As you probably know, we host FREE team trivia each Tuesday (51st Street Speakeasy) and Thursday (O’Connell’s Irish Pub) night. If you ask us, it’s pretty fun. Here’s how it works:
• You gather a team of friends to play trivia. Your team can be as big or small as you want and will compete against other teams for cash prizes.
• We ask four rounds of questions. Each round has 10 general knowledge trivia questions. After those 4 rounds, we ask one final question. We call it Final Ogle.
• When everything is done — it usually ends around 10:15 — we pay cash prizes to the teams that finished first, second and third.
Anyway, each night we try to include a few Oklahoma-themed trivia questions. Since today is a holiday and things are slow on the internet, I thought I’d share some of these questions — along with the correct answers — with you. Check them out after the jump.
Well, college football season finally kicks off today in Oklahoma. OU fans are confident, OSU fans are optimistic and Tulsa fans exist somewhere, or so we’ve heard.
Anyway, I wanted to commemorate this special by day by posting a relevant 1990s music video, but I couldn’t think of anything. Instead, here’s a song that has nothing to do with this special day across the Sooner State.
• Someone sent us this picture of Emily Sutton, Sarah Libby and Danielle Vollmar. We heard they were taking the pic for an OKC Biz story about weathergirls. That should be an interesting article, especially when you consider Sarah Libby is leaving Channel 5 to work at Chesapeake and Danielle Vollmar will soon be leaving the green screen to be an anchor/ reporter on the KOKH morning show.
Last night I watched a college football game on TV and all was right with the world, readers. Granted, it was a game between Syracuse and Wake Forest, two schools that I thought only had basketball teams, but still—football! And if I’m not mistaken, there was a breeze yesterday, on September the first. So, it’s like fall is here. I mean, I’m wearing a hoodie and a scarf right now. Soon liquor store shelves will be full of pumpkin ale and I will be stealing Halloween candy from unsuspecting Trick-or-Treaters!
I’m sure you share this same enthusiasm with me as we enter this glorious Labor Day weekend. Let us celebrate the death of summer together, by braving the heat and ravaging sun this weekend.
Here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town.
I refuse to believe that I’m the only person that laughs hysterically when someone says “dutch oven.” My senior year of high school, I sat next to this kid named Larry in AP Government. Aside from having a huge crush on that guy, I adoringly listened to him tell me things about “dutch ovens”, “rusty trombones”, and various other ubiquitous items that are somehow dirty when they are uttered by a 17-year old boy. Anyway, I suppose our love wasn’t meant to be. I found the bearded, tattooed and pierced cupcake of my dreams. And also, I think Larry is a Mormon, which wouldn’t go well with my stimulant-filled lifestyle of debauchery.
Now, it’s my understanding that this little cook off is a competition between the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts and Campfire kids. I didn’t think these groups still existed. I mean, I thought they were pretty much underfunded and deemed irrelevant by modern parents and children. Though, now that I know that there will be a dutch oven cook off, I know for sure that these groups aren’t irrelevant and are still teaching the youth of today the skills they need to build character.
So the University of Oklahoma apparently commissioned a poll this spring to determine what college team Oklahomans cheer for. The results were released this morning and lit up twitter, with OU flacks highlighting the fact that about 3/4ths of Oklahomans cheer for the Sooners.
I think I can speak for all OU fans when I say, “SUCK IT OSU! WE WIN! THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN YOU! KNEEL BEFORE OUR GREAT NUMBERS! WE COMPRISE 77% OF THE PEOPLE IN THIS STATE BASED ON A STUDY OF 650 ADULTS WITH A MARGIN OF ERROR OF 3.8%!!! BOOMER!” Someone needs to put that on a sign, baby.
