Kind of surprised the MCW on Carousel was Oklahoma. My Kosman Koin was between Carousel and State Fair; I couldn't figure which one was more likely to have a barker as a character.
Yep. I had State Fair because of barker.

Re: LL83: Learned League

My 3rd straight tie -- this one the elusive 0(1)-0(1) -- obviously I found yesterday's set very difficult.

Drops me to 5th (the last promotion spot), but I do control my own destiny.

3M was an instaget. An ex-girlfriend of mine was a chemist there and was on the team that developed Scotch-Brite. But how many of you trivia Buffs remember when they were in the board game business?
I still have my copy of Thinking Man's Golf, which is a 3M product, I believe.

Anyone else get hit in the feels when Alex read "I'm Dyin' Up Here!"?
Yes.

And I also can't tell you how much I hate the phrase, "In the feels". It's right up there with, "X happened and we just can't". :)

Keep this up and there won't be a 2020 thread... (or was that the plan all along?)
Nothing on the whole of page 36 is worth putting on a flashcard.
If there is a 2020 thread, I'll be deleting any and all irrelevant comments to the thread (like arguments -- if you need to argue, do it in PMs).

Carrying over from the cantankerous thread - there was a great nugget buried here: how many sports do woman and men compete against one another? 1) Darts 2) Equestrian events - although the horses should get some of the credit ;). 3) Motor sports 4) ??

Chess? At the lower levels, yes, but very rarely at the highest levels. is that only because that's how things have worked out, or are there different men's and women's divisions at the highest levels? if it's divisions, any idea why (other than us old white men really aren't as good at running the...

KABC will be pushing J! back 2 hours on Christmas (9:00PM) to make room for a Clippers Lakers game. So if I'm getting preempted...everyone else, give it a quick confirm, just to be safe. I'm definitely preempted here. I'll just read the FJ clue off the board here and that'll be good enough for me.
