Today was the audition. Alex was there!
Legit though, he should keep the beard. It looks great.

I chose Philly for this last test, but I just got an email to audition 6/22 in DC.
Did you choose dc for a previous test?
I chose LA for this last test, but also got an e-mail for that DC audition, which I had chosen for the test before.

I've heard it called simply Augusta or Augusta National or Augusta National Golf Club but never Augusta Golf Club.

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

Well, shoot, Thorsten. If you had just asked this set of questions earlier in the season, I wouldn't have had to flip the Kosman Koin between Carole King and Diana Ross and would have won MD7. Hah, I specifically got that question because I looked her up after you had mentioned her earlier in this ...

Re: Wednesday, March 9, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

To play devil's advocate, the OED lists "a divisor" as a definition of "denominator." If we're going to accept meerkats because they're a subset of mongoose, seems like we'd have to accept denominator since its a subset of divisors.

On the "color" theme, a related movie trivia question: What 1974 crime movie that took place both above and below ground in New York City -- remade in 2009 -- also had bad guys who used "color" aliases? Can't remember if they had used colorized pseudonyms, but recently remade 70s crime movie that i...

Got it from the fact that news reports on planets being in the Goldilocks zone and whether they could sustain life come up every year or so. Took me a full five minutes to figure out it was a list of Olympic cities; for some bizarre reason I was stuck on what the country-containing initials may have...

Re: Jeopardy taping three tournaments in D.C.

Wish they would do this at a place like 6 and I. While the main stage is smaller, they could add room by taking over some of the front rows. And the acoustics/intimacy would be great. And much, much more convenient for Metro folks.

"Hundreds of thousands" made me think she needed huge cross-racial appeal so thought it had to between Aretha or Diana Ross; alas went with the wrong Motown Diva.

Re: TD 283: Going the Distance (Round 2 Complete)

Dammit, shoulda have read the scoring rules much more closely. There's effectively no punishment (or at least not much) for using 2 "ten-counts" provided you're confident in all your answers. Shades of Pacquiao-Bradley-level-judging. :lol:

Made out Charles in the anagram quickly, spent the rest of the time trying to figure out what the other letters could have assembled into and came up with squat. Did they expect someone to specifically know that pen-name or get Carroll based on "anagram"+"children's author" ? I'd be curious to know ...

Re: Sports Jeopardy! EP. 22 (2-17-16) [Spoilers]

Well, wasn't expecting that for some time, but Jay was super strong throughout. I thought he underbet on his DD's, but it didn't matter in the end, especially as he seemed to be the one actively searching for them. I thought I had heard Jay say "Gabriela" and assumed I had wrongly imprinted her name...
