Young people across the country are starting to head back to school this week and next, and so we are going to be doing a “Back to School” theme at quizzo this week. All questions will be about school. We’re also partnering with the PPEHRC again, and I would GREATLY appreciate you guys bringing in some school supplies we can donate to local students in need. If you are not playing this week, but would still like to donate, we will have a donation box at Shibe Sports, and anyone who donates there will get $5 off anything in the store. I know we’ve got a giving group, and would love to present our friend Cheri Honkala with a large stash of school supplies. Thanks in advance, and I’ll see ya this week!
Alright kiddos, some of you may have noticed new quizmasters last night. Jam Master Phil will be hosting again tonight at the Vous and at Founding Fathers. I will be heading back tmrw and will host tmrw night (JMP will host at Birra.) No Question of the Week this week. See ya soon!
Who quit directing The Wizard of Oz so he could direct Gone With the Wind?
Hey gang, we’re kicking off our annual Dude Hates Cancer Fundraiser tonight. We’ll have raffle tickets for sale…$5 each or 6 for $20. Whoever wins the raffle will get 24 gift certificates to 24 of the best restaurants in Philadelphia. Basically free dinner twice a month for the next year. Not a bad deal. More importantly, all of the money raised goes to fight blood cancer. We’ve had a long relationship with these guys, they do a terrific job of raising money for a tremendous cause, and I am excited to work with them again this year.
Here’s a round from Sunday’s quiz at Heritage, the Hitchcock round.
I’ll give you the names of two stars, then give you a hint about the film title or at least part of the title that has nothing to do with the film. For example, if I said, “Carole Lombard and Robert Montgomery; Hint is Jaden’s parents.” You’d write down “Mr and Mrs. Smith.”
1. Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman. HINT: Ready to Die
2. Jimmy Stewart and John Dahl; HINT: you’ll find it in the game of Clue.
3. Ray Milland and Grace Kelly; HINT: technically it’s the number 6.
4. Jimmy Stewart, Doris Day; HINT: no one can ever accuse Trump of being this.
5. Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh; HINT: Sid Vicious
6. Jimmy Stewart, Kim Novak; HINT: it’s a problem in part of the vestibular system.
7. Rod Taylor, Tippi Hedren; HINT: you might hear Eagles fans discussing them.
8. Carie Grant, Eva Marie Saint; HINT: Little Kanye
9. Jimmy Stewart, Grace Kelly; HINT: you’d put your Calvin pissing on the Cowboys logo decal here.
10. Robert Donat, Madeline Carrol; HINT: 33 less than the Art Museum.

And of course we’ve got several oppurtunities to earn an invite this week at wild card week. Any team that wins earns an automatic invite to the event, going down this Sunday at Heritage.
What 2007 documentary was about two jump rope teams, the Bouncing Bulldogs and the Double Dutch Forces?
Here ya go, our final rankings from the JGTSI. Invites will be going out today. If you didn’t get an invite, there is still hope: any team that wins next week will get earn an automatic invite. I also know for a fact that a few teams currently on the bubble are almost certainly gonna get in.
Teams in orange have been invited, teams in green have accepted their invitation, teams in the blue are on the bubble.
Looking at scores of the past few weeks, your best bets to get a win appear to be O’Neals, City Tap House, and Birra. Good luck!
(There is one team I do not have contact info for: Jeff Sessions is a Goblin. If you see this, please shoot me a line at johnny at johnnygoodtimes.com and let me know if you can make it.)
