And Then There Was Booing

It’s hard to identify the when last night’s Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia at Glass Nickel Pizza fell apart. It may have been when I decided to let Dorito Fingers use all the drink tickets they’ve ever collected at once. Or, maybe it was the lamprey question. Or maybe it was when Something, Something 420 started booing …

Here’s what we knew was going to happen last night: Neal of Fortune was going to win. They’ve had this thing wrapped since Labor Day.

Milwaukee’s League Ender

  It was just 24 hours ago that I sat here talmbout how hard it was going to be for Gilmore Girls Gone Wild to take the win from Tits & Giggles. But then last night happened. Rarely in history have we seen things fall apart so completely with only the slightest bit of pressure. …

The Naming of Things

  I think I have proven time and time again I have no idea how the Bible works. That said, let me tell you the story of the prodigal son, or that of Moses and his people wandering through the desert for 40 days and 40 nights. Or, if it’s more apt, consider the time …
