First and foremost- I need to just clarify for those who may actually be reading this blog and who were in attendance last night that I fact-checked the answers to the challenge round question, and my decision was the correct one. Indiana started a state wide observance of DST in April 2006- SO BAM SUCKAS! You all thought I was just being a weenie, but there you have it. I am, in fact, a freaking genius. That being said- Hey guys! Last night at Biddy’s was, some would say, stupid fun. ( I would. I would say that.) I saw a lot of my favorite faces, as well as a smattering of new ones; I piqued the interest of a few more (some drunk dude in the back came up after and told me I was “loud”- duh.) But more importantly, I was given free food and drink. THAT”S RIGHT! Team Blumpkin saw fit to keep me in a steady supply of Sun Chips all evening; were they buying me off? Nope! They were merely adhering to the bonus points option; and It May Be Short, But at Least It’s Skinny bought me a pint after making me wait for literally a decade for their answer sheets. Now, I’m not saying that this is a requirement- by no means. I am just saying that these things make for a happy
quizmaster. And now moving on to the good stuff:
Round one: BINGO! Usually, Bingo is a cinch for my teams, but this one had a few head scratchers. Of course, they all still did amazingly, because I only keep smart company. The Big Littles scored the Bingo Bonus, and every other team gleaned at least 3 points for all
their amazing renditions of suns. Round two was pretty awesome, with the lone wolf WildCatter- just some dude, sitting at the bar- getting a perfect score. PERFECT! But, the handouts were the deciding factor for which three teams got to enter the challenge round.
And those three teams were: Green and White Army (also a bit of a duh), that dark horse WildCatter, and those four hooligans who made up It May Be Short. Green and White had the advantage of choosing the question, and after a bit of a hullabaloo, and some general persnicketyness where people thought that I was not as awesome as I could have been (never true. I am always as awesome as is legally allowed) the winners were decided. Green and White Army took second, but it was those crazy kids IT MAY BE SHORT, BUT AT LEAST IT”S SKINNY who walked away with first place; maybe because
they attacked each round with the ferocity of a high school football coach looking for that national championship so he can finally say he accomplished something with his life;
maybe because they had brushed up on the subject matter; or maybe, just maybe, they had the gumption to win. What does all that mean? I have no idea. I just really wanted to work in the word gumption. So there you have it- another fun time had all around at Biddy’s. Couldn’t make it last night? Well sucks to be you, but never fear! There is always NEXT WEEK! And by NEXT WEEK yours truly will have aged substantially, as my birthday is friday. So see me in action now, because I plan on burning out young and beautiful sometime next fall. Thanks again to all who played and all who came. And, as ever, to the most attractive group of bartenders, cooks, and waitstaff I have ever known (down one now that you lost Dana, but as I still see her at pub quiz, that’s ok) a hearty thanks. And now, for something a little new and fun. This is a thing I like to call Casey’s Quotes, and they are things people wrote, or said, the previous night which made me laugh out loud. They were usually written when all hope was lost for that specific answer, so they used humor instead, which I will ALWAYS love. I feel everyone should enjoy them.
