I drink and I know things...
UrbanStatue

The Breakdown: Close margins in tonight's quiz!  2 points separated our top two teams: AKA A Charlie Brown Allston Christmas and The Floozies.  Our Stump defectors from last week returned! This week as Ginny's Tonic: A tribute to me and my many ailments I'm sure...a strong 3rd place showing! The Comic Relief:  Look, my tank top was pretty funny.  I was somehow able to source a printing of Tyrion Lannister with the quote "That's What I Do, I Drink and I Know Things".  It's truly a description of any Quizmaster you'll find.  Especially

Oh I'll give you an enclave...
UrbanStatue

The Breakdown: Tonight's quiz showed a real back and forth in standings.  Coming in first tonight was two person team AKA Brace Yourself. They're regulars and sometimes have more people.  They also bring their own mechanical pencils like a BOSS...or because our are never sharp enough for their delicate sensibilities.  Who knows... Coming in a close second was Eight who contrary to their name only had three people.  It was the first time I'd seen them at quiz so good standing there!  In third place was The Faux Paws who were self described Stump! Defectors looking for a quiz

Le Format du Alex
UrbanStatue

I think today I am going to attempt Alex's format for blogging....seems fun, no? The Breakdown: The Floozies were strong tonight!  With an extra 16 point round at stake, they pulled out 96 points (out of a possible 104).  They very smartly jokered Round 3 (Sooner or Later: Chair and Bullhorn Edition) which they had a perfect score on and submitted early for 16 points.  Trump Tower Taco Bowls came in a close second place - if they had done better on Round 2 (Seven-Letter Army) they may have caught up! It really was their downfall as they had four rounds with perfect 8/8 scores.   The

The B*tch is BACK!
UrbanStatue

You guys.  I'm BACK! And in full force.  It is SO good to be back at Joe Sent Me.  Sad to see Alex go, of course, but more quiz for me!   Tonight had a timed Round 3 (When Does Antartica Get A Turn?) which I'm always a fan of doing.  I like to see you quizzers work together, hem and haw, sweat a little and then triumphantly put in their answers.  Most of our teams did very well on this round on non-North American/Eurpoean Olympic cities.  Sorry guys...Sochi declares they're in Europe.   My cats were also please to hear a round devoted to them (Film Chat Noir).  I had them on speaker so they could hear.  Bernie said

Adam with a shave and a haircut
SnarlFu

Who knew he'd look as clownish as that???   The Breakdown: Despite a strong showing by Finger Prince, Joe and the Floozies were able to hold onto the lead by a point, largely thanks to Pete's knowledge of NBA history enabling them to be the only team to ace the Miami Heat retired numbers question. Third place was strongly contested, never being occupied by less than two teams all night, but there ain't no prize for third. That ain't how this shit works. You know how this shit works. How do you like how that shit works? Welcome to The Rock.   The Comic Relief: You.

From last to better than you
SnarlFu

...just like *that*.   The Breakdown: Chalk up another win for Joe Bent Over the A-Town Floozies. First place to them is like the home they've been living in for so long that it's seen them go crazy and start hoarding all sorts of newspapers and food bags and dead cats and stuff. It's strange at the top. The story of the night, though, belonged to AKA It's Spelt Matzah, who sat in last place all the way through round 7, and beautifully demonstrated a textbook joker comeback to finish only a point away from the lead. Ladies, gentlemen, and non-gender specific progressives, that is how it's

The Turtle couldn't help us
SnarlFu

The Breakdown: Tough break for Joe Bent Over the A-Town Floozies, who led early but lost the top spot to The Voice of the Turtle, who hold a special place in my heart even setting aside the win, for referencing my favorite Stephen King book with their name.   The Comic Relief: All Zanca tonight, for their visual round answer sheet, which is pictured at left. I can only wish that the Cinderella franchise was so ridiculously awesome.   The Geekout: An oldie but a goodie.

Regular Als Only
SnarlFu

The Breakdown: A field crowded at the top led to quite the slugfest tonight; Slurenity, Joe and the Floozies, Sideburns, the Blue Barracudas and Flaunt Some and Get Some all had a piece of the podium at one point or another, partially thanks to a crowd-friendly (though not Weird Al-friendly) audio round, but it was AKA: “Other New England” that came out on top. All your base are belong to them.   The Comic Relief: This one's all Zanca: “What's the name of that

Ever had a three-way in public?
SnarlFu

  The Breakdown: My dear, sweet, naked baby Jesus, that was the closest pub quiz I've ever been in the room with, let alone hosted. Joe and the Floozies started out ahead, but by halftime AKA had caught up. The two remained neck and neck through the end of regulation time, at which point Sexy Jeff Goldblum had finally rocked their joker, propelling them to join the other two in luscious three-way tie-dom. The sudden death round went for all five questions with no change—what ye knew, ye all knew, and what ye didn't knew nary a soul knew too—and I finally employed a

Top of the Pub
SnarlFu

The Breakdown: A decisive win for Last Week's #1 Team in the Country—whose name, by the way, is no fluke. Their 89-point total in last week's quiz was the highest of any team playing quiz in the entire country last Wednesday. Chalk up another 16-point victory, nbd. I piss wins. Whateva.   The Geekout: I hope you're all enjoying watching the robots take over as much as I am. The best part is watching people freak out about their jobs.

I'll take all the points, thanks very much.
SnarlFu

The Breakdown: It was all Joe and the Floozies tonight, make no mistake about it. Only seven points shy of a perfect score, their 89 points marked what is probably the highest total I've ever seen in a quiz that didn't include an extra 16-pt round. Good fuckin job, I don't mind saying.   The Comic Relief: This one goes to In Third Place (good to see yall again!) for their answer on the question about the only state without straight-line borders. Before correctly answering “Hawaii,” they wrote down and crossed out “Wyoming”

Game: Voltron.
SnarlFu

The Breakdown: What do you do when you've won half your home quizzes in the past year, another team has won the other half, and you both show up to quiz with only half your team? Ask AKA Joe Bent Over the A-Town Floozies. I thought I was looking at MJ's dream team in the olympics. At a brain-shrinking total of 85 points, they couldn't be touched. With our powers combined... Rosebud...Weiser held on for an excellent R8 showing to snatch second, but were DQ'ed with too many quizzers, yielding the silver to Winter is Leaving. Which it is, thanks to climate change and a Spanish baby.   The

OMG is English!
SnarlFu

It's true, I swear!   The Breakdown: All AKA tonight. With a scant two heads, alone in the room in jokering their 12-point R3, they prevailed over the rest of the pack. Quite impressive if you ask me, or even if you don't.   The Comic Relief: This one goes to Fluff and Stuff. What sect was once the official state religion of Italy? “Sarah Jessica Parker.” Don't ask me, but I'm not going to say I didn't almost give them the

...Not the Saxophone!
SnarlFu

I must be in the company of those who are of the opinion that sax doesn't ruin anything. How else can I explain having awarded so many points in that R2? I might as well have careless whispered the answers in your ear. (uncontrollable laughter) The Breakdown: AKA, whole or not, but especially whole, is a formidable adversary. They demonstrated as much tonight with a fearsome total score of 93. Yeah, I know, there was an extra 16-point round in there, but still. Odd Answers are in the Back of the Book showed remarkable mettle, fighting to get by No Use For a Name despite the latter's

For the Independence of Underwear
SnarlFu

Great to see so many new faces tonight. You're all beautiful. I want to make love to you all at the same time. Come back next week, we'll go from there.   The Breakdown: The Metadatables had this one pretty well wrapped up from jump, though we saw a heated battle for second finish one point in the favor of How Can Our Answers Be Wrong When They Feel So Right? Joe Bent Over the A-Town Floozies (gotta love 6+ word team names) made a good run there at the end but will have to settle for a show. Props to Late Again, Tom's Team and the Metadatables—you

If only Elton John and Bernie Sanders did an album together
SnarlFu

You're welcome for saving the music situation in the hour before quiz time tonight by playing Tumbleweed Connection front to back. If you only get to listen to that album once a week, it's not enough.   The Breakdown: Yall were all over the map tonight! Seventh to second to fourth were AKA, the Floozies came back after R6 from fifth to wrest first place from Rif Hax, who ended up in the bottom half... let this be a reminder to you, anything goes, especially with no clothes, and when it comes to hos, you can't make a ho a housewife.
