Me too! Though, like Pauerpoint, I also knew the Downton connection.

WOW! Pranjal is unseated as champ. Congrats, Pranjal, on a great run!

Congrats to Barbara for savvy wagering in FJ. Her DD bet turned out to be good, too. I wish she'd have pulled out Gone with the Wind.

I knew FJ immediately and was surprised it was a TS.

Re: Monday, July 25, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Darn it, Pranjal. I thought that I could clearly root for only Andrew Pau during the next ToC. Now my rooting interest is split. All kidding aside, congratulations on your fifth win, and doing it in such a dominating fashion. I really like all three of the longest-reigning players (Andrew, Pranjal,...

Re: Monday, July 25, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Hey, congrats, Pranjal, and welcome to the TOC! You are a formidable competitor! I think the issue with the Andrew Johnson DD may have been that he was trying to puzzle out the first VP to replace a President who died in office. That is how my daughter and her friend misheard/read the clue. I told t...

Slam dunk on FJ. Once you get the 10-4, along with 1978, had to be CB Radio. I went from October 4 to 10-4 good buddy to CB radio! Hooray! I am rocking FJ these past few weeks! Of course, I went 1/4 on the FJs I actually got to answer... Pranjal is doing great! Congrats, Pranjal! I also struggled t...

Many thanks to Jillyjill, without whose persistence this likely would not have happened.
Matty, you will be awesome! Can't wait to see you on the show!

JillyJill and CorriereC are in group 6 with me, but I don't owe them any vengeance. Yet.

My 12 yr old daughter agreed with you about the easy boards. And she and I both got FJ right.

Re: Tuesday, July 12, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was surprised myself by dine and dash getting dinged. I liked Amy's bold wager and told her as much after the game, though she could have gone bigger. Was happy to see someone realizing they needed to go big. But once I saw the numbers remaining on the board I just stopped ringing. No need to ris...

Me too. I was bummed out by that DD. Sigh. Sad to see Bonnie go. She represented Iowa well!

I got this FJ too - a whole week of correct FJ answers for me! Certainly a record.

Hooray for Bonnie and a big payday! I loved her smile! She seemed to be really having a great time playing the game. She also was not afraid to bet up her DD. Of course I'm going to root for the Iowa lady! ;) With Melissa Spencer in March as well, we're having a great few months on the show! I got F...

Re: Tuesday, July 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was bummed that Liz didn't recognize the crush situation with FJ, and bet it all instead of 0, which cost her the game. Doesn't everyone watch "The Final Wager" before going on the show? Why would she want to bet $0 as opposed to $2601-$2999? (Range for locking out 3rd place and getting ahead of ...

Matt had good academic knowledge and played the game strategically. It doesn't surprise me that he's a former Quiz Bowler. Matt Jackson was from Yale, right? I noticed we had a second Zumba answer in two months! My buddy Chris Tempro in the Teacher Tournament gave the response with lots of verve! I ...

Re: Tuesday, July 5, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Today's game was not as sharp. I was psyched to get the LT of "Bartelby the Scrivener," but I'm an English teacher, after all. :) I guessed the FJ correctly, and not just because I recently visited Temple Square in SLC. I read the book, _The Nineteenth Wife_, which gave me a sense of the general tim...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

I don't know that I'll get many 6 packs, but I'll surely face fewer than I did in my Rookie season, given my placement in E. ;) One thing I've noticed about LL is that the best sign that a league will be broken up is if more than 23 members of the A rundle are above the relegation line. Another goo...
