I thought for sure Katie was a goner. What a shock when she won! Good on her for making the correct final wager :) I noticed she began writing immediately and was surprised she answered incorrectly. They cut to her right at the end of the think music and you can tell she doesn't have it. I thought ...

Great Dane!

I would have flubbed Diamond Head, Doris Kearns Goodwin and Ferdinand with close-but-no-cigar responses

I got credit for East Pakistan. Technically incorrect, though I would have won anyway.

Ursula von der Leyen? Not in a million years

She’s still a dreadful host. That voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me. Great effort by the team. The “professor’s’ questions were suspiciously easy.
Players in the Final Chase get to choose the question set (A/B) but we don’t see that at home, unlike the GSN version

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Gotta say, I'm baffled that over half the league doesn't know what a first down signal looks like. Sadly, combined with my horrendous defense this season, that turned my six-pack into a 9(6)-9(5) tie. Not a sports person. I was between “down” and field goal- figured field goal was wrong but put it ...

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?

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I felt good about remembering the steps in units from fluid ounces to a gallon, finding 128. But I didn't know tablespoons to fluid ounces. I made a list of the multiples of 128 up until 1280 and checked for any squares. I found 256 and 1024. Only 256 tablespoons to fill up an entire gallon jug see...

Re: J! in the Media

Even if the movies were free and people received a complementary bucket of popcorn, I wouldn't go. Haven't been to a theater in 30 years. I'd be the guy who got shot 50 times for telling the wrong person to shut up and put away his damned phone. I hear you! The crowd in Manhattan was pretty tame ye...

Went to the movies today for the first time in a while. Forgot that you get 25 minutes of trailers and commercials before the movie starts. Anyway- one of the trailers featured Alex Trebek in a Jeopardy! cameo. Forgot which movie- maybe the Ryan Reynolds movie, Free Guy? It felt strange and awkward...

How did anybody jump to graffiti? I was looking for something starting with 'f' as akin to sfumato (which I only learned about on LL81 (or thereabouts). 'G' would be about the last consonant I'd look at for an initial silent 's'. I abandoned the silent S angle and looked for Italian art terms that ...
