No, trivia can not wait till next week.
Major Tom

I like basketball. I really do. I went to the U of A and I played in the pep band. We went to the Tournament games and I went to the home games even after I graduated. My dad and my uncles and I would go to a regional every year. We filled out brackets at work at several jobs the I had over the years and gambled real money on it. I partied my ass off on 4th Avenue when the Cats won the championship in 1997. I'm quite a bit less into it these days, but I still get the excitement when it's time for March Madness. I brought one of my Quizzers, Colin a copy of the Tucson Citizen from that championship last night because I had an extra and I'm cleaning out my

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Cats and dogs living together! Mass hysteria!
Major Tom

Last night was completely out of control. First of all, we had a metric ton of teams who showed up for Quiz. A bunch of teams were first timers who needed to be reassured that it would not be difficult to pick up on how to play. "How much does it cost? Free. But it says here $5 per person. That's for themed Quizzes. This is just a normal Quiz. How do I sign up? You don't. Just take one of those, one of those, and a pencil, and you're good. How does it work? I'll explain it on the mic when we get started. Where do I... I'll explain everything on the mic when we get started. You get the idea.

I turned into a Martian. Whoa-oh-oh.
Major Tom

Last night there was a question about the Misfits. I find that amazing. Generally, as a fan of punk and heavy metal, I just assume that no one else knows anything about the music that I care about. In fact, a lot of the time, the music I like is ridiculed by people. It makes me very happy when I find that that is not always the case. Not only did someone on the editorial staff think enough of the Misfits to include them in the Quiz, but a whole lot of you guys got the answer right. That makes me happy. On Wednesday, there was an entire audio round of cover tunes by the Suburban Legends. The Suburban Legends are a ska band that my band played several shows with. One of my

Major Tom

You're all missing Geek Bowl right now. I kept announcing it when tickets were going on sale, but none of you went. Once again, as far as I know, the only representation at Geek Bowl that Tucson has is the infamous Jeff the Chemist. Geek Bowl is a huge thing. Geeks Who Drink rents out a huge room, like the civic center of whatever city it's in that year, and they run the world's largest Quiz night, with teams from all over the country and huge cash prizes. It's a vacation weekend in where you can meet all kinds of fellow geeks from everywhere. So this year, Geek Bowl is in Seattle. What a city Seattle is!

Saddle up, Geeks!
Major Tom

Tucson is an interesting place. I mean, I suppose you could say that about most places, if you knew the quirky things that go one there. But there are some seriously different things here. One of those things is the celebration of holidays in February. Monday was Presidents' Day, in which we remember those presidents who did good things for our country, you know, rather than dismantle the entire thing. It's not a holiday that everyone gets, like Christmas, but government employees, bankers, and students nationwide get the day off. Except for teachers and students here. We don't get Presidents' Day off. Why? Because at the end of the same week is Rodeo Days. Thursday and Friday are days off

D.B.A.D.
Major Tom

I grew up in a church-going family. Not like a crazy religious, conservative Republican family. Just a church-going family. Over time, I decided that I didn't want to go to church with my family any more. Mostly, I wanted to not get up early on Sunday mornings, but also, I just didn't like it. I still went on Christmas Eve because I was there with them, and that's what they did on Christmas Eve. The thing is, Christmas Eve is my birthday, so it became annoying to me that I had to go to church on my birthday. After a while, I decided that they could go without me. The more I learned about history and science, the less I believed what I had been taught as a kid, and the more I saw the bad things

Sorry I was late.
Major Tom

Parent-teacher conferences. Twice a year, I have to stay at work until minutes before I have to leave to get to Quiz at my east side venue. It never fails that I make a point of leaving immediately after finishing Quiz so that I can get home and write the Blog, because I won't have time between day job and night job to do it. It also never fails that I fall asleep when I get home before I do the Blog. So, as usual, I'm sitting here hoping no parents show up so that I can get this thing written in time for me to post it before Quiz tonight. Shit. Hold on a second... OK I'm back. Seriously, what kind of parent comes to parent conferences when their kid has a B in the class?

Don't be that guy.

There's always gotta be that guy. Everywhere you go, that guy is there. The one that just doesn't care. They don't care what the rest of us are doing. They don't care about the rules of common decency. Denis Leary immortalized that guy in his song "Asshole" when he sang "I use public toilets and I piss on the seat. I go around all summer saying 'how about this heat?'" That guy did n't bother to lock the teacher restroom this week at my school, and I don't even want to tell you what we found in there after the kids discovered the door unlocked. That guy lives at my complex and never cleans up after his dog. That guy posted what happened to Han Solo on Facebook immediately after seeing the Episode

Who would have thought?
Major Tom

Last night was my first Quiz as Quizmaster for a little while. Obviously, I lost a venue this month, so Thursday is my only Quiz night. But last week was the Gilmore Girls Quiz, and I was not the Quizmaster for that one. That was a very strange thing. We Quizmasters have an ongoing joke that the next themed Quiz will be Love Actually. Of course it won't be, but the joke keeps coming up. So they announced that the next Quiz would be Gilmore Girls, and I thought it was a joke. The guy in charge of themed Quizzes asked for recommendations for a name for the Quiz. "BLANK: A Gilmore Girls Quiz" is the usual format. I suggested "Might As Well Be Love Actually: A Gilmore Girls Quiz". I thought it

Tucson Was Very Off-ui!
Natasha Noir

I learned that Tucson folks are very fond of the Gilmore Girls. I also learned that when Tucson folks are in to something, they want to prove it by crowding in to a local pub to answer questions about it. I kinda like that about us. I'm sure The Canyon's Crown Restaurant and Pub likes it too since we flooded their place with eager quizzers this evening. The race was on! Teams were hopping all over the score board but in the end only one victor can emerge and carry the cold hard cash out the door. That team was In Omnia Paratus, we didn't have any snowfall but it was their lucky day. Coming in second by four points was Bad Girls Always

Paying bills is a good thing to do.
Major Tom

So, as you guys all know, I have been the Quizmaster at two clubs for the last five years. Soon after getting the gig at the Canyon's Crown, I was given the QM slot at the Auld Dubliner on University as an emergency replacement for the QM who had been fired. The two venues were very different, but I loved them both. Well, it turns out that the deadbeat owner at the Dub was not paying any of his bills, and the day after Quiz there last week, the power was shut off, and the Dub was repossessed. Many many Quizmasters have lost a venue, but usually they are made aware of it in advance. Usually it's a venue that hasn't caught on, and the management decides they don't want to pay for Quiz any more.

Candy is supposed to be sweet!
Major Tom

America is a melting pot of all kinds of different cultures. This, on the whole, is a good thing, despite what our President-elect and the millions of people who voted for him would have you believe. One of the great things about having people of different cultures living here is the many kinds of delicious foods that we have available to us. Here's the thing, though. There are some things that certain people just get totally wrong. My example is that Mexicans do not understand candy. Candy is supposed to be sweet. Chile powder is not candy. Mexicans do not understand this. So last night, a table had a bright red cup of goo on their table. When I came over to take their team picture, I was

I pride myself on a few things. One of them is my badass immune system. Years of teaching and being around filthy disease bags (you know them as children) has given me a pretty hardcore immunity to just about everything. Unfortunately, one got past the goalie this week, and I am pretty darn sick right now. One of the other things I pride myself on is my ability to get through things even when I'm sick, and most people won't even realize that I'm not feeling well. That's what happened last night at Quiz. I felt really quite awful last night, but I don't think any of you noticed. You probably also didn't notice that I went back into the kitchen and licked the rims of all the glasses. Hey, if

Fantastic Deaths And Where To Find Them
Major Tom

Last night's Round Seven gave us clips from people who the editors apparently wish death upon. I'm pretty sure that Adam Sandler was a joke. He's annoying and not funny (except in "Happy Gilmore"), but wishing he was dead? I doubt it. Anyway, there has been some talk about hw brutal that round was. People seem to think it's wrong to wish death on people. I, for one, do not wish death on Roger Goodell or Paula Deen. Not even Bill Cosby. That man made me laugh so hard for years. Say what you want about him, he enriched a lot of our lives for a long time. The clip included in the round was from his dentists routine on one of the first cassette tapes I ever owned.
