Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another thing, for the record: The story above about Fiorello La Guardia is entirely made up. I find no evidence that La Guardia ever was a reporter, and in 1898 16-year-old La Guardia was living with his family in Europe. He didn't return to the US until 1906.

Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Altogether I have to say this was a weak game and a poor field of contestants. The middle man snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. His performance on the 2 Daily Doubles was thoroughly unimpressive. We look forward to your impressive performance that we can all laud. (Seriously; keep in mind t...

NHO the University of Michigan. That seems kind of obscure for a top row box. :twisted: Mozambique was colonized by the Portuguese. Zimbabwe and the former Southern Rhodesia have been in the news for enough of the contestant's life that he should have recognized it after being spotted both capitals....

Re: TD 443 - Hoops... (Final results)

Thanks for the TD and to everyone who played.

Ooo... I would have won if I knew that finalists referred to only the championship game and not the Final Four.

I noticed that Sarah was not wearing a seatbelt when she was riding in the FBI car. If agents want to learn invasive Lane changes, why don't they just come to where I live? I instagot FJ, and I expected all three players to bomb it. Manitoba is like a black spot in Jeopardy players' knowledge. The n...

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I knew that "GBH" was "Great Blue Hill", so getting "Boston" was just a touch easier for me...or if you watch any PBS show that's created by WGBH Boston, like If you're from Boston, you know gbh stands for God bless Harvard. For decades, WGBH had its Studios, basically an entire back lot where they...

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I ran call letters. I pre called WLS and two that did not come up, KYW in Philadelphia and WCCO in Minneapolis. I definitely had a feeling that one of WGN or WLS would be in the category. I have also been up the Coit Tower at least twice and viewed the left wing murals in its Lobby. (Are there any r...

Re: J! to Tape Without Live Audience

I'm reminded of the early days of syndicated Jeopardy when most of the contestants were from LA. In those days they were announced as being originally from so and so in order to disguise the huge number that lived in LA. I'm also reminded of when David Letterman announced that in the event of nuclea...

Re: Monday, March 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I completely don't understand contestants who don't know vice presidents and provinces of Canada cold. There aren't that many of either and they ask about them frequently. Look at all the Tom's in that daily double: 1959 Khrushchev Kitchen appliances If you can't tell the Kennedy Brothers apart, the...

Thanks for the TD and to everyone who played.

My incorrect answer not only knocked me off my game, it meant I didn't get the minus 5 bonus.

I predict that kelilah will be forgotten before the first commercial break on Monday and one or more of the challengers will emerge as the favourite. Could you at least make an attempt at spelling her name right? The disrespect here is utterly palpable. No disrespect meant. I dictated the message o...

What an abysmal game. I predict that kelilah will be forgotten before the first commercial break on Monday and one or more of the challengers will emerge as the favourite. Nordstrom was founded in Seattle and didn't open its first store in New York until rather recently. Not to mention it isn't an o...

I'm feeling lucky to still be in fourth place after confusing Cleveland Mississippi with Cleveland Tennessee. At least I didn't say Case Western Reserve.

Re: Thursday, March 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think the contestant got screwed on Transit Bureau. That was being unnecessarily specific. The police unit for the Subways was part of the transit authority for over 40 years. I have seen all three of the Taking of Pelham One Two Three movies (and read the book) so I had no hesitation in saying Tr...

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have a series of beefs about tonight's game : * why did they accept Annapolis when the clue asked for the name of a military academy? How is that any better than someone answering Portugal when asked for a language? * why did they need to use that photo of Nancy Reagan after she was wizened? Could...
