Re: Thursday, April 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

A great role and performance but I would have guessed Ralph Fiennes had won for Schindler's List . For supporting actor? Fiennes was nominated for supporting actor for his role as Amon Goeth, losing to Jones. Neeson was nominated for leading actor as Oskar Schindler, but lost to Hanks for his role ...

For the North Korea question, "They shall be met with _______ like the world has never seen," I went for a BWA with "negative press covfefe."

Two straight singletons and I'm still closer to last place than first. Edelweiss was the first song my wife and I danced to when we were dating, so it was also our first dance at our wedding. I had to pick it, and glad it was a singleton!

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Well, that untimely forfeit put me in the relegation zone. I thought for sure I had submitted early in the morning, and didn't check my email. I even remember typing "A Pinkle In Time" as a BWA attempt for the movie question. I guess I never made it down to the submit button, thinking about defense ...

Re: March Madness

Madness. In the jboard bracket group, we had 12 entries that chose 8 different champs. 5 of those are out even before the halfway point of the second round.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Tough set for BarrettM and I yesterday. I somehow remembered reflexive to give myself the 1 (2)-0 (1) win. The Oscar question was one of the fastest zeros I've ever given....which one did you go with, Mark? I picked Rainer, not entirely sure on any of the others.

Re: March Madness

So close yet so far.....only missed Houston from yesterday's game, and they won by 2 points. Otherwise was perfect. Not sure why I picked Buffalo, but I'm glad I did! Let's see if I can have a similar result today. Seems like most years I nail day 1, only for days 2 and 3 to go terribly wrong.

Re: March Madness

Really late notice, but I just edited my bracket for LL. Realized I had done the JBoard bracket last year and submitted an entry in it for this year.....and then I noticed that I'm the only one in it as of right now. 10 hours or so to submit, or I take home the top prize by default. Group is JBoard ...

I didn't put Sarah Hughes, I put Trinity River, FYI. I'm willing to give it to the player for brilliance either way, but do they ever call it Nakatomi Plaza outside of the movie? Apparently not. And I had no idea until I saw you post this....I was actually completely expecting it or the Hollywood si...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Thanks to a RTFQ error and poor defense over the last several days, I'm now in the relegation zone. My dad was addicted to the NCIS shows, and I knew them immediately....but thought we only needed to answer 1 city. I was given 3 points for it, and lost 2(3) - 3(3). D'oh!

Re: One DJ! Round clue from the 3/8/18 game (Plane)

My grandpa was part of the Flying Tigers in WWII, working as a mechanic/ supply driver. He was stationed in China (side note: he died way before I ever thought about moving there, but I do remember him teaching me how to count to 10 and say hello and thank you in Chinese.). I've seen one when he and...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), March 8, 2018

Tuesday from video: 35. Wednesday for real: 40. Thursday from video: 45. Too bad they're not testing tonight, I'd be on pace for a perfect 50. The 45 is way higher than my next highest of 40, which I think I've done twice now. Good luck to all, and hope to see some of you in Cleveland and eventually...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), March 7, 2018

If those answers are all correct, I think I got 40, which is a little higher than normal for me. I'm usually in the 34-37 range; taking yesterday's off the video I was right at 35. Got lucky on a couple of guesses, had a couple of brain farts that I should've gotten. But it looks like I passed with ...

Re: Thursday, March 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was anyone in the audience for the show? I keep wondering if they did any sort of explanation about the procedures to the contestants or if they just jumped straight to what they showed on tv. If the latter, I'd think the leader going into the tiebreaker clue would have an advantage--they (should) h...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

During week 1, my DE was 1.000. Now, through week 2, my overall DE is .654--and one of my opponents this week drank beer, so that drop is really from 3 days' worth of questions. I've given up 2 scores of 6 (3). One of them I won anyway, then yesterday I tied getting 5 right. Both opponents went way ...

Rough week. Only got Monday. Had toucan for Tuesday because of Brazil. Wednesday could think of any battle with -poli; I don't even remember what I threw out as a guess--and not that it would've mattered, but I think I read it as WWII. No excuse for missing Davis, but recent Oscars are jumbled toget...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

Back in B Prairie for another go-round at staving off relegation and maintaining mediocrity. See you on MD15, BarrettM! My brother got moved to A and moved to Elysium, so I won't be able to tie him for the 3rd straight season. I'll miss the sibling rivalry.

More Olympics that I don't think have been posted yet: Shaun White wins the gold medal in half-pipe, bringing the total number of gold medals the US has won in Winter Olympic history to 100. His old nickname might come up if they ask who got the 100th gold--The Flying Tomato. I doubt other athletes ...
