Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

AFRICAN CAPITALS Streets in this city include Calle 3 de Agosto and Avenida Hassan II What is Malabo? (Equatorial Guinea is the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa) what is the significance of those streets? Creo que la idea es que las palabras "Calle", "Agosto", y "Avenida" son de espanol.

Right composer, wrong opera (The Marriage of Figaro). I never made the Don Giovanni <-> Don Juan connection before but will not make this mistake again.

Re: Friday, November 29, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I could've done without Alex throwing shade at the entire home viewing audience during his opening remarks. For some reason that rubbed me the wrong way. "CLASSIC BRITISH NOVELS' anchored me to novels taking place in Britain so that particular quote did not lead me to any useful associations given t...

Should have gotten FJ as I am very familiar with the term, but instead I could not get "manifestation" out of my head. And really, except for the whole derived-from-Sanskrit thing, it is not too bad.

Re: Wednesday, November 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Incidentally, the quote "Stella! Hey Stella!" is on the list, so it was a good guess...except for the 1951 part. If it hadn't been a decade off, and they hadn't given the years, it would be cheap, because most people just go "Stellaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" when remembering the quote. (Or, at least, that's ho...

I went with The Blue Parrot as thought for an FJ that Rick's was too obvious. Once you get to the correct movie it's really a coin flip.

"Lawn gnomes."

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I don't understand the calls for a 15-player tournament. We just had one in the spring and it would essentially end up being the same thing except replacing someone with James.

Elise played with a lot of intensity and I'm curious to see if she can sustain it over the course of a full taping day.

61 clues again and definitely there would have been clues left in this same kind of game at the beginning of the season. Praise again to whoever fixed the problem.

This type of team was chowed down upon in the Andes in 1972.

Nah, I don't think Alex could read that one.
I suppose a joke involving Rugby and Eton wouldn't fly either.

Help me, I can't stop myself.

Re: Wednesday, November 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For the staple Andean crop that might eradicate world hunger, I said "soccer players". But deep down I knew I was probably wrong. So wrong on so many levels. For starters they were rugby players. I've got no other complaints about this. ;) Huh, you're right, they were rugby players. I guess I just ...

I liked the WHAT'S BEING MEASURED category except for the confusion. Count me as one who wouldn't have been any less confused if the category had been taken in order. Is there a better category title that would have made it clear what they're looking for? If not, the category would have benefited f...

Re: TOC semifinal matchups are up

SF1 - Emma finds no DDs and Kyle and/or Dhruv do not miss for big bucks. Emma bested Josh and Eric on the buzzer so I see no reason she can't ring in best against Dhruv & Kyle. For buzzer speed I put Dhruv on equal footing (handing?) with Emma. I think Emma has a broader knowledge base but if Dhruv...

What I expect is: Gilbert vs. Steven vs. Lindsey Francois vs. Emma vs. Dhruv James vs. Kyle vs Rachel Francois vs. Emma vs. Dhruv would be a bare-knuckle brawl and if this comes to pass I predict it will be the most gripping game of the tournament. I know many people are on the James train but I th...

I had no idea the Mark Twain Prize was targeted for comedians and stage performers. He was a writer, and it's called "humor", so it has to be for authors, right?

Looks like I was the only one to guess Diana Ross. And if anyone says "But she's not an actress", well, neither is BS ! :P
Nope, she was my (uncomfortable) guess as well.
