Re: Monday, December 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Do you notice anything in common between say, WHH and JFK with regards to these Presidents? No. I can't even remember out of eight planets which is the largest. It's Uranus I suspect you were reaching for a joke here but on principle I think it is a bad idea to intentionally feed someone bad inform...

wouldn't it have been awesome if gilligan had done "sunshine on my shoulders"?
This is what happens when you do a TD in a hurry. I remember thinking "Wait, is that the dude from Gilligan's Island? Should I just write 'Denver'? Screw it, moving on..."

Right composer, wrong opera (The Marriage of Figaro). I never made the Don Giovanni <-> Don Juan connection before but will not make this mistake again.

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I could've done without Alex throwing shade at the entire home viewing audience during his opening remarks. For some reason that rubbed me the wrong way. "CLASSIC BRITISH NOVELS' anchored me to novels taking place in Britain so that particular quote did not lead me to any useful associations given t...

Should have gotten FJ as I am very familiar with the term, but instead I could not get "manifestation" out of my head. And really, except for the whole derived-from-Sanskrit thing, it is not too bad.

Incidentally, the quote "Stella! Hey Stella!" is on the list, so it was a good guess...except for the 1951 part. If it hadn't been a decade off, and they hadn't given the years, it would be cheap, because most people just go "Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" when remembering the quote. (Or, at least, that's ho...

I went with The Blue Parrot as thought for an FJ that Rick's was too obvious. Once you get to the correct movie it's really a coin flip.

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I don't understand the calls for a 15-player tournament. We just had one in the spring and it would essentially end up being the same thing except replacing someone with James.

61 clues again and definitely there would have been clues left in this same kind of game at the beginning of the season. Praise again to whoever fixed the problem.

This type of team was chowed down upon in the Andes in 1972.

Nah, I don't think Alex could read that one.
I suppose a joke involving Rugby and Eton wouldn't fly either.

Help me, I can't stop myself.

For the staple Andean crop that might eradicate world hunger, I said "soccer players". But deep down I knew I was probably wrong. So wrong on so many levels. For starters they were rugby players. I've got no other complaints about this. ;) Huh, you're right, they were rugby players. I guess I just ...

I liked the WHAT'S BEING MEASURED category except for the confusion. Count me as one who wouldn't have been any less confused if the category had been taken in order. Is there a better category title that would have made it clear what they're looking for? If not, the category would have benefited f...

Re: TOC semifinal matchups are up

SF1 - Emma finds no DDs and Kyle and/or Dhruv do not miss for big bucks. Emma bested Josh and Eric on the buzzer so I see no reason she can't ring in best against Dhruv & Kyle. For buzzer speed I put Dhruv on equal footing (handing?) with Emma. I think Emma has a broader knowledge base but if Dhruv...

What I expect is: Gilbert vs. Steven vs. Lindsey Francois vs. Emma vs. Dhruv James vs. Kyle vs Rachel Francois vs. Emma vs. Dhruv would be a bare-knuckle brawl and if this comes to pass I predict it will be the most gripping game of the tournament. I know many people are on the James train but I th...

I had no idea the Mark Twain Prize was targeted for comedians and stage performers. He was a writer, and it's called "humor", so it has to be for authors, right?

I had drain for the gargoyle's "downspout"...probably wrong, right? Another case of "right idea, wrong word" for me.
I went with "discharge". I think we could both make a case.
