Is there anything preventing the second A from being Ararat?
It's got to be the one they're going for. Doesn't matter if something else fits.

I wonder what percentage of people here watch any of the summer reruns. For me, it's a 6-week break and 30 extra minutes of free time every weekday.
Exactly.

Just to confirm that I was also serious. I realize that tone does not come across very well in text, so it can be hard to recognize seriousness.
I was serious, too. I guess it would have been correct to say that I had heard of him, but didn't bother remembering him.

I said US Post Office. Now I'm curious whether that would have been acceptable, since they took Postal Service.
They'd have to take it. It's a common-enough nickname.

After thinking about it a few minutes, Still Crazy After All These Years would have been my next reasonable guess.
A Paul Simon album for "L.A.-situated rock"?

Re: Wednesday, July 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had never heard of Carle, either. I did guess Sendak and my only other thought was Richard Scarry (who never won, wtf). But I decided Scarry was more like Marc or Rousseau than Picasso. I've never heard of Carle either. Sendak was an instaget for me. I've probably read Where the Wild Things Are m...

The FJ! clue was a Dawson Crossin' that worked in my favor as I eliminated Alaska in considering if it was some kind of situation with Sarah Palin having company on either end of serving. I went the right way in recalling two of the J women for the correct spot for enough to tip the scales for a gu...

Defense in MLs is tough as a general rule.
In any ML I'm in, my defense is always either 0,1,1,2,2,3 or 3,2,2,1,1,0. I don't bother wasting time on it.

Can someone research the get rate for tie-breaker clues? I've only seen a handful but my recollection is that they have all been fairly easy and they reduce to a buzzer speed competition.
Not including last night's game:

Do you have any data on anybody not betting it all from second in this scenario? It blows my mind that anybody would do that.
I would guess the wrong bet happens more often than the correct bet (but I'm not going to go hunting for examples).

Re: Wednesday, July 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mrs Penguin and I both figured FJ was referring to the Compleat Angler guy, but neither of us could pull his name. I made it from there all the way to the first name (Isaak) but whiffed the surname with Singer realizing too late. Doubtful I could've gotten to the right surname... At least Isaac Bas...

I would have hated to be in the spot to get to his famous work and then blank on his name.
That was pretty much me for about 10 or 12 seconds. Thankfully, it came to me.
