Re: J! in the Media

There's already (at least) one writer for The Athletic who was a J! champion -- only a 3-timer, though.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

While there are some local ads during Jeopardy, many of the ads definitely come packaged with the show... Most of the commercials that air during J! are local -- the one block of ads that comes packaged with the show runs between the end of Double Jeopardy! and the bumper within that commercial bre...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I've only seen one episode of "The Sopranos," but I've played the pinball machine based on the show many times -- it includes a mention of "Pie-O-My."

Some people on this board may have a June 7 birthday, but my birthday is September 22, and, well, the list of historical events that took place on September 22 is pretty short.

Re: J! in the Media

Part of the eligibility rules for the 2020 primetime Emmys said: "Programs first broadcast during primetime hours, which are an extension or a special of a daytime series, are eligible in the Daytime Emmy competition, but no longer eligible in Primetime." Therefore, the GOAT tournament was only elig...

I was expecting outrage in this thread about Justin's Daily Double response of "Poor's" being accepted when the correct response was the name "(Henry) Poor."

Re: Friday, May 7, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In many shows from 20+ years ago (I see it on Seinfeld and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), the captions are purposely rewritten, usually substituting a simpler phrase that means the same thing as what the actor actually spoke. It's infuriating to me as a person with generally good hearing who has capt...

Ha, I got all 12 and was 12 points away. I didn't have the courage to money "Sonja."

As a number of cities/states have done recently, Lansing just had a contest to give names to the city's snowplow fleet. Someone I know bragged on Twitter that she had submitted one of the winners: "Coldsmobile."

Re: FJs for the 4/12/21 week

Just last month, for the anniversary of the collapse, I went to the former site of the St. Francis Dam. The rebuilt powerhouse, a little ways downstream from where the dam used to be, has a historical marker next to it (which could use a bit of cleaning). It doesn't mention Mulholland's name, but I ...

Re: The 2021 Tournament of Champions Is Happening Next Month

With J mostly being on ABC stations, and not in prime time, there isn’t really a need to have reruns those weeks. It's not mostly on ABC stations (that info may be a little out of date, but there haven't been that many changes), and I suspect that NBC's Olympics coverage will be starting at 7:30 P....

As a matter of curiosity, though, does anyone know if the IOC has an official ruling as to whether present-day Germany inherits the records of West Germany? How about East Germany? The IOC considers Germany, West Germany, East Germany, and the German Unified Team (the latter competed 1956-1964) to ...

This appears to be the cover that the FJ! clue referred to. I'm not sure when it was published, but it looks fairly modern.

"Sweltering cabin" = "airplane" occurred to me pretty quickly -- I've been on quite a few planes where the ground-powered air conditioning wasn't cutting it during boarding, and the flight attendants have used the P.A. to reassure everyone, "the cabin will cool down once we close the door and get th...

FJ! was an instaget for me. It seems like a link to the speech in question goes around on social media every few months.
