Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I salute those doing well in Visual Art...my Art % is at .321 which is not too far below league avg of .382. However, I decided not to play based on knowing none of the sample questions. I have followed along though, and man I would've been hard pressed to average 1 correct per day. Most of the answ...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

Missed 12 of the first 25, but ended strong but still only finished with 34. Felt much harder to me than the last few tests. Way too much art/poetry/literature for me and no sports/pop culture/film. I got super frustrated not coming up with Austen and Buccaneer but many of my misses were things I've...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

The True Crime ML is significantly more difficult already. My first opponent and I tied with 3(1). I still don't know who that picture is of even after seeing the answer. Its the woman from Theranos, although I could not pull her name. I won 3(2) - 0(1) getting Pappy Van Winkle and Lufthansa. I did...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Anyone else finding the Art ML absurdly easy? Yeah, I'd like to see more difficult questions along the lines of the Weems one (which I absolutely did not get) mixed in with the standard fare like Bosch, Whistler, Manet, etc. This is exactly why me and my 32% art score am not playing this ML. I've b...

Re: Thursday, April 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seeing as how the rest of the post has nothing to do with the game, I'll just add one more thing: Much respect for Anna, handling her unfortunate draw with aplomb as she did. Her reality is my worst nightmare should I ever get on stage. someone else on here remembered arceneaux? would never have gu...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Needed to go 3-0 the last week to get promoted to C, went 2-1 to finish in a 3 way tie for 4th in a close top of rundle in DMagnolia2. First had 35 points, 2/3 tied with 32, 4/5/6 tied with 31. I ended this season doing all I could with my highest TCA with 78 and DE almost 100 points better than my ...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I started MD23 tied for 3rd place in DMag2, although I was in 4th by MPD. However, if I went 3-0 to end the season I would guarantee promotion as I play the person who is in 2nd on the last day. However, all that is out the window as I lost 1(2)-5(4), to drop into 8th. I'm still only 2 points out of...

Re: TD 415 - Anniversary Edition

Bumping before the "madness" kicks into high gear at various venues across the country. I will be in one of those arenas this afternoon - hoping my alma mater can pull off a bracket busting upset. I'm jealous, I've always wanted to go. I didn't realize Hartford was hosting this year or I would've l...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Lost the Koin flip on Teen/Young Adult, which in retrospect was stupid as, the parent of a teen daughter and the husband of a woman who works in high schools and reads a lot of the books her students are reading, I hear talk about YA novels all the time. Cost me 2 pts in a 3(3)-4(3) loss, dropping m...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I went with Cleveland as well, as I could come up with 4 or 5 states with a Cleveland. Thought about Clinton as something that could be a place name, but was not familiar with any places named Clinton. Cleveland is found in 18 different states, and is about 20th most common per wikipedia.

Re: TD 413 - A to Z (Final results)

Thanks for the TD, tried to get a little cute with the stadiums...I knew GA State was playing at Turner Field, but I didn't realize it had been renovated down so much since I believe it held like 55,000 for the Braves. UMass I knew played at least some of their games at Gillette, though I did think ...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I'd like to thank the SHC for my win yesterday as someone used machiatto in a question and the link between that word and spotted italian coffee is seared in my brain. This is my 7th season in LL, and my first "recycled" question gave me an instaget on mail. I pulled Nashville out of somewhere, alth...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

The only reason I got croquet was that I always thought the club was a tennis and bowling club, but not too long ago I saw a similar question and found out it was a tennis and croquet club. I went with the wrong direction on the train clue, going with southern over northern. I misread the math quest...
