It was a day of many first this past Sunday May 19th, as Quizmaster Cup, now in its ninth installment, made it's debut at Water Street's Red Rock Saloon. (And don't forget, there's more photos - about 100 of 'em - at our Facebook page!)

And with that in mind, Quizmaster had determined that it would be a COUNTRY-themed event, and the hosts certainly came dressed to impress for the big day of quizzing....


Don't f#@k with these Quizmasters!

And as with previous Quizmaster Cup showdowns, we weren't short of prizes as the trophy baked in the hot lights at the foot of the stage...


As you can see, the BOX OF BRITISHNESS (full of goodies and other crap from across the pond) was up for grabs - our best dressed team would take that home at the end of the day!

And additionally, we had a TON of booze to give away...


Each team would get a bottle of Smirnoff vodka or Southern Comfort, just for showing up!


And we had 5 cases of Coors Light to give away too! That would go to our finalists and winners of the "Drink While You Think" Competition!

And with over 100 of Milwaukee's finest queeps in attendance, it promised to be a battle for the ages!!

And while not all teams were dressed in their finest country attire, most teams did partake in the fun dress-up, as 10 points would be awarded to every group that were sporting "countries", however they wanted to interpret it...


That was former best-dressed winners, Squad 666, who put a fun spin on the country theme! Nice work guys!

In more stable (no pun intended) attire, five-time Quizmaster Cup champions, and strong favorites going into the event, Miltown Junks even took the time to grow mustaches for the big day...


Howdy, indeed!

And we welcomed in the gang from My Dixie Wrecked, who were also looking the bees knees on what was their Quizmaster Cup debut....


They got their fair share of booze too!

Anyway, the Quizmaster Cup got underway around 2pm with a NEW "Comical Commercials" video round, in which teams had to identify the products or brands shown in the video clip...


And for those who might have missed it, the answer shortly followed...


What a way to start the event!

That was followed by the first "Drink While You Think" bracket, in which team's representative  were asked a Family-Feud style question! The first question asked "Besides New York, name a city with a large population?"

Drink While You Think!!!


One female emerged from that first bracket of drinking, moving on to the final four later on!

In other news, we welcomed in Red Rock regulars and front-row queeps Scrambled Eggs, who are always having a good time at the Cup....


We also welcomed back the long-time crew from You Fucked Up, You Trusted Us...


Ranga Rumblers were also dressed to the nines...


And one of the other strong contenders for victory, Pluckers, had an interesting assortment of costumes among them...


They would win the Milwaukee Rep tickets following their response to the Caption Contest...


Teams had to list a caption in the box. Some of our faves included:

  • Oh Georgie, stuck between Iraq and a hard place again
  • I prefer bareback
  • 'Merica, dealing with bull shit since 1776
  • I hope Barbara doesn't mind a four-way
  • 8 seconds, try 8 years!

But the winning caption was...

"Still better than being between Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld"

Elsewhere, the gang from Triviavenagers were perhaps a dark horse (no pun intended, again!) in the running for silverware on the day.... 


Drink While You Think bracket two ensued, and more guzzling commenced...


We also welcomed in long-time Quizmaster veterans (from back in the day at the original Britinn), Dead Babies Will Save Michael J Fox...


 Great to see them after a long sabbatical!

And in a Quizmaster Cup first, the QUEEL Round featured, adding some extra zest to the scoring...


We also said 'ello to Perfect Pints, one of the few teams not dressed up! Shocker...


But they drank a lot, and were tonguing each other apparently, so we don't care.

Runners-up from Quizmaster Cup VIII, Risky Quizness were hoping to go one better this time around...


Also, another teams that was dressed fantastically were the Firefoxes....


Throughout the day we encouraged queeps to post and tag their best photo(s) from the event, with our favorite one winning Milwaukee Brewers tickets!


Very creative stuff. We like the black and white!

In other non-dress-up news, Team Low Brow International were ruing the day they decided not to get their cowboy boots out, because if they did they would have finished in the top three...


Something tells us country really isn't their thing!

Anyway, the showed rolled on, with a quick-fire lightning round, a couple of wager categories and the final massive video round...



Two "What happens next?" questions ensued plus the "greatest movie insults" montage, with the answers as follows...


And while the hosts tallied up the final scores, we still had a "DRINK WHILE YOU THINK" final four to contest, with five cases of beer to dish out!

The four finalists lined-up, ready to neck their second pint of the afternoon...

 
 The question asked... "Name one of the seven dwarfs?"

Drink While You Think!....


Paul of Squad 666 answered "Dopey," which happened to be the top answer....


He walked away with two cases of Coors Light, and wasn't gonna stop to pick 'em up...


The three other finalists did take home a case each for their efforts, so plenty of booze went around!

And so on to the big results! After all was said and done - nine rounds, two video categories, over 150 points up for grabs, the crew from Fuckin Wolverine notched up a massive 143 points, and took their second championship since Quizmaster Cup  IV in 2010...


Even Quizmaster Ryan W. got in on the act at the end....


Fantastic work from them!

We want to thank all our queeps for coming out for a truly memorable day at Red Rock! Check our Facebook page for even more pictures from the event! We'll be formulating plans for a MASSIVE QUIZMASTER CUP X (set for this fall) very soon!

Until the next Cup Milwaukee, drink while you think...
