Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Weird season for me. I was ninth in Horizon A in both primary offensive stats (TCA and TMP), fifth in DE, and second in UfPA. All of that added up to a 7-15-3 record and 22nd place in the standings. The really weird thing is, my MPD was only -1, owing to a ridiculous 0-9 record in "one-run games." ...

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Annoying defensive loss for me yesterday, 6(4)-5(4). My opponent missed fracking, which I assigned zero. This despite his 30-31 lifetime performance in current events. And, yes, I know that question was officially classified as science, but to me it was very much a current events question. Seems al...

Anyone from the September Omaha auditions gotten the call?
If I’m not mistaken, an Omaha auditioner was a new contestant at the 3rd podium on March 20.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

Another Pac-12 here. The first playwright/actor I thought of was Tracy Letts and he blinded me to anyone else. Buried Child should have been the tip-off. I admit I don't have a photographic recall of "Nighthawks" so I had to think of old sports franchises. I completely forgot Phillies was a tobacco...

Bestselling Novels is a category that would’ve had me nervous, but this one was an instaget for me. I’ve read the book and watched the movie a few times.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

I'm up 118 on QPct from my long-term average. Regression is surely coming. *nod* I'm +127 right now. It's gonna be painful. I'm about 140 above my average, and in 4th place in my rundle. Last season I was in last place after the first week, and spent the rest of the season trying to stay out of rel...

Re: Daily Double Distribution Discoveries

I'm sure this has been discussed somewhere else before, but I am too lazy too search. :lol: More so than which column on the board, it seems like there are certain types of categories where the DDs tend to land, specifically things like literature, history and geography, and it is much less likely t...

Re: Wednesday, October 18, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

There is no way Manny could have felt HISTORIC CONNECTIONS was some kind of wheelhouse. He went for a GBOGH (go big or go home) and will do the latter. Ouch for him and a nice gift for Joanna. That is not the standard way to make a sole solve of the FJ! clue pay off. I sometimes wonder if there is ...

Re: Wednesday, October 18, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think the word "breakthrough" is what led me astray. It doesn't seem quite like the right word for the eradication of smallpox. Exactly. Doesn’t seem like the right word for something that we had been creeping up on for years. I, like Manny, went down the IVF path, although the phrase in my mind ...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Hi all, I'm just wondering if anyone here has had any success in rescheduling their audition or attending an audition in a different city, if they had a major conflict? I was fortunate enough to get an audition invite in Toronto but I'm out of the country and can't fly back early. A part of me is s...

Is a local news story about the Omaha auditions worthy of this thread?

Re: Thursday, September 28 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I agree you should be able to determine the clue was pointing to a NYC borough. Then it's just a matter of picking the correct one. Well said. I was very surprised by the "Atlanta" response, not so much by the "Manha" start to an answer. Might be worth proposing as a poll question -- "Narrowed it d...

I was there, too! (I was the guy singing Taylor Swift :P ). Good luck! Good luck to you as well - would be great to see anybody (including Rusty the ineligible meteorologist) who was there on the show. :) Rusty was pretty good - too bad he's not eligible! Good luck to you both!! Of course they put ...

So I auditioned in Omaha yesterday afternoon. A few notes: There were 18 men and 3 women in the group. (Also, a local meteorologist participated for fun - there was a video of the report on the WOWT-TV web site.) Maggie said that Sports Jeopardy! is officially "suspended". Order of events was somet...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I received an invite for Omaha, but have a trial that can't be moved. They were very nice about it and told me I could come to Tampa when it is scheduled. It seems like forever since I posted here, but just got an Omaha invite yesterday--my first real Jeopardy! invite ever! (Auditioned for Sports J...
