Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

&#$% YES! He certainly deserves it, but the fact that he's the 1st? That's just moronic. Definitely. At least that one writer who admitted he wasn't going to vote for Rivera (because he hates the closer role IIRC) had the decency to not submit a ballot, which preserved the unanimity. Or maybe he ju...

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

Four players have been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America: closer Mariano Rivera, designated hitter Edgar Martinez, and starting pitchers Roy Halladay and Mike Mussina. Martinez was elected in his final year on the writers' ballot. From wher...

Re: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ. It must suck to be in 2nd place and see a clue that easy. Also must suck to see the leader fail to make the cover wager. "You see? he should've bet it all!!!" That's definitely what we want to teach the viewers at home. Yup. Throw another 4Xer onto the pile. What's this, 4 in a row who ...

"Seasons? Is it a historical musical? Err.....geez what would a musical have to do with the four seaso....OH!!!!" Finally all those damn Jersey Boys ads come in handy. I wouldn't have known (or cared) what the show was about without them.

When in doubt, blurt out Freud. Complete WAG, but they all count. 9300 didn't cover Jocelyn, but at least I can see the logic. Why the hell did Jocelyn bet 10000?!? (Yes, I know, probably a Nice Round Number...damnit.) At least her DD wagers probably didn't make a difference; I definitely wasn't a f...

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

That capitals question was the perfect time to methodically work your way across the map and figure it out, rather than bounce around and get mixed up. I thought he might blunder into the right answer by double counting one of the "City"s he called out first, but instead he second-guessed himself ou...

"Moved capitals? Don't Say Sri Lanka, don't say Sri Lan -- aw sh...oh, they just wanted Colombo? Thank god I didn't have to pronounce Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte." Close-to-but-not-quite-instaget FJ.

Re: Wednesday, December 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So let me be that person: Wonder if anyone would try to be funny and go with -4 for the $600 clue *raises hand* sure would! My exact answer at home was '4 or -4' but if I were on the show? Definitely -4. It was a free $3000, gotta spice it up somehow. Also not sure why we're spoilering this. Cwmd--...

Re: J! All-Star Fantasy League

It would help immensely to know the matchups. Or the format, for that matter. Otherwise, not much reason to pick anything other than heavy chalk. The format has not been made known? I thought it was just me not paying attention. I have no idea how this thing is going to work. It mostly just strikes...

The instaget of instagets. Remus -> Romulus -> Romulans (ok FINE I've watched every second of Trek and knew the Romulan star system cold, sue me). I'm kinda surprised that it was a FJ clue at all. Jolan tru, J! writers.

25 second solve for FJ. I was able to quickly eliminate the first five books, all of the ones named after people, and ones like Jugdes/Kings/Chronicles, and ended up with a Psalms/Ecclesiastes coin flip that landed right.

For $10,000 today, a contestant had to name the disputed region between India and Pakistan. (The choices were Bhutan, Kashmir, Kathmandu, and Hindu Kush.) That seems way easier to me than what car model Oprah gave away. way easier....never heard of hindu kush...thought it was some sort of drug stra...
