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...

Re: Friday, March 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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.

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.) Harper’s most famous quot...

Shocked that no one got Five and Dime, especially after Seth set it up for them. It's a pretty generational term. I know it only because I'm a retail historian. I only barely remember seeing any of the big dime store names in operation, and I'm 31. Most of them went through myriads of closures in t...

Re: TD 411 - Millennial Medley Revenge (Q4 Standings)

Thanks for sharing those videos, SenseiCAY and RJRouge. I too have had a more difficult time listening to country music over the last five years. I still listen, but do not feel the same enjoyment about every song that I did when I was a (younger) kid. Trace Adkins hosts a throwback countdown on Si...

At least my alternative would've sheeped even worse on Q2...I'm a little embarrassed to say I had a huge country phase and Chattahoochee was one of my favorite songs at some point.

Re: Reretaken Down

How do you fix the NFL’s overtime rules? My personal proposal: The overtime period begins with six minutes on the clock. The kicking team is guaranteed a possession; a touchdown on the opening drive of overtime does not end the game. In addition, the kicking team is entitled to as much time used th...

Re: TD 409 - 2018 in Review (Q7-Q8 revealed)

I love obscure sports, and sports where people can drink beers while competing. If “The Ocho” was an actual channel, I would probably watch it nearly every day, like I do with the Olympic Channel. Has anyone seen the ax throwing championships that have been airing off-and-on ESPN2 lately? Dang, I di...
