Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I also think you are ineligible if you are running for public office.

Re: Thursday, July 25, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Given the category, I would have bet $0 on FJ. Without any hope at all of knowing the answer, I guessed "Hotel California" simply to avoid the ignominy of saying nothing.

Surprise!

Re: Wednesday, July 24, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first thought for FJ was Shel Silverstein, but he didn't seem the least bit Picasso-like. I switched to Sendak in plenty of time.

For FJ, I said Sylvia Plath, but I wasn't at all sure. I kept telling myself "There's another one I can never remember who wrote a story I can never remember." I was right!

Having read "Angels and Demons," I never felt the need to read "The Da Vinci Code." They are, for all practical purposes, the same book.(Or so I understand.)

I said Achilles because Greek + hero. The TOM of cliffs meant nothing to me. Even if spotted Thermopylae, I doubt I would have gotten Leonides.

I guessed jury-rigged, but I wasn't at all sure. I didn't even remember jerry-rigged until Alex mentioned it would have been accepted.

For what it's worth, jerry-rigged is getting flagged as being misspelled. Jury-rigged is not.

Wrong answers – 9 points ROME immaf This surprised me. I checked, and there *is* a Rome, Ohio. I suppose one could argue that Romano cheese is not *particularly* associated with Rome (Roma), but am I wrong? It's a village, the question asked for city.

My brain was irretrievably stuck on Oceania, even though the number of letters was wrong. (Upon sober consideration, Oceania also includes Australia, so the amount of land was wrong, too.)
Stupid brain.

Got the invite for Columbus the other day, but waited to share just because I wanted to confirm there wouldn't be an eligibility snafu because of WWTBAM.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

And as for the Austin pub quiz audition in NYC, it did seem difficult to imagine TPTB skipping NYC for an entire year of auditions. I'm pretty sure that for the past several years, they have alternated Boston and NYC as an audition city. I used to be out of sync with that schedule, and there were s...

Me during the think music: Ummm? Maybe Arlo Guthrie? Probably not. There was the other Guthrie, though -- what was his name? Nope, it's not coming. But Arlo was the dad, right? He was older? And therefore more likely to be known to Steinbeck? Oh what the heck, I'm probably way off base anyway. I''ll...

I was spoiled because I happened to catch the tag end of the CBS Evening News. Grrr.

Since I am currently in the contestant pool, I am glad James is gone. I am also glad he didn't surpass Ken's regular-play winnings. Nothing against James, but I simply prefer Ken. I thought he was funnier.

I grew up in Vermont, so Smuggler's Notch was a gimme for me, but many states boast a city or town named Burlington, I thought that was a difficult clue.

I don't know what other guesses are even plausible for Final. Maybe if somebody had a major brain fart and tried Born on the Fourth of July?
I had no clue, although it clearly had something to do with the Civil War. I went with "The Blue and the Grey". That was a movie, right?
