Re: TD 399 -- Halloween-ish Quiz - Scores through Q7 AND BONUS

Through seven questions I have five sheeps (one of them a co-sheep) while already using my drop. So really it's 5-of-6; I wouldn't have chosen Lara Logan on question 2 had I known :lol:

Re: HQ Trivia

After I don't know how many attempts, I finally conquered HQ last night. It took an extra life after missing round 9, but I am now $2.47 richer. :lol: Sure wish I didn't mess up an easy (for me) Q12 in the HQ football quiz on Sunday. I used an extra life on that one, missed Q13, then had gimmes for...

Re: Sports Jeopardy Still Alive

Anything new on this front? I haven't heard much on this recently, which leaves me discouraged.

very enjoyable TD. Thanks for hosting! I liked the bonus setup, always new twists to these games, which is good.

Re: TD 393 - A-B-C (Q1-Q9 revealed)

At last a singleton after sucking sheep all through this reveal. How is Hannah from Desperate Survivor a sheep? Hardly anyone watched that show. Certainly few people watched Desperate Survivor :D , a few more (but not enough) watched Designated Survivor. I'm still early in Season 2 on my DVR. I'm r...

Re: TD 389 - SHC (Q1-Q9 revealed)

Hmm... Brewers or Blue Jays? Brewers or Blue Jays? *** flips coin *** Aha, Brewers it is! Figured there were more ornithological people on here compared to adult beverage consumers, but that's what makes these TDs fun. This way, someone like myself won't blow a 4-point lead with a few questions to g...

I will be the idiot who said Harrison, McCartney and Starr.
That's not a terrible guess. It makes sense of the phrasing of asking for three specific people.
I, too, could only come up with these three as a WAG.

Re: TD 381 - Animals - Standings thru Q11

There was a St. Louis Cardinals NFL franchise from 1960-1988, so I would think if the Thrashers are allowed as a correct answer, then the St. Louis Cardinals would qualify as well. Or would that have to be noted in the response? Ahh, ok - thanks for letting me know. I'll fix that before I publish t...

Re: HQ Trivia

I got two wrong on HQ today, missing the island (extra life spent) and the baseball team (knockout). My dad knew the baseball question right away. I missed last night's game - what was the baseball question? I don't have the exact wording on me, but it asked which franchise did NOT start out as the...

Re: Wednesday, May 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

First Communion, for 8 year olds, would not qualify. A rite of passage could be passing from any life stage into a subsequent one. Retirement, graduation, first job, first kid, first alcoholic drink, and First Communion might all be rites of passage, but one only comes of age one time. While it use...

Re: Friday, May 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Now THIS is the kind of FJ I expect in a Teachers' Tournament. Too bad about Ranjani, I was hoping she'd pull out the win after running Shakespeare and coming up with "syzygy". But IIRC, she mispronounced "syzygy", did she not? Hard 'g' instead of a soft 'g', but still meets the show rules. OK. I w...

I couldn't get going on FJ. I ended up saying Pullman just on the off chance there was a movie about Pullman, WA I'd never heard of.
Same here. I'm certainly not a movie buff.

Fargo, though, what an interesting movie :)

No doubt. I hear ya. I wonder if the baseball question would have a different set of answers had it been this week, now that Ichiro has been released and apparently is retiring.
