Some new sheet
Dom

Last night, NEW SCORE SHEETS!  Fancy huh? How did these come to our venue? Sit back and let Creepy Uncle Dom tell you a story.  Last week, due to my not paying attention, there were only 17 score sheets remaining in the "vault".  Luckily, with spring break, only 13 teams showed, leaving only 4 sheets.   I sent an email and was all "I'm in need of a fix over here. Send help!" "Help is on the way, just one question....." ...I forgot to answer the one question and I didn't get my score sheet smack fix soon enough. So Dom, in full 3rd person mode, had to scam 30 score sheets from the Living The Dream QM, how this was accomplished need

Bracket Fail in 3,2,1...
Dom

Checking out the play in games to the NCAA tourney and I don't know anything about any of the teams in my bracket.  As good a time as any to fill out my $20 bracket challenge.  Who need research and analysis?  I haven't needed either in my career, why would I for sports? ;)   West Virginia.  Book it!   Last night was a little incoherent, many of the rounds were meant to tie together, but after the QM messed up the ordering and some pronunciation, things came off the rails.  Luckily, DU is heading into spring break and there weren't as many teams to witness my floundering as usual.  Did I ruin the quiz? NO. But still, 3 weeks

lih-LEE-uh-woh-kah-LAH-nee
Dom

Pronounced : Leeluhwa*shit, hang-on*LeeWAH*guh*... That's the level of preparation you've come to expect from yours truely.  The worst part?  I lived in Hawaii for 6 months and still can't get through the names. Emphasis on 2 syllables in the same word, who does that?!?   Last night was a another huge showing. 21 teams started the night and, while only ~18 finished, it was still rocking until the very end.  So what did we learn? 1) Kangol is a very old hat brand. Kangol also isn't just a name, it's a mash up of (Knit)(ANGora)(woOL). 2) Ska is still dead. 3) General Motors is pulling out of Europe. Like your mom. 4)

Bellybutton Lent
Dom

Hooray Lent, no booze for me!  Yep, I grew up Catholic and still observe the traditions. No idea why, since I haven't been to church in over a decade, but old habits are hard to break.     Bill Paxton died this week from heart surgery complications. Very sad, but he left us a great catalog of movies and characters to remember him.  We had an entire round on it and you forget all the movies he's been a part of, not to mention TV shows.  Remember Big Love?  First season was non-stop sex and nudity, then nothing...cult politics and

TSwift or the Field
Dom

The GWD Taylor Swift fetish continues...hooray!  #Ducks   Last night was a huge quiz for the Pioneer. I know I've said that in the past, but we broke the standing record last night at 21 teams.  The venue was packed and much fun was had. I'd like to think it was all me, but let's be honest, National Margarita Day did more for attendance than my old-ass ever could. :) Topics last night were refreshingly varied and academic, which should have worked out well for all the law students and teachers, but it turns out "bar people" don't really "study".  I didn't.  FYI: studying at the bar" is equally ineffective.   Of a possible 96: Average

CH??????
Dom

Hey folks, I forgot to write a blog today, so with 20 minutes to spare, here I am!  I had a job interview today, I think it went well, but you never can tell with IT positions. They had a ping pong table and free cereal, so that's something.   Ok, last night was a pretty interesting quiz and we learned some things. First, people don't really like QR Codes. I tried (and failed) to launch my "pre register you team name" Google form, but people just don't like scanning QR Codes. So much so, in fact, they don't even have an app installed to read them.  Science, ammirite? Second, people can't properly spell "Chile".  Some examples: -Chilly -Chillie -Chily -Chili -Chelli ..and

No Visual is good Visual
Dom

Holy Cow you guys. We ran out of visual rounds and I printed 18 of them, that's a new high team count for me. 19!  Ok, it doesn't sound like much, but that means our venue just keeps picking up steam. Pretty soon...I don't know what happens next...but whatever it is, bigness!   First, you'll notice by the team names, people are not happy with the first 3 weeks of the Trump Empire. Yes, they're vulgar and full of anger. No, I can't just change them to make it all PC.  Contact your congress person, seriously.   Highlights of the night were  1) Rounds on Amsterdam, Science, and Geico 2) 2 very drunkish dudes yelling

John Wick 2 -- now playing!
Dom

Why does my picture count never match my team count?  Is it the drinking or are you guys just sneaking out?  I call them ghost teams, they pad my stats and help the other teams win stuff. Thanks I guess!   Last night we had a couple different things, first was (as the title suggests) a John Wick 2 promo from Lionsgate. Some lovely ladies were there rep-ing the film and handing out posters and tickets. Hope you got one, looks like a fun ride if you like "Good Hair and Revenge"...i'm sure that's the by-line. As for the quiz, there was one round we need to talk about.  Combine an NFL team name with a clue to make a "team-like" name.  St.

I got a Q
Dom

You ever get so absorbed in your day job that you forget to do your night job?  It happened to yours truly all morning, which means I was coding. Yes, I'm a software guy, no I don't sit in the dark all day and talk Star Trek (that dude sits across the hall...because of course it's a dude).   Last night we learned a few things.   --Methaqualone doesn't start with Q.   --Jeeps aren't named for Italian Rivers.  --People out in The West don't know much about NYC --GWD has some crafty writers.  Ask a question about India and give anything with "Bengal" in it. #SuckerBet --Patriots are 15-3 against the

Please visit our sponsor!
Dom

#BigQuiz. Last night folks, last night. 18 teams, top 7 all within 9 points!  Top 2 had to duke it out for first after a tie.  That's how you bring it!  Good work! A new feature from last night, new free beer tokens.  We've finally moved away from John Dicker's business cards (circa 2012) and I've created a new *free beer* flier.  That means no hoarding, no duplicating, and no more confusion...plus John won't get drunk dialed at his office.  Surely appreciated. #StopIt   Also last night, a sponsor: www.GoPuff.com. They came out to support quiz and hand out some swag.

Poeple read this??

Tonight I learned that people actually read this!  EPIC again, well done (and thank you)! The theme for this blog:  Things that "Female fans of My Little Pony" are not called 1) Whores (dude...) 2) Equastrias (points for creativity) 3) Pownies  4) Honys (not bad) 5) Bronies (that's the other ones) 6) Equestrieases 7) Pony Biznitches 8) Ponyelles 9) Bra-wnies (lol) ...feel free to use any of these *wrong* answers as names for Bowling Teams, Personalized License Plates, Fake IDs(?), Grindr Aliases (you know who you are).... Quote of the night: "Do you know this?" "No" "F**K"   Winners

Old Men Manage
Dom

Wow, this is late...to many things going on, my bad.   Last night was a snowy night, but we still managed 11(?) teams.  A few regulars, a few white IPAs, a few tacos, and we were all set!  Speaking of snow, a few people needed a cold shower last night, we had full 1/2 boob cleavage, and a 3-way in the works right next to my DJ booth.  Serious, 1/2 boob cleavage. Epic.  COME ON DOWN NEXT WEEK, YOU NEVER KNOW!!   Results: 1) LTL : a team of relative newcomers that walked away with a solid win, and some bar cred 2) Anal about my Oral exams:  See?? Horny people everywhere. This team was just one dude! 3)

Margot...Robbie...Doesn't ring a bell...
Dom

#SaidNoOneRecently Tonight was a nice chill quiz with most people slowly recovering from family, booze, turkey, and wrapping paper fumes.  Glad those that dared came out, because it was BIG POINTS night!   Nasty, Beerish, and Short (80% sure they're not talking about me) scored a 90!  Nice work, peepes!  We were also match makers tonight, 2 tables that had nothing in common came together (not that way) and created a super team!  They managed 5th....so... It wasn't all roses, this week both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds died. Mom and daughter gone in a 28 period. Sucky.  RIP both.   That's all for tonight, thanks

Citizen Kane's Ho (ho)
Dom

Last night was huge. Straight up. Huge.  17 teams, full on anarchy.  Ok, it was just a quiz, but it was damn fun!   What did we learn? 1)  Just because you're on YouTube doesn't make you famous.  Or good.  Looking at you Apologetix 2)  Home on the Range is surprisingly racist.  Guess the boy scouts don't sing that verse. 3)  Honey Boo Boos real name is ...who cares 4)  "Memory is greatest curse that's ever been inflicted on the human race"... um, no.  It's kept our species alive.   And there was a bunch of other stuff too, but for the most part, it was just good

Math isn't like, facts, man
Dom

Tonight was a solid showing for quiz!  We had BBs, presidents, math, and a wonder debate on if ZERO is a whole number.  >:-|     Funny thing about "facts", the debate is pretty minimal, which is how that "debate" ended up.  NOPE, it's a real number.  And yes, ZERO is a valid value, it's the mathematical representation of "null" or "nothing", you kinda need that.   Enough of that....   "When have I ever taken on 6 guys at one time??"  -- random quote taken out of context. Love doing that.   What did we learn tonight? 1)  Work problems are more fun to non-engineer types. 2)

Damn right that's Darth Vader on my X-mas sweater. It's from Target...and awesome.  Tonight was Pearl Harbor, Mac and Cheese and 8-bit holiday tunes.  I offered them to anyone with a USB drive, apparently normal people don't carry those?  The Hell?   What did we learn tonight: 1) Casserole -- French for Lutheran :) 2) This guy in the sweatshirt has been trying to close a software sales deal for 3 hours.  Ain't happening man. 3) Hey look, Tay-Tay is back with Geeks.  #TayTay 4) Ohms, Volts, Flux, Inductance, Watts -- all units that don't measure current in a circuit.  V=IR 5) America
