Calling It!

Consider the 1932 World Series, in the fifth inning of game three, when Babe Ruth called his shot. That’s the man who knows what he’s doing. If it was me I would have walked up, tapped my baseball stick on the soles of my sport shoes, dead-eyed the pitcher, looked out over the cheering crowd …

Shooting From The Hip

The Company Brewing crowd is committed. 100%. More heart than a Juggalo. Which reminds me, Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia is totally willing to take this show on the road for the Gathering of the Juggalos in beautiful Oklahoma City.   Anyway, the Company Brewing teams rolled into last night’s show completely blind. I was in Chicago …

Texas Don’t Want You Anyway

  If there is one thing we’ve learned from the crowd at the Up & Under, it’s that Texas isn’t for everyone. The disconnect become most clear when the teams there had to run through ten categories not really even tangentially related to the trivia they know and love, or at least seem to like. …

Company Brewing Texas Style

Hey-o Milwaukee, tonight it’s your chance to play some Texas Trivia. I’m super excited for you all to get there. It will be 6:55, maybe 6:57, and Nick will be nowhere to be found. Sure the show will be all set up, answer sheets and Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia pens will out for everyone. But where …

Dust Up at the Up & Under

In some ways, it’s probably best the Moonbats weren’t in the house last night. They did’t need to witnesses the shake up that went down. But it wasn’t the usuals. No, no. It was a darkhorse. Bowser-Domino. Yes, they’ve been lurking for some time, but they never really seemed to be within striking distance. Until …

This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

I’ve never seen Pretty Woman, but I have seen The Girl Next Door, starring Elisha Cuthbert, which I often confuse for She’s All That (another film I’ve never seen) and I know at one point Rachel Leigh Cook’s character in the last film says “I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.” Which is …

Opening Night at Company Brewing

I imagine Nick woke up early today, took in a deep breath of that fine Milwaukee air, tossed Damn and the turntable, and said, “I think this is a great day to start Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia at Company Brewing.” Later, when he’s on the bus, he’ll be telling complete strangers, “If you’re really into trivial …

And Then There Was Booing

It’s hard to identify the when last night’s Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia at Glass Nickel Pizza fell apart. It may have been when I decided to let Dorito Fingers use all the drink tickets they’ve ever collected at once. Or, maybe it was the lamprey question. Or maybe it was when Something, Something 420 started booing …

The Final Flight of The Falcon

  You know what they say, “what happens at the Polish Falcon, stays at the Polish Falcon, mostly because reliable sources of electricity and communication are spotty in Riverwest.” Unless, of course, what we’re talking about is Trivia scores. Nothing gets leaked as much as trivia scores, maybe a Beyonce album. Anyway, Polish Falcon part …

Trivia Training

Tuesday morning, and you know what that means. 3 Guys on a Fact Hunt was awake at 5:30am doing trivia exercises–prime number dead lifts, logo identification sets, sprints between two targets labeled “Jimmy Buffet” and “Kenny Chesney” and, of course, the V-sit reach.   Meanwhile, Andy and Lewis were sleeping late, not even sweating it. …
