Quizzers With Attitude
JaredDuncan

It’s fitting that we had round tonight on David Letterman’s final show, as I’ve always compared myself to him in my quizmaster duties. The subtle disdain for the guests, the jokes that often don’t land, sleeping with my interns…I could go on and on. But instead why don’t we move on to tonight’s top ten: The More We Know: Pierre, the state capital of South Dakota, is actually pronounced with just one syllable. Jury’s still out on Montpellier. Best Worst Answers: So many teams put down “Beastie Boys”
[ ...more... ]

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.

When I Get That Feeling, I Need Quizzical Healing
JaredDuncan

I’m going to paint an unflattering picture here, so bear with me. Quizzers are like earthworms. The moment the rain starts up, they come up out of the filth and dirt to bathe themselves in useless questions. I guess that’s where the similarities end, really…Oh my God. Can you imagine how embarrassed I would be if actual earthworms came in to play one night? I’m bookmarking this just in case. The More We Know: Jon Hamm has yet to win an Emmy. There’s only one week left, but I fully expect that to change in 2016. “I Know Who Killed Me” is actually Linsday

I'm Lit & I Don't Care What No One Thinks, But Where The QUIZ Is The Waitress With My Drink?!
JaredDuncan

You thought quiz was over, but guess what. I have one last question: Do you see what happens, Larry? Do you see what happens when you forget to write your team name at the top of the sheet?!                                          The More We Know: Contrary to a popular (?) song, the shin bone is connected to the kneecap bone. Doesn’t really have the same flow…. Ben E. King was famous for performing “Stand

Hey, T-Shirt! Leave That Quiz Alone!
Jared

So, we at Geeks Who Drink have a hard-and-fast rule against using the T-word. In order to be taken seriously, we must use the term “pub quiz” at each turn. Yet, this doesn’t stop people from calling me “T-word Dad” or “T-word Guy” every week. I respond to it out of kindness and hospitality. But please, if you see me on the street or on the stage at Ozzie’s, call me “Quizmaster.” Or for my German fans, “Quizmeister.” Danke. The More We Know: Many knew that Blackbeard captained the Queen Anne’s Revenge, but few know that the Lower Queen Anne’s Revenge is captained by Redbeard.

Hey Guys!

My name is Jared. My wife, Megan, and I moved from the Mid-West to Houston in 2008. 

Like so many who frequent there, we felt right at home at Little Woodrows in Rice Village and quickly became regulars. And that's when we first discovered Pub Quiz. The first night that we played, I decided I'd love to do that. So, I auditioned and here we are.

My favorite part of pub quiz is meeting all the players, especially welcoming new teams that join us each week.  So, if you're new to Pub Quiz, or if I haven't met you yet, come on up and introduce yourself the next time you play.   

Cheers

Earth Day Sex, Earth Day Sex
Jared

Well, Spring is finally here, which means that the sun is still out well into round number six. It’s a weird feeling…almost like I should be knocking back a mimosa instead of my usual five Jägerbombs. Maybe when the Washington orange shortage ends. The More We Know: Ernest Hemingway was the original crazy cat lady. The hero of “Big Hero 6” is named Hiro. Very confusing. “The Monster Mash” was performed by Bobby Pickett. Believe me, it will come up. Best Worst Answers: When asking what planet was the same size as Earth, I don’t know if one

I Always Feel Like...SOMEBODY'S QUIIIIZING ME!
Jared

Showing up to Ozzie’s at 5:45, I felt like I stepped through a wormhole back to Kansas. Camo baseball caps to the left of me, sleeveless John Deere tees to the right. Turns out that country music sensation Eric Church was playing at Key Arena, a mere three blocks away. Good times and good people, though. I even got a high five! The More We Know: Sidney Poitier won an Oscar, but not for directing “Ghost Dad”. Phil Collins’ “You’ll Be In My Heart” beat out Aimee Mann’s “Save Me” for Best Original Song Oscar in 2000, which, I shouldn’t have to tell you, is a damn crime. Toasted

Absolutely No Treble
Jared

We’ve finally reached that time of year when the sun shines into the bar during the first half of quiz. Feels weird. But, at the same time, I can actually read what I’m saying. And you can probably read what you’re writing. You can also finally differentiate if that’s Marlon Brando or Annette Benning in the visual round.   Then the sun sets, and the full moon rises. Well, technically it wasn’t a full moon tonight, but how else could you explain the sounds heard during karaoke?   So, quiz. We had seven teams, all with interesting names (who is Kevin anyway?). I’d like to say the battle was heated, but after tallying

Eight Rounds, Six Degrees
Jared

Can we all agree that horse cops are completely pointless these days? I’m not talking about horses that are actually cops, but mounted police. It’s like having a police car that’s slower, more unpredictable, and shits where it pleases. Let me explain: I was walking by one on the sidewalk today and the thing just rears up in my direction. Completely terrifying. If not for my quick reflexes, I would have been writing this from the other side. So, please just give me one reason why we still need horse cops. Wait, I just realized that if we didn’t have them, there would be no “Half Baked”. Nevermind, horse cops…we’re all good. What
