I can quite get the wording of the joke right, but if Meg Ryan wasn't already considered a cougar, she will be soon, since she's engaged to John Mellencamp.

Let's hope he's finally found that lover who won't drive him crazy.
This post hurts so good.

Highest-pitched voice in Jeopardy history?

Re: TD 400 - RR (Q1-Q11 revealed)

Who said Chicago, and who said Rosemont? Bill Wirtz (the owner of the Chicago Blackhawks) was a notorious cheapskate who never allowed boxing or wrestling cards at Chicago Stadium, and later the United Center, so I knew all of WWE’s shows in Chicago are actually held at the arena in Rosemont. It onl...

Re: TD 400 - RR (Q1-Q8 revealed)

I seem to have gotten considerably worse at this after I started actually using gamesmanship instead of just answering what I consider to be the most obscure answer I can. Oh, I definitely score better when I either respond right away, or don’t even click on the game thread until the night before i...

Re: TD 400 - RR

I have heard of the medley relay in swimming, but what is it in track? A race in which runners race four different distances that add up to 1600 meters, each increasing in distance. I don't think the race is run often anymore, maybe not at all. (I don't remember how I answered that question in my r...

Decatur is the seat of DeKalb County in Georgia, which is pronounced differently than DeKalb in Illinois: specifically, the “L” is silent. There's a Decatur, Illinois, as well, thou...

Re: TD 398 - MINI-TD #4 - Q3 RESULTS

I thought I was going to sheep each of the first three questions, so I’m happy to be near the top of the leaderboard at the halfway point. I feel good about one of the remaining questions (I asked it on one of the TDs I hosted), but I also expect to hit the mega-sheep at the end, as I have on all of...

Re: TD 399 -- Halloween-ish Quiz

There is a non-zero chance this game includes the nastiest piece of negbait of all time, and I tauntingly walked straight-on into it, even commenting on it within my answer.

I wonder if the question I asked a few days ago kept other people from putting down the Hawks, or if no one was going to, anyway.
It kept me from writing in the Syracuse Nationals, who became the Philadelphia 76ers. I would have sheeped either way.

Re: TD 397 - SS

How lenient will the scoring be on Q4? Depending on the source, the same weight class can have several different names.
