Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

It sounds like the event was a huge success! I am glad that everyone seems to have had a great time. I really hope that I can make it back to Vegas next year, especially if there are auditions again.

Best of luck to all of you who are in the pool!

The groups are posted for the indie music ML. I'm in 113.

Re: Thursday, July 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got FJ in about 15 seconds, but it's a clue that I may have blanked on if I had been under the lights. It was just a matter of picking out L.A. as the TOM.

Re: Wednesday, July 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My only guess for FJ was Caldecott, though I figured that I would be in the wrong time period. I can't say that I have ever heard of the challengers' response. Well, if anybody was ever worthy. I had never heard of Carle, either. I did guess Sendak and my only other thought was Richard Scarry (who ...

Okay, I have deleted my previous comments. The parts that were quoted should be deleted, too.

Sorry for the trouble.

Good point. I totally forgot about her thesis.

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

The seven 4-time winners who didn't make the cut this time are going to be in the next TOC, right? I assume they were notified of this. So I don't understand why Emma would be taking a spot away from a deserving person if that person (and six others) will get the opportunity to play again next year...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Further ruminations: 1. The point about deferred eligibility makes it sound like no one's getting bumped, but that's nonsense. If they're not bumping someone from this pool, that just means they're bumping someone from the next. You can't add in a non-eligible player and not have it affect someone ...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

This also kind of reminds me of KJ not getting to play in a regular ToC. I didn't agree with that decision, either. I liked the UToC, but he shouldn't have gotten a bye into the finals. Anyway, aside from James and Emma the only contestant in this lineup who I have seen play is Josh Hill. Working 2 ...

Re: 2019 TOC Updates

Larry Martin is still on the ToC tracker. Does anyone know how many past contestants were in line between Lindsey and Emma? I'm also curious to see what the cutoff for the ToC after the next one will be, but I think it's only fair that TPTB use the game that airs immediately before the first QF game...

Re: Monday, July 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, wow, geography is my best category but I never in a million years would have gotten that one. It makes sense in hindsight, but I wouldn't have known how to connect the dots.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

My thinking on the drugs question: "sartan sounds like statin. What do statin drugs treat. Ugh, I can't remember, but whatever it is it probably isn't right anyway. I'll say epilepsy." My only other miss was Breakfast at Tiffany's. I've never liked Seinfeld, but the question made me think of Nelson ...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Okay, I have worked at Publix part time on and off for several years, and now that I looked it up I have definitely seen Ritter Sport sold on the international aisle there. But it's not a major enough product here that I was going to remember it.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I way overthought the pop art question. Jasper Johns should have made it easy, but it seemed too obvious. I said Op Art, which was way off the mark. Tory should have been easy as well, but I locked in on "hooligan" and just never considered anything else. I should have paid more attention to the pol...

Thomas Paine on Thursday. I am really surprised that there was no FJ on some pop culture thing that I'm out of touch with, though that may be coming next week.

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Strange result for me yesterday, as I won 9(5)-5(2). I wasn't expecting to have another day with more than 4 correct for the remainder of this season, but I'll take it. The Australia question was a no-brainer for the 3-pointer, but my opponent, a career .264 Geography player, knew it. All I could co...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

That was a brutal set yesterday, but 2 correct is enough to win when your opponent forfeits. I got prison on a complete guess. It was the first thing that came to mind for the title facility of a TV show. I might have gotten Reichstag if I had RTFQ, but for some reason I only thought of U.S. buildin...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

I won with 1 correct yesterday. Thank goodness that the educated guess worked out on Navajo. I saw "Nickelodeon reboot" and locked in on All That. True, I watched All That back in the day and didn't recognize the names, but I thought that they could have been from the later seasons. Math is my best ...
