How many of you negged Indy 500 $200?
Was that the Al Unser Jr clue? IIRC they gave us the Al and the Jr...unless there's another famous one? I know less about auto racing than your dog.

I didn't understand the clue that Mark and Marcia came from the same 70 sitcom. What was that in reference to? " This name! This name! This name! This '70s sitcom name came from the same source Mark did " I don't think it was saying that the names come from the same sitcom ( The Brady Bunch ), it w...

Re: Friday, May 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wonder if they’d have taken just the hand signal for Hook ‘em Horns. I definitely did it at home, and thought Josh might too. Cya in the TOC, Josh. If FJ had stopped at '2008 comedy', things would've been a bit dicey; I'm pretty good at winners, but remembering all the nominees is hit-or-miss. Bu...

Re: TD 380 - Mother's Day - Q9-Q10 revealed

I was going to brute force the domino question, write them all down and count them up, but once I realized that each number appears 8 times, it was simple multiplication.

Great TD! Congrats to Magna and the podium.

I was so very tempted to say Padme Amidala for Carrie Fisher's picture in-character as Leia...turns out it would've cost me a point. But it's good to know it would've been right, and not a 'clever' neg.

Pretty sure there haven't even been 44 seasons of Survivor, total, let alone 44 women winners, knew the Hundred (and sixteen years) War cold, and MSG not as cold. 44 ingredients in the McRib is slightly disturbing.

At least it didn't matter in the end. Quaker -> Pennsylvania -> Mason Dixon l...

Singleton for the Unisphere is a relief. I had this moment where I wasn't sure what would count as a landmark, so even as a NYer I decided to play it "safe".

For once, instead of flailing away at southern cities, my mind immediately rattled off monarchs: Edward, William, George, Charles....Charleston! I'm glad Louis(ville) didn't come to mind, though I probably would've rejected it as not southern enough. Another day, another 2nd place overwager. Ho-hum.

I've never specifically thought of the famous section as a galop, but it clearly is one, and it's cool that there's the potential for that word to make someone think of horses and the Lone Ranger as a back-door solution method. Yup. By far the dumbest solve I've had in a long time, but they all cou...
