Re: BASEBALL NICKNAMES 2/26/21 category [Spoilers]

Blue Jays fans still show up in force at their annual series in Seattle. At least it seems like Blue Jays fans outnumber Mariners fans, but maybe it's just that the Canadian fans are more boisterous. :) ""My favorite summer thing in Seattle is when 20,000 surprisingly awful Canadians drive down to ...

Swept it, and saw Randy Johnson a couple times as a Mariner (91/92). Man, those Blue Jays series at the Kingdome were rockin back then.

Michael Moorcock should be on every episode. The Eternal Champion Sequence should be taught in schools. Corum 4 Life.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

totally thought those get rates were off too. I had a 9 (6) thanks to a lucky Christmas guess, but the others, except for Ben, were instant fill ins for me. Ben was a great question, took me a while to get there, but that's the kind of LL thing that makes me smile.

Remembering this FJ helped me to get tonight's.
Yeah, I remember that one, too... :oops:

Luckily it helped me get it right tonight.

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

I knew Iliac = Hip (two reasons, Maestro Fresh Wes's line "so many suckers on my sacroiliac;" and my wife complaining about hers since she had kids) - and I thought the Iliad was about Troy, so I put Troy. Should've just kept it simple. Zamboni is offensively easy.

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

The bowling one took me a lot longer than it should've. I worked at *THREE* different bowling alleys as a teenager, but only one had 10 pin; and made it to the Canadian Youth Bowling team National Championships twice. The score for those rolls in 5 pin could've been so many things, since each pin is...

Also, that Whale video is an extremely formative part of my teenage years. I think yesterday's questions were written by a big 1996 MuchMusic fan.

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

Beavis and Butthead is maybe my favourite TV show of all time. I was a 16 year old boy who wore metallica shirts already when it came out. I don't know if there's ever been an easier LL question for me.

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Loved how that Hank Williams clue could work either as pop music, sports or current events (and yet still played low...) And back up to The Show. Wasn't entirely mine to win, but I'll take it! (...for a season probably...is stressful up there with a TCA in the 90s...) Baffled that played so low. I ...

I expected a much higher get rate on Q1 yesterday (anchor). I can see putting "pundit," which was the MCWA at 14%, but that plus anchor at 42% gives 56%. I wonder what the other 44% came up with? This one seemed like a WECIB? type question to me.
Chief Correspondent was my guess.

I am deeply, deeply ashamed to have gotten the HNIC question wrong. It's probably the 'show' I've watched more than any other broadcast.

If it's a literature question I don't know, I almost always give it a 3. Worked yesterday.

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

Mask wearing in Ottawa is fairly prevalent, this is a forward thinking city. My company has been hit VERY hard by this (I work in the aviation industry). So, I'm working from home (will be until Spring 2021 apparently), and have taken a pay cut. Have avoided layoffs so far, but only thanks to a big ...

So, why would I ever have heard of those bridges? Or been able to put them in Vancouver?
It helps a lot if you lived there for a decade and worked as a traffic reporter for a while.

Yeah, I’m getting slaughtered in A, as per usual. Got a win yesterday to move up to 27 from 28 out of 28.
