Re: Monday, November 27, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The perils of pre-taping: Al Franken and Pocahontas are not responses you would want to be looking for today. At least the Indonesian volcano they referenced isn't the one that's about to blow. "Today's episode of Jeopardy was taped before the tragic events in Pompeii last week. We send our thought...

The perils of pre-taping: Al Franken and Pocahontas are not responses you would want to be looking for today. 27 right, 1 wrong today, which is a new personal best, so hooray! Strangely, I didn't 5/5 any category, but I did get at least one right in each. If only I didn't fall for the Commander-in-C...

Re: Thursday, November 23, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

My experience with Turkey usually involves a fair amount of "Final Jeopardy," but today, the bird made it safely out of the oven just in time for me to tune in. (Yeah, and Iran into the kitchen as the timer went off to confirm that it was bordered on all sides by grease.) uuuuuuuuuugggggggggghhhhhh...

Say what you will about Kim, but I don't remember "Tagging Along With Teresa" coming close to Kardashian ratings.

Re: Tuesday, November 21, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

(Bias alert: I was pulling for Wilbur as I grew up in Suffolk County.) My take on Final: If the only correct response was "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band," then I think that's a bad clue, but it was judged fairly. If "Sgt. Pepper" was acceptable, Wilbur got screwed and should be invited back...

22 right, 3 wrong today. Was 100% on Kim Kardashian for Final, remembering her outspoken opposition to Armenian Genocide deniers. I only had five seconds left when I realized that it said "Albanian," and I panicked and threw out Nadia Comaneci. Turns out she's Romanian :oops:

When was the last "Those Darn Etruscans" reference? I thought that went away in the early 90s.
Courtesy of the Archive, 2008-6-30 had THOSE DARN ETRUSCANS in J and THOSE DARN EQUESTRIANS in DJ.

Re: LL70: For the LLamas

Nothing gives me more joy than taking a point or two from someone who went to a brand name university. I've taken points from Cornell, Columbia, and Harvard this season. (Quick correction edit: I lost to Cornell, but drew the others. Two of six points gained ain't bad.) I'm 18 and can't afford commu...

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

We're 15 MDs in. I am still winless. I'm the only winless player in the Rundle. And my opponent for Monday is the second-worst player. Please, for all that is good and holy, give me some questions I know.

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

I'm proud of surviving the first week without dropping to position 20, but one more 0(1) seals my fate, and with the third-worst defense and second-worst offense, I hit bottom on point differential. In fairness, my CAA is also highest in the league, but my record would probably still be 0-6 against ...

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

Journey To The Bottom Of The Table: The Benny Berrafato Story. Put up my first ever zero yesterday, and somehow stayed at position 19 of 20. I have 22 matchdays to climb 7 spots, which is unsettling given my -13 MPD at this point. How are you people so smart? Do you read books? I should read more bo...

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

And that person you're facing today is me. Good luck....I think. ;) Haha, best of luck to you as well! Can't help but feel a bit pessimistic given my performance yesterday. On a related note, who's the only person who missed the Tesla question in my ENTIRE rookie rundle? Yup, that's me. At least it...

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

Check that, I have two goals this season: staying out of Rundle E, and winning the Best Wrong Answer award. I'll have a loooot of opportunities for that second one. Although George W. Bushranger was a bit too obvious to get the nod today.

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

Alright, who else is in the "just got pistol-whipped" club? Had a 1(2) against a 7(5). Second worst score in the Rundle vs second best. And, interestingly, the best and worst scores came from the same bout - 9(6) and 0(1). Today I'm matched up against someone who posted a 4(3) and lost, so hopefully...

My goal this season is to avoid Rundle E. Gotta dodge the bottom 8. It will be difficult, and I'm more likely to fail than succeed. But if I do my best, I can have no regrets.

My first day in LL is tomorrow, and that means that I'm only a few months away from my first day in Rundle E. Best of luck, everyone!
