Singles Day

It’s singles day y’all!

That’s well and good for anyone looking to score sweet deals on Ultra Light Down jackets from Uniqlo, but revelling in your exclusivity is no way to operate a winning trivia team. Sure, a solitary player will probably beat a team like Tunnelsnakes and may even come up with a win once in a great while, but for sustained dominance you’re going to want to put a team together. 

It is simply unlikely someone playing solo tonight at Company Brewing is going to be able to flex the mental muscle needed to dominate categories like Apple Cultivars and Varietals, Madden Cover Athletes or Children’s Movie Soundtracks

To truly be effective, you need to put together a crew, a solid four to six players with a vast berth of rather useless knowledge. It would be even better if you could build a team similar to the passengers of the SS Minnow. You’re going to need a scientist who you call professor and a captain packed with practical knowledge who you call Skipper. Then you’ll want someone with gob cap and blotter tabs, a couple of out-of-touch, privileged white folks to bankroll the team, a youthful midwestern who shows up crop-topped and snackable and finally a seemingly vapid superstar who turns out to be the ringer and is good with a coconut radio. 

I would say I’m ready to film any of those roles, except that I’ve already seen the questions and answers. 

Anyway, once you’ve put your team together, you’re all going to want to get to Company Brewing in Riverwest tonight. As always, there will be food and drinks. And you know Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick has 50 questions that are sure to please. It’s a round of trivia you don’t want to miss. And if it makes you feel better, you can still get that smoking deal on those ULDs from Uniqlo. Shit, dog, you could get them for your whole team. 

The show starts tonight at 7pm. See you there.
