Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait NOW you're not voting for Roy Moore? I did not vote for him when he ran for Chief Justice. I did not vote for him either time he ran for governor. I did not vote for him in the primary or runoff. I wasn’t going to vote for him next mo...

Re: Friday, November 17, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I knew we were getting wordplay for FJ. I breezed through Maine and NH but never stopped in Bernie’s home.

I didn’t have a strong rooting interest so I was fine with Buzzy winning. It was a fun TOC but the finals weren’t as strong as I had expected, though they were still exciting.

Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Due to work and other real life irritations, I wasn't able to see the game until just now. So I turned on my DVR and saw the first segment was pre-empted on my local station so they could carry a Roy Moore press conference. Now I'm definitely not voting for him. Thanks to the reddit guy for saving m...

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Barbara Lowe is 5-0 in her Jeopardy career. I hope this doesn't sound bad what I am about to say. I was hoping Cindy Stowell would keep winning until one day Alex came on at the beginning and said she had to withdraw due to her illness. It would have been great if a player as strong and courageous a...

Re: Wednesday, November 15, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just one of those quick calculations that nobody takes the time to work out. I await watching you in a ToC semifinal. Yup. Got beat up by Keith Williams about my $10K DD wager in my first BOD match. You try doing the math when Alex is staring at you, waiting for an answer. I think Tim's interview s...

Robert Mugabe, who has been president/virtual dictator of Zimbabwe since 1987 and before that, Prime Minister from 1980-87, was apparently deposed by the Zimbabwean military in a bloodless coup. http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/14/africa/zimbabwe-military-chief-treasonable-conduct/index.html Why was he u...

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

I got magnet school but not solar winds. I wasn't certain Portugal had a monarchy in the past but the person being born in Brazil seemed like a big hint it was Portugal.

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I know that the questions are the same for everyone regardless of league level, but I certainly have come back down to earth just in time for my latest promotion to C League. I've only gotten four out of 12 questions right during the first two days. Fortunately, I eked out a one point victory on Mo...

Re: Monday, November 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

This. If you accidentally blurt out "Islands" when you mean "Islanders," that's one thing. When you give the full name of another team and stop talking, your response is complete. I was going to say if the Blues didn't exist, I might have cut him some slack on that one. But in a TOC SF, I think I'd...

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've got to say it warms my heart to see a slew of Jeopardy alumni band up to defend Lisa from naysayers on Twitter right now. It looks like they really are a close knit circle, one that I hope to have the privilege of joining one day. I don’t do Twitter. Are people bashing her for losing so badly?...

Re: Learned League 75 - Official Thread

I start the season with a 3(2)-4(4) loss. At least I played perfect defense. Oddly, we both made the same defensive assignments for all six questions. I couldn't tell you much about the Carter family or name any of their songs, but I did recognize the name Maybelle. So that gave me three with zero f...

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ was an instaget for me and was really surprised it went 1/3 on the show. 12 Angry Men never occurred to me. Even if it had, I wouldn't have gone with it because I have heard of mixed gender casts and I'm not really sure if a cast of 12 would be considered small. While the original was written in ...

I started with MVB but quickly made the switch to the right guy.

I agree Austin got a break on the hockey team.

Re: Friday, November 10, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I said Mountbatten. He was Prince Philip’s uncle as well as a great-grandson of Victoria, so I was in the ballpark. I did have George written down, but crossed him out.

I did not add “Cross” to my response. I wonder if they would have taken just George.

Pranjal and Austin move on to the next round as both non-winners from today are eliminated. Lilly and Tim breath a sigh of relief as they are gone if the men both get FJ right.

I also thought this was easier than it played out. Like Alex and the guys (and girl), I am too young to remember the Depression, but I do associate selling apples on the corner with it. I considered New York, but went with Washington since it is better known for its apples.

Maybe I misread what he said, but I took him to say the Game 3 people could learn the first two game scores once they got to the audience after their game was over.
