Re: Boardie Poll About Taking The Test

Took the test every year barring the one where Canadians were of questionable status.

Passed at least once (2013) but the audition invite went to my spam folder and I missed the chance to audition. Haven't passed since as far as I can tell.

The FJ! clue took care of my 10/10 tourney dreams right off the bat. I played it like a simpleton and wrote Walt Whitman in going off “grassy” towards a Leaves of Grass connection. :oops:
Your Honour, I also plead guilty to this.

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

I went for the pride, but if it was like, game 5 or something I'd probably go for the infamous "What is a man" response.

Seems a bit silly to expect contestants to know whether Tony Blair was born in 1953 or 1951. Yeah, that was a lame clue. You could easily think it's Major, Blair, or Brown. I precalled Cameron. I guess I figured if you were a British PM you were older - Blair would have to have been what, 43-44 whe...

Got the FJ by remembering the category - otherwise it could be a lot of misdirections. I don't know why it was qualified as a US location thing - maybe they have international entities surviving. That TOM didn't help, but wasn't negbait either.
The Canadian operations are still going strong.

The FJ! clue had “Garth” and “Julian” meaning nothing to me. That left 1877 and New Hampshire as I matched Bridget for the solve. Twain and Thoreau were not on my radar for misses and I thought someone might try Poe going off “curse” and “crime.”
I'll plead guilty to this.

Jack solved the clue for the win although I got a chuckle out of him making it one word to have me picturing TR playing in the CFL.

As the news editor for a long-standing Nintendo fansite, I really have to wonder where they pulled "Hyrule Legends" as a Wii game from. (There's a Hyrule Warriors Legends which is a handheld version of a game on the Wii's successor.)

I finally got a chance to watch one of Cindy's episodes tonight, having just lost my own uncle to cancer... I have to say, it got a little dusty when Cindy began the comeback and way too dusty when she got FJ.

I can understand thinking Canadiens (five straight cups in the latter half of the decade) so I locked in on that and Islanders. Would have made for a nice :facepalm: picture if I had been at the lectern.
