Pretty sure I heard John say Lizabeth rather than Lisbeth.
It's like "Realtor"!
Yes, it's exactly like that. Although I think they'd probably accept "real-a-tor" because it's such a common mispronunciation. Personally I think they should be a little more strict on proper names.

I expected a reversal on the Lisbeth Salander clue. Pretty sure I heard John say Lizabeth rather than Lisbeth.

FJ seemed teen tournament level.

As an unapologetic Alanis Morissette fan, I was rooting for her red-headed sister to take this game.
Yeah, unfortunately it was like rain on her wedding day.

Re: Tuesday, January 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I hope Steve just decided to write down a 1939 movie when he couldn’t come up with Mr. Smith. At least he didn’t say The Wizard of Oz. I imagine that was the case. As my wife said, if GWTW was the real answer the key word in the clue would definitely have been "loosely." :D I got this FJ right, but...

I assumed it couldn't be movies, but couldn't think of what else it could be so just kept clam.

I just barely avoided the boxes of shame by having stayed at Snowmass when I visited Aspen (a LOT cheaper to stay there instead of in Aspen).
They just aren't going to stump me on any questions related to skiing!

That said, I got that one and Lawrence Welk and that's it.

I thought with a name like "DNA Makes News," it was going to be a current events category, not about something from 1993.
My pre-call was CRISPR.

Well, I liked that FJ and it's probably because I got it right. :D I really think they were shooting for us to think of someone in the royal family who's not a Windsor by blood. I knew Philip was born in Greece, so figured that means he's got less British blood than the other royals who married in, ...

I have always thought they would end his career with some sort of “Alex Invitational” with him bringing back his favorites one last time.
I think we just saw it.

And at this point I'm going to be disappointed if Ken is not named Alex's successor.

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had Panama City down for FJ right from the start, but did have some minor reservations. For some reason my mental image always has Central America oriented more north-south than it actually is. Often the case where macrogeography doesn't line up with microgeography. I know I was a little startled...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Probably the single biggest factor in not doing it live is that would mean it wouldn't be in prime time for the entire country. Actually that factor probably makes it a non-starter. I think it's more likely that a hypothetical "J! Live" would be in prime-time everywhere, because it would air on a d...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A more valid point - just south of 14 million viewers watched the show(s). Possibly 14,000 of them noticed the listings and did the math. Possibly 1400 of them cared about being spoiled. OK, that's three points. Increase my guestimates by 10X, and it still isn't worth the hoop jumping for a 0.01% g...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The other solution would have been to do it live. I’d love that, but I’ve heard that they spend 15-20 minutes sometimes with contestants’ backs to the board before finally adjudicating. Sports refereeing has a constant tension: Get it right or get it done. People complain about “lengthy” delays in ...

It was annoying that ABC spoiled how many matches this tournament would last before it had started airing.
Huh? How so?
