Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL MASCOTS One of two MLB teams whose chief mascot is a bird despite the team itself not being named for a bird. Who are the Pittsburgh Pirates (the Pirate Parrot) and Washington Nationals (Screech the Eagle)*? (Yes, I am using editorial discretion in promoting Screech over the r...

We're overdrawn on U's from people mispronouncing "nuptial"; we've got to make cutbacks somewhere!

Re: Wednesday, December 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was thinking of Ottawa (forgetting how recently it was a correct FJ response), my dad said New Delhi, and I gave up. Maybe I would have thought of Canberra if I hadn't shut my mind off at the suggestion of New Delhi, but there's no way I can give myself the benefit of the doubt.

Re: Tuesday, November 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first thought on FJ was pen pals, but closer examination of the foreign parts of the clue took me in the right direction. I kind of wanted to see Amy punished for not going all in on the DD; perhaps the extra $1,400 would have prevented the potentially crush-squandering FJ wager. For a while, eve...

This letter of the Greek alphabet & this adjective meaning "stupid" are anagrams of each other.

What are omicron & moronic?

Considering that Greek letter is so much in the news, this was a quick solve
It also helps that the adjective is of Greek origin.

My TV receiver has been acting up this week for the first time in quite a while. Usually what happens is that it turns on at the appointed time, then simply doesn't record and stays on, so I keep a tape in the VCR to catch what's coming through; this saved me on Tuesday. Tonight the receiver didn't ...

Ken seems to have some kind of superhero power other hosts don't have as Dan got another $1000 clue right and Ken called it out for 3 clues right and $3000 on the scoreboard. Does Ken tally contestant correct responses? Marks it on a sheet. In his head? Paid attention to the scores enough to see 10...

I, it’s a tabletop game. I suppose if you use a battlemat and minis it might count.
"Board" can mean "table"!

Is it indeed the ten-minute version of "All Too Well" that's at #1 on the Hot 100? I've seen the record-breaking touted by everyone except Billboard themselves (and considering Tool's "Fear Inoculum" got a Billboard headline for being the longest Hot 100 song ever after it peaked...

I wonder where Amy ranks in terms of their first four games on the show. James and Roger beat her score. Ken and Larissa did not. That is as far as I looked though… Jerome Vered had $81,401 after four games in the pre-doubled era. I think the "first four" ranking probably now begins James...

I got spoiled on FJ. But only two (fully) twentieth-century Ohio Republican presidents should make it easy. My initial inclination was not to count it as a get, but I feel like I'm changing my mind.
