WRONG (+10)
---------------
Woof (Las Vegas Raiders) - Poll: Should I allow this? Wikipedia still redirects to Oakland, and as far as I know, the franchise has not yet officially moved (so it doesn't currently exist in Las Vegas
You should take a look at https://raiders.com and see how many times the word Oakland appears there. :D
After review, the ruling on the field stands, for 3 reasons.

You can't currently buy licensed Las Vegas Raiders gear, as the NFL is not allowing it - "there is no Las Vegas merchandise because, per NFL rules, the team is still linked to Oakland."

https://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/ra ... gh-demand/

Secondly, the Raiders still have an option for staying in Oakland in 2020 if construction on the new stadium in Las Vegas is delayed (though it's scheduled to open this coming summer, in time for next season). The Raiders have not had a practice or held a team function, let alone play a game, as the Las Vegas Raiders. There is not even a guarantee that the Raiders will play a game in Las Vegas next season.

Finally, the ongoing 2019-2020 season has not ended, and they were certainly the Oakland Raiders during this season.
I was watching something on the NFL Network and they had a crawl with the current draft order rolling. First, of course, is the Cincinnati Bengals, second goes to the Washington Redskins. When it gets to twelfth, it just shows "Raiders". :)

Re: TD 437 - 2019 in Review (Q10 revealed)

Post by SenseiCAY » Tue Jan 21, 2020 10:53 am

Hope everyone had a good weekend. I went to LA for the first time since my taping, and played Ultimate Frisbee on the beach all weekend, so that was cool. At any rate, here's Q10.

Q10. Letter and month required. As usual, I've tried to fit everything that happened in the past year into 9 questions, and as usual, I've failed. Below is a comprehensive list of everything else that happened in 2019 that I wasn't able to get to. Select a letter and give the month in which the corresponding events occurred in 2019.
  1. Bolivian President Evo Morales resigns. Michael Bloomberg announces his candidacy for President of the United States. Thirteen witnesses testify publicly as part of an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
  2. The United States defeats the Netherlands in the Women's World Cup finals. A blackout darkens parts of Manhattan in New York City. Donald Trump has a phone conversation that would ultimately lead to his impeachment, asking the Ukranian President to investigate Hunter Biden.
  3. Juan Guaido swears himself in as President of Venezuela. A 35-day partial government shutdown over funding for a border wall ends. A total lunar eclipse, dubbed the "super blood wolf moon" is visible in the Americas.
  4. Julian Assange is arrested in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Katie Bouman and her team of scientists at the Event Horizon Telescope project release the first photograph of the event horizon of a black hole. Tiger Woods wins the Masters.
  5. The Nobel Prizes in peace, physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and economics are awarded (as usual, several months after their respective announcements) in a ceremony in Stockholm. The Conservative Party wins a majority in the British House of Commons, likely paving the way for Brexit to occur. Andy Beshear is sworn in as the Governor of Kentucky after a high-profile election.
  6. The Raptors defeat the Warriors to win the NBA title. Rafael Nadal wins his 12th French Open title. The St. Louis Blues defeat the Boston Bruins to win the Stanley Cup.
  7. Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman are arrested at Dulles International Airport. Eilud Kipchoge becomes the first person to complete a marathon in under two hours, though his accomplishment did not count as a world record due to the manufactured conditions under which he ran. Christina Koch and Jessica Meir perform the first all-female spacewalk.
  8. Emperor Naruhito becomes the 126th Emperor of Japan, ushering in the Reiwa Era. Archie Mountbatten-Windsor is born. "Parasite" wins the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.
  9. Jeffrey Epstein is found dead in his jail cell. The Impossible Whopper begins sales nationwide after being tested in select markets for several months. Disney becomes the first studio to release five films making over $1 billion at the box office in a single year when Toy Story 4 crosses the threshold.
  10. Boy Scouts of America changes its name to Scouts BSA, as it allows girls to officially join for the first time. Donald Trump holds a two-day summit meeting with North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-Un in Hanoi. A prostitution sting in Florida ensnares, among others, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
  11. Alex Trebek announces his diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Operation Varsity Blues reveals charges against over 50 people, including Felicity Huffman and Lori Laughlin, for their roles in a bribery scandal over college admissions. Mike Trout signs a record 12-year $430 million contract extension with the Los Angeles Angels.
  12. Hurricane Dorian makes landfall, but does not significantly affect Alabama. A special election is held to determine the representative from North Carolina's 9th congressional district after evidence of election fraud by the Republican party cause the initial election to be invalidated. "Fleabag" and "Game of Thrones" respectively win Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Drama Series at the 71st Primetime Emmy Awards.

Gee, I wonder which part of those three was helpful to me to know the month? :D

  • San Francisco Giants' 3 World Series wins
  • State high-school basketball championship for my fave team, The Campolindo Cougars of Moraga, CA :)
  • Chicago Cubs win the 2016 World Series
I will put myself in the camp of the last one there, along with getting married and appearing on Jeopardy.

This may be a bit belated, but thanks for a terrific game! (All these years playing these and I barely make the podium a few times, and now I’ve won two in the past month! Crazy ... :o) Congrats to the rest of the podium! :)

Oof...one week late.

I asked a few friends this question (and posted it on my Facebook wall for debate). Two of them sent me a press release for this within a few minutes of it coming out.

With all that said, I did learn a lesson on this one - I should define stuff like "currently exists" a little better. If I had a do-over, I would have explicitly said that the teams must have played a game at their current location with their current name.

While that certainly would have made the issue unambiguous, I don't mind some gray areas in the questions. After all, this is Think Different :mrgreen:
