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. …

Trivia, Derailed

I can’t tell you when last night’s trivia started to go off the rails, but I can pinpoint the exact moment when I knew shit wasn’t going to right itself. It was round six. The Oscars round which no team doubled, and yet the average score in the room was 12.7 points. Compare that to …

The Middle of the Middle

  Clearly, the crew from Tracks is not falling for this this middling weeks league ennui rubbish. No no, they showed up in force last night. The regulars were in the house and a couple of new teams popped in, just to shake it up a bit. Of course, the players at The Tracks are …

RIP Trivia in Madison

  I only say that because last night’s show killed, and not in a good “Oh that comedian killed” sort of way. I’m talking about players, walking up to hand in their answer sheets, then pulling out a knife, slashing their own wrists, letting the blood spray all over with no regard for those who …

Billy Joel Singing Auld Lang Syne

Yeah, so no Madison teams decided to play head to head last night. I’d call them all suckers but they put up the good fight. Some even got involved in a physical challenge tie-breaker. Not to worry, Three-Minute Plank Kate can rest assured knowing her record still stands. The Madison crowd only lasted about a …

Bathtub Primates

No one expects a monumental shift to happen on a frigid, non-league Thursday night in Madison. I certainly didn’t. I expected to walk into the place, read off some questions, hand out the new the Bamboo Harvester of Sorrow tees and get on with it. But then last night happened. And it wasn’t just one …

Talk About The Weather, Like That’s Something

It’s this type of weather that makes me question my choice, and really anyone’s choice, to live here, in this cold. Granted, this place is not the always frozen landscape it’s falsely purported to be. But the predicted high temperature for Sunday is negative six. That’s not a typo. That’s not a celsius measurement. That’s …

Madison League Finals are GO!

There’s an old saying, “If tree falls in the forest, and no one is there to hear it, prove to me it wasn’t aliens.” I’m pretty sure this is about climate change. But I think it also applies to Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia yesterday. You see, I just spent nearly 24 hours without internet service to …

Let The Fall Leagues Commence!

The Madison Fall League starts today. Ten weeks of Thursday night frustration and pedantry. I hope you all have been working out, because there will be so much handfanning. I’m honestly surprised Mayor Paul Soglin hasn’t yet worked with us to make this Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia day in Madison. That last bit may be a …
