Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I should have selected Savannah as my audition city, it seems.

(I ran a marathon in Savannah in November, while I haven’t visited Nashville in a couple of years; that was the main factor in my choice.)

Re: Reretaken Down

Blast from the past baseball alert: former Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano is attempting a comeback. I’m genuinely interested to see how this goes. Carlos was a prototype of the “power pitcher who can hit better than many position players” template that’s becoming valuable in this age of expanded bullp...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 11, 2019

Based on the answer sheet posted so far, I know I missed 5, 8 (data, oof), 17, 23 (are those the titles of Bill O’Reilly’s stupid novels?), 35, 46, and 48 (couldn’t get the second half). I gave “hypertonic” as the answer to 16, and I’m not convinced that’s incorrect yet. So, 41 or 42. In the range I...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 11, 2019

Successfully started the quiz tonight using a different computer and browser than last night’s attempt. Felt like somewhere in the low 40s, we’ll see what it actually was when the test is posted.

The test seems to have crashed for me as soon as the countdown timer reached 0:00.

I’ve gone from winning back-to-back TDs to sheeping every question so far. So much for momentum!

Merlin Olsen - 10

Maybe next time I'll think before I sheep. Who'da thunk Merlin Olsen would sheep?
Clearly, 10 of us didn't :mrgreen:
Maybe it’s not so impressive that Ron Burgundy is friends with Merlin Olsen.

Re: TD 416 - HHH (Final results)

I would love to know my record in clt013-hosted TDs: they so often include clues one would only get from living in the exact part of the country I was raised, it almost feels like an unfair advantage.

Great game, as always!

Re: TD 416 - HHH (Q1-Q5 revealed)

I’m protesting my wrong answer on Q5. I picked New Mexico specifically because I remembered an announcer mention during the Auburn-NMSU game last week that the Aggies hadn’t advanced past the second round since they reached the Final Four in 1970. In fact, they did make the Sweet 16 in 1992, but the...

Re: TD 415 - Anniversary Edition (Q1-Q9 revealed)

One of my favorite bands is named Wye Oak after the tree, and I had featured them in a TD I hosted a long time ago. I avoided it just in case some people remembered, but it would have saved me a point (not that I need it right now). I keep saying I’ll do another “songs from my iTunes library” TD som...

I kind of wanted to recreate Homer Simpson’s college application photo to submit, but I just used a picture from after the last half marathon I ran, and hope the powers that be are impressed by medals.

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

Six-time All-Star outfielder Bryce Harper will sign with the Philadelphia Phillies in a $330 million deal, the most lucrative contract in MLB history. (Manny Machado, who signed with the San Diego Padres a couple of weeks ago, will earn more per season of his deal, though.) Well that didn't last ht...

Re: Thursday, March 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When the FJ category was revealed, Alex said something along the lines of, “we’ve eliminated 50 percent of the potential answers for you.” Only 24 states lie largely west of the Mississippi, and the capitals of the two states where it flows internally (St. Paul and Baton Rouge) both sit on the river...

Welp, that was BRUTAL to watch. The questions over the course of this tourney don’t seem harder than everyday play & FJ was incredibly easy. I hope the Final is a marked improvement. I’m sorry to see Roger & Alex go but I do like Pam’s game. She knows stuff I don’t know. It looked like everyone’s f...

Re: TD 413 - A to Z (Final results)

Thanks for the TD, tried to get a little cute with the stadiums...I knew GA State was playing at Turner Field, but I didn't realize it had been renovated down so much since I believe it held like 55,000 for the Braves. UMass I knew played at least some of their games at Gillette, though I did think...

I will miss Harp (I've been watching him since he was a rookie), but there's no way the Nats should have spent that much. Yeah, the Phillies threw him stupid money alright.
and stupid length.
