The Golden State Warriors are the Sports Illustrated Sportsmen of the Year. I think they are just the second team to win the award after the 1980 US Olympic hockey team.

Re: Tuesday, November 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

^The Teen Reunion Tournament in Nov. 1998 was structured to have twelve contestants play four semi-final games, but only the top three scorers of the week could advance to the final game on Friday (since Dana finished in fourth place, she did get $7,500 while all the losing contestants got $5,000)....

Re: Tuesday, November 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

From the couch this evening, I gave the thumbs-up to Autumn's all-business approach; it recalled how both Matt Jackson and Niki Peters handled matters three seasons ago. At the mid-first round break, Alex's setup had me worried - but when he handed it off to Autumn, she took it in stride, with grac...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

So putting down Panama for what we handed over in the treaty is acceptable, even though it is flat out wrong. But saying the musical groups were named for places, which is at least technically correct even though not the exact answer, is not acceptable.

Got it.

(13 + 14) x 15 = not even a WAG on my part either. I can't for the life of me see an easier way to do 27 x 15. (Full disclosure: I spun my wheels on this one, and think it was pretty tough to expect someone to do on their feet.) 27 = 30 - 3 30 x 15 = 450 3 x 15 = 45 450 - 45 = 405 I know a four-ste...

Then again the large numbers of audio daily doubles in the early seasons may mean that none of those episodes ever see the light of day due to music licensing fees.
Could a Sony "house band" re-record the songs to get around that issue?

Gays, girls, then everybody else

And if you keep winning, I’m going to start rooting for your challengers. Runaway games are boring!
What would you do if a gay girl went on a long winning streak?

Yeah, I have no clue what the BMS criteria are any more.

A minor league baseball team in Madison, Alabama, is set to begin play in 2020. They had an internet poll to name the team and the winning name was the Rocket City Trash Pandas.

I missed stoma despite the fact I had one for six weeks earlier this year. Ouch and ouch on both accounts. I hope that you have recovered well from your surgery, and that better things come your way. Thank you. I am doing better, though the recovery has been a struggle. On the bright side, I still ...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Accepting "qi" has got to be one of the worst calls I've seen. Down there with "appeasement" for Sudetenland. And, while I'm thinking about it, accepting anything other than The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover . It's a title; it's either exactly right or completely wrong. I agree on those....

Re: Jeopardy in Houston will be changing time slots

I've asked them, and will post when I get a reply. From my experience seeing KTRK's social media in the past: Please tell me that your "asking them" is more than "sending a tweet at an account that has generally not replied to people" (otherwise, I would say "if I get a reply" would be more apt, an...

bamaman, I see you are 7-0 so far. Congrats! I guess it's a good thing that I'm not playing you until late in the season. Thank you. I’m sure I’ll regress to the mean by then. I have been lucky so far in that what I know has been spread out in my favor. Jumble the order and I’d have drank three bee...

Scored a 0(1) yesterday with isotope as the only correct answer. Of course, I wrote down William and Mary and golf , but somehow keyed in other letters. Would've lost anyway. Moving on... Funny, I spelled WIlliam and Mary "Y-A-L-E".... despite that I got the win 5(3) - 3(3) due to my WAG of dogs (w...
