Re: Tuesday, May 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a tale of two halves! I almost picked up enough LT for a fourth podium win but fell just short. I’m sorry to see Emily go as she was a fun champion to watch. Instaget FJ. The clue really gave you all the pieces to put together.

Re: Monday, May 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was the exceptionally rare case when my FJ precall hit. I most likely woke my wife up with my loud guffaw upon the reveal. A $24k combined Coryat sounds very low. Is this a case for a Fourth podium poll, Opus?

Film buffs (and others, to be inclusive): My 1DS on Neo-Noir (Film Noir 1960-present) is live at Learned League today.
Hah! I didn’t realize that was yours, Randy. Fun quiz!

Re: Friday, April 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ had me going down a dead end. I saw the name Ix and immediately thought of Frank Herberts Dune series in which Ix is a planet. It wasn’t until halfway through Think music that I saw that it was a country, at which point I realized that I had no clue and went with Lewis and Narnia. Sad to say, but...

Re: Wednesday, April 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Why was Hari competing in regular J! Rather than the College Tournament? I get that you aren’t limited as you are in the tournament, but the inadvisability of a college sophomore going against two older contestants was on display tonight. Easy FJ even for this non-movie buff. But, oy!, that wager...

As a semi-regular visitor to Florida for the past 30-odd years, I knew full well that it qualifies as subtropical. Instaget FJ. Nice game by Dana. We’ll have to see how much staying power she has as champ.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I’ve been doing well in the puzzle ML. I hadn’t dropped a single UfPA through the first 4 days, then came crashing back to earth with a 6(5)-7(4) loss. I’ve been getting about half the puzzles but they don’t always help me: I got SPEAK from the shhh one and all 5 clues but couldn’t pull the 1996 hit...

Re: Friday, April 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Kelly lucked out here. He shouldn't have bet that dollar, leaving Dan a clear path to victory with no tiebreaker necessary. $1 is a rational wager here. He is about 55% to win outright (leaders are favorites to get FJ correct). Of the four 1st/2nd combinations R=right W=wrong If leader bets $1 RR w...

I thought exactly the same but felt that the Ameritrade guy was taller. Mikes probably most recognizable from several GEICO ads. Which ones? I've certainly seen my share of them, but don't remember him in any of them (not that you're supposed to remember the actors). Sorry — brain cramp. It was a P...

Re: Thursday, April 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I never really considered the "Horn of Africa" was an allusion to a rhino's horn, but it makes sense. Still a pretty easy FJ, I thought. I've thought Mike Nelson looked familiar since his first appearance, and it made sense to me when Anderson explained that he's been in many national commercials. ...

A well played game overall. I can’t recall another where the Coryats were so close. Teen tournament FJ. I correctly predicted a triple get.

Re: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not the greatest exhibition of J! prowess I’ve seen, but a solid performance by the champ. FJ had me flipping the Koisman koin between Olds and Mercury. Bah!

Knew quickly what they were looking for: that amusement park in Copenhagen. It took me to the end of Think music to come up with the name Tivoli. Surprisingly, I understood the thinking behind all 3 wagers.

Re: Monday, April 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was at first confused about the stalagtite neg, but got it as soon as it was explained. Pretty simple FJ. I was disappointed with Patrick’s DD3 bet, and it cost him. And I don’t think that word means what Mike thinks it does when he prefaced his TDD with “With no deference to you, Anderson...”

I have him just behind Ken. He’s got a better speaking voice than Ken and showed that he’s nearly as witty a host.

Instaget FJ. Brigham Young never occurred to me, but as someone who recalls the Stanford students voting for a new mascot of “Robber Baron” when their old mascot was retired, I wasn’t likely to miss this one. I wonder how pained the Cal alum Aaron Rodgers must have been reading that answer aloud :mr...

Re: Friday, April 9, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's too bad they discontinued 151. It was the strongest alcohol you could buy in California and I've gotten to make some special drinks with it. Too many people getting alcohol poisoning and suing the company I suppose. Allegedly, it was because 151's easily flammable, but there's never been an of...

Tonight it was Dennis who looked very impressive. FJ was pretty much an Instaget. 1930s American novella showing a rabbit and a farm? I’ve heard enough humorous riffs on the “tell me about the rabbits” line to keep it in mind.

Do you think they would have taken "the Hindu Triumverate" for the clue that wanted Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva? I'm counting it, for now.
While I did state all three names, I wondered if Trimurthi would have been accepted as the name for all 3.
