Too Much Trivia in the Pants

A Little Light Reading

§ Thursday, January 23, 2014 @ 9:28 AM

Hola! We still have over thirty-six hours yet until kickoff, but if you need to kill a few minutes between now and 10:00:37 tomorrow night here are links to a few articles about this year’s contest.

We’ll start with this article from the Scene, which contains quotes from a couple teams about their annual traditions:
Extreme Trivia and Tradition: Lawrence University’s Great Midwest Trivia Contest

Next, we have the annual press release from Lawrence, complete with a typo wherein Garruda is misspelled as “Garradua”:
The Ultimate Intellectual Scavenger Hunt: Lawrence University Trivia Contest Turns 49

And, finally, we have this year’s article from the Post-Crescent, which is just a copy-and-paste job of the press release you just read (complete with the misspelling of garruda), except they excised a few lines and added an aside noting that the Iowans (who they didn’t mention by name) were not able to get their answer to the Super Garruda in before time was cut short:
LU to kick off annual trivia contest Friday

Howdy, folks!

In addition to our Facebook (established 2010) and Instagram (established 2013) accounts, Too Much Trivia in the Pants is now on Twitter. Just like everything else involving Los Pantalones, I’ll go ahead and warn you now that our new Twitter will probably be NSFW and not recommended for the kiddos.

One Week!!!

A little under 174 hours until go time (but who’s counting?).

It’s Official—Trivia XLIX is on

§ Tuesday, January 7, 2014 @ 6:46 PM

For those of you on our email list, I will be sending out that annual pre-contest epistle shortly, but for the rest of you I can confirm that Trivia XLIX will be January 24–26, 2014. Too Much Trivia in the Pants will be gathering same time, same place as last year, so I hope you all can make it out.
