Apologies to tjconn728, for whom it wasn't yesterday. Unfortunately he ran into three geography questions, one about my son's favorite reading material, and one about British TV (which he wisely zeroed). I missed the one about the OJ trial though. (I claim that Lance would be a great name for a dog.)
I was flipping between Lance and Kato.
Also Foghorn and Leghorn.

One of those landed on the right side. (Kato)
Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.

I say, I say that's a joke, son!

I thought of Lance and it seemed so right I never even thought of Kato. Kato does seem like a better name for an Akita, I must admit. My wife was embarrassed I missed that one. She know everything about the OJ trial.
Kato never occurred to me, but I thought Bronco would be a reasonable name for a dog...

I guessed Chennai because I know it's one of the cities that changed names but I don't really know where any of the cities in India actually are.

Guessed Antigua and Barbuda, just because. Did get Leghorn and Pop Idol.

No one yet has come up with the best OJ trial-related dog name: Fur-man.

When I first read the Mumbai clue, I thought "What . . . the . . . hell?" and resigned myself to missing it. Then I figured out the TOM. I was pretty sure "Marathi" was Indian, though whether that was actual knowledge or just a reasonable guess from the orthography, I'm still not sure. And "islands" means a coastal city. So we're looking for a coastal Indian city that was renamed 20 years ago. That seemed a lot more reasonable! I think Thorsten writes some pretty fantastic clues.

Rex
Agreed. Had I more carefully considered the TOM in this neatly packaged clue I would've come up with Mumbai(Bombay) rather than the weak guess 'Macau' which I knew was wrong when I wrote it. Bah! :roll:

1. In general, is Thorsten generous when grading song titles?
2. On Friday's Q6, do you all think that My Bonnie have been accepted?
3. On Friday's Q6, do you all think that My Bonnie (Lies Over the Ocean) would have been accepted?

I did really well on Friday (well, for me. Not for you folks over in A Rundle.) Still lost, though, 7(5) - 6(4). My opponent and I assigned vastly different defense, which I found interesting.

I was surprised by the low get rate on Aluminum - I thought it was one of the easiest questions of the day, although I did nearly have an RTFQ moment. I was also surprised that my opponent gave me 0 for My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean, even though I knew it, because a lot of people can't sight sing. (Also, Auld Lang Syne as the MCW? Were people just naming a Scottish folk song?)

I got the CFL question because of Twitter. Thank you, Twitter.

My Bonnie is the song I used to sing to my daughter when changing her (complete with moving close and far during the 'bring back' part) so I knew this one cold after struggling through the sight singing. However the extra few days of waiting to see if My Bonnie alone would be counted were agonizing.

I also saw the language question and said:"Persian or Iranian, I'll answer Iranian". That one wasn't counted as correct.

Shout out to GoldRF who has 27 correct answers against in B Hor... Yuck.

No BWA for Toronto Barenaked Ladies? I hope that's only because too many people had the same idea.

I did not intentionally tank a certain zero-pointer; I really did have an incredible brain fart: "let's see, AL is not an element, on to AR..." :shock: :o :? :shock

P.S. I probably had a shutdown of the brain center for things that begin with AL. I do in fact know of Montreal Alouettes (even if only because of all the jokes about the CFL).

Of course not. It's kinda funny. Hence Thorsten wouldn't like it.

It's too bad I can't sight-read. That song was in one of my favorite old computer games (Outlaws), so I would've gotten it.
Got my first three-pointer, though, tying me with Shaq on the all-time list. The really bizarre thing is that none of my opponents have forfeited, yet I've only allowed six points all season! I must've had the easiest first week schedule of, well, anyone.
Hoping for a third lap

I have a rare advantage (that maybe I shouldn't disclose) that while my classical music scores are very low, I played music for many, many years. So I can't necessarily pull the names of symphonies, but any sight-reading or questions about notations are gimmes. So I got a 3 for that question and that put me over the top.

I don't play an instrument and I can't sing, but this was the first sight-reading question I missed... and that's because I've never heard of that song. Yep, go on, hit me on the head with a ten pound hammer!

I'm guessing Scottish folk songs weren't part of the average Croatian kid's life, I give you a pass.

I am reminded of a joke where the teacher asks little Billy to come up with a song using the words "analyze" and "anatomy". The result?

My analyze over the ocean
My analyze over the sea
My analyze over the ocean
Oh bring back my anatomy.

7(5) for Friday...that was a nice way to end the week. The sight-reading question was great for me (though I did have trouble deciding on the right way to put the title, and was thankful that my choice of "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean" was exactly what Thorsten put down). I had Farsi for Q2, that was a bit of a WAG. (My second choice was Arabic, so I'm thankful I stuck with my first option.) Went with Toronto Raptors for Q4...well, at least it's a Canadian sports team... :P

(Also, I finally seem to be improving on defense. 3(3) for my opponent...I usually allow WAY more points than that. Then again, I only have a week of experience under my belt.)
