Re: For the LLamas Among Us

I have listened to all of Serial , but I had never before seen Sarah Koenig. I guessed Terry Gross, another NPRnik whom I had never seen. I also never knew that Cedar Point was on an actual point in a body of water. People have boats on Lake Erie?! For the three nice weekends per year? (Incidentall...

Re: TD 251: Midsummer Classic- [Through 5 innings]

Either way it's a tough call. I, myself, had informed Boardies of the name change back in TD175 (http://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1754&start=100#p97053), so it's really nklotz's fault for not having been around back then or going through all the archives. ;) Out of the two Brittany responses I r...

WRONG ANSWERS - 13 runs BRITTANY SPANIEL (Name not exact) nklotz Really? Don't we usually go by the J! standard rule of spelling that it's correct if it doesn't change the pronunciation? I think the issue is that you added "Spaniel" to the end. Apparently, the AKC dropped it from the official breed...

Re: TD 251: Midsummer Classic-Top of the 1st Completed

I'm not sure it would have changed any of my answers, but I was under the impression that answers for the top and bottom of the inning would be grouped together for scoring purposes. The directions don't say one way or the other, but I think a TD within the past year used a split scoring like this, ...

Re: LL65 (For the LLamas amongst us)

I was never much into Miles Davis (I have Kind of Blue but don't listen to it much). The only albums I knew of his are Kind of Blue , Sketches of Spain , and Bitches Brew . The only jazz-type song I knew with "birth" in the title was "Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like That)" from the 90s, so I put down "...

Took a WAG on New Yorker and got the 3! I don't quite get that. How did over half the people get this? Why would The New Yorker be the go-to answer? I got it from having read In Cold Blood a few years ago, and the prologue included information about how it had first appeared in The New Yorker . I w...

I managed to pull out "petiole" yesterday. Actually I wrote "pediole" so I was very happy to get credit. I knew I had heard the term before, but it took me quite a while to pull it from the memory vault. Always nice to get one that ended up being so difficult overall. Did anyone else do what I did,...

Re: I know we've got a few folks on here from Baltimore

Dyson, I'm sure (or at least I hope) you didn't mean to imply that last night's events could have been anticipated or that the criminals that took to the street last night are typical of Baltimore, but I can't help to read it that way. And I'm sure Baltimore's reputation is going to take a hit in th...
