Re: Friday, April 19, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another run of the mill $80k payday. This is normal, yet not normal. J! isn't this easy. Have I been watching a different game show all these years!? J! isn't this easy! I missed nearly all of KJ's run due to RL. Is this what it was like to watch? Instaget FJ. This feels like it should've been a tri...

Like others, I went down the "seeking" path and tried Green Lantern. My wife informs me he's not even a Marvel character.
Justice League = DC comics, so naming a Marvel character would've been worse ;)

Re: Thursday, April 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another day, another effortless 47k going into FJ, ~40 clues answered by himself, 26k FJ wager. Ho hum. This is routine. A contestant winning $74k in one game is routine. What is going on. "C. King? C K -> Clark Kent???....oh no duh, sea king!" Maybe someday I'll get around to watching the DC movies...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What on earth are we even watching...the video game comparisons are appropriate: it's like we're watching someone who has mastered the game, and is just competing against himself to beat his own top score. One of these days, I would like to see his reaction if he missed one of these massive FJ wager...

I spent half the DJ round shouting "hunt the daily doubles!!!!!!!!" at the TV. Oh well.

So close to being able to break his own record safely. There's just no words left; sit back and enjoy the ride.

Instaget FJ.

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

Tiger Woods wins the 2019 Masters. It's his 5th green jacket, 15th major title, and first major win since the 2008 US Open.

I honestly didn't think he'd win another major.

Re: Friday, April 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

During the break I wondered if he'd bet the ~31k he could afford to safely. Like there was ever any doubt :lol: what an easy week of FJs! How many episodes do you think he can go for? Until he misses a big DD and his opponents take advantage (so that the board being drained of high-value clues works...

Only 27k? What a scrub! Welcome to the ranks of the superchampions, James. Not that there was much doubt. One of these days, he'll miss that big, game-sealing DD and be vulnerable to a FJ miss, I just don't know when.

Not-quite-instaget FJ. There's a video HOF!!??! I'd like to see that list as well.

So, just so I'm clear, Michelangelo went unused, but 4 people went with AJ Pollock!? I don't know why this game still surprises me, my head is still swimming from that nonsensical Merlin Olsen sheep.

Well, that was a televised murder. Holy shit.

Also, if they going to keep serving up FJs like this, just cut him a check for a million now and save the trouble.

NCAA basketball:

Men: A year after they were the first 1-seed to lose to a 16, U. of Virginia Cavaliers def. Texas Tech Red Raiders 85-77 (OT) for their first title. Sweet redemption.

Women: Baylor Lady Bears def. Notre Dame Fighting Irish 82=81 for their third title. (Does J! ever ask?)

A 5 day champ!!! I had forgotten what it was like. Welcome to the TOC, Steven. Solid and workmanlike.

Started with Prince, slapped myself for how wrong it was, did the math to get the King, then came back around for the Queen.

No idea why this FJ was near-instaget, but something about that being the last line just made sense for Pinocchio.

Still trying to figure out Natasha's 7400 wager. Insert "player throws away a win with poor wagering" grumble here.

Mr. perfect bracket, Gregg Nigl is 49/49 with Tenn (78-77) over Purdue just under two minutes to go. Jinx.
Jinx complete. Though that foul on the 3 attempt in regulation was garbage.

Only thing I could think of that would have 3.5M+ people moving to and from a city for only one week a year was the hajj -> Mecca, done. I'm assuming it's an extra line to handle the load, and that the clue isn't implying that no one needs to take a train to Mecca the other 51 weeks of the year.

$7000 lost on two tough 1600 box DDs, with both misses followed up by Jonathan snatching up absolute jokes in the 2000 box (bioluminescense? I, Claudius!??! Are you serious, J! writers!?). And all they get out of it is a tie for the lead, which meant a tie at 0 after a TS FJ. Yikes. Dave cost himsel...
