Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Chalk me up as an FDR miss for taking the Pavlov bait, and a) being too intellectually lazy to suss out who preceded FDR- I don't have these memorized in order, but would have got there by remembering Hoover Dam, and b) not reading the actual meaning of the quote to realize it was definitely a para...

Re: Thursday, January 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The headshake at young people today was crickets heard for Fibber McGee’s partner. The Christie play also going TS surprised me more as that appeared in a clue last season. Watch the show people. It helps. The FJ! category had me eliminate the place that showed up on December 18th. I then told myse...

Re Final Jeopardy, A.T. remarks that one is easy and the other "difficult". I say not difficult, maybe to him, another needless comment.

What a great tournament and final. Congrats to all especially the three finalists, so impressive! Their composure, personalities and knowledge was something to behold. It's heartening to watch young enthusiastic contestants play the game as well as they did.

LOTF was an involuntary precall; still I can't quite believe they dipped into that well yet again... :roll: I suppose Maggie was thinking of a different kind of shell. Glad nobody guessed All Quiet on the Western Front... ;) That last Remarque was uncalled for. That last Remarque was very clever an...

Re: Friday, September 28, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Because besides the fact that he's generally not very good with them, it's at least a bit unfair because even his muddled accent today could have been a tip-off to one or more of the contestants. :evil: (Poll request for those who got the clue based on Alex's reading?). Hmm. I'm not sure whether I ...

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wonder how far Ryan is going to take his streak now that he's been given a do-over and taken good advantage of it. This win moves him well into the top 100 all-time in regular-season winnings, and he seems highly motivated to do more. He gives too many incorrect responses in the main game, in my op...

Hope Tracey got good deals on her travel arrangements as she gifted David an extra $1000 that he could have spared. Tempted to disagree with this because Stratton's Dilemma and the fact that it was an exact two-thirds game. That's fine and I see your point. To me BRASS INSTRUMENTS seems narrow with...

Re: Monday, April 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Maybe age was a factor in getting FJ today. I'm old enough to remember when the Kennedys were in office. Even so, there has been so much written over the years about Bobby Kennedy as AG: Acting as a chief advisor to his brother during the Cuban Missile Crisis, Hoffa, dealing with the Mafia, his bat...

Re: Final Fleming Episode

Wow, thanks for posting this. I enjoyed it as you might imagine (from my moniker,misspelled as I believe you pointed out). I had forgotten how fast Art spoke. Also I disagree with the assumption that Art might not have known many of the answers/questions, on what is that based? As far as AT is conce...

The question referred to the BOOK mentioned.
I think A.T. jumped the gun in accepting the Stars & Stripes answer, he could have asked "be more specific". Just another blunder.

Yes, this was a memorable game with great contestants worthy of a Champion's final and what a comeback for Buzzy. I wonder if his tieless attire had anything to do with it. BTW, I think Buzzy would be an acceptable successor to AT (and he was warned)

I want to add my congratulations to Ms. Scarlett. This game was a classic IMHO and you performed admirably and enthusiastically. You played the game as it should be played including the countenance before your answer was revealed in FJ. Hooray!

All this talk about Margaret Truman brings to mind the much debated question, "What president's daughter wrote the best seller, "Murder in the White House"?
