It’s Too Damn Cold
Daniel

Houstonians are mostly ninnies when it comes to cold weather, so Tuesday night’s 50-degree weather was uneasy, but we still had some brave souls tough it and make it to the quiz. I wasn’t creative enough to come up with an overall theme for a team-name bonus, but I’ll still give a special shout-out to the night’s first-place winners Rudolph the Red-Nosed Crack Whore. It was pleasantly disrespectful, and that’s kind of my thing. Highlights of the night definitely included the audio clip from King of the Hill and Count/Sandwich clue for the Count of Monte Cristo. Second place went to 4 Single People, 1 Married Girl,

Brothers and Burgers
Daniel

Last night was an interesting one for sure. My brother decided to celebrate his 25th birthday with us playing quiz, and the rest of my family attended; that includes my parents, my sister and her husband, and my Spanish-speaking great aunt. There wasn’t too much profanity built into the quiz last night, so I got lucky there, but one team decided to call themselves Multiple Scoregasms. I had announced a bonus for the best punny burger name, but they clearly just wanted to make me uncomfortable in front of my family. Even though there was a smaller crowd than usual, it was still a good night. As I mentioned, the team name bonus was punny burger names

Mayflower? I hardly know her!
Daniel

We are officially in the middle of fall in Houston – you can tell because it is a crisp 75 degrees at night. In the memory of a holiday that will soon be known simply as Pre-Christmas, we celebrated Thanksgiving by incorporating the theme into the team names. My top three favorites were 50 Shades of Gravy, Poke-our-hontus, and the winner of the best team name contest: Mayflower? I Hardly Know Her! All good team names last night, but those were my favorite. Mostly ups from the night, but there was a slight down. Whilst I was inviting tables to join us for quiz, one gentlemen had a less-than-hilarious quip about us “not buying

I Can't Take Pictures to Save My Life
Daniel

Almost entirely unrelated to quiz: I highly recommend watching Black Mirror; it is weird and dark, and I love it. Nicely segueing into quiz last night, it was kind of weird. I still love Christian’s Tailgate, but I’ve never had a team start in round 2 and then immediately leave – last night, 2 teams did it! I don’t understand! The only other awkward part of the evening was during the first score break when everyone heard team names for the first time. Penis joke here, the word “quiz” euphemistically substituted for male ejaculation there – you know, the standard names… until: Trump Pence. An audible groan rose out of

Everyone is Doing Stuff With Their Hands
Daniel

Major shout out to the manager at Christians Tailgate Midtown named Rigo who witnessed two women walking past his bar stumble and fall in the street and then helped them up and walked them home. While Rigo was a total boss and did a very gentlemanly thing, let’s all remember to drink responsibly…at least responsibly enough to not be falling over one another in the middle of a street. So, looks like I’ll be at Christians Tailgate Midtown for a few more weeks, and I am stoked! Last week was packed, last night was not, but both times had great quizzers, and I hope that tradition continues for the rest of November. It’s

Sadism & Stuff
Daniel

Christians Tailgate Midtown was a very solid venue with nice staff and good hotdogs (avoid phallic thoughts)! Easily one of the toughest nights I’ve witnessed for my quizzers; as it turns out, not everyone was a huge fan of Marquis de Sade or Harry Caray. Despite that, there were still some very high scores thanks to well-utilized Joker rounds. The night went on as so: Prisoners of Asskaban kicked everyone else’s asskabans all night long. The rest of the teams ended up going back and forth, but ultimately the Skanks and Ex- Skanks coming in second and third, respectively.

Hello humans and those of you who double park because you'll "only be a minute". Please jump off a cliff. Quiz happened last night. Thus me writing this. It was pretty fun. Yall seemed to have a good time. Except one team. This team wanted to have "words" after quiz. I didn't want to put up with any complaining so I left right after. But if you're that team and you're reading this, here are some words for you: Fork Pork Park Hark Tow Truck Fart TV Spoon Dog Log Quiz Toy Hope that clears things up for yall. Until next time...

The Results Are In: I Am Better than Kyle
Dynamite Dan(ielle)

Hello there! This is Danielle, sitting in for Kyle once again. I have now officially quizzed on (and missed) both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur now, which makes me the worst Jew-that’s-not-yet-a-Jew ever. But that’s beside the point. Quiz tonight was punctuated by shouts of joy, which I was disappointed to learn were not accolades for my quizmaster duties, but excitement over the bases-ball game being shown on the television box. Ken Bone cancelled his scheduled appearance but made himself known in our visual round. In our Sooner or Later section, all four teams turned in their sheets “sooner”. I am so proud of you all. What brave li’l nuggets the whole

Hello humans and those of you who don't wipe down your machines after you're done using them at the gym. Heathens. Last nights quiz was... Well... Interesting. I hate to steal a phrase from a fellow quizmaster, but in this case Pete is right, next week bring smarter friends! Congrats go to It Was Loud & Weird for taking home the victory and becoming the new GWD Universal Champions. I know we had a disagreement about a question last night, but i'm glad yall understood my reasoning once I had a chance to explain after quiz.  So in one of my fantasy football leagues we had a trade go down last night. Someone traded Odell Beckham Jr.

Kyle King

Hello humans and those of you who drilled into their iPhone 7s to make a head phone jack. Idiots. Last night we came, we saw, and we quizzed. We quizzed hard. Here's how it went: We had a round about Recent Stuff, the audio round from hell where you had to guess the covers, naming elements that start with C, a tribute to Arnold Palmer, and the nerdiest of nerd rounds. I love Before and After rounds. And so do yall apparently. Because that was the best round yall had as a whole.  In the end it was our reigning defending champions hanging onto the belt with a ONE POINT victory and proving once again, they're better than you, and they know it! So Sunday

Hello humans and those of you who get Men In Black confused with Independence Day. Racist. Quiz was a lot of fun last night. We had a really close matchup up going all night long and it was Bagley's Mates who came out ahead with a ONE POINT VICTORY! Congrats! Now come out next week and defend that sucker. Yesterday America was rocked to it's very core when we received that news of Angelina and Brad Pitt's divorce. Who would have ever thought that those two wouldn't make it? I mean, they adopted like 17 trophies... I mean kids together. I really thought they were in it for the long haul. How will we ever go on? Oh hey, look, a penny! Until

Hello humans and those of you who think it's ok to do your makeup while driving. Cut that shit out. We had a great night of quiz as Admiral Ackbar dropped their title to Funky Butt Lovin in a close, hard fought match! We had a round last night called "The Best Arquette" (or something like that) but I disagree. Yeah I know Alexis just died and pioneer for transgender and blah blah blah... But did Alexis ever marry and bang Courtney Cox the 3rd hottest memeber of friends (after Jennifer Anniston & Matt LeBlanc)? Did she ever star in a movie called 8 Legged Freaks with an up and coming actress named Scarlette Johanson?

Hello humans and those of you who microwave fish in the company break room. It smells horrible and you're an inconsiderate asshole. Last night saw a few new faces, the return of a team, and two of our regulars battle for supremacy. A quick congrats to Admiral Akbar for not only avoiding a trap, but also taking the Geeks Who Drink World Heavyweight Championship from Dick Cheese & Crackers. Now let me apologize for my absence last week. Turns out that having to be to work at 3:30 in the damn morning prevents me from hosting quiz till 10pm. I apologize.

I apologize for all the rabid Geeks groupies (honestly, those are our favorite kind of groupie) who were expecting Kyle and belt last night. You had to make do with lil' ol' me. Actually, I'm not really sorry because I had a lot of fun with all of y'all! From current events to mystery rounds on the X-men to a visual round full of awesome buzz cutted women, it was a pretty good night. Add $3 Shiner, 8th Wonder and Karbach? That sounds like heaven to me.  We had 10 teams playing, and for the first time ever I've had two teams with pull out couch themed names. Now, one of those claimed they didn't pull out, while the other promised they did. I bet you

Hello humans and those of you who like black liquorice. You disgust me. I would like to thank Karbach Brewery for coming out and sponsoring our quiz last night. They provided tons of free glasses, koozies, brewery passes, and metal signs. They always know how to spoil us with the best things. Congrats to The Snuggle Is Real for coming out and picking up the victory. They pulled off the one point win over the reigning, defending champion Dick Cheese & Crackers who fought hard the whole way through.  So as most of you know i've been binge watching Game Of Thrones.

Hello humans and those of you who think tarantula's are pets. They're not. And you're disgusting. So season 2 of Game of Thrones is going well for me so far. It was a little slow at first, but it's starting to pick up. I'm hoping with each passing minute that someone kills Joffrey in the worst possible way. Unfortunately, from what i've seen from this show, the writers like to torment you, so I have a feeling he'll be around for a bit.  Congrats go out to Dick Cheese & Crackers who picked up 6 passes to Buffalo Brewery, a $25 gift card, and the GWD World Heavyweight Championship. After trailing all game long, they picked it up in
