It's the NAME of your TEAM!
The Dave

I will of course preface this by saying I'm not trying to make fun of them (too hard) because I love this guys.  The team formerly known as Hispanic at the Disco, now calling themselves Straight Outta Kauffman, are among the favorite teams at Charlie Hooper's.  They're here every damn week, they're good, they're nice, and Amanda and John are my wedding day twins :-)   But for crying out loud, the song "Straight Outta Compton" was in the music round AND YOU MISSED IT!   I just...I don't know what else to say.   Your winners this week were the rejuvinated and

When I'm not solving network/email problems in my real life, I'm likely spending time absorbing random facts from movies, TV shows, video games, songs, and sports.  Love all things KC, be it Royals, Chiefs, Sporting KC, Boulevard Beer, BBQ, whatever.

Mostly I love trivia, especially random trivia, which is what led me here.  As fun as it is to be a player, I find it even more fun to run the Quiz.  I'm like a younger, American, half-wit version of Alex Trebek that drinks and curses on the job.  And that's a really fun job!

What's the Opposite of Christopher Reeve?
The Dave

That joke was a lot funnier 10 years ago before Christopher Reeve died, but since comedy = tragedy + time I guess it still never gets unfunny, just less relevant.   The opposite of Christopher Reeve is Christopher Walken.   BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, they say!  BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  Not sorry, it's funny.  It's not funny that Christopher Reeve was so seriously injured that he spent the remainder of his life paralyzed.  That's not funny.  What's funny is that by pure luck, Christopher Walken not only existed but was so-named and famous.  If Christopher Walken was EXACTLY the same as he is in every way but his named was

Getting Back in the Groove
The Dave

We're settling back into our old, awesome habits here at Charlie Hooper's.  Your venerable QM Dave is back at the helm, not going anywhere for some time :-)  We filled the red room once again with 13 teams.  We have enough teams that are tough to beat every week that it's, as always, the hardest place to win in the city.   And Herman's Hermits once again proved to be too much to beat.   There's only 2 of them, but they just know so GD much!  It wasn't a runaway, and in fact it was brutally close in the contest for 2nd place, but Herman's Hermits led from the start and led at the finish.  It's a common theme,

We're Back, Baby!
The Dave

Hi, everyone!  Sorry I missed you while I was gone, but I had to get married.  You probably know about it, you should have seen it on the news at this point.   It's been a bit ridiculous.  Our wedding has been linked on roughly 100 different websites and we've appeared on more than 10 different news stations.  And all we did was get married, the real news is the helicopter rescue.  But, whatever, my beautiful wife is now on the internet about as much as any famous person in their wedding dress and I'm totally okay with that.  If you don't know what the hell I'm talking about, Google "wedding helicopter rescue".  You'll have like

You're All Amazing
The Dave

I am a sentimental man.  I have a tendency to be a bit cheesy sometimes.  I cry at sad movies, and I cry at happy movies.  I can be a bit of a wuss when it comes to emotions, but I'm perfectly okay with that. So allow me to tap into that side of me for a minute and thank all of you, my Charlie Hooper's quiz family, for being so great.  Sincerely, I mean it from the bottom of my heart:  I think you guys are all great people and I appreciate every one of you.  Thank you so much for the wonderful card you all gave me to congratulate me on my upcoming wedding.  Jihan and I had a great time reading everything everyone wrote, and she knows who all of you

YOU'RE Utterly Unnecessary!
The Dave

So said a member of our winning team last night after we blatantly insulted Fast and The Furious sequels, and their utter unnecessity.  Full disclosure, I haven't seen anything beyond the first one which he claims is the worst one.  But while I didn't write the question, I have to agree with the sentiment:  the sequels are utterly unnecessary.  So, I'm going to see a 90-ish minute movie with cars going fast, defying physics, being expertly driven by gritty, pretty people, all while narrowly escaping both the law and the even worse bad guys they're up against, set to a background of edgy techno or contrived hip hop. Am I close?  I bet I'm close.  Oh, and
