Re: For the LLamas Among Us

I noticed I've got Josh Frumkin in my pool for the next minileague. You'll just have to hope he's so distraught from the Ravens losing to the Pats tomorrow that he won't be thinking straight :D Personally, I have Dan McShane in my pool. I have to keep telling myself 'he only won one more regular se...

Re: Think Different 224: Airplane!

A painful reveal indeed. With each team guaranteed a player, I tried to go through the teams in my head -- I was 13 at the time, and figured I could pull out something. Dodgers? Wasn't sure when they went to the Garvey-Lopes-Russell group, so I avoided them. Expos? Wasn't sure when Rusty Staub left....

Peru was obvious, but when you combine any of the others with Chile, the result is MOST of South America's west coast. Peru is the second-longest by far, but that isn't how they worded it. Sloppy writing, but that's not really an excuse for the contestants blowing it.

I went one step further and said "Arnie's '58 Plymouth Furry". Ooh, sorry. Your misspelling changed the meaning of the word. The judges have ruled you incorrect. How much did you wager?

Re: Wednesday, December 3, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I agree w/above; much negbait, including the FJ which if lacking careful, deliberate and literal reading/interpretation leads you straight off the map; I also got sucked into offering "San Juan" and imagine my shocked surprise to find I had missed D.C., the hometown I love to hate just 40 miles up ...

Children don't have the magnitude necessary for hubris, and certainly no 11-year-old is deserving of a tragic smackdown. I wanted to hear how Cerulean was named, but then I thought the story would just leave me blue. I can't believe I'm the first to mention that he escaped the fate of those who snar...

Re: Friday, November 28, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

First Bull Run/Manassas was the first major battle after Fort Sumter. As has been mentioned, loyalist came from DC to have a picnic and ran home realizing the war would not be over in a few weeks. So it's pretty famous. The battles of Fredericksburg didn't take place until after Antietam and just b...

Re: Friday, November 28, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Potomac is at roughly a 45 degree angle to the Old Line, but West Virginia also comes into play not far from Antietam. Maryland is, as they say, a small state, but there are those who love it enough to know it isn't THAT small.

I have a TD to prove it... :)

Oasis never sounded very Beatles-like to me. The most two Beatles-like songs to me are "Mr. Blue Sky" by Electric Light Orchestra and "Ordinary World" by Duran Duran. How quickly they forget Klaatu. Also the Bee Gees when they first hit it big in 1967. Bee Gees supposedly stood for Beatles Group. G...

It "made sense" that the building at $400 was a train station? Huh?! Because he rode the train there. That does make sense. And did the clue say that? I forget. Only thing I could think of was maybe he stopped at a bar or inn when he got there. In fact, Abe was secretly and clandestinely rushed thr...

Another hot game! It all came down to FJ, which is how games should be. I immediately thought of Sendak but avoided saying it out loud because I'm not fond of that man. Agreed.

Re: For the LLamas Among Us

I blew the TV one by being Pavlovian and NOT RTFQ properly:

"High-rated 1960's TV finale" is The Fugitive, so there it is. I don't blame my opponent for giving me a 0 on this, but I can hear him screaming all the way from Astoria over the 9(5)-9(6) tie.
