Hello all, I am Kyle and I would love to be your Quizmaster this evening.

 

I have an irrational love for all things nerdy, I am terrible at pronouncing geography, and I tend to go a bit megalomanic on my blog.

 

For any and all further questions, catch me at one of my quiz locations. 

We aren't even in Germany, or that cheap Bavarian knockoff Leavenworth. I didn't think the drunk people who are a little to fiesty/friendly/touchy were supposed to show up until later. If you couldn't guess, we had one exceptionally affectionate, threatening, and very large quizzer this week. He ended up being a good guy, he just had very inebriated ways of showing it. Now all we need is an excessive amount of sausages and we have a world-domination party.

We had a bounceback week at the Ram as far as quizzing teams. The scores don't even reflect three other large teams that had to leave before round 3. My rule of thumb is that unless you last until I can get your picture then you don't get on the blog. (I suppose the exception would be that I am mentioning them right now. . . whoah, thats meta)

This quiz focused on John Malkovich, had questions on Iceland, sleep disorders, and Public Service Announcements (This is your brain at a quiz). It had a particularly nasty round 8 so a lot of teams deserved to have higher scores than they did but saved their jokers too long. 

Not that I really care or anything. I was too busy being physically threatened/offered peace overtures via drinks by the before mentioned drunk man. He was mostly harmless and I did say some rather violent and hateful things to him when he kept shouting out (mostly wrong) answers.  Note to self, make sure person is smaller than you before makeing overt gestures towards them. Or at least make sure I can hit him in the testicles and run away.

Thanks everyone for coming, see you next week!

Hello one and all, this week we were forcibly reminded about why we don't enjoy living in Western Washington as we got downpoured on solidly all day. Even the parking lot at the Ram was flooded and they are directly on the Sound. 

But enough about the rain, we quiz in a bar, where its nice and warm. Where there is both food and alcohol to be consumed. Apparently not many got the memo that bars are nice in the rain however. We had a little bit of a smaller turnout. No matter though, this just makes our hardy quizzers that much more motivated to win (let alone that smaller numbers makes it easier to win).

And try they did. Between rounds on Parental Advice and Fantasy Football, our younger teams seemed to have an edge from the beginning. Add in a tricky round 8 from our defending champs, and you get a (slightly) unexpected upset for our first spot.

Next week our current champs, as well as the ones they dethrones will (probably) be back to have at it again. There is always the possibility that a random team will come in and pull another upset to get the cash. Will it be you? If you are reading this then you have a chance unless you aren't coming next week then it won't be you.

Once again, I have failed you, my loyal quizzers. I had an entire round with obscure foreign words and I absolutely slaughtered every single one of them. Some of the attempts got cheers, some got cheers, and everyone was too drunk by the end to care.

So other than my ineptitude, what did we learn this week?  We learned about fictional cats, music about objects that rotate, and we finally combined phrased into one long phrase of horror.  This whole quiz was made significantly worse by the Mariners literally losing their play off chances over my head. Half the time I thought you were groaning at my terrible puns and it turns out you care more about some "Professional Sports Team" than me, you humble and generous quizmaster. 

We had a couple to tanking teams go for the win today, which is encouraging to see. Its like I said several times during the quiz, everyone knows random stuff, its just about finding a quiz that rewards your particular random stuff. Tacoma's Finest even placed in the top three and we didn't even have a sports round. Maybe they were trying to make up for the big ball of suck happening to the Mariners.

That's all I got this week, I am going to get off the computer before I mispronounce another word or 6. See you all next week.
