Re: Friday, January 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did anyone say what the substitute clue was? Yes. Oh, you want to know the topic of the clue? Our Lady of Guadalupe. In the series of posts on the subject someone also brought up how the Sagrada Familia clue wanting Spain could bring up Catalonia issues. The next time Michele Loud rang her cowbell ...

Re: Reretaken Down

Losing in the palyoffs always sucks; being surrounded by jubilant 49ers fans probably doesn't help. Sorry Mark. Thanks. With 48 seasons of disappointment I'm used to it. I'd rather the Vikings lose today to the local team instead of losing in Green Bay next week. Making the playoffs and beating New...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In part 1, Alex said they started writing before he finished reading the clue. Is this really possible? Does this mean contestants have more than 30 seconds to write their answers? I don't suspect this would often be of any consequence, but would be good to know. [Wobbles cane and speaks in creaky ...

And DAYUM, Ken! Nicely done! Not looking good for James...sigh. I don't think he's going to win the tournament; I see his legacy getting tarnished. James won 32 games, won over 2 million dollars and won the ToC while smashing a bunch of records along the way. His legacy is fine no matter what has h...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ken and Brad make an excellent team! Ken piles up the points and Brad keeps the daily doubles away from James. That kind of sums up what happened today. Even if James solves DD1 in game 2 of today it does not matter if Brad keeps the more important DD2 and DD3 away from James. Brad is now 4/9 on DD...

5:00 is better than 8:00 and I watched early using locast.org The one ad interruption for the "freemium" site came during a GOAT commercial break.
