Re: Monday, June 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I too know of Bomb Pops but not Firecracker brand popsicles. I got 3/5 in the "GOOD" category--The Good Place, Ginnifer Goodwin, and The Good Dinosaur. For Goodwin I didn't remember the character from Zootopia or that Goodwin had played her. I just recognized her as the actress from Once Upon a Time...

Re: FJs for the 6/10/19 week

NBA didn't affect me, but on Thursday, WNEM announced a "Better Deals" promo show. It only affected Wheel, but their schedule and DirecTV's both said it was also blocking J!, thus causing the DVR not to pick it up. I have my "DVR" (PC with Windows Media Center) set to record Jeopardy! two different...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

BEST PICTURE OSCAR NOMINEES These two men were each the subject of a different 1942 Best Picture-nominated film with "Yankee" in its title Who are Lou Gehrig and George M. Cohan? I like it. Way too complex for regular game play. And too much even for a DD. But with FJ time at my disposal I was able...

I don't understand that "flimflam game" clue at all. I can't think of any terms for revered people that have "con" in them,
I con.
Then what does the other half have to do with "flimflam game"? Conning isn't a "game".
That's exactly what they want you to think.

Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't think of FUBAR but did think of SNAFU, which I might have put down in desperation if I hadn't already thought of glitch. Both my wife and I had SNAFU. I put that down right away and tried to think of something better for the rest of the time, but "glitch" never came to me. I read "The Righ...

Loved the moment when Alex handed control of the board to the wrong person and we heard the yell from offstage and Alex gave us a glimpse into how he keeps track of these things. The ole finger method. Ran the Rhyming Authors category even though my pre-calls of Dickens' Chickens and Twain's Trains ...

Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said "Hellenic" for "Hellenistic" on a 50-50-90. It turns out that the Hellenic era immediately preceded the Hellenistic era. IMO that's some neg-bait right there. Mrs Penguin made the same neg. I paused the show so we could look it up because I figured "Hellenic" would turn out to be an equally ...

Re: Thursday, June 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"It's the Mexican name for the Rio Grande." Wait, isn't "Rio Grande" already a Spanish term? Why would they call it something else when it already HAS a Spanish name?! Same here - thought they were trying to be clever. After I heard the correct response I realized I have heard it somewhere before, ...

Sorry to see the forklift driver go. It was a pitched battle at the end. I felt bad for E.J. but come on - the veto clue was a gift. He must have been thrown by not knowing there actually is a physical document - I didn't know either.
Yeah, I always pictured more of a giant rubber stamp.

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I agree that the writing of the clue has poor syntax, but I don't think the writing would have steered anyone away from the correct response. That's fair enough. If I'd thought of the Viewmaster, I probably would have gone with it. On the other hand, I wonder if I might have gotten a better-worded ...

Any time a player hits a DD and says "I've always wanted to say this Alex..." a trap door opens under their feet. Yes! Well... give it a second and see how they finish. I have several possibilities that I'm going to practice if I get the call: I've always wanted to say this Alex... but I'm too chic...

Alex did a local bumper for a "rescan day" for people still watching via antenna, which I didn't even think was a thing anymore. I still watch via antenna... Oh man, you should try using eyes. They are SUCH an improvement! :lol: I still watch via a recording made from an antenna. The antenna cable ...

Re: Tuesday, June 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Kinda funny, I was thinking how American-centric it is to use a Bengali poet as a hint for the location of a landmark in the western corner of Utar Pradesh. They could've gone with Kipling's description of the Taj Mahal as "the embodiment of all things pure." EDIT: In chasing down that quote, I fou...

Any reason I can't go with ironing pleats instead of creases ...? I think you're good. Even if they're different things, pants can have both, and both can be ironed to make them sharp. I'm guessing the worst you'd have to endure is a "We'll accept that. Pleats or creases. Ok" by which Alex lets eve...
