Do I Hear The Sound Of Silence?
Ross the Boss

Was it a peaceful quiz for you tonight, Springdale? It seems so nice tonight for some reason – oh wait – no basketball or skeeball! They sadly went out of order just before quiz and then miraculously started working again just as quiz was wrapping up. Ahhh.....just the glorious sounds of my allergy-ridden voice blabbing in your ears. We had another fun round on actor deaths tonight. Dying by young age. Death by smart sharks. But this time, no Sean Bean. Speaking about actor deaths (too soon?!), tonight we payed homage to the one and only Roger Moore – the Bond to be all Bonds. Who knew him and Hepburn palled around all? Booze Morale

Cut For Time...
Ross the Boss

Was it me or did this quiz just fly by!? It was if I arrived, we did it, and everyone left all in quick succession. Whew. Thanks for joining us once again at Springdale Barrel Room! Tonight we talked about vexillology - the study of flags. It's quite an epic topic. We also talked about the kosher-ness of swordfish. Minus their sword. Crazy quizzers. Apologies for the shortness of the blog this week – I will back on form next week! I'm currently working on a film, with 15-18 hour days on set, so at least I think I've put complete sentences on here. Um, He Was Just A Sub grabbed top honors this week! The Utah Raptors took

A Little More Sean Bean, A Little Less Conversation Please
Ross the Boss

We cannot get enough of Sean Bean here at Geeks Who Drink @ The Springdale Barrel Room. I mean, come on, can you? We had a whole round dedicated to his little face this week, along with a much-needed shoutout to Mr. Bean himself Rowan Atkinson. Scores tonight were up, then down, then up again! My sweet, cat-calling mother, along with my father and friends came in a sweet 5th place. They were there for the beer anyways – they said. Billygoats dominated at the last minute – congrats on your comeback story! We only had a 4 point spread between our Top 4 teams. Such a close race! 2 Guys, A Girl, In A Pizza Place took 2nd

To Become A Llama Rancher
Ross the Boss

Sean Bean has died a lot. In almost a third of his films – 25 to be exact. But has he died the most? There are 3 actors that have died in more films that Mr. Bean. (Does his doctor call him Mr. Bean? Or Mr. S. Bean? I'm sure Rowan Atkinson would have something to say about that, now wouldn't he!). Vincent Price has died in 33 films. Bela Lugosi has died 36 times. Top honour goes to the legendary John Hurt who has met with some odd deaths in 43 of his films. Sadly we said goodbye to the War Doctor and Mr. Ollivander just recently, but we will remember him in all his roles from Alien to V for Vendetta. My wonderful mother was in the audience tonight, getting her Drink

My Favorite Band Asia Is Coming To Town
Ross the Boss

Where do we even start, quizzers?! We learned about the art of Seppuku: I accepted Harikari, even though that is a metathesized version of Seppuku. My generosity should never be mistaken for weakness, quiz-tastic humans. Never! Rounds 1 through 3 started off hot for most teams! Round 1: Our spelling/missing letter round had an average score of 7/8. We couldn't fool you smarty-pants! Round two's audio didn't get your goat, did it? Average score was 10/16! Round three's average score was 11/16 – for a surprise 16 point round, not too shabby! Then, it all went downhill. Well, it wasn't that dramatic, or that horrific. My favorite moment of the night was

You Put What, Where?!
Ross the Boss

Boy, did we learn some deep, dark, twisted things about each other tonight, my quizzers. Bagpiping can be whatever you really want it to be, as long as your axilla and privates have a sexy meeting. I shudder to look at what Urban Dictionary has... “Where the man puts his penis in a girls armpit, whereupon she proceeds to lift her arm up and down, like she is playing the bagpipes.” Well, teams, there you have it. Now you can't say you never learn anything at Geeks Who Drink! Something else I learned is that live-reading of War and Peace is going to set me back 60 hours. Screw that, let's stick to The Cat in the Hat, yea? Some teams flip-flopped all night! After

Brooklyn Is Not A City
Ross the Boss

Oh what I night, quizzers! Late December, back in '63...what a very special time for me. Oh wait, wrong blog. Back to Springdale. We had a few sounds hurdles to compete with, but all-in-all, it was a beautiful night for quiz. Team Skate Fast Eat Ass dominated round after round, taking first place in our hearts. First place prizes went to team Clarence. Team Qui-Gon Gin n' Tonic barely took the 2nd place prize, but they did and that's all matters. If there is one thing to take away from tonight's quiz, it is this: Brooklyn is not a city. They might think they are, but it a part of the oddly shaped pie known

I Love Eddie Vedder...oh, wait...
Ross the Boss

It's so nice to see some crossover teams from my other quiz – welcome to Springdale! If you got there early, I hope you tried your hand at blending some delicious beers, sours and upcoming brews! Mmmm...can't hate this job! After a week off, our pun-tastic team Born On The Bayou A Drank rocked the house down dominating the competition by knowing the right combination of children's literature-based films and Fake Eddie Vedder covers. Team Drinks Well With Others served you all beer, and still came in 2nd place – what have you done lately?! Billygoats has been coming since day one – and

Hey Baby...What's Your pH level?
Ross the Boss

I learned so much this week about the female nether regions – from their pH levels all the way to our tubercles. How cute is that word – tubercle? It sounds like something you'd find on a scavenger hunt, eh? Okay, that got weird...fast. Moving on! Congratulations are in order for Team I Won A Raffle At A Rodeo for knowing all their vagina and boob facts! Play Pinball snatched (see what I did there) the second place spot pushing out Wendy's Next Door by 2 points! Also, huge shout out to team Freckle for getting the “EPA” (Excellent Penmanship Award). Seriously – check it out in the

Chewbacca Should Sing All The Songs
Ross the Boss

 Oh, Springdale! A solid night tonight with 12 voracious teams. We have seen a great following in the last few weeks thanks to you lovely quizzers! Spread the word – all the cool kids are doing quiz and you do not want to miss out! I know how much you loved Chewbacca singing Disney hits, so next week I will be playing only songs by Cherbacca himself. All. Night. Long. Now, I wish that this was true, but sadly there is not an album on iTunes of this (yet?!). Tonight we learned so much about the little folds of flesh we call the brain. In addition – drummers from that band I totally know, it's on the tip of my tongue. Team

The Witty, Erudite Commentary of TVs Nashville
Ross the Boss

Thank you all for making the first 4 weeks of quiz at Springdale kick-ass!  Tell your friends.  Bring your parents.  Share the love! I felt the hunger tonight, you Quizzers of Springdale! You wanted quiz and you wanted it hard. Well, that's what I'm assuming you did because that's how I gave it to you tonight. Everyone applauded, jumped for joy and rejoiced (very quietly, on the inside...) when we had the round on TV's Nashville and Tennessee Williams' plays. Kudos and M&Ms for Team Alt Disney's Beauty and the Queef for slamming it into first. With 50% of the team made up of Jacks Abby/Springdale gnomes, cough, employees –

Who's This Shakespeare Guy Anyway?!
Ross the Boss

Why hello there, Springdale quizzers! Another week, another quiz. I feel like we're getting the handle on this whole quiz thing. We even had our first birthday – Happy Birthday Jen! What a joyous day for all! Weeeee! Okay, back down to earth. Kudos are in order for Team Starship Poopers for taking the top spot – obliterating the competition. But of course they did with 18 people (a wee bit of an exaggeration, they only had 8)! Our second place spot went to Team Staring Is Caring! But with the team being made up for Jacks Abby/Springdale staffers, our 3rd place and 4th place teams took home the prizes for the

Oh, This Is My Stool...Shakespeare?
Ross the Boss

“What the hell is that man yelling into the microphone at us? Is that Lorde's Royals he's saying at me?” Yes, your humble quizmaster tried his hand at being the one and only William Shatner doing his spoken word albums. Yes, Shatner speaks a variety of songs including Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocket Man. Please check it out. You will be rewarded. Team We Definitely Don't Work Here rose up the ranks to clinch the top spot in tonight's quiz! Now, seeing that they actually did work at Springdale/Jacks Abby, we had to go down the list! Game Over, Man came in 2nd tonight. Alternative Facts came in 3rd,

You Know You Want To Get That Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Book!
Ross the Boss

What. A. Great. Night! Thank you, Springdale quizzers for starting off our inaugural quiz with such fervor! We started off our first night with a total of 19 teams (18, if we don't count the team filled with Jacks Abby and Springdale staff – I'm looking at you, Team Hell-Gals!). I hope everyone had a blast, because I sure did. Team Serenity by Jan pulled ahead at the last minute (Round 8, you devil, you!) to grab 1st place tonight! Our first winners! You have literally won the most quizzes at Springdale. How do you feel, team? Teachers Who Drink maintained an impressive lead for 1 hour 45 minutes. That last
