Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

+1 Morisot. I had scribbled “bonheur” on my notebook but had no name recognition. I figured Morisot was later so wasn’t surprised to be wrong there

Re: Monday, September 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can't really blame the contestants for avoiding Nasdaq X. Oh, I can. I was screaming at the TV! I hesitated on the John C. Calhoun DD. It's always exciting when the last clue of the round is a DD. Not sure I would have had the nerve to go all in on that bottom row clue, though. Precalled Montessori...

My drug fiend was Keith Richards. Didn't even think of Ozzy Osbourne.

I thought about Estonia but went with Turkmenistan. In retrospect I wish I’d gone for a BWA attempt of Kyrgyzstan.
This went over my head. Explanation please

I just remembered that I read this article when it was published in Feb. Yesterday i didn't quite remember the facts, but I'm sure it unconsciously gave me confidence. Always useful to read the arts pages of any good newspaper... https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/20/arts/design/vida-americana-mexican...

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

I posted this on the LL board, but am I supposed to know what sodium carbonate is? I mean, I can do the chemistry but washing soda means absolutely nothing to me. Looking it up after the fact, I guess they made glass out of it? I spent so much time wondering if I should put sodium bicarbonate, bica...

I have a list of common Jeopardy! coin flips and today I lost my own toss on Daniel Boone / Davy Crockett :shock: I'd like to think I would have reviewed my notes during the time between The Call and tape day :oops: Just could not pull Winslow Homer tonight. Sad we didn't see 3/5 clues in that categ...

My opponent missed Great Barrier Reef AND gave me 3 points for it. Wonder what he was thinking there? I can’t even think of another plausible answer!

Re: Monday, September 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Franki guessed "thesis" which wasn't as good as their desired "topic" (which I got). But it doesn't seem exactly wrong either. 1. Was Franki negged for "thesis sentence?" All the years I was in h.s./college, "thesis sentence" was the preferred term. I know that was back when the earth was cooling, ...

Season 37!!!

Overall, the new design looks pretty good, but I don't love the Daily Double visual.

Relatively easy game but no luck on Final. I've spent so much time in France that I associate the Pantheon with Paris.

I've heard The Chase has opened up Oregon and Arizona to eligibility, if it's true, I would suspect Jeopardy will be doing the same.

Re: Looks Like Jeopardy! Has Resumed Production

Last week, an LA-based contestant was called for a tape date on Aug 3rd. I haven't heard of any other tapings. Hoping my phone rings soon... I will fly, I will drive, I will quarantine as long as required, whatever I need to do I will do - I AM READY! Our best bet is to relocate to LA temporarily a...
