Robert Moses was primarily an official of New York state, not city. He built public Works projects from Niagara to The Hamptons. He was given the honorary title of New York City Park commissioner after he had already been State Park commissioner for 20 years.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Missed the game because I was at work. I hope that was not true tonight also. That was a bad game for Brad. He is a better player than that game brought out. I think the key to the encephalogram encephalograph trap is that the graph is the machine and the gram is the report it issues. That might no...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got who is "Lewis and Clark Clifford Odets" right away but nearly stumbled saying it. That is quite a tongue twister. Presidents and the Bible was a kind of sneaky category name because the answer had nothing to do with the president, and the clue only obliquely included a president. It was basica...

For me, the highlight of this rerun was seeing Sofia again. Here's an article about her that ran in the Chicago Tribune the day after this game aired: https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-xpm-2004-06-03-0406030264-story.html I also happened to notice that in those days they were pointing at camera...

Re: Friday, May 1, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just thought of the most basic Spanish article and it led me directly to the correct answer. If el is the most basic, which is the least basic? This seems to be a hostile question, but I will answer anyway since we're probably done with games for this season and who knows how long. In learning a ...

Re: Thursday, April 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Charlie Byrd is definitely wrong because there is a guitarist by that name. The clue said it was a saxophonist, so someone who says "Charlie Bird" in response to it is ipso facto not referring to the guitarist. You are wrong. It matters not who a contestant refers to or who they MEANT to say. If th...

Re: TD 444 - 40 For 40 (Final results)

Thanks for the TD and to everyone who played. At least I got a singleton out of Monroe, but then unfortunately reverted to type with Atlantic City.

Hammer: Can you pick up a station from another market, perhaps even in Canada? Maybe you could get an amplified indoor antenna.

I did not mean to disparage Alwyn. If anything, you could have turned it back onto me because I didn't recognize the small letter t. It looked to me like a thorn or something. I got Janet Jackson from Control. I wouldn't have recognized her or Ariana Grande from the video clip alone. It would not ha...

There's also a ghost town of Bodie Nevada. I got balfour just from British Statesman and declaration and didn't even need to read the rest of the clue about Jewish state. 1917 helped, of course. Whatever was that symbol Tim drew at the start of what he said was the time machine? It sure didn't look ...

If a response of taxiing is needed to be elicited, I would suggest, "an aircraft in engages in this maneuver to get from the terminal to the runway."

So I pulled a Homer then.

But it isn't enough that an astronaut didn't do that in 2012; rather that Snopes debunked the idea that one did.

I can't stand Mina's stentorian voice. But she toned it down after the first break so I wonder if one of the contestant coordinators told her to chill. Then she reverted to type toward the end of double jeopardy. 0.96 would be a phenomenal batting average! But like the clue said, a microscopic ERA. ...
