Hello World!
Josh

Whats up guys, my name is Josh and somehow I've been named your regular Quizmaster at the State Street Bar Named Sue. Hopefully this week you were able to hear me a bit better than during my last session where I was super sick. Enough about me though, lets talk about the dramatic events of last night.  Just some things we learned last night, like the fact that Arizona steals a lot of its landmark names from neighboring states. A key moment in Homer's "The Odyssey" was a timely sneeze by Penelope's son. None of you guys know your former world leaders, and of course that the line "I like your kinky fuckery" was not in fact from the classic "Ulysses" but rather from the "50

WTB Sleep PST
Gar

I was so gotdang excited after quiz I couldn't sleep! Nothing like a high-octane battle of wits to overwhelm the senses. That and verbal sparring with some particularly sassy quizzers. And providing tutelage to the newest member of our quiz family, Quizmaster Josh! All these things combined to prevent deep REM sleep. As a result I feel insane. Like that one Star Trek episode, where only Deanna Troi can dream and everyone else loses their minds. Remember that? Quiz action was hot last night. Holding it down all night, Carla's Danger Zone! You better call Kenny Loggins because... you know. In second place,we had a tie betwixt Alternative

Despite the occasional run-on sentence, Gar is a dedicated Grammar Nazi. He's also a giant stickler for rules, mainly because his anxious disposition precludes from him convincingly pulling off any untoward behavior of his own.

A social recluse by day, the prospect of booze-fueled battles of wits compels him to leave the warm, comforting glow of his computer monitor each night for pub quiz.

Did we mention the cats?

Sports!
Gar

Now hear me out. I wasn't always a sports man. Until last year, I resented the very idea of competition. But that all changed during the 1st round of the NHL playoffs, when I decided the St. Louis Blues were my team. I've followed them ever since. I've surrendered all facets of personal identity. I now indentify solely as a Blues fan. It's strange to worship something that represents depression, but that seems to suit me fine. OK, enough of my insanity. The quiz! Last night was a hard fought battle, but L'Equipe won the day! Turns out that means team! I suppose I should've known that, what with my aforementioned affinity for ice hockey. Formidable! In

A Gar Named Blue
Gar

It was a hoot filling in at BNS State for a number of reasons, not the least of which was saving me from watching my dear, sweet St. Louis Blues fall to the Winnpeg Jets. Well, at least we are headed to the playoffs. And also, because y'all are a delight! Quiz action was hot, but Senator & Mrs. Palpatine told us all about the story of Darth Plagueis the Wise. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you, but is one that wins! Congrats! In second, whose name I FINALLY just got, Point O Fivers! More than 1 drink in Utah, enjoy jail! This law should be a boon for Uber and Lyft however. If we get Europe's 0.05 DUIs can we get Europe's

Wild Women and Twerk-aholics
Amanda

Well it was my last night hosting A Bar Named Sue and like most millennials I prefer the Irish Exit.  It has been fun and tonight was a great time.   It was a close call but Wild Women of the Wasatch killed their first quiz here.  However, it was very brave of the Twerkaholics Anonymous to come out and play tonight.  Honestly, I thought there would be more of you. Anyways, come and enjoy quiz the rest of your lives at a Bar Named Sue every Tuesday at 8pm.

Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium... Never Heard of It
Amanda

Great job everyone!  Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium took first place by one point.  Barely beating out Please Clap.  There were a couple teams that padded for the last place as they slowly disappeared throughout the night.  Shout out to you Classic Rick and Ryan Mess Around.  I see your New Girl reference, and I like it.  Anyways, see you all next week at 8pm for my last night at host here! Peace!

Who Named It Better?
Amanda

It seems like every week there is a new ridiculous thing that Trump or his team does, oh wait, that is reality.  Anyways, it creates some great team names over the same issue.  Tonight the team names were very close and obviously related to the camera tapping that is in every home with a microwave.  Obama, if you can hear me, save us!!!  The two team names were Microwave Cameras and Spycrowaving.  I think we all know who won the microwave name battle as well as the actual quiz.  Spycrowaving came in first with a two point difference.  They barely beat the consistently first place team the rest of the night, Our

Quizlamic State Conquers
Amanda

Although we did have a tiebreaker question, first place went to the Quizlamic State.  The tie came down to that longest word team and Clown Babies.  Although there was quite a lot of noise surrounding the booth you all persevered and I am very proud of all of you.   Come on back next Tuesday at 8pm!

Phat Tuesday (Get It)
Amanda

Oh, we did Johnny Cash Me Outside, How Bow Dah? and they got first place up against the return second place champion First Ammendment: Some Restrictions Apply.  Although there was a daring challenge tonight the two battled it out until Johnny won by a mere sixteen points.   Happy Fat Tuesday everyone, stay safe and warm out there and I will see you next week.

The Clown Babies Win It All
Amanda

Tonight was fun as there were so many teams fighting for first place.  But really, it came down to the main three.  CDL held down the third place position but they do get some brownie points for coming all the way from California just to play GWD.  Wait... maybe there was another reason... Oh well.  First place was taken by Clown Babies with an eleven point lead from Former National Security Advisors.  It was a fun night and as I left the rain had turned to snow so enjoy the warm weather next time it comes around.  Don't just sit inside watching netflix and doing puzzles

A Night to Remember
Amanda

Well, although it was only a few teams out here tonight it was truly a tight game.  And by a few I mean two teams.  You both really did have the same score except for two rounds and that was pretty impressive.  It was fun nevertheless and Happy Conception Day, November Babies ended up taking the lead leaving Damnit Sam in the dust with a mere five points.   Oh yeah, and happy valentines day!

I'm Your Quizmaster and Today is my Birthday
Amanda

Yes, it's true.  Today was my birthday.  It was fairly glorious, many important people knew and there was karaoke after GWD.  Of course there was a real rivalry happening and we even had to do a tiebreaker before finding out the winner.  It came down to I'm the Quizmaster and it's my Birthday and Scotty Flew to the Moon.  The tiebreaker was about the SSSR, obviously and how many medals they won in the olympics.  Surprisingly, it was I'm the Quizmaster and it's my birthday that came out on top.  I seriously had nothing to do with it.  Pure luck! Also, karaoke was magic.  Definitly

On The Last Day of January
Amanda

Well tonight was fairly uneventful.  There was some sort of yelling that I don't know why.  Excitement! Anyways tonight I was also terribly tired and Thom said it was his last night doing Karaoke.  What's up with that! Good luck out in the world this week people.  It came down to I'm Committing to the University of Drinking More Beer and Bert is Fat.  Degrading humor seems to be what is happening with Bert, but all bodies are beautiful...  See you all next week at 8pm!

Oh, It's Dirty Dancing
Amanda

Thanks to the three teams that came out tonight.  I get it, some people are still at home wallowing about the current affair of our politics and world.  Oh, how I wish I could also be in a permanent pity party but I guess instead I should go out and do things! Anyways... It was a pretty close game between well no one... There was actually a fairly large gap in there.  How Carlos Danger Got His Groove Back came in first place, proving just how much they got into the groove. In second place was The National Day of Patriotic Devotion.  And tieing down last place but getting quite a few bonus questions was Golden

Well tonight was another tribute to MLK by the MLK and Cookies winning by a landslide of two points.  In second place was Carlos Danger Zone.   Hope you all had a great three day weekend and continue to listen to and learn the fake bands that are on the television shows that you binge.   See you all next week at A Bar Named Sue at 8pm.

Dicks out for Tilikum
Amanda

RIP Tilikum, you lived your life to the fullest, maybe.  Isn't that what the drama is about?  Anyway I won't go on one side or the other but I will say watch Blackfish if you have not already. Tonight was a back and forth night, we never knew who would win.  Could it be Am I Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? or maybe Thanks Obama, no, it ended up being Bigly Deal.  This is their first win since I have been here and boy is that a triumph or what!! Keep it up and we may have coup on our hands.  Second place belonged to the tricky Lee Keebom who slid their way all
