Anand is an economist by profession so I'm not surprised by his strong wagering. :)

LT: Stalker/fan, tang, Cat Stevens. I couldn't fully hear the phototropic question because my kids were yelling so I said phototropism. I'm mad at myself that I was able to tease out LSU from red stick but couldn't get Belize on FJ.

"Highbrow" comes from phrenology? Brutally difficult FJ in my opinion. Cerebral was my guess but I know it didn't feel right. I understood phrenology to mean pertaining to the head, and the brow is a part of the head. Wasn't an instaget for me, but pretty close. I was surprised to see it be a TS. T...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

On Tampa Bay Lightning, the word "bolt" was provided as a clue. Kathleen seemed unsure as she answered; I suspect she may have NHO the team and just went based on the clue.

It's time for the reveal.

Re: Thursday, October 19, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Justin got away with a couple of odd pronunciations, like "LaFont" for L'Enfant and "Mount Blanc"; it caught up with him on "Alpennines." To be fair to him on the first one, if you ride the DC Metro, you'll hear dozens of different pronunciations for L'Enfant depending on who the conductor is that ...
