Re: Monday, February 1, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The FJ clue said "one great site", singular. Not an entire park, but the lone greatest natural wonder in the US. This was the key phrase, not TR. Parsing the clue correctly leaves only one answer. Don't try to make things too complicated in a college tournament. So instead of overcomplicating, read...

Re: Monday, December 14, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was anyone else amazed they took "the Charles Manson group" for the Manson Family? Not really amazed, but I felt it was kinda lame to not know (brain lock, or not) 'Manson Family'. I can understand the leniency in their accepting it though. I don't think the Manson Family was a formal name by the g...

WLT governor at $400? Ella Grasso. First female governor not succeeding her husband or father. So YEKIOYD. Eh; I got it without explicitly knowing it. I knew the first female Representative and the first female Senator were both elected pre-WWII, and it was the only logical remaining office to choo...

Re: TD 272 - Tom Enchanted Evening **FINAL STANDINGS**

I'm amazed that so many people remember the Tom Tom Club and such an obscure single like "Genius of Love". I thought for sure I was going to come close to a singleton on that one. I have the single on 45, and spent lots of quarters playing it on the jukebox on Saturday mornings during my youth bowl...

Re: Thursday, December 3, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Didn't see the episode; played it off of J! Archive. Kind of a rough game; 29 correct, 6 wrong, and 18 clammed for a total of $18,000. (My score got tanked a bit on the DJ DDs, since I couldn't clam on them.) I was surprised at how much Lach trash I picked up despite the low total: Stove-Top, Skylab...

Re: Friday, December 4, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was "Nassau House" enough to give someone Princeton for the Art and History DD? Having lived in Nassau County, I said the same thing as the champ. There even was a Battle of Long Island, so it's not a bad guess (even if it actually took place in Brooklyn). The Battle of Long Island ended with Washi...

39 correct, 4 wrong, 15 clams for a Coryats of $22,400. (I whiffed on three bottom-row clues, two of them in DJ, which hurt.) Ran TV and Published Posthumously, and missed the chance on Alternative Medicine as the $2000 went unrevealed. LT: moss, cathode ray tube, Bay of Fundy (DD), rooster (DD). Wa...

Re: TD 271: Numerology (reveal in progress)

98 Degrees LFO was a late-90s one-hit-wonder "boy band," whose hit "Summer Girls" is one of the great lyrical atrocities accomplishments of our time. The chorus of the song begins thusly: "New Kids On The Block had a bunch of hits / Chinese food makes me sick / And I think it's fly when girls stop ...

NHO 311, 98 Degrees, Powerman 5000, 10,000 Maniacs or Three Dog Night. I went with Powerman 5000 as I figured a late-90s one-hit-wonder metal band wouldn't get much play around here... :lol: Turns out it would've been better to pick the multi-platinum selling pop-punk group. Who knew. 98 Degrees wa...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Two Gentlemen of Verona and The Merry Wives of Windsor are the only two Shakespeare titles that indirectly reference multiple people, and "Valentine" is a traditionally a man's name. There's also "Two Noble Kinsmen", which is generally attributed to Shakespeare & John Fletcher. But it wasn't in the...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought "Two Gentleman of Verona" was undervalued at $400. Two Gentlemen of Verona and The Merry Wives of Windsor are the only two Shakespeare titles that indirectly reference multiple people, and "Valentine" is a traditionally a man's name. Negging "foilage" was a BS call IMO. That's a dialectal...
