The League Lead Up

Players, I hate to be the one to put pressure on you, but someone has to do it. I know we’re all in our own sort of struggle right now and over the past 12 months, so you might not be ready to hear this news. Perhaps you need to steady yourself or kick back on your fainting couch. 

You do that. I’ll wait. 

Now that you’ve kicked back a bit, or if you’re someone like Clever Girl Dan, you’ve probably undone the top few buttons on what is surely a very nice flannel shirt, I think we’re ready for the news. 

  1. It is league time. That’s right, We’re are launching this spring league this Wednesday Night. St. Patrick’s Day Night. You know, Irish Mardi Gras. But instead of a king cakes and truly bonkers parades, there are pints of dyed green Bud Light at a bar with a name like Jimmy Dengates, Sean O’Malley’s or, ugh, The Claddagh, and the whole theme of the place seems to be Guinness posters, malt vinegar for your french fries and the worst bartenders. If you’re lucky you’ll stumble into the bathroom to see a poster of a woman with so much curly red hair, crouched beside an Irish Setter and the caption “We’re Irish” which you will spend the next 15 years wishing you could either forget or figure out.

    Typically, we wouldn’t start a league on a holiday like this but I’m thinking that this might be the best St. Patrick’s Day most of us have ever had. No pressure to wear dumb plastic hats and the ability to look at options for Dropkick Murphys songs and realize, I don’t want to listen to any of these. Instead we’re just indoors, tipping back a Mash Tundra or a Pink Boots DDH Hazy Double IPA from our friends at Company Brewing and kicking some knowledge with sworn internet enemies.

  2. It’s also Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick’s birthday, and I have to ask, what did YOU get him?

 

If you and your team are ready to try to take the take home the spring league top spot, I suggest you get to know some things about Ireland and then get registered by: 

  1. The Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia entrance fee is $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.   

The show starts Wednesday Night at 7pm central. See you then.
