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 …

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 …

Madison’s Time to Shine

We’re running through this one super quick so brace yourselves. Last night at The Tracks, Nursing Schooled showed up again and scored 16 points which should be a low enough score for them to change their name to Nursing Schooled Schooled by Trivia. Ahead of them, it was Beerology who put Larry Bird on the …

Supervolcanos and Pressure From Beneath

All you MFers know there’s a supervolcano under Yellowstone National Park, right? Yeah, it’s there. Untrained non-scientists and speculators are pretty sure this bad boy is going to blow any day now. Though I should note the increase in the estimated time before eruption does seems to correlate directly to increased knowledge of volcanos and …

The Pepsi Fucking Challenge

And just like that we are into week three of the winter league, though it feels way more like the summer league outside. Am I right? All weather talk aside, we’ve got a solid week lined up for anyone, on any team, who’s in the thick of it at any of the trivia shows. I …

Breakfast For Dinner, Tuesday for Wednesday

I understand most of the Madison players and a few of the Milwaukee players have never been to the Up & Under. “Why would I go there?” you might ask yourself, assuming it just a heavy metal bar with 666 minutes of live music every week. Why would you go there if you didn’t want …

Let’s Do It Right This Year, Or At Least Less Wrong

  Just when you thought 2017 couldn’t get any better, you find out we’re over here prepping another classic trivia show for the crowd at the Up & Under. I don’t want to tell you what kind of show it’s going to be, but it’ll be pretty rad. Just look at the facts:   It’s …
