Re: Wednesday, November 11, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That was the worst FJ since Brat/Blatt. Whoever wrote it should be put on probation, if not fired. No, the two 'rhyming Davids' clue was still worse. It was Sheldon Cooper-caliber irritating('Fun With Flags That Rhyme With Higgs Bosun!'). This one was maybe a semi-advanced Steve Urkel on the Nerd-o...

Got Your 6 was my only get in Veterans, because Wheel plugged gotyour6.org yesterday. WLT microscope on Technology for $200? Lach Trash: Material Girl. 3/5 in Triples.

Re: Friday, November 6, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

"Wherefore art thou, Romeo?" had no business being any lower than $400." "Wherefore art thou, Romeo?" also has no business being answered in any format other than that, the Jeopardy-style "What is" in front really grinds my gears on responses that are questions in their own right. Every once in a w...

Re: Wednesday, October 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I predict the new champ goes down tomorrow. She made so many wild guesses and missed so many Pavlovian clues (Sibelius, GB 41) that I was wondering how she ever passed the online test. Sean played a lackluster game. I got FJ pretty quickly. JBoard does not encourage the sort of comments I would lik...

Re: Friday, October 16, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

WLT Alexander the Great or Chicago at $400? The first referenced 'Macedonian leader'. Nine times out of ten, that's Alexander(Otherwise, it would be his father, Philip, but clues about him tend to mention his son). The Chicago clue mentioned State Street, which is pretty much a giveaway(like Park A...

Re: Friday, October 16, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

What a moronic FJ. I knew it was going to be wordplay and that I would miss it. Guessed the Padres. I actually thought of the Phillies about 10 seconds after the think music ended, and now that I see Brian's explanation of the clue, I have to say that econgator is exactly correct here. That was a m...

Mike Zerg :) Didn't get a ZergCam, though. I said Jordan just to say something. Given that I'm fairly bad at geography, it's not the worst guess I've ever made, but I think there was enough knowledge in my brain to have gotten the correct response. Agree with econgator that two astronauts should le...

Re: Thursday, October 15, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I misread the "Tempted" clue and didn't realize it was talking about Squeeze the band. Instead I read "squeeze hit" as suicide squeeze. Clam. Anyone else groan at that clue? Maybe I've just heard some truly awful wordplay lately and thought that was right up there with the worst of it. That would b...

Re: Wednesday, October 7, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The Montefusco DD was an example of a clue where Matt's age is a liability. While the correct response could have been sussed out from the clue itself, it's probably hard to make the leap from "Montefusco" to "Monte Cristo" in 15 seconds or whatever the time is that you're alotted for a DD. And "th...

I hope no one hurt themselves laughing while they flailed away at that Iceland clue.
I'm afraid Susan's attention-span issues in that clue and on FJ! were amusing only to her.

Re: Wednesday, October 7, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

There was confusion over Matt's DD wager. When he said five, Alex interpreted it as $5000 and said his score was now $8000-something, No; Alex said Matt's *lead* was $8,000-something, not his *total*. I had to go back and watch twice to confirm what Alex said. The one time in 32 seasons he gives th...

There was confusion over Matt's DD wager. When he said five, Alex interpreted it as $5000 and said his score was now $8000-something, but the scorekeeper reduced Matt's score by only $5. Nothing verbal was said about that in the remainder of the program. Obviously the scorekeeper interpreted a wage...

I've never been a fan of Trebek, and I'm even less of one today. When I saw the FJ clue, I thought of Shirley Temple -- but Trebek decided the world needed to hear him imitate the woman the clue referred to, and as poor as his imitation was, I knew it was meant to be Eleanor Roosevelt, and not Shir...

I must be the only boardie who didn't notice the "Boom!" I must pay far less attention to the contestants' behavior than anyone else! No one got "Blues"?

Re: Tuesday, September 22, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That was a strange TS. It's like they either forgot that re-elections mean that one of them was a president, or in the new champ's case...did he really forget Gore was Clinton's VP (insert political jokes here I guess)? As is usually the case in FJs like this, I managed to pick the wrong direction ...
