Re: What Alex Has Been Asked

Over two years ago, my mom asked what he likes to do for Rest and Relaxation. He seemed to give it some careful consideration, then admitted to retreating to his bedroom to enjoy meals and to binge-watch Turner Classic Movies. Take that, Galapagos Islands! I asked if he had a favorite among the many...

Masterpiece on PBS has adapted Sanditon, the final, unfinished novel by Jane Austen https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/specialfeatures/sanditon-s1-everything-we-know-right-now/ I caught the first installment the other day. To paraphrase Woody Allen, if Jane Austen came back and saw what's going o...

Alex's reference to Arnold Stang during the FJ reveal was hilarious to me. But, what the heck else could he say?

I was pleased with myself for coming up with "Lewis & Clark Clifford Odets" without knowing if Clark Clifford was anyone at all.

Re: 2020 Current Events Study Guide

Sad to report that Jack Sheldon passed away Dec 27, 2019 at the age of 88. (I'm not posting in last year's current events thread since the news didn't break until the new year.) Jazz trumpeter, vocalist, sometime actor. Probably best known to the general public from "The Merv Griffin Show" and "Scho...

Re: It's a Hand! It's Michigan! category poll (1/3/20 spoilers)

I walked in mid-clue from another room to see the hand diagram onscreen. Alex seemed to be describing Interlochen, so I thought there must be some anatomical feature called "the Interlochen" that I had NHO. Wacky! Got all but Jackson. Was sorry for the guy who negged with Green Bay--correct area, wr...

Got all but $200 in Armchair Expert. Any reason I should know JFK used a rocking chair and not any other kind of chair that moves?
L.L. Bean sells a "Kennedy" Presidential Rocker, and I remember reading their catalog blurbs years ago about how a similar model supposedly relieved JFK's back pain.

Re: Tuesday, December 31, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm familiar with the origin story of Swanson's TV Dinners, but I'm also an admirer of "Saddlesore Swanson" (voiced by Chill Wills) from the old America Sings attraction at Disneyland.

Re: Thursday, December 26, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Many have already spoken about the millibar clue, but no one harshly enough. The neg was stupid enough, but the lack of reversal was simply idiotic and absolutely indefensible. And of course, the clue itself was garbage. Do they have a process where you can challenge your answer immediately on the ...

How did I not answer "America" for Q10? Even if it had cost me a point, I should have noticed that and made that my answer.

I assumed it was H. L. Mencken's gravesite that received the empty bottle tributes. Somebody in the Baltimore area needs to start pouring one out for him too!

Re: TD 435 - Narrowing Nine (Final results)

Thanks for hosting, clt013. As the results came in the other day, I started craving a Big Mac with only frozen Quinoa Crunch burgers on hand!
Congrats to the podium, and have a great weekend, everybody!
