Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I once again came so tantalizingly close to my first 9(6). I got the win, but surprisingly, my opponent knew Cossi Fan Tutte even with Classical Music being their third worst category. I was also surprised that Barney Miller played as hard as it did. Same here. 6(5)-6(5) tie because I put Barney FR...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Talked myself out of Singapore (too far north) in favor of East Timor and lost my game 6(4)-7(5). Surprised my opponent got Jasper Johns, while he gladly scooped up 3 points for it I might have come up with South Park on a different day. Just never really watched the show so went with Mr. Bill (SNL)...

Re: Tuesday, September 12, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

When Adele won album of the year the second time for 25 everyone thought it should have been Beyoncé for Lemonade. Even in her acceptance speech, Adele asked "What the f--k does she have to do to win album of the year? That's how I feel.” That helped me resolve the Adele / Beyoncé toss-up I went wit...

Re: Jeopardy! Season 34

Just watched the first episode of the new season. Interesting to see the contestants come out from behind the podiums for the end of game chat with Alex, as usual. I'm curious to see if/when this changes, because I'm sure this didn't happen for any of the 3 games I watched last week. And none of the...
