Re: Wednesday, October 18, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ouch, I don't mean to rub it in anymore, but Manny's downfall is a very teachable moment of how not to wager. Was he there to witness Austin's $69,000 get, and maybe that drove him to try it too? That episode of Austin's was taped in April. Yeah but wouldn’t this episode been taped just a few days ...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I actually wound up winning my group in the '60s ML, beating boson in the tiebreaker. We both finished 8-1-2. I actually thought that the first tiebreaker was total correct answers, not match play differential, so I had assumed that boson would get the tiebreaker. :oops: Not that it made any differ...

Yes, please! There was some kind of network dispute about it here, and thus it doesn't air on any of my local stations. :x

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Well, I confess that math and statistics are not my forte, so I am kind of carelessly playing with matches here. I supposed that someone would take me to task here, although I figured that it would be boson. This is the way I thought of it, flawed or not. I know (or, in this case, had a high probab...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

That Thief of Bagdad thing is very awkward. I missed it in ME then used it as a guess in Movies. I don't think that's cheating by the letter of the law but I feel a little weird about it. I knew the later film and recognized it in Movies, and since that question also showed an older film, I figured...

Re: Friday, October 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

It's hard to have your head in the second game period, IMO--I was noticeably flakier myself, and I didn't have the utter shock of beating someone who'd won 12 times! It does your head in. First you're shocked you won Am curious, why would a contestant be shocked they won? Isn't that the goal, isn't...

Re: What do you guys think of Austin Rogers so far? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

Hi all. I've been reading the board for years. First time posting. By pure serendipity, I just happened to come across this appearance by Austin on Cash Cab in 2010. At one point, the host/driver looks at the camera and says, "This guy knows EVERYTHING!" Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yI5WT...

Re: What do you guys think of Austin Rogers so far? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

Just this week on "Survivor," a contestant said she'd never met an honest redhead. No clue where the sentiment comes from, some people just need to find a type of discrimination that's still PC I guess. I've definitely heard the "soulless ginger" thing, but usually as a joke. I thought serious beli...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Well now the plot REALLY thickens. In my '60s league rundle, Steve Bahnaman surprisingly forfeited again while I suffered my first loss of the season. That means that I am now tied with Boson for first place, three points ahead of anyone else. We play today. 8-) If Learned League had a cable channe...

Re: What do you guys think of Austin Rogers so far? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

I'm just looking forward to what he'll do as a tribute to Cindy Stowell during the ToC. If he had to go, at least he lost to a redhead. Given how many people on twitter seem to believe that redheads don't belong on television, I'm glad whenever any of us do well. People think redheads don't belong ...

Wow, nice job, Scarlett, and of course a very impressive run for Austin.

My mom is always daydreaming about a category on Dolly. I'll have to tell her about this, if she hasn't seen it already!

If he wins with $17,100, he passes Julia Collins for 3...

I recognized Shakira's voice but had forgotten her heritage. I knew it once, I swear! :lol: Hips don't lie, but sometimes my memory does.

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

The plot thickens. I won on defense yesterday 6(3)-3(3) to remain the only unbeaten (but not untied) player in my rundle, in first place, at 6-0-1. I am two points ahead of Boson and Steve Bahnaman with four days left. However, I play Boson on Thursday and Steve on Friday. That will obviously be to...

Re: What do you guys think of Austin Rogers so far? [POSSIBLE SPOILERS]

I think all people are saying is questioning whether the show should be the new Major Bowes Amateur Hour. Smile, have fun and be yourself - of course - but when it gets into mime sketches, for example, it's likely to rub some the wrong way. You're being contradictory here. For Austin, being himself...

Re: Tuesday, October 10, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I call foul on accepting "What is 'snipe'?" on that last clue, as the clue went out of its way to lead to the past-tense form of the verb ("What is 'sniped'?"). Upon further review of the scores, Austin would have had a lock either way (though counting against, it would have been much closer), but ...
