Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at Natty Greene's in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Ointment is a weird word.

There are few things that can get a quiz crowd at Natty’s riled up, and the one that never fails to bring people to a fever pitch is a good old-fashioned DANCE BATTLE to settle the final scores. Not to be topped by any of the previous dance battles, our two competing teams brought “it” to the floor and tried to “serve” each other in the danciest of ways.

For the record, I’m still not sure what the “it” they brought to the floor was. But it was something.

We had a representative from the two teams that tied - Bocephus and Monkey Flu - come up to compete for the top prize. As for the song they had to dance to, the ONLY one that was worthy is the classic Ginuwine jam, “Pony”.

Next to the dance floor area, there was a rack of pool cues for the nearby pool tables. Of course this meant each of the dancers felt it was imperative that they use a cue to properly convey the dance they were going for. 

The gentleman from Monkey Flu grabbed the cue and proceeded to ride it like the aforementioned Pony. As for Bocephus, the lady who volunteered to dance used a cue as an impromptu stripper pole. Because Ginuwine.

In the end, Bocephus’ moves were too hot to handle, and they won via crowd vote. It just goes to show you, your inner thought of “when in doubt, make something a stripper pole” will work most of the time. ESPECIALLY to win a bar gift card.

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- Bottle Caps are delicious. The candy, not the actual bottle tops.

- Someone thought “Zagnut” was a real thing referring to galaxies.

- Tupac and Bieber both lived at the same time because the universe has a funny sense of humor.

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at Natty Greene's in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Ointment is a weird word.

Tonight’s Round 3 featured a subject our quizzers either knew pretty well or not at all - Major League Baseball teams. Many of you lamented at the thought of having to wring your brain for any drop of sportsballs knowledge, and I just think you need better preparation for next time. 

But before we worry about identifying current professional team names, let me take you back to the beginning. Back to a time when the word “baseball” wasn’t even close to what people called it. This is the 100% true* history of how baseball was created.

It all started with cavemen. Often very territorial, cavemen would resort to throwing rocks at rival clans to repel attacks on their…caves. This strategy works for hundreds of thousands of years.

As the brain evolved and matured, so did the strategies of the cavemen. The attacking clans would bring sticks with them to try and hit the thrown rocks back at the defenders. Those that were successful in hitting the rocks claimed victory.

Over time, more and more rocks were thrown, and many of those were hit away by sticks. Soon, a man’s worth to his clan was determined by how far he could hit the rocks away from his group. It was often said that if a man could hit the rock far enough, he and his tribe could run home to safety - hence the term “home run”.

Tribal conflicts have changed over time, too, and as societies have gotten more or less civil, their attitudes toward “stickrock” have shifted to a more recreational one. They maintained the usage of sticks and rocks, but have adopted other equipment as time went on.

First, the players noticed when they tried to catch the rock with their hands, it hurt. A lot. Cuts and gashes would mar their hands, so they developed gloves to better cushion the blow of the rocks.

Players also got stronger, and started hitting the rock further. This required more men to stand out in the field (“outfield”. Get it?!?) to catch the rocks. However, sometimes they would have to stare into the sun to track where the rock was, and this resulted in many rocks smashing into dude’s faces. It was at this time that the brimmed cap was created to better shield the sun and catch the rocks before they hit someone in the face.

Finally, after realizing how many players were getting decimated by being hit with rocks every time they played stickrock, some guy said, “How about we sew some leather around a rubber core? My mom has a sewing machine, and this wouldn’t hurt nearly as bad as those fucking rocks.” Thus, the ball to be used for baseball was born.

The more you know…*shooting star*

*more like 0% true. Whatever.

——————————

Despite sitting at the worst table (for audio) in the room, Lasagna for One reclaimed the first place victory that had been eluding them since they won a few months ago. A mere five points separated them from Mission of Myanmar, who locked down a second place finish. Great job, teams.

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- Another team tempted fate by naming themselves “My Couch Pulls Out But I Don’t” thus stoking the ire of the Quizmaster. Hence why I changed their team name to If Ebola and ISIS Had a Baby, That Would Be Us. We’re Terrible People. Do better next time.

- Run-DMC nor Digital Underground sang the “Super Bowl Shuffle”.

- One group believed The Abyss and Titanic were autobiographical movies from James Cameron.

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at Natty Greene's in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Ointment is a weird word.

For over a decade, we’ve seen scores of movies and TV shows inspired by comic books, and the raging tide of material won’t subside anytime soon. Some are fantastic (Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), some are alright (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Thor), and some are flat-out dogshit (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Heroes after season 2).

So it pains me to check out the latest foray into source material bastardization - Gotham, a TV crime serial featuring younger versions of all the characters you know and love from the Batman series. This makes perfect sense because when I watch anything with Batman in it, you know what I’m really thinking? “Man, this is really action-packed and interesting, but it’d be a lot better if they were 20 years younger.”

Ben McKenzie (O.C., Southland) stars as a young James Gordon, a by-the-books detective who will stop at nothing to nab his culprit. His grizzled, alcoholic partner Harvey Bullock - played by Donal Logue (Terriers, Blade) - is clearly a pawn in the Gotham’s crime underworld, but is called on by his duty to the force to do the right thing and solve their latest high-profile case: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne.

Sounds like a pretty decent premise, right? Well, it’s at that point the show gets markedly worse. 

The first egregious mistake they made is the Waynes were murdered in front of Bruce as they were walking out of a movie, and not the opera like we’re used to seeing. Because, as super wealthy people are wont to do, they are dressed in their finest clothes - suits, fur, and pearls - to go to the movies, and they are robbed of their valuables on their way out.

Look, Waynes, you went to the shittiest part of town dressed to the nines to see a movie - which couldn’t be ANYTHING but a $1.50 theater because you’re in the middle of an urban dumpster fire - and you were shocked to get robbed? Even Warren Buffett wears a South Park t-shirt with BBQ stains on it and sweatpants to the movies because it’s not worth the attention. Sadly, you both learned your lesson too late.

From there the show lost me. Then came in the eye-rollingly obvious references to villains’ future selves. Oswald Cobblepot is called “Penguin” as he’s mercilessly beating up someone who looks EXACTLY like Katt Williams (seriously, check it out at the 15:00 minute mark), and our intrepid detectives visit a suspect’s home where his daughter, Ivy, answers the door. GET IT, BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO BE THE PENGUIN AND POISON IVY LATER ON. What deft use of subtle foreshadowing.

Who am I kidding though? I’m probably going to keep watching the show. At the very least, it’s not as bad as Batman & Robin, and that’s something we can all sleep better knowing.

—————————

First and second places were separated by only ONE POINT, and Zealand won the uncontested first place honors. However, there was a three-way tie for second place, and what better way to settle the score than a good old-fashioned dance battle? Burning the Competition Like the Chicago Center! and Charlotte’s 17th Mayor This Month brought some sweet moves to the dance floor, but none were sweeter than those from the serpentine dancing wonder hailing from Pocket Full of Pepto who sealed up the silver medal spot for his team. Well done, everyone.

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- When most people heard “Unmarried and childless” American artist, they (incorrectly) guessed Georgia O’Keefe.

- It could be argued that Ryan Dunn shoved a car up his ass twice.

- Yet another team learned the consequences of choosing a verboten team name. Check your pull-out couches and ramrods at the door.

- Kind of ironic the question asking about anti-vomiting medicine came before the one with KFC, McDonald’s, and Pizza Hut as answers.
