Cue the crying for Nate only having one "The" in the Hawthorne title.
But he was missing the important one, wasn't he? Has another rule been changed when I wasn't paying attention?

Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The writers misspelled "minuscule" in the "Moolah" category. I have a feeling that "miniscule" is eventually going to be considered an alternate spelling because it appears so frequently. I don't think that's happened yet, though. We've had this discussion before... https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I was pleased with my top 5% finish in the Nerdy Jokes 2 1DS. I was pretty sure that the question about the Elvenking would be hardest, and I had that one nailed. For years decades, my favorite tough trivia question to spring on fans of The Lord of the Rings has been to name the fathers of the eight...

just use a computer to read off the questions and be done with it...the host isn't all that important...less chit chat from the host and more trivia questions
At some point, you may want to consider the possibility that not everyone views the world the same way that you do.

I should have gotten FJ!.

Re: Monday, April 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The “12 labors” angle never occurred to me until Alex mentioned it. But it was an instaget because I remembered reading “The Cretan Bull” when I was going through my Hercule Poirot phase. That's what makes Jeopardy! so great! I had Poirot based on "mysteries" and the date - kept looking for the TOM...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

After being a ronin for a few seasons, I decided to go home to (C) Taiga (Div 1) for what may be my final season, depending on how I feel after LL80. I've been in C for 12 consecutive seasons (not counting LL78, which I sat out) and it's starting to feel a bit stale. Part of me would like to try B ...

Stephanie took the quick lead out of the tiebreak then wasn't heard from. I think Kate's modest wager makes sense from a bottom box in a trap category where they clammed on George Washington. Enough clues to recover, too many to guarantee a crush, just stay in the hunt. Poe was a WECIB for me. It w...

I think this is one of the earlier times I've clinched non-relegation (as long as I don't forfeit). I'm currently sitting in the lowest spot in the promotion zone from C to B. I had been thinking of making this my last season in LL; I'm not sure if a promotion after a ridiculous number of seasons in...

Re: Show tickets question

I suspect that with the news of Alex Trebek's diagnosis that there will be extreme demand for tickets to the remaining taping sessions this season. You're likely correct. I've made two visits to Culver City, and I'm thankful for both of them for different reasons. The first one was in October 2012 ...
