There are a handful of Polish composers where they might give you the name and expect you to know the nationality: Paderewski...
I found 15 mentions of Paderewski in the Archive. His greatest significance, for trivia purposes, is that he was briefly Prime Minister of Poland.

Re: LearnedLeague 76 - Official Thread

No offense, but Diplomacy?!? Part of the beauty of that game is that there is no element of chance since there are no cards or dice. I knew absolutely nothing about the game other than the name and that it exists :) It's a great way for 7 friends to kill a whole day their friendship . You'd probabl...

I watched the Googol/Gogol clue on a television that cut off the "1" after the animation. So I saw zero to the hundredth power, which is zero, so who the heck is Zer?

Description of the Beaufort Scale from 1831. I was helped this show by three questions appearing on this show that I had just watched. Just to be clear, I'm not implying anything by this. With all those shows, just by the sheer limited universe of what can be reasonably asked, the same answers coul...

She's supposed to be the youngest Mrs., but Mindy Kaling is younger.

Another fun Frank moment was the obvious distaste with which he responded, "What is Twilight?" My 22-year-old daughter got a kick out of that since she read those books back in the day and is now fatally embarrassed by that period of her life. I remember a Teen Tournament contestant, maybe from 201...

Could the Nebraska clue have been a last-minute substitution?

If you google George Levick and penguins, you can read about the "bizarre" activities he discovered. I didn't post the link because of the sentivities of a specific board member.

Art Fleming, unlike Alex Trebek, never struck me as someone who might know most of the correct responses before looking at his notes. Back in those days, I thought that Hugh Downs or Steve Allen would've been better hosts. Art Fleming was the host of College Bowl when I played. A former stuntman, h...

Unless you subscribe to the Zombie Reagan theory.

Nick's Gangsta/Gangster moment was a jumping off-point for a discussion of different spellings of the N-word.

I would have asked a BMS for (Karl) Malone when there's another NBA great named Moses Malone. I wouldn't have accepted Mighty Ducks but that's not the worst judgement call they ever made. For Nomophobia, I would have used a clue like,"Do I have to listen to my parents at the dinner table now?" That ...

It probably won't come up in Jeopardy but there is both a soccer player and a volleyball player named Carli Lloyd on the U.S. National team. Does the latter play on a team called the Houston Dash? No she doesn't. There was nothing wrong with the clue. As I said, it is unlikely Jeopardy will have a ...
