Re: Tuesday, December 27, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Spent 20 seconds convincing myself that this would've coincided with women's suffrage (and not any later movements), then couldn't remember when exactly the 19th amendment was passed :oops: Then I took an educated guess, and lucked out. I'll take it. It was in 1920, when Wilson was still president ...

Re: Reretaken Down

The entire BCS system is so broken and corrupt that things like this aren't worth getting worked up about anymore. Water is wet, the sun rises in the east, and the BCS bowls will screw over non-power conference teams the first chance they get, no matter how many times they kick ass in BCS bowls and...

So did about ten other teams when the AFL and NFL merged (which is what Cincinnati's joining was part of. The Bungles formed in '68).

If Niall wasn't going for the lead on that final FJ, I think his ideal wager would've been 900, and take the dive. Yeah, it ain't cricket, but whatever it takes to win! Problem is there was no way of knowing for sure if it was the last clue, as it turned out to be. unless he hemmed and hawed a bit ...

Those of you who went thru the divisions are doing it wrong. There were only two NFL teams added during the '70s--The Seattle Seahawks and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Exactly. And being a Bucs fan since Day 1, I knew that it wasn't them and also knew that Seattle came in at the same time -- instaget.

One never refers to driving 100 "kilos". Actually, that was the (main) reason for my initial concern. Around here, that's the only meaning of 'kilo' by itself (other than to signify the letter 'k'). Speak for yourself, Ontario boy! "Kilo" around here is weight; as opus pointed out, around here you'...

1. A globe is a sphere ( I know it should be an oblate spheroid, but close enough). As a sphere, the term 'side' is not really applicable. True, but the clue was about an icosagon, not an icosahedron. The top-down view of The Globe would be an icosagon. 2. I knew the globe theatre wasn't named for ...

Paddy Wagon comes from the 'fact' that all of the hooligans taken away by it were Irish. It is one of those politically-incorrect terms that persists through these far-too-politically-correct times.
