Re: FJs for the 7/3/17 week

:oops: :oops: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :( :( :( :mrgreen: Had to do red faces for Monday and Tuesday's FJs because I so should have gotten those (and made it a 4/5 week instead of a measly 2/5) with my knowing the Boeing 747 debuted sometime around the extreme late 60s/early 70s (I guessed the Concorde) ...

Near-instagot FJ...took a second after Alex reading, but The Bell Jar immediately came to me and I held onto it. Always feels good to nab a triple stumper FJ, although I too am a little amazed that at least one contestant didn't get it. Ran Scary Reading (including the dark matter DD), "Center"tainm...

Re: TD 345 - Ken Burns documentaries - Final Scores

Muchas gracias for a fun TD and all of your time and effort that went into it, Peachbox!

I don't care where I finish as long as it warms my heart to see so many know their jazz to various degrees.

Went with Livingstone for Thursday's FJ, knowing in my heart it was more than most likely not right.

Said Augusta National Golf Club for Friday's FJ.

Re: Unwritten Rules of Jeopardy

My pet peeve is contestants who repeatedly choose clues in a video category early in the round. Clear the board, people! Um, but if the board is going to be cleared, those clues would have to be chosen eventually, so it doesn't matter when they are chosen. I forget where, exactly, I read this and w...

Re: Monday, May 29, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The TV FUNNY GUYS stumper with William Frawley only mentioned Lucy, so I would think just Fred would have been accepted. Did the players not even know that much or was recalling Mertz and thinking that was required the problem? Of course they have no problem with all things Office , Seinfeld and Co...

*walks in 'scatting' "Tossed Salad And Scrambled Eggs"* Quite stylish!

INSTAGET FJ...had "Don't Stop Believin'" off of 'Jonathan Cain', with the rest of the clue sealing the deal. With music AND retro inspired pop culture being in my top wheelhouses, no way was I missing that one. Ran Monogram Mania, and almost ran History (got Dien Bien Phu-ed), Cooking Terms (got kip...

Re: 2017 Tournament of Champions

All I'll say is that if the suggestion actually happened, I would be disappointed if they didn't make the Presidents Of The USA's cover of "Cleveland Rocks" the tournament theme.

And fun fact: the cast includes Peter Scolari (the other guy from Bosom Buddies ) as Émile Zola! Interesting. I always liked Peter Scolari. When "Bosom Buddies" was on the air I certainly wouldn't have expected one of the two stars would go on to be the most famous actor in the world and the other ...
