Shakespeare's longest play being Hamlet(and its the longest by far) should be J! Pavlov for any prospective contestant. The fact that this went 1/3 is mind-boggling.

Re: Monday, April 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Fox really shot himself in the foot by not taking the Alex Jacob approach of taking your time to reread and make sure on his DD. Is the Domesday Book pronounced the way Dennis gave? I pronounced it how it appears to be spelled... After missing a recent-ish FJ about Summer Olympic host cities, I made...

Judges: Would just "Barney" have been acceptable instead of Barney Stinson? Got tons of yummy DJ trash with Marian Anderson, A Thousand Acres , and the Porthos DD For Final, Bogota was my first sure pick. I passed over Brasilia and went to the correct side of the Rio de la Plata and picked Buenos Ai...

Btw, for future reference: The capital of Ghana is pronounced "uh-CRAW" or "ah-CRAH", not "ACK-ruh" or "AWK-ruh"

I confess to not knowing much about the Lizzie Borden story, so today's Final was a good wake up call for me. I didn't know the time-frame, the location, anything. I honestly thought Lizzie was much younger than 32 years old when she was thrust into the public eye. I said Parker as well knowing full...

Mark me down for a perfect 15/15 on DD's this week. I definitely had to sweat on the last one, as it took me a few seconds to think of a word for "deceased" that rhymed with great Kate. Got there to my relief. Knew all the facts about Angel Falls, since it there was a clue about its discovery in the...

Some good moments for me in this game: Matched Bryce initially by saying Levi's, but bounced back after I remembered those Brett Favre commercials and his real. comfortable. jeans. I'd love to know if old number 4 helped anyone else out with that one. :lol: Did the same in DJ when I matched Kevin by...

I sure do love fun new facts. TIL that peloton meant something other than the company in all those commercials yelling at me to "keep pushing it!"

I've seen Saving Mr. Banks, so FJ was a snap.

Is it a triple stumper if initially ruled correct and then changed at a break? When Lisa mangled Dostoevsky I was ready get it on a rebound.
It really is a shame that you weren't given the shot at the rebound as she very clearly butchered Dostoevsky's name.
