Let the Fall Leagues Begin

Whew. What a weekend. I’m over here trying to get my questions ready for trivia tonight and I’m still just thinking about what happened at Glass Nickel last Thursday night. I would tell you I’m going to ease into the vulgarities of the night, but there is no way to do so. It was the …

Suck It, Manchester

“Suck it, Manchester.” That was jibe thrown across the trivia room by T.W.A.T. last night. But this wasn’t about wrestling victory from the clutches of a Mancunian, turning the event into some sort of poor allegory about colonialism, or a commentary about how immigrants are coming for our trivia prizes. No, no, this was T.W.A.T. …

In the Cut, with 3 Guys on A Fact Hunt

Those sandbagging MFers! I guess we should have seen it coming. We should have known this was simply a cat playing with its prey. There was no way 3 Guys on A Fact Hunt were going to give up the league win at the Up & Under. They just let everyone around them cobble to …

And Thus Concludes Week One

Madison was looking good last night. Sure, the Glass Nickel scores were kind of horrifying, but the crowd was great. I just looked out from behind my computer and thought, “Trivia, you looking like a bajilli.” Of course, the scores are where the games are won or lost. The scores are where league points are …

CLITERATURE

Writing recaps of trivia shows I don’t attend can be tricky. I know very little the teams at Company Brewing, except that I’m pretty sure Tits & Giggles would cut my throat given the chance. And they would probably use a rusty-ass razor blade they found in the gutter, because they live in Riverwest and …

Texas Night in Madison

A million thanks to Anjali who held down the Madison show while I guzzling Lone Stars by the dozen. Everyone said she has a great host, and one person claimed she did a better job than I do. That person won’t be coming back. Anyway the crowd was fresh. All the Texans I expected to …

The Complete Filmography of Gus von Trier

Alright we gotta do this one quickly because I have so many meats to write about today. So many meats. Here goes, the original Bitch Planet was in the mix at Glass Nickel last night and regardless how confident and cocky they seemed when it came to Wrestlers, they clearly know nothing of the WWF/WCW …

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 …

The Glass Nickel Winter League Banger

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. But there were so many things we didn’t expect: Who knew Neal of Fortune would also BRING prizes? Not me. But Alex showed up with Film Festival tickets for everyone. …

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. …
