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.  

I’d said it before and I’ll say it again, Ozzie’s is an amazing bar. What’s that? I’ve actually never said it before? Oh…well, I’ll say it two times now. Ozzie’s is an amazing bar. Tonight their computer system shut down and they handled the crowd like pros. Stephanie, the world’s greatest server had to do everyone’s tabs in longhand. And let’s be honest, I don’t think anyone in this generation has done longhand math since 3rd grade. And the quizzers were polite and very patient. Amazing work all around.

Okay, Stephanie is tied for greatest server with my mother, who served Larry Bird a sandwich back in college. He may or may not be my real father.

The More We Know:

  • No one knows the name of the literal doctor on “Arrested Development”(Dr. Fishman). I doubt the actor who portrayed him even knows that.
  • Not that we just learned this, but Mexican drug cartels are frightening. Sewing someone’s face to a soccer ball? That’s some "Breaking Bad" shit right there.
  • Ho Chi Minh used to work as a baker in Boston. Wait, what if he served Larry Bird a cake?! That wouldn’t be the only thing Minh and Mom have in common. Also, that would make no sense timeline-wise.

Best Worst Answers:

  • Lot of young ones in the crowd tonight. One team wrote down “David Bowey.”
  • It may or may not be the same team that wrote down “Big Shark” by Billy Joel.
  • And if you don’t have a Brony on your team, the best answer for a “My Little Pony” question is “May the Horse be with You.”

Team Name Hall of Fame:

  • Rubber Biscuit – I embarrassed myself by singing Blues Brothers all night and that wasn’t even the reference.
  • We Otter Know – Brings to mind visions of Alanis Morissette as a sea creature.
  • “Quack” – This team actually just drew different pictures of a duck saying his trademark phrase for every round. Made my night very enjoyable. Thanks guys!

 

See You Next Wednesday.

For those that haven’t noticed yet, there is a Seattle accent. It’s very subtle and may actually only affect one word: bag. If you hear anyone here say that word, you’ll know immediately if they’re a native. “Baeg.” “I’m going to carry my six-pack of Rainier home in my canvas baeg.”

If James Brown had been from the Pacific Northwest, the song would’ve been “Papa’s Got a Brand New Baeg”. Just a weird little thought. Keep it with you. Save it for a rainy day. On to the quiz!

The More We Know:

  • Cartoon Network is the full name of the network. Show them the utmost respect, please.
  • All Scottish people are British people, but not all British people are Scottish people.
  • No one remembers the show “Insomniac”. Not even Dave Attell.

Best Worst Answers:

  • A team tonight heard “avian electric band” and wrote down Flock of Seagulls instead of Owl City. It was wrong, but you guys are my heroes.
  • But they also confused Queen with Billy Joel, so what do I know?

Team Name Hall O’ Fame:

Really?

Friends, the power of Satan is real. Just look at these round 7 scores:

                                                                

The More We Know:

  • Only two of Rolling Stone’s top ten greatest guitarists are dead. Apparently Keith Richards doesn’t count…
  • When I read a question about Tom Bodett, no one yelled out, “Wait, wait, don’t tell me!” C’mon, this is Seattle. NPR should be gently blasting from every speaker in town.
  • The knight in “Young Sherlock Holmes” was the first fully computer-generated character on film, paving the way for the likes of Jar Jar Binks, Bumblebee, and Sea Biscuit.

Best Worst Answers:

  • It’s a sad state of affairs when I ask a question about a football player and the answer “Date McRapey” sort of sounds correct.
  • One team put down “Breakfast @ Tiffany’s”, which is actually the modern-day remake starring Snooki as Holly Golightly.
  • Not worst answers, but a couple things on the guitarist round: 1. Jimi Hendrix was the first name written down by all three teams. Proud Seattlites, indeed. 2. Brian May was not on the list, but as one team pointed out, he bloody well should’ve been.

Team Name Hall of Fame:

  • The Three Dumpy People Over There – I was kind enough not to point while reading this name, but then they just waved anyway. Confidence, guys!
  • Two Mannings, One Cup – Last I checked, this video had 17 hits on YouTube.
  • Full Nelson Reilly – This is, what, the third week in a row this team has taken a name idea from me? In all fairness, I took it from the rock band Didjets, but I think they were done with it.

 

See you next Wednesday!
