Re: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Made an accurate precall today, not only of the disaster but the phrase. Couldn't believe it when he read the clue! If you plan to visit the Hindenburg crash site, you'll need permission (and have to be a US citizen) because it's on a military base. However, you can drive past it on CR 547 and see a...

This is my fourth 5+ streak since December 5. (Final) Jeopardy must be getting easier because I'm not really getting smarter.
Through December 5: 25/53
Since: 28/32
Hmm.

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

These boards were Celebrity Jeopardy level. The combined Coryat was $3200 more than the previous season high (October 8, 2018). A picture of a hunting structure when you're spotted a hint about ironically not being able to see, for $2000?! Only two choices for Final, but when I saw "battles in their...

Re: Wednesday, January 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

AT's pronunciation of "Oh yeah" was just like his impression of the actors in Fargo, so my response was Faygo , which I'm pretty sure is carbonated. Anyway, that's the official soft drink of juggalos, not Nebraskans. More Snoopy clues in the future, writers! I went 12/12 on the Peanuts 1DS and thoug...

Second 5/5 in three weeks, and 16 of my last 17. I went 25/53 before this run.

Thursday snapped my longest FJ streak ever (10).
"What are moccasins?" sounds like "water moccasins," which I definitely would NOT want to walk around with! :lol:

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: 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: 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.
