Re: FJs for the 9/9/19 week

I've not only been in the National Air & Space Museum, I also got lost in it at the age of 6. I wandered off to see a really cool exhibit, and my dad found me about 30 minutes later. I don't even think I ever realized I was lost. And yes, I got that one right. 3/5 on the week for me. On Tuesday I co...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Still trying to decide if I want to re-up for LL82. I know if I don't do it, I'll miss it. But I also know that right now things are crazy and will be for the rest of the semester, and I don't want to accidentally forfeit. I have about 4 hours to decide....

Re: J! in the Media

A little late on this, but for Alex's birthday, the Cincinnati Reds' Twitter account used J!-themed fonts and answers throughout their game for the lineup & highlights. Two examples below: https://twitter.com/Reds/status/1153364350092140544?s=19 https://twitter.com/Reds/status/1153480533164400640?s=19

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

Simona Halep beats Serena Williams, 6-2 6-2, at Wimbledon for her 2nd major title. Serena remains 1 behind Margaret Court's record of 24 major singles titles. Novak Djokovic defeats Roger Federer, 7-6, 1-6, 7-6, 4-6, 13-12. The match was the first-ever match to utilize Wimbledon's new tiebreaker pro...

Re: TD 425: O-H-I-O (Final Standings Posted!)

Thanks for putting this together! My home-field advantage didn't help me much, but it was still fun!

And any fellow Ohio residents want to help me move in a week or two? I'll splurge on some Graeter's for any boardies who help in honor of this TD!

Re: Reretaken Down

Bottom of page 2? Unacceptable. Baseball fans be sure to check out the Google Doodle and be ready for some creative pitches. First time I've ever hit 800ft+ or 900ft+ home runs in any video game. In my 1st or 2nd game, I hit one 971 feet. From that point, I had to see if 1000ft+ ones are possible. ...

Did both of us say "The Ohio State University"? I remember before that was a thing and I'm amused it became a thing.
I'm currently a PhD student at tOSU, so you bet I did! Actually, I put THE Ohio State University. But close.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I knew Ritter from it being in lots of stores when I lived overseas, especially the German import store I went to on occasion. My opponent's second best category was food & drink, and third best was film. Guess which two questions she missed, giving her an 8(4) - 6(5) victory? So much for my .790 d%...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

After 5 straight wins to start the season, I've had 5 straight non-wins (3 losses, 2 ties), including my 2nd ever 0(1).

I think I'm at the mean now, so I can stop regressing, right?

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Lost my 1st match yesterday, and should've at least tied. Knew it was panne- something, but put panna cotta instead of pannetone. Knew it was a Ninja Turtle artist, but put da Vinci. Couldn't think of the word primate (Yeah. That one still hurts. :oops: ). Any of those would've given me at least a t...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

At risk of jinxing myself, after 4 matches I'm on pace for 125 TCA, smashing my previous record of 101. My first 3 days went 5-5-6. I'm also on pace for 100 CAA, which would come close to my previous high of 103 (set in a B rundle, and I'm now in C). It's still early, but the inevitable regression t...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Played my opponent for the 4th time yesterday. Got my 3rd 8(5) in those 4 matches. Granted, the other two times I had gotten that score he had forfeited, but still, just a little statistical quirk.

Also, I laughed at the MCWA for Q5. Took me a sec to even realize there was one.

Someone on here mentioned that they do crosswords on the Shortyz app (sorry, don't remember who), and that got me hooked. Just did the Jonesin' Crosswords from May 2, and 59-across is J! related. Let's do an apt clue. CROSSWORD CLUES "A" "Common Daily Double gesture (and bet) from "Jeopardy!" whiz J...

Re: Thursday, April 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've only been able to watch 2 games of his run, much to my chagrin. But what blows my mind is that after 11 games, his average score is close to the previous single game record. Where would his average fall on the one-day winnings rankings (taking his scores out)? 3rd?

Unbelievable.

If Jeff is right on everything, I got 34. Of course. Playing off the video for the other 2 nights, I got 38 & 40.

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Due to a slate of evening classes this semester, I can rarely watch. Tonight was the only night this week I didn't have a commitment and could watch, and the first time I've been able to see James play. Wow. I figured this was the first major record that would go down based on his wagers so far and ...
