What's In A Name
Uncle Bobo

I didn't have high hopes for tonight's quiz, what with the UMS festival happening just down the street on South Broadway, but you know what?  Great turn out tonight! I guess that my playing local music last week was enough of a show for the quizzers, because we had nary an empty seat in the house. Tonight saw some of my favorite team names of recent memory, too.  Big props to My Little Bodes, Cousins with Benefits, and all of the other clever teams tonight.

Here's To Pluto
Uncle Bobo

Pretty good odds tonight, pretty great teams, pretty pretty quizzers.  Pluto factored heavily in the team names tonight - gotta give a shout out to my favorite dwarf planet.  It was also local music night: we played Colorado bands only for the duration of the quiz, including Bolonium which you can find on iTunes.  They are pretty funny, and happened to be playing our humble little quiz this evening. I also found out that one of our quizzing regulars lives right behind the new house I will be moving into, so I imagine I will be drinking with the neighbors soon. Big thanks to Bob for once again covering my ass last week.  I was invited to judge a film contest,

Nearsighted
Bob with a J

There was a team who will remain nameless who did not approve of me altering their name in search of a joke. See, I don't have 20/20 vision, and many people's penmanship peaked around third grade, so sometimes I have trouble reading answer sheets. Yes, that can result in me mangling team names. But it's not fair that it only happened to you, so I present to you a list of ALL the teams last night, filtered through my poor eyes/brain:   Wobbly-tonsils I Like My Bees Like I Like My Volcanoes: Dramatic Middle-earthies Gozerian Radio Ladle Might Comcast Squad Kelsey Grammar The Lisa Frank Wangs Skinny

Step Up
Uncle Bobo

I could not stop yawning all day. I thought I was in for it when the clock struck 7 and it was quiz time, but as soon as I got on the mic, I was as awake as I've been all day.  Killer quiz tonight, even if it seems some teams started their Independence Day weekend a bit early.  I was super impressed by how you all did, especially with round 2 - BIG ups to The Wet Bandits for knowing not only each song and the original artists, but most of the bands covering those songs.  4 Score and 7 Beers Ago took the random bonus prize tonight. Have a safe and fun Independence Day.  Remember, no taxation without representation, or whatever.

A Beautiful Evening
Uncle Bobo

Just a few minutes before our quiz was scheduled to kick off, the sky opened up (again), dropping another round of hard and fast rain on our fair city.  But the sun was still shining, and there was an amazing rainbow all across the East.  Inside, I was jamming out Feeling Good by the late great Nina Simone and drinking some fine Rye Whiskey.  At that moment, there are very few things I could think of that would have made the moment even a little better. But as great as I was feeling then, it only got better once the quiz started.  We had several new teams tonight, which I always love.  New to Rooster & Moon is fun, but new to Geeks Who Drink is

On the Brain
Uncle Bobo

Maybe it's just me, but it seemed like the vast majority of our quizzers had "naughty" names tonight.  Now, we always have some teams with sex-names, but tonight it was a solid 80%.  Well, at least that is the way I read it.  I mean, our Champions, The Wet Bandits could be a reference to Home Alone, so maybe it's my mind that is dirty.  But our second place team called itself Thumper is my 8==D (and there were more = as the quiz went on), so I don't think I'm reading more into that than was intended. In any case, it was a great quiz, and never turned into the orgy I was half expecting with all of the obvious sexual

Poor Liam
Uncle Bobo

Pretty great night tonight, despite the rain (I know, RAIN in Colorado?! That almost never happens everyday this spring).  A fun mix of quizzers, with a bunch of movement in the standings and some pretty strong scores. My brilliant and very attractive quizzers crushed these questions, for the most part, even bringing the noise in the Beethoven round.  If there was a bit of a weak point in tonight's answer sheets, it would have been round three.  Where's the love for my main man Liam Neeson?  Come on, man!  Sure, we (mostly) knew that he brought the role of Oscar Schindler to life, taught Batman how to batman as Ras Al-Gul, and showed Obi-Wan the ways of the

I'm Home
Uncle Bobo

It feels good to be home.  And by home, I mean hosting the quiz at Rooster & Moon. No, I wasn't missing last week (although this blog post was).  I was here.  It's just that your humble QM Uncle Bobo is currently, well, I like to call it "Urban Camping".  So I apologize for the late post - my internet availability has been spotty.  But I'm back in front of the crowd, and hoping that the next quiz will be as much fun as the last. I must say, I was incredibly impressed by some of the new teams.  They have taken to Geeks Who Drink like a geek to a drink.  Maybe they're naturals.  In the end, though, some of our veteran quizzers defended

Cookin with Fire
Uncle Bobo

So here's the thing, quizzers of mine.  You may or may not know that your favorite Uncle Bobo is not the most tech savy individual out there.  Perhaps you noticed by my flip-phone (the best that 2008 had to offer).  Maybe you noticed because I fell behind in my blog duties.  The truth is, computers are black magic as far as I am concerned, and after over 5 years as your humble Quiz Master, I couldn't figure out how to do it on our new and improved system.  I think I got it, now.  If you're reading this, I'm cooking with fire! Mea fuckin' Culpa. Great quiz tonight!  Thank you all for coming down and quizzing what your mama gave you.  We

Cha Cha Cha Changes
Uncle Bobo

It's been a wild spring, y'all.  Pretty much every important part of my life has changed in some pretty significant ways.  But no matter what else I have going on, good or bad, I know I can count on coming down to Rooster & Moon on Thursday nights and seeing some awesome people. And I cannot tell you how much that means to me.  I sincerely want to thank all of you that take the time out of your week to come down, drink up, and quiz on.

Obvious anagram "Reince Priebus"
Bob with a J

Ok, maybe not an anagram exactly. But if you take all the vowels out, you do get RNC PR BS. Highly appropriate! I enjoyed all the actual anagrams, particularly Meek Hick Beau/Mike Huckabee. But seriously, fuck that guy. You did equally well on those anagrams and our Hot For Teacher round, averaging 6.4 points on each. Fun fact: my girlfriend was a teacher. She is also hot. COINCIDENCE? Hamm On Why? brought two things: their A-game and a double-sided picture of Jon Hamm. Both were enough to get them third place. Midwesties didn't bring any pictures, but they brought the power of politeness and cheese curds to claim second place. Peter Kriss Kross Crash Bandicoot sat on a wall. Peter

Surgical
Uncle Bobo

You know how much I love my Geeks?  Like, just so much, you guys.  I love my Geeks so much that I wouldn't let a little something like the surgery I had today keep me from coming down to host me some quiz. And some of our teams tonight were just as surgical in their execution as the doctor was today with his scalpal.  At first, I was curious why some teams that seemed to kill it in round two didn't use their Joker, but what the Hell do I know?  They used it well enough in round eight to hop-skip-jump into the winner's circle.  Well played, yo. See you all (and there were plenty of you) next week, hopefully with less stitches.

New Day
Uncle Bobo

In honor of New Coke, I spent the night overly sweet and less effective than I have previously been.  I just hope I didn't damage the brand too much.  What can I say, I have been a bit under the weather this week. So, whatever, let's blame my maybe-illness, and say that it is the reason that my tongue was tied and my patience was spent.  Although, to be fair, the ream I disqualified totally had it coming.  I mean, taking second place is fine and dandy, but if you do it with seven people at the table you just don't get a prize.

April "Showers"
Bob with a J

Spring has sprung? More like spring has, uh... snowed! Well, there goes my chance for a Pulitzer. But yes, thank you all for braving this spring storm to quiz with the crew at Rooster & Moon. Turns out coffee and booze is the perfect antidote for slush. Judging by your silence, you heard "Melissa McCarthy" and "sex tape" in the same sentence, and were immediately paralyzed. I assume you were all caught between the desire to google that shit immediately and the knowledge that having your phones out will get your rounds zeroed. You made the right decision. Average for round one? 7.9 points. I've had a handful of all-team perfect

Baseball Open-Eve
Uncle Bobo

The Colorado Rockies open their home season tomorrow, which is exciting for me, if not for most of the Geeks that came out tonight.  And they started their season on the road by sweeping the Brewers.  Which I am assuming you already know about, if you care.  Whatever, I'm saying that it has been a pretty good week! Tonight's quiz was just a cherry on top.  Strong teams that kept the competition close, good mix of questions, not too much back chatter. And the sun came back out today, which is just great. Yeah, pretty great week.  And this Saturday Rooster & Moon is hosting yet another installment of the Denver Comedy Co-Op's Stand Up Showcase.

Oh, The Humanity
Uncle Bobo

What a great night.  I was a bit nervous when 6:45 rolled around and saw so many open seats.  But I was worrying for nothing - the room was good and full by the time the first question dropped.  Too full, as it happened.  Denver Police had to stop by to escort a few gentlemen on to greener fields after they snuck in their own flask of vodka and spend all of round one yelling at me at the top of their lungs.  Sorry it had to go down like that, but delighted that so many people came out for the quiz with the last (hopefully) storm of the season dropping snow on our fair streets. Interesting quiz, too.  You all nailed the Haiku video game round.  Most
