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 …

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 …

    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 …

  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 …

Peak Seasonal Affective Disorder Season

If my reading of a simple spreadsheet is correct, this week is the midpoint of the Winter 2017 League. Side note: My entire life of writing–whether papers in school, marketing items or the Today Show slash fiction I publish under the name Bryce Sorghum-Sandiphists–one of the most important things I’ve learned is to hook the …

The Post Valentine’s Day Massacre

How many of us woke up this morning regretting the whole Valentine’s Day ordeal? I know did. I spent the whole day in airports. So rad. Of course there was the day before, when me and that special someone took in a french fry bang-bang of In-N-Out and Five Guys. Five Guys has far superior …

And Then Joe Buck Says, “Well, It’s The Penalties That Lost The Game For Them.”

Man, I don’t even know what’s gotten into you players out there. Walking into trivia with teams seven, eight, sometimes ten deep? What kind of shit is that? Don’t get me wrong, I love having more people in the place. More drinks get poured, more money gets spent, Trivia looks more successful. But you know …
