Re: Besides Ken, Brad, and James, what other contestants could be considered GOAT?

In baseball it could end up being Ruth, Trout, and Bonds as the undisputed top 3 position players of all time...if you can overlook the chemical help that Bonds had. Anyone who omits Mays from that conversation needs to go back and look at his stats. Don’t forget Ted Williams! Ted Williams I would ...

Re: Besides Ken, Brad, and James, what other contestants could be considered GOAT?

I know there were some amazing people at trivia nationals who auditioned, who might put up equally gaudy stats. Why not bring them on instead of these pros? Yeah, in the wake of Holzhauer, maybe Austin Powers will finally get his shot. He'll wipe the floor with pretty much everyone out there (thoug...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Got the win yesterday 8(5)-6(4) but my opponent did get the math question right, despite math being her second to worst category. I can't say the term "twin primes" sounded familiar at all to me. Very surprised Mersenne Primes wasn't the MCWA. That's certainly what I put down. Can't say that in all...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

This really should be a tournament, though, of at least 15 players. Roger Craig oughta be involved, as well as Emma, Buzzy, Alex Jacob, and others. I'd put in David Madden and Larissa Kelly as well, especially since they were a part of the winning team in All-Stars. I disagree; there have been enou...

Re: Tuesday, November 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wasn't that FJ a LL question in the not-too-distant past? Or maybe it was a pub trivia question that I encountered. Whichever, it was an instaget for me last night. The new champ had better learn not to guess quite as much if he wants to be a repeat winner. It was one of the LearnedLeague Live ques...

Re: Friday, November 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Agree there was no reason for Emma not to bet it all, Francois is not even in the conversation so she had literally nothing to lose. And also agree there was no need for James to bet more than the minimum needed, don’t have the numbers handy but it was $2500 or so. But in all likelihood neither of ...

Re: Reretaken Down

IF Japan had curbed its imperial ambitions (such as not attacking French and British territories), and IF they had not allied with Germany, and IF they had not attacked Pearl Harbor, would we have gone to war with them? I know they were concerned about our ability to disrupt their oil supplies, but...

Re: LL83: Learned League

It didn't matter in the match results, but I was given credit for "serum albumin" on the blood question. Any thoughts?: is that effectively close enough to the more general answer of just "serum" or did the scoring algorithm see the intended answer in the first word and stop there? I couldn't tell ...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 11/14/2019 - Thursday TOC (SPOILERS)

New News for $200 was definitely a "huh?" I didn't say Snake for two reasons: 1. James said it too quickly, 2. I forget the category. Especially #2 would have made it a much simpler clue for me. The only two major tributaries of the Columbia that I can think of are the Snake and the Willamette. Sin...

Re: LL83: Learned League

On the Captain Kangaroo question, I was shocked at Good Morning America being the MCWA, and that therefore over 1 in 10 LLamas thought GMA went off the air in 1984. On the math question - well, I really, really need to learn already to check my work before submitting. I misspelled "pentagon" as "po...

Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Typical performance from James, but Emma was hanging in there. After looking good in both QF and SF games, Francois just looked outgunned in this final. I hope he can come back tomorrow. Got FJ with plenty if time to spare from the Jeremiad hint. It was pretty clear from body language that both Jame...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I am curious how many people who got San Francisco knew the question was about the Federal Reserve and how many just guessed a city in the West. It would have been a better question if the missing city had been Richmond or Cleveland. What's frustrating for me is that just several weeks ago in pub t...

Re: Wednesday, November 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

These boards felt like the easiest of the TOC for me. Good job by all 3 players but the FJ put the game in Francois’s lap. I got there from Torr, too. (Bernoulli was Swiss, BTW). Did anyone else hear Francois say “The Girl on a Train”? I did as well. I was sure Alex would announce a scoring change ...
