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 …

Come On Feel the Trivia

Let me tell you players, I’m finally feeling safe enough to step out of my house. The comments got heated last week, and you know when the comments get heated, the emotions are burning up. I can’t just be walking out, unprotected, into an angry public. Even with my face mask on people were like, …

Deep in the League Mucky Muck

We are entering the closing weeks of the Late 2020 league here at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. And things are not quite shaking out as I expected.

A stoner joke made on blip, upon another blip on Earth’s timeline.  …

Onward Trivia Soldiers

Players, don’t think for one minute y’all been forgotten about.  You all knew that some point, in this week of trying to communicate clearly with an artist in Madrid, watching and supporting as a funeral gets planned and having new windows installed at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Global Headquarters, Rap Emporium, Internet Content Chop Shop and …

11/11

Whew! We are on the down slope of another heavy-day double stack.  Certainly, you all know yesterday was Edmund Fitzgerald Day. To commemorate the event Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick, Anjali of Ever Increasing Wisconsin Hardness and I dropped a canoe at the port of Duluth and had full intentions of delivering this week’s show from the …

The Fog of Life’s War

  Way back when, like 12 years ago, Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick and I started playing trivia at a Monday night show, which led to a tradition we called Mild Hangover Tuesdays. But you have to understand time. We were younger. Lars and Keith were in the house. Bottles of Schlitz were two dollars.  We would …
