Madison Shake-ups

In the world of pub trivia, the recent matches at Glass Nickel Pizza have been some of the best the world has ever seen. There have been shake ups, old standards, stalwarts reclaiming the throne, and the rise of new threats. I assume this is just like Games of Thrones, but what do I know, I only watch Young Sheldon and the episodes of Kevin Can Wait since they killed the mother. I know a lot of people are busting on Kevin Can Wait, but I have a bit of sitcom intuition and I’m saying, “Stick with this one”. I’m really looking forward to the second half of the season, when the storyline takes a dark turn and we start seeing Kevin Can Wait’s flashbacks–his face sweaty and red from holding his breath, but luckily for him he’ll get to breathe again. His fictional wife, Donna Can Wait, doesn’t have that luxury as her life is being choked out of her by her husband’s bare hands.

There is this rumor in Hollywood, that Kevin Can Wait star, Kevin Canwaite, actually killed the actress on the set and they used her already dead body to film the flashback scenes. Just like when they pulled a Weekend-at-Bernies with the decaying body of Brandon Lee for the films The Crow: City of Angels, The Crow: Stairway to Heaven, The Crow: Salvation and The Crow: Wicked Prayer.

Anyway let’s get back to trivia and look at last week’s show. T.W.A.T. heard rumors that another team was moving in on their custom made caboose and decided to show up, showing all you other MFers what it really looks like to score 52 points and get last place. Kwoosty and the Fwowns, the team formerly known as Team Drink Tickets, are missing Kirstie and Kyle who offer the double threat of intelligence and commitment to drink ticket acquisition. They ended the evening with 72 points. Crouching Woman Hidden Cucumber, the new name of Neal of Fortune, sent in a proxy who put up 80 points. I assume that was some sort of gang initiation tactic, because Alex did come check on him at the end. Always contenders Clever Girl and Mooney, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs tied at 82 points.

In the top three it was Good Enough, newcomers who have some serious heat behind them. They dropped 12 drink tickets, boosting their score to 96 points and claiming third place. Ahead of them it was Fish Ladies, another new team who pulled together 107 points, lost 15 for an extra team member, played 14 drink tickets and ended the night with 106. But in first place, it was Spoony Bardday, Amanda. Apparently for Amanda’s Birthday she wanted a team without Becky, without Rob, just streamlined and ready to strike. Which they did, playing six drink tickets and ending up with 109 points.

If you want to get in on this mix-up all you have to do is be at Glass Nickel Pizza on Atwood tonight. Jake will be there slinging drinks. Simon will probably be on pizza patrol and calzone control. I’ll be asking questions. What more could you want from a Thursday evening?  As always, the show is in the basement and starts at 7pm.

See you there.
