Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I am first in the Maso rankings (TMP) and second in the Sandra rankings (DE) in my league... and currently sit in 6th, although 2 points out of third.

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

We tried the first four or five episodes of Schitt's Creek, couldn't stand it, and gave up on it. I don't get it either. I have not watched it myself, but I have heard from more than one person that it's one of those shows (like Parks & Recreation or the American Office ) where the show doesn't rea...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

Did I notice that no network show won in any category? Is this the first year that's happened? This was the first year that no network show won an award on the main telecast, but only because fewer awards were given out there this year. SNL won the "best variety sketch series" award that usually is...

In addition to the series winning all seven awards possible last night, Dan Levy became the first person to win in four separate disciplines (producing, directing, writing, and acting) in the same year.

There are only three possible sets of Buckner scores: 7(3)-6(5), 5(2)-4(4), and 3(1)-2(3).

I briefly considered Picasso, but thought it might be nebulous on his being a 20th-century artist, as he was born in 1881. Was more comfortable with Rivera.

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

A minor point that I think is neat but probably doesn't rise to the level of the other thread: Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor won an Emmy this year for their score for HBO's Watchmen . This puts both of them at 3/4 of an EGOT, each being a Tony award away from completing the four-award set. Dare we h...

I completely missed the clue that the man's name was Coon. I thought that somehow the furry lobsters that John Hodgman has joked about were somehow real.

Third of four games (and four of seven) where I've lost 9(6)-7(5).

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I am kind of mad at myself. My first instinct on the NBA question was, "oh, I've heard this before, this is Malone", but then I decided that wasn't right because I couldn't think of the other one besides Karl. Can't believe I forgot Mr. "Fo-Fo-Fo", Moses Malone. Ended up going with Johnson, hoping t...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

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. I said "showrunner". "Applied by an executive to a c...

Hey all: I just indicated I would like to play in this as an individual, but in anyone would like to join me on a team, let me know!
I just registered as an individual as well - would be glad to be part of an all-boardie team.

11/8/5/8. Several bad coin flips cost me - I have trouble remembering which of the two Johns (Wesley and Knox) is Presbyterianism and which is Methodism; Windsor v Cambridge; Nyasa v Tanganyika.

Re: Season 37 date?

Is it possible they might follow the lead of the major sports leagues and tape new episodes without a studio audience?
