That was my response as well, and I strongly suspect it was on Alex’s card as the desired one.

Re: Monday, June 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The remind-alike game was easy today with Lindsay, as from moment one of her speaking (coupled with her appearance) it was Beth Behrs as Gemma Johnson on CBS's The Neighborhood . I had Riki Lindhome - most recently seen in Knives Out but potentially better known as the blonde half of the comedy ban...

I confidently said CA for FJ, assuming that Hoover has a library at Stanford, maybe part of the Hoover Institution. But his library is in IA...Even if I'd thought of TX, I might have guessed GWB's wasn't open yet... :roll: Yeah I didn't realize it at the time as I went straight to Texas, but CA is ...

For some reason, I thought of "banana clip", but that didn't sound right, and I clammed. Apparently it's a women's hair clip or something? Never seen one in my life, but heard the phrase, and thought it might fit. Actually, you probably have if you have even a passing familiarity with LeVar Burton'...

I understood the wording of FJ perfectly, but still passed up El Salvador because El Salvador is NOT English . Its’ official name is the Republic of El Salvador, which makes both the listing, and subsequently the wording of the clue, dicey, IMO. I'm not following your logic. First of all it is list...

Am I seriously the first guy here to report getting this FJ! :shock: And it was an instaget, too Instaget for me too, though it probably doesn’t hurt that I’ve read almost all of the extended PJ universe books - I think they’re much more accessible to middle school/early YA readers than Harry Potte...

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

My guess is that they are postponing the Teachers Tournament to May 18-29, so the season can run until June 12. Hopefully, the Teachers Tournament will air at some point. I'm hoping it's not like when Wheel pulled two weeks because one promoted Carnival Cruise Lines and the other promoted Collette ...

Gal Gadot is definitely an NHOI for me.
Presumably you have not seen either any of the Fast and Furious films, or the more recent DC movies, in which she plays Wonder Woman.

Incidentally, as she is Israeli and not French, the T in her last name is not silent.

What was the TOM for "This Is Us" on Cast for $200? Those names are absolutely unfamiliar to me, and I saw nothing more specific in the clue.
Sterling K. Brown, who has won multiple awards for playing adult Randall, and is unquestionably the breakout member of the cast.

Re: Your prediction for GOAT tonight Jan. 14

my prediction is for Ken to win tonight because as of last Friday, abc.com had regular programming on their schedule for Wednesday. They have since changed it to show GOAT lasting all 7 games I don't think you can go by that... it's not as if I haven't caught shows spoiling themselves before...we'l...

FTR, Leawood is the suburb i couldn't originally parse out; the fact that my parents live there makes it an even bigger forehead slap.

Re: TD 436 - Kansas City

It's a little unfortunate that this didn't end up being TD 435, but that would probably only matter to the locals.

I hesitate to admit this, but there is one suburb in question 6 that I couldn't puzzle out until just now, and I am officially a moron. :lol:

My understanding is that Maggie is currently on sabbatical; hopefully one of our more recent contestants can fill in the details.

Okay, duh, now I get it. James is going for a Vegas theme on his sign-ins. I wonder if he showed up with four ready to go. Vegas sign for the QF round, the Luxor (not Dark Side of the Moon ) for the semis and today an Eiffel Tower for the Paris Hotel. Pretty sure today’s shout-out was actually the ...

James signed in with his "A" a triangle. Dark Side of the Moon tribute?
I think that's actually a pyramid, which would make it a nod to the Luxor.
