Re: Friday, February 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another shout-out for a savvy FJ wager from the champ. This was a hard-fought round. It looked as if Sayed had trouble ringing in against the other two but that baseball run got him back into the game. I was surprised that something as basic as the XYZ Affair was a TS.

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Casting for season 2 is available here: https://www.thechasecasting.com/ . I signed up and immediately received an invitation to schedule a 50 question proctored Zoom quiz (scheduled for early March). I'll report back with my experience! I'm scheduled for March, as well. Good luck! I as well! Me th...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I knew precisely the region he was referring to, and confidently said Calabria (calor = heat). Oops. Technically correct, but not fitting the rest of the clue.

Re: When can we expect the next round of testing?

So has there been an official announcement to the effect that the Anytime Test has replaced annual testing?

Re: Thursday, February 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My FJ streak comes to a screeching halt. Silver made me think of Nevada which got me precisely nowhere. Never made the silver-gold connection to get to Bryan. Most perceptive comment of the night courtesy of my son: “She [Leah] is guessing too much”

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

In my rookie season (LL63), there were 11 leagues and so many rookie rundles that the league grew from around 2,200 to 2,800. I think that's still the largest percentage growth from one LL season to the next, except maybe one of the first few seasons. But the growth has been really impressive all t...

Re: Monday, February 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The good old days, when you got 13 stations on TV and a lot of the kids you went to school with were jealous, because they got three or fewer on an antenna. That's how one of my former bosses started one of the first cable television systems. His family's store sold TV's in Pottsville in rural Penn...

Re: Annual Penguin Hiatus

Hmmm.... I’d have thought that 2020-2021 was Lenten enough, but you do you. I did have a recent chuckle in an Online Quiz League match at question that began “What animal, of family Spheniscidae, is the mascot for the Linux OS?” It wasn’t my question but I’d have responded “you had me at Spheniscida...

Subarus on parade, to take a cue from AP. Yes, I said to my family re that DD3 wager “if she doesn’t go all in she isn’t interested in winning.” FJ was to me a Pavlovian clue: playwright + Pittsburgh? One answer.

Re: Friday, February 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a combined Coryat tonight! That almost TOC-like. My son and I looked at each other on FJ, both knowing who it referred to. I finally got past Epimenides to Diogenes (“that guy with the lantern”) but who knows whether I’d have managed to write it down before the end of Think Time.

I really enjoyed his games. It is so tragic that he died so young, and his Jeopardy experience is the least of it. RIP Brayden.

Girlfriend watches Bob therefore I've seen enough of it to nail it. But I'm thinking Nicklaus' grip has a better chance of tripping up LSV, as well as almost everybody. Funny, we had a discussion some months ago about whether baseball grip should have been accepted for a golf grip where the correct...

Having lived through Reagan’s two gubernatorial terms, I was not going to miss that question, but a voice in my head did raise the question of the SAG elections even as I answered. I also liked this FJ. It gave you just enough information to reason it out.

Working as I do at an institution that has a Brian Lamb School of Communications, it would have been bad had I missed FJ... fortunately i didn’t.

And the Indra and the Kaiserkeller. I was another who got FJ based on the Greco-Roman hint. Pluto is another possibility, but was only an epithet of Hades.

I thought maybe I'd trade you wastes of time, but from the wiki description this seems a bit new-agey and not my idea of a good science read. For riveting story telling, Isaac Asimov's non-fiction science books are awesome. I still remember much of "The Noble Gases" from high school. I think they w...

Re: Monday, February 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting round today with a very low combined Coryat. It didn’t seem like such a poorly-played game but maybe there were more TSs than I recall. Negged hard with synonym for homonym but otherwise these were good boards for me (my 16 yo son ran Video Games, sparing me the ignominy of going 0-for5)...

And yet Zach kept going back to BIOGRAPHIES after the first DD was revealed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Frida and Trotsky? Who knew! I had no idea so I said Kandinsky I had never heard that before, but I read the cl...
