Re: 2019 TOC Updates

This is disappointing, hasn't the ToC always been a pure meritocracy? I don't remember Nancy Zerg appearing. I am reminded of Michelle Wie continually getting sponsor's exemptions into PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour events as a teenager. Taking a spot from a much more deserving player who actually co...

Brownsville was not coming Thursday. Amarillo = yellow was a big distraction for me, but the city is too far from the border to make sense.

33,000 coryat. This category is squarely in my wheelhouse and was an instaget by "theologian." Calvin and Hobbes is a fine strip but far from my favorite. ;) Disappointed that Rick Roles didn't have Rick and Morty in it. I thought the Language category was obscure too. NHO "Indo-European".

33,600 coryat. Instaget final. Surprised "Benedict" didn't get a BMS, though I can see the argument why it wouldn't need it (there's only been one since the Euro has been A Thing) For at least the last few seasons, the ordinal number hasn't been required unless the question specifically asks for it....

Okay, I see what you were going for now. Maybe throw a Walley World, U Thant, or Ken Olin in there next time to break it up a bit?

39,600 coryat. Early to mid-20th century art is my jam, so this final couldn't have been more of an instaget. It's astonishing that a meeting with Dali would disabuse anyone of the notion of the Surrealists as anything but a bunch of “absolute cranks." Bartok, Berlioz, Borodin, Bruckner, Barber I ho...

30,200 coryat. Knew final had to be a president but guessed Eisenhower. When the MAKING THE ZINE category was revealed, I was doubtful they'd include anything I'd recognize as a zine but then Razorcake showed up in the bottom box. "Angry" is a rather inapt descriptor of the genre. "Noisy", "dissonan...

33,800 coryat. Instaget final. Glad Saorise Ronan didn't come to mind or I might've had a bit of a dilemma but I'm fairly certain I would've still gone with Lawrence.

Based on where Carthage was located in relationship to the Italian peninsula, Sicily made the most sense as a field of battle over the more remote Malta and Sardinia.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

In my first season in an A rundle, I was able to pull out an 8th place finish in A Taiga despite a minor drop in my Q% (from .705 down to .698). Ending up with the most favorable CAA (97) in the rundle certainly helped out. If not for the :cry: decision of going with "indefinite article" over "inter...
