Re: Friday, January 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

After the category reveal, my g/f turned to me and said "Aren't there just two?" I replied "Aren't you the one who collects Archie Comics?" Then the commercials end, and she proceeded to miss the question.

Insta-get for me.

Interesting that the correct response to FJ! was Pokémon and there was a category that had "GO" in quotes, since the media-noted viral popularity of Pokémon GO! might still have been fresh on players' minds at the time of taping

Well, my son named after a Beatle recently had his Bar Mitzvah, so yeah, insta-get for the Torah and Sgt Pepper, and I even said to my girlfriend "Boy, that's a lot to write, I wonder if they'd accept just Sgt.

Well, the Jew over here was confused by the phrasing. I asked my GF "Is there a specific phrasing of the question that's supposed to be well known"? I was thrown by the fact that they were looking for the question; I assumed there had to be something more precise. "Why is this night different from a...

I haven't done the math but ... if they BMS'd Pranjal for "Harry Potter 7" (and I'm not saying they should have, just asking if they did), Monikka could have either clammed or rebounded (since she clearly knew "Deathly Hallows" was #7). Would that have affected her crush/non-crush scenario and chang...

I didn't go to school in the US- is the FJ question something that you might have encountered in high school? Not exactly phrased that way but if you learn about the Civil war would you have learnt about Missouri not being a part of the war and then used your geography knowledge of the states to kn...

I'm so torn about Matt. He played exactly how I want a player to play, good DD hunting, good DD bets, precise and not a lot of guesses. But OTOH, that slicked hair, that job description made me cringe and of course he's from BOSTON. Matt, if you're out there, I'm sorry to be so irrational about this...

All three should have been kicked-off the show right then and there for being unable to answer "Flight 93." I suspect they, like me, stayed clam because they didn't know the precise name of the memorial. Me too. +1 If it asked for the passenger, or the flight, or just about any other fact from it, ...

Re: FJs for the 6/27/16 week

This may be my first 0 for 5 (my girlfriend only watched Thu and Fri with me and got both).

For Friday, the "1860, only lasting 19 months" made me think it was a hint about something that ended because of the Civil War. I couldn't get out of the South in my thought process.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

or what was a successful basketball team in 1996 coached by Phil Jackson. The 90s Bulls were a little bigger than "a successful basketball team". It's the progenitor of the modern dynasty, and if you need to know anything about sports, 90s + Basketball = Phil Jackson, Michael Jordan, Chicago Bulls.
