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...

I had Christie on FJ. I did say Augusta National for the golf course as that is always how I hear it referred to.

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...

Re: Friday, March 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The states thing did make me think. I wasn’t sure when Vermont and Kentucky joined. Just how many did we have in 1790? But I decided to apply the KISS policy and got it right. And is distance to the sun that obscure? Bottom row today and one a million dollar question from Regis. I went with the obv...

No clue on FJ. Wrote down Yosemite Sam as a joke. :lol:

One more week of Oz. He isn’t horrible but isn’t exciting for me. We’ll see how it goes next week.

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.

I started trying to think of an Italian set book but got nowhere. Considered both responses but picked the wrong one.

The lunch break did Oz well as he seemed more relaxed.

Never been to an IKEA store and never had a desire to do so. Don't like Swedish meatballs? The stores can be fun even if you're not planning to buy any of the assemble-it-yourself furniture. I'd have to drive 80 miles to get to one, so I too shall pass. The closest one to me is in Atlanta, which is...

Closing in on 7000 in the archive. If a few more old games pop up in the next couple weeks Aaron Rodgers could be hosting that one.
