Re: Monday, February 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Superb work once again Rob!! I love how you aren't afraid to make big wagers when the time arises; paid off today, and maybe in the long run as you're in good position on the ToC tracker now. I'm hoping to see a nice highlight package on the show's site this time tomorrow! Near-instaget Final here. ...

Re: TD 368 - PRESIDENTS' DAY - Q1 REVEALED

I had a gut feeling that James Madison Pettis was going to be a singleton when I typed it in simply due to the fact that I'm younger than everyone else. I remember when Cory in the House was a new show and I liked it a lot, but sadly it only got two seasons. I also vividly remember getting up at 5:3...

Re: Thursday, February 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Congrats on win #2 Rob! I thought for sure you were going to coast after nailing that TDD in round one, but credit to Shawn for making a good game out of it.

Another response of "shogun" here, but samurai makes sense in hindsight.

Re: FJs for the 2/5/18 week

:mrgreen: :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :( :( Symposium on Tuesday. White man's burden on Friday just to have something down. Started with Johns Hopkins Thursday before remembering CDC is in Atlanta - Emory seemed the logical choice from there. I'm at 54% on 100 regular play finals so far this season.

Re: HQ Trivia

My apologies for getting snarky with you. I just think there's more than "material worth knowing" to good trivia questions, and I happened to think (by virtue of being successful in logically attacking them) that the pseudocereal and fatty candy bar questions, like good FJ clues, rewarded more than...

Re: Tuesday, February 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Symposium here, likely only because one of my roommates read that last semester. Sad part to all of this is I have Great Dialogues of Plato on my desk, with Apology literally on the cover of the book. Just haven't read it yet. Grr. I only got SeaTac because of Ryan. I agree with others that Despacit...

Instaget final. Lach Trash: Tim McGraw I thought about you when that clue came up, being the country music nut you are. I missed it, myself... embarrassingly, as I was looking through his discography page maybe a month ago. The album was out just maybe a year or two before I started listening to cou...

I do know that Daedalus is a popular J! topic though, so it made sense and I kept it. Embarrassing miss on Wednesday - pretty sure I had Albertson's. For the record, I love tate...

Re: Friday, February 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Fascinating end game to this contest! I enjoyed this game all the way around. Caitlin made a good bet, too bad it didn't pan out. For me, Rodgers jumped out and I had Oklahoma as well as Maryland for some reason, but in the end made the right decision in which one to cross out. Ryan's negs were inde...

Re: Football Category Poll (2/1/18 SPOILERS)

Since were geeking out, is the option play still more common in college games than pro? My thought is that pro quarterbacks are far too expensive these days to put them at risk on simple running plays. So those are college (and high school) plays for the most part. For the same reason, you don't se...

Re: Tuesday, January 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The arctic tern made me think of Colin Mochrie. :lol: Daedalus got to my page first - good thing, as I worried that it may have been Icarus for a good ten seconds. I'm liking Ryan a lot- he was really fantastic in DJ!. Some odd misses to this point, but he's got a strong academic knowledge base. Hop...

Re: Tuesday, January 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Going out on a limb to say that the writers probably got the characters' name category from Ken's Brainiac... three of those clues were mentioned at some point in the book (Barbie, Wizard of Oz and Cap'n Crunch).

Re: TD 365 - clt013 (Final Results)

Pleased to finish in the top 10. As I've started to piece together my own TD for possible use someday, I greatly appreciate those who can crank out good material for us to enjoy, so I will add to the thanks and congratulations for all of your great work with these clt!
