Re: Thursday, May 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think I may have heard of lumbago, as my dad had a bad back, and sometimes referred to it as that. I was able to connect the dots to get the plumb from the beginning of the clue, but I just couldn't make the leap to the correct answer, and I couldn't get lumbar out of my brain, so I finally went w...

Re: TD 379 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 7xx (715 & 716 REVEALED)

This TD has been maddening. With each reveal, the first question I am sheeping on, and then doing really well on the second.

I mean Cernan is a sheep? Really?!

I don't know much spanish, but I got Family Feud based on "We surveyed 100 people..."

I didn't get the India question because I thought there was either more than one official language or no official language at all.

Re: TD 377 - 4/22 (Q1-Q5 revealed)

How is Shelia E a sheep? I figured that Clocks would be a sheep because it mentions time-pieces, but I guess everybody else thought it was one to avoid, too.

I least I got a singleton with Candace Olson. I have watched a lot of HGTV.

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

All of my knowledge of Roman numbers comes from the dates of films from the 20th century. (MCM at the beginning) and from superbowls. In particular, for Superbowl 50, rather than using L, they decided for that year only they would use 50, and then go back to LI for Superbowl 51, so it stuck in my he...

Re: Sports Jeopardy Still Alive

ESPN announce a week or so ago that they are going to have a new online streaming service. At the time I wondered if perhaps this would be a good home for Sports Jeopardy.

I agree on the strange wording of FJ!

Austin City Limits was one of the answers. Four of us chose it. You just chose the wrong one.

Don’t you speak Spanish? The Spanish word for rice is arroz, which is fairly close to oryza.

In previous TDs, I rarely take a chance on submitting an answer that I'm not sure of. This time I decided to take a couple of chances and I think it turned out. Knowing my luck they will be sheep anyway. There is also a Michigan area code with a Michigan-specific question, so I hope that pays off, t...

I remembered hearing that Rick Perry thought he would mostly be dealing with oil and gas interests as Secretary of Energy, only to discover that it's more about overseeing with the US's nuclear arsenal and nuclear reactors.

The following are stats that I got from https://deadspin.com/shohei-ohtani-is-very-clearly-not-from-this-planet-1825094229 are unbelieveable. He is so exciting to watch.

I didn't realize how close I was to my first ever 5/5.

I'm getting better, anyway. I knew that there was a pavlov for polish composer, but I couldn't pull it. I was trying for a polish sounding name.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

It came up twice last season though not first box. You either learn to match Balboa Park to SD or you don't. If the 4/6 clue had been second or third box no crime while not ridiculous for top clue either. No matter what, as usual, "very obscure" is 100% false. Okay, I still think it was overly Cali...
