We had a great time with SUMMER SLAM! and we thank everyone who played. 35 teams, all of them trashing JGT in the chat room while praising Carl. Jerks. Our finals were an instant classic, as Smells Like Quarantine Spirit emerged with a thrilling overtime win over Boyz II Menehune. Lambda Lambda Lambda finished in 3rd, a single point behind the top two. Here are the final scores:
This week, to wrap up the JGT SUMMER SLAM, we honor those who ALMOST made it to the top. We honor those who won the pennant, but lost the World Series. People who won their primary, but lost the general election. Couldn’t quite pull off the win in some crappy reality show? We’ll see ya on this week’s quiz! Should be a fun quiz.
And then, on Sunday, we wrap it up with the SUMMER SLAM Main Event! We’ll have more details tomorrow.
This week, we celebrate the first meal of the day at quizzo. If you’d like to play and aren’t a part of the SUMMER SLAM, you can sign up here. See ya this week!

On Sunday night, Carl, J Michael, and JGT counted down our 51 teams until we got to #1. It was a fun discussion. We’ll do it again soon. If you don’t want to hear us talking quizzo minutiae you can see the standings right here. But who are you kidding, you want to hear us talking quizzo minutiae.
Too much work at quizzo last week, so we had to get back to, as my son calls it, “brelaxin'”. Questions about amusement parks, lakes, beaches, hiking, playing cards, etc. But don’t let the name fool you, this week’s quiz will be no pleasure cruise. We’re up to the sixth week of the tourney, so time for us to tighten up the questions a bit. See ya this week!

The Cool Cats and Kittens have moved into the lead of SUMMER SLAM! with Walmart Meat not far behind. This week things get interesting, as we’ll be throwing out the lowest scores moving forward. As of now, Carl and I are preparing to host a show this coming weekend to discuss our leaderboard. Stay tuned for local listings. This week’s theme is Leisure Week.
Here ya go, our scores heading into week 5. Cool Cats and Kittens have moved up into being tied for the lead with Walmart Meat, and Zodiac Killer and Smells Like Quarantine Spirit are nipping at their heels. Down the board a bit, Hangin’ Tough is doing just that, holding the 30th and final slot, but only by .25 of a point. Probably the most surprising team on the outside looking in are the Branch Covidians, who finished in the Final Four in April Madness, and are tied for 31st.
In the lead up to our big Office quiz on Sunday, our theme this week is professionals. Because if there’s one thing we pride ourselves on here at JGT Quizzo, it’s professionalism. LOL, just kidding. So expect questions about various occupations: from teachers to bartenders to used car salesmen. We’ll see ya this week!
Here they are, folks, our scores after two weeks of Summer Slam. Expired Walmart Meat has the lead, followed closely by the Zodiac Killer$. Cool Cats and Kittens are third, newcomers Quarantine Spirit are 4th, and World Cup winners Underground Bard are in 5th.
