Re: Thursday, July 9, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got FJ pretty quickly. I figured someone would probably write "xenon" because it has an X which will give you 10 points in Scrabble if you use it in a word.

Did well in V is For, Bible Phrases, 90's Sitcoms (I watched several of the ones mentioned) and Victory.

Good game.

Re: Encounters with J! Folk

I've met 2 J! champs. The first was Eddie Timanus, which happened in 2001. A friend of mine who knows that I'm a huge J! fan invited me to hear him speak at our state rehab center for blind people. He was a great speaker and told us all about his experiences. He had a Q and A session and I think I a...

Re: "1776" on TCM today, 3:00 PM Eastern

I first saw this movie way back in 1975 when I was in 4th grade-it was a class field trip. I remember liking it a lot.

I also fell into the Yukon trap-I'm glad I'm not the only one.
Got 4/5 in the illness category-missed CFS. It helps that my dad was a doctor and I know lots of medical terms.

I guessed Walmart for FJ. So far I'm 2 for 3 this week.

Ran Lady "B" Good and got 4/5 in the zip code category.

Johnny Gilbert pronounced the name of Alex's hometown wrong. It's YpsiLANti (short A like in lamb or lantern).

Re: FJs for the 6/15/15 week

I only got one FJ right this week, the one about Laura Ingalls Wilder on Thursday. It helps that I read the series of Little House books (and watched the TV show back in the 70's-80's)

Re: Thursday, June 18, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I finally got a Final Jeopardy right this week. Instaget for me.

Did well in the top 40 music category-I think I got 4/5 in that-including 2 triple stumpers.

Brennan is a good champ-I hope he gets into the ToC.

Re: Monday, June 15, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Great game to watch.

I got bullfrog and Anzio, both triple stumpers.

I knew what poem they were talking about in FJ, but blanked on the author's name-guessed Shelley.

Re: Friday, June 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I picked the wrong ship for FJ. I went with the Titanic, remembering that 2012 was the 100th anniversary of the sinking.
I'm surprised nobody wrote that down.

Darren played well again. I will be watching on Monday.

Re: Wednesday, June 10, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got FJ instantly. It helps that I'm old enough to remember the 1976 presidential campaign (which Carter won) and that he signed the treaty to give the canal back to Panama a couple years later-which at the time was controversial. Darren is going to be a good champion. I hope he sticks around for a...

I got Margaret Sanger-I ran the entire "Women In History" category.

FJ was an instaget for me.

This was a good, close game. I hope Phil sticks around as champ for a while.

That final was hard. I couldn't come up with anything.

I got Waimea Canyon (I've been there) in the Hawaiian Crossword Clue category. I also came up with macadamia nuts.

It was a good, close game.

I got the Johnstown clue right. That final was tough-and I had to read parts of The Canterbury Tales in high school.

Let's see how long Jamie lasts. She seems bright.

Re: Monday, June 1, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That was a tough final for a non-basketball fan. I guessed 3 point rule.

I got some triple stumpers (Ted Kennedy, Les Aspin to name 2). It helps to be a news junkie.

I think we will see Dan in the ToC.

I also went with GHW Bush. I was confused about which Mondale died recently.

Greg made a great comeback in DJ. I wonder how long his winning streak will last-today's game must have been scary for him to play since the challengers both were very good.

Re: How famous are the Celebrity Jeopardy contestants?

Ginger Zee used to work at the ABC station in Grand Rapids as a meteorologist. That's why I've heard of her. Mark Kelly is married to Gabby Giffords, the Arizona Congressperson who was shot a few years ago. His twin brother Mike is spending a year on the International Space Station. NASA is studying...

Re: Friday, April 24, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ was an istaget for me. I did pretty well in the main game, too.

I think Greg will be around for a while. He's smart and plays similarly to Alex (looking for and betting big on Daily Doubles). I enjoyed today's show.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 16, 2015

OK, I'm female and I come from a place that gets VERY few contestants. I could probably count on my fingers how many people from here (Kalamazoo area) have been on the show in 31 years. One of them goes to my church. So why haven't I gotten an invite to be on the show yet?????
