Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Trade winds popped on J! last night but I’d already submitted my answers. I went 6 for 6 on what was the easiest board for me this season. Slim Whitman ads were ubiquitous in the 70’s/80’s. I’m in the A Rundle but I think I finished at 21 or so.

I’ve been to the Sydney Opera House on a tour and then I saw a modern rendition of Henry V there. It wasn’t very good but when I was there, no operas were performed.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I suspect the reason for the high correct answer level for Bechdel was that she was an answer on HQ trivia the night before. I wouldn’t have remembered her for any other reason.

Re: Monday, September 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

TIL that America's Cup is named after a boat rather than a country. That was a nasty DD, particularly in the second box. Odd. I thought that was fairly common knowledge. I think I learned it from Jeopardy! (most recently 12/24/2013)... The most surprising thing about FJ to me was Jason's apparent l...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I actually saw a Carlton game when I was in Melbourne. I sat next to 2 old guys who very nicely explained everything to me. I enjoyed the game as much as any nfl game I’ve been to. I did mention on a later flight up to Cairns that I’d gone to that game & my seatmate disparaged that sport. She prefer...

FJ: WECIB? Jefferson is on the $2 but that only started in the 70’s, right?

I’m glad to see Jason continue his streak. I liked James when he was on but that promo for the ToC isn’t making me look forward to the ToC.

Hey, I’m a retired air traffic controller too! I only saw blips though. I was torn between rooting for Jason or Barbara. I have seen The Maltese Falcon & “Fat Man” is mentioned a lot. Plus there was a movie about the bomb starting Paul Newman call Fat Man & Little Boy. And yeah, that heavy metal cat...

Rafa Nadal won his 4th US Open on Sunday and it was his 19th Grand Slam overall. He’s one behind Federer at 20. The graceless Federer neglected to congratulate Rafa.

I was in Greenland in July & they’re very proud of that park. I own the Folsom prison CD. I could only think of Texas Instruments because of the Dallas TOM. Foley was my best get which gave me my only perfect day so far!

I’ve always despised the iggles but that FJ was an instaget. At least if Jason answered incorrectly, he named the greatest album of all time. Although Exile On Main Street has nothing to do with California. I’ve been traveling all over this summer, including Oslo wherein we went into The Big Lebowsk...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Eugene was hard to watch. It does seem unfair to bring back players who previously blew it. I’ve enjoyed this show intermittently over the years except for that year with Terry Crews. Let’s hope Mental Samurai sticks around!

I went to tcona in 2015, 2017, and 2018 but I’ve got a Caribbean cruise planned this year. I will miss it and I hope to go there next year. Vegas in August is tough but it’s worth the trip.

You didn't have to know that one the first two were enough, I only know one U.S. capital that starts with "ALBA" Another spent the entire time on his second question, ...

That FJ kills my streak of about 3 weeks. Most of the ones I answered correctly were WECIB for me but I realized that’s not the case for others. I guessed LLF like that brit. I’m glad Steven is returning. That was a great story about running into Aaron!

It took me about then seconds to get his name. I could only think of Marshall & Taney for 19th century Chief Justices So then I went to fish & luckily salmon came early, right after trout! I did look at Chase’s Wikipedia page & he had 3 wives but it doesn’t go into detail. I knew he was on the big b...

That was tough to watch! I was rooting for the lady from the Bronx but those were two hamstrung challengers. Easy FJ. WECIB? Tons of LT but I don’t take notes.

I knew it had to be a recent prez and, as above, I ruled out Bush and Johnson since it looked like a single name. Clinton seemed obvious & as I went backwards I knew it wouldn’t be any of the last ten.
