Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 9/16/2020

Only Red River of the North, myriad = 10,000, and The Sun Also Rises. Gives me $3,600, not within striking distance.

Did get Final and all three DDs.

Re: ACM Awards category poll (9/16/20 spoilers)

I used to do well at country music categories, but I only got Underwood and Bærry. I've heard of Kelsea Ballerini, but had no chance on that clue. Never heard of Thomas Rhett (Rhett Akins, yes) or Old Dominion. He still loves country music But he's been left out in the dark 'Cause they don't play Me...

Re: FJs for the 9/14/20 week

:( :( :mrgreen: :( :( :mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: That's a good start to the season. Forget what I said Monday; I couldn't talk myself into remembering there was a building called the Pantheon. No response Tuesday. I wouldn't say I'd never heard of Berry Gordy, but I'd never have come up with him either....

Writer was the best I could come up with.

As with last week, I know I saw a game or two of this tournament years ago, but most of the games were new to me.
Planning to rewatch the college tournament, but if I miss it, oh well.

Couldn't even muster a guess Friday.

Pretty sure this was my first time seeing any of these episodes. And technically I didn't see Tuesday's episode, my local affiliate decided to run a rerun from this season that day for some reason.

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 2/4/2020

Vintner, A, liver, Dodge City, Hawaiian, Prokofiev, Eastwood.

$7600 by my count, which with a FJ get is enough, even if you take off $2000 for saying Nimitz which according to the poll I did.

Getting better on the Confederate sub. Knew it was something like Hunsley, but couldn't convince myself it was Hunley in time.
Slake.
10/10 for the tournament.

Re: Thursday, June 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm curious if anyone worked their way to a solve on this FJ. It feels like something you either had before Alex was done reading (me) or you weren't going to get there at all (the contestants). I had to shove James Dean out of the conversation (not British, twenty years off, car not motorcycle), b...

I considered California with Nixon and Reagan, but since I knew two were in Texas (Johnson, Bush-43) and had a plausible third name, went with it.

A country with a whole lot of people (more than the USA) that is a democracy. That is a pretty short list. Russia was a really bad guess, especially considering he was born there.

Relevant: 538: Which States Are in the Midwest?

Trying presidents led me straight to Lincoln, but I dismissed that based on figuring it's named for Abraham (correct) and not thinking of Nebraska as Midwest (eh...). Fortunately trying Midwest cities landed on Cleveland right away.

I said something like Pancho Sanza. The information was there, just scrambled beyond acceptability.

I considered the Grand Canyon but it made no sense.
Said Frank Lloyd Wright.
