If 30% of the league knew it then the other 60% could have been guessing 50/50 between the two, seems pretty reasonable.
I definitely flipped the Koin.

I'd put her 3rd, between Cohen and Rodgers.

Sotomayor/Souter here, which is at least alliterative.
That was my guess, too.

I also had Monument Station instead of Charing Cross. Ah well.

Probably would have got it anyway, but I'm currently listening to the excellent Talking Sopranos podcast with Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti) and Steve Schirippa (Bobby Baccalieri), so this was a gimme.

Ursula von der Leyen? Not in a million years Same here. That was one of those where I thought, "Gotta be Merkel". I can't name another female German 'politician', so I put her down. For defense I wavered between a 0 and a 3 -- I knew it probably wasn't Merkel, but didn't want to chance it -- and sa...

For the last DJ clue, I said viticulture rather than wine since they are growing grapes in the photo. Judges?
I messed that up. I figured since the seller is called a vintner, it must be vinticulture. Oops.

+1 lunch break. Even if I had thought of coffee break, I probably would have discounted it as I didn't think it would be something in a union contract.

Also, never heard of buffalo plaid.

J! will not be shown on Friday in the Orlando area due to some 5-year anniversary retrospective on the Pulse shooting. Can't just push that to 8 or 9 PM? Ah well.

Like many boardies, I often lie awake pondering the ideal format of the next Ultimate Tournament of Champions.
Many? "Some", sure. A few, yeah. A couple, most likely.

Also, why would pre-FJ scores count for anything? That's silly.

The book is Bridge OVER, the movie is Bridge ON. Why that wasn't negged, I have no clue.

Never thought of Vivien Leigh. Instead I went with another Williams favorite: Vanessa Redgrave.

I guessed illegal man downfield, though I felt that would be a very tough get for transoceanics.
In case it ever does come up, the penalty is ineligible receiver (or member of the kicking team) downfield. They'd probably still give it to you for what you said, but why chance it.

I have almost zero clue on the moon phases, but A would have been my last choice.

So, what's the correct answer?
C

It starts at new moon (dark), waxing crescent, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, third quarter, waning crescent, new moon.

Any chance they'll stop the contestant interviews? This would be as good a time as ever to do it.
I like the chat segment. It gives me another 2-ish minutes to watch what's on my DVR.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Gotta say, I'm baffled that over half the league doesn't know what a first down signal looks like. Sadly, combined with my horrendous defense this season, that turned my six-pack into a 9(6)-9(5) tie.
