Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My guess for FJ was Regis Philbin. But in retrospect, Fred Rogers made sense, given the clue.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I finished with a new personal record TMP (83) and was one correct answer short of a personal best for TCA. Finished 9th in Foundry E so there I will stay for LL89, 2 points out of 5th. The top 5 who made the promotion zone really outclassed the rest of us so I had no chance to get back to D level t...

Martika rules. Martika's Kitchen should've been #1 too. #martikafacts
A few weeks back, the VJ Big 40 countdown on Sirius/XM 80s on 8 featured a second hit from Martika that I barely remembered. I had forgotten she had a second hit, after making such a big splash with "Toy Soldiers".

Mark me down for Appomattox for FJ.

Today's game was a classic case of two players very close to each other going into FJ and the third place player way back, betting conservatively on FJ and hoping the other two would wager big and miss, which is exactly what happened.

I also said Charlie Hebdo for FJ, although I did have doubts that an opera from the 19th century would contain someone named Charlie. My doubts were confirmed with reveal of the correct answer!

Re: Tuesday, March 9, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I tried really hard NOT to like Katie Couric as a host but after just two games, she's doing a fantastic job. She seems excited to be on the show...and she relates well to the players, both as a host and during the contestant interviews. If she were The One, I wouldn't be disappointed at all. It's g...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

On one or two match days every season, there is a slate of questions that just seem ultra easy and I get 5 correct...and MD 11 was one of those. The only one I missed was the opera question. Apparently, this batch was easy for other people in my rundle, too; there was lots of GREEN showing up on the...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

For the Pop Music question on MD8, I racked my brain, trying to think what group might have had five #1 albums in a row while also having 22 top 40 hits in the 1970s. All I could come up with was Chicago. Wings never occurred to me. I was surprised they had that many top 40 hits...and I was a regula...

Re: 2021 Current Events Study GUIDE. Study GUIDE.

Civil rights leader Vernon Jordan, close advisor to Bill Clinton, passed away on March 1st at age 85.

I thought he had passed away a few years ago.

If Bibi crossed my mind, I never would have thought he was in office that long. I had no answer.
I didn't think of him, either...but after the answer was revealed, it made perfect sense. All I could do was sigh.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

How many got the quilt question here? I was nervous assigning defense. I knew it because I live in Alabama and have heard about the quilting ladies. I just didn’t know if it was widely known or if it could be puzzled out. It seemed to play hard, though not as hard as Joker’s Wild. NHOI. I missed ve...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I was amazed that the get rate the Joker's Wild was so low in my general rundle on MD6; only 3 of 30 got it. In my private rundle, 8 of 10 got the question correct.

For FJ, I guessed L'oreal...and just broke out into a big grin when Avon was revealed. Seemed so easy in hindsight!

I'm not good at movies, but "movie and its sequel win big at the Oscars" = The Godfather.
That was how I got it. I haven't seen the movie or its sequel in a few years so I wasn't 100% sure it was Coppola but that was my only answer for it.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Both of my correct answers on MD1 were guesses. I don't listen to much modern music anymore so Driver's License for the music question was a real guess. For the Australia question, I got credit for Banjo Bart...again, a real guess. I missed the easiest question of the day (Caterpillar). Lost in my r...

You could just see David deflate after the DD miss. How heartbreaking that had to be. I felt sorry for him...but that was a HUGE wager in a category that wasn't just knowledge-based.

I guess I didn't fully grasp the FJ clue...I said Downhill Skiing. I mean, figure skating is figure skating and in the TV listings, it is still described as figure skating. I like to watch figure skating so I was very disappointed to have missed FJ.

I have been moved to Foundry as well for this season. This is the third or fourth different league I've been in since joining a few years ago. I guess that's a sign of growth for LL.

Re: Wednesday, February 10, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm liking the STEM categories this week. Wednesday, I got 4 of 5. Did not quite understand what they were asking for with the coordinate system until the answer was given...but I was thinking of something that must be in three dimensions (given the picture) but couldn't come up with any ideas. Then...
