Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I also said alligator, as I'm sure many did. Otherwise, what was "save the alligator, eat a preppie" about? Surprisingly, only 10% said alligator. Would have thought that would be higher. Me, too, considering 49% said crocodile. Heck, questions about current tennis players tend to play tough, I'm n...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I managed a win yesterday, but damn René Lacoste and his "alligator shirts" which are actually (apparently) "crocodile shirts."

Re: DD maximums

I'm sure they go over it beforehand, but the guest hosts really need to be mentioning that. Do they? Does every game need the rules explained for viewers every time? NFL matches would -never- begin... Who's talking about the viewers? I'm talking about the host stating it to the person making the wa...

Marion Berry

We can only hope for an FJ about Marion Barry now and hope someone spells it "Berry." They've already set the odd precedent that "Barry" and "Berry" are different names. :roll:

For FJ I spent the entire time thinking it must have something to do with Neil Armstrong and never even considered Buzz Aldrin. Oops...
Never having seen any of the Toy Story movies certainly didn't help my chances.

I'm pretty well ensconced in the middle of my rundle (sitting at 15th currently). With three days left it's going to be a very average season for me.

I wonder if they would have taken "Jackie O"?
It's a better answer than 'Jackie Kennedy'.
As far as correctness goes, it's an identical answer (just like Jackie Bouvier).
Agreed. She went by all three at times over the course of her lifetime, so they're all fine.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I'm floored that somehow more people knew the words for right and left (hand) in Latin than knew either Diesel or Death in Venice. I'm not floored, but I am surprised at the relatively low get rate for diesel. I didn't connect re "Death in Venice" ... at least I had the right country (Rome) 🤪 Well,...

I just went to the LL page to remind myself of the questions and there’s a notice in a red box that I may have submitted my answers too late although it lists my submission time (correctly!) as 10:28pm EST. I hope it’s just a glitch as I got either all 6 correct or 5/6 if baking soda isn’t similar ...

Ditto, so I didn't check the box. I remember the Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevenson TV adaption from the '70s, but that's as far as my Hardy Boys knowledge extends.

Still, she never inserted incorrect information/corrections as far as I saw (cough, cough, Rodgers!).
When did Rodgers do that?

I spotted a "classic" (In other words appalling) closed caption. The Honololu "gem" is Diamond Ted.
"Teddy Ballgame" and "The Splendid Splinter" are already taken by Ted Williams, so we'll need to use this nickname for some other baseball playing Ted. Maybe Ted Simmons.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

I thought she did a good job, but I did prefer others (Ken, Buzzy...). That said, after decades and decades of male hosts on both J! and Wheel I think it's time for a female.

I assume Hendrix was just a “something is better than nothing” guess as he is pretty famously associated with Seattle.
I have a feeling you're vastly overestimating how many people know Jimi grew up in Seattle.

What the heck was supposed to help you to get to Sopranos? I looked it up after the fact, and the only character name in the titles is someone who never appears and is never mentioned again. Apparently, there are well known Pine Barrens here in NJ (I'm right near the areas represented on the show) ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

See, that's just it .. I guess I'm more used to J! questions; they've certainly done episode titles as a category before and usually there's at least something. This just felt way too thin in terms of leading hints. Given minimal effort, I'm sure I could name off six to ten shows where "Italian sou...
