You know, they call it “The City of Bridges”

Greg’s gone from Pittsburgh to the “nation’s” “captial” so you can imagine what trivia will be like the next few weeks. Meanwhile, I’m stuck at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia World Headquarters and Rap Emporium tending to the underground mushroom farm we had installed last spring. It looks to the untrained eye like a pile old answer …

Week 17, Milwaukee Style

Yesterday I told you, no, I promised you, there would be a show. And today I’m telling you there will be another show. Will there be online updates? That is yet to be seen. We’re in the middle of league play at Company Brewing and SOME teams came to play. Some of the other teams, …

The Done-ing of the Green

  AND. WE. ARE. BACK. I know some of you spent the weekend getting truckhoused on Guinesses and shamrock shakes, talking about your gramma who knew someone named O’Malley and how some dismal island in the cold north Atlantic is the new Jerusalem. Others watched TV all weekend, busting basketball brackets while you ripped through …

Glass Nickel Early Winter League Ender

The time has come for a showdown in Madison. For the true trivia players, it’s going to look like this: The Spoony Bards have 56 points and Neal of Fortune is parked at 54. That’s close. But what we also know is NOF is sitting on like 5000 drink tickets. That makes it real tight …

Things Start to Die Now

If you had to estimate, how many watermelons would you say you consumed over the holiday weekend? Three, maybe four? As for me, I easily had four whole watermelons. But I also tossed back three cantaloupes.   It was a holiday weekend, so I decided to live a little. You know, give the taste buds …

The Texas Train Rolls On

It’s been brought to my attention Nick was not wearing a serape at Company Brewing last night. It’s like he’s already forgotten about the Lone Star state. Fortunately, Clementines from Madison created this drawing, demonstrating one way to wear such a fine garment.   Before we get too deep into the trivia recap from last …

Tales of Texas: Part 1

It’s hard to say what I learned in Texas. We saw so many things, went to all sorts of places and drove around a lot. Texas is massive. I think in time it will all settle in and I will be better able to explain what I learned. Until then, consider these points: When a …
