Re: TD 360 - Taylor Made (Q1-Q8 revealed)

https://www.fifa.com/mm/document/fifafacts/mencompovw/51/99/03/133485-factsheet-fifahostcountriesoverview1930-2022.pdf From the FIFA website - it has FRG on 1974.

Re: TD 360 - Taylor Made (Q1-Q8 revealed)

On 7 I'm pretty sure I answered West Germany. Should that not be a distinct answer from Germany? My error (again) - I intended to lump those together by specifying "current" country, but obviously failed to do so and will correct the scores. Yeah, I dithered over whether West Germany would be consi...

Re: 2017 Current Events Study Guide

Today George H.W. Bush becomes the oldest ex-president at 93 years, 166 days and counting. Previous record-holder Gerald Ford died at 93 years, 165 days. (He was delicious.) It's a former president. Are you saying he's not delicious? Clearly time to start putting bets on whether HW will be eaten by...

Unlikely to ever be asked, but ... UCF becomes the first team in college football history to go from a winless regular season one year to an unbeaten one the next. Asterisk: Due to Hurricane Irma, UCF was forced to cancel its game against Georgia Tech scheduled for that week, which would not have b...

Re: Monday, November 6, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Surprised that the “Cave Wars” clue was an S&S. Given it’s a cave that’s a national park narrows it down to a 50-50 chance between Mammoth Cave or Carlsbad Caverns.

Anyone know what the blue ribbons represent?
Dark blue is the color of colon cancer awareness, in honor of the 16th player who didn't make it to Culver City for this event. They're Jason's idea.
Classy touch.

Garmin is headquartered in Lenexa; every time I look at workout logs from my running watch on their website, the map briefly centers on Lenexa by default before my route loads.

Re: TD 357: Autumn Assortment

Far and away, the most popular answer was "Harlem" by Langston Hughes. Five respondents answered with "Dream Deferred" - I found that the poem is often given with this title so I'm going to accept it. Nobody went with a Bukowski poem.

Nan from Brooklyn, Michigan goes on the list of champs from small places. A quick search shows a population of 1,192 or 1,210 depending on the year.
Also home to Michigan International Speedway, which increases the village’s population exponentially on NASCAR race days.

I just saw something on 60 Minutes on 10/1 about a young soccer player from Hershey, PA who plays for Dortmund club and I had high hopes that he would get us into the tournament but no luck.
Christian Pulisic, and he did the best he could.

Really, it's soccer; who cares. After last night, nobody: soccer in America is probably dead until we likely host the World Cup again in 2026.

Having Crown Royal made not that far from here (in a town I've visited several times) made it a pretty easy get.
Should someone try to come up with a mixed drink with Crown Royal called the Gimli Glider?
What about Crown Royal mixed with Royal Crown?
