Re: Familiar face on Millionaire

Ken's part 2 was today.

Oy. You'd think getting none wrong would afford him to come away with more than 100k, but it was not to be.

Nothing came to me on the Latin one except a too-late head slap.

Re: Reretaken Down

A couple years ago I had my most unusual Vegas solitaire deal: the opening layout displayed a spade 7-card straight flush. Well I think today tops that. I only exposed one ace, but I built it all the way to the king. Has that ever happened to anyone else?

Re: Putting a stop to ties

My option wasn're there: whoever wagered more in FJ wins. Why? Because that means the lesser wager could have won outright by wagering more, and chose not to.

Artificial horizon. An excellent guess. Wrong, but excellent. You seemed to be on the right track at least. Actually, Bamaman, your guess seems on-trackiest. I too had ejection seat (after briefly considering Scotch-Irish), which I think gives me a negative week of less than 3 gets. How did I not n...

I'm usually pretty liberal about accepting song title variants, if actual lyrics and the actual title are included, but for some reason accepting "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday" didn't feel right here... I concur. I've never eaten at a Good-bye Ruby Tuesday. Never even seen one. Google doesn't seem to be ab...

I've sometimes had this little fantasy about how I *wish* I might react if I got on the show (won't ever happen, but I can dream...) and hit a DD in a total wheelhouse category such as "The Big Bands"... DD graphic comes up, Alex starts to ask what I'd like to bet, and I quickly reach into my pocke...

I was surprised he missed Jobe/Job after cruising through the baseball category. I've never heard of the guy. Should I know him? He's the guy who came up with Tommy John surgery. He also died in March, so his name would've been semi-fresh when this was taped, but I guess he's not a hardcore fan. I'...

Wow, I must be getting old. I imagined I heard Alex tell Emily she was close with her "Nuremberg" guess in the non-Oscar category, thereby giving her opponents a free rebound.

Instaget FJ. It's one of the greatest series ever made and I loved it. "One of"? End to end, its execution surpasses anything I've ever watched. I considered myself lucky to have gotten to binge it over the last couple months of Sundays. THAT BEING SAID... I haven't seen the Sopranos yet, so who kn...

I wanted to participate in Hands Across America, but was vacationing on the Maine coast at the time. I figured with my luck I'd be last in line and some yutz on the Pacific coast would start a game of "Crack the Whip."

I can't wait to take that tunnel from Anchorage, but I'm not sure if I want to go to Russia, Japan, or Canada. Sure hope they have gas stations in those tunnels. And rest stops and restaurants.

This adds more fuel to the fire that J! has become a partisan outlet. When has there ever been a category celebrating a relatively new Republican senator?
Perhaps they will when there's one worth celebrating. :?

Ironic that only three College Stadiums (Stadia?) are asked about and two are USC.
