Let The Winter League Begin

Madison, I hope all you players are relaxing today. These last few hours before the Winter League begins are not about learning more, it’s about getting your mind right. This is the classic dichotomy of the trivia mind, you want to be sharp, but not too sharp. That’s why some players are here, at Wisconsin’s …

  To anyone keeping score, I suggest you mark down week three as the first time we had a full trivia squad again. We’ve got Up & Under firing tonight. We’ve got Madison kicking off a winter league on Thursday. This must be like how the Golden State Warriors are going to feel when Demarcus Cousins …

The Ol’ Milwaukee Redeemer

Milwaukee, I saw the roster and I’ve seen the scores from last night’s show at CoBrew. I gotta be honest, you’re not looking so hot right now. Sure, you could blame the host, or the people who write the questions, but I think we all know whose fault these scores are. What a Hot Messopotamia …

Week 49 Recapper

  There was a lot of hullabaloo at Glass Nickel Pizza last night. Like a man can’t wear bangs and without a room full of people giving him shit for it. I mean Neil had a new haircut. No one asked to take pics of him with his little boy hair to send to their …
