Basking in the Glow

Players, this is where we start to see the shortcomings of the in-person shows and, ultimately, the perfection of the virtual shows.

Imagine being a player on a team like Bobby Portishead or Thrillho–one of those teams that banged down 69 points for a top spot tie Monday night at Company Brewing. Noble efforts by both teams for sure. But they were able to soak in their glory stew for like 12 hours. Maybe 24 if they didn’t have to start planning how they were going to move about Milwaukee last night. Then they were immediately upstaged by the World Champion Milwaukee Bucks.

Just think about some sour-ass Thrillho players looking at the nearly 100,000-person celebration going on last night and mumbling, “Big deal, we won trivia on Monday and they didn’t close down any streets for us.”

I don’t even know Thrillho but I can tell you, that team needs to drop the attitude.

Now we roll into the virtual game, where we’ve got teams like Alphabet Mafia and OGNeal of Fortune, playing their guts out for the win. Can you imagine 30 years from now, OGNOF Grampa Gabe telling the young ones about how he watched the Bucks become world champs and then his team stacked up a second win via Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia? So really it’s like being back-to-back champions.

I also suspect he ends that story by making some comment about the Bulls winning several championships and then telling the kids to get outside and play because it’s only 110 degrees and the weather doesn’t get any more perfect than that.

So if you’re on OGNOF and you want to make this a reality, or you’re on any other team and you want to foil Gabe’s future, I suggest getting into the game tonight. To show the world what you’ve got, get your team together and get registered for tonight’s show:
