That was a contrast in approaches at the NBA All Star Game with Barenaked Ladies singing "O Canada" and Fergie singing "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Also octave ranges. O Canada doesn't have notes only dogs can hear.

Swear I posted this, but after seeing MarkBarrett's anthem commentary and some searching, apparently neither I, nor anyone else, tackled it. https://globalnews.ca/news/4011970/o-canada-lyrics-gender-neutral/ The new, gender-neutral lyrics to "O Canada" are official. ...

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

The bottom box clue in the synonym category is why you don't start there first. I was stunned to see a Physics question and might have clammed because I think the clue referred to particle physics, and spin is not used interchangeably with angular momentum in the quantum realm. And it is just one c...

I wonder how many people my Current Events post on Tonga misled. When the Phantom clue was revealed, my first thought was: "Who originated the Christine role? MIchael Crawford was the Phantom and they're not going to ask about anyone else..." It did not come to me in time. So of course the first com...

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

In the category Jay Leno's Garage, Charles de Gaulle seemed hard for the top clue, and World's Fair seemed easy for the $800 clue. Maybe they should have been swapped? I had the opposite reaction. The de Gaulle clue gave us "1962," "french president," "assassins," and a picture of the man in servic...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

Playing along with the Barbershop 1DS, I'm a little surprised at how hard Q10 played (I knew it without the audio, having never played the game, but I think another recent-ish clue made me notice how few LLamas seem to be aware of blockbuster video games), and I'm shocked at the get rate on Q11.
