Geeks Who Drink Bull Feeney's - Celebrity Edition!
SecondChild

   Ladies and gentlemen, if you weren't there at Bull Feeney's last night for our magnificent pub quiz, I feel legitimately sorry for you.    Not only did you miss a wonderful and charming night of quite interesting information, great music, and incredibly not lame certainly not dad-jokes from yours truly, but you missed out on a chance to meet actors Will Forte and Paul Rudd (playing for different teams, pictured together)! Wow! They wouldn't admit it was them, of course, but I knew better.   For serious though, it was a great night and I was super happy to see The Defenders of Righteousness place

It's a Goddamned Conspiracy, I Tell Ya
SecondChild

Hello Geeks and Freaks (my people!) and let me tell you: if you missed last night's Pub Quiz at Bull Feeney's, you missed something awfully special. Regulars My Personal Favorites and the team currently known as My Oedipal Romance were there, as we would all hope, as well as the Defenders of Righteousness and Jalapeno FACE! and Destination Disappointment - Monday Night Raw ended up placing second, capping off a great run which began very strong with a nicely executed and Jokered Round 2.  The quiz was amusing and

WAI U EAT MY BLOG?
SecondChild

   Oh man, I'm so angry right now I feel like blood is about to start leaking out of my eyes.    I just finished writing up one of the funniest, wittiest, most thoughtful descriptions of a Pub Quiz that has ever potentially but not quite graced this blog.  Apparently, I took a little too long writing and editing it, because when I went to submit it, I was told to login. Yes, the old timeout ploy.  Really kind of upset about this.  I'll try not to let it get me down too much but I know this redo will never live up to the original.   Let's see...  Oh, I remember being really happy

Starbucks Gives Diabetes to Unicorns
Uncle Buck Mulligan

Or something like that. That frappe has more sugar than 8 snickers bar. It’s basically a 16oz pixie stick that someone decided needed some extra sugar on the side. I wasn’t going to get one but then I realized I couldn’t resist an icy beverage that mimics a haircut for basic bitches.   We covered some other news, like the iPhone 8 trying to steal your identity or something and Scarlett Johannson and Charlize Theron going head to head in the box office like it’s 2003. And honestly, if we tried to predict this in 2003, I would not have thought it would have been Charlize Theron breaking the box office records in the 8th Fast and Furious

Steven Seagal: Dog Murderer
Uncle Buck Mulligan

So apparently Steven Seagal had a reality show on A&E called “Steven Seagal: Lawman” all about how him being a reserve deputy in the county in Louisiana where he lived. That seems like a bad enough idea to start with, and A&E came around to that fact when his personal assistant sued him for asking her to join his harem with two Russian women, cancelling the show.   Then, America’s least favorite “Bad Cop”, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, decided that he should get involved and the show moved to some racist shithole in Arizona, and also to Reelz, which I did not know was still a thing. While in this racist shithole, some other douchebags decided

Mama Said Knock You Out
Uncle Buck Mulligan

Don’t call it a comeback, I literally have spent years of my life hosting pub quiz at Bull Feeneys. It’s always nice to stop back in and see how it’s all developed, and plenty of new faces there last night. Granted, all the strangers made it a bit weird when I had to talk about gonad juice, but it’s all swings and roundabouts.   We covered all sorts of fun stuff last night. Round 2 was a covers round, and for once a set of covers where some of the new versions could arguably be described as better than the originals. I’m looking at you, Ednaswap and Natalie Imbruglia. No, but seriously, Otis Redding is great, but he does not sing your favorite

Hey there Hi there Ho there campers! It’s me your sub QM Brian! It was great to be back at Bull Feeney’s last night to help out with the Monday night quiz. We had a good group of contestants out last night and with Boston Red Sox tickets up for grabs I expected things to get a bit cray cray. Things started off for me with getting a bit of a hand with the audio visual system. Big shout out to Ben for making the trip down to make sure everything was running correctly. It was, so yeah Ben! Thanks for the help! The quiz started promptly at 7 and away we went! Maybe I’ll get better after I drink this was new in town and I’m

New Teams, Two Ties, and a rivalry for the ages!
SecondChild

Holy guacamole! You guys sure like keeping Yours Truly busy!    We had an exciting, face-paced and incredibly jumpin' night over at Bull Feeney's! Ten teams! One more and I would have been out of visual round clues - I'm going to have to start printing more.  Clearly, word of my hilarious puns and excellent taste in deep 90's cuts has gotten around, and Portland came out to play.  It's always a pleasure to see new faces, and so I gave a hearty Geeks Who Drink welcome to The Brewsual Suspects, Team FAM (BAM!), Meri, Off in the Woods, and Gene Belcher's Porsche Cayenne

   Ladies and gentlemen, what a fantastic night for a Pub Quiz it was here at Bull Feeney's!   Newcomers Did That Giraffe Have That Baby Yet? put in a strong first quiz, and regulars My Personal Favorites (who I admit, it just wouldn't be the same without) came within THREE POINTS of placing in the prize zone (I don't know where the Prize Zone is - adjacent to the Danger Zone? - but I want to be there) - so close!  Tryed for Poynting (the team of a million names, except recently they've been sticking to variants of this because reasons) came out of tonight with a nice

The Rivalry Returns!
SecondChild

Oh my! What an amazing, thrilling and hilarious night it was at Bull Feeney's!    To start with, we were packed, which is always nice. We had an extremely close competition with newcomers Jalapeno FACE! ALMOST placing in a prize position! Just three points shy!    Also, perennial favourites (hurr hurr) My Personal Favorites were in nearly last place throughout much of the (due to many of the other teams Jokering early) but rallied for an AMAZING comeback to hit 2nd place after a very impressive 8th round in which they jokered (yay for strategery!) to claim their

A Latin Professor Walks Into A Bar...
Brian

Greetings and welcome to the post quiz wrap up blog with me, your guest QM, Brian! Well, I made my way back to Bull Feeney’s last night to help out and much like a junior high science class with a substitute teacher during dissection week, shit got weird fast. Bull Feeney’s is one of those venues where the players are on all sides and in some cases behind you. I made sure to stay on my toes unless I was sitting down. Which was most of the time. So really, I just sat at attention.   Anyway… We had a small but mighty crowd, 6 teams to be exact. Beer and Vodka drinks were more than just a team name and partial

The fullest possible house without John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier...
SecondChild

   Wow! Talk about a full house!    We were absolutely slammin' tonight at Bull Feeney's - if another team had joined, I wouldn't have had enough visual round clues! Could be the warmer weather bringing the locals out, could be that people have heard about my unique combination of nerdy charm, bad jokes, pop culture references and eclectic musical choices.  Either way, and for whatever reason, we were AT CAPACITY tonight, and it was a LOT of fun!  I learned some things, including the fact that apparently nobody knows that Jesus was born in Bethlehem (despite the words of half of all Christmas carols saying exactly that)

Missed Connection: Dropping the Ball Like It's Hot
SecondChild

   For purposes of general comedy I shall conduct this blog post in the style of a Craigslist Missed Connections post:    You were the cute young lady with the radical, coloured hair who came in late and slipped out early, perhaps not knowing that you had come in 3rd.   I was the increasingly inebriated geek with the microphone, playing 90s alternative rock and asking people questions.  You came in and out of my life like a demon's whisper.  I had to give your rightful prize to another team.  Ok, enough of that - the real story of the night is that we had a team (Drop It Like It's Hot)

28 or 3 to What?
SecondChild

   Holy guacamole! What a battle! Well, I guess it wasn't a BATTLE so much as a VERY DRAMATIC AND CLOSE pub quiz!    It began as a night much like any other at Bull Feeney's - the regular crowd shuffled in (no, there was NOT an old man sitting next to me doing unspeakable things to his gin and tonic) as well as some newcomers. We saw the reigning champs, the deviously-named My Personal Favorites and the team formerly known as The Law Offices of Jaymes, Earl and Jones, now known hilariously as Personally, My Second Favorites, and several new teams, hungry for some of

I love how modest I am!  As per the ushjz (I can't say "usual", that's too boring), I was playing some killer tunage (maybe I should drop the ironic 90's affectation... nah) and getting mondo (ha!) compliments on some of the tracks I was kickin' out.  We saw longtime return players My Personal Favorites drop by and deal out their usual dollop of dominance. But ultimate victory was not to be theirs, this night.   We had some new
