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 …

The League Rolls On

AWWW YISSSS, PLAYERS. Your MFin’ Wednesday has arrived. That means you’re about to virtually get together with a couple friends, maybe a couple people you don’t know that well but who are good at trivia, and then spend the evening watching three hosts who you don’t like much at all ask you a bunch of …

Not a Wrestling Fan, But a Huge Fan of Wrestling References

Players, we are now one week into spring league and things are looking good for the Milwaukee teams. That’s Somewhat Raven took a few weeks off, walked back into the tournament hall, crushed all competitors and then walked out with that fat Company Brewing gift card. Sure, Scrambled Eggs Benedict turned on the heat for …

The Thaw

Stretch it out players, word on the street is the thaw is upon us. I have mixed feelings on this. I mean, good god it feels nice to comfortably walk out of my house for the first time in 10 days (one metric week). On the flip side, we don’t need trivia players walking away …

Return to Normal-ish

Listen, players, I don’t want to say that this week is some sort of return to normal. But let’s just bask in this winter light for a moment. Gone are the crowd-sourced shows and entire teams getting very angry about arm wrestlers. Gone, for now, are the Wednesday nights when Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick and Wisconsin’s …

C’mon Ride That Crowd-Sourced Train

Players, somebody take my arm. My knees are weak. I might be going down. You see, I’ve seen what you have yet to see. I have lain mine eyes upon this week’s Wisconsin Hardest Trivia show, and I don’t know if I will ever recover.  Five of the six categories tonight are coming from the …

Finals Week!

Welcome to the interyulian days. These days that see us lumber from the Solstice to New Year’s Day. Heavy in the belly with feast after feast, and in the heart with the weight of long nights and another year passing during which the words to Auld Lang Syne have not been learned nor considered.  Each …

The Macy’s Day Before Thanksgiving Day Trivia Show

Time is running out, players. I mean, you still have like 7+ hours, but consider the age of the earth, we’re talking a few billions years and y’all are going to let your team registration slide until the last seven hours. 420 minutes. A stoner joke made on blip, upon another blip on Earth’s timeline.  …

New League. New Format

OOOOOOOOO doggy! It’s league time.  Can you imagine the players of Welcome to Blockbuster boarding up their hearts, checking to be sure their brain cannons are loaded, taking inventory of their Space Whistle crowlers. These are the same questions every team needs to be asking themselves: Is this a team we can win with? Are …

More like Schl-October

Players, we’re already seven days deep and I just realized, we are in October. Being one who doesn’t look at a calendar or really understand the reason for times and days, I was pleased but not surprised. I saw those leaves changing color. I noticed the days now had more darkness. I could see the …
