All Aboard the Virtual Trivia Train!

Whew, back in action here at the trivia yard. And there is so much to do. But before we get into that I’m just going to wonder out loud how it is that I am the busiest I’ve been in, like 20 years, around Labor Day. We all are, right? That’s how society works.  Anyway, …

Do It Rockapella

It’s trivia time. You know how to do this, but if you don’t this is how you register for Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia:  Drop your registration fee on paypal.me/SlashGreg. There is no set registration fee, but half goes to the winning team’s chosen cause or charity and the other half helps keep the lights on at …

No Weeks Off

  Players, of course there is a trivia show tonight. As Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick likes to yell at me from across the conference rooms, “No weeks off!”  But there are more pressing issues at hand. Like, for example, I have to go buy a new car, which should be super fun under the thumb of …

Trivia Day in the E-neighborhood

Welcome to Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Day. I can’t even imagine the anxiety ripping through each player’s mind right now. Is my team going to cut me loose this week? Am I the dead weight? Could they find another player who can tilt their head just so and recognize Colombia at an arbitrary angle? They won’t …

Out In The Streets

I hope you’re all out there in those streets, behind the wheel, top down, stereo up, pumping that Elton John deep cut, Wednesday Night’s As Good As Any For Trivia. I think he released that around the time he rededicated Candle In The Wind to Meghan Markle’s late mother-in-law.   That might be the best …

Because there is nothing like protesting a war spearheaded by our government …

The Season Enders Start Now

I hope you y’all came to party.  I mean, it’s Thursday and that means trivia at Glass Nickel Pizza is on. As my neighbor would say, “It’s on like this homemade bong. You expected me to make it from an apple, but I’m actually using a potato. I’ve found the starchier texture to make a …

No Rest For The Wicked

The scene opens on a large, opulent estate. The quiet is unsettling. Dry leaves blow through open windows. A mouse, nibbling the crust of half-eaten bread on the table in the Hall of Feasts, retreats at the sound of the door bursting open. [NICK enters the room, dressed head-to-toe in blaze orange] NICK, to himself: …

Home Alone: Trunch Lake Edition

Wanted a bit of time to myself the other day so I sent the help home (or wherever they go; I have no idea), checked out the 100-item legal limit of cookbooks from the public library, and settled in by the fire to read. Three days later, I emerged ready to get to work in …

Spooky Season Starts Now

  Can you imagine the emotions running through the citizens of Milwaukee right now. Some people are shaking with anticipation, others are stress eating buckets of ice cream, and some, probably the Tunnelsnakes, are getting stoned only to fall asleep in the supply closet at their office. That’s just how fired up people should be …
