Re: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

As someone born and raised in the capital of Saskatchewan, the response of "Manitoba" annoys me no end.

Re: Thursday, July 28, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

So there are no more ties allowed in Jeopardy! ? When did that happen? Cheap-ass move on the part of Sony. They did it soon after (and presumably in response to) Arthur Chu's run. I don't know if they did it out of cheapness or stupidity. Arthur certainly cost them some money by betting to tie when...

Re: Thursday, June 23, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That first Daily Double about "Presto" was just way too familiar. I guess nine years is a respectable amount of time to wait before recycling a clue, though. Imagine the panic in the writers' room if they announced even a 5-year minimum requirement for recycling. :shock: Last time they made this fa...

Re: Wednesday, June 8, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm assuming that "The Seven Years' War" would be an acceptable response instead of "French & Indian War" so I'm giving myself that one. We call it the 7YW up here, and the Battle of the Plains of Abraham was fought in Quebec.

Bad bet, Randi. In fact, probably the worst possible bet. She should have hung around here first.

Re: Tuesday, December 29, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Suppose the clue asked for a Canadian province and the desired response was Yukon. Someone knowledgeable might get it wrong because they never considered it as a possibility. In a show hosted by a Canadian, I somehow doubt that there would be a clue that refers to Yukon as a province. Alex would ta...

Re: Tuesday, December 29, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It really doesn't seem worth it to do some quick math in your head and wager correctly, does it? For some reason I thought the question excluded Collins because he didn't go down onto the moon, so I went with Aldrin. Knowing the female pilot would have helped, of course. I feel extra bad about miss...

Johnny will have to bet less tentatively on DDs and avoid making stupid FJ wagers like today's, or I don't think we'll be seeing him play in 2016.

Re: Friday, October 16, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't get the hate on the FJ! clue. Sure, you can argue about whether "The" is part of the full name of the team, but the Angels are the only team with even one true redundancy. So why didn't they say "only team with one true redundancy" or some variant thereof? The most obvious redundancy is tha...

Re: Friday, October 16, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

WLT Alexander the Great or Chicago at $400? The first referenced 'Macedonian leader'. Nine times out of ten, that's Alexander(Otherwise, it would be his father, Philip, but clues about him tend to mention his son). The Chicago clue mentioned State Street, which is pretty much a giveaway(like Park A...

So, uh, Josh buddy, you couldn't have dressed up a little? One polo shirt is an accident. Two in a row looks like carelessness.

What was that clue for Dreft again? I'd never heard of it (it must not be up here in Canada), and I couldn't get it from whatever definition was in the clue. Something about purity…? In fact, I couldn't find "dreft" in any dictionary online except the Urban Dictionary, and that definition isn't ver...

After the Bryn Mawr clue a few days ago, and the lynx one today, I have a feeling the writers haven't heard of "and sometimes Y".

Everything's up to date in Kansas City. You'll go about as fer as you can go.

Seriously, David, it shouldn't cost you anything to set up a US dollar account at your bank.
