Double Points at Big Money Tuesday!

Action starts at O’Neals at 8 p.m. Double points in the JGTSI, and it’s anybody’s ballgame. Things have been quiet there the past couple of weeks, so it’s a great opportunity to earn some points. $3.50 margaritas and $5 burritos.

On to Tap House at 10:15 p.m. A literature-themed wild card round and a very negative music round. Double points in the JGTSI at both bars (unless the Jesters win, in which case it’s half points). See ya tonight!

 

Question of the Week

d3497dd0c203d6e315fe2494eb4fe78dWhat women’s baseball team was founded in Philadelphia in 1922, and took an ill-fated tour of Japan in 1925?

JGTSI Scores After 5 Weeks

summerquiz

Here are your scores after 5 weeks. We’re now in the thick of it. Five weeks down, four to go. Still time to get your team in the mix, but you better do it soon if you want to earn an invite to the Big Event on August 24th.

Your best chances to win are once again at bars where I’m giving double points again this week. O’Neals and Industry. And remember, you can play twice in a week. I do one quiz for Monday-Tuesday and another for Wednesday-Thursday. So you’ve got two chances per week to get on the board. I’m also gonna post more trivia on the facebook page this week.

Allagash Beer Tasting, Presentation by CSN’s Sarah Baicker Next Friday

sarah-baicker-hockey

We’ve got a great event going down next Friday at Shibe Sports. We’re gonna kick it off with a beer tasting by the lovely Ginger, who is now a rep for Allagash. While enjoying some of their awesome beers (for free, you cheap bastards¬†frugal consumers!), Comcast Sportsnet reporter Sarah Baicker will talk about being a woman in a male dominated profession, and also about a pretty fascinating team that used to call Philly home in the 1920s, the Philadelphia Bobbies. We’ll also be unveiling our new Reggie White shirt at the event. Beer starts pouring at 6 p.m. Hope to see you there!

JGT to Host Quizzo at the Oval on Saturday

eakins-oval

The Eakins Oval is going to have a bunch of fun activities going on this summer, including quizzo, which I’ll be hosting Saturday at 4 p.m. There’s a beer garden, Philly’s best food trucks, and a reggae band after the quiz! And yes, you can earn JGTSI points at the quiz. Hope to see ya there!

Double Points at French Fry Thursday Tonight!

frenchfries

Oh what the hell, let’s give away a ton of points tonight. In addition to our normal insanity with French Fry Thursday and Name That Tune for Candy, we’re gonna go double points at both venues. A terrific chance for your squad to get up high on the JGTSI scoreboard. First of all, the Industry is probably the most winnable quiz on the scene, with no dominant team. Action starts at 6:30 p.m. Terrific burgers and $3 craft brews. Secondly, there are rumors that the Jesters of Tortuga will not be playing tonight at the Bards, so that makes it anybody’s ballgame. $3 Lagers. Action starts at 9 p.m. And this is a different quiz than the one on Monday and Tuesday, so if you played then, you are welcome to play again. Let’s rock the house tonight. Boom!

Question of the Week

Charles Trenet

This French artist wrote “La Mer”. Years later, Bobby Darin would change some of the lyrics and make it “Beyond the Sea”. Who was the French artist who, legend has it, wrote the song in ten minutes?

JGTSI Scores After Four Weeks

summerquiz

Here are the scores after 4 weeks of the JGTSI. A few things worth noting:

-this week at O’Neals will be a double points week. 10 points for winning, 6 for 2nd, 2 for 3rd. A lot of parity at O’Neals, so a great chance to earn points.

-your other best shot to get a win? Probably Industry. Pretty much a different winning team every week.

-I will also be posting trivia questions on the JGT Quizzo Facebook page for points.

-The Big Event will be held on August 24th. So there are 4 more weeks of the regular season and then a wild card week before the big event. Still time to make a move but you better make sure your team gets on the board this week.

On to Bards at 9 p.m. $3 lagers and a chance to knock off those bastard Jesters. And we’ll have French Fry Faceoff and Name That Tune for candy at both spots. Hope to see ya tonight!

Question of the Week

Quizzo Tonight!

The Sandman hosts tonight at Industry at 6:30 p.m. and Bards at 9 p.m. $3 beers at both spots, and Jesters of Tortuga will not be playing tonight, so it’s anybody’s ballgame at Bards. And Industry is always up for grabs. Two great opportunities to score points in the JGTSI. And remember, there is a new physical challenge on the facebook page if you’re trying to earn bonus points and get your team into the Big Event on August 24th.

JGTSI Scores and New Physical Challenge

summerquiz

Here are your JGTSI V scores after two weeks (these do NOT include this week’s results). The bonus points are for teams who had members come out for our Grand Opening at Shibe (if you made it out to one of the events and I didn’t include you, just let me know.) I’ve just posted a new physical challenge over on the JGT Quizzo facebook page. It’s an easy way for your team to score extra points. As for the Invitational itself, it will be on Sunday, August 24th at Field House. And still time to earn points at this week’s quizzes.
