Jack Nicklaus is From My High School
RESII

Sadly, Arnold Palmer died this week. In honour, Geeks Who Drink wrote a lot of questions about golf, including one on Palmer’s greatest rival, Jack William Nicklaus. Arguably the greatest golfer ever, Nicklaus won 18 majors. He also went to my high school. Nicklaus’s nickname is the Golden Bear. Do you know how he received that? Because our high school mascot is the Golden Bear. OK, that was pretty self-indulgent. I apologise. As for the quiz, eleven teams competed, including some real heavyweights. Timmy's First Dinger, a team honouring former New York Jet Tim Tebow’s foray into baseball, took the crown. In second, Cinco

It's Decorative Gourd Season!
AlisonRudd

Ahoy! So, I walked outside this morning and sprung in to a full blown TV commercial moment. I stepped out front to walk my dog, felt that sweet, sweet 55 degree air and instinctively threw my arms out Titanic-style to welcome decorative gourd season... I mean Fall. I'll be the first to admit that pumpkin spice anything is fucking garbage and that new salted caramel nonsense is almost just as bad. Really though, that is my one and only complaint for this season. The air has a chill, leggings as pants make my ass look amazing 24/7, Oktoberfest lagers and the occasional LIGHTLY spiced pumpkin beer abound, and Halloween is just around the corner. Before I risk making myself sound

Round One's Famous Juniors, Ranked

1. Martin Luther King, Jr. – Pretty tough to argue with this one.2. Robert Downey, Jr. – Amazing actor who makes you forget that he got his start thanks to nepotism (his pa was a famous director).3. Ken Griffey, Jr. – As a Mariner, one of the greatest baseball players of his generation. As a Red, got hurt a lot. As a White Sox . . . well that was just unfortunate.4. Sammy Davis, Jr. – By far, the coolest black Jewish Rat Packer.5. Junior Soprano – Placed here before he whacks me.6.

*Note: the events described may be dramatised/the thoughts might also not be accurate/it’s all lies The men of Dos Lobos looked over their sheet. Their knuckles were white from grasping the pencil too tight upon writing another answer. Their foes, Llama Glama sat only a few meters away.

A Love Blog to ‘Varsity Blues,’ the Movie that Defined Nothing but Was Fun as Hell
RESII

Among other films of Wednesday’s visual round, Varsity Blues is fucking fantastic. (Full disclosure: I bought a Lance Harbor T-Shirt in 2009, back when I thought I had disposable income). Friday Night Lights on speed, Varsity Blues is the totally unrealistic, unrepentant film that contains a stripper teacher, a totalitarian Jon Voight, and multiple audibles in high school football. I saw a state championship team from the largest division in Ohio a few years back, the play calling was run, run, run, maybe pass. The point? High school football often isn’t very entertaining. But Varsity Blues sure is. Everyone hams it up (and few

Harry Potter and the Colfax Avenue
RESII

“Where am I?” Harry rubbed his eyes. The portkey had worked, most assuredly. He found himself on a sidewalk next to something called a Popeye’s Chicken. Many other commercial buildings lined the street. “HARRY! Ron, he’s here, Harry’s here!” And with that, Hermione threw herself around Harry like a basilisk. “What is this place?” asked Harry. This time Ron spoke up. “It’s Colfax Avenue in the city of Denver. United States. But that’s not the crazy thing.” “What’s the crazy thing?” “It’s not the nineties anymore, Harry,” said

Best TV Theme Songs
RESII

In honour of yesterday’s round seven of remixed television theme songs. The Twilight Zone – The quintesstinal sci-fi show had the quintessential theme song: brooding, creepy, and timeless. It’s hard to imagine another show tied to a theme like that and I’d imagine most people who have never seen the show can still recognise the song. The X-Files – The spiritual successor to The Twilight Zone, the atmospheric melody lends itself to the eeriness of the show. Friday Night Lights (End Theme) – The opening track is good too but I binge-watched the series on Netflix and never clicked next episode

Where Have You Gone, Joe Piscopo?
RESII

Joe Piscopo was one of several singing comedians in yesterday’s second audio round. In the early 1980s, Murphy and Piscopo dominated Saturday Night Live. Piscopo played Sinatra often and showed off considerable vocal ability. He had leading man looks and plenty of talent. But when Piscopo left SNL in 1984, he found that movie stardom escaped him. He starred in a string of mediocre movies—but really what SNL alum hasn’t—and never seemed to find his footing in Hollywood. Still though, that Sinatra . . . In a bevy of heavyweights, regulars Is this Heaven? No, It's Iowa came out on top. Second place went

Olympic Sports You Should Be Watching
RESII

Well folks, it’s that time of the four years again: Summer Olympic time. Here are some underground neat sports. Trampoline. Do you like gymnastics on stimulants? Because that’s what the trampoline is: basically gymnasts doing floor routines while getting big air. A must watch for all Hollywood stunt coordinators. Handball. A soccer-esque hybrid, handball features a lot more scoring in a much more confined space. Teams try to score a goal and the goalie seems like the most thankless position. Synchronized Diving.

An Essay on Twins
RESII

I knew some identical twins in undergrad. They enjoyed the same jokes and always wanted it repeated to their brothers. When I visited New York City, I stayed with them. They both ended up hooking up with some female identical twins. I know fraternal twins better, having been related to some—my sisters. Personality-wise, they are quite different: one sister is a self-described asshole, the other one would prefer I not write anything about her. One is an artist, the other a lawyer. But I grew up friends with a non-related set of twins. They look much different now—one is rotund and short while his brother is tall and gangly. While they are brothers and they love each

Give Everest a Rest

As round four noted, every year humans trash Mount Everest. There are literally tons of human excrement, bodies, and trash on the mountain face. And for what? Mount Everest is the highest peak in the world—and also one of the most dangerous places in the world. So many people who should not be climbing Everest have tried, with some paying the ultimate price.

Other Movies that Could Describe Female Genitals

Round seven featured movies that could double as euphemisms for the reproductive organs. Films used included No Country for Old Men, Spice World, and The Bone Collector.   Teams that couldn’t grasp all of those movies wrote in their own answers. Among the best were Hot Fuzz, Snatch, and The Bridges of Madison County (ok, I made that last one up but I think it’s solid).   Poop Schmear figured out the most movies and earned the most points overall.

What if 'Sudden Death' Got 'The Onion' Treatment
RESII

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A formerly disgraced city fire marshal dispatched over a dozen kidnappers in a botched hostage crisis involving the Vice President, the seventh game of the Stanley Cup, and several implausible, if not impossible, stunts, police said Tuesday. Darren McCord, 33, of the Pittsburgh fire department and a fire Marshall at the Stanley Cup, saved the Vice President, his daughter, and various other VIPs, authorities said. "Mr. McCord is a model American," said Vice President Daniel Bender in a statement. "He saved many lives, including my own and preventing the kidnappers from stealing millions from the US government." The day started off as a happy one for

Turning Seventy: What Happens When our Superstars Drop?

So Sylvester Stallone turns 70 this week. What happens when superstars like Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and my favourite, Harrison Ford die? They are all of AARP age and now the time is nigh for celebs to die. In this year of 2016, no one is safe. Other film stars have died, sure, but the era of the blockbuster started in the 1970s. Now these women and men who ushered in the era are entering their twilight years—together.

Urban Fervor
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Thesis   30 Rock has always been a cultural touchstone for me. It went on the air at a perfect time in my life. I was in college, studying something completely impractical (English!), and living with four weird and hilarious dudes. We all thought quite highly of ourselves—we were high-minded cultural elites!—but we behaved like boorish dummies all day, every day. TV had shows like Always Sunny to give us our “slobs and monsters” fix, and we enjoyed those well enough. We even had a solid “people too good for their station” outlet in The Office. UK or US: either was just fine. What we didn’t

Swayziness Craziness: The Battle Betwixt ‘Dirty Dancing’ and ‘Roadhouse’
RESII

Wednesday night’s last dead celebrity of round seven was Bodhi himself, Patrick Swayze, giving his epic speech from Roadhouse. In this blog past, I made claim that Roadhouse is one of the most rewatchable films of all time. It is a perfect stupid movie—entertaining in all the right parts while featuring ridiculous situations. But a lady cried out: “for naught—Dirty Dancing is Swayze’s best film.” (Note: those might not have been her exact words). It is a debate as old as the late 1980s: what is Swayze’s best film? Is it Dirty Dancing or Roadhouse. Sorry
