Re: 2011 Tournament of Champions Thread

These are my pre-game thoughts for the Finals with stats from the TOC only: Tom Nissley vs. Buddy Wright vs. Roger Craig Tom: FJ: 2/2 Coryat: 21700 (14,400 & 29,000) DD: 3/4 Position: 1st and Lock Buddy: FJ: 1/2 Coryat: 13800 (16800 and 10800) DD: 2/2 Position: 1st and 1st Roger: FJ: 0/2 Coryat: 222...

Re: Friday, November 11, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

If the game was not a lock then Joon and Mark would have known FJ and not gone for humor? Or only Joon knew it? Mark didn't? I blazed through all the posts here and I'm still unclear. The possibility of a buzz-off between Roger and Mark would have been something else. Since Mark crossed off Toronto ...

Re: Big Bang Theory Poll

Approximate dialogue

Penny: Would I have seen anything you've written?

Guy: That depends on how much time you spend on Yelp. :lol:

Good episode tonight with great lines about Star Wars and Lucas.

Re: Thursday, November 10, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

When I watch the TOC I try to look for scenarios where I could have done well if things fell my way. Put me in QF #1 and I can make the semis. Put me in tonight's game and I can make the finals even with my 15 & 18 correct. Jay could not hear me begging him to dig up Zworykin. The FJ clue was Olivia...

Re: Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tom had the Gold-finger in the DJ round to put the game away. Losing 2600 on JENNA! JENNA! JENNA! to the third power only slowed Tom down a tad. Paderewsi was exactly the kind of thing I had in mind when I Bronzed Justin before the tournament. A known name that he should get. I never took into accou...

Re: 2011 Tournament of Champions Thread

You've forgotten the DD that Justin got. Thank you seaborgium. I didn't forget about the DD that Justin got. My problem was crediting it to Christopher instead with a 3 instead of a 2 for Justin's player position. With my error not affecting the combined Coryat that's one I would have had little ch...

Re: 2011 Tournament of Champions Thread

This has my thoughts about the first semi game for Wednesday the 9th only. I put it in spoilers in case someone is behind on seeing the games. Semi #1: Tom Nissley vs. Eric McLean vs. Justin Sausville If I had seen this match-up before the the QF games I would have said Tom in a blow-out since this ...

Re: Tuesday, November 8, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

18th Century Authors is one for a precall. Mine was Swift. I saw the clue and could not find anything about Gulliver or eating children. If something in the clue was screaming satire I was missing it. I took "Dean" to Dan as in Daniel and switched to Defoe. Grrrr! Is it too late to flip Christopher ...

Re: Monday, November 7, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

One more hockey sidetrack. Today's local paper had this headline for the hockey roundup:

Isles' Nabokov perforated

Ouch! As if giving up 3 goals on 12 shots in less than 15 minutes wasn't enough. Once you leave the Sharks the paper gives you no mercy.

If the thread is going to go the way of TV shows not on DVD? The Wonder Years . I can at least watch episodes through Amazon thanks to Prime. The Cocker opening song is different, though. How many heads are there on the dragon preventing any chance of the Adam West version of Batman seeing the light...

Re: Monday, November 7, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'll share how I missed the FJ clue. First I tried refrain for a part of a song. An instrument? I have nothing. Chorus? Let's find an instrument. Sounds like chord. I wrote clavichord. Greek roots? I didn't know, but it was the best I could do. Lyrics to lyre? I could have made the leap to the instr...

Sorry, but a double whammy of picture as key part of the clue and the clue not in the archive yet is very unlikely to be included. Just curious, why is "I missed all the FJs" an option for these polls? The...

Re: 2011 Tournament of Champions Thread

Yes, 4/7 for Roger on FJs. Thanks. 4/5 was Krizel on the line above on my spreadsheet. After last year when Vijay won the whole thing going 3/9 on FJs for his career that stat has become somewhat meaningless.

Re: FJs for the 10/31/11 week

The players were 6/15 (40.00%) with a 2-1-2-1-0 success pattern. Shouldn't that be 7/15 (46.67%) 2-1-2-1-1? Joon got Algonquin. Yes, thanks. It's fixed now. I have a cheat sheet set up for me in the archive to help with getting the poll up and with Friday's game not entered it leaves room for my ki...
