Re: Tuesday, January 18, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm clearly not as well read as many really great J! champs (such as Amy, obviously) so it tickled me when I saw the clue about the character predicting an eclipse and I recalled reading that in "A Connecticut Yankee...." And I may not have seen as many plays as some J! champs... ...but I...

My father is originally from Short Hills, but I agree, that really should have been a bottom-row clue.

Re: Friday, January 7, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

From personal experience, being seated in a competitive endeavor like this makes it easier to stay still. The contestants were seated on the original version of J!. (I remember my mother being concerned, when the current version premiered, about the contestants having to stand up for the entire hal...

Re: Season 38 Preemptions

Seahawks/Rams & WFT/Eagles are being from from Sunday to Tuesday 12/21 at 7ET on Fox. I guess that means regional coverage only? Not sure who/where gets affected for watching J! There will be football on all Fox affiliates, it’s just split on which game is seen in which parts of the country. (T...

Re: LL Season 91

I got both "Kukla, Fran & Ollie" and "Among Us." I think I'm in that Generation X sweet spot where I had to hear about all kinds of Baby Boomer diversions growing up, and I'm still (barely) young enough to keep up with what the kids are into these days.

Re the $1,200 clue in Transportation: no, "everyone" did not wear oxygen masks prior to the invention of the pressurized cabin. Rather, planes flew at low enough altitudes that the cabins didn't need to be pressurized, and no supplemental oxygen was needed.

This Final Jeopardy! was straight out of Ken's trivia podcast "Omnibus" -- there was an episode about sister cities back in 2020. (Link)

I didn’t know Ken grew up in Korea. Interesting. Wonder if his parents were LDS missionaries. Nothing to do (directly) with LDS -- he grew up in Korea because his father was an international lawyer working at a firm there. (He did take relatively frequent trips back to the U.S. to visit relatives a...

My point was that Sony's interest in promoting the Beatles is evident; in promoting Disney+, not so much Obviously, they're interested in getting paid to have sponsored categories, even if the money is coming from an ostensible competitor.

Since Ken and I both went to Douglas Adams book signings while in college, I assume we both saw him when he was touring to promote Mostly Harmless.

The term "tabletop games" would probably confuse the average Reader's Digest reader.

And technically, the entire station was not demolished, basically only the above-ground portion -- the underground portion remained relatively intact, and that's what's still in use as Pennsylvania/Penn Station today (although it's been renovated over the years).

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I had a chance at the James Beard show sponsor logo since, long before my time, my grandfather was a milkman for Borden, but I just couldn't pull the cow name. The station that airs J! in the Tampa/St. Petersburg market, WTSP, originally had the call letters WLCY-TV... supposedly, the associated ra...

KSBW-TV NBC Salinas/Monterey/Santa Cruz is pre-empting tonight's episode due to the Project Community special called Honoring Hispanic Heritage. It will not air at all. Cue Twilight Zone music.
