Re: Besides Ken, Brad, and James, what other contestants could be considered GOAT?

The bottom line to me is that they have invited back 3 white male millionaires-from-trivia to win more millions. They are undoubtedly the three strongest/luckiest (with varying combinations of luck and strength) to have played. It will be amazing trivia, but I like seeing new people on the show sur...

Re: Reretaken Down

So here's a different topic... Next year I'm planning a trip to Toronto and currently I'm looking at flights with a domestic layover, e.g. SNA -> SFO -> YYZ What should I plan on having happen outside of the ordinary, if anything, during the outbound layover? You can assume carry-on luggage only. I...

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

After Larissa Kelly, Alex Jacob and Matt Jackson all looked amazing at the all-star tournament, I'm disappointed that we have Brad and Ken again. Brad and Ken are great, but I think any of the uninvited three could win a tournament of them + Brad, Ken and James.

Said Lamentations since it kindasortmaybe fit the other part of the clue.
That was my WAG, too.
It was a lamentable guess.
My bad guess too....

Though I just learned now that the book is "The Lamentations of Jeremiah"... Closer even than I thought.

Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

28.8k Coryat for me. 5 negs in SJ - ugh, but turned it around in DJ. Missed Final: said "Lamentations" , which was at least in the ballpark as a definition. "The old testament" is a nightmare category for me. In a two-day affair like this, I might bet zero if that category came up. James is so fast ...

It would have been a better question if the missing city had been Richmond or Cleveland. The locations letter/number made me think of coins and bills and ...

$5600 in LT, but missed the diamond DD and 4 negs worth $2800 in there. Casting no stones here, as the King James Bible might say.

Dhruv kept going to the math category, but it wasn't kind to him.

Re: Monday, November 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Oof, tough game. My Coryat tells me I won't be doing great on the 4th podium poll.

Emma is fast and accurate - deadly. Kyle was great fun to watch. Poor Dhruv needed to keep clam, but needed to catch up and was in trouble from the start.

The person who has won A Magnolia several times, and beat me like a rented mule for years, isn't playing this sesson. The weird thing is that our head-to-head record has been wiped from the record. To be honest, I'm happy about that. Same for the person who posted six 9(6)’s to close out LL81 and b...

Glad he enjoys Mark Stone, my team basically gave him to Vegas at the trade deadline last year and I’m still not over it. Your team wasn't going to re-sign Stone, so I think the Senators made out pretty well for trading a "rental player". That said, didn't Stone sign an extension with Vegas about 1...

$10,200.

Should have had cape colony as well, but couldn't pull it in time. Awkward question.
