Quizzo Tonight

We kick it off at Lo SPiedo at 5:30, as Carl B Sure makes the magic happen on the deck. I’ll be at the Vous at 6:15 (roughly) and at Founding Fathers at 8:30. I’m hoping that bro team who took out my ipod and replaced it with their own last week so they could play some Akon, then shouted out the answer of a question about Entourage (because OF COURSE they did), then started mumbling on my mic when I was done, well I hope they sit somewhere different this week.

Quizzo Tonight

Interesting quiz tonight. I think you’ll like it. We start at O’Neals at 8 p.m. Meanwhile, Carl will be holding it down at Alla Spina at 8 as well. On to Tap House at 10:15. Hope to see ya tonight!

High Drama and Double OT at the JGTSI

IMG_7512

It was a dark and stormy night. Inside Alla Spina, 15 teams were going head to head to determine our 7th Annual Summer Invite champion. Among the teams were perennial powerhouses Duane’s World, Jesters of Tortuga, and JGTSPI champs The CGA. There were also several teams making their first majors appearance, including Fraid Not, Putin on the Ritz, and Teflon Don.

Things got interesting in Round Two, as we had a “Name that Candle Scent” round (funny that so many teams missed “unscented”). Round Four was a music round that stumped plenty of good teams, and headed into the final round, there was the potential for the biggest upset in a Major of all time…the Industry house team held the lead after 4 rounds, though Duane’s World was nipping at their heels.

panaramoa

But in round 5, Imaginary Pablo and the Goat, 12 down when the round began, scored 50 of a possible 55 points, and an insanely tight contest finished with them tied with Duane’s World atop the leaderboard at 126, with CGA falling by a single point, and Tempura House falling by a mere two points for the 2nd straight time in an invitational.

So we went into overtime. We had had a John Mayer question in the music round, so our question was, “How old is John Mayer?” Imaginary Pablo guessed 39. Duane’s World guessed 37. He’s 38. On to double OT. Our double OT question was “What is the population of Hawaii?” Duane’s World guessed 1.7 mill. Imaginary Pablo guess 1.5. The correct answer was 1.4, and we had a winner. Imaginary Pablo had won their first major.

In addition to the trivia, we also had three terrific sets from Riley O’Reilly and No One You Know. (We officially changed the band name midway through the event.) A very fun night all around. Thanks everyone for coming out. Scores are below.

  1. Imaginary Pablo 126
  2. Duane’s World 126
  3. CGA 125
  4. Tempura House 124
  5. Putin on the Ritz 121

Han-van-Meegeren-fake

This man studied exhaustively for 6 years to produce 17th century art forgeries; he sold numerous fake masterpieces for millions, most famously Supper at Emmaus. His fakes are now worth a fortune. Who was he?

3 Simple Ideas That Will Make the Olympics 100 Times Better


It’s been a fun Olympics, from watching Phelps swim to Bolt run to American swimmers in brawls at gas stations. But there are ways to make it even better. And a big part of that is getting rid of a bunch of worthless shit events in the Olympics and replacing them with things that are cool. I mean, seriously, an some 60 year old hedge fund manager from London who can make his sailboat go fast gets the same medal that Bolt and Phelps get? Ridiculous. Somebody who makes a horse stand still gets a gold medal? Absurd. Here then, are some sports, that should be taken out and what they should be replaced with.

TAKE OUT-Sailing. Nobody cares. Seriously.

PUT IN-Breakdancing. Have you ever been to Battery Park and not seen a crowd gather around the breakdancers? People love breakdancing, and those dudes are sure as hell athletes (unlike sailors. Sailors!) This came to me when watching the floor routine the other night. Some moves very similar to breakdancing, but breakdancing has much better music.

TAKE OUT-Dressage. Good Lord. Nothing more captivating on TV than watching a horse not move.

PUT IN- Horse diving. Who wouldn’t watch this?

414987266_90688993f7_bTAKE OUT- Golf. I mean, seriously, why did they add this? “Gee whiz, what could we do to make the Olympics more boring? Oh I know, we’ll add golf!”

PUT IN- American Football. Now we can settle it once and for all: who’s better at football, us or Equatorial Guinea?

I am pretty sure that 100% of you agree with all of those points above. Because they’re right.
