Friday the 13th

Walking back into Trivia at the Glass Nickel last night was a little like the penultimate scene in Full Metal Jacket. Imagine sneaking in after a week away. A once glorious building now dark except for the fires burning throughout, which somethow offer so little light. Smoke clouds one’s vision. That might be smell of …

They are all dead

It’s a big Friday around here, as I was fully prepared to tell you about the excitement of the Glass Nickel trivia show, instead I only come with questions. Specifically, what happened? I take the night off to attend a very important Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia meeting and I come home to zeros across the board …

MADISON! MADISON! MADISON! We’re out of league play and so that can only mean one thing: The Spoony Bards will deliver a crushing victory tonight. I suspect they will rack up somewhere around 150 points. With the closest team to them scoring somewhere in the mid-twenties, maybe. Or some rogue team, Lady Posse, Guess Harder …

Inter-Leagueian Period

We’re coming back fresh after a weekend of plowing through passover seders, easter egg hunts, eating and drinking the body and blood of christs, and enough peeps and jelly beans to rot even the strongest of teeth. I have to suspect Neal of Fortune celebrated a little extra become they took home the top spot …

Week 11 Follow Up

After back to back to back to back weeks of standing room only crowds in the Glass Nickel basement, last night reminded us that the universe is chaotic and just when you think you’ve got something great on your hands, half the teams won’t show up. I think Stephen Hawking felt it was okay to …

A Classic Capital City Standoff

Madison, I think we’re really ready for the Trivia show happening tonight. I mean, last week we really went through some mucky-muck together. Nearly 50 people packed in the basement of Glass Nickel Pizza, a new server working the floor, 49 subpar questions, and a tie at 100 points. That’s right Milwaukee, these MFers over …

Week Eight Recap

It would be nice to be here this morning talking about what a great trivia show we had last night. Sadly, I cannot do that. What happened last night wasn’t trivia, that was a mess. It started out nicely, Pabst Smear a new team showed up, blasted through the first round and looked like they …

Jeopardy Doubles

I was going to start by saying it’s the Madison teams’ time to shine, but we’ve got bigger fish to fry (Lent jokes for all you cafflicks). I mean sure we could talk about how Drink Tickles did break the 100-point mark last week, or how Clementines showed up from out of nowhere and nabbed …

Cuckolded by Christ

We’ve got a straight-up head-to-head showdown this week. Can one of the Madison teams do what Milwaukee could not? Will we see a team go over 100 points tonight, or will the capital city sputter out? The first obstacle will be topping Who Pooped in the Pool with their emotional journey to 20 points and …

Let the Leagues Begin!

Sometimes I get it all wrong. I’m not afraid to admit it. Just look at last week. I counted Neal of Fortune out long before the match even started. I said Laura Dern and the High-waisted Necklines stood zero chance without Hannah. And I claimed it was going to be Good Enough’s week. Then Good …
