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

I haven’t even seen the episode to know what the joke was (if this was from Friday, ABC Chicago moved the episode to 3 a.m. due to Aurora and I didn’t change my DVR). I’m simply a little tired of the trope involving nearly tens, if not hundreds, of times the world population.

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

Any reason I should know any of those movie quotes? Especially since none of them were actually funny? As I pointed out, Alex at least thought the Mean Girls ESPN quote was funny. So did I. I swear I've heard at least 400 billion other people make that exact same malapropism before Mean Girls even ...

Re: TD 411 - Millennial Medley Revenge (Q8 Standings)

And bro country gets me another singleton. One of the only things more processed than Spam is Chris Lane’s voice. I may have overexaggerated my feelings on Thomas. At least on his last album, he was just sort of “there” ... not bad, not great. Why they didn’t release “Leave Right Now” to pop radio, ...

Re: TD 411 - Millennial Medley Revenge (Q6 Standings)

I mainly got McMurray because, to my recollection, he was the biggest-name driver to get forced out retire after last year, only racing the 500 this year. (I seemed to recall Kahne was stepping away entirely from NASCAR and not going into TV, and didn't remember him winning the 500.) I should probab...

Re: Wednesday, January 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Both my wife and I swore we heard Sean say "Fritos" instead of "Cheetos", though chalked it up to his overall manner of speaking. I would assume that the Spellements category would have kept up the C theme. Our guesses were Co (to try to get someone to stumble on copper), and probably Cn in the bott...

Re: TD 411 - Millennial Medley Revenge (Q2 Standings)

At least my alternative would've sheeped even worse on Q2...I'm a little embarrassed to say I had a huge country phase and Chattahoochee was one of my favorite songs at some point. Never be embarrassed to be a fan of 90s country. Never. 8-) At the very least, don’t be embarrassed by the Class of ‘8...

Did you mean 1997 for the Aaliyah song? That's what the Wikipedia article would indicate at least. Especially since she died in 2001 ...

I mean, I didn't know it when I was filling out my answer sheet, so it's not like it affected me. :-)

Re: Thursday, January 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I’m counting my response of “Diddy Kong” correct for the Nintendo ape. Looked it up online and he was added to the game in September. (Never heard of the game, but every Nintendo sports/party game has the same general list of participants.) Bugged by Jessica’s wager — $0 seems like the only logical ...

It figures that I would forget that last year was the one year since I've been alive* that Alabama and Clemson did not meet in the CFP final.

Re: Wednesday, December 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The clues for handy reference in DO THE MATH since it's bound to be a topic of board interest: $200: It's the decimal equivalent of 1/8 $400: 9 divided by 3/4 = this $600: If  x² + 2 = 18, x = this $800: It's 5% of 400 $1000: (x + 1)² expands to this One way of doing the math in the category: $200:...

I’m most amazed that I apparently correctly WAG’d eight of the pictures and yet one of my two misses was my actual answer.

Re: TD 404 - Not Found (Q1-Q2 Revealed)

Well #2 was embarrassing. I chose Poor, Poor Pitiful Me because I (obviously mistakenly) assumed that country music was a point of weakness with the board, and that maybe the singer would be unknown to some participants, but then I didn't actually include Terri! I must have gone from reading the dir...

Nothing for Paul?
It would be odd for the first apostle to be trying to kill the subsequent apostles.

Got Andrew mainly because he’s the patron saint of my church.

Re: The crisis in TDs

Recently I’ve been trying to play every week, partially since the counts have been down. I must say that the amount of multiple choice has made it more difficult for me to be able to answer a TD as a (relatively) quick aside, for example while I’m pulling a series of reports at work. While the autho...
