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 show up just before the show started, order as many as four baskets of chicken strips and then dominate a trivia match. But that wasn’t all of it. Too often we were pushing that bar tab dangerously close to the $100 mark. We would each put in a full day of work and Monday nights we would each, essentially, pick up a second shift at Red Dot. And the next day, with a not insignificant amount of fog in my brain, I would go write press releases and bunkass white papers about how antibiotics in your porks and chickens is no big deal and how the cigarette industry is on your side. 

It was honest work. 

What I’m getting at is I am in the throes of a Slightly-More-Than-Mild Hangover Wednesday. I suspect I’m not the only one facing this. But it’s time to get it together. We’ve got a trivia match to put on tonight. And players, hear me out, we’ve got a hot one for you. Not only are we talking about fictional boats. We’ve got Darts in the Graj FKA Dreadlocks and No Socks: Tales From La Playa coming in with a steamy last place request category. Plus, we’ve got Gremlins 2: The Scrambled Eggs Benedict Cumber-new-batch in the mix after last week’s third place finish earned them a free entry. 

Of course we’re nearly ready for everyone to get in this mix. All you need to do is:

  1. Registering for Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia will be $10/player, or $50/team of six players. Teams can still play with more than six players, but will be docked 10 points for each additional player. Drop your payments on paypal.me/SlashGreg.
  2. Once your team has registered, you’ll get the password to the Zoomiary.
  3. Be sure your teammates know your team name before the game starts, this will allow us to put you on the right team.
  4. Finally, if you have any questions, drop an email on Nick@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com, Anjali@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com or Greg@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com and we’ll get you in the mix.  

Until then, stay up and stay cool.
