Re: Thursday, January 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was worried about Marilyn when she missed with "steal" on the 8-letter crossword clue, but she proved to be a contender with $5000 at the end of the Jeopardy! round to Lee's $5200 Ryan surprised me with the repeat response of "Who is Jane Adams?" Some tricksy categories ask for the same informatio...

Now that we've got the Carnegie thing settled, is it an en-dive or an on-deeve?
en-dive, unless you're pretentious. And I was a French major in college! ;)

Re: TD 364 - 2017 in Review - FINAL STANDINGS

Man, I started out so strong... I did really like how you jazzed up the standings and the race to the top with a narrative. Thanks - morbeedo from TD 363 gets the credit for the jazzed up standings - I saw how he did the last one and modified my little program to output something similar. Nooo, ver...

Re: Wednesday, January 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Isosceles was a good get by Gilbert. All I could come up with was isometric Said Tuna Casserole, dropping the “N”oodle and losing the points Why not call FJ category HOLIDAYS AND OBSERVANCES? SPECIAL DAYS is completely ridiculous Even in a runaway, I’m sad when the 3rd place player misses Final and ...

Oh, come on. That's the whole reason for having this discussion board. The "what if?" scenarios are interesting. I don't think it's unreasonable to take the position that this judgment was in error and this error potentially affected the outcome. I certainly don't mean to cast aspersions by saying ...

For the Sweeney Todd bonus, are you only going for professions that are *sung*, or are you including the ones mentioned in the spoken parts?
All of them. Anything sung or said between “It’s priest” and “we’ll serve anyone and to anyone at all”

Surprised to hear some of you have never heard of Manchester by the Sea , as it was just nominated last year Wonder why they didn't call the FJ category THE OSCARS? Didn't know this one.

Re: Tuesday, January 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Poor game for me overall. I really, really hope that "Shoes" is not a category on the shoe if I ever get on. I'm totally (see what I did there? And in the previous sentence?) in favor of learning things I don't know and focusing on my weak categories, but I don't think I'll ever bring myself to stu...

Re: TD 363 - FINAL STANDINGS

Just read an interesting tidbit about reshoots for All the Money in the World

Michelle Williams, repped by William Morris, accepted scale for the reshoots, or $80 per diem

Mark Wahlberg, also repped by William Morris, negotiated a cool $1.5 million

How curious indeed!
