Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer started as....OK then.
My love of sports does not extend to college football, and while I can name teams and whatnot, fight song lyrics ain't happening.

Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

'Retired Sports Team Numbers' was a category I could sink my teeth into. Naturally, the players avoided it until almost no other clues were left. Easy run of the category. I ran that category, and sports generally is a nightmare category for me. Those were either easy clues or I'm improving a lot. ...

Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That DD was yet another football clue where I would've passed out from shock had the contestant gotten it right. "It's Not Rocket Science" was the crappiest, laziest category in a while. Please don't do anything like that again, J! writers. Barbarians + movie stars? Gotta be Monaco. ........... .......

Did Alex forget to specify that each correct response would start with OP? That 'light opera' reversal caught me off guard. Instaget FJ.

Re: Reretaken Down

Gotta be the end of Garrett's season. Haynesworth got 5 games a decade or so ago for ripping a guy's helmet off and stomping him, and someone got three games for merely swinging someone's helm at their head; actually hitting someone in the head should be at least 10 games imho, but my gut says they'...

Re: Thursday, November 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Identify Colorado on a map, for $1,600, in a TOC? That may be too easy. Not to mention that Snake River DD, or Moosejaw for 2k when spotted 'deer facial bone' (and the fact that half of us probably precalled Moosejaw anyway). Wasn't doing any backflips over 'res ipsa loquitur' for 2K either. Well, ...

OUCH. Oh Rob. I had you figured for a deep run, especially when you got a favorable draw. So sorry, man. My only "criticism" is that with 3 TSes before the DD, it didn't seem like you were comfortable enough with that Fictional Characters category to go TDD, but it was an $800 clue, after all. Glad ...

Only person I was even kinda sure won the award was Bill Cosby, but I was also sure he'd been stripped, and I wasn't willing to take a WAG. Too bad for me, lots of 'obvious' names on that list.
