Re: Questions about getting tickets, and other stuff

I'm having trouble confirming my PM is sending. I did look up on Google maps our whereabouts of 12 December, and we arrived at the studio at 0935 and left at 1601. Airtight alibi for any crimes committed on the East coast that day. I thought it was 4PM in my earlier message, but padded it to 4:30. ...

Re: Questions about getting tickets, and other stuff

I actually got a call back from Lee saying that the taping was "changed from 12:00 to 2:00" and to arrive by 1:30.

Re: Questions about getting tickets, and other stuff

I would say, "be prepared for you to be told 'your tickets are for 2:15' when you call for confirmation". As of today, the situation is still clear as mud. The confirmation line says that there is no taping today (1/17) but does not have any other clarifications. The 800 number recording says that ...

Re: Questions about getting tickets, and other stuff

This seems like a good thread for this question. During the discussion about Alex's surgery and the change of taping schedule, I checked the J! web site and noticed that January 24 showed tapings at 11 AM and 12 PM. Based on the availability of a ridiculously cheap round trip and the ease of reusing...

Re: Final Fleming Episode

Also, is it just me, or is the Final Jeopardy! music about a half-step lower than it normally was? I've heard someone say that the pitch did get a little lower on later Fleming episodes. I know I've seen other 70s and 80s game show episodes where the music would be slightly lower pitched. Most like...

Re: Monday, January 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Btw, it's supposed to be "ZEER-o-eth", not "ZEE-roth", right? Have I been pronouncing it wrong all this time? You were correct. I giggled a little at it. I've always pronounced it "ZEE-rowth" (two syllables, second one rhymes with "both"). Alex pronounced it "ZEE-rawth" (second syllable rhyming wit...

Re: Friday, January 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Loved Brandon's wager!

I wasn't optimistic about the FJ! category, but I actually solved the clue. It seems as if there have been a lot of clues about superheroes lately (including in today's game), so my first instinct was to think about non-superhero comics.

Re: Wednesday, December 27, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The spate of...inconsistent...FJ! wagering continues with Ami risking $1000 (less taxes) in real cash money for no reason. It didn't cost her, so whatever, I guess. The Hermitage seems like something I have probably heard about but apparently didn't make a dent in my consciousness.

One for the judges - pit master instead of pit boss? My ex-husband was a casino dealer for three years, and I never, ever, ever heard a pit boss referred to as a pit master during that time or my other trips to Las Vegas, so my ruling would be ooh, sorry. I'm sure I saw some of those commercials (I...

Re: Tuesday, December 19, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought "Stars and Stripes" was used often enough that I'd have accepted it, but I can see that going either way, really. "Scrooge" should definitely not have been accepted, but I also didn't hear that she pronounced it that way. The difference between Scrooge and Scrooged is easy to miss if you'...

Survived yesterday with a 1(2)-1(2) tie (we both got Sam Hill and Principia). I was close on a couple of others--said "interference" without "pass" and "Frankfurt-am-Rhein". But my favorite thing about checking results this morning is that, as long as I don't forfeit tomorrow, I've clinched non-rele...

I wanted to add my voice to the chorus of congratulations.

FWIW, I didn't think yo...

Instaget. Also precalled during the music that someone would guess Berlin for the other one. They didn’t. (Yes, I know that’s totally the wrong place for Berlin but if you’re not that good at German geography it’s not a horrible guess.). Then, while opening this thread, precalled that very few boar...
