After last week’s challenge, perhaps you should fear next week’s Ultimate Challenge to decide it all.  But before we can get there, we need to get through the next to last challenge.

However, let us not get ahead of ourselves.  First the recap.

Four more tries gang (including today)!  Does this mean you are out of it?  Absolutely not.  Even if you have never played this summer, there is still time.  You see, 4 x 1pt for each win would mean you could have a maximum score of 4 going forward.  And you are . . . → Read More: Six Degrees Summer Tourney Week 8

Interesting week, folks.

First, the trash talk of Mags and Daniel spilled over to Twitter.  Then, they each threw some tough punches at the game (and at each other).  And for part of the week, it looked like Mags would finally make it onto the leaderboard.

This week was a little light on entries, in fact we just had two.  But the two that entered seem to have a little rivalry going.  Mags vs. Daniel.  As Mags said, “I can’t lose to Daniel, we went to University together.”  While the committee would love to help Mags out, . . . → Read More: Six Degrees Summer Tourney Week #5

Now that’s more like it.  After getting beat down by y’all, the quizmaster came back and decided to be mean.  Sure it was Ingmar Bergman’s birthday last week, but it still wasn’t nice to make you link Ice Cube and Vin Diesel to him.  But one intrepid soul actually did, giving . . . → Read More: Six Degrees Summer Tourney Week #4

I’ve been thinking about Jessica Lange.

She may be the remake queen.  She played Fay Wray’s part in the 70′s version of King Kong, was in Cape Fear and did TV movies of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Streetcar Named Desire, Sybil, and Grey Gardens.

Ah, nothing better in life than being a xenophobic moron.  Thanks to Mags for pointing out that this is not America’s favorite game, but one that is loved globally.  So apologies, to my more enlightened readers.  Now that I the I know the game is truly international, I declare this week:
