Re: Season 37 Preemptions

I watch on KSDK. They're apparently showing some very recent repeats in the 12PM time slot (sometimes, it's even the current day's episode) So it turns out that I will be able to catch the 9/18 episode on 9/21. This worked better in theory than in practice. Noon today I got one of Jason. Z's games,...

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

See, to me, the vowel of "pear" and "air" is the same as the vowel of "bet" or "pen," just with an R finishing it. Are there any syllables with the vowel of "air" in your pronunciation that don't end with R? How about "ham" or "yam"? And those are the same vowels to me as in "hat" and "bat"! Not to...

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If they pronounce them differently, how? Do they say "merry" like "mrry", Cleveland Brown style? Because Berry Gordy has never been called Brry Gordy, that I can find. Late to the party, but I pronounce berry (and merry) with the vowel of "bet" or "pen", barry (or marry) with the vowel of "bat" or ...

With all of the Lou Brock tributes don't forget to mock the Cubs for trading him. Brock and St. Louis won the World Series in 1964 while it took a bunch more decades for the Cubs to win one.

Maybe this goes here. MLB will be celebrating Jackie Robinson Day on August 28 this year (instead of the customary April 15). I'm still not convinced there'll be a season.

The NFL’s Washington franchise is retiring the “Redskins” team name.
I'll take advantage of one of my last chances to use an old joke:

Why do some people want to change the name of the Washington Redskins?

Because they feel that the term "Washington" is offensive.

Thank you for your long years of service and for the enjoyment you have provided/have facilitated providing.

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

More on the "Landmarks" clue: The height of the Gateway Arch pretty much pins the clue. You could add the year, decade, or century if you were really worried about pinning it - or go on the fly, and see if someone else comes up with a monument that's 630 feet within a reasonable tolerance that also ...

At least one player in LL84 who reads this thread missed the Midseason Classic despite my PSA, so I'm bumping for a little additional bandwidth.

One interesting note: the contestant coordinator was wearing blue medical-type gloves during the snippet they showed before FJ.

Re: Fun with GSN's "Master Minds"

I can easily see "nucular" being accepted orally, but not as a written response to FJ!. I guess my question is: does a common mispronunciation result in the spelling becoming "correct" in a written context? I'd hate to think that the answer is "yes", but I realize that my views are extreme.
