A group is picked every two weeks or so and their top songs do battle.

A previous SDMB thread, so you can see how it goes:
Please label indirect questions "IQ," and when you've...
Yeah, so I was reading *Daniel Deronda* by the notoriously ugly George Eliot (according to Virginia Woolf and Henry James). James was not far off when, I think he applied the words "loose baggy monsters" to Eliot's novels. And he was such a bitchy...
...lives within 500 miles of his or her birthplace.
Give the first word that pops into your mind when I say...
B - June 2012, July 2012
C - July 2012
D - June 2012
E - May 2012
This is like mastermind or whatever with words. I have chosen a word and replaced all the letters with blanks. Look, there it is!
You have to find out what the word is. In order to do that you must post a word with the same number...
In this game: come up with an answer, to which the next person names the category said answer might plausibly be from. After which they give their own answer, and so on.
What would this stadium look like? IOW: how drastic a hitter or pitcher park is it?
Distance to outfield line (ft)
327/356/391/440 (foul line/straight to corner outfield/alley/dead center)
Distance to back of stadium (ft)
I understand why soccer is so popular in the 3rd World, due to lack of resources for more complicated games. But why does its popularity persist in the 1st World? I assume it started because they brought the game back from their colonial possessions.
Suppose that the Conference Championship games went the other way, and the Super Bowl went the other way (if the NFC won in RL, the AFC wins the counter factual SB). How are legacies changed?
I know: Brady wins late in his career, not early,...
I thought it would be funny to think up the most upsetting "personal ads" -- like for Tinder or whatever the hell people do to sell themselves off like prostitutes.
I guess there could be real ones that are funny also.
I'm kind of tired of...
Besides "nigger", name an offensive term for black people
How much longer would it take to recover from tearing all 4 cruciate ligaments v. Both tendons and menisci?
If they moved to the SEC or ACC, or even Big 10, what realignment dominoes would that set off?
Congrats to Piazza and Griffey! Griffey broke Seaver's % record. (3 votes shy of 100%)
I once saw a chart showing a progression of the way players would change positions. Anyone else ever see it? I believe it starts with 3B or LF, ending w/1B.
OK, I had a brainwave and chose to try it out. I'll start with a partial sentence (a question), which can be completed by the next poster. Said poster answers the question they just completed, then supplies their own partial sentence... hopefully,...
5 stranded castaways...
SHAMELESSLY ripped off from a board that shall not be named. Looked fun, though, so here we go!
Name a category that includes at least 5 items. Next person has to name 5 things in the category (NO GOOGLING, PEOPLE), and then post another...
There was a team that had consecutive road games, both on East Coast I believe. The team, the Raiders I believe, stayed on East Coast to prepare for second game. Why don't more teams do this?
I'm you knew many 3 sport athletes in HS, and maybe even college if you were at at smaller school. Can you think of any athlete who played 3 sports? (X-country and the two seasons of track are 1 sport)
Says it all, motherfuckers! I can't really start this by myself, but it seems amusing enough. At least more than this Frodo Donolvan shit I don't know anything about, to me.
Truth or dare motherfuckers!
I'm still trying to figure out the rules of this game. I'm not ashamed to be thinking of Rachel Weisz in the movie *Chain Reaction* with that dude.
Action: Lock one of the sliding glass doors on a condo common area, when someone is outside...
I think it would be better for baseball's draft to be more like other sports, with it's draft in the off-season. In this case, the college off-season. Would moving the draft back three weeks really be detrimental to MLB? The only bad side I see is...
If I realigned the NBA before this season, the 1st rd matchups would've been:
If you wanted to set parameters for a search on their sites, how would you go about that?
Let's say ESPN wanted to try the following schedule rules for 2016
1.Every stadium visited
2.Every team gets a road game
3.No match ups duplicated
Are there enough Sundays and Wednesdays to pull it off?
When teams move catchers to new defensive positions, which foul line do they move hi up, and how far? IOW- 3B or 1B, or corner OF.
According to a trade calculator I found, the #1 pick is worth 3,000 points. How much are: the starting, back-up and #3 QB worth?
To make the trades I tried worth it, the values needed are:
525 for the #3
1683 for the backup
2256 for the...
I'll write a haiku,
Use the previous haiku's
Last line to start yours.
That one's hard to start with, so I'll make an easier one.
OK, when chate flatlines, we sometimes get into this thing where one person posts a random (usually) 4-letter word, the the next poster changes one letter (and one letter only) to create a new word. This thread might sink like a stone, but eh.
The words have to start with the letters, in the order they are given.
Post the sentence, and give another 5-letter challenge.
Here's the first one:
E P N T L
Would this be a reasonable strategy:
For each round, have two positional priorities, the lesser 1st rd priority is the higher 2nd round priority, etc.
Back in the day, it moved around quite a bit, though Yankee Stadium was a popular venue. Do you think we'll ever get back to that, or has that shipped sailed?
The Coyotes are worth $225M, and the Raptors are worth $920M. So that's 1.15B. How much would it cost to make Key Arena NBA worthy/replace, and put in NHL legal ice surface?
Yeah, so this is like how I wake up in the AM and go to sleep at night. Not trying to find anything, but I like to think of funny things to say.
Don't try very hard or at all, they just kind of are part of my inner monologue.
It's that time again, the greatest sporting rivalry taking place over the next few weeks.
And gives me a great opportunity to make fun of spitz and AllWalker shortly before the next great English batting collapse
Pigeon Prophecy: 5-0 to...
This has to be one of the most incredulous stories I have heard.
Four players of the current Australian Test Cricket team currently losing the series 2-0 in India have been deselected from the team on the grounds of...
wait for it
Aside from the Super Mario series, probably the class of game I've spent the most time playing has been the urban simulation, mostly after the SimCity fame. I was first introduced to SimCity via the original's port to the SNES, but later cut my...
Pretty amazing. I suppose the outtakes would show multiple contusions and/or compound fractures:
Read Internet message boards. Sip every time somebody mentions that TV Tropes is addictive.
Choose one of the three, then give three of your own for the next poster.
I'll start with...
Ross, Chandler, or Joey?
Hi, I'm looking for people to playtest a simple game I have been working out. It should adapt easily to play on the forums, and may even amuse the onlookers:
Pigsty to Palace
A multi-player game of trading and ethics
Happy Independence Day to all my American friends. This isn't terribly difficult, but it's fun:
