Re: Thursday, June 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was stuck thinking Camelot referred to JFK, and plus Pligrims meant it must be some history of the United States. No idea who Clarence was or what he had to do with anything.. Went with Howard Zinn. :(

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I managed a win yesterday, but damn René Lacoste and his "alligator shirts" which are actually (apparently) "crocodile shirts."

Re: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's almost comical at this point. I was trying to get the rest of J! out of the Brownsville station and now news has broken in for Gov. Abbott's border update. Next up Birmingham at 1:30. Do I dare ask how the weather is there? That is the most common problem with airings out of AL. From the Sony ...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

I thought she did great and brought good positive energy to the show. Occasional off-hand comments bring some flavor to the show, but the one thing I'd coach her on is not to interrupt good game flow with them.

Like many boardies, I often lie awake pondering the ideal format of the next Ultimate Tournament of Champions. Tonight after I drifted off, the perfect megatournament structure came to me in a dream.

Nobody knew the British game show host? :( The first Weakest Link run in America was 20 years ago (wow). Only die-hard game show fans in America would get Anne Robinson, so it's no surprise it was a TS. Not a die-hard game show fan by ANY stretch of the imagination, but I got it because her episode...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Gotta say, I'm baffled that over half the league doesn't know what a first down signal looks like. Sadly, combined with my horrendous defense this season, that turned my six-pack into a 9(6)-9(5) tie. I'm not a football fan and had no idea, but I got it on a lucky guess. I got 3 points for it and a...

I thought Carver would play at 90%, minimum, due to the mention of peanuts, owing to the popular misconception that he invented peanut butter.
