Re: Wednesday, April 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

LOL, just LOL at Babe Ruth breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball in 1947. LOL, just LOL at Ezra Pound being a woman. I've never heard the Continental Divide called the Continental Ridge. I'm surprised they accepted that. Alex did some cool stuttering, but at least he didn't break into ...

I focused on the Bamba instead of the Guayll and went with Equatorial Guinea.

Interesting facts about Equatorial Guinea: It's a kleptocracy where the dictator recently had constructed for himself the world's largest yacht.

Re: Monday, April 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Youse people who thought the Tyler was Cock of the Walk after the quarter-finals last week. I was waiting most of the game for the other shoe to drop on him. I was thinking it was curtains when he was behind going into FJ and especially when I saw what an easy clue it was. I should know enough about...

Re: Thursday, April 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Morbeedo: I understand how in a normal game that would be infuriating, but keep in mind that in a quarter-final Tournament game, they play all 60 Clues.

If it really bothers you, grab a bottle of cream of tartar from the McCormick spice rack and have a pinch with your yogurt.

The only Z store I've heard of is Zappo's.
Anyone remember the Canadian discount store Zellers?

They were kind of sort of taken over by Target. Closed Zellers stores reopened as Targets after a delay of a year-and-a-half.

Re: Thursday, April 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have to call hubris on Joe's fj bet. He was nearly a sure thing for either getting a semi final spot or a wild card. His bet could have put him into Oblivion. You know you don't have to; just say it's a bad wager. There are bad Wagers practically every day. Hubris is rare. I go months without cal...

^ Same here. Who else fell for the NM trap on the 1st DD?
Not me. I know the New Mexico border is longer, and I've driven from Yuma to San Diego, so I know the mileage is approximately 140.

Re: Monday, April 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game was a severe disaster. I thought it was amusing when the contestant tried to shut Alex up on his commentary after the penultimate clue in order to get the last clue in before the buzzer. She obviously doesn't know that they play all 60 clues in the quarterfinal game of the tournament. I am...

Another thing, for the record: The story above about Fiorello La Guardia is entirely made up. I find no evidence that La Guardia ever was a reporter, and in 1898 16-year-old La Guardia was living with his family in Europe. He didn't return to the US until 1906.

Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Altogether I have to say this was a weak game and a poor field of contestants. The middle man snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. His performance on the 2 Daily Doubles was thoroughly unimpressive. We look forward to your impressive performance that we can all laud. (Seriously; keep in mind t...

NHO the University of Michigan. That seems kind of obscure for a top row box. :twisted: Mozambique was colonized by the Portuguese. Zimbabwe and the former Southern Rhodesia have been in the news for enough of the contestant's life that he should have recognized it after being spotted both capitals....

Re: TD 443 - Hoops... (Final results)

Thanks for the TD and to everyone who played.

Ooo... I would have won if I knew that finalists referred to only the championship game and not the Final Four.
