Teams: JON, Jim, PS I Love You, Stroup, FMR, The Red Heads, Vibrating Tubes of Gun Barrel, Giraffe and Emersyn.

Despite hurricane force winds blowing down off the mountains, nine intrepid teams braved the elements to wage a battle of wits during Buzzwordz trivia at the Lazy Dog in Erie. Team Jim and FMR were battling it out for the lead early, but the Vibrating Tubes of Gun Barrel were not far behind. Team Giraffe had the best animal-themed hat of the night, but it wasn’t enough to get them the win. At the end of the 3rd Round, it was FMR and the Vibrating Tubes battling it out with the Tubes eventually claiming victory.

We’ll be back at the Lazy Dog on Wednesday at 7pm for another night of Buzzwordz Trivia. Hope to see you there!

Fun times at the Lazy Dog this week! We gave away a Budweiser grill as our prize. Some assembly required but it looked pretty sweet. We had a -way tie in the first round between BDT, FMR, and Polaris Breach. FMR stole the show for the rest of the game, coming out on top and scoring the sweet grill.

Next week we are giving away some awesome Broncos folding chairs so come join us!!

Lazy Dog – BUDWEISER Cooler Anyone? January 19, 2012

If you’re in need of a cooler then you should probably play trivia at the Lazy Dog. Last week we gave away a sweet Broncos cooler and this week we gave away…a BUDWEISER cooler on wheels with an Ipod hookup! Pretty sweet! Oh and it gets better–next week we give away a GRILL BABY! I’m very excited about this even though I will not be in the running for any prizes.

This week the teams were neck and neck most of the time. 6 Guys came in first in the first round but said they were “disappointed in their performance” for the rest of the night. Even though they came in second overall. The Hosers came in first in Round 2 and tied with Team 24  for first in round 3. Overall the Hosers came out on top and rolled away the beautiful Budweiser cooler.

COME BACK NEXT WEEK FOR A SHOT AT THE GRILL EVERYBODY!

I had the chance to sub at Lazy Dog last night. It’s where our Benchwarmers location used to be so it was good to be back. While there weren’t round by round prizes, there was one super sweet prize at the end–A Broncos cooler! At the end of the night it was the QWhiz that came out on top, followed closely by the Special Ed’s. Well done all!

QWhiz was in it to win it and they did just that!

Benchwarmers: DOUBLE RAINBOW ALL THE WAY!!! July 23, 2010

What does it mean?? I’m pretty sure it was a sign that we were going to have a very special night of trivia. And we did. By now I think everyone has seen the viral You Tube video, Double Rainbow. If not, here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQSNhk5ICTI   We had just finished our first round when the thunderstorm gave way to a double rainbow (all the way) over the Benchwarmer’s parking lot. No one else seemed super enthused, but I was just as excited as the Canadian guy in the video. Tears and everything.

Congrats to Who Dat? for coming in first in round 1 and scoring that $25 Benchwarmers gift certificate. Nice Legs, when do they open came in second overall. The Titleists stole round 2 and enjoyed their free beer, but not before beating out the Aholes, Nice Legs, and Titleist out in a close tiebreaker.

There it is! Notice how the stronger ray is shooting straight into the Benchwarmers corporate office. Now that HAS to be a good sign.

...all the way oh my God!!!

Benchwarmers Erie: Golf+Trivia Tournament?? July 16, 2010

I’ll bet you didn’t know that right in Benchwarmers’ backyard is the Colorado National Golf Club! I knew it was a golf course, but that sounds like a pretty big deal to me! Seeing as Buzzwordz is kind of a big deal in trivia, how awesome would it be if we were to combine Buzzwordz and the CNGC in some sort of trivia/g

olf competition?! I can just see it now: the ultimate brains+brawn challenge.  I’ve never actually played golf in my life but I think that sounds like an amazing idea. We could even make t-shirts!  More to come on that. I’m sure the CNGC would be totally game.

This week we had a great game. Friends making friends and playing trivia, plus some very close scores. Congrats to Revenge of the Stinkeye for coming in first and scoring a $25 gift certificate! XXXX and Andy faced off for second place and XXXX came out on top in the tiebreaker.  And PAB was just a few points behind!

You TOO could have this Buzzwords trivia experience! Just imagine--play some putt putt then finish the evening with some trivia!

Benchwarmers Erie: LeBron vs. Buzzwordz July 9, 2010

Enough said. Of course we won….anyways we had an excellent game of Thursday night trivia at Benchwarmers and some very close scores. Red Breast came out on top, with Fire at the Disco coming in right on their heels. PNC (you’ll have to ask them what it stands for) came in a close third.

Red Breast giving me the evil eye I have no idea why because they won.

Fire at the Disco came in second overall. In their own words: "really we came in second? We weren't even trying hard!" Uh oh! Red Breast better watch out next week!

Fireplace/Rice and Beans kept me company and played pretty well too.

PNC--the definition of purity and innocence.

Team McManion, our lovely couple of the evening.

My friend Murph showed up for trivia after some hard core trampoline action at Jumpstreet. Here she is showing off the damage from jumping too intensely. She didn't like those pants anyway.

Benchwarmers Erie: I went to Israel did you miss me!?! July 3, 2010

Yes I went to Israel and had an amazing time. I learned a lot about being a good Jew. But that’s beside the point. (thanks to Geoff for subbing  last week)

This week we had some very close and very impressive scores.  Congrats to You can Call me Crazed Sex Poodle for winning round 1’s tie breaker and taking the $25 gift certificate for first place overall! YCCMCSP had our very own Geoff as a valuable team mate. I wish that being a trivia host automatically made you a good trivia player, but I’m living proof that that just isn’t true.

The Lovehandles came in first in round 2 and enjoyed some tasty purple nurple slurpie shots (or whatever they were called. I just know they were grape flavored)–nice job!  Also with noteworthy scores for the evening were BS2 (squared), Velez Vedka (second place overall) and SNIPER. See ya’ll next week!

These guys are the Lovehandles because they know how to handle love and for many other reasons too. They would've won the night had they joined us for round 1!

Our very own Buzzwordz trivia host Geoff joined team You Can Call Me Crazed Sex Poodle and came in first overall! And no he did not know the answers before hand he's just real smart.

Velez Vedka sadly lost the tie breaker for round 1 but came in 2nd overall!

BS2 (the '2' means squared) was our happy family team and played well throughout the night. They brought some highly knowledgable ozzies to help them out!

SNIPER would've had their regular high points score but sadly had to leave before the game was finished.

Benchwarmers–Go Lakers! June 18, 2010

Actually I don’t really follow basketball but I know they won so I’d rather be on the winning team…speaking of winning, congrats to Where is Lacy for winning overall at Benchwarmers Erie trivia! The TM3’s scored big in round 1 and A1 came in a close third in round 3.

Did I mention I’m going to Israel tomorrow!? Geoff will be subbing but I will be back the following week, much wiser and with lots of wonderful trivia-relevant photos to post!

A1 joined in late but still had a pretty good run. Don't be so shy and come sit a little closer next time!

Where is Lacy--nice job on pulling ahead in round 2 and winning for the night!

the TM3's had some world travelers to help them out on some of those tough geography questions.

Benchwarmers: horse people are smart people June 12, 2010

Just take my word for it. You had to be there.

Between the Laker/Celtics game, some lively trivia players and a crazy thunderstorm, it was a very exciting night at Benchwarmers in Erie. This week it was a battle ’til the end between all the teams, but it was Team Awesome that championed in the end. Coming in close second was Everyone Pays for Kisses, and close behind was the Tejons, the Walkers, and The Timberlines (some of my favorite horse people 😉  )

The rowdy Tejons borrowed some knowledge from good old Bohica and that was ok with me.

awwww Timberline so cute! some of my favorite smart horse people 🙂

Team Awesome--winners of round 2 and champions in the end!

Team Everybody Pays for Kisses (sorry missed a pic of you guys last night) came in second but was stoked about their $15 Benchwarmers g.c. that they will be using next week fo sho!

The Walkers--our lovely and smart family team of the evening.

A lovely view from the Benchwarmers patio of the Rockies right before the storm came in 🙂
