Khalilah certainly brought some entertainment to an otherwise pretty ugly day!

Re: Wednesday, March 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I keep trying to come up with 8 and my brain fogs over. I know no ketchup, and probably no mayo either. Which leaves mustard, relish, onions, chili, maybe bell peppers, and then my imagination just runs out of gas. Anyone have any clues? Sport peppers not chili peppers. Don't think they use bell pe...

Re: Learned League 84

My season ended with a whimper, losing the last three days. Still ended up sixth in A Fjord mostly due to good defense (.788 DE).

...Fawlty Towers in the '70s? Monty Python would've been a better guess. :shock: ... ?? Fawlty Towers was aired first-run from 1975-1979. It's true I suppose, MP would have been more likely to have an audience advisory... but I'm not sure what "concerns" either Cleese show ever addressed. The sale ...

Can we agree that the peacock clue was horribly misplaced, at least?
Definitely. I think they should have included the word "proud" in there to describe the bird and that would have provided the necessary TOM.

Re: Learned League 84

We've got a barn burner going on in Fjord A for the third spot. Right now third place has 28 points, but two of us are sitting at 27 (one of them being me), and one at 26 (FrankJ) and one just behind him at 25. Took a tough loss yesterday 4(4)-6(4) the differentiator being Mahfouz which I assigned t...

I had "Allende" but couldn't pull the first name in time. Judges? Do I need a first name to distinguish her from her father, even though he wasn't a writer? He also isn't likely to come up on Jeopardy! His name was Tomás Allende. Salvador Allende was her godfather and cousin once removed. Isabel is...

I think Aaron got the trifecta for the "al fresca" response, which was negged for being wrong on 3 levels - that's gotta be an achievement! 1) wrong language = wrong answer 2) wrong vowel ending 3) not in form of question. Tough day, didn't seem to be nerves, it just goes that some days you get the...

The whole Mandela thing is that when he died, there were a bunch of people thought he had died in prison years earlier.

Which is really stupid. His release and subsequent election as president were big news.
I think these people might be confusing Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko.

After seeing the FJ category my precall was the Bataan Death March and then I whiffed on the actual question. :oops:

I totally missed the Midseason Classic. Just looked at the questions and I would have done quite poorly, anyway.

"What major city is Northwestern University associated with?" is a strange choice for a DD, but whatevs.
I agree. That one had me wondering if there was a catch/twist that I was missing.
To be fair Northwestern's main campus is in Evanston, so I could imagine someone negging with that.

Re: Learned League 84

Thanks to the Current Events thread, I had Ghosn and Nissan on a flashcard. Unfortunately for me, I didn't bother to also put Renault, so I missed that. It would have taken one second to add that to the card, too. Bah. Yeah, I associated him with Nissan. Had no idea before yesterday that he was act...

It's worth knowing that the ten largest U.S. states are all west of the Mississippi. The largest state east of the Mississippi is Michigan, at #11 Indeed.

For FJ I put "Importance of Being Ernest." I knew there was some word play involving the name Ernest and the word "earnest" but couldn't remember which one was in the actual title. Funny play. Read it in HS.

Re: Learned League 84

I managed a six-pack yesterday, played perfect defense, and still managed to fall from third to fourth in my rundle rankings! That was a bit of a kick in the teeth.
