Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

Everyone has seen or at least heard of the Karate Kid movies. Well I channelled my best Mr. Miyagi last night by training future Scoremistress Ashley.  In spite of the fact that she is a tad more photogenic than I am and warmed over my teams with her wit, I am not being replaced. He who trains his own replacement is only as good as the air he leaves behind. I told her, "First learn stand, then learn fly. Nature rule Ashley son...er...daughter. Not mine."  This means that even if she has to pass gas at the quiz, she must let it out slowly before she can let

Happy 420 Day! Make sure to eat your Weedies!
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

  With as many teams as we had last night, I would have expected more than just two with names that celebrated the holiday. The Devil's Lettuce and Everyone Feels the Bern on 4/20 were the only ones in the spirit of the season. As I was prepping for the quiz, I noticed an incredible amount of the aged scattered around Dublin's. I normally don't mind the elderly. I think everyone should own one. A group of old women complained that the music was too loud, even though I had it mostly in the background. I toned it down for the grandma bunch, but one elderly man gave me stank eye when

The Revenge of the Selfie Stick!
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

  I'm not usually a grump when it comes to modern technology. In fact, I embrace this age of tech with open arms. I really do love it, BUT I have to draw the line at the Selfie Stick. At least, I used to. I thought selfies were just a way to glorify oneself by posting countless ridiculous photos that no one wanted to see anyway. Seriously, lose the duckface. Last night our resident electronics whore and Scoremaster, Paul, introduced me to the world of the Selfie Stick. I still think it's weird, especially for a guy to have, but it did give a new perspective of the pictures

I named my gender neutral Easy Bake Oven, Caitlyn Jenner.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

  We had a whopping 16 teams last night! Bravo to all of you who came out to pay homage to the greatest Quizmaster in the land. Instead of throwing yourselves naked at my feet with your life savings, you did partake of the mental stimulation known in these here parts as Geeks Who Drink: Las Cruces version. I have to give props (what am I, 12?) to Scoremaster Paul. He kicked it into high gear with the team overload and came out swinging like a champ! Since I'm the new karaoke dude for Party Tenders right after Geeks, it's only natural that we join forces here too! If

Girl on girl back writing is my new favorite sport.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

  It's Holy Week and the end of Spring Break, so teams were still away on sabbatical or vacation. The last quiz before Easter and I have all my eggs in one basket, no matter what anyone says. The second place team, Frozen Chosen, cheered every time their name was called. It was a real cheer too. When they stopped, I gave them a hard time, so they were forced to continue. It just wasn't the same after that. The highlight of the evening had to be the team, Flobamas. I believe it was just a two female team, because that's all I saw. Maybe that's

You get a wish if you rub my shillelagh.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

  Well, Happy blah, blah, blah and all of that crap! I'm just a little upset that no one touched my shillelagh. It doesn't really grant wishes, unless you count mine. I'm also a little perturbed that there was only one team's name that had anything to do with St. Patrick's Day. Sham Rock Hard.  In my opinion, it's kind of a strange holiday to have surrounding a dude who drove a bunch of snakes out of Ireland. If he did that today in America, there would be no one running for president. I would like to thank Paul from Party Tenders for filling in as Scoremaster. He said he

I laughed so hard, a little Pu Pu Platter came out.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

It twas an interesting night. If you weren't there...we didn't really notice. For question 7 in Round 1, one team answered with Pu Pu Platter where they should have said Moo Shu Pork. If you want to know what the question was you should have been there! I didn't realize how funny Pu Pu Platter was until I read it as one of the "not right" answers. The weird thing was, mostly females laughed. I think you ladies are finally starting to come around to our sense of humor. Welcome! I was amazed at a social experiment being performed unintentionally, with the Round 3 Bonus question.

Rocky Mountain Dead by John Denver

  Oh, go ahead and boo the title of this blog! You're doing it while sporting a grin and you know it! The only reason I even mention the dear departed singer, is because one team couldn't stop using him for an answer. Now I have John Denver on the brain! Damn you! He was going to sing Ain't no Mountain High Enough, but then he realized that one was. Too soon? We had one person who frequents Las Cruces Geeks who actually made it to Geek Bowl in Denver this year. Yogesh walked away with a prize from

Morgan Freeman for Supreme Court Justice...or the Justice League.

One team wrote Morgan Freeman as being one of the longest tenured Supreme Court Justices. I actually think that's a great idea. No one will care if he's right for the job, but he could narrate every proceeding. His voice even makes me wet!  I have noticed a pattern with our winning teams. We have three teams in particular that seem to alternate winning each week. I don't want that to discourage any of the other teams. Feel free to choose my response that makes you feel the most comfortable: A.) Hey, don't worry. It's just a game and as long as you're having fun... B.) Get smarter

I believe that you shouldn't just pour out the goodies on one day, but then again that's why I'll be spending it by myself. *sniff*  I am totally cool with pity sex, by the way. What really is Valentines Day, but some people's idea of buying overpriced flowers and hoping to get some nook-nook in return.

As I was taking a pic of the not yet champs of the evening, Trumper Tantrum,  I noticed one of them was texting. She had her back to me, but it was like she wanted me to see, because she held her phone up. I almost took a picture of the text. Almost. Well, I did. No, I didn't.

  Normally I don't pay homage to entertainers who have passed, but these cases are very different. David Bowie may not have performed my favorite music, but he was a major innovator. Alan Rickman was simply a bad ass in every role he played. All Hail the Goblin King and Bowie Flex were the teams who remembered Bowie in different ways. One chose to remember the suckiest role he played, while the other chose to have some fun with his name. Ah, true fans. I hate to say it, but after I read question 8 in Round 4 about Mr.
