Re: Thursday, November 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I know it was innocent, but why wasn't that first DD wager changed in post-production? Even though only a couple numbers are prohibited, it's still possible to get those numbers during the show, and as a result of that wrong answer, we got two of them.

Re: LL83: Learned League

Achievement Unlocked: 50 Losses in A, B, and C I'm actually at 51 now. 12 more wins in A and I'll have an achievement to be proud of. I imagine fewer than 2% of LLamas have 50+ wins (or losses) at three different levels. I've had a few Buckner ties but those don't count. Personal Records shows 433 m...

Re: Thursday, November 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I gave myself credit for "obtuse triangle." It starts with O and has no right angles, and it's a real term. A rare episode where I went 0/4 on the big clues, but a $33,800 Coryat and 40 R sort of made up for it. Tomorrow, all three contestants will be LLamas (a rarity), but it gets stranger... two w...

Re: Friday, November 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Great finish! All three deserved to be in the finals. Is this the first time in a TOC finals that the qualifier who played the most games faced two qualifiers who played the fewest? I had my worst game in ages; "Before, During, and After" ate me alive. But I did go 7/10 on FJ's this tournament, comp...

Was this taped at the Jeopardy studio or the Bonneville Salt Flats? All I kept hearing was vroom vroom ! Not just from one contestant, but all three, although the Bugatti sustained it longer. Who else sang "ThunderBALLLL" in their living room and held that note until they fainted? A possibly unbreak...

How was that Final a TS?! I thought one person might miss with Seventh Day Adventist, but I could never have expected all three of them would give the same incorrect response. "On the seventh day, He rested"... right? Pentecostalism isn't obscure; you've all seen Assembly of God churches, right? Tha...

Re: Reretaken Down

Well, there go the Nationals' chances of ever moving back to Montreal. If the Expos do return, they should pick up where they left off (and make the Nationals a distinct team that started in 2005). Kind of like how the Ravens, who had originally inherited the Browns' history, gave it up once the Bro...

Leadville is an amazing city... um, town. It even has an opera house where perennial Jeopardy favorite Oscar Wilde performed! I stayed there (in the former governor's mansion) 8 years ago and remembered visiting the mining museum. Been there, done that, have the T-shirt.

Oof. I'm 11/25 so far this season.
I always check the Contestant Zone and check the LL site to see if any of them are LLamas.

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Congrats to BigDaddyMatty on winning our rundle. I knew when I saw yesterday's questions that I'd be taking the L. I managed a winning record for the first time in A, tied a personal high in correct answers, and set a new personal high in ties. Over 4+ years, I've had three straight seasons with 78,...

Re: Monday, September 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What a game! And what a comeback! Jason couldn't have appeared in the Contestant Zone last week. The writers must've been on a Gilbert and Sullivan kick, with answers of "gondoliers" and that infernal nonsense Pinafore, and a DD about a yeoman of the guard. I've been a G&S fan for years and I still ...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

This year, two math majors have won double-digit games. This is great and all, but I'm afraid TPTB won't pick any more of us to be on the show for a long time. :lol:

Congrats to Jboard's resident archaeologist on Scarf #3!
I've started this season off as consistently as possible with 4's on each of the first six match days. I now have more ties than wins or losses. :shock:

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

One of the only operas I’ve ever been to was Philip Glass’s Satyagraha . A friend of mine worked for the Met and had an extra ticket. My only distinct memories of it are that it was quite long, very repetitive, and generally just not my cup of tea. I’m slightly more grateful to have seen it now, as...

Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

I am a bit optimistic about my chances to remain in 'A' for more than one season; it is going to be tough for me but, upon looking at the stats for all of my fellow competitors, it seems to be less of a murderer's row than it was during my last brief visit. A Horizon had the second-lowest QPct of a...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

After getting bomtr'd on Friday and losing again Monday, I thought the National Parks championship was out of reach. But it came down to point differential on the last game, and after winning by 4 while the person (now in 3rd place) won by 3, I finished in second. This is the first time since 2016 I...
