Setting it off

Alright Madison, in the words of the Queen Latifah, “Let’s set it off.”

That’s from the classic, 1996 film Set It Off. At one point Latifah, as the character Stoney, demands a bigger gun and says, “I ain’t trying to rob stagecoaches, I need something with which I can set it off. Like those trivia people in Madison.”

It was at that moment I set down my pencil and told my teachers I wouldn’t be listening to any more of their brainwashing. Real knowledge comes from the streets. From living life. I knew what I was to do. And here we are, 22 years later. Ready for trivia.  

It all comes full circle tonight, because while no one is trying to rob stagecoaches, there is an entire category on horse thieves. Of course, that is not take anything away from some of the other fine categories that we have tonight. I mean Sex and the City…lakes of North America…current events, wild card and WTF all full of nonsense. Bruh, I can’t wait to see who sets it off tonight.

If you think it’s bound to be your team, all you need to do get to Glass Nickel Pizza on Atwood and find us in the basement. The show starts at 7pm. See you there.
