Everyone talks about playing when the chips are down, but what about when they are up… at your mouth? From the 2017 Lisgar Reach-style tournament, this round 6 match has Lisgar CI “B” against Glebe CI. Moderating and production by Ben Smith.
- A pretty sloppy round, production wise. The buzzer reset button was definitely on the fritz, everyone (except me) was eating from crinkly bags of chips, and I was slowing down through a combination of sleepiness and anticipating lunch.
- The team question about movie remakes was poorly worded. Michelle Pfeiffer played Catwoman in Batman Returns, for example. The answers were implying the common character, but the questions were looking for a film title.
- I’m no birthstone expert, but to clarify the error that was raised: February’s stone (the question) is amethyst; garnet (the answer on paper) is for January. Neither team answered any combination of those, though, so the score wasn’t affected.
- Dunkirk is at 51° N. Saint Boniface (Winnipeg) is at 50°N. I guess Dunkirk is a more northerly francophone city. It is also more northerly than Hearst and Sept-Iles.
Thanks for listening!
