Re: TD 458 - 51 [Q1-Q8 revealed]

I thought Grisham was from New Mexico, but I couldn't get out of my head the idea that I might have been conflating her with Yvette Herrell (who is a US Rep from the state). Fortunately my backup choice worked just fine.

Re: Monday, May 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had FJ spoiled but I don't see any way I would have missed it.

I was very impressed by Bill Whitaker; there seems to be a general sense that he isn't a serious contender, but I'm perfectly content with him the next two weeks.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

It's reported that Aaron Rodgers doesn't want to return to the Green Bay Packers, and Jeopardy figures into the equation. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31359453/aaron-rodgers-want-return-green-bay-packers-sources-say I'd venture to say it mainly figures into the equation in that he's trying t...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

STREET NAMES Name of a road running from Chester Ave to 135th St in Kansas City, and of an avenue also known as US 71 in Texarkana. What is State Line? I got it because I live here, but I'd predict a low get rate without a lot more TOM. Also, I wonder about saying it's "in" Kansas City. At least ac...

Re: Tuesday, April 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Frank Sinatra is a symbol of White oppression? And yes, Kelly should be pissed at that tmz article but then again, tmz isn’t very good. The argument isn't that Sinatra himself is, but rather that Sinatra is there displaying a gesture that was subsequently co-opted by nefarious forces, long after hi...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I have a general question about LL. I was in it several years ago; my family came upon hard times financially when my wife got injured and I lost my job, so I had to bow out. I remember Thorsten saying that he was considering a policy where one cannot rejoin. I no longer get the emails at the end o...

Re: Tuesday, April 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I suspect one reason for the intense backlash over the accusations is a fear that this is something that could happen to anyone, even then. I certainly agree the Sinatra thing doesn't look good, but I was talking about this with my wife. She (to her credit, frankly) has no background knowledge of th...

The use of the Romany slur falls more on the show for not editing it out than him. Not everybody is aware it is a slur, but the producers had no excuse.

Re: Wednesday, April 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was trying to explain to my wife the wagering situation and that we could fully expect all-in wagers from the top two. She told me she disagreed (math isn't quite her strong suit), and then I ended up looking really dumb.

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

Thanks for hosting!

I, too, have made the mistake of confusing US highways and Interstate highways in TD. In one of the first ones I entered, I confidently submitted that I-59 went through Kansas because I had recently driven US-59 from Kansas City to Tulsa.

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

I have no desire to see reruns of content that I saw just three months ago where many of the questions are likely still in my mind. I get why they're doing it... but the whole situation stinks.

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

Why are Bible questions "unfair"? I know nothing about English royalty but I don't insist it be removed from the canon.

On this one, I went the wrong way because I made a mistake I've made before - I default to thinking of "la" as a French article, not a Spanish one.

I, too, thought I was being clever with that one. The depth of sports knowledge here is remarkable.
