I like your reference to Austin Rogers's trip idea. Does anyone know if he actually went on it?
He has recently been tweeting about a road trip in an old red beater Honda.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

It's post-mortem day! D Summit 2 15-7-3 (+32) MPD+30, TMP 100, TCA 73, FL 1 :cry: Ended LL76 with a win on perfect defense — 5(3)-4(4) — to cap a seven-game win streak (12-2-2 in the last 16 games), but still finished in a close fourth in the rundle, barely out of the C promotion zone. Third had low...

88% remember "fire and fury" ? Heck, I was the only one in my rundle to miss it.
Got so close with "force and fury". Oh well.

I still don't get Teshberg. On this episode, the role of Buzz Killington will be played by… me. CLASS MUSIC - Led by Johann Stamitz, a group of mid-18th-century composers, who played an important role in the development of the modern orchestra and classical symphony form, are associated with a "sch...

Re: Tuesday, March 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

To defame or slander "Malign" was given. I said "impugn". Judges? That's what I said, so I'd give it credit! I went straight for "impugn" as well, however a quick peek at dictionary.com reveals: malign — to speak harmful untruths about; speak evil of; slander; defame impugn — to challenge as false ...

Final Q. I am really curious about the look on Lisa's face when she realized she had won. Not quite a Zerg-cam moment, and certainly not the usual glee of "I won!" Seemed as if she was trying to figure out what happened. ???? Her reaction to winning both days so far seems to be stunned disbelief, w...

Did any of our resident Jeopardy! contestants think of John Lauderdale -- long time J! stage manager -- on that related question?
I didn't, but wish I had; it probably would have rebalanced the weight of my Kosman koin. (Instead, it landed on the side that said "director".)

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Had "voltage" but committed "capacitance". Had "stage manager" but committed "director". Lost 2(2)-3(3) instead of winning 4(4)-3(3). Womp womp. Forfeits in D Summit 2 have been particularly problematic, including a full-season Pavano. I daresay the standings might be significantly different if peop...

45 24 32 35 28 16 % Correct (Leaguewide)
So it wasn't just me who thought MD15 was brutal. :lol:

Tied 0(1)-0(0) in D Summit 2 and lost by "only" 0(1)-1(1) in the Jundle, and somehow that feels like a lucky result.

As indicated by my rookie finish in LL75, I'll be in D Summit Div2, as well as the Rundle in the Jundle. Let's see if my consistent string of trivial mediocrity continues for another season! :lol:

We are currently at an odd number for the "Rundle in the Jundle" Private Rundle, if anyone wants to still join! I've upgraded to Premier for the first time, so I'm in!

Re: Adult tests March 6,7,8, teen test March 15

IIRC when I auditioned the only choice in my time zone was Atlanta. That was an interesting drive from Virginia.

I wonder if I can just sign up and take the test again for fun. Would I risk bumping someone from a legitimate audition slot? I hope not.

Re: Football Category Poll (2/1/18 SPOILERS)

It's a good thing the poll lets us revise our results. I said "play action" for the $200 clue. I initially counted it as correct, I guess because in my sad excuse for a brain "play action" became "play option" which seemed close enough to "option play." I only realized my error through reading this...
