Re: LL83: Learned League

I was a little surprised he didn't ask for both Frost and Nixon...I re-read the question like 15 times to make sure he only wanted one. 4(4) - 0(0) win to get me in the top 3 of D Magnolia D2. No penalty for putting down both. You could have even said Frost and Julius Caesar and been counted as cor...

It goes to show just how good Thorsten is that this is extremely rare.
About one question (at the most) per season is a total fustercluck. Out of 150, I’d say that is a pretty good batting average.

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

I suggested a five day total point match between these three in the TOC Final Day 2 thread. Glad they took my idea, even if they altered my suggested format. Seriously, this should be fun to watch. A bit odd it is airing in January and not February sweeps. Did the SJ series on ABC get decent ratings...

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

So glad James won. Close one and his second "loss" tonight though. Looking forward to the next big tournament now. 2001 ToC Finals 1: Tad Carithers: 3300-2000=1300 Brad Rutter: 6000-3500=2500 Rick Knutsen: 6500-3500=3000 Has Brad lost to a human or not? Pick an idiom for wanting to pin a loss (whet...

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

I have always imagined Alex would end his career with some sort of super-TOC with the top 15 (or maybe more) players of all time. With his health being an issue we don’t know if he will be able to host S37. So putting together a mega tournament for this season may be difficult. So how about ending t...

Said Lamentations since it kindasortmaybe fit the other part of the clue.
That was my WAG, too.
It was a lamentable guess.
My bad guess too....

Though I just learned now that the book is "The Lamentations of Jeremiah"... Closer even than I thought.
Another Lamentations here.

Re: LL83: Learned League

On the Captain Kangaroo question, I was shocked at Good Morning America being the MCWA, and that therefore over 1 in 10 LLamas thought GMA went off the air in 1984. I'm more shocked that many think the show was on CBS instead of ABC. There was a promo for Kangaroo where someone sang “Good morning, ...

I had already seen Dhruv’s response and Alex’s reaction but it was still moving seeing it on the show.

I got FJ, but I had always heard the phrase referring to how rich people live, not the poor.

Hopefully this game will silence all the Emma doubters. She is truly a top-shelf player. I think a lot more of us were in the position that it was unfair to award Emma a spot in the ToC rather than being "Emma doubters." I think it was pretty clear Emma had the skill, but the standard for picking T...

I said poles also and was amused that that was a BMS. I have no idea what 90 degrees latitude could refer to other than the poles. So they BMS that and let Adams and Roosevelt slip? I was wondering if there is an East and West Pole I never learned about. I was surprised Dhruv did poorly in PAC 12 a...

Still not seeing how the left would prevent Schoolhouse Rock from getting made today. The death of Saturday morning cartoons is why it isn’t happening now.

The owners of the Trump baby balloon took it to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Saturday due to the president attending the Alabama-LSU game. Someone then stabbed the balloon.

No, it wasn’t me.

In Prairie D2. We have 26 players this time so we have a pure round robin with no rematches. Even better, I don’t start out in last place!!!

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

In the category of presidential distinctions, the current office-holder may be the first to change his state domicile during his term. Which could make him the only presidential candidate who ran "from" one state for a first term and "from" a different state for a second term. https://www.nytimes.c...

Did Alex comment on Cindy only giving a first name? He's always accepted on J! with just the first name. It's the Oprah rule? Ellen rule? Here is what I added to the FJ! round page: (Alex: Cindy D'Agostino, we come to you first. Which two men did you think of? "Who are [*] and [*]"? The president w...

I think him being on the Nazi hunters wish list for so many years added to his (in)fame. It was big news when they learned of his death in the mid-‘80s.

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

The Spanish government exhumed Francisco Franco in order to move him to another cemetery. Don’t know if they checked to see if he is still dead.
