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

Ball and socket joint sure seems like an easy one for a $2000 clue in the TOC finals. Agreed, and doubly so because it was a video DD. The year referenced in FJ had me going up and down the eastern seaboard. Glad to say that I got Montpelier, but unfortunately it was about 10 seconds after the end ...

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

Is it at this point that I confess my FJ! SWAG was Robespierre? :oops: (prepares for the pointing and laughing) ;) That was also my guess. I'm glad I'm not alone. Petain, for whatever reason, isn't someone I know anything about. I'll join the club - went with Robespierre not really thinking it woul...

I went Pied Piper of Hamelin -> Hamilton, hoping their was a VP named Hamilton, since I knew Alexander was not one. Oops.

Do the contestants know the non-winning dollar amounts from earlier tapings or are they sequestered?

Judges: "Parma" for "Prosciutto"? I recall the clue asked for the name of the ham, not the sliced product that can be made from the ham.

Re: Thursday, November 9, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Flailed wildly on the FJ. Immediate thought was shoe shining which lead me to cotton and one of the Carolinas but that seemed waaaay too tenuous. Next thought was popcorn and a state in the grain belt but owning a popcorn popper seemed too capital-intensive for the Depression (and did they even exis...

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see the point in songs that whine and moan about problems.
Well, that rules out pretty much the entire Blues genre, most of Jazz, probably about half of Opera and a good bit of Country.

My wild FJ guess was Musician, as in "K. C. and the Sunshine Band".

Chalk up another one for "brainiac", although I knew it was almost certainly wrong. Doubt I would have ever gotten to highbrow.

Re: Monday, October 23, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

WNEM had a weird hiccup. They cut to a commercial in the middle of the interviews, but as soon as the commercials were over, they picked up where they left off. Then at the end of the J! round, they instantly jumped into DJ! Yeah, that was weird. I don't pay much attention during the interviews and...

Like MarkBarrett I was thinking along the lines of sequencing the human genome but could not come up with a reasonable link to the earlier experiment. Easy-peasy once I started from the farm girl and worked forward, but doubt I would have been able to write it out before time expired.

Re: Thursday, October 12, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought Austin showed a lot of class with the high-five and his general exuberance towards Scarlett beating him. No sour grapes there at all.

Scarlett was a monster on the buzzer (er, "signalling device").

Re: Friday, October 6, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm starting to think that they've finally implemented a "61 or bust" rule, as there were a lot of TSes today, which would normally take up too much time and prevent some clues from being shown. (When was the last time we left clues on the board?) Yeah, but when Austin gets on a roll he can clear a...

Re: Monday, October 2, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

So apparently my brain has a one-way path from Grant Wood -> American Gothic that does not work the other direction. Spot me Wood and I will give you Gothic, but tonight all I could do is blurt out "the guy who painted American Gothic". I get the feeling that Austin is just warming up. He seemed mor...

Re: Friday, September 29, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't remember which clue it was, but did anyone else catch the scoring glitch on one of Austin's negs? His score went up by the clue amount, then back down to his original score and then down by the clue amount, all in the span of a second or so. I barely had time to get "Hey, they..." out of my ...

I have it on good authority(*) that the next three FJ categories are:
19th Century Sonnet Writers
"Couplets" in the News
Haiku Hijinks

(*) I made this up.
