Can I please have my pencils back?
QM Rebecca

Another great night at O'Niell's Pub.  We had 18 rockin' teams fighting it out for Geek Glory.  But before I re-cap the night's events, can I just say… can you guys please give me my pencils back?!?!?  Seriously!  Did you see the picture of how many pencils I had at the end of the night?  I had like 6!  I even made a "Have You Seen Me?" sign in the hopes that some of my pencils will eventually find their way home again.  I mean, I know you all love me and want to take home a reminder of our night together, but sheesh! Our first round on puns weren't actually funny, the answers just had the letters P-U-N in them.  The first audio round

The Quiz, From Your View...
"Other" Eric

     So, let's look at the quiz from your view. I took a bunch of pictures from several of the team's POV and one from QM Graig's big melon. I love quiz. No. Really.  Before I was ever hired I played 2 or 3 times a week. I always would strive to come up with a funny team name to make the other teams laugh. More important, I would try to put a funny answer if I had no clue. Last night, it looks like you guys took a break on the funny team names, but at least got me lauging with your wrong answers.  You thought Candice Bergen was Niel Patrick Harris (with more thought and listening to the clip a couple more times...ok). You thought Excalibur was the Singing Sword.

Juniors, Chemicals, Wests, and Mystery!
The Jewish Viking

It was a grab bag of the quizzical at O'Niell's last night. As we've been apt to do every Wednesday since 2007 we had a quiz filled with everything and anything and a crowd who had their heart set on winning. Well, for some it was just not getting last place, but that's close enough for me. We started with our junior round which was pretty straightforward. We found out Rebecca has a giant ol' crush on Robert Downy Jr, but I don't think that's outside the norm of most of society, so I can't really make fun of her for that. Instead let's go to round 2, where we had you name artists and the chemical symbols made from the first letter of the artist name. It was pretty easy for most. Cheers

Just For QM Drew...

     The night was one of adventure at O'Niell's! We were quizzing for a cause! We were visited by Quizmasters of New Mexico past (and Florida current)! And we held a real life trial for a witch! OK...OK... Only two of those are true. We QFAC'ed for the Graduate Student Social Work Association @ NMSUABQ. They came out in drones to raise money for a great cause. Over $200 in total! Hooray!      Former NM QM Drew (and now current Flo-rida QM) was in town visiting old friends and hung out with us.

SO MANY QUIZMASTERS!
The Jewish Viking

That's right kids. It wasn't just Rebecca and myself last night. We were also joined by fresh meat newbie, Jessica. Like so many before her, it was my goal to train her and her goal not to frustrate me with disappointment. It's a tough task as I'm disappointed by everything in life, as I'm sure your aware. I'm like Marvin, the Paranoid Android only more nebbishy with my proud Jewish heritage. It was all okay though because we had a great quiz! It started with recently in stuff. Luckily I didn't ask any questions on Aleppo, which our former Governor would have not gotten any points on. Our questions last night were simpler, like wondering why anyone still listens to Lena Dunham

      Time flies when you are having fun... and also when your scorekeeper does all the work for you! Not only did Adam grade all the sheets, he input all the data in the scoresheet! I went around and got your pictures early (and half naked *eye wink to that one team) and also got a total head start on writing this blog!     Hooray!!!!      You guys had some pretty awesome team names tonight too! I like the "Christopher Reeve/Walken" name and Adam's favorite was "The Girls of AlbuKakke" (Who also made quite the comeback to get third. We tried out a new round 3 style on you tonight and had 2 teams score an 8, so maybe

Rebecca Did SUCH a Good Job!
The Jewish Viking

If you're going to stand in front of our table and literally talk down to your quizmaster, at least try not to pander to them like a toddler that learned to throw something in the trash can for the first time. That was our dear Rebecca last night. Congratulations Rebecca, you got the same compliment I give my dog when he obeys a command. It was definitively a fun night of quiz - and it was made better by Momma and Papa Jewish Viking in attendance. They've been watching me host for 9 years and have seen my rise as a Quiz hosting legend and my fall to a bitter curmudgeonly old man "ain't got time" for your shenanigans. I'm sure it was thrilling for them. I'll be sure to share the action

The Answers You All Know

     It was like old times tonight! Some former employees of O'Niell's stopped by to say hello and it was totally a blast from the past!  Glad to see you are all doing well and thanks for not being strangers!      As for the quiz, I'm pretty sure we were all still hung over from the Harry Potter quiz last night! We had it right here at O'Niell's and this place was filled to the Sorting Hat! We even have figured out how to wire for sound next door at Rob's Place, so we were able to accomodate more quizzlings. The scores were pretty fair for the most part. You are all welcome for the Transformer/Gay Porn questions. Four easy questions since

Expecto Quiztronum!

 WOW! What a great turn-out for our Harry Potter Quiz! We had 67 teams (and had to turn away about 50 people at the door. Sorry witches and wizards! We ran out of tables and chairs! Wah wah wahhh...) and a ton of costumed folks classing up the place. I saw many Harrys, a Moaning Myrtle complete with toilet lid (please tell me it was new?), a snitch, the fourth Doctor Who?, and several teams that had custom shirts! We had a lot of fun and we hope you did too! First place went to team: The Badass Mugglefuckers, who took home a cool $500 in cash! Second place went to team: The Golden Snatches, who received $250 for their hard work, and third place: Feeling Around for Hedwig's Package,

Something About My Mother?
The Jewish Viking

Yeah. I replaced the word "men" with "mom" in a certain team name last night. With my family visiting next week, can you tell what's on my mind? Besides that Freudian slip, it was only quiz. We started with a pretty easy rhyming round one. It eased everyone into quiz and then we unleashed round tow, which featured double the artists to identify. That one proved a little harder for some of you, including iTunes, which I then blamed on QM Rebecca, who had been using my computer to charge her iphone. Round 3 was all about eww of false. Farting in jar didn't cure the bubonic plague, but man that's a fun gift for the whole family. And, as I pointed out last night, if Shia LaBeouf

     OK, I haven't really taken the time to write about the Olympics yet, so here we go! While I feel I am a patriot, sometimes it bugs me that all I care about is the medal count. Do you feel this too? We qualified for a majority of the events (where you at men's soccer????) and most everyone who qualified has been doing their events all of their lives with high paid coaches. Shit, the NBA guys probably make more in a week than some nations' GNPs... but what I'm getting down to and what I truly love are the stories of the people who really don't have anything else.

In Which Rebecca Likes Ike and Hates Pronouncing Scheherazade
The Jewish Viking

Ah, Wednesday nights. Beer, Food, Quiz, and a heckuva lot of shenanigans. We started with our Eisenhower round. Everyone thought the first question was sooo easy. So easy until you realized that there was a fair number of teaks that didn't know Ike was his nickname. Also, the continental divide is way more exciting as you drive through the Eisenhower tunnel. I passed the continental divide in NM while on my way to Arizona this past weekend. It looks a lot like the desert around Grants. Our music round featured eight songs but only four titles. It was rough, as some of you put the wrong titles down twice. Also, Jill Sobule will forever be the the girl I associate with kissing

The Most Important....

      I was going to write an important blog tonight about how asparagus has an impact on our lives. A detailed piece describing the actual studies and how many people DO NOT have it effect the smell of their urine or how some people cannot smell if their urine has been impacted. The blog was going to be educational and attention grabbing. But as I read over the quiz again, and since I am still 12 years old, I decided to write about your favorite body part instead: The Red Anal Organ.     Just like asparagus, some people cannot smell their red anal organ and others cannot smell other peoples' red anal organ.

Quizzing on a School Night
QM Rebecca

So if you've read my profile, you will know that I am a teacher, and you may even know that Thursday is my first day back with students.  Now, most teachers are going to be at home getting sleep or writing those last minute lesson plans… but not me!  I was quizzing it up with the best of them at Oniells Nob Hill with Eric as my scorekeeper (aka: partner in crime).   We started the night with our recently in stuff round, which lets face it, is pretty much a round on how we are killing it in the Rio Olympics (especially swimming!).  We also learned that Michael Phelps uses an alternative medicine technique called "cupping", which leads to the question

How about the team remembering from last week that I barfed up SoCo, so they bought us shots?  How about "Red Dawn"?      I got it!  How about the amazing tie-breaker we had to have tonight? We did a best 3 out of 5 of Ro Sham Bo to break 2nd from 3rd and quite honestly, one of the most fun outcomes for a tie-break! On the first pass, all six competitors threw scissors.

There is nothing like a great quiz to make your Wednesday that much better. I hope that's how you felt, because Rebecca and I were on point with providing you the best quiz in the world, with the perfect amount of snark to make sure you don't like us that much. We started the night with our answer sandwich round. Yes, it involved pay close attention the word I spoke, but even if you didn't ever figure out how it worked, the questions weren't too bad. I mean, in the 80's there's a really high chance any award handed out by MTV went to Madonna. Our music round songs, good and bad, definitely being made worse as punk and nu-metal covers.
