Re: Thursday, November 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I gave myself credit for "obtuse triangle." It starts with O and has no right angles, and it's a real term. A rare episode where I went 0/4 on the big clues, but a $33,800 Coryat and 40 R sort of made up for it. Tomorrow, all three contestants will be LLamas (a rarity), but it gets stranger... two ...

Re: Reretaken Down

So here's a different topic... Next year I'm planning a trip to Toronto and currently I'm looking at flights with a domestic layover, e.g. SNA -> SFO -> YYZ What should I plan on having happen outside of the ordinary, if anything, during the outbound layover? You can assume carry-on luggage only. I...

Re: Wednesday, November 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm a lightweight compared to many here - my Coryat hovers around 20K on average. I dominated this game, because of good categories - $28,200, 37R/1W (damn you, French stewardess - I said "bellhop"), and got all 3 DD and FJ!. Swept Disney, which is the easiest category I think I've seen in awhile -...

Re: Wednesday, November 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That Disney category was incredibly easy. Also ran You're Creeping Me Out Got the Badminton DD but no Lach Trash. Fared pretty well on both boards overall.

Re: Wednesday, November 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A near-runaway game without even hitting any daily doubles. Elise seems really impressive thus far. I'm hoping she'll win a few more games . I really am dying to see another TOC contender. i am not...she had ample opportunity to get the last daily double and secure a runaway, but she kept going bac...

That FJ franchise has been in the news recently enough that I remembered it was in Bend. Must've been a network news program or possibly Inside Edition.
Bend is a lot cooler than its name and having the last Blockbuster would imply. :D
is cooler than boring, oregon?

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

Colleagues at work looked into the Vegas betting odds for the GOAT match. As we predicted in conversation before they looked it up, prior to a lot of bets being placed, Ken Jennings was favored above Brad Rutter, but now Brad and James are about evenly favored with Ken being the underdog. has now c...

NHO in the top box: "Shallow" 0/5 in Husbands & Wives and Aeneid, Ran 11-Letter Words. Should've run Fictional Places, but blanked on both Milne and Keillor. All but "voice vote" in "Vo". That seemed considerably more obscure than "vortex". I, too, wouldn't have thought to guess "Caribbean" on the ...

Any reason I should know exactly how tall Robert Wadlow was? 8 seemed like a perfectly good guess. 0/5 in World Leaders. "Sandy Beach" sounds like it could be in literally any state with a coastline. All but "crop top" in Rhyme Time, all but $1,000 in both Cusp and Jump. I should've been 3/5 in War...

Re: Friday, November 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

They could have made the FJ at least a little bit challenging by asking for the island group instead of the two countries. That made it way too easy for a TOC FJ in my book. You used to be able to get abalone in restaurants in California, but I think nowadays the only way to have it is to catch it ...
