2014 – “TSPN: Trivia Sports Playing Network”

POSTER: 2014 - TSPN: Trivia Sports Playing Network

The Goat Posse became of legal age to drink this year, but that never really stopped the kids from imbibing on rhymes, skits, audio clips and wool. Posse members have become an ever-changing but critical mass of talent that is capable of running several projects at once. The intro kept Captain F. in a creative vein finishing a day early since for the first time ever, he would not be at KVSC for Hour 1 of the contest.

There were a few recurring motifs with including a follow-on PSA about male genitalia, this time with a sports theme. Additionally, a legacy production would say goodbye as the Posse pinched-out it’s last version of  the Stink series. Be sure to listen to the tearful farewell.

Last year the Posse re-discovered the gonzo producing style of trivia with Trivia News Night. This year a second broadcast was aired as the news team covered a major world sporting event, and predictably found the slimy underbelly. Way to overachieve kids. (More…)

[tab:Intro / Year in Review]

  • INTRO: 2014: TSPN

    The “modern intro” (those created since 2001), has always been a collaborative effort.  Captain F. and Wildman began creating these motif-ed montage masterpieces on their own, but soon recruited Coco to augment their efforts.  And thus it remained for nearly a decade…

    …until, 2011, when forces beyond the Posse’s control, delayed the production of the intro so long, that it required a team of super friends to complete the task and avoid certain disaster!  After that, things returned to normal, with Drrrty A joining the group of regular Intro producers.  And so it went…

    …until 2014!  After the technical and thematic perfection that was the 2013 Intro, the team didn’t know if they could pull of a repeat  of that year’s glory.  The Posse went deep into their bench, calling all clutch players – even those that have never contributed to the Intro – for clip and story line suggestions!

    But the Posse pulled through, in the ultimate display of teamwork overcoming adversity, and truly showing what good sportsmanship (and collaborative creativity) can bring to the plate!

  • INTRO: 2014: TSPN (Aircheck Version)

    The modern intro, in its true form; the way it was meant to be played.


    So, your team is world champion; time to order that over-priced video yearbook from a major sports print publication. The trivia Year-in-Review is not this; it is not really anything at all. But you will listen anyway, for one specific reason: Jo McMullen repeatedly says “balls”, with many different inflections and seems to enjoy it.

  • Challenge: Turducken

    A simple yet somewhat open-ended challenge that could have elicited some great creative responses. While none were received, one does wonder what sound a Turducken would make and what is the plural of the word.

  • GPO: Balls PSA

    It is one of the taboos of sport, proper ball care. Until recently few in professional, collegiate or recreational pursuits were willing to discuss this topic openly. Then a seminal moment occurred in 2005 when Chicago Cubs Shortstop Nomar Garciaparra suffered an avulsion of the adductor longus muscle. The whole world witnessed the horror of the exploding crotch dots and the possible destruction of a legend.

    Yet Garciaparra would perservere to become a catalyst behind a campaign to encourage others to speak out for better ball care practices. This announcement was part of that vaunted campaign that propelled ball health to the forefront of the sports nation’s consciousness.

  • GPO: Trivia Night News TSPN

    Last year the Triva News Team (TNN) won a coveted “Zimmerman” for their breaking news report on the Hamster’s new album. This year there was no letdown as they were all over the greatest sporting event around, the Trivia Olympics. TNN’s credentials proved to once again be unparalleled as they draw a surprising connection between world-class twerker Adam Neverlaid, bacon and Jim Gray.

  • GPO: Opera Got Back

    Imagine Luciano Pavarotti (he is an opera singer for those born after 1996) singing in his famous tenorous tone the line, “Oh my god Beckyyyy, look at her BUUUUUUUUUUT!”. That is pretty much all you need to know about this pitch perfect send-up of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 hit.

  • GPO: Now That’s What I Call Stink: 20 Years of Shart Topping Shame

    Twenty years ago the Stink genre was launched by pre-posse individuals Dave Lee, Troy Mum, Brad Savage, Aaron White, Chris Weis and others.

    In 2004 The Posse would lay claim to the mantle for no other reason than because no one else would. This year even the Posse has decided to drop this turd. Thus, with one last long, strained, grunting effort; Stink is being dropped into the composting toilet of history.

  • GPO: Wrecking Ball

    Originally planned to be re-make of the 2013 pop song, as with many ideas formed over Trivia Weekend, this quickly morphed into something very different.  After Skinny D and Coco played “It’s Raining Jim” for some Posse friends, Pissjah, Eustice, and Kacey, we all knew what had to be done.

    Pissjah, with minimal coaching, made this piece his own…in a very dramatic way.

  • GPO: Goat Shop

    “Goat Shop” was a project two years in the making.  Conceived by Posse friend, Jamo, during the 2013 contest, time constraints forced the group to table the idea.  But Jamo was persistent, and with good reason: this is the Posse’s strongest track to date!  Jamo, with the help of Coco, Skinny D, and posse friend, Piss-Juh, the lyrics were completed and refined.

    This was a truly collaborative effort, with Captain F. and Dude providing vocals for the intro, Bear belting out the vocals for the hook, Drrrty A screeching out her line, and Skinny D busting those phat rhymes, like you know he do. And we cannot forget Wireless Mic’s (another friend of the Posse) daughter for contributing some of the best lines on the track!

    Last, and certainly not least, Pokéjohn, who took our creativity to a new level with his mastering of production!


    Hey, Captain F! Can we go bar hopping?
