Re: Wednesday, June 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Briefly considered the 1812 Overture, but rejected it because a) it's not a symphony, and b) Tchaikovsky was way later than that. I had been under the impression that the Surprise Symphony was called that because it ends abruptly, but it's just a sudden fortissimo chord. Went with it though because...

It's interesting how, but for that errant headline, Dewey would be totally unknown today.

Now that I read the comments, I can see how people might have thought the answer was Truman because he gave up too early. I wouldn't have thought of that.

Cryogenics cost me the six-pack. I thought it was the general study of cold things (like liquid nitrogen), so I thought he was looking for something more specific since he specified near absolute zero. Still managed a tie.

Also, the clue was based on a claim that's on John Hickenlooper's own web site- https://www.colorado.gov/governor/gov-hickenlooper By the way, I've been to the Wynkoop Brewing Company in Denver, which Hickenlooper owned before he was elected governor. Their Railyard Ale was perfect for a warm, sunn...

Crap crap crap crap CRAP! My sad tale ... I finally gave up on monotremes after pondering it all day (and, believe it or not, Roots, which finally struck me), put my points in, and was ready to submit.

Dartmouth, Nick?!? If I'd know Catherine was a fellow alum, I'd have been rooting for her before. Well, until she went up against a Boardie, at least.

Bingo is still illegal in the UAE.
Ah, thanks for checking, I was going to do that and forgot. The first clue of the game became no longer true in 1998.
And I corrected Billy David, Jr. to Billy Davis, Jr.

When I was on the radio, I always wanted to call an album "Of the Same Name" and have a song on it called "The Title Cut" so I could play The Title Cut from the Album of the Same Name.

I flubbed FJ by going with Peter Rabbit. In retrospect it's obviously not set in a forest, but never thought of Pooh for some reason.
Same here. And then the next day I spent my whole bike ride with House at Pooh Corner as an earworm.

If a Penguin doesn't get the clue about birds, it isn't a softball. No, no, I got it. I just like complaining about clues. :D And as Davey pointed out, the book actually does get into ornithology, even if the title doesn't make that clear. Good thing.
