Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Another season, another middle-of-the-pack A rundle finish. My latest referral had it rough, finishing in the relegation zone in B, after a season where he gave the same number of correct responses as his opponent in 9 matches, and went 0-7-2 in those matches. Two more wins would have sufficed to ke...

Re: Tuesday, September 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

What was the TOM for "judo" on You Gotta Fight for $200? I almost WAGged "karate" because I felt it was "go for the obvious" enough, but nope. I wouldn't say there was TOM for any martial art, but judo and tae kwon do are the only martial arts (well, the only Asian ones) that have been Olympic spor...

Re: Full Credit Rolls

That's it. My tapes were generally a revolving door for timeshifting purposes, so I would just record over shows as I went along. I saved the 2009 ToC, and saw in this thread that I could help a little, but that's as far as it goes with me.

Re: Full Credit Rolls

February 6, 2007 and February 12, 2007 could be the next possible dates of full credit rolls, from that month's Teen Tournament. If you get back in the credits game, you should have credit rolls from all five quarterfinal games and all three semifinal games that originally aired from February 5-14,...

Re: Friday, September 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Surprised to see no complaints over the Air Force clue. It wasn’t 1760 PlayStations, it was 1760 PlayStation 3s. I was wavering based on the date given if this would be PS2 or PS3 and might not have buzzed if I was on the stage. Felt like the response of PlayStation should’ve been negged or at leas...

Re: Jeopardy Credit Roll Transcripts

Yeah. I'm just trying to make sure things are clear, because if they're not clear--if credits transcripts can't be matched to shows--the usefulness of having transcripts in degraded because then we can't accurately log who among the crew came and who left and when. It seems to me that there's not n...

Re: Jeopardy Credit Roll Transcripts

This one has no date/show number. It says it's a sample. "Sample" means one thing picked from a set as representative of the set. Since this is apparently not that, I have to assume the word that was meant to be used was "fictitious". A sample can also be an example to follow at a later point when ...

Re: Thursday, September 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Saturday Night and Sunday Morning clue was made to be guessable without knowing of the film, but I had heard of it in one place before Thursday: on a Mel Brooks/Carl Reiner album. It was the third album of theirs with a 2000 Year Old Man segment, but they had recorded it at the Cannes Film Festi...

Playing devil's advocate, how did they know that Joe said "Silver Springs" and not "Silver Spring's"? Granted, that could apply to any proper noun that has an inappropriate S added to it. If the clue was "His second term as US president started in 1997", you could say "What is Clinton's?" and it wo...

I'd never heard of Five Moons or the three women in that question, but I knew of only one set of famous Native American sisters, with or without a last name; luckily that set had a last name, and it was the correct answer. I'm not surprised to see the low get percentage. (I could name Maria but not ...

the clue wasn’t even close to being pinned. As you said, other NASCAR drivers has been in the #24 recently. But there’s also many other racing circuits to consider, Indycar, F1, and countless smaller circuits. The clue basically said name the most famous driver of a #24 car. ...who's doing cancer-r...

If Diego Rivera's name crossed my mind, it was probably softer than a breath. Picasso was my WECIB response.

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think the Berry/Barry pronunciation discussion is moot, not only because the official statement on the matter made no reference to pronunciation, but also because J! has had "scary cherry" as a correct response in a Rhyme Time category.

Never knew "myriad" referred to a specific number. I actually knew the root before I knew that particular word. My dad had a book (it's still around here somewhere) called The Insomniac's Dictionary that I got into as a kid that had a bunch of stuff about words. One section had a bunch of -ocracy a...
