Big night of sports action in PhillY: Eagles take on the Steelers, Taney takes on Chicago, and you have your last chance to earn an invite to Sunday’s big event. Action starts at 6:30 at Industry. Our usual chicanery…French Fry Faceoff, Name That Tune, Hellcat Female Mud Wrestling and $3 craft beers. And I’m telling you folks, the burgers at $8 are the best deal in town (and better than Shake Shack. There, I said it.)

On to Bards at 9 p.m. $3 Lagers and rumors that Jesters of Tortuga will not be there. See ya tonight!

Quizzo Tonight

Action kicks off tonight at the Vous at 6:15 p.m. $3 Corona Lights and $2 Saranac Shandies. On to Black Sheep at 8:15 pm. Get there early! I really don’t know what to expect with this Taney-mania going on, so be sure to get there early and get yourself a table. See ya tonight!

Question of the Week

CRAZY HORSE MONUMENT

Begun in 1948 by sculptor Korzak Ziolkowski, a memorial dedicated to this man is still under construction. Who is he?

Wildcard Week Begins Tonight!

Action starts at North Star at 7 p.m. On to Sidecar at 9:30 p.m. A great opportunity to earn yourself an invite to Sunday’s Big Event, and these are both very winnable quizzes. I am back in town tonight, so let’s do it to it.

Final JGTSI Scores

summerquiz

Here ya go. We are all wrapped up, and here are our scores. Teams in yellow in line for a bonus prize, teams in orange made the cut. Teams in green are on the bubble (if any teams ahead of them decline their invite, they’ll get one). And if you’re in blue, don’t worry. You’ve got one last chance this week. It’s wild card week. Every team that wins gets an automatic invite.

As for the event itself, those who made the cut will get an invite soon. It will go down this Sunday at 5:30 and feature great specials and live music. Details coming soon.

Only One Quiz This Week

Sorry folks, meant to post this yesterday but forgot to. You can only play once this week. Only one quiz. We’ll be back to two quizzes next week. Also, quick reminder…final quiz at the Oval is this Saturday at 4 p.m.

Quizzo News and Notes

jgtlogo

After becoming part-owner of a new business and having a child within a two week time frame in December, the past eight months have been a complete whirlwind. So next week I am taking off and spending some time with my fam.

I leave you in good hands. The Sandman will do the quizzes all week. No theme, just a regular quiz.

He will be hosting the final two quizzes at the Oval. We’ve had a lot of fun with those over the past few weeks. If you haven’t checked out the beer garden there, I highly recommend it. Quizzos will be at 4 p.m.

The schedule for next week’s quizzes is over on the right. I won’t be posting on the blog next week so just let the schedule be your guide.

And I want to thank everyone who donated last week to the Dude Hates Cancer. We raised over $1500 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! Awesome work guys. Whenever we do these Quizzo for the Causes, you all really toe the line. You’re a bunch of freaks and weirdos and nerds, but you’re still good people in my book. Talk to ya soon!

Sports Shorts

Just got a new batch of Eagles gear in at the store, located on 137 South 13th Street, between Walnut and Sansom. If you plan on buying Eagles gear for the upcoming season, I hope you’ll grab it from us. We’ve got a terrific selection of great looking shirts and hats. And we’re currently running a sale on this throwback Eagles hat. $25 and free shipping. You won’t find a better deal than this online for a hat of this quality. Just use the code “hat” when you checkout to get free shipping.

I also wrote a piece in Philly Mag this week about why the Phillies stink and we need to try to get the A’s back in town. Best thing I’ve written in a while. Worth a read if you’re a baseball fan.

Speaking of baseball, let’s go Taney Dragons! The Philly Little League team has advanced to the finals of their region and with a win on Sunday would advance to Williamsport. Even cooler? Their best pitcher is a girl. Several members of the team are on the Anderson Monarchs, who people in the G-Ho area are well aware of, as they play on that beautiful field at 18th and Fitzwater. The regional final will be on ESPN2 on Sunday at 6 p.m., so be sure to tune in and root on Philly!

JGTSI Scores With One Week Left To Play

summerquiz

Here ya go, your scores with one week left to play. If you need points, I’ve got good news, I just posted a physical challenge on facebook…up to 5 points for posting pics of yourself in the 90s. As for the Big Event, it will be taking place on August 24th at the Field House. More details coming soon. We’ll wrap up scoring next week, then have our wild card week the week before.
