Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

I picked up my first forfeit win of the season, to strengthen my hold on 3rd place in my rundle. We have a few "serial" forfeiters in our rundle this time around; only two forfeited on Monday, and I don't know how much of that was as a result of the hurricane. I lost power at the house Monday aftern...

Re: Monday, September 11, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have not read through the game thread because...

...I lost power at the house Monday afternoon due to Hurricane Irma and did not get to see the season premiere. Does someone have the link to the website where previous day's episodes can be viewed?

Thanks so much!

Re: Jeopardy! Season 34

Johnny Gilbert is 93???? He definitely doesn't sound like he is 93.

I just looked him up on Wikipedia and yup...he was born in 1924. Amazing.

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

Thorsten was quite generous on MD6, allowing me to claim a 8(5)-1(2) win. -- I said Daisy Buchanan instead of Daisy -- I responded simply "Exchequer" for Chancellor of the Exchequer I also got a wild guess correct with the Pirates of Penzance...but I thought I remembered Linda Ronstadt starring in a...

Almost 6 am here on the east coast of U.S. and I still can't get in. Getting ready to leave for work and won't be home until almost 9 pm tonight. Hopefully, LL will be up by then.

For the first time in my seven LL seasons, I emerged victorious on MD1, in a 2(1)-1(2) win.

Re: TD 348 - Q9 RESULTS - PENDING

My answer was "The Star", with Bette Davis. I had just watched that in recent weeks on one of the cable movie channels. In that film, she plays a fallen star who attempts a comeback and against her agent's advice, changes the way she plays an audition scene.

It blows my mind that the current champ who dethroned 5-time champ Jon Eisenman got really far in the red. $3,600 in negs in the first round?! My big question is...how did she even become champ when she did this bad in the first round?! Does this situation seem familiar? The Erin/Sophie/David game ...

4 SHEEPS in 8 questions...that has to be nearing some kind of percentage record and not a good recipe for success.

In one of those coincidences that gives me chills when they happen...I had just watched "Julia", the 1977 film starring Jane Fonda and Vanessa Redgrave, Tuesday night..so when the Dashiell Hammett clue came up in Wednesday's game, I knew the answer was Lillian Hellman...or I would not have known it ...

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

I finished alternating losses and ties over the final 6 MD...and finished 5th in my rundle with a 12-6-7 record and missed promotion to D rundle by 1 point. Set record highs for total correct answers and correct answer percentage in a season, defensive efficiency and ties in a season.

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

After a string of 12 match days without a defeat and working up to the #3 position in my rundle, the anticipated slow fade occurred this past week, going 0-3-2 and slipping to 6th place with one day to go. Mathematically, I could still finish in the top 4 and get promoted to D rundle for LL74...but ...

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

My unbeaten streak reached 12 matches on Friday, in a 2(2)-0(0) win, to improve my record to 12-3-4 on the season and staying at #3 in my division. I went back and forth between port and sherry...and settled on sherry, which was a good guess. Band Aid was an easy one for me. I'm sort of stunned that...

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

Wow...I am living a charmed life in LL73. I won my 11th match in the last 14 Match Days on MD18, 1(1)-0(1); the only question I got correct was Alaska Airlines, and that was a guess. I'm now 11-3-4 on the season...and my streak without a loss reached 11 days...and I am still in the #3 position in ou...

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

After going 1-0-1 answering just two answers correctly on MD14 and MD15, I got 4 correct on MD16 but had to settle for a 4(4)-4(2) tie; bad defense cost me the win. Now 9-3-4 on the year, I slipped to #4 in the rundle. Today, I face fellow boardie dott888, who has won the last three matches against ...

Re: Learned League 73 - Official Thread

I got a gift from my opponent when they gave me 2 points for the Dow Jones question and zero for Chipotle. Is there some way people are supposed to know this without eating at Chipotle? I was at a big disadvantage on that question; there are no Chipotle restaurants in my area. Fortunately, my oppon...

My 6-match win streak ended on MD14, but I did manage a 1(1)-1(2) tie with my opponent to remain #3 in my division; I have 19 points...the #4 person has 18...and there are 6 other people within two points of 4th place, the last of the promotion positions. The upcoming week promises to be an interest...

I recorded a record 6th consecutive win on MD13 in a 6(3)-1(2) win to improve to 8-3-2 on the season and climbed into the promotion zone for the first time; I am now in the #3 position in the rundle. This makes 5 consecutive match days where I have answered at least 3 questions correctly. Will the s...
