Re: FJs for the 1/20/20 week

For the supercontinent, I started with The Traveling Wilburys, but I corrected myself quickly enough that I think Alex wouldn't have had time to rule against me. More like superincontinent given their ages. What does that make you and me? When they formed, Roy Orbison, the oldest member of the grou...

Re: Tuesday, January 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As an unapologetic Alanis Morissette fan, I was rooting for her red-headed sister to take this game. I wondered if anyone else would notice the resemblance. On other forums I've seen younger Don Rickles and Michael Chiklis ( The Commish timeframe) for Dennis. Other forums? I am hurt. Truly hurt.

In my mind (influenced by TV/movies/books - with no actual knowledge) Maine is not a hustle & bustle, rush-rush state.
If you drive US1 mid-coast, you will see how right you are. Though part of it is that Maine has the highest median age of any state.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

It has already been pointed out to me that potential spoilers had been revealed as a result of posting who has taped when. So out of an abundance of caution, let's stop discussing this. Thanks.

Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well done by Dennis for knowing how to open play in NIAGARA FALLS with the proper "Slowly I Turned" cadence. Credit to Superman II for my knowing the name of the water vehicle there. Others might remember it from The Office or from Wonderfalls. Some will remember it from, you know, having been on i...

Thank you! I haven't seen the game yet so hopefully I look way less nervous than I was. You looked fine. Even if we hadn't seen what we saw last week. But damn, you looked you were going to cruise to victory. Sorry it didn't happen for you! And we here at Chez alietr were impressed with your pop cu...

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

I don’t see James as a villain. He makes bets based on his daughter’s birthday, how evil can he be? He also is a rather low key player and doesn’t do a bunch of waving his hands around to draw attention to himself. I think he would excel at the snarky insults that Labbett was so good at. I'm going ...

Re: The GREATEST OF ALL TIME FJs for the 1/13/20 week

I did also get Lawrence Welk. How many other famous people are from North Dakota? Roger Maris? Roger Maris is from Hibbing, Minnesota. He spent much of his early years in Fargo, though, so maybe that's what he was thinking about. His museum (such as it is) is in a mall in Fargo. I think North Dakot...

I just barely avoided the boxes of shame by having stayed at Snowmass when I visited Aspen (a LOT cheaper to stay there instead of in Aspen).

Usually I make fun of TPH for not knowing something, but I'm stunned that the aluminum coin is only polling 56%. What else could it have been?

Personally, enough already with the special tournaments. GOAT was wonderful. Let's bask in its beauty for a while.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've been to enough tapings to know that there's no way to do it live. Way too many things go wrong in a typical taping that take time to resolve.

Re: Tuesday, January 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

One of the instances to which mas3cf alluded had Brown University as an answer in the category, "All the Pretty Colors." AT even gave out with an "Ahhh" as he pronounced "pretty colors." Is brown pretty? Might be debatable in real life. But it is definitely pretty in the Jeopardy universe. I certai...

And an interview with Stephanie Hull, who achieved the lowest score ever.

It must suck to hold a record and have an asterisk on it.
