Re: LL83: Learned League

I am embarrassed by how long it took me to remember Mildred Pierce . For the golf one, I was like, "Medinah? That sounds familiar. No idea, though. submits THAT's why I know Medinah." Didn’t recognize any of the places but thought golf, bc what else? Then maybe tennis? Thought both too obvious and ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I was a little surprised he didn't ask for both Frost and Nixon If you know one, you know the other. For most, probably. But I could see a player, especially a younger one, taking a stab at Nixon, given the date, but either not remembering Frost or never knowing about him. This is exactly how I cam...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

ABC shows are on Hulu, but with the ownership and the regular show being syndicated, does anyone know yet if this will make it to Hulu? I think there would be a good chance this is on Hulu/ABC On Demand. I am not a Hulu subscriber, do they have Celebrity Family Feud on there? They would have to neg...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I learned from tossing linseed to not discount the existence of a stupid answer. Also, unlike linseed, I couldn't talk any doubt into myself over heavy water. Exactly. He's human and makes mistakes. I've never understood the "it's in the question, so it CAN'T be the answer" mentality. It's a common...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

This really should be a tournament, though, of at least 15 players. Roger Craig oughta be involved, as well as Emma, Buzzy, Alex Jacob, and others. I'd put in David Madden and Larissa Kelly as well, especially since they were a part of the winning team in All-Stars. but we've basically had this man...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Re: LL83: Learned League

for the heavy water question:

did anyone else specifically not put heavy because of the word heavier in the question. Even with the bad music/film question, this took away my win and gave me a tie :(

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I thought you were referring to contestant eligibility in normal games. The eligibility says you cannot be a contestant if you were on a Trebek show. If there is a new host, I imagine they would keep the Trebek exclusion. Why? I would think the opposite -- that it once again opens it up to any Treb...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I can't imagine a host change is going to change a previous contestant's eligibility. Art Flemming and Alex Trebek J! I consider two different shows because there was a break in between them. all tournaments are invitational, and the Trebek era contestants always come down to Ken and Brad with Brad...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

Just had a thought I don’t like.

Since this hasn’t taped yet, is this going to be Alex’s goodbye, and will close the book on the Trebek era along with the players it contains (other than next TOC eligible)?

Re: LL83: Learned League

I lucked into a 5(3)-4(3) win yesterday largely because I lucked out on there being a film question that I actually knew, but also because my opponent inexplicably gave me a 2 on Rijksmuseum when they also knew that one. About the only time that I ever look through an opponent's question history is...

On the Captain Kangaroo question, I was shocked at Good Morning America being the MCWA, and that therefore over 1 in 10 LLamas thought GMA went off the air in 1984.

I'm more shocked that many think the show was on CBS instead of ABC.

Re: LL83: Learned League

I had a tragic crossing of wires on the TV question: my first thought was "Captain Kangaroo," but then I ruled that out because I was sure it ended in the '60s, with that famous scene of Clarabell the Clown speaking for the first (and only) time. But alas, that was "Howdy Doody," and Bob Keeshan ha...

How do only 43% get Hot7G when spotted 'mansion' and 'Hawthorne'? I was surprised at that one as well. I was only guessing, but I very quickly went to thinking about titles with a home in them. Fall of the House of Usher came to mind first, but I knew that was Poe, HOT7G came to mind quickly, even ...
