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...

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.

I played yesterday for the first time in several weeks. The game was hosted by the Rock and was plugging his new movie.
Same with me. I made it to Q12 (out of 15). There were 83 winners sharing a $300,000 prize. Each winner left with $3,600 and change!

Re: TD 372 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 4xx (FINAL RESULTS)

4th place, I'd say that's more like it for me. But it really isn't. I am surprised that this TD is the first one where I have cracked the Top 10, let alone the Top 5. Are cumulative scores for the Area Code TDs being posted as we go along? If so, I've missed them. Thanks for all your work on these!

Re: TD 371 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 3xx (309 & 312 REVEALED)

How disgusted I am with myself. Apparently I wrote down Museum of Science & History although I clearly know that building's name and on my scoresheet that I keep, I wrote it down correctly. So instead of an actual low score on a question (2), I get an 18 for incorrect. :lol: So through 10 questions,...

In addition to best overall score for these area cods TD's (thanks for putting these on!); can we also keep track of who had the most sheep? If so, I'm finally toward the top of a list, with seven (three of them being co-sheeps) :lol:
