I didn't recognize Reese Witherspoon. She looks suspiciously younger.
She's supposed to be the youngest Mrs., but Mindy Kaling is younger.

If you've read any of the Alice books, she doesn't encounter any children from England like her.

Re: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

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.

I got FJ, but I was remembering the lyrics to the song performed by Nancy Sinatra.

Re: Final Fleming Episode

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...

Last semester, I mentioned Tecumseh's curse to our team. But it did end with Reagan.
Unless you subscribe to the Zombie Reagan theory.

Re: J! in the Media

Nick's Gangsta/Gangster moment was a jumping off-point for a discussion of different spellings of the N-word. My daughter has been assigned the YA novel Avalon High by Meg Cabot for her college class in Arthurian stories. The book contains this passage: My parents aren't like other parents. For one...

There is even a case to be made that Chevrolet's bowtie emblem is a stylized version of the cross on the Swiss flag. This is one of those things that you see every day of your life but never really think about. Yeah, what the heck is that thing? This story says the Chevrolet bowtie logo was cribbed...

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 ...

If anybody here got Moscow, I'd love to know what led you to it.
I thought it was common trivia knowledge Moscow considered itself the Third Rome.
I always think of Germany considering itself the Third Something.

While it is a port, it appears as though the major port is actually Bremerhaven, which does lie on the Black Sea.
That's where I messed up! I thought Germany lost all that territory at the end of World War II.

In that Franciscan category, how are you supposed to get Grey? The only thing I can think of is by knowing that Greyfriars is a thing. But other than that, I don't see anything in the clue that helps. Hey Bobby-- From the habits they once wore, a Franciscan order of Britain & Ireland is known as th...

Note to self to commit "Hugo" to memory, that one's definitely come up in another recent game. If I don't KNOW the answer, I worry that Hugo might be negbait and it's actually the Nebula they're looking for. The archive suggests this is highly unlikely, but I still worry. The Hugos are voted by fan...
