OC Superior: June 14, 2011

We had a pretty great night last Friday at Old Chicago in Superior. It was a crazy night of extended family visits or something: The WHOLE Spearhead crew was present and frequent champion Harry’s (of Mark Cuban Sucks) MOM was with him and helped him kick some butt on the way to the win! Nice job, Harry’s Mom. Your family is pretty smart!

Ok, let’s rundown the stats for the night, shall we? Round One was a 3-way tie between Mark Cuban Sucks, SpearHeads FamDamily, and That’s What She Said… with TWSS for the win!

Round Two went to Mark Cuban Sucks, who also won the game overall.

The second place prize came down to a tie-breaker between My BF’s W is the Biggest and Olive Oil Tickle Fight… and MBFWitB ended up coming out on top.

Also playing we had Team Wyoming, Neurons, Mojitos, Fish &Chips, El Paso Heat, Mitchy Mitch and the Funky Bunch and Hung Like Zebras.

Okay, trivia night in Old Chicago in Superior are always rockin’ but this last Friday at OC Superior was awesome. First of all, it was Awesome 80’s Mix Tape night, so we had jammin 80’s hair band tunes all night (which was great according to some players and more like “is it bad 80’sĀ  night here or something?” according to others). I just liked how EVERYONE knew all the words… except for poor Justin Bieber on The Spearheads, who had no clue what this crazy classic rock was about. Poor Biebs.

Also, it was the RETURN of the full Spearheads team, after their vacay in Vegas.Ā  Welcome back, guys. No offense, but Becky and the Brady Bunch did a great job without you the previous week.

Ok, results time… (drumroll)…. The winner of Round One was The Snake Wranglers (Who drew me AMAZING pictures for every question and those awesome pics seem to have fallen out of my notebook. Crap). Second Round was a tiebreaker between Snake Wranglers, Spearheads and Steve Holt! (my players seem to have caught onto my love of Arrested Development…). The game overall ended in an AMAZING four way tie between Snake Wranglers, Kazaam, Spearheads and Last Place. Well done, everyone! Amazing trivia had by all!

The highlight of the evening, I must say, was the introduction of the Staff Question, a bonus question where I ask the players questions about their Old Chicago staff members. This weeks special question: In what year did Ben and Mary graduate High School? I’m not telling you the answers… but it was a good thing most of my players knew their servers well šŸ™‚

Go Old C’s in Superior!

Friday night was an awesome kick-off to the holiday weekend up at Old Chicago in Superior! Touch Me I’m Sick was the winner of Round One AND of the game, but they got some stiff competition in Round Two from Beanie Weenie Casserole, Mr. Banana Grabber (my favorite name of the night… I’m a sucker for Arrested Development references), Your Couch Might Pull Out But I Don’t (ew), The Brady Bunch + 1 Spearhead = Winners, and SF’d, all of whom were tied for the win in the second round. Mr. Banana Grabber took the tie-breaker… and no, your lovely hostess didn’t give them the advantage just because of their rad name.

Most of The Spearheads were partying it up in Vegas with Justin Bieber on Friday, but one brave Spear stayed to play… with her parents (The Bradys), thus giving us the super team of The Brady Bunch + 1 Spearhead = Winners, who tied for Second Place overall but, alas, lost out in the finale tie-breaker to Last Place, who managed to rally in the third for a brilliant comeback.

I think the highlight of everyone’s evening was a certain trivia hostess’ inability to pronounce the word “pitched” correctly, thereby asked the crowd how old a certain baseball player was when he “pissed” his final game. Oh, good times. My players laughed long and hard at me… I mean, WITH me. They were laughing with me, right? Sigh.

Also playing on Friday we had 3’s Company, I’m Hungry, Campers, Rico Suave and Ultimate Team.

Old Chicago in Superior had an ENORMOUS crowd of people for Trivia on Friday night. 17 teams participated for beer and awesome Old Chicago gift certificates but, as you know, there can be only one true trivia champ. Tonight’s amazing winner was Last Place, one of our regular players. They narrowly beat out Dr. Evil’s Brain in a tie-breaker for the game winner. So close, so smart!

Dr. Evil’s Brain was our Round One AND Round Two winner, so they got plenty of prize beer. Don’t feel too bad for them!

Also playing on this huge, crazy night were Sandy Cervix, Meanies, BJ, Just Smile and Nod, Spearheads (feat. Justin Bieber), Last Place, Dr. Evil’s Brain, Cataclysmic, Know Nothings, PZ&J, The Mob, Simpsons, Great Gambini, Paul and the Wampoles, Lone Wolf, Bonder Jams and Team American (*bleep* yeah!).

I’m guessing that most of my trivia regulars had stayed up all night watching the Royal Wedding, because we had Royal Boobs and I Saw Kate’s Underpants placing at the top of hte pack for trivia on Friday night at Old Chicago in Superior. Last Place won Round One, Royal Boobs took Round Two with Last Place winning the game and Royal Boobs narrowly beating out Urival Glove in a tie-breaker for Second Place.

Also playing we had Gwar Cupcake, Craven Moorehead, Ouch My Nuggets!, MOD, Tin Caps, Her Mouth is Like a Furnace and The Spearheads.

OC Superior: Happy Birthday… Team Its My Birthday! April 18, 2011

I just love my players up at Old Chicago in Superior. This was a great Friday night (as per usual) with five, count ’em, FIVE teams showing off their big brains and ending up in the tie-breaker for Round One. Its My Birthday, Tulo-Git (2 Quit), Formerly Formally Princess Poof, Sheenola and Last Place fought valiantly for the win (and by “fought valiantly,” I do mean “wrote numbers on pieces of paper) but Last Place took the pitcher of beer.

Round Two went to Sheenola, who always knows all kinds of stuff about stuff. Seriously, I’m pretty sure the guy is a millionaire in OC gift certificates.

There was a THREE WAY TIE for winner of the game, so it was all down to the tie-breaker. The closest team would get the First Prize, next closest would take Second and third… would get nothing. Aw, damn! The win went to Sheenola, second went to Tulo-Git (2 Quit) and poor Last Place got nothing but a high-five from the trivia host.

Also playing we had Team It’s My Birthday (Happy Birthday!), No Teeth on Tips, Lone Ranger and IKnow More Than You.

Due to an unforeseen incident involving my iphone (um, I dropped it and it broke), I wasn’t able to get any pictures of my players on Friday night. Trust me, though, they are all very attractive and photogenic people. Rowr.

Anyway, the trivia competition at Old Chicago in Superior is getting fiercer and fiercer every week! These guys are like tigers, if tigers knew random facts about Sports, Geography and People. Playing on Friday night, we had Last Place, Graveyard of Ale, Sno Flake, Hippies with Guns, Urinal Glove, Worse Than Last Week, Violent Torpedo of Truth, That’s What She Said and I Wish This Microphone Was….

Round One went to Violent Torpedo of Truth who took it by a huge margin. Things got closer in Round Two, which was a tie-breaker between Worse Than Last Week (who were actually doing WAY better this week than they were last week!), Violent Torpedo of Truth, That’s What She Said and I Wish This Microphone Was… with the win going to That’s What She Said.

The winner of the game was I Wish This Microphone Was A… with Violent Torpedo of Truth coming in Second in a grand finale tie-breaker. w00t!

Big night at Old Chicago in Superior on Friday! We had a record of seven, count ’em SEVEN, teams participating in our Round One tie-breaker! Talk about a lot of geniuses up there in Superior…

Competing for the Round One Pitcher o’ Beer were Puse, Sheen the Monkey, Stupid People Clap, Breeeeeeet, Bar, Last Place and Andrew & the Beard. It was close… well, no. It wasn’t close. Everyone was WAY low on their guesses, but the least low was Andrew & the Beard!

Round Two was a four way tie between Puse, Sheen the Monkey, Stupid People Clap and Last Place and this time Pusewere our big winners.

Don’t be too sad for Last Place or Sheen the Monkeythough… they took Second and First Place overall for the game. Good playing, boys!

Also playing on Friday were Climbing the Ranks, Dr. Monkey, Team Name Here, Ramsand Lone Ranger.

My players at Old Chicago in Superior may not have known a lot about infomercial gurus, but most of them were Arrested Development fans, so a George Bluth/Cornballer answer submitted by Urinal Cake sparked a lot of AD quoting and chicken dances. It was pretty cool.

Ok, down to business. Round One was dominated by On Tour With Charlie (formerly known as the Monkey). Round Two came down to a tie-breaker between Urinal Glove and Hole Family with Urinal Glove for the win. Hole Family ended up taking the game and I have to comment on their *insane* quickness. Those guys freakin’ sprinted their answers up to me before I’d even finished reading the questions. Wow.

Also playing we had Busted Bracketz, Four Times the Steak (I don’t know what that means, but it sounds delicious), Last Place (who demonstrated ALL of the Arrested Development chicken dances. It was amazing. I so wish my phone had video capabilies to do these guys justice…), No Fly Zoners, Urinal Cake, World Team, Hole Family, Holla, and Charlie Sheen School of Winning.

I kinda expected there to be a couple of teams named after Charlie “Capt. Crazy” Sheen, but was very surprised at TWO teams whose names involved urinals? Weird. I love my teams šŸ™‚
