Re: Wednesday, June 3, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wouldn't have gotten Loretta Lynch before she took FIFA down last week. She's out to destroy soccer and pull its still-beating heart from out its chest. That has to somewhat placate the conservatives who tried to logjam her confirmation. Seems to me she is trying to save soccer-futbol from its ow...

That's my strategy if I ever get on the show: throw a tantrum every 2 or 3 minutes.

I had no clue that's what Hawaii's flag looked like.
It was the only flag I recognized, so I dropped the q, figuring it would sheep.

Re: The Scrips Nationel Speelling Be [Spoilers for 2015]

It seems to me that the spelling bee is irrevocably broken, a cute juvenile distraction ruined by a segment of the Indian-American population that takes it way too seriously. I'm not trying to land any low blows here; I'd think it would be an awful stereotype, except that South Asian civic organiza...

I'm there too. Play you on day 6, I think.

I honestly thought the poor man would just go with age. And his wife, also. I am forever grateful to have seen Nash in person some years back when he ...

AHDN was such a headslap. :oops: I've never seen any of the Beatles' movies, was pretty sure the question was referring to a Beatles movie, but only 2 names came to mind, eliminated Sgt.

And NelsonK in second place? Something is terribly wrong here.

And seriously, i think there were 6 BWAs. I didn't find one of them remotely funny. I really wonder about Thorsten.
