Phillies win the World Series…..boo hoo October 31, 2008

Posted by buzzwordz in Buzzwordz Trivia.

Well it was an interesting night as we were waiting until the end of the World Series to start.  Fortunatly for some the Phillies made quick work of it and we started right at 8:00. We had one of our lower nights of players but I think part of it was the Series and a lot of Halloween parties going on.

We did Halloween trivia to honor the week.

Winners of round 1were Biting Bidens Little Joe. Eveytime I said the team name I asked everyone to fill in the blank as I left off “Joe”

Mr & Mrs Smith and Company took round 2. Half the team left during round 3 and they still managed to take 2nd over all on the night.

Regulars Triple Treat started off slow on the night and came on strong in the third round forcing a tie breaker with Mr & Mrs Smith and Company. Triple Treat snuck in the win and took 1st over all on the night.

Sorry no mug shots as I let my daughter use my camera for a school function.  I will see you all next week and have a safe Halloween.

Filling in for Preacher…..10/28/08 October 31, 2008

I had a great time at The Glenn being a fill in for Preacher.  He has a great following there. We had 5 teams to start out the night.

Winning rounds one and two were Gods ofo Wrong Answers. Which I informed them that I need to change their name as they scored almost perfect on both rounds.

Taking the third and final round was Mad Dog it did however go down to the tie-breaker in that round.

Other teams showing for some good Halloween trivia were FOP, 4-Skin, and The Swinging Seniors.

I would fill in for Preacher again at this location anytime.

Old Chicago Wednesday Nights October 30, 2008

Ricoh here. It was the last Wednesday before Halloween, so we threw the Holloween-themed quiz at our goblins and ghouls at Old C’s here in the A.

<corny> It was a Graveyard smash, to say the least. 12 fearless teams come to the gauntlet, hoping to win the extra piece of Kandy Korn at the end of the night.

N(e)2 dropped an eight point 1st round to take the lead, but the Bronco Babes, Us Two, Phillies Suck and the Unfriendly Skies nipped at their heels with a one point margin.

Second round was just as strong, with McLovin coming juuust behind N(e)2 to position themselves “in the money” as we say.

McLovin also took the third round by force, scoring an impressive 18 points. No one believed “The Hills Have Eyes” was directed by Wes Craven either.

When the clock struck midnight and the fog had been lifted from our cemetary gates..the winner was N(e)2! Great to see you guys back on top.

Overall scores are as follows:

Soldiers – 2
Deaks – 5
Tomato – 20
Golden Bulldogs – 25
Bronco Babes – 32
Us Two – 33
Unfriendly Skies – 33
3rd Place – McLovin – 36
2nd Place – Phillies Suck – 37
Champions – N(e)2 – 39

See you next week! </corny>

Where Are My Trivia Friends?? October 30, 2008

Posted by buzzwordz in Buzzwordz Trivia.

We only had a couple of teams at Ogden Street South.  My regulars have been MIA the last few weeks.  That’s What She Said missed the last two weeks, as has Short Bus.   Hopefully you guys reappear next week.  I however, will be absent next week, Matt from Sunday OSS will be filling in for me.

We started with just four teams and ended with three.  We were playing for an entire bar tab.  We should be starting the tournament next week, with Coors as our sponsor (instead of Sam Adam’s again).

Cobra Kai(formerly Blonde Ambition) won the tie breaker and got their food and drink paid for.  Funny thing about their name… they took the name of a different team.  I was pretty confused when I got their answer and couldn’t find the original team.  I guess Nikki that started the name passed it on to her friends.  So this was their first ever win (Cobra Kai won in the past, but that was with the other members).  They usually leave before the game is over, but finally stayed a whole game and won!

They played poker and trivia, that’s cause women are supposed to be good multi-taskers.  Team Holdem almost had the game, but were overthrown in the tie breaker.  They didn’t get the bar tab, but they did get some purple hooters.  I didn’t get their picture cause they were too busy playing poker.  One of the gals wants to host trivia though (don’t forget to put in a good word for me!).

I guess they liked the weekly dinner special, cause they named their team Greek Chicken.  They were a new team that did well kicking ass.  They were just 2 points behind the other teams.

B&M played a couple answers and the disappeared.  I’m not sure where they went, but they had to come clear across the bar to bring their answers each time.

Well guys, the night was eventful and exciting, even if you didn’t want Halloween questions.

See you in 2 weeks @ 8:30 (you’ll see Matt next week).

Sorry I started late guys, I was having an off day- but it was all good!  How do you like the new set up?  I think I like it better.  I wasn’t sure how I was going to work that out at first- my brain was not working at all, and I seriously couldn’t figure out how I was going to work out sitting on a stool, but having the computer super low.  Then our friendly bartender came up with the brilliant idea of using a CHAIR!!!  I never would have thought of that yesterday, seriously.   Anyhow I am babbling, yada yada-  Let’s just put up some pics- eh?

A lot of the other teams commented on your funny name this week TWO GIRLS AND A CUP!  And First Place, very nice!  One of these days your anonymous member will show his/her face...

So teach- what are you teaching these kids?  First you have a discrepancy over happy hour and get kicked out of a hotel, and now you just bring them to a place to win and get free drinks?  Well apparently something- second place!  Nice work WHO CARES?

Charlie’s Halloween Style Trivia October 29, 2008

Posted by buzzwordz in Buzzwordz Trivia.

Last week we didn’t have any draught beer, but we got our Miller High Life back this week!  If you hadn’t noticed, the country is in a bit of a recession, even if the gas has gone down a bit.  They increased our drinks a mere 50 cents.  Really, 75¢ still isn’t bad for a beer!  That’s cheaper than a 6 pack!!

So I let the crowd vote- regular trivia or Halloween trivia.  There was an overwhelming vote for Halloween trivia.  So that’s what we did.

We had quite a few teams this week, since you’re all in the drinking spirit for the upcoming holiday.  There were 10 teams- that ain’t bad!

They lagged behind the first and second rounds by just a point, but then won the third round tie breaker.  JT took first place in the Halloween style trivia.  This team will once again be shrinking to just one player.  Tim- maybe you should bribe some smart folks to join your team…

Second place went to Alleycat.  They won the second round, but lost the tie breaker for round three.  I think they mentioned to me that Justin should make a guest appearance or something, since we all miss him so much.  Justin- I think Thanksgiving would be a great time for you to visit us!!

The Hiccups came and took third place tonight.  They were missing a couple boys, but had some other smart guys on the team tonight.  I’m so happy that you guys are back into trivia 🙂

We had lots of other teams that played and enjoyed the cheap beer but didn’t score a prize:

Loose Lips was a formation of a bunch of folks that usually just hang around.  I badger them every week to play, and they finally gave in to me.

No matter how sharp they were, they just didn’t make it to even turn in every question.  Sharp Shooters tried to convince me that they came down from Boulder just to play trivia.  If you read my blog, you might recognize one of these guy from back in July.  He tried to fight me cause he was from Ohio or something (I hail from the Great Lakes State).  He also was in love with the breasts of one of my friends.  Sheesh, those Boulder boys!  Yeah, I consider that an upgrade 🙂

Even if it was his  60th, Phyllis still hit the trivia circut.  I got to share his birthday dance with him, but I’m pretty sure he won’t remember that when he’s done celebrating.  HAPPY BIRTHDAY PHYLLIS!

They won the first round, played the second and then left.  You can’t win a good prize unless you stay all night.  Do you like tacos? promised me they would come back next week, but I’m not quite convinced yet.  Sorry ladies, I thought I had a picture of you, but guess I don’t 😦

Saint George turned in a few answers and then disappeared.  Maybe he heard that alcohol was a sin…

They were dancing and drinking, but Group 6 turned in a couple of answers.

He came near the end of the game and played with team Phyllis for a bit, but then went solo.  Big Ed was back for more trivia tonight.  You really need to come earlier though!

Whew, that was all of the teams.

Maybe it was cause I wasn’t drinking, but it was a pretty chill night.  There wasn’t any fights.  There was beer on tap.   And it wasn’t too hot or cold.  I will call that a success!!

Whatever you do this Halloween weekend, get drunk (like I really have to tell you that) and be safe!!

Tuesday Night’s Showdown at Old C’s!! October 29, 2008

Posted by buzzwordz in Buzzwordz Trivia.

Hello Downtowners thanks for showing up on Tuesday, we weren’t quite as busy as the last two weeks but still some really solid teams. Our staples LLUA and The Monkees were of course there and battling it out for 1st place.  The Monkees ended up winning in a tiebreaker and LLUA had to settle for 2nd place.  AKA turned in a very good game as well taking the third round to a tiebreaker and only coming up 3 points short for the game!  Three Drunk Guys were a lot of fun, while their answers may not have been right all the time they kept me laughing throughout the game, including their request for 80’s night which I so graciously obliged with some Cure and Duran Duran!  I do also want to apologize for starting late I had a mic malfunction but we got it fixed and it shouldn’t happen again!  Thanks again bring more friends next week, see you all there!

Kentucky Has Apples Too! October 28, 2008

Posted by buzzwordz in Buzzwordz Trivia.

Our shot special for tonight at Jackson’s was Kentucky Apples (similar to Washington Apples).  We didn’t have that many people playing, what’s wrong, you scared of the cold?  Maybe you were out crafting your Halloween costume.

 

Speaking of Halloween, Jackson’s will be having a little Halloween party.  They have $10 cover and then lots of drink specials.  They will also be raffling off lift tickets to Copper Mountain (my personal favorite).

 

We had some drink specials of our own tonight.  We had $5 PBR pitchers, $5 Jager bombs, and $3 Sam Adams Oktoberfest.  Oh, and those apple drinks to get everyone in the mood for Halloween.

 

There was a mere five teams tonight, with three of them being new.

 

Makin it Rain was back on the scene tonight.  They won the game with a two point lead.  They still didn’t want their picture taken, even if his girlfriend knew his whereabouts tonight.   I think he accused me of getting in his business or something, but really, I was just kiddin around.

 

Takin’ home second place was a new team, Pocket Rockets.  Love the name!  Funny thing, I knew one of these guys from way back.  You see, the Denver Metro Area just isn’t that big.  I mean, I came from a small town, and I probably wouldn’t rememeber half of them, but hey, I remember Nick.

 

Funny thing about out of towners that are football fans, they always seem to pack their jersey or team shirt.  Pipe About This Big was in town on business.  They were referred to Jackson’s by a local, and I’m sure they had fun.

 

Bullocks (aka Whatever Damnit! and Thugs) took the invisible prize for third place.  They have diligently come to trivia but are stuck in a funk with scoring.  But to set the record straight, they were only three points behind the first place.  I’d tell you to study, but I’m not really sure what you would study.  Hmm… See you next week?

 

They only answered a couple of questions, cause I think they were out smoking.  Jaime & Nathan– you can’t win the game if you don’t really play.  I know, the questions can be rather difficult though.  Hope you at least had fun.

 

I will have the pictures up later this afternoon, I’m avoiding the internet patrol at my day job.  Eek.

 

Enjoy your Halloween and see you next week @ 6:30!

Good evening Monday Night Footballers!

I was a little nervous that the night would be a little slow, there weren’t that many teams at first.  Turns out it was just a little bit of a late start.  No worries!  I don’t care when you get here or when you have to go, but just come on down and say hello!!!

So what did I find you all doing tonight?  I think I got some good ones here!

Richie Rich- You came in late, yet still managed to win?  Are you sure you don’t have the questions ahead of time?

Hello there Indians fan in the blue shirt.  Yeah you!  In the blue shirt!

 
 
 
 

 

  

 

 

Your team- RYAN LEAF- AMERICAN HERO said it was ok to put this picture up.  But I think it is OK.  You guys got second!
BIMBOS- I definitely giggled when I saw your team name.  I also am jealous of that chicken wing.  Lizzy wisely pointed out that I should not order wings when I am trying to work- a bit messy.  But I still am curious to see how good they are!

I am really impressed! Even without the late Sunday night football game, and a World Series game 4 that only a few people in Denver care to watch, we had a GREAT turnout!

 

Unfortunately not all of the teams that started could finish, but here’s to you Illini!  I’m not sure if they left early or just stopped playing to focus on beer, but LJs and Tom 4:20, thanks for playing from upstairs.

Now to the finishers . . . Showing up for round 3 only, and putting together an outstanding run was Foreheads are Better than One.  Way to go guys and you’d better be back next week.

 

Foreheads are Better than One

The Goose is Loose hit some tough patches, and then got on a roll, then got snagged again, but we appreciate your effort, and next week I’m expecting you guys to win a round or two!

The Out of Towners were here on business visiting from Boston, San Francisco, and Omaha.  They had a great performance and just ended up out of the money at the end.  I FULLY expect to see you guys next Sunday!

542 did an awesome job of leading the entire game until about the second half of the third round where they got tripped up on a couple of questions and fell to third.  That’s okay though, third still scores a prize, and I know I’ll see you guys next week, right?

In second was a team from upstairs that was on everyone’s heels all night, but couldn’t ever seem to catch the leader, even when the lead changed hands.  Tube Steakhouse, thanks for playing and keep doing what you do, you’ll get there.

Finally, the winners of the evening, always playing the bridesmaid but never the bride until tonight. Snapping their long streak of taking second, Mike’s #1 Fan finished first.  To celebrate, they got Mike and Ashley to pose with them (Mike is the awesome bartender in the blue jersey, Ashley is the outstanding server in the black jersey).

Great job to all teams that played and I’m counting on seeing everyone back next week for some football and trivia!
