They say get there two hours early, but there's usually no reason for that.
I used to have to do that regardless because my somewhat common name was shared with somebody on one of the magic lists, but it apparently got cleared up eventually.

Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

This really should be a tournament, though, of at least 15 players. Roger Craig oughta be involved, as well as Emma, Buzzy, Alex Jacob, and others. I'd put in David Madden and Larissa Kelly as well, especially since they were a part of the winning team in All-Stars. I disagree; there have been enou...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

I have two clues on the same topic, same category, same response. At first, pick one of the two clues. I think the second is a little harder, but feedback's welcome.

Did anyone else try "othered" instead of "objectified"? I wonder if that might even have been acceptable.

I thought they were looking for a food belt because of a reference to a literal belt expansion and for some reason, thought first of the Jello Belt (Mormons). I could not dig myself out of this hole.

If it takes longer than two seconds to parse the clue, it's a stinker in my book.

FICTIONAL PRODUCTS The name of this product, introduced in 1952, is a portmanteau of four of its ingredients; however, a fifth ingredient proves the most memorable. What is VitaMeataVegaMin?

I ran it too and I am in my early 30s. Bands like Pink Floyd remain very popular among high school kids even today. Honestly I'd take that over the endless barrage of bland, dull, slow Top 40 drivel and mumble-rap that most of my coworkers listen to. Is it too much to ask for energy in music anymor...

What was the TOM for Hendrix on Rock for $400? "burning it up at Monterey Pop": he literally set his guitar on fire at that festival. That whole category was way too boomer-centric IMO. "Classic rock guitarists" means something very particular. I ran the category. I ran it too and I am in my early ...

Note that "Black Holes and Revelations" is the title of an album by the rock band Muse.
And a very fine album indeed it is.

YMMV. I hadn't read or seen The Jungle Book since I was a kid, and although I got to that book, the best I could manage for a guess was Mowgli, just to say something. I had forgotten this clue that just appeared this past March: My wife also said Mowgli. (I instagot it; I admit to being one of thos...

Francois said on Reddit that for the first round, producers separated the three Georgia contestants and all contestants who taped on the same day (James/Emma, James/Steven) so it seems likely the same principle would hold for semifinals.

Is Alan called "John" in the FJ! spoiler?

Any guesses as to who he meant by "one who sang at the L.M."?
L.M. is the Lincoln Memorial, the outdoor venue referenced in the clue. It seems Alan knew what it was talking about but couldn't remember her name.
