Hello friend. How I’ve missed you. October 29, 2009

Hey there Buzzwordz Junkies….long time, no talk. That’s my fault. I know, I’ve let you all down. But it’s ok, I’m back now and things are great.

Tuesday night at the Big Apple Cafe was another great night. The crowd had been weakening a bit lately, but we rebounded Tuesday and ended up with a great game! I guess all this craptacular weather we’ve been having in DFW has kept most of the trivia players at home. Thankfully, the clouds parted just long enough for most players to escape from their homes and join us for some trivia.

With several regulars in the bar, it was no surprise when Team Help! jumped out of the gates with an easy opening round victory. However, shocking everyone was Team Bar-3 (the bartenders) storming out and winning round 2 on the night. The most intriguing aspect of the game was the addition of Team OE in the 2nd round. They joined in and quickly jumped toward the top of the leaderboard. Although they only played 2 rounds, their score was only a few points behind the winners. It left every team in the bar wondering what might have been….

Although Team DJ, DJay & the DeeJays wasn’t able to secure a round victory, the were very happy to walk away with second place overall. It’s proof that if you play all three rounds, you are never out of contention. After a monster final round, the leaderboard showed Team Bar-3 as the overall winner. However, since the bartenders do not collect prizes, Team Help! (only 1 point back) and DJ, DJay & the DeeJays took home the gift certificates.

The competition is stepping up at the Big Apple, so I encourage all of you to bring your friends out and give your team the best shot possible. The more the merrier, right?

Good talk.

We had a great night of trivia at the Que! Great food and drinks, with too many TV’s to watch 🙂

Allen’s Buzzin Off took the first round, and educated me on the SNL skit they were named after.

Pigskins defeated Brain Dead in the second round, with amazing Monty Python knowledge.

Allen’s buzzin off took the third round taking down the Brunettes.

The game came down to a tiebreaker, and Allens buzzing off outfoxing Pigskins!

Come back next week for more fun!

Snow Doesn’t Stop Us! October 22, 2009

My oh my!  What a snowy night this week at Charlie’s for trivia.  Thankfully, we had the plastic windows in to keep out the snow and wind.  And even better, the heaters were working wonderfully.

We had some returners this week and of course, some of the regular folks.

Alleycat is an unstoppable force right now.  They won all three rounds and then took the game by five points.  Someone really needs to step up and bring these pussies down!

10-21-09 009Second place went to The Evil Dr. Scientist. Scott returned this week after a two week hiatus and a fake-out that he was moving to San Diego.  This week, they were a team that was merged from a couple smaller teams

Third place this week was Resurrection of Mickey Rourke.  They were a team from a long time ago.  I chatted with them about bikes, and the library, and meeting on the sidewalk.   After all the chatting, I totally forgot to take their picture.   Luckily enough, I was able to find an old photo of these gals.

Chris, Anna,  Bob & Staff was a mixture of people working and people drinking.  They weren’t able to get any free beer, but it’s ok, most of them work there anyways.

We haven’t seen Diamond in forever and ever.  Welcome back.  Thanks for coming to see me!

If you came out to play trivia, I want to tell you thank you, and you kick ass.

Much love, see you next week.

Yeti and Snowman Win Due to Conditions October 22, 2009

We had a great room last night at City Pub. Despite the frigid and snowy weather there were six teams that threw their hat in the proverbial ring. When it finally stopped snowing two man team Yeti and Snowman held the first place prize. Francophiliacs took second, while last week’s champ’s Samsons Keepers fell to third.  Jacee took fourth place. Gigalo Jones made it to 5th, while CPT took the wooden spoon.

Special note: thanks to everyone for not commenting on the notebook answer sheets! I absentmindedly left the normal ones at home.  Also for the last tie-breaking question, I have verified that the distance we had as correct is indeed. We have a certain tributary system included, but it was the first answer that came up on multiple sources. (Purposely vague as to not spoil answers).

Check us out next week for more brain-busting action!

Well it was my last night at Old Chicago, Broomfield and when I pulled up into the parking lot it was full.  When I went into the bar it was full and every TV had the Buffs/Kansas game on.  This usually means when the game is over, the bar empties out… but not tonight!

We started with 12 teams and ended with 12 teams.  It was a GREAT crowd and plenty of style points – which I LOVE!

First round went smoothly with Mattress King winning with a near-perfect round, and Yes, That and 4 Gals and a Guy just 1/2 point behind.

Renegades, Afternoon Delight and Bumpkins started early down the style points road.

With round 2, Rocky Horror jumped to the front, again with a couple of teams in close pursuit – Yes, That, At the Beach Mattress King (their name grew), Castration Station and Cheaters.

The style-pointers were Dominatrix, Renegades, Buffs Rules Kansas Drools, Bumpkins, Yogi Halo n Wings, and Solo Mojo.

Note: After I announced this was going to be my last night, and knowing how much I love style points, Solo Mojo broke off from Castration Station devoted to the sole purpose of finishing rounds 2 and 3 only with style points – A perfect style point score – mission accomplished!  And Thanks! Very entertaining.

Round 3, and again no need for a tie-break. Yes, That which had been on the heels of everyone finally won a round, and Rocky Horror, At the Beach Mattress King Radio Shack (name grew again), and Castration Station were in a close chase.

For round 3, a whopping total of 105 style points were awarded – the most EVER! Leaders in that arena were Solo Mojo, Buffs Rule, 4 Gals 1 Guy, Bumpkins, Castration Station, Renegades, Afternoon Delight and Yogi – all near or over  10 style points!

So for top points it was Yes, That.  They’ve been strong the last two months.  And we finally needed a tie-break, but for 2nd place in top points. It was between Rocky Horror and Mattress King, but the King handed the prize over to Rocky without much of a fight.  Rocky has become a strong regular contending team and it was good to see King back in the bar and playing.

Overall a super-good time.  I thank you all for keeping me entertained over the last year and I hope to bump into  a few of you every now and again.

Until then…

Ciao for now,

– Keith

Trivia at Charlie’s is Never Boring! October 17, 2009

Well I had my blog all written and my pictures downloaded a few days ago.  I go to the website to upload the stuff.  And well… I can’t seem to remember or find the password.  Looks like I’ve killed too many brain cells.

Nonetheless, here we go…

Whew, this week at Charlie’s started rough for me.  First, I forgot my magic little box at home that puts my computer screen on all the tvs (note: the new tvs are fabulous!).  I was able to snag a ride to get home and back to the bar before the game started.  Then…  I still couldn’t get it to work and we started a little bit late.  But nonetheless, we finally played trivia.

The weather was great for the patio and we didn’t get rained or snowed on this week.  And we weren’t delayed due to a Rockies game.

meow!

meow!

Alleycat, our dominant team dominated the others this week.  They won the first and third round and the game.  They had a couple new members this week that were up for some fun.  Thanks for being a good sport, Allan, I know we ran 15 minutes late 😉

hic... i drank too much.. up

Second place went to The Hiccups.  They won the second round by a point, but didn’t rally the troops for the third round. They initially started as the Hickmans, but they added lots of players, and then lost a Hickman.  Wonderful to see that you all were able to get the night off and come see me J

beer for me too!

beer for me too!

I always beg ‘em to play, and they always turn me down. (Story of my life. Heh.)  Beers 2 Us did  get some drink cards.  They won the third round in the tie breaker and scored some shot cards.  You asked for beer, but you got drink cards, don’t be picky!

don't look so scared!

don't look so scared!

Phyllis lost the tie breaker cause he didn’t know about Timber.  Oh you don’t know about wood, huh?  Thankfully he acquired a team member that bought a round of pity drinks.  You know Charlie’s loves you no matter how smart you are.

He didn’t know what to call his team of one, so he called it, Me On My Own.  He sat at the bar and wanted hints, I’m sorry, that’s cheating.  He played only one round and then disappeared to I don’t know where.

They started Beaujour and became Bonjour and Beaudfelly  Wonderful.  I’m not sure what that was about.  I was always able to tell it was them because it started with a B.  Maybe the B is because Ben is missing.  Oh little Ben, where are you.

Textonics only turned in one answer.  He stood around and watched, like it was Jeopardy, but didn’t turn in any answers.  Thanks for not shouting like it was Jeopardy!

That was our exciting, technically difficult night.

I basically don’t remember this entire night. October 14, 2009

Kind of a blur.  The Rockies game the night before made for a bit of a rough Tuesday.  I remember chair dancing quite a bit, I wasn’t in a terrible mood or anything, I just seriously don’t remember a lot.  Except that I don’t want to eat those modified pizza rolls you recommended  ever again Jen.  Sorry, I think those are gross!  How can you possibly eat those?!?!?!?!

Baked Mac- So Amanda- is this totally going to be you in a few months?  I notice you weren’t drinking again. 

Domestic Imports: Wait a second… Domestic… Imports?!?!?!  How is this possible.  Maybe if it comes in from another state or something???  Hmmm… 

Stop Talking: So, I still am convinced that you were talking about me.  And I may or may not hate you a little for it.

Squishy Banana: Holy crap- did you know that a banana browner actually exists?  I guarantee you can find this in Sky Mall.

Adam- Holy crap again- do you have any idea how much you resemble this man???  Well, minus the weird 80s stuff…

Scallywags: There ya go- you’re favorite dude, Tom Brady.  Oh and btw- I’m gonna start looking hot when I come in to water your plants Miguel, I have a boyfriend to find.

Ride Junkies: I am very glad to see you actually do know how to spell.  No clue you were just kidding for quite some time there and I really did think your IQ was very low.  *sorrrrry*

ZED- Creepy

ICUP- Now originally I thought that this was just an innocent 3rd grade “Spell I   CUP” kind of name.  Now that I see its actually an over the counter drug test I look at you all a little differently.

Ok- I will be on my A-game next week I swear.

No Rockies… Go for Trivia! October 13, 2009

Well with the Rockies getting frozen out for the night trivia was back on and I’m glad I was there!  We had a great bunch of teams fighting for our prizes!

Round 1 was quite interesting.  OMG Pink Ponies came in first but just behind them by two points were Single for the Weekend, Bob and Dave, The Betteroffs, Not Again!, Yest That, The God Squad, and Suckiest Ninjas!!

Round 2 separated the teams a little bit with Yes That winning both the round AND the bonus beer question!  Again less than 2 points behind the leader we had 5 teams!

We had a 3 way tie for first place of round 3! Single for the Weekend, The God Squad, and new team Epic Fail all had 21 for the round.  Overall points went to Single for the Weekend by a half of a point over Yes That! It was an awesome night for all the teams!

I’ll see you all next week! Same bat time, same bat place!

SMILE! Youre Single for the Weekend!
