Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

What large stadium tournament event has typically been played in an outdoor arena? All I could come up with was NCAA Baseball. My wife and I went to a Germany-England friendly at the Silverdome that took place before the World Cup. The game was a shakedown cruise for the actual World Cup games. By ...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

With all of the years out there I'm curious why Billy Graham did not make all 50 states? I'm also thinking Millionaire could make a nasty high level question (if there are exactly three no-gos) of Which of the following states is the only one where Billy Graham had one of his Crusades? In 1981, Geo...

Re: HQ Trivia

Had my best day on HQ yesterday. Got the first 11 questions correct, then biffed Q12, which named three CEOs and asked which of their companies had the largest market cap. I answered "Jeff Bezos", who is the world's richest person, but the company with the largest cap is Apple, so "Tim Cook" was was...

Re: Learned League 76 - Official Thread

I got the phone number on a total guess. I thought it might have been an anti-Trump group, but I couldn’t think of a specific group or why they would have a hotline. I still lost 3(3)-4-(3). Same here, but I made up for it by switching my music answer from "English horn" to "French horn" at the las...

Re: 2018 Current Events Study Guide

Louisville becomes the first NCAA Division I men's basketball team to vacate a national title after the NCAA denies Louisville's appeal over the ruling in the escort scandal. Along with the 2013 National Title, Louisville will also be required to vacate a 2012 Final Four run, 138 wins (regular seas...

She owned a Mazda Miata. When the weather was nice, she drove with the top down; and she said that was cheaper and more effective than any known form of therapy. I could not agree more regarding this therapy, I will be so tempted to use this therapy over the next couple of days... I have an NC PRHT...

Russell Wilson, quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, has been signed by the New York Yankees (he was drafted by the Texas Rangers in 2013 and they traded him for "future considerations"). He will attend training camp in March and will be assigned to the Yankees' AA farm club in Trenton, NJ. Too bad...

Re: HQ Trivia

I'm not having much success with HQ trivia. My best showing was Q6. Almost invariably a pop-culture question eliminates me. I'm not complaining, I'm merely stating that work needs to be done in that department.

Re: Football Category Poll (2/1/18 SPOILERS)

I'll bet there's some buzz about their new head coach (Matt Patricia) and defensive Svengali who just got torched by a so-so offensive team. I do think he will be a good one. The Pats just don't have the on-field talent and they know how to get the most out of a weak hand. One of the hosts on 97.1 ...

Re: Football Category Poll (2/1/18 SPOILERS)

I'm just glad we can finally put that awful "defense wins championships" trope permanently to bed now. The adage that an NFL team can't win without a top-tier quarterback also took a beating. Hoss, Brad Johnson and Dilfer took care of that years ago. Tell that to the Lions' front office, which agre...
