Re: Monday, June 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Good start by Savannah Guthrie. The contestant interview part was a bit rough but that's fixable.

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

She was not repetitive in her intros. The only host who struck me as such was Bill Whitaker, who seemed to repeatedly open with some variation of "I love Jeopardy because it's about knowledge".

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Buckner win. For some reason my opponent gave me 3 points for Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I'm also glad I hit submit before watching J! last night in light of the question about the etymology of "key".

Could not pull Josh Gibson. Had plutonium for antimatter. :|
I got Josh Gibson but blanked on Pete Rose. I won't let myself live that down for quite awhile.

Lou Brock?

I thought for sure Katie was a goner. What a shock when she won! Good on her for making the correct final wager :)
I noticed she began writing immediately and was surprised she answered incorrectly.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

First beer of the season. The one I was struggling with was the alliterative organism name; I was stuck on plant names, and could only think of weeping willow, which obviously wasn't going to be it. It finally came to me after 20 minutes.

Re: Wednesday, June 9, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I assume Hendrix was just a “something is better than nothing” guess as he is pretty famously associated with Seattle. I have a feeling you're vastly overestimating how many people know Jimi grew up in Seattle. I asked my wife and she had no idea where he was from. (I do personally associate him wi...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

At first blush, I found the wording of the Venus question strange; it's trivial that any name would be meaningless to somebody that far back the past, with language evolution being what it is. I realized he was going for representing a concept that would have been meaningless, and put Europa.

"Posthumous hit" would have been enough given the category.
If it is 1970s is there a better choice than Jim Croce?
I don't think so; I doubt they'd go with Gram Parsons.

"Lad" is more of an exact match; I have no problem with it as a $200 clue. At least it wasn't the Daily Double.

The correction of "metal" to "heavy metal" was bizarre. The latter term is rarely used anymore.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I don't mind the occasional ad lib (Alex was no stranger to them) but it gets rather old how Mayim is constantly ad libbing, mainly to make comments about herself. An example from the contestant interviews was how she went out of her way to tell everybody she went to a Violent Femmes concert when i...

I was a little surprised that Baha'i was missed (Zoroastrianism predates Christianity and certainly did not arise in the 19th century), but given that religion is a wheelhouse category, I don't have the best gauge on what *should* be common knowledge. Perhaps one way of remembering that it's more mo...

I had "happy hour" at first, but the "union contracts" bit steered me in the right direction.
I'd happily join a union with that sort of leverage.

Nathan Hale a TS? Oy!! Owen was understandable if Owen Glendower wasn’t familiar to them. FJ was a clean whiff: knew exactly what they were clueing but didn’t recall who Olivier had married. I was bothered by my inability to remember if his first name was Nathan or Nathaniel (of course that doesn't...

What is so significant about 1738 in the History category? :? I do know there was a hit rap song a few years ago that prominently featured the name of that year because that was the year they started making Remy Martin. (Resultingly, the Kansas City Royals used "1738" as a running gag during their ...
