait that is strong in my friends and I. Seriously, I eat avocado like

Kelly the Bearcat

Hello my lovely Dry Dock quizzers! It’s very rare that I get to talk to you as much as I did last night, and…well, I’ve had my fill. I’m going back to my quiet little corner of keeping score. Just kidding (mostly). You all know I love you, if only in a weird “I like picking on all of you when you’re drunk” kinda way. That’s love, right? Related, I promise to stop locking Andrea in closets. At least I gave her pillows and blankets this time! See, I’m learning! It was also kinda nice having Rucki back for the night. His height definitely gives him an advantage during bonus questions that I will sadly never have. Unless I

The Walking Dead Sucks. There, I Said It.
Cousin Chet

Yes, it is true. The Walking Dead have never won a Best Drama Series Emmy. And the reason why is because it’s not a very good show. Sorry, to break the news to you like that, but it’s true. It’s just not very good. Now we could argue that there is a bias against genre work at the Emmys. But then you have to remember that Game of Thrones has won the award. Along with a slew of acting awards. Even American Horror Story regularly is nominated in the Best Anthology Series category. And that’s not exactly the best thing on television. I think that should tell you just how bad Walking Dead is. AHS has been nominated for more Emmys. And that’s a show that people watch

What if Sam Jackson is at the End?
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Growing up my brother and I loved to watch the full credits for movies. I think it is cool people have jobs like “Transportation Captain”, “Gaffer”, “Best Boy” and my brother has hoped for years that Sam Jackson would be at the end of every movie. EVERY MOVIE. Action Movies, superhero movies sure. But, every movie like Bridget Jones’s Diary and March of the Penguins. I plan on playing round seven for him next time I see him. It is kind of cool how excited he gets about those little extras. Some of you really got into it as well. Dudes of My Bush you have some funky dance moves. Thanks for playing, Andrea

So Long 2016
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

As the end of the year approaches many of us are taking time to reflect and hope no more celebrity lives are lost. Yes tonight Debbie Reynolds passed away. What a tragic week this has been for her family. First loosing Carrie Fisher and now her mother. It is surprising how many stars have passed this year. I am wondering if it will continue to climb or if this is a phenomenon. Either way, here is hoping 2017 is a bit brighter for everyone.  My year has been pretty good. I have really enjoyed being your Quiz Master. Rucki left big shoes for me to fill. Thanks for being such a wonderful group of quizzers and such good friends. I look forward to Wednesdays with you.

Rickey Henderson Is the Best Rickey Henderson There Is
Cousin Chet

Rickey Henderson not only stole more bases than anyone else in baseball, he was also crazier then anyone else in baseball. First of all this is a guy who often talked about himself in the third person. People who do that tend to be either insane or just plain assholes. And I don’t think that Rickey is an asshole. Also after stealing his record setting base, he announced to the stadium that he considered himself the greatest to ever play the game of baseball. And then when he was being inducted into the Hall of Fame, he spent a portion of the speech talking about trying to get Willie Mays’s autograph as a kid and never getting that autograph. He then informed Mays that he was still

Feed The Children While Chugging Beer
Cousin Chet

Hey, I just wanted to say thank you again for everyone coming out last night to play our Quiz For A Cause for Be About Bliss. Making sure kids are able to eat is one of those things that we can all agree on. Unless you’re some sort of monster who hates children. But you’re not some monster who hates children, are you? I mean, I don’t particularly care for kids, but I do think it’s fundamental that they eat. In fact, I would go so far as to say that they have every right to eat. And that’s because despite not particular caring for kids, I am not a monster who would deny them food. If you want to find out more about Be About Bliss and how you can help, please
