Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I punted on the FJ, but if I'd tried to name ONE character it would have to be Iago or Yorick (and I don't know if Yorick is a character, and don't need to know lol). Yorick was a skull with zero lines. Not that my WAG of Macduff was much closer. 0 for 8 on FJ's, got a couple of DD's. I've had enou...

There was something on TV Back in the Day that had a Chicago zip mentioned all the time. Either 60601 or 60606. Can't remember if it was a show or an ad. But that is how I knew it instantly (besides knowing Chicago comes in at #3 nowadays). Some help, please? I have a recollection of a game show an...

Welcome, Robin! Best retroactive luck. Your presence should dial back some of the snark. Looks as though Jason got in exactly twice in DJ: on the first and last clues of the round. Has that ever happened before? Not that I expect an answer, but I'm continually amazed by what some folks here (looking...

Re: LL83: Learned League

After seeing my results yesterday, I thought, "One right--ouch! Bet that's only happened a couple times before." Then I looked through Past Seasons. Care to guess how far off that assessment was? It's now happened 14 times. Several matches back I was nearly a hundred points above my career get rate ...

The Amtrak conductors have always said Dowagiac as "duh-WAH-jack". Johnny had "DOW-a-jack". I grew up 30 miles from there and yes, it's 'Duh-WAH-giac'. Johnny butchered it so bad, I thought it was just some town I never heard of. We'll see if he gets it right tomorrow and I hope Jennifer doesn't ge...

NHO Triumph, Ducati, or "ultimate driving machine" for BMW, and didn't see the TOM for Kawasaki . That was an oddly tough Motorcycle category. the tom there is ninja...they are known for producing the ninja motorcycle Larger hint if far more dated was that for years beginning in the '70s, Kawasaki'...

Looks like "thorough" for "through" was a vanishingly rare J! typo in the albatross clue (DJ, Ends in "SS" $1600) from Rime of the Ancient Mariner . "At length did cross" this bird, "thorough the fog it came" 0/5 in Women of Science. I saw no way to figure out "engineering" in the first box. I belie...

I'll predict Emma, James, and after that last performance, Francois.
I'll predict the same three finalists. Most likely to break up the party: Dhruv and Lindsey.

That was a TOC FJ? I would expect that to be a trigger in a college tournament.

Yas, 1979 is when Peking became Beijing.
