Re: Wednesday, April 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I’m pretty good with geography but I totally blew that one! I said Alberta & Manitoba! I’ve tried using that pneumonic device (BASM) but I forgot it when it counted. How many days in a row is it for one hit wonders? Mnemonic. I'm pretty good with the provinces, but I didn't have a sense of where th...

It's spelled slalom but pronounced slolom. The first syllable rhymes with "fall", not the first part of "phallus".
I would assume Canadians typically pronounce it the second way. Kami is listed as being from St. Louis but I'm wondering if she grew up in Canada.

Mark one more for the AB and SK neg. I pretty much knew it was going to be a Kosman Koin, but I stuck with it.

Also NHO "two shakes of a lamb's tail".
I hadn't heard of that expression either, but my wife got it.

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

US State + named after an English county = only one choice as far as I know. Pretty straightforward once you ignore the coastline part of the clue. For me, the coastline part was the key. It might as well have just said, "This state has an 18-mile coastline." But that's what made it a good clue... ...

I knew FJ right away, then had a doubt - is it an "advertising character" if there's no product to advertise? It's a PSA character, isn't it??
This was me except I never thought of McGruff because I was thinking of actual advertising characters and none seemed to fit.

I keep trying to come up with 8 and my brain fogs over. I know no ketchup, and probably no mayo either. Which leaves mustard, relish, onions, chili, maybe bell peppers, and then my imagination just runs out of gas. Anyone have any clues? Sport peppers not chili peppers. Don't think they use bell pe...

Re: Learned League 84

My season ended with a whimper, losing the last three days. Still ended up sixth in A Fjord mostly due to good defense (.788 DE).

...Fawlty Towers in the '70s? Monty Python would've been a better guess. :shock: ... ?? Fawlty Towers was aired first-run from 1975-1979. It's true I suppose, MP would have been more likely to have an audience advisory... but I'm not sure what "concerns" either Cleese show ever addressed. The sale ...

Can we agree that the peacock clue was horribly misplaced, at least?
Definitely. I think they should have included the word "proud" in there to describe the bird and that would have provided the necessary TOM.

Re: Learned League 84

We've got a barn burner going on in Fjord A for the third spot. Right now third place has 28 points, but two of us are sitting at 27 (one of them being me), and one at 26 (FrankJ) and one just behind him at 25. Took a tough loss yesterday 4(4)-6(4) the differentiator being Mahfouz which I assigned t...

I had "Allende" but couldn't pull the first name in time. Judges? Do I need a first name to distinguish her from her father, even though he wasn't a writer? He also isn't likely to come up on Jeopardy! His name was Tomás Allende. Salvador Allende was her godfather and cousin once removed. Isabel is...

I think Aaron got the trifecta for the "al fresca" response, which was negged for being wrong on 3 levels - that's gotta be an achievement! 1) wrong language = wrong answer 2) wrong vowel ending 3) not in form of question. Tough day, didn't seem to be nerves, it just goes that some days you get the...

The whole Mandela thing is that when he died, there were a bunch of people thought he had died in prison years earlier.

Which is really stupid. His release and subsequent election as president were big news.
I think these people might be confusing Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko.

After seeing the FJ category my precall was the Bataan Death March and then I whiffed on the actual question. :oops:
