"Behind the curtain" was the correct response and I wonder if the judges would have had any reason to neg, "behind the scenes"?
I had "scenes" and I'm counting it.

I had Midler for FJ.

There is no Dade County any more. It's Miami-Dade.

I would also add to that list:
Manhattan -- New York County
Brooklyn -- Kings County
Queens -- Queens County
Bronx -- Bronx County
Staten Island -- Richmond County

Personally, I thought Kiki was quite overvalued in the top row. Am I wrong?

Instaget FJ.
What lower value could it have had than the top row?
And by over, I of course mean under.

Re: What ought to happen next?

A normal season consists of 230 episodes. The rest of the Alex episodes gets us up to 75 shows in S37. Factoring in the two weeks from the vault, that leaves 145 episodes in the rest of the season. So I wonder if the entire rest of the season will be guest hosts and the permanent one will begin nex...

Instaget FJ. Never considered anyone else.
Mine wasn't quite the instaget, but his was the only name I could come up with from that time. I've certainly heard of Cordell Hull, but if it were him, there's no chance I would have come up with him.

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

I was surprised the "Aa", "Pahoehoe" correct % was as high as it was. Did people get it mostly from Scrabble? I guessed alcohol I think it's just a bit of a common trivia trope that the Hawaiian language has many words for different types of lava (actually, upon looking it up, it seems those are th...

51 for Golden Gate? I was guessing that one would be in the 90s. 51 was shocking, but I wouldn't have thought 90s. I would have guessed 80%. I only missed Luxemburg yesterday with the MCWA of Franz. Still got the win and I'm in good shape as we've crested the halfway point of the season. I just rea...

Hit and miss in the AMA category. I clammed on Eilish since I wasn't sure if she'd had another hit yet, and on Jonas Brothers because I know there are only three of them yet there were five people in the footage. Pretty sure there's a fourth JoBro--he was known as "the bonus Jonas"--but I'm not loo...

Apparently this is now on hiatus until January. Right?
A new episode this Monday the 23rd is what I see using four different sources.
I show new episodes this Monday and the following one (I only get 14 days in advance).

I flipped the Kosman Koin for the southern gothic writer and it landed on Carson McCullers.
I went with Ann Rice. She's about as southern gothic as it gets to me.

Judges, is Valhalla too specific to be a substitute for Asgard?

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

a spare is 10 plus the number of pins on the next roll. You get nothing for converting the spare in the 10th frame. But you do get a third ball in the tenth frame for converting the spare, right? Check out the scenario shown in this example. The bowler gets a third ball in the tenth frame due to co...
