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. …

Growing Up Trivia

There comes a time in every young trivia players life when they have to ask themselves, “is trivia really what I’m into?” Sure, some people know from day one—from that first time they sat in the Horse and Cart in Charleston, South Carolina and listened to a dude named Suhas runs through a series of …

And the Summer League Begins

Hey-o! What a wild night to kick off a brand new summer league at Company Brewing. Not only were three a million teams in the house, there was also a hockey game being shown. HOCKEY! Sadly, it wasn’t the Letterkenney Shamrocks playing. If hockey isn’t your thing, you could have watched trivia. You would have …

Calling It!

Consider the 1932 World Series, in the fifth inning of game three, when Babe Ruth called his shot. That’s the man who knows what he’s doing. If it was me I would have walked up, tapped my baseball stick on the soles of my sport shoes, dead-eyed the pitcher, looked out over the cheering crowd …

Shooting From The Hip

The Company Brewing crowd is committed. 100%. More heart than a Juggalo. Which reminds me, Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia is totally willing to take this show on the road for the Gathering of the Juggalos in beautiful Oklahoma City.   Anyway, the Company Brewing teams rolled into last night’s show completely blind. I was in Chicago …

Texas Don’t Want You Anyway

  If there is one thing we’ve learned from the crowd at the Up & Under, it’s that Texas isn’t for everyone. The disconnect become most clear when the teams there had to run through ten categories not really even tangentially related to the trivia they know and love, or at least seem to like. …

This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

I’ve never seen Pretty Woman, but I have seen The Girl Next Door, starring Elisha Cuthbert, which I often confuse for She’s All That (another film I’ve never seen) and I know at one point Rachel Leigh Cook’s character in the last film says “I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.” Which is …

Trivia Training

Tuesday morning, and you know what that means. 3 Guys on a Fact Hunt was awake at 5:30am doing trivia exercises–prime number dead lifts, logo identification sets, sprints between two targets labeled “Jimmy Buffet” and “Kenny Chesney” and, of course, the V-sit reach.   Meanwhile, Andy and Lewis were sleeping late, not even sweating it. …

And Thus Ends the Winter Leagues

We might need bring Moonbats in for some blood tests after last night’s Up & Under show. I suspect a Lance Armstongian doping set-up but. How else do you explain the 106 points scored last night on the team’s march to victory. But this then leads into the greater question of, “What would be a …

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 …
