Of Horn Dogs and Fuck Hounds

This is a little story about love and how that emotion can blindside you. The other night at the Up & Under there was this team, Eating Tiger Men, first timers, and couple lovers or whatever. Anyway, they met in college in a place relevant to an unannounced round in this week’s trivia show. They …

Summer’s over, Madison

Listen, Madison, I think we know how this is going to shake out. We’re staring down the summer league finals tonight, which means Neal of Fortune is probably going to win. Honestly, all they have to do is show up. Spoony Bards will hold fast to their motto, “Always the bridesmaids”. Clever Girl will rest …

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 …

A New Dawn

Fresh off a national holiday, we’re set to fire up some trivia tonight. As it is every Thursday, Glass Nickel Pizza on Atwood is home to Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia.

Summerfestin’

What a week! Am I right? The Company Brewing crowd just went deep with a crowd-sourced show and the Up & Under players are taking the night off to hit up Summerfest and I assume see Kid Rock or Benchpresser, or like Ani Difranco. Meanwhile, I’m over here trying to scratch together 50 quezzies to …

RIP NOF

Trivia was on a wild one last night. If you don’t believe me just check these stats. Laura Dern and High-Played Bass, a team that is no stranger to the top spot, only scraped together 36 points. While the peer-reviewed and accredited geniopedes on #1 Cat in America dropped a couple drink tickets and still …

Stranger Fruit Salad Days

Sure, the Glass Nickel summer league started last week, but I think this is the week it gets traction. Certainly the Spoony Bards are looking for a better showing. Rumor has it Laura Dern will be zipping-off the legs of their high-waisted paleobotanist pants, which means they mean business. Will TV Dogs show up? What …

Trivia as Literature

If American literature in the latter half of the last century has taught us one thing, it’s that we all have a role to fill. Regardless of our actions or our team names, our true selves will be revealed and by the end of the story will be right back to where we began. Sometimes …

The May Ender

I think we can all collectively wipe the sweat from our brows and get hyped because we made it through May. And last night, Madison sent the month packing in style. Travis for Nerl of 4Chan kicked-off the show, because I had to explain to old people that Next Door isn’t a scam but that …

Like George Micheal Said, Lets Give it One More Try

There was a time when a crowd-sourced show would have us dealing with five or six team-made Bamboo Harvester categories. And maybe like one category about Chickens of the American South, or whatever. Halcyon days for sure. Kjersti Says Jeremy is the Worst brought us Name That Foreign Body, a category of x-rays featuring things …
