Re: Thursday, December 7, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't get Joe's strategy on that DD - at that point in the game, you have to go all in just to have a chance to win. Which, we debate DD strategy all the time and I'm in the camp that says that it's hard to judge how someone standing there feels about a clue, but when you're almost $10,000 behind...

Thought the wagering was appropriate by all involved. Congrats to all! 50k for third is a good hour's work :D

Re: TD 356 - Ball-a-palooza (Final results)

Great TD. Of course I enjoy the sports trivia; thought I might find my way to Sports Jeopardy but that sounds like that is not meant to be. I think this is my first top 10 finish after about 30-40 entries. I always somehow find a way to Think Similarly to others. :D Congrats to the podium finishers!

Re: Eclipse Poll

After the 6 hour drive home, we forgot it wasn't Tuesday now. I guess we automatically index every time it gets dark. We decided to go Southeast from St. Louis as our best odds and headed to Paducah, Kentucky. Weather seemed good enough about an hour from there and we had 2:14 of totality. (deleted...

Re: TD 346 - Baseball (Q1 & Q2 revealed)

Seriously, my category, baseball. And I have two sheep through two answers. I knew all of the pitchers and almost all of the gold glovers. Ugh. I'm sure Ichiro won't be a singleton for me on Q3, and I'm guessing that Jim Kaat will be used by quite a few on Q6 as well. **sigh** not sure how to approa...

I'm pretty sure the hybrid Chevy is the Spark instead of a the Volt. The Volt is fully electric and not a hybrid. The 2017 Volt offers the best of both worlds with an electric charge that seamlessly switches to a gasoline-powered generator when your charge runs out. http://www.chevrolet.com/electri...

Not a good sign when one SHEEPS the very first question in a brand new TD. This SHEEP was HUGE! Oh well...
The dreaded double sheep to begin is double trouble! I'm expecting the answer to F. to be the sheep for Q3.

can't believe Tom Selleck was a singleton, he was the only name on the list I was sure of and was sure he'd be sheep or close to it.

I'm really impressed with the basketball knowledge of 9021amyers and merica. Unfortunately, my -10 bonus merely offset the fact that I missed the NIT question, which cost me 10 points. The bonus kept me out of the "First Four" in the final standings, but that was about it. Congrats to everyone and ...
