The Decade is Upon Us

Does time mean anything anymore? No. Of course not. It’s either moving negative miles per whatever, when we’re thinking things like, “Dog, I cannot wait to play trivia in person again.” Or, it’s going too fast when we realize things like “Certainly, the United States will have this under control in no time” was something that was said in March. MARCH. 

I’ve opted to use that non-logic to ease into a maybe three-week-old meme. Or maybe it’s been three days. But, we’re pushing up on ten years of Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. Ten years since Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick and Wisconsin’s Hardest I sat in a bar on a Monday night, with Larsy and Keef, probably 500 Schlitzes deep and thought “I bet we could run this show. I mean how much longer can it last? One, maybe two months?” This ridiculous little venture has lived twice the life of the Confederacy. 

But that’s not even the impressive part. Take a look at teams like Tunnel Snakes or Clever Girl. Those teams have been playing trivia with WHT longer than the confederacy existed. Shit, blud, Good Enough has been losing longer than the confederacy existed and not one street has been renamed Doctor Danger Dave Drive, or Dr. Danger Dave Dr.

Now, I’m not suggesting statues of me or Nick. Can you imagine the upkeep cost a community would face to erect such a memorial, immediately spray paint 500 dicks on it, then one week later topple it and drop it into Lake Michigan right next to the spot where the Milwaukee Deep Tunnel dumps all the sewage into Lake Michigan? 

That’s a lot to ask of any community. But would it kill Madison or Milwaukee to get a 10-percent larger replica of Luis Jiménez’s Blucifer, rename it Bamboo Harvester of Sorrows and place it in front of a municipal building? 

It’s something to consider. 

Here’s something else to consider. If you’re a team member of Gentrifiers of Kazan, let me know where the donation for last week’s win is going. If I hear nothing by Wednesday, we’re throwing it at a to-be-determined state park.   

For everyone else, get ready for this week’s Wednesday night show. Registration works like this. 

  1. 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 Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Global Headquarters, Rap Emporium and Internet Content Chop Shop.
  2. We’re still backing the businesses which have always backed us. If you make a purchase from Company Brewing in Milwaukee or Glass Nickel in Madison between July 1 and July 8. Send some sort of proof of purchase to greg@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com and your team is registered.
  3. Pick a strong team name, and then build an even stronger team.
  4. Tune in Wednesday at 7pm on https://www.twitch.tv/wisconsinshardesttrivia and get your brain scrambled.

If you have any questions, reach out to nick@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com or me.
