no clue about order of the garter. Felt OBE
I liked that clue. The clue should lead you to Garter, but OBE isn't a terrible guess, at least.

Mark: On that clue, shouldn't the first order be Order?

Sandy's Hawthorne? Is there some decent logic there for an alternate guess? I'm certain I never looked at Gables or Letter.
I got nothing for her guess.

JBizarro results: KerryOakie is the Lord of the Bizarro world! 8-) . There's no tiebreakers needed as she dominated: 1) 3's assigned with an impressive 22 triples issued. Heck, I wasn't trying, but I still gave away 3's on 17 of 25 days. Seriously? It is harder to defend 80-100 level TCA players, b...

I guessed that Tennyson's request was that the poem not be published.
My guess as well.

That Tennyson clue may have been one of the worst clues in J! history.

I'll admit that I've never heard of the 3rd-most populous of the British Isles. The others of the top 5? Yep.

I had a feeling someone might try to make the poem's name into 10 letters.

And good on Savannah for saying Belle Fourche correctly.

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Always seemed to me that the head start is kinda backwards. A single person should get a 3 step head start and a group of 3 should only get one.

My very first Sandra! An .857 DE, which is 150 points over my average with only 10 UfPA. 'Twas a very good season.
I was just the opposite. The only personal records I set were bad ones: my worst-ever DE with .545 and my highest UfPA ever at 40. Earned me a well-deserved trip back to C.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Huh. In your 1D history, it now shows if you broke into the top 50%, not just 5, 10 and 20 (if you get a label for being higher than 5%, I wouldn't, personally, know ) Champion is the only higher label. If you exclude Runner-up. Ah, OK. Don't have one of those, so I didn't know it existed.

Re: Friday, June 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As mentioned above, Alex seemed to state it most every time it was possible to and I don't recall anyone complaining about it then. What's so different now? Alex also frequently pointed out things like "not a runaway game" or "you have exactly half the leader's score", and was criticized plenty of ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I’m not big on stats, but I’ve been playing since LL72 and I’ve never broken 100 TCA. Currently sitting at 98 TCA with one match day to go. I’ve already beaten my previous record of 96 TCA from (checks notes) LL 86, 87 and 88! Yeah, one of these seasons I will. My record is 97. I have 89 this seaso...

Re: Friday, June 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm sure they go over it beforehand, but the guest hosts really need to be mentioning that. Do they? Does every game need the rules explained for viewers every time? NFL matches would -never- begin... Who's talking about the viewers? I'm talking about the host stating it to the person making the wa...
