Did anyone else hear Lisa pronounce Edward Murrow's name as "Morrow?" I was expecting a reversal for that.
I thought I heard "Morrow" too.

Nice work, Robert!

Thanks for the "genre" count.

We missed the first part of the show here in Chicago as local officials reacted to the Breonna Taylor case.

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Last summer, in Columbus, they didn't seem to be referring to the questionnaires at all when interviewing us. I knew I was doomed at my last audition when I was the only person who was not asked anything related to the questionnaire. I guess my five stories were just too boring! I had five stories ...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 9/16/2020

Never knew "myriad" referred to a specific number. I actually knew the root before I knew that particular word. My dad had a book (it's still around here somewhere) called The Insomniac's Dictionary that I got into as a kid that had a bunch of stuff about words. Well, dang. I'm gonna track down tha...

Alex says "genre" today to give everyone a smile.
:) Can someone start an official "genre" tally?
Had to root for La Mirada, so I'm glad Joe did well.

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Also, besides being watched by J! staff, should we be prepared to interact with them at all? I was banished upstairs while my husband took the Zoom test today, but he says it was pretty much test only. The only chitchat was to confirm all the participants were hooked up correctly. Interaction, yes,...

Re: Wednesday, September 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Forgot to mention that when I saw the category TV SHOWS BASED ON BOOKS BY WOMEN, I confidently pre-called The Handmaid's Tale . Really surprised that didn't pay off. The writers love that book almost as much as I hate it. +1 I think Kelley's energy would've played better with a studio audience, but...

Does anybody know if these auditions are only going out from the anytime test, or also from the official test they had a few months back? I haven't done the anytime test yet.
I'm pretty sure my husband hasn't taken the anytime test either, so this batch must be from the last online extravaganza.

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

How exactly does the question and answer component work, and somebody said you can jump backwards if you realize an answer was wrong? Would somebody mind explaining how that works? From what I gather from yesterday's message, the quiz will be formatted like the online version--type in each answer o...

Off the FJ! category I made three precalls: Treasure Island, Robinson Crusoe and Verne. After all, I've paid my dues between watching the TV series and using a "B" ticket to visit the Disneyland attraction. I precalled SFR, Treasure Island and Tom Sawyer/Huck Finn, and I have to state that Disneyla...

The only Z store I've heard of is Zappo's.
I remember shopping at Zody's in Southern California back in the day. They were a variety store like Target, and Johnny Carson used to joke about them quite a bit.

Re: Boardie Poll About Taking The Test

My husband signed us both up for the online test. This was his longtime dream, not mine at all, so of course I ended up getting the invite. I auditioned during a historic Chicago Snowpocalypse in March, got The Call that summer, taped in August. One test, one audition, and one helluva blur.
