Barrio Speedwagon is new favorite team name
Adam Jarmon Brown

Once more into the breach dear friends! Eric the Jewish Viking was too busy adulting at his new house this week, so he asked me to step in and sub Quizmaster for him. And despite some technical difficulties we got the quiz on like gang busters. And holy crap were there a whole bunch of you last night! 35 teams materialized out of the ether (or parking lot) to compete for the little green cards that you can spend like real money at O’Niell’s. 35 freaking teams! Fernando had his score keeping work cut out for him and I had a whole bunch of people to read questions to. And read questions I did! Our themes last night were 1.

Chemobrain Warriors!
"Other" Eric

Tonight, we celebrated the quiz by raising some money for charity! Over $300 was raised to help in the research and treatment of "Chemobrain".  I usually don't write too much personal stuff here (except when I say I love you, cause that is straight from my heart!), but in February, my father-in-law was diagnosed with stomach cancer. When they went in to see how far it had spread, it was already outside of his stomach. They went straight to chemo. He has his final treatment in the next 2 weeks and the cancer has gotten smaller (thank goodness), but we have noticed that, especially right after the treatments, he is quite fried.  He has a difficult time finding words and remembering.

Dearest Quizzers, Oh How I’ve Missed You
Adam Jarmon Brown

  I’ve been homeless. I don’t mean I don’t have a home to live in. I, in fact, have a pretty swanky apartment that I wound up with when Quizmaster Kent moved to Denver. (NAME CHECK!) When I say homeless I mean I don’t have a regular quiz of my own and haven’t since April. I’ve subbed quite a bit for folks like I did tonight for Eric the Jewish Viking, who is busy buying a house or some such bullshit. So huzzah for him.   Or is that mazel tov? I don’t know jewish idioms.   But it was nice to be back in the saddle and help a brother

This is Alarming!
"Other" Eric

     Well, not to alarm anyone, but in the midst of trying to find the table for me to set up my gear, our lovely waitress and Manager Rosie went out the wrong door and set off the fire alarm!  The most interesting part: NOBODY MOVED! NOBODY FLINCHED! NOBODY EVEN BATTED AN EYE! Like the fire alarm goes off and "Oh, Fuck it. I'm gonna die with a great beer in front of me"!      You guys are the worst class of students with fire alarms. I think next week we should have fire drill! We will meet out front by the flag pole.   Fernando will take roll call. I will go back in and chug some Crown Royal.... The quiz kicked off with

Hearing 200 People Shout Out "Balls" Without Prompting Is Magic
The Jewish Viking

And I suppose at an all Archer themed quiz is where that's destined to happen. We packed every last seat (including some swiped from Gioco) at O'Niell's last night with one goal in mind: Bear Claws. Wait, I mean, Archer. If you had any doubt what the masses are doing in Albuquerque when not playing Geeks Who Drink, we know for certain their watching Archer over and over again. Because not only did we have 50 teams, we had fifty really good teams. There were some really high scores on this. You all aren't just fans, you're super fans, including all those fancy folk who dressed up and our very own Quizmasters Jessi and Fernando. I guess I'm more of a "bah humbug" than

Banjo Playing My Song...POOP!!!!!
"Other" Eric

      Nothing like showing up early to your venue to find the guys from Deliverance still plucking the banjo and scaring the crap out of you before you host quiz!  Other than that, what a great night we had at the beautiful O'Niell's!      The quiz started with a round on boxes and things you put in them ("What's in the box?!?!?!), the auto audio round, 50/50 on new slang terms, almost paradise and the visual pitch monkey! The back side of quiz gave us a milk-tastic round you could write in your journal, the celebrities who can read audio round and Random Knowledge taught us about aliens from movies, you still hate sports questions and Brazil

Don't Stop, Unless It's Singing Along to Journey
The Jewish Viking

I get it, I know that song, too. And I love that song, too. Hell, I've seen Journey at the pavilion - and I willing paid for my tickets. But man... 33 teams all trying to sing along with Don't Stop Believing at the same time? No. Just no. It wasn't the right time for all of to share a moment.   So I rained on your parade. Like I probably rained on your parade when I asked you about rocky vs gas planets in our solar system. Someone even came up to me and asked about it. My reply, "Is Pluto a planet?" Sorry, pedants, but science says no. And guess what, I believe science more than drunk guy at O'Niell's at 10pm.   And, just so you're aware, Walloons

Records Abound!
"Other" Eric

      In a night of record-breaking events, quiz was just as amazing at O'Niell's!!! While we did not score any hat tricks in 15 minutes, win our third World Cup or get revenge that has been heavy on our minds the last 4 years, we had guys getting pumped for Jeff Mangum, women yelling out "Glee" and lots of chuckles over our round on where you had to change one initial. We had a tie-break for third. The returning champs came in fourth. We had people guess "The Jeffersons" for a Sesame Street clip (not one or two teams...TOO MANY OF YOU!!!!). Cats do not kill Vietnamese people. I could not find a stat on feral cats in Vietnam, but found a tasty recipe that they

Recently In Quizmasters!

I had a fantastic time training newbie Quizmaster, Kristin. She's gonna be our newest host in Flagstaff, AZ so look her quiz up if you're ever out there for... whatever reasons would take you to Flagstaff.   As for quiz, we started off with our current events round, where I'm pretty sure I made someone pee her pants (just a little bit) over the news of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Sadly, no one peed themselves over things that Antonin Scalia said. It was mostly retinas detaching from eyes rolling so far back into skulls.   Our music round featured the fantastic song I'm on a Boat. Fun fact, my wife played that song over and over again when we

Celebrate Your Freedoms!!!

     Well, it was a great night of quiz and a great time to celebrate that the Supreme Court finally got one right. I don't like to get political, but the bigoted Red Vines tonight were amazingly fresh!  Wait, you only had Skittles. That's what you get for only choosing one side. Also, when I say the Whoppers are for me and Fernando...DON'T TOUCH MY FUCKING WHOPPERS!     Ok, so now marriage is just going to be called marriage, since everyone can do it, we don't need labels anymore.

There Is No Fake Bjork, Only the Mythical Being Bjork
The Jewish Viking

Like unicorns, manticores, and the southern hospitality, Bjork doesn't truly exist, at least not the flesh and blood human being we think she is. Rather, Bjork is some sort of Icelandic myth, a whimsical siren of the northern lands to serenade us all with her elfin like charm.   So really, is Fake Bjork the real Bjork or is all Bjork the fake Bjork because Bjork doesn't really exist except in fables and fairytale? Heavy shit, right? Oh, and if you think I'm full of bullshit, listen to Gling-Gló. It's like listening to a fantastical world of faeries and elves and dwarven kings.   Back in reality, it was a packed house and a great quiz, completed

The Hours of Power!
"Other" Eric

      It was like 2 rounds of the Power Hour tonight at Geeks Who Drink! I wish! Wait, No. I'm good. We used to play that when I was much dumber and younger. Then, we figured getting blitzed in an hour was not enough for us...so we turned it into the Century Club. 100 shots of beer in 100 minutes. Then, because we are competitive assholes, it turned into "How Many Shots of Beer Can You Drink Before You Pass Out?". I did have the record of our friends with 127. I did pass out. I did foam at the mouth.  My friends put a Bud Light 12 pack box under my face, so I wouldn't get the carpet dirty. Nice guys...      Quiz kicked off with a rhyming answer

Casa De Quiz
The Jewish Viking

What an awesome Quiz For a Cause last night!   I could wax on about bagpiping or how Fernando's JJ Walker is well, DY-NO-MITE! but let's dive into the real heart of the matter. The money raised for Casa De Salud was over $400! HOLY CRAP THAT'S AWESOME YOU GUYS.   We didn't get wild enough to get any promises that we can play with their new EKG machine, but with the money we raised they are one step closer to telling Fernando and I to stop touching it because it's expensive. We get told that a lot.   Thanks to everyone who donated. To those that didn't? You're a monster.

You Can't Be Depressed When There's Quiz
The Jewish Viking

That's a scientific fact, backed by science and all the booze we consumed last night at O'Niell's.   We started with a round where every answer contained s, a, and d. If you were clueless about Mongo in Blazing Saddles then you need to shut down everything else in your life right now and go watch it. Also, if you ever get to go to JPL, it's pretty friggin' rad.   Our music round was all about songs where the solos are the same as the vocal melody. Way to not even try, The Beatles. I expected that from Pitbull and Richard Marx, but you guys? Also, I love that we were able to combine Richard Marx and Pitbull into one round, like the worst mixtape ever.   After
