Re: Thursday, November 3, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILER

I'm feeling really dense now. What is the link between Australia and Poland? Other than they both contain an 'a' and an 'l', I haven't a clue. Like Woof, I thought it was a joke answer. Add me to thoise wanting to know about the Australian/Polish connection. If Poland was settled by English convict...

Re: Thursday, November 3, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILER

I can see her reasoning in questioning "threeome". The category was called "Counting Down" (or something like that), which indicated to me the responses would all have numbers in them. The wording confused me. All I could come up with was transitive property, but her response guided me in the right ...

Re: Thursday, November 3, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILER

It is possible Roger was blugened to death at the hotel the night after the quarterfinals by some woman looking to break into Alex's room. If that happened, he'd get $5,000 and we'd have a fifth wild card.

Re: Wednesday, November 2, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILE

And as long as I'm gambling away a low-ball WC spot if I'm wrong, why not shoot for a nice big number, like $20K. It gets you the W or a nice big WC seed. It also gets you into a Semi game where your opponents aren't quite sure whether you're a) a show-off, b) a loose cannon, c) unstudied, or d) ma...

Re: Thursday, November 3, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILER

Kara's position wa one where you might as well bet big. Brian's score was borderline at best for getting in, so his bet wasn't bad. Nothing bally about Roger' bet. In the QF round, you are playing with Monopoly money so it doesn't matter what you wind up with if you have a lock game unles SF positio...

Re: Wednesday, November 2, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILE

I would not go DD hunting in a category with a punny title like Bad Heir Day. I had a pretty good idea what it was going to be about, but it could have been about scions of wealthy families that had bad days. I'd have at least gone for the top clue to get a feel of what it was about before plunging ...

Re: Wednesday, November 2, 2011 TOC Game Recap & Disc(SPOILE

I thought the board wasn't any harder than a normal game. There must have been some opening night jitters, as they all had some bad missteps. For some reason, I knew Carrie's last name, but couldn't pull up her first, but I'm crediting myself with it anyway. Loved a baseball category in the TOC!!!! ...

Re: 2011 TOC Wild Card Standings (11/2 spoiler)

The first semifinalist is in and it looks like we may have our first wild card already. A somewhat risky move on Jay's part, as $7,599 is unlikely to nab a wild card.

Re: The 2012 online test for adults

I think they should at least spring for your hotel room. Maybe work a deal with a hotel for an on air plug in exchange for free rooms.

2011 TOC Wild Card Standings (All QF results up)

Back by popular demand, I am once again tracking the wild card standings as the quarterfinals progress. Well, nobody has actually demanded it, but I'm doing it anyway. The standings will be kept in the second post in this thread and I'll edit the thread title so you'll know when the standings have b...

Re: TD 141: From Cradle to Grave

I was getting my oil changed Friday and was reading an old issue of ESPN:The Magazine. I was flipping through and came across an article about the hammer throw and how the record had stood for a long time. The title of the article was 86.7, which was in big, bold font. It wasn't something I was look...

Re: Monday, October 31, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

I didn't know the end of the world guy's name, either. I don't think I ever knew the guy's name, even when he was in the news in May. Perhaps if I had, his name would have stuck with me.

The whole thing with pretending its new day has always amused me.

Re: Monday, October 31, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

It was referring to a quote, so it would have to be exact, I'd say it wouldn't count.

Took me a second to get to coimmunists, was fairly confident going into the reveal.

Agree it was a much better game as all three finished DJ over $10,000 and good DD wagering by Evan.

So slam had to start a new TOC standings thread before the previous TOC had started. If Sunny wins monday, he (or someone) will have to start the 2011-12 TOC standings b...
