Sports Quiz at Peter’s 19th Hole!

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009
Silly me. In my haste to complete material for tonight’s Revenge of the Nerds academic round, I forgot to remind you that the lunar quizzery, as always, will be at Peter’s 19th Hole at 7:00. I’m sure you could have extrapolated this for yourselves . . . however, figuring out where and when the quiz is to be held really shouldn’t be part of a trivia night. So, to reiterate:

TONIGHT (Saturday, August 1st) @ 7:00
Hosted by ShanRock
Peter’s 19th Hole @ 5701 NE Fremont
Teams of five (or fewer); prizes for the champs

And, just to have made this extra Email worth your while, I am going to share a hilarious video I just saw for the first time . . . good news – PacMan lives, and the French ARE funny!

I hope to see you athletic aficionados tonight!

JV Sports Trivia Tonight!

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009
From Day One of ShanRock’s Triviology, “The Token Sports Question” has been a staple feature of my quizzery. But now the day has finally come for sports fans to rule the roost – tonight’s (Saturday, August 1st) lunar quiz is all about Junior Varsity Sports Trivia for Benchwarmers! I will be your host, but Brad of JV Sports Trivia Night (held fortnightly at The Tanker) is the author of the questions. The quiz will feature many of his signature rounds: This Week in Sports (athletic current events), The Mendoza Line (general sports), The Ocho (unusual sports), Off the Court (personal lives of athletes), The Presidential Challenge (competitive eating – I promise it’s nothing gross . . . we decided against mayonnaise), and a “Token Academic Round” . . . Revenge of the Nerds (the lowest scoring team chooses the theme)! We also have JV Sports Trivia to thank for those movie passes to Funny People & 500 Days of Summer which I gave out last week – thanks for sharing, guys!

This Tuesday, Trivia Jock Scott will be your host at Sewickly’s, as I will be making the trivia at a fundraiser for the Democratic Party of Oregon, who will be throwing a Birthday Bash for Obama! This free event runs from 6 – 11, and includes DJs, a rapper, a raffle to win sweet prizes, and a chance financially contribute just by drinking beer. I will host a Triviology quiz from about 7:30 – 9; $5 donation per person to play; prizes for the champs. Come join the fun at Backspace!

I failed to get a picture of the champs, however I did capture the lovely ladies of Bea Arthur’s Dick In A Box sharing a beverage.
