Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 7, Day 6

Post by DadofTwins »

Here we go. The last day of the Regular Season.

HUGE kudos to our score keeping team. Head scorer cheezguyty, daily scorers econgator, sherder, Kingrat47, peggles, Pete, and barandall have sacrificed large amounts of time to make this game go. This year especially, without them we have no game.

There will be more thank-yous when we do the credit roll after the TOC.

I had said before that I hoped to launch the TOC Wednesday, but I now realize that will be impossible, since the regular season will not close until sometime Thursday morning. The new plan is to spend the next few days getting all of the scores in and tabulated, and posting the first two days of the TOC on Friday.

Good luck to those still in the running, either for the TOC, for League of Dorks honors, or even in your own personal grudge matches.

CANCELLED GAME SHOWS

(Game shows that have come and gone since Jeopardy debuted in 1984)

2: George Smoot and Ken Jennings both relied on their elementary-aged helpers on this Jeff Foxworthy-hosted show.

4: On a game show-themed episode of Doctor Who, the character Ann Droid told contestants “You are” this, also the name of the game. “Goodbye.”

6: A kids' version of this late '80s game show was called Pictionary Kids, after the board game that inspired the show.

8: This cable network has produced and aired trivia games “2 Minute Drill” and “Stump the Schwab.”

10: In this Wink Martindale-produced game with an almost-rhyming title, teams tried to decode messages in vanity license plates.

HEAR BEN STEIN'S MUSIC

(Bumper music from Win Ben Stein's Money, minus the audio clips. Because I'm just mean that way, don't you know.)

3: Instructions provided by Vivaldi for performers of the second movement of this suite's “Autumn” say that “the drunkards have fallen asleep.”

6: Handel omitted the harpsichord and the timpani from this piece commissioned by George I, presumably because they were too large to play on a river barge.

9: This Tchaikovsky title object is broken when Fritz attempts to open a walnut in its jaw.

12: The original tone poem that became this Mussorgsky work is set during a witches' sabbath on St. John's Eve.

15: The title of his chorale for the 27th Sunday after Trinity translates in English to “Wake up, the voice calls to us.”
