Nope, true. But in fairness I’m not reading it very faithfully, it’s in my car and I read it when I’m stuck waiting for someone in a parking lot.

Re: Tuesday, March 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll be the first to grouse that "Brass in Pocket" isn't followed by a parenthetical "(I'm Special)" on any release of the first Pretenders album that I've ever seen. Seconded. With all of the famous rock songs that use parentheticals in their titles, they could easily have used one where this wasn...

“Name the 2 Italians who were famously executed in the 1920s” is a $2000 clue? Am I the only one who thinks that is top row material?

Re: Tuesday, February 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't like this either. Kind of like when they accept "the Mooch" as a correct response. Accepting nicknames just invites controversy. I agree as he may not have known his actual name. (Sully could be short for Sullivan). I wonder if they would take Ike for Eisenhower. Initialisms are accepted w...

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), January 29, 2020

Millionaire didn't have auditions in 2000, it was all phone qualifying. About as merit based as possible. That's why an asshole like me was able to make it on stage. No song and dance required. I ran the numbers on getting on stage during that time. 4 shows per week, therefore 4 chances to play the...

Surprised they didn't include Brett Kavanagh in the DC college question to give it currency. Precalled Rushdie for Controversial Authors (like 'American Pie' for 70s song yesterday), and that's all I recall.
Kavanaugh didn't go to Georgetown U

Re: Reretaken Down

Honorable mentions: the other three Led Zeppelin members will have survived John Bonham by 40 years this September, and Richard Carpenter will have survived Karen by 37 next month (although duos somehow feel against the spirit of this question). The rest of the Rolling Stones (except non-official m...

For the make like a tree pun I have gone back and forth on it for the archive as I hear "leave" while the CC has "leaf" and I can hear that as well. Yes Biff Tannen would have another idea. My wife and I both heard “leaf” and were waiting for a reversal, which I believe would have put him in second...

cheezguyty: If you don't mind more fun how about today's DD clues being found in 26th+22nd+29th spots for 77 total and when was a higher sum for the DDs hiding so well. Thanks. 77 or higher is "a few times a season" common. The last time was 2019-07-09 (30+24+27=81). The record (dating back to Ken'...

"Liquor" BMSes to volume?
Why not, and what else to do? It would be hard to justify deeming "liquor" wrong. Technically, a more helpful prompt would have been "be more general", but that would have given away too much.

The Browns and Steelers must not like each other. That was ugly. Myles Garrett is going to be a hot topic tomorrow. That was like WWE unscripted.
