Re: Friday, September 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Played FJ off "Clue of the Day." Had to think for a few seconds to come up with tennis and golf, and thought golf much more likely for a 50+ participant to still be active. Spaced out on Mickelson and flipped a mental coin between Vijay Singh and Ernie Els. Know nothing about their ages, but I know ...

Re: Thursday, September 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Came up with "neutron star" for FJ, and after looking at the definition, it might've passed muster. 100% acceptable. LGM-1 was a neutron star. Unless there were a neutron discovered earlier and not identified as a pulsar, for which the invisible star of the binary Sco X-1 seems to fit the bill. Goo...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

This could be phrased in several variants to look for different pieces of story - the composer, the song, for whom it was written, what it became, etc. CLASSICAL COMPOSERS In approximately 1796, this native of Austria, also known as the "Father of the String Quartet," wrote a song in honor of the la...

Re: Monday, September 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said game room instead of parlor. Judges? Clue already had "games" in it, so I say no. Yeah, I don't think games were named for the game room...But parlor games were named for the parlor. I spaced on parlor, and blurted "drawing room." I dimly remember that ..... maybe Lestrade? Or someone in an ...

My son played baseball as a kid with a boy named Cain. Not sure why you would name your son after a person who murdered his brother.
I wonder if the spelling was Cain. If it was "Caine," he could have been named after David Carradine's character on the TV show "Kung Fu."

Re: FJs for the 9/14/20 week

:mrgreen: :( :( :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Though I disagree vehemently with the judges' ruling, I counted my response of "Barry Gordy" incorrect as it would have been on the show. Both Daniel Boone and Diego Rivera were pretty obvious in retrospect, but didn't occur to me in time.

$6200 from TSs, correct on DD2 and DD3. Would have probably still lost when I matched David's answer of Davy Crockett (though I spell it without the "E").
Davy Crocktt? :lol:

I hope that players like Kelly are not the direction the producers want to retake the show. As TalkingAwauy posted, a little goes a long way.. :o Honestly, I'm willing to give the producers a lot of leeway. The contestant pool shrunk from about 365.8 million to about 19 million.

From Reddit and the 9/16/ thread: Hello, I’m sure you are getting a lot of emails about this: Is there an official explanation for the Berry / Barry ruling? Did the judges determine them to be pronounced differently (because the rule in the past has been misspellings are okay if they don’t affect p...

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Someone mentioned "pen" vs. "pin" in a Facebook group in relation to last night's FJ scoring decision. In a good part of the south those two words are pronounced the same and that might give some of us who would pronounce Barry and Berry some perspective. If the FJ clue was something like "He won a...

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I actually thought they would make a score change for cochineal as a beetle derivative, instead of just insect. Beetle is correct. Wikipedia says cochineals are of the order Hemiptera. Beetles are of the order Coleoptera. Interestingly, this means that the response "What is a bug?" would or at leas...

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

A friend of mine got the call for September 30. She has to arrive at Sony at 7 am and will have to do her own hair and makeup. The contestants also will be mic'ing themselves. In other words, no close staff interaction at all. Weird thought, but as a man...I would have absolutely no clue how to do ...
