Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Right-handed pitcher Joe Musgrove threw a no-hitter on April 9 against the Texas Rangers. It is the first no-hitter ever by a Padres pitcher. I'm not absolutely certain about this, but I believe the San Diego Padres were the last remaining MLB team never to record a no-hitter in franchise history. ...

It's too bad they discontinued 151. It was the strongest alcohol you could buy in California and I've gotten to make some special drinks with it. Too many people getting alcohol poisoning and suing the company I suppose. Allegedly, it was because 151's easily flammable, but there's never been an of...

I got the Tyler Durden clue. I'm not sure if Volante made a Fight Club reference in yesterday's thread or if he was only making a grammar comment. Maybe both.

It was a dig in the sense that it, in the football world, might be an indication that LaFleur doesn't have full confidence in his abilities. That simply isn't possible. It was 100% LaFleur making the wrong call. Rodgers completed 70.7% of his passes for nearly 4300 yards, with 48 TD and 5 -- yeah, ...

Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was reading an article about a guy who tried to ship himself in a crate from Australia to London back in 1965. It had this sentence, "the stowaway was sent home to London on a plane - this time in the cabin." Imagine if that had said "a cabin". It would sound completely off, right? Bad English. I...

What was with the British Labor party clue? Brandon answered 'Labor', and hearing crickets, specified "The Labor Party".

I was pleasantly surprised at Aaron Rodgers’s ability as a host, though that hairdo put me in mind of Michael Beschloss at times. FJ had my wife thinking of Alex Trebek until I pointed out the category. I got to Fred Rogers quickly and couldn’t think of any response I liked better. My wife and I al...

This is what I had on the catcher clue:

I'm watching on YouTube TV on KABC in Los Angeles.
Came in fine for me, catcher and next clue call. Also KABC. I do watch OTA, though, maybe it was a cable/satellite hiccup?

You know, I was in such a hurry to post my hilarious May/Mayim joke that I never even made that connection. Good looking out.

Re: Friday, April 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought of Pikes Peak, in part because for two years I attended a small liberal arts school nestled at the foot of it. Also, at 14,115 feet, it's an eponymous landmark visible from probably a hundred miles to the east, aka Kansas. No. It's nearly 200 miles from Pikes Peak to the Kansas state line...
