Re: TD 295 - A Tribute to Prince: EDITED & made EASIER!

When you accidentally combine the name of two people and ruin your chances of winning a TD :(

This TD should be fun though, lots of singletons for sure

Re: March Madness

Go away, Middle Tennessee State. Please :( For me personally, an upset this big would be so worth getting my bracket busted. Plus, everyone in our league has MSU going in the F4, so game's not over if Middle Tenn pulls this off It will take a miracle for MSU to come back. EDIT: And they didn't. Yay!

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

Ha! First defensive victory and it's a good one, 7(3)-4(4).

Now I feel better about putting Celebrity Lip Sync instead of Lip Sync Battle.

Re: TD 284: Just Images

My expectations were not last maybe, so this is a nice surprise!

A bit surprised at the results of the music question. I figured Kanye would be a clear sheep, instead of a relatively forgettable Vampire Weekend album.

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

Of course the one time I actually know the answers to more than two questions I face the guy who always forfeits. Ah well, I'll take the W.

Also, Smile rules, so seeing it on LL put a big smile on my face this morning.
