Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

Sorry guys -- I'm in and out of meetings all afternoon. My schedule is clear for tomorrow, though, so we'll get the results then.

The good news is that there is still time for you stragglers to enter.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

So .... who's around this late on a Wednesday night? We'll wait until tomorrow to get into it, but let's get some of the preliminaries out of the way.

Let's start by introducing you to our judges:



Simon, Randy, Paula, and that new chick! Can you think of a more politically aware bunch?

I was hoping for the panel of The McClaughlin Group, kickin' it old style, with Hunt, Germond, Kondracke, Buchanan, and Father John himself!

I think I am coming down with something, so I may/may not participate. Don't let JasonF and The Bus cheat me out of my glory.

Wrong! You were hoping for a Tucker Carlson/Paul Begala Crossfire matchup!

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

Some preliminary statistics: We have 30 players. 13 of them took advantage of the Google clause. One person took advantage of it four times, earning themselves a 15-point cummulative penalty. Was it worth it? Wait and see.

We will have lots of pictures in this thread. One picture comes from a website that sells pogo sticks and pogo stick accessories "for core athletes." Everyone remember that one for the next round of Sports Sheep.

I'll be using a few PG-13 pictures. Don't worry -- I'll spoiler them and flag them NSFW. But my wife saw one on the hard drive and asked why I was downloading porn.

And with that, we will adjourn until the morning, when more people will be around.

Did she ask if you needed some alone time with Chief Justice Earl Warren?

All I will say is that Benjamin Harrison looks quite fetching in a Speedo.

Shouldn't that be a 10 point penalty?

Edit: Damn, I misread. I thought it incremented by one each time, in fact it doubles.

I came really close to googling 4-5x thinking I could pretty much assure myself a unique in those cases, but decided it wasn't the most sporting thing to do, so I only used it twice

I am pretty sure I should have used the Google route as some of my answers are bad or I only knew 1 or 2. This is going to get ugly for me.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

I tried to use Google on one of the questions but I couldn't find anything, so I went with a wrong, but possibly good, sheep answer.

Not surprisingly, I'm one of them It definitely wasn't worth it either on question #1 because I still could only get a shitty answer out of it.

You couldn't find an answer on google? Do you suck at googling?

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

Stop looking at your nude pictures of the late Earl Warren and get this going.
