Fernando is my hero!
QM Rebecca

So Eric is out of town on "business" this week, so I totally said I would help him out and cover tonight.  Life however came around and said "Not so fast, Rebecca.  I'm gonna kick your ass with a stupid cold!  Let's see you host quiz like this!  (Insert villain laugh here.)  I quickly went to my fellow Quizmasters to see if someone could cover for me, but alas, none could do it.  I would have to power through, but what of my quickly fading voice??? Never fear!  Fernando to the rescue!  He took over all of the microphone duties for the evening and allowed me to work in blissful silence doing the scoring and pictures.  Woo hoo!  Thank you Fernando!

I Was Having Contractions Tonight
"Other" Eric

      I came to a realization this weekend. I mean, I know where farts come from and how they are produced, butt, I really think I got the WHY this weekend!!!  Well, farts are contractions for your food baby! I mean, you can totally judge how soon you have to go by how close the "contractions" are. How strong the "contractions" are. You can totally tell when the water breaks. And then when you have the big D, no contractions. Actually, those are usually after... ok, maybe I am wrong...       Congratulations to "The Buzzy Lip Experience" for being our Princesses and Princes of the Geek Universe tonight!

Quizzing For That Cause
The Jewish Viking

The cause last night was Planned Parenthood and what a worthy cause it was. Last time we got this much money it was for an animal rescue organization and I had to play Sarah McLachlan. Last night? I just said the name. You know what great work they do. You know why they're important. Glad to see (most) of you step up and donate to an organization that helps so, so many. How much? $282.59! Thanks to all of you (but less so that person who gave my 59 cents in pennies). As for quiz, we started with our round on dress-up. From hats to heels, with some briefs in-between it wasn't nearly as creepy as Teddy Ruxpin. SERIOUSLY Our

Easter at O'Niell's

      It has been a great while since we got to do a quiz on Easter Sunday. Two years ago, they shut down to strip the floors. Last year, just closed. This year, HOORAY!  Just let us have this 2ish hours away from our loved ones so we can have a little break, please! I don't know your "WHY" to come to quiz every week. I mean, I fucking love you for it for sure, but your "WHY" is for you. My "WHY"??? I get to scold people. I get to make you laugh. YOU BUY ME BEER!!!! I mean, why wouldn't I want to be here??? Well, to show my appreciation tonight, I got you kids some candy. I hope you enjoy. Don't choke on the Peeps my peeps...      Congratulations

We'll Start Off With an Announcement
The Jewish Viking

  Next week we're doing a Quiz For a Cause to raise money for Planned Parenthood! So bring cash money! (Or don't be a giant jerk). What a quiz last night - sure, my voice sounded like I've been gargling with Tom Waits ashtray, but come one, I couldn't go a week more without hosting for you lovely people. We started with a round on identifying states based off of two things that are great and one that sucks. I think we all agreed on most of the items listed. I don't think that anyone complained about Kid Rock, Rick Perry or Deep Dish Pizza sucking. Then we moved onto our music round featuring all sorts of cover songs. I

No Pepsi for Me....
"Other" Eric

      I'm still trying to figure out what "Academic Daddy Issues" was thinking tonight with the NCAAP. Is that the group that protects college athletes of color?  It sure wasn't the correct answer. Maybe March Madness got to you. Maybe you picked 'Nova like I did and lost my money opening weekend? Maybe you drank too many Pepsi's and think protests are a litteral day in the park holding hands with armed police offers and kicking back sugary drinks? Well, Graig marked you wrong and I support his decision.      Better luck next time!      Congratulations to "There are no Walmarts in Syria, Only Targets" for being our Princesses

Pink Pandas
"Other" Eric

     Sometimes, you just have a day where there is nothing but pink pandas. Wait. You don't know what the pink panda is? Well, see, there are pandas all around us!  Green ones are cool. Blue ones are hippie-ish, so some are cool and others smell like patchouli and are kind of gross. Pink. Well, pink are the assholes. They come into your establishment after you close and expect you to serve them booze. They argue with you for no reason. They make lists in their heads to make you feel inferior.  Then, you get to your limit and you just have to say "Fuck you Pink Panda". Today is the day my friends, so if you think your pink, fuck you!      Congratulations

Classy As Pics!
"Other" Eric

     Crazy night in Quizville if I do say so myself, and it all revolves around pictures. To start the night, we had two fine young gentlemen at the end of the bar.  They weren't looking at me, but you could see it in their eyes they were going to fuck this up for everyone. Sure enough! Read question one and the guy yells out the answer.  I tell them thanks, and that's not what we are doing here. It was also the last 5 minutes of what I had been saying about don't shout out answers nor fuck it up for the people who are here and enjoying quiz. Well, after that, the dude in the Jonathan Stewart jersey (Jonathan Stewart, need I say more???) started taking pics of

Reunited, and It Feels So Good
QM Rebecca

Moving aside so Fernando could come home was bitter-sweet.  I'm sure you all missed Fernando and were glad to see him come home, but now I sure do miss you guys!  I'm so glad Eric asked me to cover for him tonight so I can visit with you all for the night.  Also a real treat for me to get to hang out with Fernando!  Win-win! We started the night off with a risky round on definitions and gambling.  Next was a horrifying round of a cappella covers.  Round 3 was a super tasty round on food, travel and culture in 'Murica.  Then it was "TYME" for a round on Y's as vowels.  The visual round was the Best. Round. Ever. especially if you love penguins

Which Doctor Takes My PP......OH?
"Other" Eric

     So of all the doctors in tonights round 5, who would you want to work on you? I mean, one guy was originally a veterinarian, so unless I had some kennel cough, fuck that guy.  A couple of them are going to be deported under the new law, so I might as well not even get my hopes up. One eats brains, so no thanks to that!     What does that leave us? Some Scrubs crying over some good-looking doctor guy while searching if they're out there on the final frontier????????  You know I have to go with Wesley's mom!!!!!! And yes, it's because I was 11-ish and she was the 2nd best thing on that ship (Riker, DUH!!!!)      Congratulations

It's an 80's Round! Except it's Not!
The Jewish Viking

I wouldn't go so far as to say I trolled you guys with our music round last night, but let's just say that some in the crowd were less than enthused to here we had a whole round on modern songs. I mean, I totally would have been one of the grumblers too, but I also appreciate a good messing with the crowd. As for the rest of quiz, you had not just me and Fernando, but also visiting Denver Quizmaster Jeff, who joined us to give you the best of Wednesday quizzing to you. Let's dive in. Beyond our not quite 80's round (hat tip to Tronicbox's rad remixes), we had a round on trees, and a round on gold and silver. If you've ever

Invoking Emotion....It's What We Do
"Other" Eric

     I love our quiz. I say that not because in a few short months it will be 5 YEARS doing this, but I still love playing. I love hanging out with you and teaming up to cream the competition. But what I really love? It's when we have rounds that push the limit. Example? Tonight's round about current cabinet positions. Why does it push the limit?      It's technically about Trump, so whether you love him or hate him, you automatically invoke emotion. How can I put this for you to understand?  "That girl over there has a tramp stamp". It could be a Gauguin, a fucking masterpiece! But because of it's location, you automatically assume the worst...yup!

Oh, what an fun an exciting Wednesday we had! Fernando was back, in the position he was born for: to my left, feeding me jokes so I can look impressive. Don't worry, we didn't kill Rebecca, she just picked up a new Tuesday quiz, so had I had to let my baby bird fly. As for the quiz itself? Let's look! We started with a round on venue. I got so say probe and insinuate Fernando is into probe porn. Always a fun time when I get to do that. Our music round was one of the best in a long time - it had Chewbacca! Singing!

What's Ashley's Favorite Movie?
"Other" Eric

     I never TRY to listen into your conversations while quiz is going on, but sometimes, you guys are just a little too loud. For example, tonight The O.G.s were having a not so heated debate about the deadlift and the snatch. Ashley was very adament about her "beliefs" of the snatch. That the team members should trust her because of her extensive knowledge of the snatch.     Now, I could have written this like the 12 year old that I am, but I am going to take the high road here: It is clearly due to Ashley's extensive knowledge of the Brad Pitt movie "Snatch". OF COURSE she knows all about Mickey the pikey, Cousin Avi, Franky 4 fingers, the fucking dog...yeah,

Quizzing for Carrie (Tingley Hospital Foundation)

After a whirlwind few weeks and about 24 hours from my Geek Bowl weekend (next year - Boston - plan for it!), it was great to be back at O'Niell's hosting quiz. It was even better that it was a Quiz for a Cause to help raise funds for Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation. Thea from the foundation was on hand with tons of prizes, including some mud volleyball hats (sign up now!) and enough squishy stars to help the most stressed among us lower their blood pressure just a bit. We had a great quiz with current events, a music round that featured Christopher Cross and led me to play nothing but yacht rock all night, some car corrections, Kangol hats (I

Hey there, O'Niells! It's me, Quizmaster Graig! You may remember me as the guy who sits to Other Eric’s left (see also the guy who gets systemically booed at week after week after week after week… It’s still *SO* hilarious, I can't contain myself). But now it's my turn to host because Mr. Brower is currently in the Great Pacific Northwest, doing Geek Bowl related activities. Joining and aiding me ever so kindly is the fantastic Quizmaster Ian! We had a grand old time up there hosting for you all. What's more, I didn't get booed! The generators of America's funniest joke were also in Seattle, so it was boo-free all night. Thank God…
