Here Comes The Rain Again
Weazel

Is it just me, or do we always get non-sunny weather on our quiz Thursdays?  I feel like every week, I'm either walking through the rain or the snow to get from my car to quiz... perfect quizzin weather, I'd say! Some appropriate videos inspired by tonight: -​BE​ES! ​-Compilation of Sean Bean deaths (spoilers, obviously!) Rounds were all over the place (as they tend to be!) with them covering Oklahoma, songs that are contrasting, actors and how they die in movies, Roger Moore (RIP, Bond, James Bond), ​famous

From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.

​ Winter 2017: The Comeback
Weazel

​Well, I think we can all thank Jon Snow for CONSTANTLY saying “Winter is Coming” for forcing it to make a comeback in mid-May.  I personally think it's pretty fun... all the trees around my house have so far remained intact, but I do have a few plants that look done for.  Oh well!  What matters is that YOU guys are all badasses for coming out in the weather and playing quiz.   Weather be damned!  I heart you all for being so fraking awesome!! Rounds tonight were all over the board, covering stuff that has recently happened, classified songs, Daisy Ridley, Ridley Scott, Browns, board games, beers, guardians, galaxies, “celebrities”

​ Get Off My Back, Yoda!!
Weazel

​Happy May the Fourth, everyone!!  And thanks for coming out tonight despite the fact that there was an amazing Star Wars quiz happening on the other end of town and it is finals week.  Good luck to those testing, and cheers to those testing who still came out to drink and quiz tonight.  You are the real MVPs! Rounds were all over the place with topics such as spraying answers, cover songs, on-screen deaths, influential people, national plants, beastly things, beginnings and endings of shows, and the always random round eight.  Congrats to Team Go Broncos! #ButtStuff for sweeping in the win! Shameless plug:  this Saturday, my choir

It's A Small World After All... Worst. Ride. EVER!
Weazel

Yeah, luckily all the rides in round seven I would totally go on.  It's a Small World?  NEVER AGAIN! Fun fact:  I am a herpetologist!  Yep, after helping out my Dad since I was about 5 years old, I got a summer job throughout high school and college helping the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources doing turtle, salamander, and snake studies all over the state.  My Dad and I also go to the Wisconsin River every summer (now, when I can make it back) to collect, incubate, and hatch turtle eggs to assist with their population growth/success. Yep, now you know! Quiz was all over the board with rounds on theme park rides, body pillows, Japanese things,

Pre-Birthday Shenanigans
Weazel

​Goodbye 32 – Hello 33!  Yep, this weekend (Sunday to be exact), I will be turning 33.  WOOT!  I shall be celebrating by playing the Krazy Karl’s quiz this Saturday, which is a Quiz for a Cause for Planned Parenthood (WOOHOO!), and then going to play games at the new Pinball Jones just down the street on Elizabeth.  Bring $5 for the Quiz for a Cause, and some quarters for the pinball games and join me, won’t you? :)  On Sunday, the actual day, I plan to head up into the mountains with my main man, Mr. Montague, and go for a lovely hike.  ​When we return, I plan on curling up on the couch and reading the night away.  Oh, and Friday

​It’s Zombie Jesus Weekend!
Weazel

​I totally tweeted that once when I went to church with my Grandma (it was our tradition, I would take her to Easter service so she could show me and my “birthing hips” off to her friends, and then we would go have brunch… I kinda miss hanging out with that awesome, ridiculous woman despite the church and hip grabbing stuff).  But real talk, the story of Jesus’s death and ascension is basically admitting he’s a zombie.  And that is terrifying… For reals, though, Happy Easter and Happy Passover!!  Have fun with your families if that’s what the plan is and definitely go try to find some randomly hidden eggs somewhere.

​Thirteen teams packed into the amazing McClellan's Brewery tonight to enjoy delicious beers, yummy foods, and awesome quizness.  Quiz at McClellan's each Thursday has honestly become one of the favorite parts of my week!  LOVE IT! Welcome to Julie, our newest quizmaster in training, who was taking over the mic for the first time ever for Geeks Who Drink tonight!  She's pretty kick ass, I'm excited to see which venue she gets and look forward to playing her quizzes.  Quiz covered everything from food movies, hot topic, goth stuff, kids lit​ (so bummed Go the Fuck to Sleep wasn't on the list...)​, suffering actors, national capitals, Eddie Vedder, things

Cancer Free Is The Way To Be!
Weazel

​Yesterday afternoon I got the call from the CSU oncology team that my Mister Montague the Moose is officially cancer free.  WOOHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!  It is such a relief to learn everything Monty and I have gone through the last two months has led to him back on track to enjoy his life as he is meant to.  Now, we focus on healing up from surgery and snuggling ALL THE TIME.  And, once he’s healed up, we are going to have so many awesome adventures, too, to celebrate. ALL THE HIKING!  Thank you for all your love and support as we went through this battle.  I really appreciate you guys so, so very much. Quiz was the ever random creature it is, with rounds

SPORTSBALLS (Basketball Edition)
Weazel

​Yep, tonight was our usual awesome quiz AND we are back at it for our brackets!  Mine, somehow, is still pretty much intact with my final four still all alive (at the moment).  Sorry not sorry to those who picked Nova to win it all.  NOT SORRY!  GO BADGERS!  Let’s hope they can stay alive through Friday night and this weekend, and that my bracket can stay alive as well.  GO SPORTS! Quiz covered all kinds of awesome shit, including our favorite Wookie singing the best songs (seriously, that is hands down my favorite round that we’ve ever done), UR words, banging drummers, television shows, brains, and the ever random round eight.  Congratulations

​Monty the Moose
Weazel

​Yeah, my moose man is spending the night at Colorado State University’s Flint Animal Cancer Center after having his surgery today to hopefully fully and forever remove his mouth cancer.  They removed his lower jaw just behind his bottom canines (he’s going to be the best derper dog EVER!).  This will be the first time in over ten years that I will sleep at home without him there, too.  I’m kind of a wreck, guys.  So, thank you for coming out to quiz to distract me and get my mind off of things for a few hours.  And thank you for being cool with me taking the call from his surgeon to hear he got out of surgery a-okay.  I heart you all so, so

​Still Basking In Geek Bowlness
Weazel

​Yep, I survived!!  It was a whirlwind three days of pre-parties, the actual BOWL, post-parties, and brunches.  I did the underground tour (HIGHLY recommend it!), walked through the Chihuly museum, visited the market and ate at the Crumpet Shop, went to the Olympic Sculpture Park, said hello to the Fremont Troll, and visited a few breweries.  It was an amazing weekend of booze, friends, and quiz.  And next year’s Geek Bowl?  It will be in BOSTON!  That’s right, let’s all go freeze our balls off together next February at Geek Bowl 12 in the great (arguable) state of Massachusetts!

​Twas the Night Before I Left For Geek Bowl XI

​Indeed!  It is true!  Tomorrow morning at 6am, I leave for the airport to fly out to Seattle for the Great Geek Bowl Eleven.  I’m pumped!!!  It will be a whirlwind three days of pre-parties, the actual BOWL, post-parties, and brunches.  And I also hope to catch some sights and sounds of the city of Seattle.  I’ve been once before, but only for a few days, so there are definitely some things I am looking forward to exploring.  Hoping to stop at a few breweries, eat delicious foods, do the underground tour, and check out the campus nearby … and maybe check a museum or two out.  Who knows?! All I know is I plan for little sleep

Its a small world
John, Time Lord and Quiz Master

This was a great second substitution run here at McClellans, Thanks to Joe and the staff, and to Jenna for having me in to torture you with my presence for another evening.One of the most interesting things for me was running into Lauren, who was visiting from the Scranton area of Pennsylvania. I knew one person from that area whom I worked with in upstate NY, and not only did this visitor know my old friend from NY, Lauren actually dated her brother. Its cool how quiz can bring people together.I really dig the atmosphere at McClellans, the traditional pub style, great food and awesome beer. I look forward to every opportunity to stand in and hang out

As I sat in New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, York
I found myself reflecting on the recent actions of the one known as The Doctor. Realizing how many lives he had saved, how much good he had done, i decided that there was only one thing that I could do to measure up; I needed to travel back in time to the year 2014 and become a quizmaster to help increase the general useless knowledge of the population. So here I am, Geeks of Fort Collins, to bring to you the knowledge of all space and time, at least the stuff that sort of matters.

John is originally from New York (upstate, the part that doesnt suck)

plays guitar, bass, saxaphone, a bit of keyboard

enjoys long walks off of short piers, picnics at the wrong end of a firing range, and playing in traffic.
