Re: TD 338 - March Madness - Q5 & Q6 revealed

You be a fan of who you're a fan of, and I'll be a fan of who I am a fan of, SBurrus . North Carolina, the state and university can be dogged until kingdom come...nothing, NOTHING will ever stoop to make me remotely ashamed of being from the Tar Heel State AND supporting UNC.

So... Godspeed Me! Black Empress? :geek: ;) I will be ticking the "I was surprised and very pleased to see a GY!BE reference in Wednesday's game thread" for this weekend's poll. 8-) If I were in the habit of writing down my FJ responses, I probably would have realized I was misspelling excelsior (t...

Re: Wednesday, March 29, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, I royally hate that FJ just couldn't quite come to me like it should have tonight, the nut for all that is space and sci-fi-esque words I usually am. My mom got it, and the very moment she said 'godspeed', I knew she was right. Oy... My brain honestly wasn't and isn't what it usually is tonigh...

Re: Tuesday, March 28, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I too immediately first thought of Appomattox when the FJ clue was presented. But a third into the think music, I switched gears to Gettysburg and stuck with it, knowing the war ended in 1864, not 1863. Um, no. The war ended on April 9, 1865. Dutifully corrected, and thank you. And I knew that abou...

Re: Tuesday, March 28, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Did the math, but didn't think Gettysburg was 1863, I thought that was the last year of the war (which, yes, I now know was 1865) and the most appropriate locale I could think of was Appomattox Court House. I too immediately first thought of Appomattox when the FJ clue was presented. But a third in...

Count me as yet another one who made the four letter mistake...I said 'G'day'. :lol: When the answer was revealed and I realized what happened, it was all I could do to not (gently) bang my head on my desk. I often confuse clues where they say "this name number word/phrase". I tend to be good for th...

Top ten is completely alright with me...although if only I'd gone with Argyle instead of Houndstooth (I figured a bunch of people would jump on the former considerably more-so than the latter...oops. :oops: ).

Merci beaucoup for a most marvelous TD!
