Re: Wednesday, January 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got the right FJ! answer but for the wrong reason. I thought that the U.S. had been given the USVI by Great Britain in WWI, so it would make sense that they would drive on the same side of the road as England. Turns out that we got the USVI from Denmark. Oh, well, I'll take it. I knew we got them...

Re: Reretaken Down

If you expand the definition of a group to include TV show casts, Ted Knight died 30.5 years prior to Mary Tyler Moore, the next cast member of that show to die.

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

I didn’t know Grafton had a title picked out for Z. But there aren’t many words (much fewer than a thousand) that could be a reasonable word for her book. I took a guess and won imaginary money. I think Zenith would have fit if she had chosen that. Zebra, not so much. I didn’t know patio was Spanish...

I hope Steve just decided to write down a 1939 movie when he couldn’t come up with Mr. Smith. At least he didn’t say The Wizard of Oz.

Kind of a bleah game. Instaget FJ here.

Thank you! I haven't seen the game yet so hopefully I look way less nervous than I was. You looked much less nervous than the lady at your spot last week. Congratulations on making it as far as you did. You played a good game. I am the idiot who couldn’t remember the State Department and put Treasu...

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

I don’t see James as a villain. He makes bets based on his daughter’s birthday, how evil can he be? He also is a rather low key player and doesn’t do a bunch of waving his hands around to draw attention to himself.

Sidebar to Floridagator just above. Massive boo on your entry, which made this one necessary. Lol!
A quick Google of “Ken Jennings Trump” would tell him his prediction is unlikely.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just now got to see this match. I had been spoiled on Ken wining as well as on Iago, but I doubt I get that anyway outside of a wild guess. As I knew Ken won, I knew James would miss FJ2. He probably should have gone all in on FJ1, but in the end it doesn’t matter. My DVR did not record anything f...

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

I have always thought they would end his career with some sort of “Alex Invitational” with him bringing back his favorites one last time. Ken might be coaxed into playing that. But his health may not allow time to get that together next season. I think the GOAT series was as much for him as it was t...

And an interview with Stephanie Hull, who achieved the lowest score ever.
*Maybe
It must suck to hold a record and have an asterisk on it.
Maybe Billy Crystal will do a documentary about her.

Re: Monday, January 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was worried Israel was going to pop up in country size category and then darn if it didn’t in FJ. Was it just me or did Katie seem to be getting emotionally upset on the Avon DD? It is rare that saying this is a good thing, but I was with TPH on FJ. It sounded like Exodus, so I went with it. Those...
