Which house are you quarantining in?

That’s right folks...we’ve brought Twitter memes to an actual post on the blog.

Good morning everyone! Hopefully you are having a good weekend and aren’t stressing out because it is supposed to snow on Easter Sunday where you live and your 3-year old daughter really wants an outdoor Easter egg hunt. Which...may or may not be happening in my house.

Anyways, as a fun (hopefully) thought exercise, and because I am terminally online, I decided to bring Twitter memes to the site today for us to discuss. If you aren’t familiar with this particular meme, which is basically “quarantine house,” here is an example:

You get a house with a group of people in it and then you have to decide where you’d want to spend the next couple of weeks, or whatever indeterminate amount of time.

I didn’t want to do “just Wisconsin football players” or “just Wisconsin basketball head coaches you want fired because of no good reasons” because that’s boring. So here’s how we are going to do it. This is going to be an all-inclusive Wisconsin edition of the game with a few more twists.

Each house is going to have two hosts: one Wisconsin Badgers beat writer and one state of Wisconsin adjacent athlete. The hosts are going to be serving Wisconsin related food and drinks, which will be different for each house, they’ll be airing a Wisconsin related sporting event each evening, which will be different for each house, and you’ll be allowed to play one Wisconsin related card game (spoiler: it’s either sheepshead, cribbage or euchre).

Does this make sense to everyone?

Let’s take a look at the houses!
