I guess it's 4/5 for me, even though I dispute our fair judge's ruling that India is acceptable.

Well, if you answered India, I'm fine with changing your scorer to 3/5. I aim to please!

3/5 for me because I am positive "Gah, what is the name of the guy from the Enbrel commercials" wouldn't count.

Knew I couldn"t carry on from such a good start but still pleased with 2/5.   Siam/Thailand and Alcott were my only correct.  Montessori was obvious after the answer was announced and I said dwarf star as science is not a strong suit.  Finally I said Tiger Woods even though I thought he was too young - just figured it had to be golf but couldn't process other golfers through my brain quick enough.

Can I sit at the cool kids' table, too? Please! Please! Please!

Well, I guess since you WANT to, okay. I've put a chair at that CK table for you. Just know the Nerd Table, where I am sitting, is much more fun.

Sorry, you are stuck at the overly crowded Cool Kids smart table. There is room at the Nerd table though, only four of us here.

I'm 66 years old, and at family reunions, I still sit at the kids' table.  But it's okay, 'cause I'm the "Cool Aunt"!

We're having Gatorade and grape juice later.

Isn't grape juice bad for the dogs? There are dogs here, right?

Thanks to a completely random argument with my dad last week I pulled Phil Mickelson out of my ass for 5/5!

🤔 Well, since others are getting the credit, I'll take it as well. 4/5 for me.

That must have been terribly uncomfortable, having an adult man up your rear end. Good thing you pulled him out. He is probably glad about it as well.

4/5 with 1 *.  Sports is not a strong suit, and while I figured golf, I think Tiger Woods may be the only golfer I can actually name.

5/5 and one *. Golf fan here! We watched the US Open plus saw Phil Mickelson selling Enbrel on commercials. Lucky for me this question came up so close to the Open. 

I said Siam instead of Thailand because of the year. I hope that's correct too.

I remember Alex saying that either one would have been acceptable, so you’re good.

3/5!  Perfect week until Thursday.

Me too. I said red dwarf for Thursday, and that guy from the Enbrel ads for Friday. 

Thursday & Friday FJs have not been my friends for season 37 thus far.

Yeay @Toothbrush! It's so good to have you back. I hope tomorrow and the next day treat you better this week.

And now, announcing the winner of Week 2 ... @opus. Because it's well deserved and because I can. Congratulations, my friend. Wear your Winner's Mantle with pride. It only lasts a week.

Is it for lowest score? It’s for lowest score, isn’t it?

1/5

Thats 2/15 for me for the season if you’re scoring at home. But no one’s scoring at home, right?

Oh crap, @saber5055 is scoring at home.

WEEK 3 • Sept. 28, 2020 — TWO asterisk *
* 11. On The Old Map. On the U.N. website’s map of the world in 1945, these 2 initials of a member state appear 13 times on continental Africa. *
* 12. The Great Lakes. An 1855 poem gives us this Native American name for the 1 Great Lake not known to us today by a Native American word or a tribe’s name.  *
13. Historic Figures. In a 1912 telegram to his wife, he said, “Am feeling fine. Have bullet in chest, but…talked for hour and half after being shot.”
14. Literary Terms. In medieval times it was a long tale of a hero like Gisli or Njall; today it means any story of epic length.
15. Architecture. Begun in the 1170s on former marshland, it has been called a “perfect imperfection” & a “legendary mistake.”

Oh!  I forgot I got an asterisk!  That makes me feel a little better about the 2/5.

Overall:  8/15  (0 asterisks).

If I have to keep track of overall or year to date scores, I'm in trouble. I barely keep track of TS correct answers and FJs on scraps of paper all over my desk.

You don't unless you want to. I record the totals on my Season 37 Excel sheet. Anyone who wants to know his/her total as the season goes on can ask me and I will probably tell.

2/5, again. Was 0-for until Thursday, which I guess is a better way of going 2/5 than getting Monday and Tuesday right and getting all charged up for a big week, then tanking Wed-Fri!

The title "Monday-Tuesday Correct And All Charged Up For A Big Week" (and then tanking) can be shortened to ""The Saber Playbook."

I do it that way because it's easier for me to track.  Also I'm a control freak, so I like knowing my score.  Also, retired accountant/financial analyst, so keeping score is pretty easy for me.  Doing it the way I do means I don't have to work out yet another damned excel spreadsheet.
