Re: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A Sunday early in the year made me think of the Super Bowl first, so possibly taking that out would have made me get it quicker...(And yes, I now know it wasn't called the Super Bowl until the year of that Fugitive finale...) For the record, the Super Bowl, i.e., the NFL-AFL championship game, didn...

Re: Football pre-emptions

Looks like ABC (LA)'s Thursday show will be at 1:07A Friday instead ...and apparently that's not football related, that's the debate... Correct, the only football preemptions on KABC should be Monday, November 18 (Chargers on "Monday Night Football") and Monday, November 25 (Rams on "Monday Night F...

Sorry trainman that the players did not complete your category.

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

I'd always wanted to visit there, but when I read up on it, the consensus seemed to be that it is underwhelming, ticky-tacky, and there are basically two groups fighting over it. So I haven't bothered trying to get there. I wouldn't take a special trip all the way to Iowa for it, but if you're in t...

My money is on Brad Rutter somehow winning even though he's technically not competing.
A couple weeks ago, a friend of mine beat Brad Rutter at pub trivia without knowing who he was. (Not at O'Briens, at a different location.) So he's vulnerable, as long as people aren't intimidated!

Amy Dolenz! You should get that on your flashcards just on principle.
That's AmI (with an I). She is very cute as a genie in the late-'90s late-night cable-TV staple film "Miracle Beach."

You didn't have to know anything about the Olympic results to name a winter sport in which someone is a "skip" (and in which the competitors get enough "face time" that people know their nicknames).

Also didn't recognize anything in the "Good" category. Not even the voice of Judy Hopps. Doesn't look like she's been in anything else particularly notable, either. If TPH thinks an actor isn't notable, that's a sign that they're notable: Ginnifer Goodwin was one of the wives on "Big Love," and was...

Until they ruined pinball by shortening the game from 5 balls to 3 and started jamming electronic flash at the expense of gameplay. Pretty soon, all you could find was Bally, and I never saw that free game reel roll to 99 again. And that immensely satisfying THWOK of a free game won. You could feel...

The difficulty of the question came not only from the relative obscurity of the play, but also from the fact that you had to be able to decipher at least the gist of the German title and know enough about the play to identify it based on that context, or alternatively know that it was written by a ...

Perhaps this isn't the appropriate place for this question, but when I was at the contestant interview, the woman in charge (Maggie?) made a point of saying that Ken Jennings's record will never be broken. How could she know that? Why would she say it so boldly? What does she know that we don't kno...
