Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

I read O Pioneers! & I think I own My Antonia. I’ve heard of Death Comes For the Archbishop but it took me some time to get there. Death in Venice & Agee’s book helped. I’ve never heard of the last one. Is it any good? I knew most of the others except for the YouTube guys. I read about them briefly.

AC, I saw the episode where you’re the plus one. I went from my DVR not recording any episodes to getting 2 different episodes per day.

I was sure it was anisette. I don’t enjoy bitter liqueurs. I did get the other 5 correct but my opponent got all 6!

Instaget FJ. I didn’t pay close attention to the entire game as I’m a Florence refugee but I’ll probably rewatch it next week.

I went 6 for 6! I wouldn’t have known Chopin except for a trip to Poland 🇵🇱 in July. He’s a huge hero there. I thought Talla was correct except I couldn’t think of a river in MS but I gambled.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

3 weeks after 9/11, I was in Scotland and hiked up Ben Lomond. It’s quite misty up there. I guessed David Robinson instead of Nowitzki. I’ve heard of the latter but I thought he’d been on a few teams.

Total guess on the race courses but I got them in the correct order! I’m having a pretty good run...

Live look-in at me waiting to hear my WWTBAM air date. https://media.giphy.com/media/UxREcFThpSEqk/giphy.gif I’m confused because I saw your episode today but I didn’t see that heavyset woman with the short hair that’s in the video above. My DVR seems to record only one episode a day. ETA: apparent...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

When I lived in NY & I had to drive south, I went over that horrible Delaware Memorial Bridge & Delaware is so small that I figured WECIB. I had 5/6, missing the veggie question. I’ve had no trouble with the site.

Alex Is Leaving?

It sounds like he’ll retire at the end of the current contract in 2020 & he’s even got candidates in mind to replace him.

I was just talking about loggerheads earlier today since I live along the SC coast. It’s a pleasure watching Donnie Baseball play! Yep, easiest FJ of the season.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I forfeited the first game of the season because I completely forgot about it & then I forfeited one other game because I normally try to answer everything as soon as I look at the questions but something came up and I realized at 1:05am that I blew it. Anyway, I ended up in 1st in my C Rundle so th...

I’m now first in my Rundle! And I’ve been playing mostly while traveling in the Caribbean 2 weeks ago and now in Poland. I just hope I can win tomorrow! Happy 4th of July to all!

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

I had a 6/6. I led off with Algiers but it bothered me & Carthage swayed me to Tunis. The next four were instagets & I had no idea about the play except I figured it was a gay play & AiA is the most famous one.

Re: LearnedLeague 77 - Official Thread

Hi all! I know I shouldn’t have waited until the last minute but I’m going on a cruise tomorrow & I was hoping to play my matches tonight because I don’t think I’ll have good(or any!) WiFi on the ship. Do I just email TI or is there a different way to get the quizzes early? I did this about 9 months...

Re: Millionaire 2017-18 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

On my recent trip to London, I took in “Quiz” in mid-May. It’s about the brit version of WWTBAM & a scandal involving an unlikely winner on the show. There’s a withering portrayal of Chris Tarrant & a bit of audience voting. I recommend it!

I was also traveling (Ireland & England) so I just caught this episode last night. Larry was talking about a semi-literate soccer star during his interview. Any guesses?

Re: Friday, April 27, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alex’s comeback of, “Well, you should still know it!” was kind of funny. I’m not Buddhist or Hindu but I usually get the clues about them on J. I didn’t see “legendary” as literal so I thought of Isabella.
