Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I almost put down "Chicago dog", then reread and went "Passyunk sounds like a NJ or PA thing... Pennsylvania sandwich? Philly cheesesteak!" Took a lucky W to close out the week; thankfully my opponent from Leeds hadn't heard of The Partridge Family.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I misunderstood the question and put all three. Didn't end up mattering, as I lost 5(3)-9(6). My record is now a perfect 2-2-2 going into MD7.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

My opponent yesterday (from Ireland) gave me (a Canadian) 3 points on the hockey question. It wouldn't have made any difference to the overall result, but I just thought it funny that given what this country is known for, they might have defended differently. ETA: I picked Ovechkin, FWIW. I remember...

Re: Friday, January 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Penalties in minutes", or PIM, is how it's usually notated on a box score.

Feels like a bloody Kids' Week episode after the first three nights of GOAT.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Holy hot damn, Brad Rutter lost a match of Jeopardy! against two meatbags. The People's Champ, Ken Jennings, wins night one. That alone is probably the biggest J! news of the modern era.

FJ! took me longer than I care to admit, but I got there before the music ended. Went down the garden path towards Westerns first, then briefly thought of What's My Line? when seeing Sunday, before finally going "Oh, 1964. Beatles. Ed Sullivan."

Re: Monday, September 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another couple of subtle graphical changes: the clue zoom now "eases" as it gets to its final position (this is more noticeable with the bottom row clues), and the over-the-shoulder Daily Double graphic eases in, eases out, and the rotation as the clue is revealed is slightly faster. These speeds we...

Re: Why Is Wheel's Season Shorter than J's?

Not only is Wheel's season shorter, but they're in production for fewer tape days than J!. The reason is because they shoot 6 shows per tape day, not 5. This 6th show is placed in one of 5 various weeks called America's Game . This also includes team weeks, so occasionally there is an America's Game...

Re: Previous J! contestants: Did you track money in real time?

Playing at home (not against the show, but playing the 2003 PC game produced by Infogrames) I find that I don't look at the scoreboard with any regularity until it's time to make a wager.
