The League Finale at Up & Under

I almost feel bad for the players at the Up & Under tonight. It’s going to be brutal. We have three teams vying for the league championship. Moonbats have the advantage with 43. The Whispering Goats Whores have 42, and 3 Guys on a Fact Hunt have 40 points. Some so-called experts have said the …

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 Ides of March

The Ides of March are upon us. And that means Nick’s birthday is as well. But that’s not what we’re here to talk about. Actually, let’s discuss the ides for a moment. What was a better portrayal in film? Was it Ryan Gosling and George Clooney in the 2011 film The Ides of March, or …

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 …

Peak Seasonal Affective Disorder Season

If my reading of a simple spreadsheet is correct, this week is the midpoint of the Winter 2017 League. Side note: My entire life of writing–whether papers in school, marketing items or the Today Show slash fiction I publish under the name Bryce Sorghum-Sandiphists–one of the most important things I’ve learned is to hook the …

IT ALL COMES BACK TO ROBOTS

I’m not sure how to talk about what happened last night. I wouldn’t call it an act of violence in the traditional sense. I don’t think it was malicious. And I won’t call it a hate crime, which would imply Neal of Fortune feels anything. No no. You see last, Neal of Fortune proved themselves …

The Rise of Tunnel Snakes

You know, as a trivia host and the primary p/recappist people always often as ask me, “Do you have a favorite team?” And, “I heard the sex parties at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Global Headquarters and Rap Emporium and Academy of Trivia Arts are fucking bonkers. Is that true?” To which I typically say, “I would …

To The Gutter…And Beyond!

Sometimes it’s hard for me to look at the scores that come in from across this great trivia land and think, “I’m living right. I’m doing what I can to make this place a little better.” The truth is, Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia is probably dragging this state down into the mucky-muck faster than just about …

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 …
