Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

On the Alaska question my first thought was Gadsden Purchase, and when I let Alaska creep into my mind, I thought it was still during Lincoln's presidency. But slowly 1867 started to feel plausible for Alaska. The one way I had to verify it was to convert the square mileage in the question to acreag...

The OCR read commas for periods and could not handle Ms & Ws.
There's still a "vvas" in J30, and Herodias is "Herodlas" in DJ2.

I was prepared to answer pied piper but then the clue wanted Robert Browning all of a sudden. Who got that one?
I did; I think there was an excerpt of his version in a book of poetry my siblings and I had.

Re: Wednesday, March 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Melis added a "Hi" in her FJ! response. It kind of looks like Ayden though I'm not sure about the "e". I know there's a Turkish name Aydın complete with dotless i. I can't see the mystery character as that, but food for thought. Edit: she confirmed on Facebook that it's Aydin, with a dot (pronounce...

I went to the uploader's channel and watched Addison Goodson's first game. When I was done I did the "swipe down to refresh" thing on the list of videos, and all but one disappeared.

I thought he said he'd played in 45 countries last year, which I assume is employment?
It seems likely that "last year" means "before the pandemic."
He said "in the past couple years."

Who is the missing five timer? Dennis Donohue https://www.j-archive.com/showplayer.php?player_id=2872 He played against all three finalists in his ToC.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I almost said quilt, solely because there had been a question about it as an art form a year and a half ago (Harriet Powers was the artist in that question). But then for no reason I decided that "Street Story Silver" had a nice ring to it.

NATIONALITY RHYMES $400: Joy for those of Geneva Any reason not to count my response of Swiss miss instead of the show's Swiss bliss? What's your justification, that "Joy" is a woman's name and hence a Joy can be a "miss"? I suppose the clue could be about folks who really love hot chocolate... ;) ...

I needed the home of a playwright bit for Avon.
I thought of Zane Grey first, then thought, "It's a $2,000 clue; it can't be that easy" and switched to Louis L'Amour. :/

From 2014: I noticed Bruce Fauman #3 is archived now. Is the date a guess? Also, if Bob's last name isn't confirmed, may I suggest Boem or Boehm? I think I've more or less confirmed that the rightmost player in Bruce Fauman game 3 is Bob Boehm, not Boed. Twitter user @BobbBoehm has "Former Jeopardy!...

Re: BASEBALL NICKNAMES 2/26/21 category [Spoilers]

My dad got Williams before I could pull his name, but I think I would have come up with that, so I gave myself credit. Just $200 and $400 for me, which I count as a victory.
