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

This appears to be the cover that the FJ! clue referred to. I'm not sure when it was published, but it looks fairly modern.

Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Sweltering cabin" = "airplane" occurred to me pretty quickly -- I've been on quite a few planes where the ground-powered air conditioning wasn't cutting it during boarding, and the flight attendants have used the P.A. to reassure everyone, "the cabin will cool down once we close the door and get th...

FJ! was an instaget for me. It seems like a link to the speech in question goes around on social media every few months.

Incidentally, the "I ❤️ NY" logo was designed to promote New York state tourism (and the trademark is owned by a state agency), but it's often assumed that it specifically refers to New York City.

I had my best finish in an A rundle -- 6th place. I also led A Lyceum in defensive efficiency, at .750. Good season for me.

Never been to an IKEA store and never had a desire to do so.
Don't like Swedish meatballs? The stores can be fun even if you're not planning to buy any of the assemble-it-yourself furniture.

This is the text from Babe Ruth's Hall of Fame plaque (actually in all caps, but I've put it in sentence case for easier reading): George Herman (Babe) Ruth Boston-New York, A.L.; Boston, N.L. 1914-1935 Greatest drawing card in history of baseball.

Katie Couric's daughter who writes for the TV show "The Boys," if anyone is curious: Ellie Monahan Good show overall, but I’m surprised the SONY clue stumped everyone - we’re literally on their ground! "Make.Believe" was Sony's slogan for only a few years, circa 10 years ago. The current slogan is "...

Nuts, that figures. I missed last week because I spaced it out that it was Thursday night. Maybe Penguin might have that, or others on his YT channel?

One reason for thinking the show's effect was exaggerated: Few people were listening. It was on against Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy, one of the most popular broadcasts of its day. Although supposedly, a lot of people flipped from the Edgar Bergen show on NBC to "War of the Worlds" on CBS when...

I have reverse East Coast bias - I live about 15-20 miles from Brookline and can't believe that so many of you have been there, much less know that it's in Massachusetts.

I couldn’t believe 22% guessed Dolly Parton. The question (to me) clearly said the artist is no longer a country singer.
Dolly Parton has transcended mere "country singer" and become a demigoddess.

Wait that's a comedy?? I turned it off after 10 minutes because it was going to be too intense of a psychological horror movie.
Well, the Golden Globes also categorized "The Martian" as a comedy.

Blue Jays fans still show up in force at their annual series in Seattle. At least it seems like Blue Jays fans outnumber Mariners fans, but maybe it's just that the Canadian fans are more boisterous. :) ""My favorite summer thing in Seattle is when 20,000 surprisingly awful Canadians drive down to ...
