Typical Groundhoggery

Groundhog Day came early last night for the trivia players at Glass Nickel Pizza. And by that I mean Hannah popped her head in and said to everyone, “Ha ha! 6 more weeks of losing MFers!” So maybe it wasn’t the best start to a league most of the teams have ever seen. I mean, …

Steve Harvey Cold Snaps

Assuming anyone can even gather the strength to leave their homes and face the this weather one more time, we should have a good match tonight at Glass Nickel Pizza. Let’s run down the list: Eric is already back in Montana or Wyoming or whatever great expanse of a western state he calls home. Kathleen …

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

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 …

Mayday!

Alright Trivia-ist, consider this your post for the next couple weeks, because I’ve got some vacationing to do. But that doesn’t mean Nick isn’t going to be running the show tonight at Company Brewing, putting all of Riverwest on blast. Nor does that mean Andy and Lewis aren’t going to be telling people what’s what …

No mas, Señor Neal

Dear Milwaukee Players at Tracks, I had no power for most of the day yesterday, and therefore wrote no trivia entry. Certainly, I could have gone to a coffee shop and worked, but instead I read a great article about the founders of Opening Ceremony and Creative Directors at Kenzo who are influencing the fashion …

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 …
