Mark Warner is a current Senator, and was formerly Governor of Virginia.
The list is only those who have run for President.

Re: Wednesday, July 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ, but possibly too late and I almost certainly wouldn't have gotten it while under pressure. I couldn't remember who Reagan ran against in 1984, but I knew that 1980 fit. Sen.

It’s a good clue to solve on the early side with so much to write. Justin took a slight shortcut with the ordinal number while no one dared go with only Timid wagering definitely cost Justin the game. Can't say I have ever heard of the word "cager" used in relation to basketball. I'm guessing they ...

I needed about another 5 seconds. I couldn't get back to 1980 quickly enough.

Yes, we had the possibility of a tie-breaker but I was pretty sure Michelle wasn't going to bet it all.
I would have staked my life that she made the wrong wager.

I went with Cortes.

I hope I'm not the only one who simply couldn't figure out the theme.

My hearing may be going, but I would swear Johanna left off “ what is” in her answer to the Newton question. I also thought she missed it on her Bell answer, but she might have muttered it under her breath.
It was left off.

Re: TD387 - morbeedo's Revenge - Q6 & Bonus Results

If you’re counting doubles players for the tennis question, should Venus Williams be a correct answer? Man, if I knew you were going with doubles, I would have busted out my guaranteed single of Gator Great Lisa Raymond. She has the career slam in doubles and 3 of the 4 in mixed doubles (and a Bron...

The FJ! clue had Turkey while I went French for a Hammer special of Cerasus reminds me in its look & sound of cerise. I translated that into English and was done.
That's what I did, too. Had about the same level of confidence in it.

In the contestant chats, Steve mentioned that he found an error in Ken Jennings's book Maphead. Well I have just noticed an error in Ken's Trivia Almanac. He put down 50 Cent's real name as Curtis JOHNSON instead of Curtis JACKSON. I am probably not the only person who noticed that error. I only ma...

"SOMEONE WITH EXTRA ACREAGE BETWEEN EYEBROWS & HAIRLINE MAY BE PUNNINGLY CALLED THIS". I forgot the category was BY THE NUMBERS so I guessed "highbrow". Yeah, what was the correct response to that one? Didn't sound like something I was familiar with. "Five-head" (as opposed to forehead) Ok, thanks....
