Re: TD 364 - 2017 in Review - FINAL STANDINGS

I will never, ever figure this game out. I've had a keen knack for picking sheep lately, even when taking time to think over my answers, and yet here I have my best wire-to-wire perfomance in ages, and it was in a TD I forgot about and had to rush to submit my answers literally 30 seconds before th...

I am a huge baseball fan and I don't think I ever knew that the world series trophy had a name.
ditto...as I found out after submitting my bonus answers. Probably the reason no one picked the Astros.

Re: TD 364 - 2017 in Review - Q1 revealed

For crying out loud...crazy jacket, looked a lot like Sager...answered too quickly. My first thought was to go with Enberg but since he died so recently I figured it would sheep. By now I should know better than to think.

Re: TD 363 - Q7 RESULTS POSTED

There's got to be a mistake on Q7, as I only got 2 points! That can't be right....

On Q6, I was trying to decide between caldera, ghetto, and coup. As usual, I pick the one worth 9 points while the others were 2 and 3. This TD is testing my sanity.

Re: TD 363

off to an amazing start with two wrong answers... But you're having fun, right? :) Still time - anything can happen - and probably will! Of course! I knew this one would be a struggle, I didn't really have answers to 3 or 4 questions. Should've known Johns would be a big sheep. Figured Betty Boop a...

Re: TD 362 - Mixed Bag - Scores through Q8

Baaaa....for nearly every question and the ones I haven't sheeped I've been second sheep. Harry Kane gets 7, John Candy 1? Max Planck gets 8, Hawking 0? LMFAO gets 9, REM 0? Sheesh...never change TD, never change.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Ended the season with a 4(2)-4(3) tie in which my opponent, 4-18 previously in math, got focus which I did not get, even though my math % is fairly high and I've taken a lot of math. Hadn't thought about parabolas in a while. For the Olympic question, I figured the WW2 question World HIstory and the...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

A couple of years ago I'd have had no chance on Shawn Mendes (or the earlier Taylor Swift question this season) but having 2 daughters in the tween age group who only want to listen to Hits1 on sirius who posts artist name/song titles....well that makes questions like that a lot easier. I read yeste...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I was a bit upset with myself not remembering Turkey wasn't a country until after WWI, but was glad to get credit. I knew from a recent read of a Lawrence of Arabia bio that he was fighting Turks and also connected Gallipoli/Turkey/WWI. Was pretty sure Bulgaria was correct based on books about Russi...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I got Rochester as I've been to Buffalo several times, and realize that Lake Ontario approaches I90 just to the east of Buffalo and Rochester is the biggest city in that area. Was so mad at myself when I submitted and saw that my initial thoughts of grog and proton were both right. I couldn't think ...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I've lived in New England almost all my life and the three clues really meant nothing to me initially. I did instantly think Boston Cream Pie, then thought for a while what the heck beans and romaine or some other lettuce had to do with "cream" or "pie" since I was sure the first pic was Boston Mark...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I was two letters away from my first beer of the season, WAGging "Eurodex" instead of "Euronext". :cry: Exact same scenario for me! Well, except that I was feeling semi-confident I had heard of something called 'Eurodex' before. Coming up with Moll Flanders based solely on this criteria had me pump...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Dropped to 0-4 yesterday in my initial D rundle season which is pretty frustrating considering I've answered 3 or more questions correct on 3 out of 4 days, my defense is leading the rundle (.875, only given up 2 ufpa) and I'm above the middle of the pack in TCA. However, I'm also leading in CAA whi...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I'm not playing any of the MLs, but check each day to see the questions. For the Mideast ML, how the heck did anyone get the World Cup anthem singer as being from Lebanon? I figured (wrongly, obviously) that the anthems would be related to a country that actually qualified in the World Cup. The get ...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I also won yesterday, 4(2)-3(3), because of defense from my opponent that has me scratching my head. Why on earth would they gave me a 0 for Qwirkle when they didn't know that one!? As someone who didn't know this but gave my opponent 1 for it: I thought maybe it was easy and I was just missing it....
