Re: TD 435 - Narrowing Nine (Q1-Q2 revealed)

I did not intend for defunct or relocated teams to be used, but leaving out "current" meant a poorly pinned clue and led me to accept Expos. I am too lazy to list all of the other possible answers that I did not plan to accept and that nobody used. You did say that the number of correct responses s...

Re: TD 434 - Another Short Quiz - Final Scores

Fixed. I remember hearing that the owners misspelled the name when registering the horse, and couldn't change it, is that right? So American Pharoah it was. Something like that. In reviewing Wikipedia, it looks like the story has changed in the telling, so we may never know for certain exactly what...

Fun fact: That's not how you spell American Pharoah, notwithstanding the correct spelling of pharaoh.

Re: TD 430 - Back to School (Q's 1-9 revealed)

I looked up who sang Charlie Brown just the other day. Then forgot it again. Just couldn't remember it for this TD. Then I scored better with the answer I gave instead. Thanks, short term memory lapse!

A massive sheep and two singletons. I'm "40 Year Old Virgin" away from being in the lead. In other words, middle of the pack.

Re: TD 426 - Grab Bag (all questions revealed)

A week after finishing on the podium, I was one point out of last place heading into the final question. Alas, a singleton foiled my chances at an anti-podium finish.

I took the Joanne challenge and had the $400 name as the possible top box although I did consider the right guy. The one I dismissed was $600 in recalling the space in her name to think she was out.
I took the challenge, too, even though it wasn't directed at me, and got the right guy.

Re: TD 426 - Grab Bag (Q1-Q3 revealed)

Moved my drop to question 2 at the last minute. Good thing, because the answer I had was wrong. Shows you how much I've been paying attention to the democratic debates. Went through the lyrics of Bohemian Rhapsody several times before settling on Jack Hughes's new team. Surprised more people didn't ...

Re: TD 425: O-H-I-O (Final Standings Posted!)

Find a wheelhouse theme and get a little lucky, and you too could finish on the podium! My second podium to go with many, many results firmly in the "also-ran" category.

Thanks for a great TD!

I'm curious if you would've accepted "Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse" as an acceptable response for Q5. I was tempted but realized I did not have a strong argument to back me up. Is there an "official" list of MCU films?
Yes, there is a list. No, Into the Spiderverse is not on it.

Re: TD 425: O-H-I-O (Questions 1-6 Revealed)

Ohio law has a very specific definition of "city": a municipality with a population of at least 5,000. Municipalities that are not cities are villages. Townships are unincorporated areas, and not municipalities at all. The population of Rome, Ohio, at the last census was 94. This is provided for inf...

The 23rd MCU movie, Spider-Man: Far From Home is being released in the U.S. on Tuesday, July 2. According to Box Office Mojo, it was released last weekend in China, Japan, and Hong Kong. Not sure what that says about when it would become a correct answer, but probably before the reveal is finished i...

Re: Messages will return to Final

I'm betting they would not do digital editing, for legal reasons. If they are known to have ever digitally edited anything that a contestant has written in FJ, that might open the door to the possibility of (false) allegations that something has been altered if there's a dispute over what someone h...

Re: Messages will return to Final

I know that during James's run TPTB changed the rules to prevent people from using Final to send greetings or messages. The ruling is that any such message will now be considered part of the contestant's response (which likely will make the response incorrect). There's an easy workaround. Write you...

While I'd love to see someone who could realistically host for another 35 years (comfort in stability), I certainly wouldn't mind LeVar Burton. If anyone deserves to be the host of Jeopardy!, it's him.
Can he really read the clues with his visor on?
He now has ocular implants.
