Re: Tuesday, November 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks for the kind words, all! It was the ride of a lifetime. And twitter thinks I'm a serial killer on adderall so there's always that! I do wish I had the chance to show some more personality, but the fact is I knew I was up against a superchampion, and there was no room for kicking back. No reg...

Re: Thursday, November 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't like the rendering "do's and don'ts" for that phrase. I understand the need for an apostrophe to distinguish the first word from an operating system or a Spanish number, but I feel for the sake of parallelism that the last word should then be "don't's." But I also unders...

"Cold + French + world capital" should lead to a WECIB response. Going there in the late winter (March) was the coldest I have ever been. To me, skating on canals = Hans Brinker (Dutch), and in my mind I could just hear Swedish Chef saying, "Vinter-ludə," so I stayed in Europe w...

Another vote for Long Island. Have been to upstate New York, but no closer than Albany to NYC.

Dithered between Punic and Carthaginian, went with Carthaginian.

I said "deacquisitioning." The word wasn't directly nailed to Knight as a direct quote, so I'm going to count it. I wouldn't be surprised if it was on the sheet as an acceptable response.

Darn Copernicus prevented a field of green.

May have been kinda sorta vaguely aware that Gibraltar was kinda sorta eponymous. Just enough that I was pretty confident in the answer without really knowing why.

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

When it comes to COVID and the shot. I work for a small engineering firm. Early this summer a healthy 56 year old CAD operator I work with got the first of two shots. Two days later he got sick, and I mean really sick. Went to the hospital about two days after that. A week later he's been transferr...

So I guess if it was Julian's sister who was pregnant, the sex of the baby would determine whether he was an aunt or an uncle.

As a soccer referee, I know that technically, the correct question for Foul Play $400 is "caution," not "yellow card." We caution the players, then show the yellow card to communicate that a caution has been given. A player never "gets" a yellow card because we don't &...

Re: TD 468 - 56 [Q1-Q4 revealed]

At least my TDs play relatively consistently. I had a mental coin flip between an answer that went unused (Margot Robbie) and an answer that turned out to be wrong. Yep, gotta a get a new mental coin.

Upside is that maybe TFB won't feel as lonely hanging around the all-sheep line.

The one I'm not sure if I got was the $400 clue: Trousers sections. Hilary responded correctly with "pants parts". My guess was "pants panes". Now before you neg it on the grounds that pants don't have panes... I guess some pants do have panes. https://www.brownsfashion.com/shop...
