Jonathan Franzen - I read The Corrections and didn't like it. Haven't read Freedom because of it. Michael Steele - Our local congr...

Re: LL69: for the LLama Drama

Also, Arjav, while I don't know who any of your rundlemates are, you will have people who are at least occasional boardies and/or have been on the show in your rundle in LL70, no matter which rundle you get placed in unless there's an anomaly with the promotions and relegations. Wonderful! Thanks a...

I had a perfect game until I guessed Hoover on FJ, and turned out I was off by 3 years. I was under the impression that MLK was in '67, but I guess not.

Anderson Cooper mixed up Alexander Haig and Colin Powell. That just underscores the need to bring back Seniors Week.

Are we sure TPH isn't Donald Drumpf [note: I have Drumpfinator installed. sorry.]? He gets advice from people who knows what they talk about, and instead just hoes with his own limited experience. I always thought one of our own could be president. I didn't think it'd be TPH. I'm pretty sure TPH is...

Re: Signaling Devices

There's also Anderson Buzzer Systems, which many quizbowl teams purchase for both practice and bringing to tournaments. You should be able to order a "hand-held button with cable" for $12, which should be good enough.

My first guess on FJ was Tom Daschle before I remembered he ran for re-election in '04 (he had been making noises about running that year). McGovern was an instaget after that. Congrats to Jason on a pretty impressive win, and to Jill and Kaberi for putting up some pretty impressive performances non...

Re: Alpaca Farm quizzes

The 3rd party quiz -- finally a use for all of my reading through the years!

EDIT: With his new Radiohead-themed quiz, Keith Williams has now attained the title of "best boardie ever". However, of course, I might be wrong.

American Gothic comes up way too often at MS quizbowl tournaments, so instagot that one.

Great job to Jill on wagering, I know Keith would be proud. Sorry things didn't work out for you, Chris.
