Ana Taylor-Joy and Jeff’s Mother’s a Whore

Gen XYZ makes their first appearance of the season and are the home team after their Cinderella story run in the Dozen Tournament last season. The Experts (1-0) are the rare road team and Brandon is perplexed. Also, sup Fran?

Rd 1: Shoutout to NBA Champion Timofey Mozgov. Mozgov didn’t travel. The Experts get on the board first, 1-0, with Memphis’ signing of Chandler Parsons. Memphis has literally never signed anyone else in free agency. Ever.

Rd 2: Big to-do in celebrity mashups. Large came up with the answer Ana Taylor-Joy. However, her name is Anya Taylor-Joy. Jeff DeLowe did not award the points and blamed the judges. Large called Jeff’s mother a whore, the Experts missed their question and we moved on to round 3.

Rd 3: Naismith Award questions for college basketball. Frank Mason won it in 2017 even through Josh Hart should have won it and he was robbed because he played at Villanova and Villanova is in the Big East and the Big East is a Fox affiliate and ESPN has too much pull with the national writers and voters and all of those award are shams. Not salty about that still. Andrew Bogut won in 2005 which Brandon answered correctly to go up 2-0.

Rd 4: A couple of music questions from the ’80s takes away any help from Jake and Fran. It was an old guy matchup in this round. Large won it handedly, taking both questions (Eddie Money, KC & Sunshine Band) to tie the score at 2-2.

Rd 5: Unfortunately, that would be as close as Gen XYZ was to leading the entire match. The Experts went on a 7-0 starting with round 5. Gen XYZ had Dwayne Bowe but gave it to the Experts and the Experts landed on Jamal Lewis after some discussion. 4-2 after the round and it would get worse.

Rd 6 Niche: Gen XYZ and Jake missed on college logos but caught a break when PFT missed a question in ska music. No points.

BONUS: I’m over here screaming at my computer for a team to keep listing Toy Story movies. There’s four of them and they’re all on the list. I mean, Lion King wasn’t a bad answer, but it cost Gen XYZ. Two more points to the Experts to make it 6-2.

Rd 7: And the Experts pour it on here in the seventh. Classic college football round for Brandon and PFT to take advantage of and they did. Conference USA and the American Athletic Conference with a double to boost the lead to seven, 9-2.

Rd 8: Gen XYZ didn’t give up despite the big deficit and got a point with Lady Bird in the movie category. Fran got the point right back for the Experts with Dunkirk. Not sure where PFT was going with the guy dancing, but that’s why you have teammates. 10-3.

Rd 9: Large fuckin’ knows his treaties. Gen XYZ doubled up and got Sevres correct to make it 10-5 and took the steal to make the game respectable, 10-6. He old, but still impressive. Gen XYZ ain’t here no bell.

Rd 10: Round 10 was the Olympics and what country an athlete represented. The first woman looked like a Jamaican sprinter. Nobody knew who she was, but Gen XYZ got it right. Mo Farrah on the other hand is a legend. Call it England. Call it Great Britain. Call it the UK. It’s all the same to me. Both teams correct to make the score 11-7 going to the final two rounds.

Rd 11: This was tough to watch. Gen XYZ had 1+1, but they couldn’t figure out the answer was 2. Shockingly, the Experts were too dumb to realize it too. And I only know James Van Der Beek as Johnny Moxin in Varsity Blues. I give it a 10, a fuckin’ 10.

Rd 12: The Experts closed out the match in the 11th so Gen XYZ’s final point with the Philippines was just to make them feel better about themselves. 11-8.

Personally, it was a rough match for me. I got 4 answers correct (Chandler Parsons, Frank Mason, Andrew Bogut, the AAC, England) I gave myself half a point for Parsons and half for the AAC. I’m going to stop watching the matches in real time so I can pause the match. The Experts answer pretty quickly on some of these.

The Experts go to 2-0 on the season, but remain #3 in my power rankings. Gotta put away teams when you have a big lead early.
