    I thought the same thing Except from my generation it would be a lifetime of, "Now Bif, don't con me". Its the classic 1980s preppy douchebag guy name. My thought on this as well. Knew Sweden, once I figured out the "middle Scandinavian country", so Norway or Sewden. Also don't understand now it has a maritime border with the UK. Thought looking at a map would clear it up, but no, just makes it more confusing since the Netherlands and Belgium are east of Germany and closer to the UK

    Personal opinions : Close family get one wedding they where you should feel obligated and do what you can to attend. After that, its more up to the attendees to decide. I know people get divorced, things happen, but still.......second weddings are not the same as first weddings, IMO. When my wife and I were married, his brother and sister in law did not attend because we chose to get married on their anniversary, which made her sister in law mad. We really had no choice in the matter, it was the only day we could get married based on my job schedule, which was tight. We didn't purposely do it to make her mad, I actually I had no idea it was their anniversary. My sister's anniversary is around the same time, for all I knew it could have been the same day as hers too. Didn't matter, we had one day where it could happen.

    Will is so odd He has some answers like that, or the anagrams category, where you wonder what he is thinking Then there are others, things of I have never heard of and would never be able to get, that he knows. Easiest final jeopardy in awhile. Yes I don't like those categories where you have to get two related answers because my mind doesn't work that quickly with them. I could get them, but not in five seconds or less.

    Joel always loves the beginning of things Always has big ideas and plans. Its following through on them the second anything holds him back or he hits a roadblock that he struggles. I am enjoying this season more than last season. And I too prefer the stand up scenes.

    Very boring game Goff and the Rams OL looked awful. No idea why Gurley was out so long. McVey didn't seem to make any offensive adjustments. Brady really did, and had to do, very little in that game. Just throw it to Edelman, who was wide open, most of the night. Brandin Cooks, dropped two TDs. Both were tough catches, but one should have been still made and the other still could have been made, right through his hands twice. That game though was all BB and coaching, stopping the Rams. Rams did a great job as well on D, just not as good as the Patriots

    Yes but do they have anything to do with sulfur, which was the category topic?

    No he really did not. Although I did not catch or follow the first answer in that category. Was it "cry" and something? Butane for kerosene? Booooo

    And you are not exaggerating about the "crook" part for Illinois in terms of governors. Four of the last severe went to prison? All states do this with useless bills like this though. I read one that a large percentage of all bills passed are naming such pretty useless stuff, like a special day of the year or state flower, snack food, metal, car, whatever. I can't find the exact stat and can't recall the exact number, but the point being, its a whole lot of trivial things that make it through

    S10.E14: We Need to Talk About Lily

    basically any story involving Phil always seems to work, I think a credit to his acting ability more than anything. The others are very hit and miss.

    Wow........that is the most long winded and confusing half explanation of "pound sound" I can imagine. They try, in a detailed manner, but still not sure I completely understand. For one the phrase seems to be used in different ways by different people, from what I am reading : One being "pound sound up your..." rear or ear, however vulgar you want to be, which is a phrasing I never heard, just seems to be a reference to tell someone off and to do something unpleasant. This seems more in line with how I heart it used, just never heard the full phrasing like that The other seems to be doing something pointless, because "pounding sound" is pointless. Yet its not always pointless, that is the problem with that interpretation. You can pound sand into different types of holes, as mentioned, and you can pound sound to condense it and make it more dense, that is basically how sound castles and structures are made, to some extent, especially if its wet, so its not always pointless.

    S10.E14: We Need to Talk About Lily

    Jay and Stella I thought was sweet. I was kind of glad Lilly was not into that Youtube girl because she was annoying, for any age. And can completely relate to how Lilly acts with her headphones always on to My son does the exact same thing. ANd he is a good kid, smart, doesn't do anything wrong, but trying to get stuff out of him and get him to take off his headphones is impossible sometimes. I just kept thinking about how much that house Pepper was buying must cost and how much Phil stood to make off it. I know he wasn't doing it for the money, but still, even if she showed him 200 houses, may well have been worth it. That's a good 100K+ commission I would think at a minimum. Probably more like 200K or more.

    I didn't know boccie is spelled with an ie. That was not what kept me from getting it right, but still didn't know Once again missed on FJ. Went with Whitney Houston. Got Kennedy as a TS. Really, how could the 3rd person, the new champ, not get that one? I know, middle of the game, but the category is the 1960s, you know its a president and the other two people had already guessed Nixon and Johnson. Kennedy is the only likely answer. I guess technically Eisenhower was president for a year in the 60s, but seemed obvious it was Kennedy Now the "pound sand" answer has me wondering where that phrase originated. I have heard it before, but no idea why that means what it does. I have a facebook friend who is an editor/journalism guy and this comes up on sports for high school/college teams and its a pet peeve it seems of his. For the women's teams, many will add 'Lady' in front of the team nickname, and he insists that is not correct. They are not say the 'Lady' Wildcats, they are just the Wildcats, like the men's team would be. So I imagine they would be the same way to an editor. They really should be just "writers" and "singers", as many on here insist as well If they are going to add qualifiers though, I don't know how why you would say "women writers" vs. "female singers".

    I kind of liked Sean, wanted him to win Women authors.....I immediately thought, "Some people are going to be mad about that one" Also I had no clue on FJ. I sort of recognize the name, but I know nothing about Dorothy parker and would not have been able to come up with that even if you gave me a dictionary of "women authors" and let me choose one. I had no idea amy Adams has been Oscar nominated 5 or 6 times. But then I get her, Rachel McAdams and Isla Fisher all mixed up.

    For the fans, I don't think it really matters I think the idea of the pro bowl for the players and coaches it works better having it in Hawaii and after the season. More than anything, its a chance for players on different teams to get to know one another and a chance from different players and coaches, or different coaches, to meet and get to know one another. I recall Peyton Manning telling a story one year and him and BB sitting out by the pool somewhere at the Pro Bowl talking. manning asked him if he recalled a certain play from the prior year when they met and BB went off on how they had the perfect D and play called for it and some player missed a tackle or screwed it up and he was so pissed about it. This is a similar story I found, but is not the article I recall reading https://patriotswire.usatoday.com/2017/10/05/that-time-bill-belichick-and-peyton-manning-sat-down-for-beers/ Also a chance for the players and the media to have some extra time together. And when you do it in Hawaii and after the season it works much better for them. Many player would also take their families to Hawaii Basically the Pro Bowl in Hawaii after the season is a great idea for the players, coaches and media in every way EXCEPT for the game itself, which no one takes seriously or cares about.

    S09.E08: The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From the Alibi

    Is Fiona still on probation? Will she go back to jail if she is caught drinking, loses her job she obtained as part of a work release and generally acting like the drunk ass she has been lately? If she is on probation she eventually has to meet her probation officer. That won't go well. The new girlfriend for lip is a pushy bitch. SHe is hot, that is all she has going for her. And back to Fiona, really all that happened was some douchebag vanilla boyfriend turned out to be married. That guy added nothing to the show, or to her, just the flavor of the month, get over him. They never really had any chemistry or seemed to have anything in common She actually came out even or still ahead with the real estate deal, which isn't bad. Not like she lost money and is in debt.
