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

"Only" a million bucks for the top prize? Seems chintzy. Seriously though, 2 million would have bumped Ken or James to the top of the money list, or cemented Brad as the All Time. C'mon Consumer Cellular, pony up. I agree... this is the only thing I would have done differently if I planned this tou...

Re: TD 434 - Another Short Quiz - Scores Through Q4

With a drop used, it's nice to know where I'll be sitting (most likely) for this quiz. Should've known better with the Trolley Song and I switched Andersonville to Gulag before submitting. Grrrrrrrr....

Looking forward to the rest of the reveal!

Re: Wednesday, November 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ocean of air -> air pressure -> barometer -> Torricelli. *thumbs up*. :mrgreen: Lindsey was in my gold tier pre-tourney and today's performance proved why. She played a stellar game, just some tough luck with DD3 and FJ not bouncing her way. Big ups to Gilbert for a great performance too. It's aweso...

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

#TeamEmma. Fantastic game. Mom blurted out the right FJ response about 7 seconds in so I have no clue if I get there on my own. I'll count it *shrug*. WTG Dhruv for the shoutout. I owe Kyle an apology as I (and likely others) severely doubted his chances. Major props for great play in both games, an...

Re: Friday, November 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

ToC minisite seems to show an image of one of our SF matchups. With Emma (W3), Dhruv (W4) and Kyle (WC2) in that image that would likely leave: James (W2) / Steven (WC1) / Rachel (WC4) Francois (W1) / Lindsey (WC3) / Gilbert (W5) Of course, nothing has been confirmed yet, but these seem like fairly...

Re: Friday, November 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Francois was capable of being a second week player after he won his Teacher Tourney, but he still blew me away today. I am hoping beyond hope that Francois, Emma and James are split up next week...those three were on a different level this week and that would be an awesome finals to watch....

Re: Tuesday, November 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I for one thought the U. of Utah clue was wicked negbait for BYU. I had to catch myself to not say BYU, but it’s not in the PAC-12. Utah was a layup after that. I think BYU is still in the Mountain West? BYU left the MWC in 2010. Independent in football since 2011, members of the West Coast Confere...

Hahah same here, and I guess that's why we should not be prognosticators! :lol: Congrats to Gilbert, and props to Kyle for fighting back in the late stages to put himself in good shape f...

I did, but knew that was probably incorrect and no other names came to mind.

Also, RIP Filene's Basement (the brick and mortar version, at least).

Re: Monday, October 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm surprised to learn this is (apparently) not as well-known as I thought. I saw US Cities -> 10,000 feet, what's higher than Denver? -> Leadville and check with mining -> done. *shrug*

Congrats to Ryan on his win. Alex seemed to really like Mononita.

Re: Thursday, October 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Dust Bowl came to mind first on FJ, but circled through panhandle, midwest and Bible Belt to check my work. Counting Kate's overturned Northwest Territories ruling, count me among the winner from the 4th podium crowd (albeit barely). One can easily question why, since he didn’t have a firm grip on t...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (College), October 1, 2019

Thanks a ton for the quick work with the answers, OQ. Judging off the Reddit thread, this one seemed harder than usual. I count 42/50 taking the test for real. Couple bad misses and fortunate gets, so I guess it balances out a bit.. at least I know what I need to review. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Philly audition ci...

Congrats Jason! Had to figure at some point FJ would be his undoing, but he played well right up until the end. The higher activity in the thread before 7pm likely spoiled the result for me, but I was still surprised to see Jason lose from a crush position. Congrats to Gabe as well; way to make the ...

Congrats once again to Jason! Can't wait to see if he's fully rested come Monday. My last US History course (partly concerning the Jackson era, BTW :lol:) was just a few months ago, so I had no problems with this FJ. LanceJ: Good game!

Misreading the clue and leaving out the "al" on heptagonal cost me ten points and the win, it appears. That's going to hurt. :oops:

Feel fortunate to have gotten this FJ right. Never seen the film in question, it took me a few seconds to connect on atomic bomb, and needed the coin flip to fall the right way.

I thought Jason was in solid position to extend his win streak coming out of the summer break, but wow has he blown me away so far this week. Hope he can keep it going!
