Re: Monday, April 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was a matter of figuring out why Lincoln would say that about him, and once it clicked that he was mocking him for inaction, that + 1862 made it a cinch.

Chaka Khan... :lol:

"Strange things happen under the lights", so I'm going to assume that Lauren just froze on that defibrillator DD.

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

Yikes. I should've just played it off the archive, that was painful.

After the FJ category reveal, I was mentally marking it down as a miss, but a hit movie duet from 2018? I can do that.

+1 idiom (not too sure about that one)
+1 pugilistic
+1 I can't believe they missed 'shiners'

Re: Moday, April 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Had a few good music categories recently; today was back to normal (i.e., mediocre). 2/5 (400 + 1200), but at least I was 4/5 having heard of the bands (WTF is Vampire Weekend).

Instaget FJ. I thought it had maybe one or two hints too many, but Beni managed to miss it so maybe not? *shrug*

I'm sick of the R&RJ theme being used in college tourneys too, but WTF was the music today?!
I believe they've moved from recycling the Rock & Roll J! music to recycling the Sports J! music.

Re: Monday, April 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

16W plus the 2 misses on the FJ! clue and 11TS. Yikes! Brutal to watch. I was not expecting such a rough game from the college kids. For most of the game I was worried Marshall and Sirad would keep shooting themselves in the foot and both finish in the red. If I've seen/heard it called "the big dit...

Re: Thursday, April 2, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I assume "deification" is what they were going for in 11-Letter Words for $800? Hope so, because that was my answer ;) Instaget FJ, but I have no idea why. I don't think I've ever read the book, I know I haven't seen the movie, but I had it the second I saw Twysden's name. No idea where I would've ...

Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So Michonne went into FJ with the lead, got FJ right, and lost. I could spend a week criticizing that wager, but why bother? The result speaks for itself.

Instaget FJ. We're all too young? Shush, Alex, there's this thing called reruns.

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

Assuming this passes and we're not still dealing with the outbreak deep into April, I could see them giving everyone a week or so of extended ST with a 144-ish game sched starting ~May 1st. Which 18 games they'd cancel are anyone's guess (they still need tons of interleague, with the odd number of t...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

That's one harsh ruling. It's fair, though. I'm sure you'd agree they wouldn't take, "What is 100 10-millions?", so they can't take any other similar restatement of the problem. I decided to search the archive for similar rulings, and this popped up: Show #5719 - Thursday, June 18, 2009 THE BRITISH...

I'm having trouble making 'apex' fit that DD clue, which, despite Alex's comments during the reversal, seemed pretty clear to me. But I'm not an astronomer. The miss I saw coming instantly was the party to go with Democratic-Republicans as it was only a matter of which contestant was going to say Wh...

Ova = Eggs. Kids' book with "egg" in the title? Uh... "virent" sounds like verde/veridian/green, so let's do Green Eggs and Ham.
Ditto. I am curious what the exact, literal translation of the Latin title is (probably nothing more interesting than 'green eggs! green ham!!').

That was almost Ryan Fenster-esque for Bruce, yet it ended in a lock anyway. We'll see if he's got a few games in him. Workers + spreading the gospel around the world?
