Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

I completely blew my defense yesterday and lost on a 7(5) to 9(5). I thought that given my opponent's age and geographic location (South), he would FOR SURE know Lynyrd Skynryd and gave it the 0. Nope. This is the second time you've mentioned your MD25 opponent's age. I surely have no idea what you...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Congrats to Aria, Pat, Matty, and all the boardies who did so well! I completely blew my defense yesterday and lost on a 7(5) to 9(5). I thought that given my opponent's age and geographic location (South), he would FOR SURE know Lynyrd Skynryd and gave it the 0. Nope. I missed the eclipse question,...

Re: TD 300 - Numerophobia - Q1 Revealed!

Hey, my fellow 1Q84 respondents - have any of you read this book? I did a few years ago. So weird. Absolutely trippy.

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

I dropped to boardie TreeofHeaven on a 4(3) to 5(4). Better defense on my part would have pulled a tie, but he was strong with film questions, so I gave it a 1. I could also have tied if I had pulled out Hardball! I have never mentally connected Chris Matthews with the Carter administration. I am su...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Well, I officially washed out my rookie season in LL. My three remaining competitors will almost certainly beer against me, as even Mr. 22nd ranked did yesterday. Sigh. I have the third highest DE in RRFH, at .750, but it doesn't matter when they beer anyway against me. I was so excited to use my MB...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Somehow, I have managed to claw my way up to 2nd place in the rundle and landed myself on the Magnolia Sandra leaderboard. I don't think I'm going to be able to keep up my winning streak, but it's fun while it lasts. We have faith in Aria. Go Aria! I'm proud of you! I lost on a 5(4) to 6(5) to the ...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

My 8-match undefeated streak ended on MD19, with a 1(2)-4(3) loss, dropping back to #6. There were two bad misses on the day: World War II is perhaps, next to the Civil War, the war that is most interesting to me and one I have spent a lot of time reading about and watching documentaries about but ...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Thanks for the shout out! If only my tv gig could have ended up as close as our LL faceoff did. Trying to play D in a rookie league's a lot of hit-and-miss, so I lucked out this time against you. I was kicking myself for not remembering St. Vincent - I was cramming a LOT on world capitals leading u...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

I fell another place in the Central R Div 1 rankings. I am one spot into D Rundle right now. One of my fellow Teacher Tournament participants has answered the same number of questions correctly but is 4th in his rundle. I don't know if you're talking about me, as a couple of days ago I was 4th in m...

Argh! I took my debaters to the pool, which closed at 11 PM, Mountain. As we were coming up the elevator, I remembered that I hadn't submitted today! I got it in a minute late. I hope there's a grace period! I got a warning that since it was late, it may not be considered. I am not a cheater. I don...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Slowly climbing out of dead last with two ties in a row. Yesterday's was 4(3)-4(3). (I miraculously had a 0(0) tie the day before that.) I got Willy Loman and Boggle (one of my favorite games, but I can never get anyone to play with me), in addition to Ernst. My opponent traded Boggle for Dillinger...

I am so excited! I've never done so well!! So far, at least!! I always loved The West Wing! What a great show.

how did so many people get the Loudoun County one? just osmosis, or is there anything particular you know it from? Every so often the list of wealthiest counties gets rolled out and there's always a mention they're around the W.DC area (lobbyists, etc.) So for me, it was between VA and MD and when ...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

I got Virginia, Beaufort, and Seventh Seal correct. I tied on defensive points because my opponent, who had missed every film question thus far, managed to come up with Seventh Seal, which I had considered obscure and awarded 3. I have no excuse for missing Union Carbide. I remember the incident. I ...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Sad day for me yesterday. I was so proud of nailing both Mehmet (world history is one of my better categories, but that was a tough question) and Kubla Khan (literature is not my strong point). But despite being the only one in my rundle to get three right (and the only one who got Mehmet), I still...

These were great boards for me! Knew most of the answers! I had to watch with the commenter since I'm on the road.

Amber - You played very well! Hunter was a formidable opponent. Congrats on a great game!
