Luke, we hardly knew ye...
Hey, kicking the can down the road has gotten the Grizzlies this far... pair the 1st rounder with a distressed asset (Green, Carter, you choose) for future considerations and call it good.
Hail KB reporter, well met. You have been missed.
Leterme...? Wow, Knowledge Bowl is heady stuff. I can only hope this was in reference to Flanders (d'oh!) or at least Belgian waffles.
Speaking of Shepard (and no argument on your ranking of him), it occurs to that while GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS is the greatest of all boy movies sans explosions, boobs, and car chases (which eliminates most boy movies, to be sure), THE RIGHT STUFF is a close second; discuss.
There really is nothing like the momentum of ringing in early and picking up the bonus. Matches like this make me wish for a round robin or at least a losers' bracket -- Arlington had a really tough draw in SB@A and they nearly pulled off a huge upset. Oh well, more time now for fruitful pursuits like facial hair, Tigers.
This is the first week where the Malaprostagisms gave me not just pause but dead stop. All those consonants... I can see where the host might have struggled. At least he got all the kids' names correct...?
Another swing and a miss by teams fueled entirely by girl power. Too bad, because KB should be an equal opportunity pursuit. Perhaps the ladies have better things to do than know about Mobius strips and Copiah County?
I know I know, what COULD be better...?
Fort Clatsop...? Wow, there are plenty of kids from Oregon who would miss that question, no matter how it's pronounced. Cheeky of Ranta to throw that one in there in the Mid-South.
Trojans did not burst under pressure (this time). Halfway through Round One, and now we move to the other side of the bracket. Time surely does fly.
Wow, DT, shades of Cindy Brady on QUESTION THE KIDS! The freezing up, that is, not the pre-game scene of controversy (I choose to believe none of the Brady kids but Jan suffered from bulimia or other anxious disorders that lasted more than one episode, as with Cindy's stuttering).
Mr Akers, happy 2010 and welcome back to KB coverage. In blowouts like that, I'm always sorry the alternate can't tag in. Elena could have only helped the Raleigh-Egypt cause.
