Re: Tuesday, June 2, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm in the Quench camp... And I went with WA/OR on FJ!. :( And, Hoops Dreams was a layup. :mrgreen: At least it was for me... But then, I'm almost undoubtedly the biggest high-school hoops fan on this forum, and it's probably not even close... I go to well over 100 high-school games a season. I foll...

Re: Friday, May 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I seem to remember noticing a very slight pause by Alex when the response "Desalinization" was given... Maybe Alex was getting a judge-approval signal and they were actually originally *looking* for the response to be "Distillation". On FJ!, I correctly guessed Texas. 3 of 5 for the week... and the ...

Loved that DD in "American Songbook"... That's one of the few categories where I'd be going "Holzhauer-plus-one" ("All In" after putting my wallet and keys on the podium).

And... TPH, you've really never heard of this song?

I saw all five shows this week. Am aware of the episodes "in the can". Couldn't answer the first one about Marion Jones because I just don't remember how I did the first time it was on. I am a sports fan and was even more so back then, and her name would be fresher in the mind of a sports fan when t...

Seriously, J! writers?!?!?!? MARY TYLER MOORE at a higher dollar value than SUPERSTORE? I have to agree with you since the clue referred both to the famous theme song and to one of the show's characters, Ted Baxter. The contestants are mostly screwing themselves by playing the board from the bottom...

Re: 2020 rerun schedule?

It would be fun to see the very first win of the all-time top players, when they were "just another challenger". Of course, the Holzhauer run, or at least some of the games in it... Same for games from some of the regular-season runs of other top stars... Maybe championship games from previous TOC's...

Re: Tuesday, April 7, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

... Surely you're aware that the state is often referred to as "Washington state" to distinguish it from Washington, D.C. And "Cougars" isn't a nickname for Washington State University; it's a nickname for people at (or alumni of) that university. There was nothing wrong with the clue. I wasn't say...
