Re: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm old enough to remember the Ed Sullivan Show... Watched every Sunday, so I saw that Beatles episode. I was almost 9 and remember seeing promotional articles in the newspaper about this new British band on the morning of that show. HATED Topo Gigio! When ol' Ed would introduce that incredibly bori...

Re: Football pre-emptions

Well, great... In addition to the KGO preemptions, my DVR seems to think the new season starts NEXT week. Monday's apparently was shown Tuesday in my market, but the DVR didn't catch it and I was out of town. My listing also don't show any preemption for the Democratic debate... Who knows what or wh...

I don't see my screen name in the answers for Q's 1 and 3. Don't know if I was scored for those or not (tho I have a sneaking suspicion that I was, at least in Q1, where I sheeped.

Re: Football pre-emptions

I’m in KGO’s market, too.

Too bad the station doesn’t seem to realize that Jeopardy! is the one and only reason for their station’s existence.

I’ll have to call them tomorrow and remind them of this undeniable fact.

My whine is the ubiquitous presence of boomer music and culture in every public space. If it was a retro thing that would be fine, but it HAS NEVER GONE AWAY! I think this a macro version of 'the best music is whatever was out when I was 18-24 years old'. America's time to feel all grows'd up, but ...

NBA Finals - Check Your J! Listings

Here in the Bay Area, they're showing J! sometime in the middle of the night. And Channel 7 tends to lie about exactly when, so I'm bracketing the heck out of that with my DVR... I think I'll have 3 or 4 hours to fast-forward thru tomorrow morning. :) Check your local listings... Oh... and GO WARRIO...

So who else joined me on seeing "Blondie was phoning it in" and said "Hanging on the Telephone" instead of "Call Me"? Went with "Call Me" as a total guess. Didn't know whether it was Blondie or not, not if that was the correct title. Never heard of "Hanging On The Telephone". Oh, and never heard of...

Are Han, Hope and Free Solo siblings?
Yeah, they all come from the same Solo cup. :)

Anyway... I WAG'ed "Glory" based on Civil War movie and the time period.

I don't keep track, but it seemed to me that I got quite a few of 'em correct last night. Even nailed the Zeiss Triple Stumper.

...NHO "Born on the Fourth of July". That seemed very obscure for the top box. That movie is anything BUT obscure. Won two Oscars including Best Director, nominated for several more including Best Picture. Did pretty well at the box office, too... I think. It was a very much-talked-about movie duri...

Close vote for me... Sounds on the surface like a decent compromise, but then... What if some contestant felt obligated to spend time doing a shout-out when he should have been re-reading the clue and making sure he hadn't misread it or something?
