Madison, Can You Dig It?

Perhaps I underestimated the resilience of the Brady Street crowd in Milwaukee. Because it certainly seems like they were more shook by the Riverwest 24 than I expected. Well listen up, Up & Under players, the bike race is over. All the Riverwest hoodlums and ne’er do wells have gone home. It’s safe to leave your houses and apartments again. It’s safe to return to Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. In fact, now would be the right time to burn down a couple bridges and reignite the great Milwaukee River Wars of the 1990s.

That said, a few teams turned out. Trivia Newton John showed up and cleaned house with 104 points. Shiva Conglomeration earned something like second place with 70 and Who Pooped in the Pool ended up at the bottom, where they are most comfortable, with 15 points. A true power bottom force.

Now onto the Madison where it’s really anyone’s game. Alex and Gabe are successfully wed and have shoved off to California. But not before they squeezed in one more trivia at their Rehearsal dinner. Did they win? Barely.  


Zak or Zach or Zack is allegedly creeping around Indianapolis waiting for GenCon to start. Caitlin now calls Minnesota home and acts like she’s never even heard of Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. So you know Neal of Fortune might not be the powerhouse they once were. Just kidding. Kathleen, Travis and Neal are still in a fighting stance.

Plus, TV Dogs claims they’re coming back and the Spoony Bards are hungry for a win. Then again, tonight could be Laura Dern’s night, or it could be time for the Good Enough to stop sandbagging and start winning.

With one month left in the summer league it could be nearly any team that takes home the winnings.

But that is just the league news. Trivia is always open to everybody, all you have to do is get a team together and show up. We’ll be in the Basement of Glass Nickel Pizza on Atwood. Order up a few pints and couple fresh pizzas, make some small talk with and wait for the questions to start firing.

The show starts at 7pm. See you there.
