Re: 2018 Teachers Tournament Wild Card Standings (Final results

What's the normal wildcard cutoff for the Teachers Tournament? I'd guess it's lower than for the College Championship, but that's just based on a feeling, not any actual data. They're not all Colbys up there. If Ranjani had wagered 9201, I'd understand that she was trying to get ahead of Steve if he...

An even bigger coincidence is that all of the wins this week so far have been on the third LECTERN.
Is it ironic that the area the contestants stand ON might be considered a podium when it's elevated?

For FJ... RIP Nora Ephron, apparently. I never would have guessed her in 13.772 billion years.

And I know that, but just like "Which of Jupiter/Saturn/Uranus/Neptune is biggest", it blatantly refuses to stick in my head no matter how hard I force it. About Yellowstone and Yosemite - one way to remember which is which is by visiting them. Or just pick one - Yellowstone is closer to you. You'r...

Re: Tuesday, May 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

My only worry with this FJ is that the new building might have some other name, but if that were the case, nobody would get it, so why not guess the Globe Theatre?

I'm not sure when they were completed, but it was funny to imagine the Gherkin or the Shard with a thatched roof.

French name + 19th century + adventure = Verne. Works for me. It took me about half the think music to stop trying to think of where I knew that name from and just do that. I was thinking of the wrong book ( Journey to the Center of the Earth ), but fortunately Verne wrote all of those. Another poo...

I only care about the kind of prog that might have a new Judge Dredd or Strontium Dog story in it (j/k, I don't care about those either), but I got Emerson, Lake and Palmer immediately and was also surprised it was a TS. I had nothing for FJ. I couldn't even think of a decent joke answer like Paris ...

I got this one by going "Fashion and luggage? Sounds like Louis Vuitton. Oh hey, LV. Cool."

I think a case could be made that Cool Runnings is the most well-known '90s sports movie in the world.

I hate these types of FJs where you're supposed to get to the correct answer based on some quote that gives someone's opinion or analysis of something. Me too. If I'd known Robert Frost and Whitman weren't contemporaries, I would have grudgingly guessed the correct answer, but I didn't, and I didn'...

It was the first thing I thought of, but it seemed like more of a Utah Historical Site than a US Historical Site, if that makes sense. Then I realized the significance of the folded flag and switched to the correct response.

I'm sorely tempted to take Alex's reading of "These nuts" at the start of IT GROWS ON TREES, $400, out of context, and hope someone else does it so I don't have to. I think someone at BOFA took care of that. For FJ, I spent the first twenty seconds or so thinking they wanted a three-word phrase. I ...
