Re: Friday, December 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Davis Cup = tennis seemed obscure for the top box. It's not, but on a personal level, I keep mixing it up with Ryder (golf)... Anyone have a Davis/Ryder mnemonic I could steal?... I struggled with this for years, until I remembered that when I was first trying to learn to play tennis I was using a ...

Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I know the difference between the Seattle Seahawks and the Portland Trailblazers. I really do. And yet for some unfathomable reason when the clue said "Seattle Seahawks" I read "Portland Trailblazers", and said "What is six?" I fully understood the response should be one more than the regular number...

Re: Wednesday, December 4, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Amtrak conductors have always said Dowagiac as "duh-WAH-jack". Johnny had "DOW-a-jack". I grew up 30 miles from there and yes, it's 'Duh-WAH-giac'. Johnny butchered it so bad, I thought it was just some town I never heard of. My wife's cousin lived in or near Dowagiac for many years. When my wi...

On "Tiger Talk" for $1000: Am I the only one who heard Jennifer say "the lady AND the tiger" instead of "the lady OR the tiger"? I was really expecting a reversal there. Clue didn't ask for the title, just the two components of said title, so either conjunction works: An 1882 short story by Frank S...

Re: FJs for the 11/25/19 week

I guess getting the pretty hard "Dracula" this week kinda makes up for missing the relatively easy "garden gnomes" last week. :)

Equilateral literally means “equal length”
Sometimes I can't help being pedantic. I think the literal meaning of equilateral is "equal sides". You probably know that, and simply mis-spoke (mis-typed?)

Re: Wednesday, November 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For "ALL" IN $200, I said "stonewall"; can I get a judges ruling on that? Considering that the show considered "stall" and "stonewall" as close synonyms only a week ago, I don't think there's any question. BET IT ALL $600 http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6455&highlight=stonewall Ah! th...

I think I'd give it to you before the next DD, but it's not a slam dunk as I thought it was after looking in the dictionary and thinking. Thanks. It's not like it makes any kind of difference to anything; I just like to know ...

I have a problem with the Dark Ages $1200 clue: "Dark Ages guys Methodius & Cyril went down in history as the fathers of this system" Alex said (according to our crack archivists) that the correct response is "(what is) the alphabet". Surely the ancient Phoenicians invented the alphabet, and what Me...

i don't think this FJ! was too "inside baseball". I'm not a particularly religious person, and this was an instaget for me. I really think this is just part of the stuff you ought to know (both for Jeopardy! and for living in the world).
