And The Madness Begins



How is one person supposed to recap 2 trivia shows and watch 800 basketball games and find time to do the work that gives them a paycheck? I don’t know. Life is tough as hell.

Anyway, that massive basketball tournament starts today. If you’re anything like me, you’ve opted to go with the write-in option for the final four. If all goes well by the end of the day it will be just The Fordham Ram, The Kenyon Lords, Carthage Torchie and Gunrock the Mustang from UC-Davis in the final four. I have yet to ever win one of these bracket things.

You know who did win something recently? 3 Guys on a Fact Hunt. That’s right, they put up 85 points and walked out with a first place showing at the Up & Under on Tuesday night. That was just enough to top Moonbats, who ended with 83 and the Whispering Goat Whores who scored 69. Who Pooped in the Pool had a strong showing, or at least what is considered a strong showing for them, and ended the night with 64 points. Loose Shits AKA the Putin Pops were able to keep it together long enough to score 36, and Albus and Scorpius: The Cursed Couple  walked out after pulling down 14 points.

Over at Tracks last night, with Celebrity Guest Host Andy Berg hosting double this week, things got a little personal. FU Berg scored 34 points, which makes it necessary to suggest if you’re going to be the team talking that much shit, try not to finish in last place. Certainly don’t let a team like The Big P, who walked out after round 6 and still scored 39 points, beat you. There was also a team named Amanda Fucking Sucks for Leaving at 8 O’clock, but judging by their 51-point finish, Amanda wasn’t the only part of the team that fucking sucks. And Alternative Tracks showed up, putting a 63 on the board like NBD.

Closing out the night at 60 points it was Beerology, and they were bested by drink tickets. The Tunnel Snakes dropped 8 to end up at 63 points and Gilmore Girls Gone Wild got lifted to 64. That was enough for third place. Then, taking what I believe is their first podium spot, it was the Demogoregon Trail who used 11 points worth of drink tickets to end up at 76. And also using 11 bonus points, to make their win even more overwhelming, it was Tits & Giggles and their 106 points.

And now we take the show to Madison where the game gets played in the basement of Glass Nickel Pizza on Atwood. You will find food and drinks and good times and hard trivia all in one place. All you have to do is be there at 7pm.
