Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

I gave him a 7. He seemed to get better as he went on. My biggest problem for me was he seemed to go overboard in kissing everyone’s butt. The players are supersmart. (Dude, you’re a heart surgeon and a Harvard grad. You have been around smart people before). The staff is wonderful. Alex was a wonde...

Today I learned that Angel Falls were named after a person. Isn't learning fun?
Same here. I never really thought about it but would have assumed it had some sort of religious connection. I got it right but it was one of those “put something down” things that paid off.

I don’t do Reddit, but I read about this elsewhere so I looked it up. Emily was apparently not a fan of Dr. Oz hosting her games.

...Kevin had to cover Emily. For some value of "had to". Kevin could also have decided that it was more likely that there would be a hard FJ! that they all would miss than that there would be a FJ! that he would get and Bryce would miss. Temperamentally, most people seem to view it the way you desc...

Just wow to Jean not even guessing to prevent a lock game, then throwing away a grand unnecessarily on top of that.
If she gets the last $2000 clue it still doesn’t break the lock.

Said Edwin Booth. Well, that's also a correct response... wonder how it would have been judged on the show. Ready to get ultra nitpicky? The letter was sent in 1835. Edwin was born in 1833, and John Wilkes was born in 1838. So at the time of the letter, he was a current father of Edwin and a future...

Re: Reretaken Down

I lived in Birmingham at the time of the Shoal Creek controversy. This was in 1990. The PGA championship was scheduled to be held at Shoal Creek Golf and County Club. It came to light the club had no black members and the SCLC threatened to protest. It didn’t help the club president made some tone d...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I had new records for myself in TCA and TMP with 74 and 102 to take fourth in D1 Serengeti. First person out on promotion. Probably for the best as my numbers would have been near the bottom in C1. Staying promoted seems easier than getting promoted. Congratulations to those at the top of A who qual...

Between Amal's pauses and 11 triple stumpers, I was amazed they got through all 60 clues.

Got locked onto Jules Verne and made a bad FJ guess of Journey to the Center of the Earth.
They could have saved time if needed by editing every time he rang in.
