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!

Venus, Ire, Books, and Fields. AND CHEWBACCA SINGING
The Jewish Viking

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! Nothing makes me appreciate the hard work Missy Elliott put into Get Ur Freak On than when it's sung by

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)
The Jewish Viking

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

Booze? Yes. Boos? No.
TanookiSuitandTie

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…

Ummm.... How do YOU eat Cheetos?????

So I guess hymens and epiglottis are NOT the same thing.  But I sure got everyone's attention at quiz tonight!  Which brings up the valid question... if your hymen is what's keeping the Cheetos from getting to your lungs... how do you eat Cheetos????  Ok, but enough about my sex life.   In homage to the 3rd round from tonight where all of the famous movie lines have been put through the Google Translate ringer, I now give you my above blog post as seen after being put through the Google Translate ringer...   I think the same can be white, and epiglottis.

What to Blog About????
"Other" Eric

     I was going to do a "Top Ten" for the blog. Then, I was going to write a song. Not a real song, just make up new lyrics to an old song. Maybe like, "Where the Sheep Have No Name" instead of "Where the Streets Have No Name" by U2. Then, I thought how stupid that was. Then, I read somewhere that I was supposed to be blogging about the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to me and I thought "Fuck that!"! I will never talk about that night with that goat....DAMMIT!!!!!! Congratulations to "RIP Bill Pullman" for being our Princesses of the Geek Universe tonight!

Not Tonight Dear, Eric Has a Headache
QM Rebecca

Eric wanted to be here with you all tonight, but he had a headache, so instead you got me!  Lucky people.  J We started the night with a round on famous French people.  After Pepe Le Pew I'm pretty much tapped out on my knowledge of French people, but you all seemed to do all right.  Next it was onto the audio round all about songs and artists that contain pet names.  However, there is only so much Justin Bieber "Baby" that I can stand.  Then we had a round on women in the justice system, but I bet the round that really stuck with you for the night was round four: a round on The Green Party, valley girls, and crotch infections.

Not the 1st Time Graig and I Were Satisfied in Front of Each Other
"Other" Eric

       So, it was the first time in front of you kids, but Graig and I got blowjobs tonight! TOGETHER! AT THE SAME TIME! I didn't even have to do a shot afterwords to clean my palate! Anywho... I don't know if you noticed tonight, but I have been playing a lot of Me First and the Gimme Gimmes lately. They're a cover band, but totally make almost every song better. Check them out if you get a chance. If not, I don't give a shit, it's not like I'm getting anything from it. Also, I get that some of our players might be a little young. Maybe even too young to know who the Swedish Chef is. It saddens me that you grew up in such a horrible time. I'm sickened by this.

See You Later Facebook
"Other" Eric

     I did something crazy today: I DEACTIVATED MY FACEBOOK!!!!!!!!!!! I have always enjoyed seeing my friends, their kids, what they are eating, the stupid things you guys post while you're pooping... Well, lately, it has become so negative. Not just the political landscape, but EVERYTHING! Facebook has become a place where instead of being able to post your opinions on your wall, you have to hide. You are not allowed to have opinions unless you want to go to battle for them.  Example: "I really did not like that last episode of "Insert Popular TV Show Here"". Comment 1: "Dude, what kind of crack are you smoking? "Insert Popular TV Show Here" is the best thing on tv and

Sticks and Stone and Duh and CLOSERS ONLY
The Jewish Viking

Oh Wednesday night, how I love thee. I love showing up to O'Niell's, looking at all the empty seats, thinking, "yup, they all hate me," and then watch as everyone flows in and prepares for quiz. I'd throw up a link to Sally Field saying, "You like me. You really like me." but I'm lazy and oh okay here it is. Down to quiz. We started simply with DUH! I feel like too many of you blew it on the Ebeneezer Scrooge being played by Scrooge McDuck, but c'est la vie. We jumped from there into our music round on sticks and stones and Vaseline by Stone Temple Pilots, which is known as Grease in Spanish-speaking nations.

The Night the Lights Went out in Georgia
"Other" Eric

     Why is it that most fans of football hate the Patriots? Is it because they cheat? Is it because Tom Brady can act like a little cry baby?  Do you think that it is funny that the "Patriots" and the "Cowboys - America's Team" are the two most hated teams in the NFL? Is it a microcosm of the world and how everyone hates America? "They're cocky." "They're jerks." "They're proponets of domestic violence." I think it's a pretty good representation ESPECIALLY now when you compare Trump to Goodell........ Think about it! I cannot believe the outcome....      Congratulations to "Loud Gibberish" for being our Princes of the Geek Universe tonight! "Classy

Okay, so 10 Year Old Batteries Don't Work Well
The Jewish Viking

Yes, I should have been suspicious that batteries that have an expiration date of 2011 may not be good enough for a wireless microphone, but I didn't notice they were that old until I took them out. And, my mic didn't do it's normal flashing red "these batteries suck and I'm going to die soon" light show. Assuming batteries have a shelf life of at least five years, those batteries are just as old as our Wednesday night quiz. Unlike my batteries though, the quiz wasn't crap: We started with a current events round, that thankfully had only one reference to the current presidential cabinet. I don't think I offended anyone with my term of endearment for the president, but if I did... don't
