Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I had felt like the questions had played easy the past few days, and yesterday's set struck me as one that would go down as historically easy. All the questions were instant gets for me except for the rap one. I was stumped as to how best to approach defense, but I did see that my opponent had misse...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

After beginning the season slow I now have 5 straight wins. Yesterday was lucky, 4(2)-3(3), but the questions had played really favorably to me the previous four days, as I had either 3 or 4 correct all four days. I said Polk for the communities named for U.S. Presidents clue. I went through all the...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Two quiz bowl-centric literature questions (I know, one was classified as theater) on the same day? Every day should be like that!

I did kick myself for not remembering Edelman's name, but I still got the win over a player whose stats should be good enough to be in an A rundle instead of D.

Re: Friday, March 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I went back all the way to 1788 for FJ. Once Colby's response was revealed I was pretty confident of what the correct response was. I was happy to get Pulp Fiction. I am not a big movie person, but I was all over that one. It did seem kind of YKITOYD, though the stacked field of Best Picture nominee...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I lost by 1 point yesterday after I came out on the wrong side of two 50 50 90 guesses. I thought Mexico first, thinking that they had an election recently and that was what the question was referencing, then I switched to Venezuela, thinking that it had to do with all the drama down there, then I s...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Finally got my first win of the season, 4(2)-0(0). Movies and TV aren't my strong suit, but being a '90s kid I definitely knew My So-Called Life and even watched some episodes when it first appeared on Netflix. And Seven Year Itch didn't sound like a medical condition, but I had nothing better. I ne...

Re: Friday, February 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

All I could think of for FJ was Margaret Sanger. Goldman doesn't ring a bell.

Keep in mind that Brad had one really bad game previously, against Michael Rooney and Steve Chernicoff...that he somehow still won. I think that it will take more than this to take away his GOAT status.

Re: Toughest FJ! clues Season 32 (9/14/15 - 7/29/16)

I voted for Pantheon, Mount Blanc, Scott Kelly. It was a pretty easy decision, given that we could pick 3. I had not known that Paris had a pantheon, I picked the Matterhorn over Mount Blanc since the former seems more famous/ iconic to me and there was nothing else other than the French name in the...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I rarely watch the show anymore because of having to work 2 jobs and am thus really rusty, but of course I am going to try for a third audition.

Best of luck to all the hopefuls!

Re: Friday, January 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Walker, Texas Ranger is probably my favorite TV show of all time next to J! and The Simpsons (I'm dead serious)...so of course I couldn't think of anything besides the Rough Riders.

Congrats to Steve-O on the win!

Re: Wednesday, January 16, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ because similar clues have come up before (notably a FJ in the UToC), but I thought that that was a tough FJ clue. But at least it makes 9 straight FJ gets for me!

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Talk about a forehead slapper on the Franz Ferdinand question. It cost me a win or a tie, as I lost 2(2)-3(1).

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I lost 5(4)-7(4) in the rock n roll ML yesterday. I was shocked that my opponent missed Radiohead, which I zeroed. I have a total of 10 TCA and am in 10th place, while the person who is currently in 9th in my group has 3 TCA. Maybe I should have played the France ML. I had 3 questions right yesterda...

Re: Monday, December 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ronan was my guess on the FJ clue, though I really wasn't sure if she had ever been nominated at all. I also considered Wallis, but didn't think she was correct.

Re: Friday, December 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was a ridiculously easy board up until the Gulfs and Numerical Hits categories. I thought that they both were tough, so I can't really fault the contestants. I did know Finland, Oman, and Two Princes (and One Headlight, which was not a TS), though. The FJ clue was a reversion back to the trend of...

Re: Monday, December 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I hadn't watched the show in awhile but I tuned in tonight and found this to be a very easy board overall, though there were a few toughies there at the end (Roget, Fairey, Raleigh, Under Milkwood). I was 14/15 at the first commercial break and maybe could have had Von Steuben with a few more second...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I was in the promotion zone to C (top 3) from the end of MD 12 through the end of MD 24, tied on the last day, and fell to 5th. It is probably for the better, as I really do not belong in C. My 59 TCA this season was my third lowest total ever (I had three previous seasons with 57 and one with 58) a...
