  Let me tell you a little something about trivia, there are two kinds of trivia players. Those who don’t like Valentine’s Day, and those who weren’t even aware it was Valentine’s Day. Look at any trivia crowd, but the one at Glass Nickel specifically for this example. These are clearly not people who need …

Consider Your Motivation For Getting Out Tonight

Before you start complaining about the cold, or how you’re wearing 12 layers and you’re considering skipping trivia tonight, I want you to think about the earliest settlers of Wisconsin, and specifically Madison. Think about how they didn’t have their Nest thermostats turned up to 76. Or a neighbor kid who shoveled their sidewalks. They …

Let The Winter League Begin

Madison, I hope all you players are relaxing today. These last few hours before the Winter League begins are not about learning more, it’s about getting your mind right.

It Was Caffeine Pills

Dry your eyes, Madison. I know the first of November can be rough. You’re packing away your Novak Djokovic or Brit Marling in the film Sound of my Voice costume. You’re squeezing a couple of the remaining mini-packs of Swedish Fish you were handing out to trickertreaters, wondering if they can last one more year. …

Week 43 Madison Recap

Sure, a couple pics of Gritty appeared in last night’s show, but I didn’t think that would be enough to set the place ablaze with the flames of chaos. Yet that’s exactly what happened. Tensions were high all night. There was constant booing from the the back of the room, which is normal. Even before …

Sometimes you’re sitting on the front step, sipping hot coffee and watching the morning move. Then, you hear a car coming down the block. It’s moving just a little too slow and you have to decide if you have time to scoop up you dog or your child or whatever and get some place safe. …
