Re: SHC 2018--Introduction, rules, and wildcard eligibility

Dang it, guys--I'm out. The family roadster died a valiant death in the Sangre de Cristo Mts, and I'm just checking in to say thanks to the SHC organizers before I resume the hunt for a replacement. Y'all are awesome, and it was fun while it lasted! (If you see me busking with a Martin Backpacker on...

The Jets are life. Thou shalt not take Namath's name in vain, or confuse him for anyone else. Think of it as commandment #11.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 1 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

It's cold comfort to learn that I'm not the only player today to misspell "Hoochie Koo." Over/under 65% correct spellings? For the record, I got Hoochie right (this is possibly the silliest thing I've ever typed), but spelled Koo with a C. I typed out various combinations of Hoochie/Hoochy and Koo/...

Here in the central time zone, it's lunchtime! Maybe I'll go have some pasta with CLAM sauce.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 1 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

A colleague of my husband co-authored a musical called Nobody Likes Retsina, and I initially thought that was a character's name--like Everybody Loves Raymond.

Re: TD 389 - SHC (Q1-Q3 revealed)

Every time an interstates question comes up in a TD and I have to burn a drop on it, I tell myself that I'll finally study them...and then I promptly forget. *inserts another drop* Exactly. These questions disadvantage us New Yorkers, who already have to contend with the MTA! I could identify Arizo...

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well, I’ll be the idiot who ruins our run of perfection. Nothing came to me, even after I drew four triangles. Wrote down peace symbol and gave myself a concussion after Alex mentioned the atoll. I know the timing's way off, but "four triangles" led me to brassiere. I'd never have written it down, ...

Re: I'm Sick and Tired of my Posts getting deleated

Speaking from a moderation perspective, I should also point out that the Report Post function is definitely under-utilized by many of you. It really helps sometimes to know what the community is thinking on these matters. If you all think something shouldn't be here, it makes the job slightly easie...

Re: TD 388 - Mystery Theme! - Theme and final results revealed

Wow, Sensei! I was nowhere near to getting this theme. Because of Baltimore and the NY Yankees, I figured Triple Crown, even with no hint of Churchill Downs in the puzzle. (Heck, they could've put horsemeat in SPAM at some point, for all I know. Seems more logical an ingredient than macadamia nuts!)...

Re: Thursday, July 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ryan'll get flak for his holster gesture, but I say, after a comeback like that, let the kid have his end zone dance. It was a breathtaking run (and lucky, thanks to the rebound swings). But I bet I wasn't the only viewer expecting karmic retribution for the Annie Oakley routine, in the form of a t...
