Let the Fall Leagues Begin

Whew. What a weekend. I’m over here trying to get my questions ready for trivia tonight and I’m still just thinking about what happened at Glass Nickel last Thursday night. I would tell you I’m going to ease into the vulgarities of the night, but there is no way to do so.

It was the Classy Cunts +J who showed up and shook the place every time I had to announce their scores. But I was okay with it. I assumed this crew knew of my history as a very important fashion writer, and their use of “+J” was actually a hat tip to the initial collaboration between Jil Sander and Uniqlo, which started in 2009. I think I still have one of the Overcoats from that F/W collection hanging in the hall closet. So, I think it’s safe to say this team is full of Classy Cunts indeed. They had 22 points.

Ahead of them at 42 points it was Clever Girl, who started out hot and then chilled. I like that move, that’s an intimidation tactic by all the best trivia teams. At 47 points it was Multiple Scorgasms, who didn’t finish first. Contrary to their name, they never finish first. Besting them by 1 point, and ending the night with 48, it was Team Drank Tickets.

Neal of Fortune found themselves finishing in an uncommon fourth place. But that’s what scoring zero points on your double and ending the night with 51 points will get you. At 66 points it was Homeward Bard: An Incredibly Spoony. That was good enough for third place. Second place went the newcomers Rollie Fingers’ Mustache they put 72 and brought an infant with them. Bold moves from a new team. Even bolder when you consider that the winners on the evening Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs only got to their 1st place spot after dropping 9 drink tickets and bumping themselves up to 78. It’s a bummer to see a new team go down like that, but that’s trivia justice in action.

Now, we roll onto this week’s shows where Nick is kicking it off at Company Brewing tonight. Legend has it, it’s the start of his Autumnal League. So everyone better starting heating some apple cider, think about maybe raking the leaves into a pile, I mean if you even have trees in Milwaukee, put on a vest and and get down to Company Brewing to answer some questions about Costa Rica, The Las Vegas Strip and The Donner Party.

The show starts at 7pm. See you there.
