-All questions in W17 and the playoffs will come from me
-I'll post questions here and email them to the group. Make sure you DO NOT REPLY ALL if answering by email

-Send answers to ryantfriedman (gmail, and don't forget the middle initial T) or private message here

Some of these questions seem a little too narrowly focused. What is the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Can we at least get an explanation of what a "mother sauce" is? That might give me a shot at guessing the opinion of a single person I've never heard of.

Just to be sure, #4 DOES NOT include the X-Men, Spider Man, and Fantastic Four franchises, right?

Is it out of line to say you can look up the MCU but not the actors? Maybe those 2 things are impossible to separate on a search?

I mean they're some of the most popular movies of all-time so of all the things I don't mind giving hints on, this would not be anywhere near the top.

So, no explanation of the term "mother sauce" then? Is that actually an industry term that I've somehow never heard of? Or is it something made up by the person who made the list?

I think it's one of the fundamental sauces in cooking that most (all?) other sauces can trace back to or be a variation of. I'll also allow a hint that the guy's name doesn't sound, like, Hawaiian or Russian or Ecuadorian or anything.

OR YOU COULD JUST STOP TRYING TO BE SO FANCY AND NAME A WOMAN FROM THAT SHOW THAT WE ALL WATCH RELIGIOUSLY.

I'll chime here. Yes. There is an accepted list within the culinary world. However it's not likely going to be knowledge you pick up from The Pioneer Woman or Super Southern Easy Mealz on Wheelz

One thing about having the kid around while I consider Swampcrash answers. She alternates between insisting on answers I should give, and mocking the ones I actually submit.
