Re: Wednesday, March 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When I hear Ikea, I often think about the Jonathan Coulton song by the same name. Here's one of the many tribute videos that tries to put visuals to his hilarious lyrics.

Matt did better on his previous game show appearance winning $173K with his dad on Beat Shazam and pops maintains bragging rights since he won on J! in 2000.
Matt is a former co-worker, and he had fun live-tweeting tonight’s episode:

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

Seen Johnson and Jeter play. Still bummed, though, that I missed out on seeing Johnson’s perfect game live against the Braves in 2004. I was living in Atlanta at the time and was considering going to the game because Johnson was pitching, but it had rained most of the day before the game, and didn’t...

Beantown is a wicked good nickname. Good Times? When is the last time that was seen in syndication? Even the show it spun off from, Maude, is largely forgotten. No argument from me about Maude while I would think Good Times has always been around somewhere.The most recent place I've come across the...

A lot to write in 30 seconds, but I was happy to get FJ since the Eric Carle Museum is in our coverage area and always on my radar. I’ve been to the Eric Carle Museum (in Amherst, MA, for those wondering) a couple of times with my kids, including once for Caterpillar Day, so that was an instaget fo...

Re: Tuesday, April 4, 2006 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Loved the shout-out to Fountains of Wayne (RIP Adam Schlesinger), although the song it came from, “Hey, Julie”, is a bit of a deeper cut from a band that I begrudgingly have to call a one-hit wonder. (Although the song was on the same album as “Stacy’s Mom”)

Re: Season 37 Preemptions

Boston viewers will no longer need to worry about Alex's last episode on January 8 being preempted by Patriots All Access. Effective this week, WBZ is moving Patriots All Access is being moved to Saturdays, though this does mean the Saturday reruns will be preempted. Yup, thanks for the heads up - ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

States by County for $200 was vastly undervalued. Kern, Imperial, and Lassen don't sound like they belong to any particular state. Lassen should've been an insta-get for California. The state for Lassen Volcanic National Park was a bottom row clue in this game . Triple stumper. In general, I think ...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I went 8-6-4-6 and needed a late scoring change to get me over the cut line, which was really my goal. Had a couple of bad money decisions in hindsight, but it’s always going to be that way.

I live in S.F. and knew about Michigan yesterday since I try to read all the threads: viewtopic.php?p=332277#p332277
It involved politics/current events (never mind reading other threads), so that’s going to be a NHO situation.

I had never heard of the Mandela effect, but it sounds like it's just one step removed from Q-Anon, and should never have been on the show. Enough with those moronic conspiracy theories. It's more like a case of shared cognitive dissonance. I had to figure out why it was called the Mandela Effect (...

What was the TOM for Kennedy Airport in the top box? I didn't see anything pointing to any airport whatsoever.
This won’t help you, but Eero Saarinen’s TWA terminal is arguably the most well-known building at JFK airport. Hbomb has stayed at the hotel and could probably give you a review of it.

I once had a 12-hour layover in Guam as part of a trip to the Philippines, and I spent much of that time driving around the island, so I knew that wasn’t the correct response.

Random thought: What is your primary use of the archive -- to learn about new things, get a refresher or stuff you may have encountered, or to defend your ignorance ("It only showed up X times, so why should I care?")? Feels like you could make better use of your time on the archive, especially if y...

Me, I've NHO that coach in the top box and don't see why anyone would know him. Bill Belichick has been coach of the Patriots for 19 years and won 6 Super Bowls. Maybe you could’ve swapped that clue for Tom Brady in the top box, but he’s definitely worth asking about/knowing on a general trivia lev...

I probably would’ve figured it out, but earlier in the day I saw an Instagram post from a friend at QVC headquarters, visiting Lauren Gambino, who’s a host on the channel and now host of HQ Sports, the spinoff of HQ Trivia.
