Fourth Podium Poll for 1/21/2020

A Fourth Podium Poll for this game is now available: https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5544 This is a day late, thanks to the impeachment. But it's worth doing since a fourth podium win is definitely possible. I'm trying the new method again of directing discussion to the game day thread. If you...

Samantha Slama is a heck of a good name. Sam Slama Jama!
As soon as I saw it, I thought "That's a good Roller Derby name." Turns out she plays lacrosse. Close enough.

Not to sound arrogant, but I immediately started jumping up right after Dennis won his game.
Not sure "arrogant" is the word I'd use...
Baby steps. He's gotten much better. He'll pass freshman comp and get that MTGcollegegrad label some day.

Friggin' impeachment. Fortunately our local affiliate reruns Jeopardy! at 4:30 a.m. Unless the hardware-software cooperative screws up, that'll record and we'll watch it a day late.

Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For me, State was instant and was quickly followed by "not Defense. That's why Alex issued that warning". I don't recall if I thought of Treasury. If I did, I didn't spend too long on it because I couldn't immediately think of a woman who had held that post. Once I thought of AG, I remembered Janet ...

Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The usual "Old Guy" gets: LT on "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" (which I read when it was a cult favorite in the 70s). Univac, Folies Bergeres (sp?), Alan Alda. But of course not close to a 4th-podium win. Yep, I got the Robert Pirsig book and was a little surprised it went begging. I g...

Traci here -- I am in fact good at the "fun stuff" I guess? I'm also good at the non-fun stuff. :) And yes, that DD wager haunts me to this day. Dang, Traci! Rough way to go. I started out rooting for Dennis because I liked him from yesterday. He's just a smooth, mellow guy. But you won me over wit...

Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well done by Dennis for knowing how to open play in NIAGARA FALLS with the proper "Slowly I Turned" cadence. Credit to Superman II for my knowing the name of the water vehicle there. Others might remember it from The Office or from Wonderfalls. Some will remember it from, you know, having been on i...

Re: FJs for the 1/13/20 week

Contrary to the poll, and similar to Starship Troopers , there is no movie of A Wrinkle in Time ; whatever might purport to be so is some other thing entirely :? Ha! I remember when the movie Starship Troopers came out. The suggested blurb was "Based on the back cover of a book by Robert Heinlein"....

Terrible FJ. I started with a guess of Prince Charles and stuck with that for no better reason than, as someone upthread said, it seems like the kind of thing he'd do. I figured he's more game than his mother or Prince Andrew. And it would be incredibly tacky for Charles to withhold his own blood an...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/16/2020 (SPOILERS)

Let's try something new this time. Take the poll here, but then let's discuss it in the regular game thread.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5532&view=unread&si ... 802#unread

Alternatively, tell me why you think that's a bad idea and keep your discussion here.
