Super Bowl Bound!

Had a blast at Dock Street on Sunday, watching the Eagles crush the Niners and punch their ticket to the Super Bowl. We’ll be doing lots of fun stuff at Shibe Sports to help celebrate the win, so stay tuned. That includes a book signing with Ray Didinger at our store in Wayne and a Super Bowl Squares fundraiser. To find out what we’re up to, be sure to follow us on Instagram.

Here’s the latest Friday Five…be sure to sign up for it if you’re not already! Also, I just did a short write up about Jerry Blavat in Billy Penn. You can read that here.

And we’re headed for an exciting finish in the Winter Freeze at Founding Fathers. 10 teams still in the running, with three teams separated by one point! Here are the current standings. Going to be a wild finish Tuesday night! (Even if you’re not in the running, you’re still welcome to play the regular quiz at Founding Fathers. Hope to see ya this week!

Winter Freeze Standings

We’re through three weeks of the Winter Freeze, and we certainly have some interesting scenarios. For one thing, a team has to play 3 times to be eligible for the title. So the Inturnts, who currently hold the lead, have only played once. Jake and Josh, who are currently 4th, and Reverse Cowgirls, are 8th, have also only played once. If they miss either of the next two weeks, they’re officially eliminated. Low Expectations, Gus Chiggins, and Jeremy Badtimes are 2nd, 5th, and 7th, respectively. They’ve all played twice, and by playing just once in the next two weeks, will officially be in the running. 7th Place, National Classy Day, Medium Rare Chicken, and the Little Guys have all played three times, so any times they play in the next two weeks will simply give them an opportunity to drop their lowest score. To see the full standings, and where your team stands, just go here to the spreadsheet.

  1. INTURNTS 80
  2. LOW EXPECTATIONS 77
  3. 7TH PLACE 72.3
  4. JAKE AND JOSH 70
  5. GUS CHIGGINS 67.5
  6. NATIONAL CLASSY DAY 67.3
  7. JEREMY BADTIMES 62
  8. REVERSE COWGIRLS 60
  9. MEDIUM RARE CHICKEN 59
  10. LITTLE GUYS 58.3

The Founding Fathers Winter Freeze Begins Tonight!

Kicking off the New Year with a fun little tourney at Founding Fathers. Here’s how it’s going to work, for teams who want to participate:

  • It lasts 5 weeks, between now and January 31st
  • No cost to enter; if you play 3 or more times between today and January 31st, you’ll be automatically entered
  • It’s a regular quiz (if you only play once this month, it’s totally fine, you just won’t be entered into the Freeze)
  • Over those 5 weeks, we’ll take teams top 3 scores and average them together.
  • If you play 5 times, we take your top 3 scores, and if you play 3 times we take all 3 scores. So if you miss a week, no problem.
  • After the first 3 weeks, we’ll start posting the scores here.
  • We’ll do our scoring online (much easier to track that way).
  • If you play, use the same team name (or one very similar) each week.
  • Winning team will win a flatscreen TV (one per team, not per person, LOL, how you decide which team member is the winner of it is up to you) and a $100 gift card (on top of your weekly winnings). 2nd Place will get $50, and 3rd will win assorted prizes.

Great way to kick off the year and have fun doing it. Action starts tonight at 8 PM. Hope to see ya there for our first quiz of 2023!

This Week: The War on Quizmas!

It’s back, and more sinister than you ever imagined! We’re taking aim at Santa Claus, Christmas Carols, Ebenezer Scrooge, and the Hallmark Channel as the War on Quizmas gets underway this week. (And this quiz isn’t just for gentiles, as we’ll be battling Hanukkah too.)

Best chance to get a win? Definitely Loco Pez. Though Founding Fathers has been a little light the last couple of weeks, could be a chance to sneak a win there. Dock Street is pure mayhem. Deli at Dwell and Birra both very winnable quizzes. Here’s your schedule for the War. I better see ya at quizzo this week: that’s an order, soldier!

Hey fam, we’re back at it again this week, with our last “regular” quiz before our War on Quizmas quiz next week and our year in review quiz the week after. There’s no quiz at Loco Pez this week, as they’re having their employee party tonight. (I’m also going to attend the Wu-Tang dinner tonight with Koob, will let you know how that goes!) But everything else is on as planned. Here’s our lineup:

Our Annual Toy Drive is Live!

For a variety of reasons our annual toy drive launched a bit later than usual, and we’ve got lots of kids whose Christmas wishes we need to make come true this week. Here’s how it works: go to this sheet, fill out your name next to the toy you want to get. Mail the package to the following address:

(Child’s Name) c/o Matt Pillischer

1606 Colleen Court

Norristown, PA 19401

If you’d rather pick it up at a store and drop the toy off, you can drop it off at Shibe Sports at 13th and Walnut. Let’s make it happen for the children of Philadelphia!
