Re: FJs for the 3/30/20 week

She distinctly remembers sitting there and watching with a jar of Jiffy peanut butter and a spoon. Not only does McGruff date no further back than 1980, but Jiffy peanut butter has never existed! (Apologies if you knowingly inserted that detail as a joke.) You forgot to correct my spelling of the B...

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

British singer Dame Vera Lynn has died at the age of 103. In other news, Olivia de Havilland turns 104 in a couple of weeks. And Beverly Cleary turned 104 a couple of months ago. Both women could easily provide material for their own category. My recommendation to the writers is don't wait until af...

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

I wonder if I had Covid 19, since I was sick for a couple of days in early Feb after a trip to DC. I could even say I hope I had it. Can't say i think I had it...I expect to get an antibody test next week.

THE DREADED OPERA CATEGORY Due to COVID-19, St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Theatre rescheduled their performance of this opera to the 9th, 10th, 12th, and 13th of December. What is the Ring Cycle? Good clue, with a tricky TOM, but is the Ring Cycle a single opera? Too bad they couldn't stretch it to a ...

Grapes of Wrath is also plausibly biblical, given that the song is about Revelations. I guess there's no shortcut to reading the books...I'm in your boat.

Re: Monday, September 17, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The hardest clue in the rhyming terms category was the $400. I think the writers misfired there. (Here's the archived game for discussion purposes: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6102#double_jeopardy_round ) Interesting. I guess it's too late for a poll request. :) The rhyming clues ...

THE WEST COAST Approximately 750 feet separate the brass and terrazzo monuments to these two US presidents. Who are Reagan and Trump? (Hollywood Walk of Fame) I don't think I'd be off-base complaining about the choice of the word "monument" here. It struck me as odd too. But what word would you sug...

Re: Thursday, February 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

In the interview segment, did Justin mispronounce "heroine" ( a la someone who's only ever read the word, not heard it spoken) or is there a play that features a "hero-iney"? Perhaps it's a "hero-whiny"?? Or even "Hero-ione," a play on Hermione, a good name for an "old-fashioned melodrama." I feel ...

Re: Reruns to start May 4th

So now we are set for the next five weeks. This is really going to freak people out who aren’t fanatics like us. No announcement was given and now we will have three weeks of random episodes. I wonder what they have planned after the TOC. Freak people out? Freak out is what fanatics do. I imagine o...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 6/11/2020

MIGHT have gotten "sin till late" but "a prime time hour" isn't late. Pretty much by definition. "Late" starts AFTER prime time. So I felt that clue steered everyone in the wrong direction.

Re: Wednesday, June 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't know how I would have gotten Final right if I hadn't read this fact previously. (Although I didn't know it was a "bestseller," so to speak. Seems weird for a book that would be relatively dry and uncontroversial, as opposed to his typical agnostic offerings.) I don't know, apparently the bo...
