I've never felt as confident about a likely sheep as I did about Jack Johnson.
I'm sure I speak for several here.... "Who?"

So, just so I'm clear, Michelangelo went unused, but 4 people went with AJ Pollock!? I don't know why this game still surprises me, my head is still swimming from that nonsensical Merlin Olsen sheep. the 4 who went with aj pollock probably didn't think jeopardy people knew who he was Baseball and t...

Yes, Maria Ouspenskaya was a Russian-born dance and acting teacher, and also a character actress, often playing an older "Madame" somebody in classic films, but she is arguably best remembered as the old gypsy woman Maleva in The Wolf Man and in the sequel Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man . http://pe...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I thought I had a pretty good shot at a rare (for me) six pack, but I stupidly wrote cigna instead of cignus and changed my mind for no good reason from Warhol, who I thought of immediately and confidently, to John Cage, and my six pack became a 4 (4) 5 (3) loss. There's a lesson there, third or fo...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I went with Mercator because, who else could it be? But then I started thinking about the fact that there are a ton of other map styles, but stuck with it anyway. XKCD has two great comics on the Mercator projection, the second of which got me wavering on Mercator. Here they are: ( https://xkcd.com...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Yesterday was one of those days where my mind went from Starz to the Sci-Fi or History Channel and then landed on Starz. Those little mistakes add up! 7(4)-7(5) tie might have helped if you thought about Starz being a pay-channel instead of regular cable. Also, from what little I know of what's on ...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

It took me a while to realize the answer for the geography question didn't necessarily need to be a country on the Arabian Peninsula. Once I got past that mental block, Somalia seemed obvious (and it just came up in Jeopardy! the day before). There are two geography-related facts that I often have ...

Jean de Florette
That's more of a nickname. His name is Jean Cadoret.
Thx for the correction. I suspected as such, but a cursory look didn't turn up anything.

I knew that someone like you would have the answer!

French: Madame Bovary (are titles ok?) I thought of this one but discarded it, since her full name is Emma Bovary ;) As the head arbiter, I would rule against titles, honorifics, etc. being part of the name. Seems to be one step farther away from the original intent of First+Last = Title. (Here's a...
