how funny it was to get rickrolled at the end of your elaborate diversionary tactic
Ahem... it was someone else singing Rick's hit.
Yes, the execrable Barry Manilow just to rub it in a little deeper! We don't even deserve to be punked with the real deal!! Brilliant! :twisted:

If you will remember correctly, at the end of the very first aural in TD 2xx, the last question, the Michael Jackson aural, ended with a four-second Rickroll.
My philosophy: We watch for the game. Players who get in the way of the game intrude, whether they're arrogant or adlib or cackle or fidget or make noise or are rude to AT. We want those who just play the game and don't make it about themselves to win.

I'd have high-fived you then if I knew it. I skipped several aural questions because of my mute computer at work. Joke intended or not, (like the I. Beat it "coincidence"), thank you for the witty and clever brain candy. It's a win for me if nobody gets dumber from my posts ;) .

Thanks a lot for putting these on!

In a related note, I will now forever rue that Hallmark doesn't make President's Day cards.

Thank you floridagator for such a tremendous series of games. I know how long it took me to work on my answers for each set, so I can only imagine the dedication it took to write each game with the variety of media used. And for you to have started and finished it in only a matter of months is amazing.

I'm 54 and had options for all of the audio questions making the music portions some of my favorites. It was too bad the participation level went down although I'm glad to see a lot of us stuck through it to play all of the rounds.

Congrats to the top finishers and doing so well in such a lengthy endeavor.

The band Manchester Orchestra’s latest album included a track titled “Lead, SD.” I’m a big fan, so I couldn’t resist passing on a big sheep for it. (Fortunately so, since the guy with the slick-back hair and pencil mustache was not The Simpsons’ “YES!” Guy.)

Thanks for posting the Manchester Orchestra song. I've been enjoying it.
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.
