Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 11/5/2019 - Tuesday TOC (SPOILERS)

Just $2000. Would have nailed the Deseret clue if I'd remembered the category, but I kneejerked "Brigham Young". That prevented a category sweep. :( I *knew* I had heard that term "Kintyre", but couldn't pair it up with anything. I know what a slip is, but have only heard the term said by itself, no...

No the. Just Carpenters.
Originally, I was going to refute your claim, but... I stand corrected...
It's true. My entry was simply 'Carpenters' as well.
In concert with Eagles and Daryl Hall & John Oates!
Don't forget Beatles Reunion Tour, featuring The Frank Sinatra!

No the. Just Carpenters. Interesting... I've been a fan since their heyday and *never once* heard of them being referred to as just "Carpenters". However, after looking at every logo and every album cover I could find, you are correct. The word "The" is nowhere. Had all their recordings, and I gues...

I've heard of Pentecostal and the name briefly flashed thru my head... But not knowing what it was, I went off to 7th-Day Adventistville.

I went to a parochial high school which I loved except for the churchy part... So there ya go.

"Blah Blah Blah Cascades" = NOT Washington = OMG MASSIVE MASSIVE NEGBAIT. Mount Shasta is in the Cascades and it's right near the California/Oregon border. Shasta is actually an hour's drive south of the Oregon border... And I believe the clue said "southern end of the Cascades". Lassen is southeas...

I saw the pic, and recognized it so quickly that Alex was maybe into the 2nd word of his read... figured the clue would want something about him rather than just his name.

While I don't keep track, I felt I did about average (for me) on this game... Much of my comeback to respectability after a very slow start was due to the wheelhouse 5/5 in Classical Music. Didn't look that way at first... After seeing the names of the categories, then clamming for the first twelve ...
