Re: SHC Round 2 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

I am chagrined about getting the Day 2 Beatles question wrong. My thought processes were: "Only Beatles album to win 'Album of the Year' Grammy? Well, if it's a Grammy, it can't be an actually great album . . . and it's got to be something kitschy and commercial . . . it's gotta be Magical Mystery ...

Re: SHC Round 2 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

We were due for an easy day, though I am kicking myself for the two that I clammed on. I considered Idaho for the 4-pointer but the name of the city just didn't ring a bell, so I clammed. I knew that the Warren Beatty movie was called Red-something but I couldn't remember the exact title. It hurts t...

Re: SHC Round 2 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

This week has been brutal, even more than usual by my standards. Mythology is usually a decent category for me but I struggled with this one, though I should have known Hathor. Thinking about SHC History: I would probably rank 2009 as the SHC with the toughest regular season, and either 2008 or 2010...

Re: SHC Round 1 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

I didn't read the 3 point clue carefully enough on day 5 and said The Louvre. That robbed me my first SHC perfecto since the first week of 2007. I did make the lucky guess on Billy the Kid over Jesse James. I had a hunch that James was a little bit older when he was killed. I've seen Bill and Ted's ...

The first two days started off pretty well for me, by my standards, but these last two days have sunk me. *Praying for wheelhouse categories for these next 2 days.*

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

I am Steven Hanley. I am 25 years old, and I'll be 26 in October. I live in metro Atlanta, and have been here for most of my life. My mom is originally from south Georgia, and my dad is originally from Connecticut, so I am half southerner, half yankee by blood, I suppose. I have been a big fan of Je...

Re: SHC Round 1 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

I request that my answer of "The Outcasts of Poker Flat" be accepted. I read the clue wrong and thought that it wanted the title, but I promise that I still knew it either way.

And I have to say that video games and Literature are great ways to start off the SHC :)
