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

I didn't like the wording of the FJ! clue. It sounded like the answer was looking for an expression, which was the way all three contestants, as well as myself, seemed to understand the clue. Laissez faire here. I'm with you on both counts. Put L.F. because (and only because) it was better than no ...

Maybe today's liquor category inspired it, but I propose a drinking game for Savannah's tenure: "You Got It!" 🍸
Thanks, but my old body couldn't tolerate that much booze.

Lou Brock?
My guess is that the contestant heard "walks" (i.e. bases on balls) and conflated it with stolen bases, where Brock would have been a plausible guess.

NHO the frog hair expression. :? I'd never heard of that or "one swallow does not make a summer" (which seems like a good candidate for a "that's what he said!" quip). Each area has its own seasonal visitor. San Juan Capistrano (IIRC, Southern California) is visited by the swallows each summer. Goo...

"Only" $9800 in Lach Trash tonight, after two nights in a row of $10K+. What's up this week that there are so darned many stand-and-stares on really gettable clues?

Re: Tuesday, June 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's always refreshing to hear a contestant start their chit chat time without using the word 'So' at the begining of the first sentence. For that, I was rooting for Robin. There I thought I was all alone in being aggravated by this recent linguistic atrocity. (And yes, I was also rooting for Robin...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Mike Richards is executive producer of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! , and I'm sure Sony won't accept the disruption of Wheel that would occur if Richards took on extra J! duties. So, however he performed, he would be too risky to another valuable Sony property. Not going to get the permanent gig....

A lot of triple stumpers tonight. Nobody on that stage is TOC Worthy. ToC?!?!?! It's been a long time since I've seen three J! contestants leave this much gettable stuff unanswered. I scooped up an even dozen of them myself (possibly more: they came in such rapid order in DJ that it was hard for me...

Wow! I'm just now decompressing after what seemed like an astonishingly fast-paced game. When they came to the finish I thought they would have to stand around and stare at the clock because they had gotten to the finish way before the scheduled end time. All of which made for an excellent game, IMO...

Vijay Balse's gap was what, 13 years between first try and TOC championship? (sorry, Stefan). There could be people from the 80s still trying.
Yes. I'm one of them. My first audition was 1988, And yes, I'm still trying.

Good, solid win by the champ. Many congrats and all props. My long-ago good friend explained to me that in the music conservatory (she was a graduate) they had lots of "in" jokes most likely to be "gotten" by musicians. One of them: What's the difference between a violin and a viola? Answer 1: A vio...

I'm guessing Constantinople would've gotten negged like Byzantium?
"now known as this city" makes Istanbul the only correct option.
You mean, "If you left your girl in Constantinople, she'll be waiting in...."?

Re: FJs for the 4/19/21 week

I haven't read either the comments about the "Tivoli Garden" game or all of this thread. BUT I'm with the contestant who guessed "Neuschwanstein Castle." I mean, if the Castle at Disneyland wasn't inspired by that, I don't know where it came from. To me at least, WICKED negbait.

At the start of each game I write on my score sheet the names of all three contestants, and it's just way easier to write down "Amy Rey" than much longer names. So sue me. LT ...
