I'm rooting for Arthur II, but it probably won't happen.
It's on the rocks.
I still think it could happen if he doesn't get caught between the moon and New York City.
That's crazy.
But it's true.
Is that the best that you can do?

Re: Friday, July 21, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had no idea on FJ -- I jumped to the conclusion that it must be one of the armed services songs, for some reason. The Navy and Marine ones seemed unlikely, so I decided it had to be the Army song, but couldn't remember its name. (It turns out, at least according to Wikipedia, that it is sometimes...

I was unaware that UK cities could be clued in as "European", but I'll keep that for future knowledge
How do you classify the United Kingdom? They haven't spent the last year trying to leave the South American Union.

In addition to the Greek-barbarians clue, the mating display was also confusing. I got both, but I was sharply focused on what they were looking for. Under the bright lights, I'm not surprised the contestants got them wrong.

Re: Wednesday, July 12, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

My brain went immediately to Osama Bin Laden, and no matter how much I insisted that 1957 was far too early for that to be correct, it refused to serve up another answer. Stupid brain. In '57 he'd have been a lot closer to 6" tall (and no beard -- probably ...) . :) The New York Times article appea...

Re: Tuesday, June 27, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Since it was the first clue, I didn't realize it was going to be all about colleges and went for Eton, which comes up in crosswords a lot as an "old English school" but is apparently neither on a river nor quite that old. West of London, though. Even though it has college in its name, Eton is a boa...

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

And I regretfully guessed "polo" on the boxing question...my kickboxing instructor would kill me for missing that one! That is the one that shocked me most. I guess "Marquess of Queensbury" is not as well-known as I thought. I was too. As a female, I figured if I knew it immediately, so would every...

Re: Tuesday, May 16, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just a couple of hours before I watched this episode, I finished a story called "I'll Follow the Sun". The Beatles song played a small part in the plot. Shun is not the obvious antonym for follow. If the clue was "You'll Lead the Moon," it would have been easier. This guy could have been an imperfec...

By itself, "still life" is about as useful a clue as work called "Untitled".

I went with Spotify for FJ.

Was this question just YEKIOYD? It seems most of the people who got it right in this thread instagot it, but otherwise, I still can't find a good way to get space travel from the clue. Space travel/astronomy is one of my stronger categories, but I still can't figure out how I was supposed to figure...

No one has mentioned that Alan's pregnant platypus toy shouldn't have a baby inside, but only eggs. It's like an old Michelin tire commercial boasting about rain performance with a baby in a tire. The infant was using the tire as a boat, styled as Noah with pairs of stuffed animals, but two of them ...

Would it have been dirty, or just sneaky, to throw in a 'Pete' clue in place of the extra 'Ringo' clue?
Or a "Stu" for that matter.
