Re: Thursday, October 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sure, I see that there are several ways to get in to this FJ, but the idea that pots and pans-Tinkerbell is a natural or easy connection? Couldn't tinker just be the sound of a small bell? A variation on tinkle?? Tinklebell is harder to say... Yeah, there's no way I would have gotten there without ...

Re: Thursday, October 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I could see it being vague enough to warrant an overturn, since the word "score" has more than one meaning, and even sticking to the "score = 20" meaning, Guess Who? can usually be completed in under 20 turns. How fast Guess Who? can be completed is irrelevant, since finishing within 20 questions i...

Re: Thursday, October 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I drew a complete blank on FJ. I said Mary Poppins just to have something. But at least Alan won, so it lessens the sting a little bit since I've been cheering for him. I'm happy to see he's punched a ticket for the ToC. The $200 clue in THE GOAL OF THE GAME: Identify a person or thing within a sco...

Re: Thursday, October 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I wonder if Thermopylae would have been a TS 10-11 years ago, in the wake of 300 . I'm off to a 4/4 start this week, though Tinkerbell took me awhile. Children's lit is such a wide open category (I remember having no idea with the Pippi Longstocking FJ awhile back), and having young kids at home doe...

Re: Wednesday, October 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Would a fifth win tomorrow (televised date: Thursday, 18 October 2018) guarantee Alan Dunn a place in a future ToC? Or could he be bumped by someone with more dollar winnings or more games won? Jasper It's generally understood that five games get you in. The only exception I can think of offhand is...

Re: Tuesday, October 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

At least today maybe I won't have to see all the "Did ANYONE actually miss this?" posts that come after me being honest about not having heard of the correct response. Oof -- if I contributed to this, I'm genuinely sorry. I'll try to be careful about such things in the future. I apologize as well. :(

Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

I'm for anything that makes the game interesting. I couldn't stand Ryan Fenster at first, but I ended up rooting for him after he repeatedly dug himself out of deep holes in DJ, wanting to see if he could do it again.

Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

Anybody I know
Boardies
People from Kansas or Missouri
People with blue collar professions
Contestants over the age of 60
I'll generally default to the current champion all other things being equal

Re: Friday, October 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've never actually read A Tale of Two Cities, but I know it involves the French Revolution, so 1775 was close enough to allow it as a semi-educated guess.

Re: Monday, October 8, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Moses seemed obvious, especially with all the recent controversies about Ten Commandments artwork in public areas. My precall for FJ was John Brown (thinking of John Steuart Curry's Prelude to Madness displayed in the Kansas Capitol, one of my favorite paintings.)

Re: FJs for the 10/1/18 week

I'm surprised I didn't know MeatZZa. We usually order Domino's since my stepdaughter loves it but I don't think I've ever noticed that menu option.

Incidentally, one of my co-workers was just telling me a couple days ago about a negative interaction he had with Pete Rose in Vegas last week. Can you share? Sorry, Cincy fans, I've always hated him. Nothing exciting. He was in a memorabilia shop and wouldn't so much as speak to anybody without th...

Re: Friday, October 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I knew Pete Rose played for the Reds but wasn't confident that the trial took place there. I knew that he played for several other teams late in his career, and I wasn't sure what locale actually had jurisdiction over the events in question. I'd like to think that if I were playing I would have take...
