Re: Friday, September 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Douglas Ginsberg’s nomination for Pope failing due to revelations of drug use may be he worst (best?) wrong answer of all time. That was laughably bad for a whole bunch of reasons. Not the least of which is there was no papal election in 1987. The wrong Ginsburg was nominated to the court that year...

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm reminded of the time not so long ago when a contestant with a deep Boston accent was ask the clue that resulted in the answer of the movie Cars. He said something like, "what is kaeeeez," with the beginning part sounding like the start of cash.

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think the Final Jeopardy ruling was outrageous. However, I was caught up in a completely different controversy. There was Berry Gordy senior and Berry Gordy Jr. Berry senior who was also known as Pops died about 1978. I knew Berry Gordy was the answer but I was thinking a contestant might be malte...

Now, I'm wondering if someone like the Riverside player is at a disadvantage due to travel considerations?
Man... someone who lives in Riverside has disadvantages well beyond "travel considerations."

I got Pantheon right away. Something is weird with the sound mix. The music was drowning out Alex's words. The Statue of Liberty has nothing to do with immigration. It was a gift to the United States from France on the occasion of our hundredth anniversary. Frankie's story was ridiculously boring. ...

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

And besides how long did for original Jeopardy! fans (Fleming era) to accept Alex on a regular basis? If I recall, it took them a long time for them to do so (similar in timeframe its taken from Bob's retirement from Price to now with Drew as host) I don't know about that. You're talking about basi...

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

I thought something like this was going to happen when Alex made the ominous announcement during the goat that those three contestants would never play together again.

Re: Thursday, May 9, 2002 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That wasn't the only time Leslie bungled with a bad Bet. It was such an easy FJ question too.

It's worth speculating that Brad might never have made it to the goat or for that matter being invited to play Watson if Leslie had made the proper BET right there.

The book Game Over: How Nintendo Zapped an American Industry, Captured Your Dollars, and Enslaved Your Children by David Sheff describes the naming controversy and the trademark infringement lawsuit by Universal Studios more completely than I can.

It's a double corruption. The name of the game was supposed to be monkey kong but they got it wrong in translation.
