Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I also had no idea that Guns N' Roses was (kind of) named for a person. I had tickets to see them in concert last year before covid hit. GNR was formed by two bands who were both scheduled to play at the same club on the same night, but half of each band didn’t show up, so they combined to form GNR...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Acclaimed American actor and singer Paul Robeson, whose international fame was established via his performance of "Ol' Man River" in Show Boat, was also closely identified with what Shakespeare character, whom he portrayed in London (1930) and on Broadway (1943)? Is there a TOM I am missing here tha...

Re: Monday, June 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well she was either going to be 90 feet or 127 feet off...Kosman Koin

I also quickly wrote Manifest Destiny, knew it was wrong and spent about 33 seconds (or 3 seconds too many) trying to come up with "the name of that other thing" before Monroe Doctrine hit me.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

Pretty bad. Constant off screen giggling was weird & she is not attractive. Plus she has some big pharma ads running which adds to the overkill. She was okay on BBT but enough is enough. Please tell me more about how the host gets to choose what ads run during the show on each and every station acr...

In any case, surely production of her sitcom will interfere with her being a permanent host.
How so? Schedules can be changed on both sides if necessary.

As much as my wife and I love mob movies and shows, neither one of us could get interested in this one. I tried a few times but it just never got me hooked.

Re: Proposed Megatournament Structure

Maybe in another 10 or 15 years, with no players from the Trebek era, sure; otherwise, I'll pass at seeing yet another convoluted setup to see the nearly same result we've seen several times.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I never expected to say this as a Ken fan and skeptic of many of the TV personalities, but Mayim Bialik is crushing it. I would be completely happy if she were the permanent host. Acting experience goes a long way for hosting, apparently. I was impressed from the first half of the first round of th...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I am surprised at the leaguewide get rates on some of yesterday's questions. I would have expected Galapagos to play easy and Rhinoceros to play a little tough, but not to the levels that they did. The Pirsig book also did not ring a bell for me at all, but apparently that was something that I shou...

Re: Reretaken Down

The clue in question appeared before the 2012 Disney acquisition and subsequent removal of novelized canon. The clue was technically correct at the time per Golf’s post but is technically wrong today as per Brigadier’s post. I see no reason to add anything to the archive and I would just leave it t...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I'm curious what others guessed for the station wagon question. I put limousine. Same Went with hearse over limousine. What led to station wagon? Is there a specific cultural reference I’m missing? I don't know about culture, but "estate" is almost the same word as "station" and "car" has almost th...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

On vacation this week and off my routines. Looked at the questions at night and couldn’t think straight.

I know damn well estate car is station wagon, but couldn’t think of it and went with hearse knowing it didn’t seem right.

Lost because of it.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Mike Richards is executive producer of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! , and I'm sure Sony won't accept the disruption of Wheel that would occur if Richards took on extra J! duties. So, however he performed, he would be too risky to another valuable Sony property. Not going to get the permanent gig....

My random draw luck continues...that’s about when I took it. Possibly still feels better than my random draw extreme luck (have gotten an audition all 3 times I've taken the test now), but continued failure to be appealing at an audition I guess? :lol: If I had that, at least I could maybe do somet...

If I had that, at least I could maybe do something to change my outcome, not winning a random drawing is nothing I can do. Very true. I got to the final round of The Chase auditions too a few months back and hoping that I have perhaps learned something from there also to maybe change the outcome th...

Helio Castroneves becomes the fourth four time winner of the Indy 500.
At 46 he's kinda like the Tom Brady of auto racing.
The only championship Helio has is last year in IMSA
