A Midland with troydozzy, along with my referrer, who I played against on air last year. Look forward to practicing the virtue of humility multiple times this season.

As indicated by my rookie finish in LL75, I'll be in D Summit Div2, as well as the Rundle in the Jundle. Let's see if my consistent string of trivial mediocrity continues for another season! :lol:

I'm in Division 1 of Sugarloaf Rundle R.

Rookie question: How early in the morning can I submit? A day after a federal holiday can easily mean a 15-16 hour workday at the post office and I have no idea when I'll get home Tuesday.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

On Monday (or the first day of a LL week, such as this Tuesday): midnight Central, or whatever that works out to in your time zone.

Later days in the week: my experience has been that the previous day's results are usually available between 1 AM and 2 AM central, at which point the next day's questions become available.

Good luck, and enjoy!

Back in B Prairie for another go-round at staving off relegation and maintaining mediocrity. See you on MD15, BarrettM! My brother got moved to A and moved to Elysium, so I won't be able to tie him for the 3rd straight season. I'll miss the sibling rivalry.

You can play Day 1 right now if you want to. You can play up to ten games a season in advance.

Click on Thorsten’s Desk and look for Advance Access.

Glad I could help.

Since this was your first day, I just wanted to let you and anyone else know that any discussion whatsoever about the questions is forbidden on here until the results are posted on the LL site.

This includes saying things like “they were hard” or “I got four right”.

After playing some really shoddy defense, I'm back in Bayou E (Div 1). Let's see if I can bounce back.
Won some of Ben Stein's money. None of Alex Trebek's, and maybe some of Chris Harrison's?

I just missed promotion to Continental A last season, but ultimately didn't make it. Now I find myself bumped up to Taiga A, which is weird
One of my other referrals asked if we could move to Taiga, so I asked Thorsten if my branch (I have my own branch! That's so weird) could move there. Welcome to A Taiga!

You asked? I thought you all had moved just because Thorsten, on his own, had the sense of humor to move you in response to your referral's posts in the thread for the new league name poll...

I’m in B *squints* Taiga? Where my Pacific dogs at?
I eat chicken. That's what I do.

This will be my first LL season (R Taiga Div 2) and I'm really psyched to participate. Thanks to fellow boardie Matt Knowles for generously extending an invite!
I would prefer not to.

First time in A after 15 prior seasons below (Summit). Get to face off against my MMama and 2 Crias for the first time in a long time!

I *may* have woken up this morning in a panic that I'd somehow missed questions from the night before, then gotten disappointed to wait another day.

Nothing is better for my morning wake-up times than being in LL season and getting up to check results!

I did. I just thought it would be a nice thing to do.
