Bon Vooyage, Score Keepress Kristin
WhitneyWhitworth

Well, the time has come to say good-bye to our score keeper Kristin. She says that she will be back in the fall… even now she is saying to me, as I type, “I WILL BE BACK.” So, I’m not sure if she is quoting The Terminator or actually making promises. Only time will tell. However, she says that she will link her Facebook race page to this blog, so you can track her progress as she makes her way to Alaska to visit polar bears, and maple syrup, and dog sleds, and ice bergs, and the Titanic, and whatever is up there. Who knows?! Anyway, bon voyage! www.facebook.com/teamkelp In other announcements,

I Think the Message Was Clear: Christina Aguilera, You've Been Chopped
WhitneyWhitworth

Well, I got a good report from the babysitter last week. She said you guys were on your best behavior! That pleases me, because you gave me a lot of shit for my weird sexual innuendos this week. I mean, to be honest, I deserved every minute of it. The whole “services under the table” comment was unintentional and so, so wrong. Just when I curse out others for making me say pseudo sexual things, I go right ahead and say them off the cuff. I’m kind of glad my new, fancy co-workers don’t know that I do this yet, because I still want them to somewhat respect me for at least a month. I think you guys respected me for about, maybe that long. It doesn’t take much time

Where in the World Is Kellyanne Conway?
Lady Fishstick

It’s a beautiful day to hide from the sun at Fremont Tavern – which still has its iconic Hotel Hotel sign outside. I hope they keep it as memorabilia.   You guys made for a fun time for this substitute, Whitney 2.0 (a.k.a. Alex). I swear I am not an android, though I would probably make an unconvincing one with my mean-sounding QM voice. It was awesome to chat up some awesome teams (even some fellow Minnesotans!), and I’m glad I got to be a part of your evening.  Whitney will be back with you next week!   Also, comey comey comey comey comey Chameleon -- (our Team Name of the Week) -- thank

And the Winner Is...
WhitneyWhitworth

It finally happened! After months of encouragement and promises that never yielded a victory, Baby Geniuses finally took home the grand prize. I was so proud of you guys! You had some really tough competition tonight, and you did not let me down. I would have cried a tear of joy, but it is rare that I actually have emotions, just emojis (which, satisfyingly enough, we had an entire round covering them.) Speaking of, with two points, you beat out our second placers, Shrug Emoji (more emojis! I guess there is no denying our over-arching theme tonight,) and Snatchbox 20, who were just one point behind them. Seriously, our quiz was so close. Just

Welcome to Fremont, Fremont, Tavern, Tavern,
WhitneyWhitworth

Holy god. Welcome to The Fremont Tavern formerly known as the bar known as Hotel Hotel formerly known as The Dubliner, now accepting new names. Jk.Jk. However, this new name transformation really did provide for some of the best team names I have seen in a long time. Actually, name changes aside, we had some dope a.f. names last night. It was really hard for Kristin and me to choose the best team name of the night. We went back and forth on a whole bunch of things, but here were some of our favorites: spoiler alert, it’s basically everyone. We will start with our winner, Fremont Tavern Fremont Tavern, we also really liked Who the Fuck

Springtime for Quizzers at Hotel Hotel
WhitneyWhitworth

My little quizzlecats, spring is here! I feel like I could run around the bar and pass out flowers to each and every one of you! Yes, perhaps my good mood can be attributed to the sunshine, or the fact that I am finally able to work on my event planning business, or maybe it is just because the very site of you puts me in such a good mood. Personally, I’m pretty sure that it is a combo of things, and I’m just happy to be part of it. Also, thanks to everyone who let me pet their dogs. I think this was the over-all feel of the quiz last night, well, that is, before our final scores came out. Jeebus, that final round killed you guys! Our scoreboards were all scrambled. Let’s

I Didn't Get the Chance to Sing to You, Yet Again
WhitneyWhitworth

Quizzers, it’s me, your sensual chipmunk, coming at you with another update for last night (and for those of you who missed it, say, because you were in South America or Hawaii- not that I’m jealous or anything, because I’m writing this blog from beautiful Everett, WA.) Gosh, sometimes these rounds can really be a challenge for you guys. For the most part, you nailed it- but the random knowledge round proved that there are some topics that we just aren’t great at- like, say, anything about Kurt Douglass. I said it once and I’ll say it again, Michael Douglass is already about 100, so you know that his dad is probably at least quadruple that (math brought

Penguins, The Penguin, and Pennatonix
WhitneyWhitworth

Lesson of the evening: you can’t bank on Round 8 to help your scores, especially when there are odd-ball questions about tiny Alaska towns and dead first ladies. Say it with me, “her first name is ROSALYNN Carter and she IS STILL alive!” Okay. I feel like just saying that has pretty much put the kiss of death on her, so if she dies this year, just know, that was all your fault! Good lord, we had a pretty tough quiz tonight, and I don’t say that lightly, considering we are home to some of the highest-ranking Seattle quizzers there are. It’s okay quizzers, there is always next week. Let’s look at the scoreboard to see exactly what I mean:

Justin Timberlake Has No Say about Tonight's Quiz
WhitneyWhitworth

Who knew that Justin Timberlake had so many song titles that could have also shared a name with the long-standing women’s marches against sexual violence and assault? I mean, of course the correct answer was Take Back the Night, which I remember participating in during my college years, but as some quizzers pointed out, it really could have been a number of things: Sexy Back or Cry Me a River for example. Yikes. There were so many unintentional horrible jokes during that time. All I have to say is that, before tonight, I never made that connection. So, a plea: Mr. Timberlake, if you are reading (which, obvi, why wouldn’t you be?) please consider choosing

Have you ever just had one of those extremely stressful weeks? You know, the kind where you are in the middle of transitioning out of your job that you were supposed have left two weeks ago before they fired your replacement, but now you’re stuck doing all of the work you never though you would have to see again, and you don’t have a replacement job yet, and you’re trying to start your own business, and some shit is going down elsewhere in your life, and you’re pretty sure you have an ulcer and are about to lose your health insurance?

Snatch Box 20 Brings a Tear to My Eye

I want to throw a very proud Quiz Mama shout out to Snatchbox 20 for BEING THE HIGHEST RANKING GEEK BOWL TEAM IN SEATTLE! I did not stutter. They ranked 14th out of over 200 teams! What, what?! I can’t explain how proud I am. I mean, you beat the next highest Seattle team, who play at my Tuesday night venue, so really, I think that is saying something. I wish that I could have been there to support you and cheer you on, but know this, I’m going to brag about you to all of the other Quiz Master parents for the next year. So there is that.

Introducing the Original PedoBear, Milo Yianoppolous, Everybody
WhitneyWhitworth

Rare is a quiz round that I do not feel I can actually read aloud, but I’ll tell you this, you found my uncomfortable spot tonight- and that is trying to talk about any sort of no-man’s land under crotch area. But, I guess, when you’re talking about How Green Is My Valley, and you’re not specifically referencing the movie, you have only a few options as to where you can go with the questions. Speaking of round titles, did you notice that every round, aside from your random knowledge round, was named after a Best Picture Oscar winner? Though, upon review, none of them had anything to actually do with those films. Just a little fun (French) connection

Be My Lupercaliatine
WhitneyWhitworth

s better than having 70 Valentines? Having 70 Lupercalia..ntines? That’s right, here at Hotel Hotel we do it up right and forego the flowers, candy hearts, and cheesy and suggestive cards. Here at Hotel Hotel, we celebrate our love for you with free pints of beer (provided you can be the first to answer the bonus question) as well as unlimited high-fives, though no one took me up on that offer tonight. I also offer my heart, soul, and about five jokes per evening, and that is something that only lame soccer dads can match. CAN MATCH. Do you see? I can’t even stop the shitty puns; they just keep goaling. Womp, womp. Anyway, our Lupercalia Day’s quiz was kind of a challenge,

"We Love Schience"- They Said through Their Braces.and Push Their Glasses up to the Bridge of Their Noses
WhitneyWhitworth

Well, quizlets, that was something, wasn’t it? We really made you work for your money tonight. There were some extremely hard questions and rounds. I mean, average of two points hard. Out of 18 teams, that is saying something. But, I will say this, when you have a group of people who look so forlorn after a music round and so jubilant when I mention a “difficult” scientific terminology round, well, I couldn’t be more proud. Truth be told, I would much rather you know what interferon is than any frigging song by the Pussy Cat Dolls. In fact, you’re what makes me proud of this country.
