Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Who else noticed this misspelling? https://i.imgur.com/2DGkEUv.jpg I posted that before noticing that linear gnome had already mentioned it. I think the champ has too great an advantage on the signaling button from days of practice. Obviously all three contestants knew many of those Clues; the most ...

AOC ruins James's true daily double

James attempted another true daily double and went to zero because he confused Articles of Confederation with Bill of Rights. He chose AOC and lost all his money. How could he not know Bill of Rights Day? There is no AOC day.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

Would simply saying clam chowder for #10 and finch for #23 have been acceptable? Thanks. Clam chowder had better be OK, because that's what I said! Finch is doubtful because the clue referenced a colorful bird. I know I passed. I am certain I had 44 correct. I was pleased to see a dearth of popular...

I have no idea why someone couldn't exit the Massachusetts Turnpike and then drive to Wooster, Ohio. It's enough to make me think taillight was spelled incorrectly. :twisted:

Re: The connection between a quiz bowl background and J! success

The people in that age cohort were also born around the time of the beginning of the Trebek version J! so we associate more of our memories with events that happened on the show and the show is probably more meaningful to us than people who were born before or after us . Why Cat! I never knew you w...

Just hope AT didn't put the triple-whammy jinx on the guy by mentioning the name that must not be mentioned. Now why should that name never be mentioned? It seems like we talk about him around here all the time. He's even been talked up as a replacement for AT. I must say those DDs were on the easy...

Re: The connection between a quiz bowl background and J! success

In my humble opinion, we ought to see a difference between contestants who went through College Bowl in the 1990s or earlier versus those who went through in the 2000s. Sometime around 2000, they rejiggered College Bowl to make it more academic in nature. The pre-2000 College Bowl was a lot like Jeo...

I instagot FJ from Bear And Weber being counties and Jordan a city adjacent to Great Salt Lake.
Then you got lucky, as there is no Bear County in Utah (or anywhere else in the US).
Bear Lake County is in Idaho, just north of the border.

Sadly, there isn't always a simplification for airport names vs. IATA initials. Orlando's primary is MCO, going back to the days when it was McCoy Air Force Base. Then again, there are those who think that MCO stands for "Mickey's Corporate Office," and that works too. :P Airport codes in the conti...

Re: Sony Reportedly Searching For Alex's Replacement

I've said this before. At the time Alex Trebek was hired to be host, there were many, many people available who had actual, proven performance hosting game shows on network television. Some examples: Trebek, Jim Peck, Tom Kennedy, Bob Eubanks, Bill Cullen, Jim Lange, Bill Narz, Gene Rayburn, Wink Ma...

Is there a reason anyone should know what city that Montreal deli is in? That clue seemed very devoid of TOM. Poll request? Schwartz's Deli is far and away the most famous restaurant in Montreal, if not all of Canada. Some celebrities have reported going straight from the airport to Schwartz's. (Th...

I knew Anika from college. I once dumped a girlfriend in anticipation of Anika but instead wound up with a new long-term girlfriend. Life was simpler then. Erich's rebound at the end was impressive but it was too little too late, and it forced him to make the all-in bet for FJ. I got Elvis right awa...
