I also blew the Daily Double where the key word had both faro- and -equi- in it that lead me to think of horseshoeing.
Poll request: I was incorrect with some version of "playing horseshoes" on DD1 Tuesday

Re: Tuesday, January 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Golf and others like to comment about math and J! players. The clue is as much math as anything. It would be fun to know how Gabriela connected the Madonna song to a possible two more chart appearances. Am the right age that the song in question was right in my wheelhouse. Even so, initially focuse...

Some serious negbait in this one.... 1936 Olympian = not Jesse Owens F1 driver from German speaking country = not Schumacher Guessed "playing horseshoes" for DD1 because that's where "iron" and "horse" led me. I've been looking at maps and can't figure out how the Catskills are between the Mohawk an...

Re: Monday, January 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm assuming, by the way, that Montenegro is ruled out only due to its size and not also due to the fact that it borders the Adriatic rather than the Mediterranean? I think of the Adriatic as a subset of the Mediterranean, but maybe I'm wrong. It gets a little dicey there with Adriatic vs. Mediterr...

Coryat $38,400 (45 R, 1 W)
DD 3/3
FJ :mrgreen:

Felt a little off my rhythm on these boards. Negged with viejo for añejo - the latest example of where knowing a medium amount of Spanish is worse than knowing none at all.

Managed to reason my way through FJ in about 5-10 seconds.

Paper doesn't BSOD What's BSOD? Blue Screen of Death (clearly you are an Apple user :) ). I'm not, but--man--I haven't gotten one of those in a long time.

You have to read the arts and entertainment sections of good news sources. This is a fact.

Sure enough, I'm starting to make progress in those categories wher...

Saving TPH the typing -- Yes, the "Tales From" question was way, way undervalued at $400. It's polling 6%. I don't know what they were thinking on that one. Sometimes it seems current TV is treated like it was 30 years ago, when there were only a handful of networks and a limited amount of content,...

Movie quotes in DJ is always no bueno for me. Managed the top two, nothing else. Negged with "chorus" on THIRD $800. I'm having trouble figuring out how "lots to say" leads to "orchestra" even with some Googling. Concertos can be described as a dialogue between a soloist and an orchestra, with musi...
