Re: Tuesday, March 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

You don't have to know The Agony and the Ecstasy, you just have to have learned the phrase "Carrara marble." I don't have an idea where I know it from. It means nothing more to me than "Corinthian leather." A buzz phrase, probably used promotionally. I have no interest in marble, or even "tiling an...

I'm really enjoying Katie's hosting.

I was shocked by the triple miss, but I'm more surprised at the seemingly-low get rate here. The movie of The Agony and the Ecstasy is very good as well.
I've seen the movie, but that was about 40 years ago, so small details may have been forgotten. :)

Katie was probably aghast that two players old enough to remember Wild World of Sports didn’t know where the cliff divers were from.
I always watched those as a kid. Honestly, I was amazed that they didn't just crash into the rocks on the way down.

Re: Tuesday, March 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Also, you can see an earthrise from the moon's surface, but it would be a very long event and not like anything you'd experience from orbit. I'm curious, how? While the moon is tidally locked with the Earth, it does 'wiggle' a bit as it orbits, so if you're near the very edge of where you could see...

Re: Tuesday, March 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As proven above, I've seen Carrara before, but it certainly never stuck (and quite honestly if this were asked again in a year, I'll still miss it). I couldn't come up with any cities with 3 "A"s in it. I'm curious to see how people did in that Song category. I usually hold my own, but I got only $1...

Re: Reretaken Down

So, I was watching Bull last night and one of the characters mentioned that Drew Brees had just retired. So, either a) they were banking on that happening and it just worked out or b) that was some massively quick ADR work as he had just retired the day before (the speaker had a mask on, so it's pre...

I have always heard it as HBCU. That was a tough category. Fordham was my only miss.
Grambling State is a university, so you don't need the 'C' in this case.

Guessed Jackson for Cleveland. Guessed Stalingrad and knew Rainer (easiest of the 12 for me after Modern Family).
Also had Jackson and Stalingrad.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I thought the Midseason Classic was exceptionally difficult. Usually I know at least half of them on my first read through and then come up with a couple more later. This time I only knew four, and that's all I ended up getting. Yikes. Agreed! I had 4 as well (Modern Family -- only thanks to the co...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I guess I have to call that an easy week, since I only missed 3 questions. And I should have gotten 2 of them. Be afraid of next week. It seems like the difficulty level between match days has been all over the map this season. I only missed two questions this week and still went 1-0-4 (4 ties). Ki...

Re: Friday, March 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thank you Katie for the detailed explanation at the reveal. At least I know that my total made up WAG of Chickamonga was cromulent. I'm sure the writers provided the intel, but we've been left in the dark before by AT many times. This FJ was ungettable to me, if I finally remember Antietam, it does...

I'm with the camp that would accept an answer without Le. I can't imagine them rejecting "Plain Dealer" or "Times-Picayune" as newspaper names even with a missing article. I have no idea if this information will ever be useful to anyone anywhere but New York and London include the definite article ...

Figured FJ was either Manassas or Antietam. Went with Manassas because I thought it sounded more like an Indian name to me, although I was worried since it was also known under an English name as well.
Antietam is as well (Sharpsburg).

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I was impressed that many people got it right; that's one of my favorite movies and it took me some time to suss that one out. For some reason, that was the first thing that jumped to my mind. I think there was an FJ in December-ish that talked about the airline logo? Maybe that's why it came to me...
