Re: Wednesday, October 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had zero chance on FJ!...

If there had been no category, and a question asking who Dalton Trumbo was, I would have had no clue, even though I have heard the name before... Somewhere.

I knew all the facts that *should* have made William Tell Overture a cinch for me... But they didn't come together for me... and I said "Light Cavalry Overture".

ZERO idea on FJ... None whatsoever. I managed Pretty Boy Floyd just in the nick of time... I figured Billboard 2020 was a sure 0-fer for me, but guessed Eminem correctly simply based on the fact he's a famous Detroit rapper. Even though I got lucky once there, I'd rather not see any recent pop-cultu...

Re: Monday, October 12, 2020 FJ Poll (SPOILERS)

I first pondered 2010, hit on nothing, started thinking of insects... Stumbled onto Butterfly in my head, and vaguely remembered that there was a butterfly sanctuary in Denver that I almost went to with a past girlfriend some 20 years ago... And then even more vaguely remembered that I had been told...

Missed only $1,000 in both Behind the Voices and Furniture. Another second or two and I could have gotten "armoire", but no way was Natalie Wood happening.
She didn't float up, huh? :)

Re: TD 453 - Quiz Bowl

The description on the Google Form doesn't appear to match the question above.

Above: Name a current MLB stadium that has ever hosted a NCAA bowl game or NHL regular season game.

Google Form: Current NFL stadium to host a college bowl game and/or NHL regular season game.

Which is it? :)

Re: Season 37 Preemptions

I don't think KGO bothered to show Jeopardy at all on Wednesday... The 3am time you have listed was something called "Tamron Hall", according to DirecTV.

Same thing is listed tonight.

Only Toque I've ever heard of is those tall white hats that chefs wear. Doesn't sound like a "heavy stocking cap" to me... Surprised the players found "Artificial Heart" so difficult.

Re: Monday, September 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Am I the only one who feels like the quality of writing has really going down this season? No, you're not. I've noticed, too. The Colorado/Colorado State clue could have been written more clearly, and there was another tonight that I can't think of right now... but J-Archive isn't loading for me atm.

Re: Monday, September 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The clue asked for "this state school". I felt Colorado was fine because one is not required to repeat words that are already in the clue. I would also have been fine with a BMS. I'm not fine with the straight neg, especially retroactively. This. Good thing this didn't directly alter the game outco...

Did the reverse psychology on Q6: Everyone will remember Richard Hatch (if only for his tax issues), but no one will want to put him down, so I'll go with him instead of dropping Q6. And surely everyone will put down Conga for Q7, so I'll drop that one. Oh well, so close, yet so far... Funny... I b...

Re: ACM Awards category poll (9/16/20 spoilers)

I just now made the mistake of looking for a video of this Kelsea Ballerini person... My ears are bleeding. So far as the clues go, I only got the Johnny B. Goode one. Probably should have gotten Old Dominion, even though, like many others on here, I'd never heard of the group. Shoulda pulled if on ...

I dunno about the others, but Stay Clam is often used currently, though often shortened to something like "I clammed" instead of "I stayed clam".
