But let’s wax a wee bit philosophical for a second.

Every year, we intentionally run this thing at a time when 100 reasons are conspiring to keep you home or away from trivia.

It starts the week after the Super Bowl, so everyone is tired and broke after the holidays.. and the weather is a God Damned JOY, right?

Then we run it through Spring Break and the 1st hints of good weather, which is a good reason to be off doing something else. Of course there are a number of events that go down as well – NCAA Hoops ramp up, St. Patrick’s Day, Various Spring Football games, The Masters, Daytona 500.. Hell, even if it’s just let’s sit on the porch and enjoy the weather.. there are a number of reasons to take a week or three off this time of year.. and you all come – every week.

Best money I spend every year

Thank you all from the bottom of my blackened and crusty little heart…
