Re: 5/3/18 FJ Poll [SPOILER!]

I'm 23 and have yet to see the movie in question. I enjoy sampling films deemed all-time classics,but Casablanca has not been one of them so far.
It's been a goal of mine for a while now to try and see all the Best Picture winners and/or the AFI's Top 100, so I'll probably get around to it one day.

Re: Wednesday, May 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't know why, but I can never remember who won the famous duel between Hamilton and Burr (maybe it'd help if I saw the musical, but I don't think that's happening anytime soon). Luckily, I managed to get FJ right after I convinced myself that I've heard the name Theodosia somewhere in relation t...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Pointer, what a coincidence - I’m also going from Newfoundland to NYC! I’m in the April 25 audition group, though. This is an interesting coincidence - I’m coming down from Halifax! Perhaps they’ve decided that Atlantic Canada is a major untapped resource! Hey, I'm from P.E.I. and... well I'm not a...

I missed tonight's FJ to make myself 0/4 so far this week but I got the tiebreaker clue. If I miss tomorrow's clue, it will be an interesting scenario when the weekly poll arrives.

Count me in with those who said shogun on Thursday. I know what a pram is, but I didn't know it came from "perambulator."

The Beverly Hillbillies is waaaaay before my time, so I haven't ever seen an episode.

Re: Tuesday, January 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The arctic tern made me think of Colin Mochrie. :lol: You're not the only one. :D I got FJ fairly quickly. I tried thinking of novels with mythology-themed titles and Ulysses managed to pop into my head pretty quickly. From there I made it to Daedalus. I'm liking Ryan so far, he seems to have a ver...

Just the other day, the $2000 clue in "Anagrammed Names" from the Rutter/Frates/Cooper M$M semifinal popped into my head, making tonight's FJ an instaget:

For some reason, that clue popped into my head as well.

I was spoiled on the FJ clue thanks to Jeopardy's Twitter page. I feel confident I would've gotten it, but I think I'll have to leave the appropriate box unchecked. :x

Splinter group was my response for the FJ! clue. +1 for splinter group and yelling at the TV when Shawn didn't get Wellington (which wasn't the only time I yelled at the TV tonight).

My second 3/5 week in a row, and oddly enough, this week's​ gets and misses are in the exact same pattern as last week.

6/10 in this year's ToC overall, which I'm very happy about since I only got three clues in the past two ToCs combined.

Re: Friday, November 17, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Man, what a fantastic game to end the tournament. Quite the roller coaster with Buzzy hitting that DD, and Alan missing his (which I was devastated by since I was rooting for him, and since I think he would've gotten it had he taken more time). Austin also did well enough to stay in contention by FJ...

I'm glad to see Alan do well today and I'm excited to see him in the finals. Personally, I was rooting for him in today's game and I consider him to be one of the favorites in the tournament, but of course, Buzzy and Austin won't be easy to defeat. Regardless of what happens, I'm excited for the fin...

It may be just me, but I feel like the games have gotten tougher as the week progressed. I lost the coin flip between Edward and George. I can never instantly recall the order of the Edwards and Georges after Victoria's reign, and the pressure of those 30 seconds didn't help. And so the quarterfinal...

Surprisingly, I got this FJ, since FJ clues about geography have never been a particular strength of mine. The last two Tournaments of Champions (is that the correct plural?), I went a combined 3/20, so another get this week will equal my total from the last two years combined. I don't mean to toot ...
