Please don't talk about anything relating to a live match day until the scores have been released. I haven't played yet and I don't want any hints as to anything about today's questions. I'm sure many others are in the same position. Thank you.

Hmmm. It seems we aren't allowed to talk about...basically anything. Apologies. No intention to offend.

I don't think you said anything out of order.

Some people get LL mixed up with Fight Club. It's a whole thing. There's soap involved.

To be clear, no discussion of active questions is allowed. You can’t say how many you got right or if you thought they were hard or easy. Once results are posted on the LL site, you can post here about them.

Good luck everyone! My MD1 opponent is FrankJ. Seems like he's had my number the last few seasons, so we'll see...

If you’re who I think you are, you got 117 TCA last season, getting a higher percentage of the questions than all but 7 A Rundles. You’re being too hard on yourself.

Another rookie here (thanks to our mutual friend TFB) and anticipating an interesting season. Just finished my first submission and looking forward to the discussions to come.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

BigDaddyMatty on MD1. Yikes.
(Although I tied BlishS on MD1 a couple years ago, so anything's possible.)

*shakes fist* Coachella!!

...I thought it was a science question, like, monarch butterflies or something. And let's be honest, even if I -did- research that FJ fully, I still wouldn't mentally rate a music festival as 'most notably' :lol:

My first loss due to defense in over a season...auspicious.

I got the FJ quickly, missed this one.

I think if I bothered to "do the math" of the three years, it would've led me to thinking about a COVID related cancellation, and I went the butterfly route while wondering why they didn't show up for three years.

lol I had monarchs down, but then keyed in on the specific date and got to pandemic shutdowns – and with that, locked in my first 9(6) on MD1 in 22 seasons!

I figured ennui would play hard, but then I noticed it had to rhyme with sea - gave it a 3 and my opponent did indeed get it, only missing Grenada (seriously?)

I got the rhyme trick, but best I could come up with was 'glee'
