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

I would, but I'm a little biased -- that was my response. No question - if hero is the expected answer hoagie's correct too. I said "ham" and was a little unsure they'd take the neg back since you can see 2 kinds of meat in the sandwich they showed...but I'm glad they did. Three kinds, no less. I s...

For "hero sandwich"/"ham sandwich", do you accept "hoagie sandwich"?

Just one of those quick calculations that nobody takes the time to work out. I await watching you in a ToC semifinal. Cool. I'll be the one playing optimally leading to a lock game. 8-) :lol: nah you wont even win a game if you ever make it on the show. I'll take that bet since I recall Golf postin...

Just one of those quick calculations that nobody takes the time to work out. One of AT's jobs is to keep the game moving and not let too much dead air occur. Even though they can edit out gaps, they still want to keep the studio audience engaged and prevent them from getting restive. I was fortunat...

Re: Tuesday, November 14, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I can't begin to imagine Lisa's feelings during that game. Perhaps frustration with the buzzer, knowing the right responses to many questions but not being able to answer because her timing was off. Missing the buzzer once is part of the game. Miss 3 or 4 in a row and you start questioning the timi...

Re: TD 358 - Random Trivia - Final Scores

Aaaaaargh... I specifically chose not to use "stovepipe hat" because it was first in the list and seemed like the obvious choice. So of course it was a singleton. I think I should start going directly against all my strategy instincts. Thanks for putting this together! I will echo your thanks to Pe...

I did not know where to go with the clue and considered Midwest (corn/wheat state), South (cotton state), or East (tobacco) and I guessed NC. NW was not on my radar. And that was only after reading the clue twice to comprehend I needed a state and not a product or job title Anyone know if seeing a ...

19th c. poet of 'questionable morals'? This was such a slam dunk instaget for Byron that I wondered if I was missing something obvious, and now I wonder if others fit that description and I just don't know enough about other poets of the time (well of course I don't, I know less about poetry than y...

Ammo for the conspiracy buffs with Buzzy the music executive getting a FJ! category of MUSIC & HISTORY. Definitely a lot of music clues tonight. My wife accused them of feeding Buzzy. My first instinct on FJ was the 1812 Overture, but Borodino just didn't sound Russian to me so I said "Carmen." Pre...

Re: Maintaining Confidentiality of Who Has Won on Jeopardy!

A coworker told me that her husband “brought multiple outfits and needed them.” Noe I’m glad I didn’t repeat that to anyone. Maybe the producers didn't like the one he intended to wear for his first and only show? I'm guessing this isn't the case though, but could happen. It does happen, but the fr...

You have no idea how many people have joked that I should wear a fursuit on Wheel. I don't think they'd allow that.
Is Bob Barker hosting now?
If he is, considering his tagline, I'd be doubly cautious about wearing a fursuit.

What was the clue? I missed quite a bit due to flipping between J! and the World Series. It's been interesting reading the summary, since I missed more than quite a bit -- J! is on the same Denver channel that broadcast the Series. For the previous conflicts, they put that day's J! episode on at mi...

Re: The Buzzer!

Don't worry about that "flexible thumbs" line. There's no hard and fast rule about handling the buzzer. (I did not use my thumb.) As long as your method doesn't wreck the equipment, they don't care how you depress the button. They want you to be as comfortable as possible, so definitely let them kn...

Re: The Buzzer!

Could you hold the buzzer in one hand, and hover the other hand over it? Specifically not allowed, unless they've changed their rules in the last 15 years. Not-to-distant past, one contestant (if memory serves, it may have been Rob Liguori) held the base of the buzzer in left hand, with right thumb...

I'm wondering if I was included in an unusual group, or have all the other Jeopardy! contestants on here found the situation to be the same when they were on the show? My group was also quite friendly and social, lots of chatter in the green room and support for each other at lunch. Several of us e...
