Re: J! in the Media

I don’t know what people said about you as I don’t do Twitter. But I liked your headstrong approach to the game. I said in Monday’s thread that you were probably disappointed to see her win but you definitely didn’t play scared. Against normal players you probably make the TOC. I guess some saw it a...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Trying to imagine your reaction if he tossed his hat in the ring right before his episodes aired and they got bumped in your area.

Re: Are there any Tournaments in store for Season 38?

It said 36 players with nine hour-long episodes.

So nine teams of four?

Re: Wednesday, December 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was an insta-"guess" for me, after seeing the term "governor-general". I saw that term used as a clue in the Australian version of Jeopardy. I wonder if any other countries have governor-generals, and I was just lucky? Canada does and I assume all other countries that have El...

First thought was Ottawa, but was pretty sure it wasn’t planned that recently. So I went South and started the month on a winning note.

Amy keeps rolling along. Ho hum.

Re: Tuesday, November 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Three rooting interests today. A superchamp, a boardie, and someone older than me. Great job, Pam. You didn’t seem fazed at all by a nine-day champ as you blew through the first round like Sherman through Georgia. (Keeping with the Civil War theme). I also had “apex and I don’t know” for the DD. Did...

Re: Monday, November 29, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was a hell of a game to watch first thing in the morning while awaiting my name being called (after already being told in morning briefing that she was an 8 game winner with 300k and all of the games but one were a runaway). I did not exactly remember or register the exact amount she won becau...

She was talking about her eighth-grade class, though; I assume 1993 refers to that.
Thanks. Missed that part.

Paris+bells made it a quick solve. Remember, you don’t have to actually read the book, just know what it is about. If she graduated high school in 1993, she was possibly born in 1975, the band that cost her $16,000. (Would have had $8,000 more going into FJ). I didn’t know Ken grew up in Korea. Inte...

Re: Friday, November 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The link above was from a publication based in a very LBGTQ-friendly area. I would imagine if she lived in my community an article about her in the local virtual fishwrap would not mention her being transgender. If it did, I would want to have the popcorn concessions for the comment section. No chan...

Done before the 4th quarter: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=7200 id=7200 - I'm thankful there are so many games in the archive. I think your shift key had eaten too much turkey in FJ. I got this one quickly, not a good FJ to figure out at the 27 second mark. We have had 54 games thi...

Re: Are there any Tournaments in store for Season 38?

November 29 will begin a tournament. Rumor mill is College Professors though not confirmed. More in 2022? TBD. O Dear Gawd no. And you thought Celebrity J! was insufferable. :roll: The professors are at least real contestants. While I am not a fan of the concept, the tournament won’t really be any ...

Thanksgiving Eve complete: https://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=7199 There may be a long delay tomorrow getting everything done with CBS airing a parade and football.

Re: Tuesday, November 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is Nebraska’s top tourist attraction so well known it deserved top box status? Disappointed the College World Series wasn’t mentioned.

Given his chat subject, I guess Joe Montana was an easy get for Matt.

I matched Amy with Amsterdam.

Re: Monday, November 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In July I took a tour of the all presidential graves in Ohio (along with Kentucky and Indiana) and took a tour of Harding’s home. I probably get it anyway, but having it fresh in my mind helped. A fun fact about McKinley’s elections is that he beat William Jennings Bryan both times. If it ever comes...
