Re: Tuesday, November 18, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think tonight was the first time I muttered something under my breath about all the bouncing going on in an Arthur game - for whatever reason, I had trouble keeping up tonight when keeping score and that didn't even happen in the regular season games. Mark and Rebecca did a great job reining it in...

2nd place finisher: Largely forgotten.
$1 to 3rd: "How in Chuck's name did that fool win the first game?"

I'll take the $2k and run, but clearly I'm in a severe minority.

Really cheesed about missing the Titanic clue, especially. Roommate nailed Don Quixote, but I clammed on it. Never purchased or sold on Etsy but I've done podcasts with someone who does so that's how I knew that one.

Cannon = gun? I thought it was just, you know, a cannon — its own thing, not in a category. Cannon = gun. Canon = several religious principles, including a type of priest or the basic fundamentals of a belief system. Also see the difference between "headcanon" as something you believe in fiction ev...

I sort of backed into Final by thinking "It's got to be a low country, and I think Amsterdam has way more than a million people... Brussels?" Turned out to be right, so yay for me. Though did it look like the ladies spelled Brussels with two Ls to anyone else (Brussells)? I figured it didn't matter ...

Re: TD 204: Vote for Pedro: Flashback to 2004

Both of my sources (WBZ in Boston and CHCH in Hamilton) run the show at 7:30 ET/8:30 AT. As I usually work until 8:00 ET/9:00 AT, I have a series recording set.
