Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

Prop Joe Diffie up beside the jukebox. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.rollingstone.com/music/music-country/joe-diffie-country-singer-dead-obituary-974556/amp/ That was surprisingly quick. I saw Joe Diffie back in 2005 when recovering from jawbone surgery. A few years back I got his Wikipedia arti...

Re: Thursday, April 2, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Questions & Answers for $1,600 felt like a dreaded game of "Guess the Synonym". I matched neither the contestants nor the writers with "vow". Anyone else misfire on that one? I have heard the oath given as "swear or attest" and that's what I said. Can hardly believe that would have been negged. Jud...

Re: FJs for the 3/23/20 week

I'm shocked to see Friday's FJ (first POTUS to give SotU on TV) polling at only 36%. I missed it (went with Ike) but figured I would be the anomaly and that the collective board probably didn't fall into that trap. Oh well. Frankly surprised to see 68% saying they got the three Yucatan nations, whic...

REMEMBER JAMES GARFIELD had me ready with Charles Guiteau five times and not to be as the clues went other places.

Re: Monday, March 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I completely don't understand contestants who don't know vice presidents and provinces of Canada cold. There aren't that many of either and they ask about them frequently. Look at all the Tom's in that daily double: 1959 Khrushchev Kitchen appliances If you can't tell the Kennedy Brothers apart, th...

Re: Monday, March 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Couple of personal comments, the wedge clue seemed to indicate that the pitching wedge is the highest lofted club in the bag. This is false, in my configuration, I have three other wedges with more loft than my pitching wedge. The pitching wedge is actually the lowest lofted wedge as the gap, sand,...

Posting as requested. The game is archived: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6589 Though not proofread. Thank you for adding this.

Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

REALLY bad game with incredibly tough material and such a lame low scoring win. I think a lot of folks on this board would disagree with the middle portion of your statement. The material was not incredibly tough, as witnessed by how many of us piled up near-record amounts of Lach Trash, nicely han...

Re: Friday, March 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game will be very frustrating for those who have taken & passed the test many times without an audition or THE CALL in wishing this was their day to be on stage. Amen, brother. $9200 in LT was enough for me to take a commanding lead into FJ from the fourth podium. Gotta believe I was far from ...

Re: Thursday, March 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras. At least the one I got wrong borders the Peninsula. Found Adam to be an enjoyable champ, but he doomed himself on that Reagan clue. Same three I had. Thought about Belize and frankly just didn't know. Two of the three were guesses for me and one of the two was ...

For example, if Missouri were in the Big Ten then Kansas City and St. Louis would be correct responses.]

I can relate to Adam as a big fan of street food. I feel it has built my immune system to deal with the current crisis, or any extraterrestrial organisms as well. I didn't realize there were 8 chosen toppings for Chicago dogs, but am very aware that thou shalt not ask for ketchup (or catsup either)...

Impressive comeback by the challengers in the DJ round. 8-) Pre-called Brady Bill. Easy enough to switch to Lend-lease. :mrgreen: :( :D :D on the DDs I had no precall whatsoever. Couldn't imagine where the writers were going. Fortunately, recalled Lend-Lease from seeing it several times in American...

Re: J! to Tape Without Live Audience

As was just posted, my hotel just canceled my reservation for the April 13/14 tape dates. Debating whether I should make an alternate reservation now or just wait a bit - I simply can't imaging they are going to be back to taping by then. I think they are just optimistically waiting until it's clos...
