Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

I am very excited to say that despite still winning the Correct Answers Against race in A Magnolia, I successfully pulled myself out of the relegation zone. I managed to defeat my opponent one place ahead of me, swapping places with him. Not sure if that is a good thing though. The stats in B Magnol...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

cmp146, I underestimated your knowledge of horse racing! Good match. I'm glad we're both out of the relegation zone (for now, at least. I'm still dangerously close). Yup, I also had a shelf-full of horse novels at age 8 (okay, so I still have a shelf-full of horse novels). :-) I am also the current...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Congrats to alietr for your 9(6) victory against me yesterday.

I am having the stuffing kicked out of me this season. My 55 TAA is second worst in A Magnolia, and I am in the relegation zone. <sigh>

I missed stoma despite the fact I had one for six weeks earlier this year.
Ouch and ouch on both accounts. I hope that you have recovered well from your surgery, and that better things come your way.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

MD8 Q2: What is the word used to categorize birds, colloquially known as "perching birds," that belong to the avian order that makes up more than half of all living birds, including all songbirds (swallows, larks, cardinals, crows, wrens, finches, orioles, etc.)? The term is derived from the Latin w...

According to French law, only 12 casts were allowed to be made of the statue. One is right here in Washington at the Hirshhorn. Now I need to go see it (I'm sure I've seen it before, but didn't recognize its significance). I highly recommend the Rodin Museum in Philadelphia. http://www.rodinmuseum....

What are the specifics for this Rundle in the Jundle? Happy to have my butt kicked again...
BigDaddyMatty has been setting it up previously- we would need a Commissioner's Circle member to set it up for this time around.

Re: TCONA 8

It was lovely meeting many of you this weekend, and I had a great time chatting and playing with Hbomb1947, BigDaddyMatty, and ReddPen among others. It was also great meeting ACThomas during the 500 questions written and run by TriviaWayne, which was quite the trivial feat. Boson and I also got to t...

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Congratulations to Vermonter, who won A Magnolia!

My performance this season was less stellar- 99 TCA, and a 23rd place finish, but it was enough to still keep me above the relegation line.
