Oy! And I thought yesterday was painful to watch. Yeah, I really felt bad for Priscilla as she looked like she was struggling out there. Veronica wisely stayed clam while her two opponents self-destructed. FJ was easy if you knew that SA was East of the bulk of NA.

Nope, he just drifted away I suppose. Hasn't been on in nearly two years. I can't say I'm unhappy about that. I mean... should we check obits?

If Brad continues to be outplayed, my prediction is that either Ken or James will win the tournament.
That seems to be rather a safe bet. :mrgreen:

Didn't think it was possible to get Zola w/o Dreyfus, but what do I know? It's not surprising to me. The name Zola came to me right away. It took a few more seconds to get to Zola. I could see myself blanking on it under the lights. J'accuse! Going from that DJ round into the GOAT Tournament was a ...

p.s. I think his name is most commonly spelled Sequoyah.

Yes, bring it back for non-celebs and definitely make contestants from Regis' run eligible again. I've got some unfinished business to take care of!

I wonder if this will be a trial balloon for a potential re-launch of WWTBAM? I wouldn't be unhappy to see it come back and maybe not filmed in a quonset hut on the LV strip.

What an interesting start to the tourney. It was fun to see Ken's intensity and his ultimate triumph on this day. Once again, James's speed on the Before, During and After clues (which vex me no end) is truly awe-inspiring. I was particularly aggrieved over the Lewis and Clark Clifford Odets clue: R...

Yikes! This was another painful game to watch. Constitutional Amendment on Property Tax? Really? Karen is a solid champ who’s had some very good gets. Still, I haven’t been overly impressed with many of her competitors. It will be interesting to see how far her run goes and how she fares in the TOC.

I own a home in South Haven, so I should get honorary Michigander status or sumfin. Got Grand Rapids and Saginaw, NHO of Jackson and didn’t recall Interlochen in time (said Traverse City just to say something).

Ridge is one of my favorite California wineries. The drive up to their winery from Cupertino is not for the faint of heart.

And they wouldn't even throw us a "holiday song" bone in the clue. Somehow, I got stuck on "The Larch" and couldn't get off it. https://youtu.be/mBcTXBhYzfM There ya go. One problem: the larch isn't evergreen. It's one of three deciduous conifers that I know of, along with the Dawn Redwood and Bald...
