Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

If I dropped in from another dimension, I can't objectively say I'd turn off the TV if Oz was hosting and would leave it on Alex was hosting. I have no sense of nostalgia for Alex, and both Katie and Oz made me chuckle at about the same rate as Alex used to in the span of ten games. I don't recall a...

FJ: I knew it had to be the big waterfall without really knowing which country it is in, one of those South American ones. Came up with it in time after getting "Ribbon Falls" out of the brain. I'll be glad when it is renamed because being the first white guy to see something shouldn't give naming r...

That is the church that was disestablished. Full credit. So "The Anglican Church" would have counted? That was the first thing that came to mind for me. I'd say so. Nope. The Church in Wales split from the Church of England. Both are Anglican churches. But it's not wrong. If "church" counts, certai...

I will put the under at 35% in the poll, with a chance of the low 20's. I guess the designer's name has some traction, but not to me. What a good game, and I think the champ opened with four misses in a row. The Primer/Primer clue was cruel. I've never heard the children's book pronounced without th...

FJ: Assume acting and badassery are inherited traits. Name a badass actor from mid 19th century. I picked Booth, but really don't like the pathway. I don't think of acting as a family business, although there are plenty of examples. I'm sure it's the connections, not the inherited talent, although t...

Re: Reretaken Down

I will double down and agree on this comment. Do you have to say the "Old Course" at St. Andrews? The "New Course" is 125 years old :lol:. (Happy to say I've played both - the New course allows buggies so my 79 year old father could join me). Getting unhinged, and away from Jeopardy, I'd prefer it ...

I said Augusta and since I'm not likely to meet any Club members to laugh at me I'm fine with it... ;) With all due deference to Golf, I'm going to disagree with him and say "Augusta" on its own is just fine.

I knew who they wanted for FJ, but the best I could do is "four letter name that starts with M _ _ _. I got Muir right away. I am nonplussed by the other responses. Ansel Adams was a photographer!

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Knew I've heard the ISIL alternative name pronounced "dash" but needed to make it five letters, so I went with "daash." Nope. And then I guessed "meme cute" for the novel title. Ugh. I was happy to see the question, until I hit the five letter requirement. I wrote down Dashe, Dassh, Daash, and went...
