Re: Reretaken Down

I wouldn't change a thing. It's fine as is. If you want the ball back, stop them from scoring. ^^ And if you're that equally matched after that long...take the tie. I'd much rather see replay changed: everything's reviewable (like Belichick wants) but you only get to review it at game speed twice (...

Using a faux-Earthrise for Apollo 10 (and especially without clue text during the read) was pretty mean... (Yes, yes, there's plenty of bits that rule out 8, but you're playing against Pavlov there.)

The anatomy category is misspelled in double jeopardy, the G should be removed.

I, on the other hand, missed the fact they were asking about two television shows. For some reason, I was thinking one was radio. So did I, until just reading your post! Weird. I also said Ryan Seacrest, but with more time to consider it he's clearly too late to be correct. Considering I was on WWT...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I hate to criticize too much, and I have enjoyed the Rock and Roll ML overall, but does it seem like it's been a little too metal focused to anyone else? Yes. Plus there should never be a question in there that has a 2% get rate. And I, too, am reluctant to criticize since these are hard to do. I d...

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was a WECIB. Did they really think that was a tough curveball? I can't believe a J! contestant would fall for the FDR 'trap' on this one. I guess it goes hand in hand with the all too common poor FJ wagering, which this game made a good case of. Right, because everyone is an expert on 20th centu...

My favorite clue of the game:

PITY THE FOOL WHO DOESN'T KNOW MR. T MET BOY GEORGE IN A 1986 EPISODE OF THIS SHOW

Since we're allowed to omit leading articles, I shouted out "What is Team?"
Are you allowed to omit -two- leading articles at once though?

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't see FJ as a coin flip. The quote very strongly outlines Hoover's policy of non-intervention. It's the policy that lost him the election against FDR. It's the polar opposite of FDR's policy of extensive government help to end the Depression. If that quote had somehow come out of FDR's mouth...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, that episode certainly was ... different. There used to be at least a streak in the 40s every other year or so, but I don't remember any long ones recently. Jackie Bradley got up to 29 or 30 a couple years back for my Red Sox, and I remember Jimmy Rollins' 38 game streak between the end of 20...
