Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

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:

Re: Wednesday, February 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have to say I'm going to miss Frank's energy on the show, but Rob, wow , great win, and excellent capper at the end with the live macarena performance. Seeing the two of you openly going back and forth with encouragement and fist-bumps on DDs was amazing, and really brought back the fun of J! that...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

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! I'm slow on the jump again, but I've signed up and hoping for (at least) one more to even it out again! (raises hand) As a D-lister...

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: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

What a delightful episode tonight. Marty, Frank, and Emily all got into it. It reminded me a lot of the shenanigans during my episode. I watched Buffy pretty regularly and would have negged with "teacher" on that clue. I love cars, and love Jay Leno, and love Jay Leno's Garage . I think what doomed ...

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...

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

:( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( If I'm going 3/5 in a football category, it has no business going 0/5 on the show. But I guess I manage to absorb a bit by having enough sports fans in my family and being somewhat capable of deriving entertainment from sports. Tom Landry -> Cowboys (and vice ver...

Re: Thursday, February 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ran the table on the football category and was a little annoyed it didn't come up in my match. I haven't read the essay mentioned in the FJ! clue, nor have I read any of his other works, but Kerouac was my first and only guess given the subtle teases in the clue. I've never heard of the term "amuse ...

Re: J! in the Media

Last night's 0/5 in the football category was the quick, silly story leading into the 07:30 news on NPR's Morning Edition today.

Why couldn't that category have been in my game? :cry:

Re: Monday, January 29, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Like others here, I came nowhere near a draft card in life or on tonight's show. I thought the 2 responses were the flag and the cross, though neither one quite makes sense... :roll: I stayed with the former. I would more likely have thought of "bra" than "draft card," I think, though I'm familiar ...

Re: On Potent Potables

I feel like there should also be one for when someone gets a wrong answer saying "Buda" instead of "Pest" (or some similarly two-possible-choices answer) and Alex says, "oooh, sorry, you picked the wrong one." I feel punch-drunk every time I neg on "Tigris". This came up in the Friday night match, ...

Yeah. It was hard to watch. You could actually see the panic set in. And then grow. And grow.

Took the tease-out bait on Q1 to the wrong Reggie.
What wrong Reggie did you go with? Smith? That's the only other baseball Reggie from that era I can recall.
Uh… yeah. About that. I responded Reggie Miller. He played for the Rockies, too, right? :oops:

Re: Trip report: Day trip from central Missouri to SPE (long)

Fly into LA, attend a full taping, and get home the same night? Madness! That's amazing!
It's just so cool to see where the magic happens. I look forward to hearing the inside scoop on those April games. ;)

Re: On Potent Potables

And TWO drinks if the player says "true daily double" when they could have bet more (i.e. they have less than $1000 in SJ, less than $2000 in DJ). When done, wipe your mouth and say, "No, doofus, THAT was a true daily double!" as long as the mouth wipe is done after slamming the glass or bottle on ...

need to take a drink when Alex jinxes a champion by mentioning Ken Jennings
Would this include getting on Twitter or JBoard to offer to buy that champion a drink as consolation for being jinxed?

Re: On Potent Potables

More about the phraseology of J!: (1) Alex says "Let's go to work" or "Welcome aboard" at the top of the show (1) Alex says "And finally..." before revealing the last category in a round (3) Alex leads into a clue that is not a DD by saying "Answer..." (2) Alex starts to say "And now the last clue....
