Re: LL83: Learned League

Anyone stave off relegation or get promoted? Let us cheer you on! Well, I did stave off relegation, no thanks to you and your $&@%÷</)! wife! I started MD25 tied for third and lost yesterday, but so did everyone else around me in the standings so I stayed in third and will be in C for the first tim...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Today is simple, if I win, I move up to C. Playing #6 in the Rundle, have a tie against this person. They haven't been in the league long enough to have enough stats for easier defense. Usually I seem to finish my seasons against the top players in the rundle, but this time my last 5 games weren't ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Anyway, as I look on the detailed standings board to see how I can be leading when my correct answer and total match point numbers are eighth in the rundle, I noticed two statistical metrics that I didn't understand: Unforced Points Allowed and Correct Answers Allowed. I think I have an idea what t...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Two sports questions in the same day? And a relatively easy history and pop music for a mid-40s hair band fan? More please... Anyone who knows anything about cycling knows EPO, and I happen to love playing Pai Gow at the casino. And I saw Ratt's current incarnation a couple years ago with Dokken, pr...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Pretty much run the gamut the last few days. First off, I get my best ever showing in MSC with 8/12, almost perfect moneying for 393 points, and highest score in D Magnolia. Who hoo! Then the last MD16-18 happen...4/18 (2,0,2). Ouch. Somehow I went 1-1-1 those three days. MD 16 was frustrating as my...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Yesterday was one of my most frustrating days in 10 seasons. So close to a 4(4)-3(3) win but I a. Talked myself our of Oprah because I thought the question summarized all the books the author had written and I figured she's written a lot more; b. I couldn't name a single Kanye album but left off "co...

Re: LL83: Learned League

At some point, the Koin becomes a coin right? Right? Looking back this season I'm now 0-4 on coin flips, yesterday missing on Copenhagen/Oslo. I was pretty sure Bohr was one or the other but picked the wrong one. Proud to get LA Kings knowing very little about bible books but I am able to name all o...

Re: LL83: Learned League

For the corundum question, my thoughts were it's probably ruby or emerald so I'll just go with emerald. Those 3 points cost me a win 3(3) - 5(3). Got Cornwallis as to me Yorktown is the greatest thing of note from VA in the revolution, SVU cause its everywhere and even though I've never seen it WECI...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I am embarrassed by how long it took me to remember Mildred Pierce . For the golf one, I was like, "Medinah? That sounds familiar. No idea, though. submits THAT's why I know Medinah." Didn’t recognize any of the places but thought golf, bc what else? Then maybe tennis? Thought both too obvious and ...

Re: LL83: Learned League

I was a little surprised he didn't ask for both Frost and Nixon...I re-read the question like 15 times to make sure he only wanted one. 4(4) - 0(0) win to get me in the top 3 of D Magnolia D2.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Almost got a W0(0) - 0(0)F yesterday after submitting with the Koin coming up IL over TN but I did stick with my gut on heavy despite heavier being in the question. I knew about heavy water from nuclear reactors cooling water but the heavier definitely threw me. I almost put "distilled" as some othe...

Re: LL83: Learned League

Opened with a self-inflicted 3(3) - 3(3) tie...I recognized the city question as referring to govt money related sites but my mint Koin came up Denver over SF...the real kicker was Q2 where I didn't know it but thought, that's probably the Orwell novel with Big Brother, so I promptly typed in Animal...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

How is the current ML and recent 1Ds going for the rest of you? I'm 0 for 2 on the ML thus far. It wouldn't have gotten me a win yesterday (I find using the Golden Arches theory in a theme of pop culture just because it involves McDonald's to be pushing it, but I digress), and as a big fan of comic...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

edit: I just looked at the csv file that has stats for the entire league and I led the league in both CAA and TPA! Congratulations? I ended a difficult season for me with a 7(5) - 5(4) win getting all except viceroy. I was a little surprised that trade winds was only 48% and leaves, which me and my...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

...and no pesto I've ever had has had pine nuts... Are you sure about that? Admittedly, alternatives can be used, but the nuts get pulverized during the making so the sauce itself has no visible nuts. So, no I guess I'm not. If that's the case, I'm even more surprised that 92% knew it is pine nuts,...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

My Koin is working super overtime this year, this time on Kuala Lampur/Jakarta which cost me a win. I'm mired mid-rundle, and I've personally found this season very challenging and my Qpct is below my average and I will struggle to get up to the same TCA as my worst non-rookie season. I've found a t...
