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 …

The Texas Train Rolls On

It’s been brought to my attention Nick was not wearing a serape at Company Brewing last night. It’s like he’s already forgotten about the Lone Star state. Fortunately, Clementines from Madison created this drawing, demonstrating one way to wear such a fine garment.   Before we get too deep into the trivia recap from last …

Dust Up at the Up & Under

In some ways, it’s probably best the Moonbats weren’t in the house last night. They did’t need to witnesses the shake up that went down. But it wasn’t the usuals. No, no. It was a darkhorse. Bowser-Domino. Yes, they’ve been lurking for some time, but they never really seemed to be within striking distance. Until …

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 Tracks Finale!

  3 Guys on a Fact Hunt. Say it with me now. Tres Chicos en una Caza de Hechos. These ice cold MFers are making a hard run at the league champions. Sure, they won with 88 points last night, but that’s not the whole story. Moonbats, a strong team in their own right, grabbed …

Finals week?

    Settle in, it’s going to be a wild couple of weeks on the trivia front. “Why?” You might ask, and I’ll tell you. You see this week is the league finals if you’re playing at Tracks Tavern or Glass Nickel Pizza. That means super rad prizes, extra giddy hosts and 12 rounds of …

Stacking Quezzies

  Oh man, if only you could see the trivia that was written this this weekend. Is there an upcoming round about fermented foods? Yes. maybe a category about two of the most notable bands to come from the Boston music scene of the 1990-2000s? Certainly. And maybe an entire category about contranyms? Dog, you …

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 …
