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 …

A Trunch Lake Miracle

Gather round! Gather round! Come now trivia players, sit before the imagined fireplace and hear the story of the Trunch Lake Christmas.   ‘Twas the night before Christmas and Nick and I were rifling through the desks of our research assistants Looking for something to boost the effects of this fifth of rye, we’ve got …

Pre-Thanksgiving Day Massacre

Much the way Tesla is a car company, but it’s really about batteries, or the way Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia is Trivia company but it’s real about Nick and I getting together and eating and drinking a lot, there is the story, and then there is the real story. In literature this is called Hypodienetics, or …

‘Twas the night before Thanksgiving

Yesterday I made reference to the possibility of the Who Pooped in the Pool stepping up and dominating the whole Up & Under show. I didn’t say they WOULD do it. I said they COULD. But in all honesty, they never really had a chance. Last night they even added a second faction, Trivia Why …

WTF is Going Down at Up & Under

There are only a few weeks left in the fall league at the Up & Under, and it’s getting way too tight up top. Prior to the league, I thought this was the venue that was perfect for infiltration from an outside team. The field was small and the teams we good, but not great, …
