Re: Thursday, November 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'd been unaware of Einstein's aversion to socks but I did know that No Pants Day is in January (though not through participating). I am surprised that this isn't better known. My understanding is that AE wasn't averse to socks but simply considered them redundant, something like "Hey, I'm wearing ...

Alex’s opening comment of how it will soon be Thanksgiving made me sad, knowing it will arrive without him here to enjoy it.
Perhaps he chose to mark Canadian Thanksgiving this year.

Re: J! in the Media

And to keep things on topic, I hear the new, January 2021 issue of Games World of Puzzles has a story in it about Jeopardy. I haven't seen one yet, so I can't say for sure. I can confirm this. I should add the article centers on the experiences of Becky Anderson, a 1xJ! Champ in 2009. http://www.j-...

There shouldn't be a College Championship of any sort in 2020-2021.
I'd be ok with a College Champions Championship.
You mean like the Champions Tour run by the PGA?

Given all of the extra space afforded by HDTV, I wish they'd keep the scores on the screen in a corner.
In a similar vein, why doesn't Wheel have an on-screen letter board?

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Agree with Myron on the Burr clue. There were literally only two possibilities and TJ seems much more likely. Even if you include future presidents none of them makes any sense. Sure, I follow the logic and that's probably why I settled on the correct response. But I didn't do so with full confiden...

I was boarding a plane many years ago, and as I'm getting into my seat, I see that sitting right in front of me was ... John Glenn. I couldn't resist, so I did start up a conversation. He was quite gracious. I'd probably just end up impersonating a fish the whole flight. :o :shock: :o :shock: :o :s...

Yep, that's the spot. Vermilion Cliffs area west of Page.

My wife and I would visit the region every few years for our anniversary. We were married on the beach at Lee's Ferry.

Winnipeg and Black Sea seemed like negbait for Ontario and Caspian Sea. Oof, not really. Odessa is famously a Black Sea port; the Caspian Sea touches only Russia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Iran; and the J! writers never use "sea" unqualified to refer to the Caspian (if they use "sea...
