Re: Reretaken Down

I was gone for a while, so I never got a chance to comment on the 25-4 game ... I was in the stands at Nationals Park in 2015 to see them beat the Braves 15-1, which was their biggest win since the franchise had moved to Washington -- that was the night before I was there with you to see what turne...

One's been in the works, apparently for GSN. I tried out for it last November. I don't know what happened to it.

Why does the horror genre exist? Who wants to voluntarily feel a negative emotion (fear)?
Why does sad music exist? Why does spicy food exist? Why does the TPH education thread exist?

But you're the one with a Muppet avatar! (If I recall correctly, it's only a gong in the first season of "The Muppet Show" -- in subsequent seasons, Gonzo attempted to play a trumpet.)

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I owe an apology to my opponents yesterday: I tied patkav 6(3)-6(5) and beat trainman 6(3)-3(3). I missed both the science (bacteria) and math (witch of Agnesi) question which, quite reasonably, they assigned 0 and 1. It feels like fraud to make you assign 2 or 3 points to the stuff I actually knew...

I'm a bit ignorant of how the whole captioning process works, but I'm pretty sure it's not totally automatic for Jeopardy (because there are so many names in the 30 minutes). I wonder if whoever was captioning was copy/pasting for some reason (maybe spelling?) and just put them into the wrong spots...

Re: Tuesday, May 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I usually record part of Jeopardy and thus skip through the interviews, but didn't have that luxury today. The "I named my dog after Omar from The Wire but they have different personalities!" is one of the poorest I've ever heard. How did that get through the pre-show interviews? Because the contes...

For Randy's DD I said The Partridge Family. I don't recall the wording of the clue - was there something that leads one to the Monkees instead?
Stephen Stills was an adult by the mid-1960s. The Partridge Family were teenagers/kids (and Shirley Jones).
