Cleveland is the Most Tortured Sports City and It Is Not Even Close
RESII

Cleveland, the city known for having one of its river’s catching on fire (because of pollutants), has the worst luck in professional sports, as was stated in round four.  Let’s review. Indians (no World Series Championships since 1948). The Indians of the 90s are much like the Broncos of a couple years back: fans appreciate their offense but they couldn’t win it all. (Can Denver will with the defense leading the way? There’s a game on Sunday). Anyway, the Tribe was just an inning away from winning the World Series in 1997 and a game away from winning the American League in 2007. That 2007 missed opportunity still haunts. Browns

MVP of the Acting BPs: Bill Paxton in a Landslide
RESII

Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman have been linked for years. Hell, the rivalry has even been mentioned on Saturday Night Live. Inspired by Wednesday night’s round three, I can stay silent no longer: Paxton unequivocally wins this battle of the Bills. Because Paxton has been in so many good films, he wipes the floor with Pullman, even though Pullman is no slouch himself. Pullman’s best movies include Spaceballs, A League of Their Own, and Independence Day. That is an impressive list. However, Pullman really only shines as an actor in those aforementioned films in his speech to the troops in Independence Day; in most of his work, Pullman simply

The Truth Is Over There
Cousin Chet

It was a grey day at FBI headquarters. Fox sat staring at the blue monitor of his Dell desktop computer. Behind him Dana looked on. They were looking at something about aliens, I think. “I don’t know,” Dana said skeptically. “I don’t think aliens are behind the Trump campaign.” “But, there’s just too much strange stuff going on here,” Mulder said spookily. “I mean, have you seen this guy’s hair?” “I think it’s just a bad comb over. But we’re ignoring the real issue here. The thing that has been following us for so long.” “What do you mean?” Fox asked with

I Watch Wrestling While Drunk
RESII

A svelte seven teams mind jousted Wednesday for mirth and gift certificates. Broke Public Servants—will there ever be super rich public servants? Unfortunately probably not—thanks Obama—broke the bank and won the main prize, $35 to Three Lions. Not far behind, Llama Glama took second place and Spunk Bubble took third. Wood for Sheep and RKO out of Nowhere tied for fourth. RKO is the finishing move of Randy Orton. He’s a professional wrestler. My cousin told me that. I certainly don’t watch wrestling when I’m drunk. That is a

I Facetiously Describe the Fashions of the Winning Team

In a comeback that would make Chris Pratt blush, Llama Glama rocketed from seventh place to first by the end of the night. But just who are these Wednesday warriors? And, more importantly, who are they wearing?* *Note: Names have been changed by request of my humour FRANCINI sports a sweater that shows what happens when you change to a TV station that you do not have.

The Best of 2015, IMO
RESII

With the last quiz of Three Lions, I thought it prudent to give out some recommendations on the bests through the year. Best Album: Tame Impala, Currents. This Australian act has produced an electronic masterpiece that is parts dance-y and melancholy. I keep listening to it over and over. Simply sensational. Best Film: Mad Max: Fury Road. This movie just never lets up. It’s really just a simple story of escape for two hours but boy, is it entertaining. The cinematography and spectacle are ludicrousness vast and gorgeous. Best Book: Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian by E L James. No. Best Browns Victory: The one

Sprinting from the Bar in Under 2.5 Seconds
DanielCostie

Twas nice to cameo at 3 Lions on the night before the night before Christmas. The night started out slow. But just as I thought, there was a huge influx of people at the last minute. Robert must’ve told ‘em I was coming. I think I was received well. I don’t want to toot my own horn but…. I got some compliments. There was some sexy verbiage being thrown around that I wouldn’t argue with. But these were some cool people. I really enjoyed my time at 3 Lions. The exposed brick! Super cool…   And now to the rankings!!!! So it was Kevin’s birthday. And, get this, he is the brother of some old regulars I had at a bar up in the northwest.

BNL: A '90s Band with Staying Power
RESII

Wednesday’s “Mystery Round” paid tribute to one of the great acts of the 90s, the Barenaked Ladies (or BNL). The Barenaked Ladies were my first concert (along with opening act, Meredith Brooks! That’s right, the lady who sang that “Bitch” song!). So I am not completely unbiased in saying they put on a great show. But I’m also not the only one who enjoys their catchy melodies or quirky lyrics. Movies put BNL’s biggest hit, “One Week” into their films, including American Pie and 10 Things I Hate About You. Legions of fans have followed them around from show to show. (I have been to three or four of their shows). They

A Shout out to the Real Heroes, the Visual Rounds
RESII

As a quizmaster, I’m constantly dealing with fans. All the time, people bump into me on the street—from time to time they also steal my wallet. After discerning that they’ve made a considerate error in judgment by talking to me, they usually say the same thing: “I love-LOVE-your blog entries but why don’t you give the visual round some love?”It’s true. In my 93 years of blogging, the visual round usually does not get its due credit. WELL THAT ENDS TODAY. Visual rounds are awesome; they give break up the quiz well by giving the ears a rest and the eyes a chance to take over. Some of my favourite visual rounds include real life

Truman defeats Dewey. Douglas over Tyson. Bryan bests Bautista/Orton. Holm KO’s Rousey. These are all upsets, but that pales in comparison to Cleveland Steamers winning this quiz.

The Art of the Short Goodbye
RESII

By most accounts, Peyton Manning and Kobe Bryant are considered top ten all-time in their respective sports positions. And by virtually all accounts, both are currently having terrible seasons. It’s tough to see a great athlete hang it up for good. Lots of times, the athlete wants to keep going until the glory is gone. Muhammad Ali had to get pummeled by Larry Holmes before he retired. Which is what makes Barry Sanders faxing his retirement notice in 1999 special (round six). Sanders retired on top of his game rather than get destroyed by a bad Lions team. Sure, Sanders may have had more left in the tank but we also didn’t have to watch him deteriorate. We

Does Anyone Else Remember McDonald's Pizza?
RESII

Growing up in the great of city of Columbus, Ohio had its advantages. One, the football team was perennially taking names. Two, it was mostly sunny two days of most weeks. Three, we had McDonald’s Pizza. McDonald’s Pizza, you say? Surely I am jokering, not unlike the jester face on every page of the quiz packet. But nay, I say. I joker not. McDonald’s Pizza was a real thing around my nape of the way (I’m ripping off a lot of comedies today) during the mid-90s. I would get a personal pizza with my fries and high fructose corn syrup beverage. It was ok. The pizza was very reminiscent of Pizza Hut: a pan pizza that was very puffy. Doing

William Shatner Face was the best face Wednesday as they led from round one to round the last. Chasing Captain Kirk’s façade was Llama Glama and Solo Lobo, both quizzing veterans that I would follow to the ends of Cardassia.   If you are looking for a salaciously fun read, then check out Mötley Crüe’s The Dirt. This book tells the sordid exploits of Nixxi Sixx, Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, and others throughout the years.
