Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

JBizarro update: KerryOakie continues to roll with 13 of 15 and an active 6 game streak! I had a miserable fail on the HBCU because I was focused on a single word term and purposely eliminated all or part of HBCU for the common description. Sorry I can't spoiler the graphic, but it is above my pay ...

Re: LL89 Jboardlite rundle is going Rogue for one season

Chalk up a surprising 3(1)-2(1) win on MD1 for me. Can't believe I was awarded 3 points for Nazca. Or, maybe I watched the segment of Unsolved Mysteries on the Nazca lines so many times that it seemed like just an easy clue for me. Well I was coming to this thread to say I completely forgot that we...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

American Revolution league may be the worst of all time. The questions are disgustingly obscure. The worst part is the smith's description calls it PG-13 and made it seem like it would be accessible. You'd think she would figure out halfway through that the questions were too hard and changed some ...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

In the JBL, Kerryoakie nailed two singletons getting "Tweet Cute", and "Daesh". And twelvefootsis1 nailed "Beauty and the Beast". Way to pick up the trash! I'm happy to support the singleton cause! My defense has taken a horrific dump the past few matches, losing or tying matches where I had more C...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I would like to see Linda Ellerbee do it. Was she ever on Celebrity Jeopardy? She was not. Next scheduled guest host will be Bill Whitaker, May 3-14. https://www.jeopardy.com/jbuzz/news-events/jeopardy-guest-host-schedule We know Mayim Bialik has already taped, too, so she's probably up after Bill?...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

After losing a frustrating MD13 6(5)-7(5), I handed my opponent a 7(5)-6(5) on MD14. I'd like to thank my lousy Pop Music record for the 3 on K-Pop!

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

This seems to be an unpopular opinion, but I love Bill Whitaker as a guest host. I only watch 60 Minutes occasionally, but I always enjoy his reporting. He has a very steady and precise voice that lends itself well to reading 61 clues. As an added bonus, he has a very strong mustache and Jeopardy vi...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Last time the Final Four was in Indy (2015), I went to the open practice at Lucas Oil. As a spectator, the venue is terrible. The court is elevated and there are bleachers on the actual field surrounding the court. It was impossible to see any action without opera glasses. However, I think it will b...

Stanford’s Tara VanDerveer became the winningest coach in Division I women's basketball on Tuesday, Dec. 15 when her Cardinal defeated Pacific 104-61. VanDerveer surpassed the late Pat Summitt for most all-time victories with win No. 1,099. Pat Summitt has 6 hits in the archive. Full article here: h...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

FYI, the American Red Cross is testing all blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies and (if positive) will use the plasma in treatment therapies. There's always a need for blood and it's a good way to check your personal antibody status. When I was sick back in March, no tests were available so I had...

Harry Styles and Ina Garten questions on back-to-back days is as close to wheelhouse as I may ever get. Keep the One Direction and Food Network questions coming!

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

GOLF hole?!?! I had my first beer in 3 seasons (sorry kerryoakie). At least I tied in my regular rundle? <insert shrug emoji> This season has been SUPER unlucky for me thus far. I have DE of 0.750, my TCA is ~50%ile in my rundle, yet I'm sitting 21st (one place above relegation). I keep hoping that...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

Since I knew both answers, I was annoyed to see the word "corvid" appear immediately after the "corvettes" clue. I did manage a lucky win on defense, despite rejecting my overnight inspiration of "breaks the internet". Not sure why but I must have heard it as a phrase without knowing its source. FW...

There's a bit of a gap with four players at 11 points, but morbeedo has a comma...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

After 6 days of horrible luck and defense, I finally logged my first win yesterday on MD7. I knew if I lost yesterday with 5 correct answers, the universe was actually working against me.

Now I can start the long climb from the bottom (and hopefully stay out of relegation).
