Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Is it too early to create a private league for LL81? I'd do it myself if I were a Commissioner's Circle member.

Re: Andy's Millionaire Experience

Thank you for such an informative post about your experience. It was a pleasure to see you perform so well. If you were nervous it certainly did not show.

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Finally got my first win of the season, 4(2)-0(0). Movies and TV aren't my strong suit, but being a '90s kid I definitely knew My So-Called Life and even watched some episodes when it first appeared on Netflix. And Seven Year Itch didn't sound like a medical condition, but I had nothing better. I n...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I'm back for another season in my comfort zone, Horizon B. Good luck to all boardies! I have already submitted Match Day 1, as Wednesday will be incredibly busy for me. Last season I strategically used my alloted ten days of advanced access on days when I knew I would have very little time to ponder...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I got bit yesterday by making assumptions based on the sex of my opponent. I assigned the beer question 3 and paisley 0. She got wort and missed paisley and I ended up with a 9(6)-9(5) tie and spoiling my first six-pack of the season. :( I was baffled that anyone would not put the 0 on Annie, yet s...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I did well on the midseason one day and came in 51st with 450 points. I only missed the video game question. I had Lebanon down first, too, until rereading it and "civilian" jumped out at me. I was happy to help Team Horizon by being the top finisher in the B Rundle. I seriously considered moneying...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

My opponents (public and private) mistakenly thought that my Canadian location meant that I would not whiff the Canadian geography question. Unfortunately, those 0 assignments still didn't help me win either match. It seems I had the honor of facing the family member who did not whiff on the Canadi...

I answered with Limoncello, not thinking hard enough about the specific flavor of the liqueur.

I might be on my way to making weird LL history. After eight matches, my record is 1 win, 1 loss, and 6 ties--including a 9(6)-9(6) tie.
I'm just the opposite. I have an active streak of 45 consecutive matches without a tie.

Accepting "qi" has got to be one of the worst calls I've seen.
Agree. There was no ambiguity in that question. I know it's difficult to consistently and fairly score every question singlehandedly for thousands of participants, but that ruling was a stinker,

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Ohio State used to be in the CCHA with Lake Superior St. and Michigan Tech. I'm glad that there were enough people who knew about these two colleges to keep it from being in the single digits. Michigan alum here. The Wolverines also used to be in the CCHA. And the annual Great Lakes Invitational ho...

A player introduced as having nine trivia trophies got out on the $5,000 question today. Curly leaf and Italian (a.k.a. flat leaf) are two main varieties of what herb used to garnish dishes? A. Parsley B. Cilantro C. Chives D. Basil I mean...they told you it's used as a garnish. You shouldn't overt...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Who else put Pac-12 for Q2 of the midseason classic? I went with the Big Ten because the final lyric in the University of Michigan's fight song is the "Champions of the West". Therefore, it made sense to me that they were "The West" back in those years referenced in the question. I also correctly d...

*Minor* tweak, but the upcoming season for #23 will be the 8th.

Thanks for putting this together. It hits so many high notes from recent pop culture and current events.
