Re: Monday, October 7, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I went with just "Nerf" and I'm counting it. Picked up some Lach Trash today, such as Clemente.

Re: Thursday, September 26, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For FJ, Firefox was the only response that came to mind and it seemed reasonable, so I went with it.

Re: Wednesday, July 31, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Normally I'd criticize Skyler's FJ wager, but it was clear from the interview segment that he is a civil war buff, so I'm not surprised he made a huge bet on a wheelhouse category. He made a savvy bet on the math DD, although I suspect it wouldn't have worked out well for him if the next clue (about...

Re: Friday, July 26, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I also thought they should have indicated "the writers" in the South Park clue, which might have prevented all three players from falling into the character trap.

I was pleasantly surprised that I precalled the correct FJ response.

FJ was an instaget. It's one of the facts about Coca-Cola that I came to know as a shareholder.

Re: Friday, June 14, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It's been a while since I watched a game involving three good players. It was a nice way to end the week.

I happily picked up the Lach trash on Isaac Asimov. I'm currently reading his book "Beginnings."

It took a few seconds, but I managed to come up with the correct FJ response.

Re: Wednesday, May 8, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Given all the triple stumpers and negs, I couldn't help but regard this trio of contestants as below-average, making it a lackluster game to watch.

FJ was an instaget. I was surprised none of them got it.

Re: Thursday, April 25, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought Andy should have been negged for his butchered pronunciation of "Poirot" (it sounded like he said "Poura") but I guess the judges cut him some slack.

I precalled the correct FJ response.

Re: Tuesday, April 2, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

A bad FJ wager from 2nd place. *shakes head* FJ was a tough one... I tried to brainstorm authors who had died in 2012 and only came up with Maurice Sendak. Picked up some Lach Trash on Parkinson's, Thomas Gibson, and one or two others I can't remember now. I said Procter & Gamble instead of Gillette...

I thought I stood no chance on FJ when I saw the category, but I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be an instaget.

I was rooting for Tom after he mentioned waiting 37 years to get on the show. It was nice to see him win a large sum.

I had the correct FJ response before Alex was halfway done reading the clue.

Re: Friday, March 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I liked this FJ clue. The first part about cell division immediately suggested mitosis, but the second part about energy release suggested it was wrong (I've never heard mitosis used in that context). I then thought about what kind of energy release involves something dividing, at which point I hone...

Re: Matt Lauer Being Considered as Alex's Successor

I would not like Matt Lauer or Anderson Cooper to be host.

I think Todd Alan Crain (who hosted the practice matches involving Watson) might be a good choice.

Re: Thursday, March 14, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This was kind of a lousy game to watch. I thought all three players were mediocre and there were too many stand-and-stares.

FJ was an instaget... na na na na

Re: Wednesday, March 6, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I agree that Lorraine made a bad wager on the last DD.

Picked up Lach Trash on Toronto and Hillerman.

FJ was an instaget. I predict it will run over 80% in the weekly poll.

Re: Friday, March 1, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Bad wagering and too many negs cost Craig the game.

I got FJ after a few seconds. My thought process: Why would someone want to measure radio frequencies in homes? To know what people are listening to -- which then led immediately to Nielsen.

Re: Thursday, February 28, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought the AT&T clue was potentially misleading; they announced the acquisition of T-Mobile, but the deal never ended up happening because the government blocked it. Of course, the rest of the clue (about the spokeswoman) made it an instaget. On the last DD I would've bet $8K, creating a sizable ...
