Re: TD 368 - PRESIDENTS' DAY - Q2 REVEALED

UNUSED 1. LYNDON B. JOHNSON 4. RONALD REAGAN Only nine choices and seven of them where easy, so I dropped this question like a hot potato. I was beating my head against the wall trying to think who nos. 1 and 7 were though. I knew the #7 photo had too sharp definition to be before mid-20th century ...

Matt was a nice chap but he gave me reason to root against him after he refused to finish out the Live Aid Set List category.

Re: Thursday, February 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

During Think Time I considered U. of Georgia, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, and Emory, while also knowing that one (not that I had a clue which one) of those places was in Athens. I didn't know the CDC was in Atlanta, but I have been to Athens. Aced the First Name Verbs category. I wouldn't have tho...

Insta-get for me.
I'm surprised that it was a triple stumper and no one guessed CNN.

Only thing I watch on TWC is the series Highway Through Hell, Why Airplanes Crash, and some of those survival shows, like the ones with Creek Stewart.

Re: Friday, February 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ryan finishes with 33 negs in five games. (By comparison, Austin Rogers had 34 in his thirteen non-tournament games, according to the statistics on TJF.) So it was too early for comparisons to Ken Jennings, but maybe not too early for comparisons to Austin Rogers. 8-) A more telling stat would be d...

Re: Friday, February 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had a feeling during the intros this would be Ryan's last game. He spent much of the J! round in the red, which coincided with his first game. As much as I liked to root for him, his inability to stay clam had me shaking my head in disgust many times. Even though he had an outside chance of cheati...

I'll be checking the box in this week's poll that says I collected $3,000 lach trash in Talkn' Football . After the first stand and stare, I resorted to merely writing the answer down on my LT column as Alex read each clue, rather than waiting to see if any contestant got it. Another (big) overbet f...

Re: Thursday, January 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So the J! Archive has a wagering suggestion that doesn't agree with what happened, but I agree with the real one: Three-quarters for first place Jeff (5200): You can't really win on a Triple Stumper, so your best hope is if you're the only one to get Final right. Wager everything but a few dollars....

Re: Wednesday, January 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Is the FJ a generational thing, and young people don't know about this phenomenon? Or is this one of the easiest FJs imaginable?? It seems to me I still see the commercials from time to time, but I haven't received a mailing in years. I'm sure there's nothing in the ads that reveals that their rais...

Re: Wednesday, January 24, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Can someone listen and hear if the "g"s were pronounced in "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'", since the show has, on occasion, been persnickety about song titles? I was wondering if this might be an issue as well, but Alex actually talked over her as soon as she said "You've", correcting the previo...

I don't think it was random at all. She just chose the figure with the maximum number of zeros.

Re: Monday, January 15, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ wagering - Gilbert stuck to the script, covering a double by Tyler. Tyler's wager would have put him $1 ahead of Gilbert on a correct response, forcing Gilbert to also get it right. But a zero wager by the leader is pretty unlikely. He could have wagered up to 2999 without risking falling behind...

Does Q-3 require both the name of the TV show and the movie if they are slightly different, or just either title?

I blanked on Warren's name thanks in no small part to our crude POTUS' insults which dominated my retrieval process. Last semester, I mentioned Tecumseh's curse to our team. But it did end with Reagan. Unless you subscribe to the Zombie Reagan theory. And the Android George W. Bush theory. I got an...

If Julie had gotten her DD right, she would have won, and then they'd have had to invite Gilbert and Rebecca back. If it was just that one Daily Double and nothing else being changed, I dunno about re-inviting Gilbert since his Final wager didn't look significant enough to alter the outcome of the ...

Lindsay corrected Alex during the interview and it was all downhill from there. All three players were personable for me to root for them. Too bad two of them had to lose. I didn't get the Warren Harding clue but evidently the TOM must have been something to do with the 'smoke filled room', as the b...
