Peyton Can't Dab
McFly

We talked about it. He can't dab for many reasons. Reason 1? The obvious one, HE'S TOO OLD. Duh. Second? His neck. You gotta lean in for those dabs. He has a bad neck, as well all know too well. He wouldn't last a minute trying to dab. Not to mention, I guarantee that Peyton doesn't know what dabbing is! He is out of the circuit. He is old news! Cam Newton is the dabbing king. Too bad this Superb Owl is not a dance competition of sorts, because Cam would easily sweep the first place prize. In football, you gotta throw the ball and catch the ball… or something. Not going to lie. I don't really care about the Super Bowl like I used to. Sure, it's a gathering of sorts and it

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future. It isn't my real last name, but a lot of people think it is. As much as it appears that I spend a lot of time in front of a boxy controller or joystick, I do enjoy the outdoors, as well.

Who trademarks their own phrases??
McFly

Well, we can definitely tell you who. When I saw Donald Trump was on the list for our round 7 last night, I would have guessed the phrase he chose was "You're Fired" and not "Make America Great Again" (…I could go off on a tirade about him, but I will hold off and stick to the trademarks). He is someone I expect to trademark their phrase because people love the poop he shits out and he loves to think that he is a self made man. The one I am seriously baffled by is "Smeyes" from Tyra Banks. Yeah, I get it. It's a cute phrase that makes sense in the modeling world (among some others), but no educated person would want to actually use the word to profit off of it. Would there be some sort

It's Oscar time… right?
McFly

At least it is time to start watching Oscar movies. We have heard all of the complaints, but have we heard the top picks for movies? The only buzz I am hearing is how hard Leonardo has been working to earn that Best Actor Oscar. I have yet to see The Revenant, but I cannot wait to catch it. I love Tom Hardy and I have heard it is way better than the previews look. I'm kind of worried I won't like it, though. I have been liking most of everything I have seen this year. After having the round 3 of Best Picture Nominees, I have only seen 2 thus far. I liked Mad Max and Spotlight a lot, but I have a feeling that I haven't seen the winner yet. My money is on The Big Short or The Revenant…

Dance Magic Dance
McFly

Today, we celebrate those celebrities we lost this week. Okay, I'll rephrase that. Let's celebrate David Bowie and Alan Rickman. It's time we embrace their lives and move on from mourning. It's such a shame both of their deaths snuck up on us, but now is the time to watch their movies, listen to their albums and embrace their art. The first two I want to start with? Being a movie person: Labyrinth and Galaxy Quest. Nothing gets me more in the mood than hearing Bowie's bulge in his pants sing Dance Magic Dance. I also love the sarcasm and dead pan humor of the cynic Dr. Lazarus. If you haven't seen either of those (which it appears there were many of you tonight who have not), I'd suggest starting

People + Rebus = Hilarity
McFly

I loved round 4 last night. In case you forgot, it was the round on People Rebus. I loved it mostly because I could see all of your brain's trying to churn out a decent answer. The result of which were half assed hilarious answers. I think for Benedict Cumberbatch, I had people just trying to name handsome British guys. It was one of the more long winded questions of the night. Fun, none the less. Speaking of how things went last night and blogging, I was talking with one of the teams about my blogging and how I don't really mention what happens the night of trivia. They mentioned "I wonder if he would mention such and such in his blog" but I never do. I guess I just have so much

A night of Indiana Jones and Star Warses
McFly

Although Thursday was the big event, we made last night about Indiana Jones. Why? I'm not sure, as I am not one of the writers, but I DO know that Steven Speilberg's 69th birthday is today, which validates that enough for me. The connection I am going to make from all of this is: Steven and George Lucas worked on the Indiana Jones franchise together. So it only makes sense that we come full circle to The Force Awakens. I've loved the positive energy that everyone has been putting into this new project. I have not seen anyone complain or gripe about it at all. Quite the opposite. People are LOVING this movie. That excites me, because I hardly ever get excited over movies. Well, not like I used

It's lovely weather for enjoying the outdoors with you!
McFly

Yeah, totally yanked the lyrics from Sleigh Ride, courtesy of last night's round 7. I know it was a difficult round, but I always mention how I love tough rounds. They are never REALLY EASY for one team. I have yet to experience a team who can destroy a round that devastates other teams. Yes, the average was a 1.8 out of 15 teams. And yes, the high score was a 3, but did you hear all the cheering from teams who got one of them correct?! It was like a damn reward just being able to decipher ONE of them. Plus it's a game of inches. Every inch counts in the scheme of things. But BACK TO THE WEATHER! How about that weather? I didn't even wear a jacket most of yesterday. Good times. I

Why you shouldn't go Paleo.
McFly

Listen: I'm a vegetarian. I've been one for a while. I was the OG of the weird ass diets that people make fun of. The street cred coming off my diet is UNSEEN. It's really not that big of a deal anymore, and that's cool. I'm mostly joking when I talk about how hip and cool I am with my dietary restrictions. I did pick being a vegetarian as a preference, as I just didn't like the idea or taste of meat (when I was a wee-Benji). Why go Paleo? I've seen people eat on a Paleo diet, and it doesn't seem that bad… but just a tad pretentious. The idea that your diet consists of what cave men could collect and kill seems a bit regressive (because it is). I take pride in my snobbery in neglecting

Nobody wants to go to Kokomo
McFly

As someone who lived adjacent to Indiana and whose father's family is mostly comprised of Hoosiers, there isn't much to see in that state. Not to mention Kokomo. I've driven past Kokomo, but never actually bothered to stay and check it out. I am going to guess it is like pretty much all of the other small cities. I can accurately remember a lot of my childhood experiences in small town Indiana. My dad grew up in an amazingly small area called Sullivan. Every time we went to Sullivan, we had nothing to do there. I can't believe people grow up in those sorts of environments, but then again I know they exist and love their small town life. My favorite memory of small town Indiana was in Terre

There can only be one Deion Sanders.
McFly

I'm not even a Cowboys fan. I don't usually get all up in arms about great athletes, but there was something special about Deion Sanders. He was Bo Jackson with longevity. Since he was a bit of a boastful player, he never stood out as well as Bo's legacy. Maybe he does, I don't know. If you take a second to think about how Deion played in both a World Series and The Super Bowl. The world series runs into October (obviously) and he had to be ready for both a weekly NFL game and the World Series. He played really well in the 1992 world series, too. Not to mention 2 Super Bowl championships. If you were to ask someone: What position did Deion Sanders play? you would get multiple responses. He

Let's talk about Golden Grahams.
McFly

Golden Grahams are one of those cereals that has been around since I can remember. It is never anyone's "favorite" cereal, though. It isn't Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Rice Krispies or anything. It always just lingered around. I remember, as a child, cereal was the most important meal of the day. I usually had it twice. Breakfast and late night snack. Now, I never considered it a staple in my household, but it always found its way into my cabinets. I was one of those kids who would eat anything, if it were cereal. You don't have enough for a bowl? Mix as many varieties as you want. The common threat of sugar coated carbs meant everything paired well together. It surprises me that the cereal managed

beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, MOBY DICK!
McFly

Only speaking in jest to the fact that the Geeks who Drink quizzes lately have had a trend where one movie answer has repeated itself throughout the quiz. On Tuesday, it was Mad Max: Fury Road and a few weeks ago it was Dude! Where's my car? Was it done on purpose? Maybe. Should people freak out about it? No. Should Beetlejuice have been an answer three times last night? YES! I mean, it is the perfect movie to choose for this simple fact. Also because it's a very well done movie. I threw Moby Dick there at the end of my title, because it sounds funny. But while we are on the topic of Beetlejuice, I am extremely nervous and unsure of the new Beetlejuice movie they have in production (allegedly).

You guys don't know BOOKS!
McFly

This is the first time ever that I had zero teams to turn in the "Sooner" portion on last night's round 3. The craziest part is that I anticipate a LOT of you turning it in. Not that I knew all of those answers necessarily, but I figured YOU guys would. Plus, I have been doing a lot of Sooner/Later rounds and the past 5 times or so, it was an over whelming majority for the former. I was largely disappointed, also, that many of you missed my favorite author ever! Kurt Vonnegut isn't exactly widely known or celebrated in schools much. The only book he really got into schools was Slaughterhouse Five, which, of course, is now on the banned book list. If you get a chance, I say you dive into that

John Oliver's coming for YOU!
McFly

If you haven't watched John Oliver, he is OUT to remind everyone how awful people can be in the world. Last night, he didn't take any prisoners. We had our entire round 4 dedicated to John Oliver. If you haven't been watching his magic unfold in the past two years, he posts his large segments to YouTube for your viewing pleasure. GET ON IT! I have watched every episode about 2 times a piece. All of the segments are well researched and are hilariously written. Give it a shot. From last night's round 4, I would highly suggest the episode featuring Dr. Oz and how his show is pushing for over the counter drugs that promise to be wonder drugs. A very eye-opening experience to behold. The Daily

More Cluedo than YOU CAN HANDLE!
McFly

I have blogged about this before, but nothing gets me randier than the board game Clue. I ranted about the movie before, but this is more deeply rooted in my love for the game. Since I was young, I have owned many iterations of the game. The OG Clue. Clue Jr. Clue Simpsons. Clue the PC game. Clue for SNES. Clue the VCR game (although I have never had anyone play with me… but I still own it! Any takers?!). I seriously love Clue. There is something satisfying about solving a murder mystery. Maybe it's just the clever play of the game, but there is so much to love about it. When I was a kid, I wrote stories of MY OWN Colonel Mustard killing Ms. Peacock in the study. God, that was satisfying.

Yes. Indeed, tomorrow morning, I will be floating through space. The best part of it all? I don't have to go to work. Tomorrow is one of those days where I totally expect to be distracted and ready for anything. I made it well known that I am headed to Ohio tomorrow to play some ultimate frisbee. Yes, this may sound minuscule and unimportant, but I am going to see some of my best friends to play the game that I love. If you don't know about Toledo, Ohio, there is one thing you should know today: Their football team (Division 1) is having one of the best seasons of their life. They beat Arkansas (SEC!!) and Iowa State (Big 12!!) which means, we are pretty much the cat's pajama's. It's cool
