Re: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The list of Hamlet adaptations didn’t list this one.



Hamlet was my first thought and only briefly considered Othello.

Disappointed Aaron didn’t say Robert Burns with a Scottish brogue.

Re: Tuesday, April 13, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Never seen Anchorman but knew it was set in San Diego. I read about Aaron being in a game with the astronaut but couldn’t remember his last name. Maybe we’ll have a Mr. Wonderful clue later this week. I was spoiled on the Green Bay clue before I saw the game but it was easy Lach Trash for me. Orion ...

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

"V" seems early in the alphabet for an "alphabetically last" clue. I thought of the Yazoo, which was part of the Vicksburg campaign. It is in fact a national wild life refuge, though Yukon beats it for alphabetically late. Another yahoo here who said Yazoo. I agree V is a bit early, a Civil War men...

If Pasquale had gone DD hunting in the last category maybe he gets lucky.

I read the book in high school and got this one right.

Yeah, I had nothing on this FJ! Could be anyone.
The answer said it was a woman so that eliminates half the possibilities right there.

Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks, alietr, for providing the context. If you asked 100 literate, well-educated people to copy-edit that passage, I suspect none would flag the "a." That in itself demonstrates that it's idiomatic English. It's a terrible sentence though. It meanders all over the place. The diagram would look r...

Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Truman was having a drink with Sam Rayburn when FDR died. FDR was in a cabin so his last presidential decisions were in a cabin. Don’t know if it was sweltering. I drive by Warm Springs yesterday (we are very close to the anniversary of his death) and it wasn’t very sweltering. Side note...highly re...

Didn't see a single hint in this FJ! either. FINAL JEOPARDY! CATEGORY 20th CENTURY AMERICAN HISTORY FINAL JEOPARDY!

Much better performance today. Biggest improvement from the first to second day I have seen. Had I been on the show, the judges would have had to squint at my screen. I matched Chris by starting with T. Roosevelt and then figured it out right at the end and crossed out Teddy and scribbled LBJ. The m...

A little embarrassing to miss FJ when the correct response was literally right in front of you. (I know he spells his name differently than Fred, but it’s close).

Too many player errors :o

Not all for this game, but about 20 correction suggestions from one person in less than 30 minutes. :roll:
Was one of them Scott is italicized in the DJ29 response? 😉

To the person who said he listens to audio of the show while driving...do not listen to this episode with this host if driving late at night or if you are very tired. Hopefully he shows more energy in the next nine episodes. JoBeth blew any chance of winning by going for the $400 Hemingway clue with...

The only oceanographic institute I know is Woods Hole and I was pretty sure that wasn't it. I followed two of the contestants with Hearst (although I wa...
