Disappointed at the absence of Fleetwood Mac in the Chain category.
Chain was in quotation marks; "The Chain" isn't really something that the show would ask in that spot.

You've forgotten that he bet $0 with runaway games three times and punted all three of them. Take those away and he was 85.7%.

I mean, there's the Buzzy Cohen strategy (playing for the win so you don't have to worry about wild cards)... There's really no way to rationalize Tim's FJ wager. It was extremely risky because a wrong FJ answer essentially eliminates him and a much smaller wager would essentially have guaranteed a...

I’ve been a baseball fan for 40 years and don’t think I’ve ever heard of Wins Above Replacement. :oops:
It's a pretty important sabermetric stat.

Re: Tuesday, November 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mary Ann is certainly quick and has good range of knowledge, but her competition has been, well, underwhelming. I don't think we know yet how she'll respond to a good test. Though maybe she'll star in the next adaptation of Sailor Moon. Give me a break. Someone's putting up an average Coryat north ...

Re: Etiquette question

I've been watching the old(ish) ToC episodes that are on Netflix; is it out of line for me to dig up the threads for those and comment on them if I feel so moved? wouldn't see why not...i see people digging up threads from several years ago on a regular basis That doesn't make it good etiquette (wh...

But I thought every American schoolchild knew Gene Autrey wrote "Rudolph." Every American schoolchild probably did, between 1950 and 1960.

I'm going to take the other side on "Sky's the Limit".

Ratings and website traffic go through the roof with the long streaks, and it helps keep people thinking about the show.

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Interesting...unless I'm missing something, this tells me there are two possibilities: 1. Pass a test and your name stays on the list for a minimum of one more cycle to be randomly selected for an audition (I really doubt this one) I remember it being mentioned at my last audition that the audition...

Along with caps lock lecturing?
I thought you'd be familiar with the conceit of capitalizing a category name.

(However, I toned down my thoughts.)

This game is a draw for the Weak Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "small." --Bob Not sure of the exact definition, but hiw bet was too big.

And I'll grant that Oscars is a tougher category that it might otherwise seem, given that there are close to 100 years of Oscars with 5 (or more) nominees in each of the big categories. Still, they tend to focus on winners in the past 40 years so it's at least a tad more manageable than some other ...

I don't get how this FJ was a complete miss - and that Doug didn't even hazard a guess (which - ok?).

Then again, movies seem to a weak spot for contestants so the writers are going to keep going back there.
I'm betting the category elicited a reaction of "wtf" from many.
