Re: TD 448 - 42 [Final results]

Thanks for the TD. I have snapped a much too long losing streak. Just under a year!

It was completely not necessary for AT to point out where the organs were on his body. Makes me glad ovaries wasn't a TS.

Despite what John Denver might have told you, the Blue Ridge Mountains are not in West Virginia. The USGS disagrees with you. See https://geonames.usgs.gov/apex/f?p=138:3:0::NO::P3_FID,P3_TITLE:1023842,Blue%20Ridge That page says it only passes through the easternmost County in the Eastern Panhandl...

Despite what John Denver might have told you, the Blue Ridge Mountains are not in West Virginia. Neither is the Shenandoah River.

I can't keep from confusing JEB Stuart and JEB Stuart Magruder. LOL, just LOL at someone being deported to Israel in 1919. Steve was obviously just guessing at tea and Jack Daniels.

Re: Tuesday, June 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was enjoying that middle names category when the champ went back to can splaining. And those Clues were all so effing long! Then time ran out and we never got back to middle names. So I wished him to lose. So many stupid answers in this game, I can't remember them all. Chihuahua a pepper and a sau...

I hesitated on cubic foot because a bushel is 2150 cubic inches. I thought that was pretty close. FJ was an instaget. If you didn't know MLK's year of birth, you should. I had some reminders because at the 50th anniversary of his assassination in 2018, they made a big deal of reminding everyone that...

Re: TD 446 - Random Trivia Quiz - Final Scores

Thanks for the TD. What an awful game for me. I am sticking with my assertion that Nat King Cole first recorded it (twice, it turns out) in 1946, and that record is in the hall.of of Fame. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Christmas_Song Winners list updated: Http://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=5...

Re: RIP Herb Stempel

If it hadn't been for the 21 Scandal, it would have been something else. The games were growing in the size of their stakes and the motive to act dirtily was also growing. Game shows since then have been produced with the utmost honesty. You might win or you might lose, but the games are fair. CBS b...

You just knew somebody was going to bring this up: Who remembers the crude variation on "he who hesitates is lost" from the movie The Cable Guy? I had some pause about ringing in on Alexander solzhenitsyn because it seems like it would be so easy to mispronounce that name. I knew both Bush libraries...

Re: Wednesday, May 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not sure I like that Alex called Will an automatic semifinalist at the end of DJ, before any Final wagers had been made. Yeah, that's probably going to be true, but don't point that out; Will could have made a bone-headed wager if he hadn't been reminded. It's part of the unofficial long-establishe...

FJ was an insta get for me. I could have gotten it just from Boundary County. I completely understand the neg bait for Minnesota because the Northwest Angle, which protrudes into Canada, is sometimes called the chimney top of Minnesota. It was the northernmost point in the US until Alaska became a s...

I don't understand the technicality that means I don't get a point for Indiana and am therefore kept out of first place. I will state that Notre Dame is a member of the ACC, but not for football.

Re: TD 445 - Prime Time [Q1-Q10 revealed]

I seem to have fallen into a sheep hole from which I can't get out. Now how could I not say Guy Lombardo after I made a whole TD aural question about him?
