Madison. Come out to play. Madison. Come out to play-ay-ay. We’re firing up the summer league shows here in Madison.

Monday Night is When The Real Players Come Out

  The best part about last night at Hotel Foster was when EVERYONE in the bar was playing Trivia. Sure, not everyone was officially in.

OOOOOH! The inquiries. Oh, the questions.

Trivia is churning the soul of the players out there.

Your team would know the questions you’ve asked, presumably providing your team with 15 points. 30 if you doubled your own category. All you had to do was know the answers …

Crowd-Sourced Precap and the Seasonal Shift in Milwaukee Venues

  Alright, alright, alright. Big things happening tonight. Over at The Tracks Tavern, we’ll be closing out the winter season and making room for the volleyball crowd to move in. It’s much like the elk migration through Yellowstone—roads get closed, there’s a lot of huffing and snorting, a few random camels get tossed in the …

Madison’s 2016 Winter League Recap

Let’s go back to the league finals for a minute, shall we? I can’t comment on how it went down in Milwaukee, but in Madison it played out like this. We had some known-but-not-super-regular teams, TWAT and #12 Seed, coming in just to have good time and collect some pint glasses. Long time contenders and …
