Re: LL79: For the LLamas

Yesterday I needed one of three things to happen to stay in A: 1. Beat Blue Lion 2. Have #23 lose or tie 3. Have #24 lose or tie I couldn't beat Blue Lion, but the other two things happened. I finished with personal highs in match points and 3-pointers and my second-most TCA, mostly due to the begin...

Re: FJs for the 12/10/18 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( A 5/5 after going 0/5 earlier in the season is like a 9(6) after a 0(0). I watched the All-Star draft on Facebook (not live) and can't believe they flew everyone there just for that. Aren't they taping the episodes next month? Why not...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I'd assumed that my opponent would not know anything about beer production, because his religion forbids it. I was wrong. (About the first thing, not the second.) I keep losing by one point, so even though I'm four games under .500 and nearing relegation, I have a +1 point differential. That differe...

Re: Monday, December 3, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think Dave was at my Philadelphia audition in September- I remember a retired cop, and Pittsburgh is a 4 or 5-hour drive away- so he would've gotten The Call very quickly.
Only reasonable guess I had for Final was Van Heusen, which our 40th president did ads for.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

This is by far the best season I've had. I'm .200 above normal, with at least 3 correct every day and four straight days of at least 5. Regression to the mean is going to hit me like a truck. ...and it did, because after 6 straight days of at least 5 correct, I got a 0(1) yesterday, with 3 MCW's. I...

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

I got credit for "surat," which is a different grammatical form of the word. Not sure what I was more surprised by: the low get rate or its classification as a literature question. I initially put Xerxes, but the last part of the clue- "defeated by Alexander the Great"- was enough to lead me toward ...

Re: FJs for the 10/15/18 week

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( Had an 0/5 week earlier this season, so it was nice to see these. Correctly guessed Thursday's for a stupid reason: "pot" and "kettle" follow "tea," so what character starts with T? :lol: The percentage who went 5/5 may turn out to be...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

After 12 non-rookie seasons, I finally finished in the promotion zone! That means, assuming none of us get moved, I will get to face boardies BoK, BigDaddyMatty, and Blue Lion (that's a lot of B's) next season.
