Not so long ago, I was on a team playing quiz and we ruled the school. My personal areas of expertise were both audio rounds, anything involving movies, and American history. One night, I was the only guy in the bar who knew the name of the current prime minister of England.

We placed first almost every week. So often that it became stale and I needed a new challenge. So instead of angering fellow geeks by besting them, I decided I would anger them by doing the asking. So I became a quizmaster and I've been pissing them off ever since.  

Quiz is a sundae. Banana, three scoops, whipped cream, the whole nine. The cherry on top of that sundae? Karaoke. I’m currently listening to someone absolutely kill Eve 6’s “Inside Out”. Up next, my buddy Sarah is going to serenade us with “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman)”. After that, I’m going to eviscerate everyone with my rendition of “Lawyers, Guns, and Money”. The shit has indeed hit the fan. But for now, I’m one of those losers on his laptop in the middle of a bar.

The More We Know:

  • Whoopi Goldberg’s first name does not feature an “e”. She’s a woman, not a cushion, people.
  • Shirley Jones is David Cassidy’s stepmom, which gives me an amazing idea for a Partridge Family reality show reboot.
  • “Tod” means “fox” in Scotland. “Jared” means “fox” worldwide. Ladies…

Best Worst Answers:

  • So, we had a Lenny Kravitz song in round two that multiple people wrote down as Jimi Hendrix. Flash forward to round six when I ask for the quizzical title of Jimi Hendrix’s debut album and someone writes down “Are You Gonna Go My Way?” They’re black. They play guitar. The similarities end there, guys. Come on.
  • You know, there was a time when someone would say “vampire novelist” and everyone would go, “Oh, Anne Rice!” I saw far too many “Stephanie Meyers” tonight. Let’s work on that.
  • The real answer was “Nightcrawler”, but one team wrote “A Lesbian Elf #Hottie.” If a hashtag is ever part of an answer, I’ll strangle myself with the mic cord. Once again, let’s work on this, people.

Team Name Hall of Fame:

  • Team DumbassNot In Last Place has finally been unseated in the most accurate name contest.
  • Jeff Goldblu-Me-Last-Night – Oof, if only…
  • What Is…Mocha Dick? – Any team that can find a way to make me say “Mocha Dick” every week is a team after my own heart. Also, “Mocha Dick” is my nickname at the Starbucks on my block.

See you next Wednesday!

Oh my goodness gracious, what a night. We had the World Series going on three TVs, then we had a lovely gentleman from San Francisco, and myself from Kansas. Well…he had a San Francisco hat on, who knows where the hell he was from. Anyway, we held our breath for that last hit of the night. When it was caught, he cheered and I made everyone feel bad because I’m sure Paul Rudd was crying somewhere.

I’m supposed to recap ballgames on this blog, right? No? Oh, okay. Apologies. Quiz was really great too! A team named Jared was really strong out of the gate (for a one-person team), but they were no match for a team of sorta-not Canadians and, of course, the never in last place Not In Last Place.

The More We Know:

  • “Moby Dick” was actually based on a real whale named Mocha Dick, which is the most fun thing in the world to say. Try it right now. At work. Or hanging out with your grandparents.
  • Festivalofthedead.com is a Web site hosted by the town of Salem, Mass. It’s nice that they can have a little fun with their history of religious persecution and death.
  • Latrobe, Penn is home to Rolling Rock beer and was actually named after one of the architects of the U.S. Capitol building. He worked alongside H.W. Heineken.

Best Worst Answers:

  • One team had the absolute gall to call Patrick Swayze “some douche.” To be fair, I don’t think they knew who the fuck they were dealing with.
  • If you don’t know the name of a Soviet-born skating champ, “Go U.S.A.! Fuck Commies!” is always a safe answer.
  • Remember that important role Ricky Gervais played in “Schindler’s List”? Me neither. But someone out there does!

Team Name Hall of Fame:

  • 1/2 Non-Canadian – They started out 1/3 Non-Canadian, but the numbers dwindled.
  • Jared – No idea what this word means...
  • Aside From That, How Was The Parade, Mrs. Kennedy? – Too soon.

 See you next Wednesday.

There’s only one way to describe tonight: Packed to the fuckin’ gills. The rain poured down and the teams poured in. One after another until the tables were full. A good friend of mine stopped in, grabbed a sheet, said he’d find a spot on his own, and then didn’t even turn in round one.

Enemies became allies, when Getting Figgy Wit It joined forces. Brasky joined the game late, but held their own. Is their name an allusion to the infamous Bill Brasky or to their home state? I’ll let you decide. There’s no debating the allusion of Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog, a completely kind and generous team. Tonight was also the grand return of Squeezin’ Daddies and those fabulous “o”s!

The More We Know:

  • Dropped some knowledge on everyone’s ass, letting them know that Gary, Indiana has the second highest murder rate in the nation. First? East St. Louis.
  • The guy that invented the motor for the sewing machine also invented the motor for ceiling fans. Way to go, guy.
  • For those that don’t know, the chorus of God Bless America:


God Bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her and guide her,
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam.
God Bless America,
My home sweet home.

Best Worst Answers:

  • One team has earned my eternal respect and love for putting down “Mazes & Monsters” when seeing Tom Hanks. Still wrong, though.
  • One team wrote down “Bono (from U2).” Thanks for clearing that up.
  • And then for one of the names of the founding members of The Babysitters Club, one team wrote down Enid. I mean, ENID?!

Team Name Hall O’ Fame:

  • Does Anyone Else Get An Erection Listening To Smashmouth? – I think there were actually more women than men on this team, so…sure.
  • Not In Last PlaceThe most accurate team name I’ve ever come across.
  • Better Late Than Pregnant – Most people caught the “Arrested Development” reference, but not many caught this “Golden Girls” one.

 

See YOU next Wednesday.
