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. 

So, as yu can see by the scores and team names, I got made fun of a lot this week. Mostly because I fall down and break things a lot, as well as my microphone is the only woman who will ever truely love me. Those are both fair points, but you don't have to rub my face in it. Its entirely a coicidence that both of those teams didn't do well, entirely. . . 

So here's a bit of education for your unwashed masses: One our visual round this week was a man named Alan Tudyk. You may know him like the visual round does and I do as Wash from Firefly, or you may know him as Pirate Steve from Dodgeball. 

Either way, you need to know that this man is amazing. He also appeared as Wat in A Knight's Tale as well as provided voices for Frozen (The Duke of Weiselton) and Wreck-It-Ralph (King Candy). He is also one of the most genuinly funny and honest celebrites I have ever heard about in his encounters with the public. As far as I can tell he is like Bill Murray without all the press coverage and way more willing to show up at Comicons.

The other thing is that he seems (with the exceptions of a chipmunk movie) to be very particular in what he appears in. I highly recommend you check out his filmography. 

As far as the quiz goes. . . people won, people lost, a team is getting free beer next week, and the second place team after 6 rounds pouted and left us. Pretty much standard affair.

Yes, folks, Love is indeed a Battlefield, but that answer is still not correct no mattter how much applause you give them.

You know, I like to think of my self as a fairly witty person (Cue jeers). I mean, I handle hecklers decently well, I can come up with a decent pun every now and then, and all my jokes are usually topical to what we are doing in the quiz. For example, the joke that I thought was funniest was my Larry-King-Is-Probably-A-Zombie thing, and I did that during the Larry King round. Cool how that works huh?

The issue is that I really don't know what to say here. I mean I could just recap the quiz, tell you what you were good at (Music, Current Events, Ancient Porn) and then tell you what you sucked at (Larry King, English People Playing Southerners) but thats been done a thousand times by other Quizmasters (and a good number by me). When I started here at the Ram, I swore to myself that my blogs would always be spontaneous, free-form, and interesting. Its that last part that seems to have me hung up right now.

So about the quiz, we had a couple of strong competitiors come out of the woodwork unexpectedly with Taj M'Balls, but ultimately the two Rumble Teams came out with the top two spots and everyone below 4th was tanking as hard as they could for my Special Coupon (TM). 

Even if I am lacking creativity, I had fun last night, as I always do. Plus we got to play Tool and ICP really loud. Gotta love those Magnets. See you next time!

What a bounceback from a relatively quiet week! This week we had teams coming out our ears. Its good that we didn't have more than 10 because I would have run out of visual rounds. I was feeling quite energized this week and as such gave you guys an enormous amount of crap. That is pretty typically par for the course, but I just thought you should know that I did notice.

This week our teams did their best impressions of NBA teams. What do I mean by that? Well in the NBA there are three kinds of teams: Contenders, Rebuilders, and Mediocre. The worst place to be is the third one. You either want to be pushing for it all, or doing as poorly as possible so that you can hopefully have a chance to win it all later. 

Our quizzers really took that to heart this week. There were 4-5 teams that thought they had a shot to get in the top spots and as such went all out to get those giftcards. The other teams, realizing that maybe they didn't have the best shot, went all out tanking in hopes of being rewarded by Kyle's Special Coupon (tm). 

In a way this is completely my fault for rewarding losers, but I also love it. It creates a competition within the rules of another competition. This would normally be a bad thing if the original competition mattered, but its Pub Quiz, none of this actually matters!
