Things Start to Die Now

If you had to estimate, how many watermelons would you say you consumed over the holiday weekend? Three, maybe four? As for me, I easily had four whole watermelons. But I also tossed back three cantaloupes.   It was a holiday weekend, so I decided to live a little. You know, give the taste buds …

In the Cut, with 3 Guys on A Fact Hunt

Those sandbagging MFers! I guess we should have seen it coming. We should have known this was simply a cat playing with its prey. There was no way 3 Guys on A Fact Hunt were going to give up the league win at the Up & Under. They just let everyone around them cobble to …

We Get the Leader We Deserve

You all know gypsy is a pejorative term, right? Good, so shout out to all that weak-kneed suckers who sat idly by last night and let a team name themselves “Gypsy Danger”. But I’m not here to lecture you. Just go ahead and head down to Gypsy Taco and smother your subtle racism in trash …

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 …
