Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Donaudampfschiffahrtselektrizitätenhauptbetriebswerkbauunterbeamtengesellschaft was an organization (perhaps apocryphal) that existed (or not) in pre-WWI Vienna, Austria, involved in the transportation of cargo and passengers on what river? I recognized it from Strauss’s “An der schönen, blauen Don...

Someone on the staff must be telling them to say it.
Yup. They’re all coming out of the same guest host boot camp

It still irks me that they read the scores as “dollars”. It’s superfluous and sounds jarring since Alex never said it

Putting aside the pseudo science and fake cures, I thought Dr. Oz was awful but yeah ok, it was the first day. Too many speech issues for me. This guy works in TV?! Next!

Re: Friday, March 12, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Negged with Shenandoah, which is frustratingly close and also from the Algonquian. Alas. I will never in a million years understand that wager from second place. There are so many options there between $1400 and $7200 (I'm rounding) that would be justifiable. Any single one of those and Keith wins....

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Before I got to the 'two streets meet' part, I thought the question was going to be about Hopper's painting "Chop Suey". That would have been a happy change of pace from all the Nighthawks questions. Yeah, you'd think "Nighthawks" was the only thing Hopper ever painted. Did you know Hopper did clow...

A fine debut by Couric. Fine as in adequate. But we don’t tune in for adequate. Pet peeve - all these guest hosts saying “dollars” when reading the scores. Alex didn’t say it and it sounds jarring now. I can’t unhear it! I hope she improves over the next 2 weeks. I do want them all to succeed, but t...

I zeroed in on the Louvre instantly but then went astray on the no foreigners pin, thinking oh, they mean I. M. Pei so it’s *not the Louvre. Still, I assumed one of the players would figure it out

Colony Collapse Disorder- I think that’s a first for Jeopardy! and I’m here for it Already bored of Mike Richards’ supercilious “nooo” Like Mark, I wasted half the think time parsing the words in the clue, hit pause, and got to Bibi right around (probably after) the last note of think music.

How many got the quilt question here? I was nervous assigning defense. I knew it because I live in Alabama and have heard about the quilting ladies. I just didn’t know if it was widely known or if it could be puzzled out. It seemed to play hard, though not as hard as Joker’s Wild. I got it, thanks ...

Re: Thursday, February 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For the Ezra Pound clue the term "imagist" made me think of an artist or painter. How'd that one play for everybody else? My Pavlov for "Imagist" is Amy Lowell, but the clue said "he", so I just said Lowell hoping it was referring to another member of that prominent family. The fact that Pound was ...

An easy final always favors the contestant who is in the lead. I couldn't believe how easy that final was. I don't know why Ken couldn't pull it or why it took Aaron until the last second. I can't even think of a Cosmetics company called Mac or a playwright who is from there. MAC Cosmetics is big b...
