Re: Friday, November 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nice job by all three, but part of me wanted to send all three of them to bed without any supper for not knowing that Dak and Zeke play for MY DALLAS COWBOYS. OK, they can have supper, but still....

i liked maya...well before what she did with final jeopardy...loved how she left off "the" when she responded with ukraine....most americans love putting "the" with the country name for some reason...but wagering on the final was fricking foolish and now i will be rooting against her Ditto. I found...

Re: Wednesday, November 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This material was probably appropriately challenging for teens. I blew threw it (as most grown-up J! fans should) with ease. 47 right, 3/3 on DDs, instaget FJ. And yet this doesn't even make the top ten list of reasons I wouldn't mind being a teen again. But that's another story.... Great job by the...

We also had a LOTF-related project. All of the boys in the class were sent to an island. Most of us came back. Well, I was going to try a one-liner like this, but yours is much better. Thanks for the LOTD--laugh of the day. And the rest of you, thanks for your input. I still say that was a really n...

LOTF was an involuntary precall; still I can't quite believe they dipped into that well yet again... :roll:
I suppose Maggie was thinking of a different kind of shell. Glad nobody guessed All Quiet on the Western Front... ;)
That last Remarque was uncalled for.

"British? Hmm...shell? Beach... *conjures a mental image* ...Lord of the Flies? Yeah, 1954 sounds about right." *shrug* They all count. I did not know the date of LOTF, so that was no help. But British made me think of a British author (some times I'm so smart!) and "shell" also made me think of be...

Re: Monday, November 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm not going to fault Tim's wager as winning the game is the one sure way to guarantee moving on. He may have felt social studies was a strength, too. I personally probably would have bet 0, but I'm a naturally conservative wagerer. Under the circumstances they were in in this game, betting $0 isn...

Re: Monday, November 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was Tim unclear on how these tournaments go with respect to his FJ wager - or incredibly supremely confident?? If it were just confidence, why not go all in? The $1-lockout wager clearly suggests he thought he had to win the game in order to advance, which is hard to imagine since I'm pretty certai...

Maya's response of "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" got me rooting for her. Same here. There have been some ads for Dear Evan Hansen during Jeopardy! itself on WABC (NY). So thanks, whatever's been making WTNH's signal hard to watch. I didn't know it involved social media, but I knew it was a rec...

I have also not heard of that musical, though musicals are one of my worst categories. Musicals are also not one of my stronger categories, although in many of the cases where I have no clue, I at least have to admit at the reveal that I HAVE heard of the musical in question. Not so this one. Absol...

Holy crap Mary Ann is good. Maybe it was just me but she seemed to be just a bit behind on the buzzer in J, but came on strong in DJ when everyone else was slowing down coming up with responses for the harder clues. My impression exactly. She looked OK early on, but once she got up a head of steam ...

Alex announced the Teen Tournament starting on Wednesday. For those that like the orderly approach of the ten games M-F & M-F the move is necessary due to election coverage on Tuesday preempting the show in multiple markets. I did not make this connection, so thanks for clarifying. The election of ...

Jonathan corrected Alex’s calling him a professional curler and changed it to semi-professional at best.

Re: FJs for the 10/22/18 week

Just Sunday evening (2 days after this game) I tuned in to an episode of my favorite guilty pleasure "Ancient Aliens." The episode had to do with symbols of royal authority (throne, crown, scepter, etc.) And there, big as life, was mention (with film footage) of the Stone of Scone as it was used in ...

One more for Blarney Stone. I need to move Stone of Scone closer to the front of my mental rolodex. i said blarney stone as well...had never heard of stone of scone before My first thought (and I even wrote it down) was Blarney Stone, even though I'm pretty sure that's Irish :roll: and not English....
