Company Brewing Keeps on Rising

  The Company Brewing teams have done it again. Packing in and throwing down. That’s the name of the game over there. So let see these scores, shall we? At 44 points last night it was efukt.com, which seems more like the name of some 1990s website. Impressively high score for a last place finish. …

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 …

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. …

Emitting an Audible Click

Milwaukee, You’re now entering week two of your fall league. Can you believe it? They grow up so fast. The Once Brilliant Detectives are off to an early lead, but it’s small lead and anyone could overtake them with a simple flexing of knowledge. Perhaps the Tunnel Snakes can do it tonight. Or Tits & …

And Milwaukee Week Rolls On

I screwed up. I had no idea last week was the league final for the Milwaukee players as well. I guess it was. I had no idea partially because I wasn’t paying attention and partially because I never asked Nick directly. And that last point is because he and I have spoken face-to-face since 2013. …

There are even baby pictures of that team with John Travolta and Kirstie Alley voiceovers talking about how they were going to win the Summer 16 Trivia League from Wisconsin’s …

Madison, It’s Your Summer League Ender

Madison, tonight is the the night! Let me start over. A couple years ago, the anchor of Neal of Fortune, Alexandra dropped a Thin Lizzy greatest hits compilation on me, because I said I had no clue who Thin Lizzy was. It turns out, I have heard as many as several Thin Lizzy songs. So, I’m …

Your Weed Dude Was Right!

You remember that dude you met in your late teens or early twenties. You probably went to his place to buy some weed, or maybe some mushrooms, but definitely not MDMA. We all know your MDMA lead was on a whole different level. Like the first time you saw the Helena character in Orphan Black …

The Sporting Life

  I hope you all like sports. Why? Because we have like 50 goddamned questions about sports coming up tonight. This puts me in a very vulnerable position, because there is the likelihood of something like this happening:   Host: For which NBA team, other than the Bulls, did Mike Jordan play hoops? The answer …

The Dark Days of Deep Summer

Gloomy day here at WHTGHQ. I’m pretty sure the photoactive eyes in the giraffes at the security gate were still glowing when I arrived this morning. If you’re wondering what the security gate looks like, imagine a large stone gate, not quite “Welcome…to Jurassic Park” big, but more like “I’m here to pick up my …
