Re: Reretaken Down

This item is probably not newsworthy enough for the Current Events thread, so I'm posting it here: Journeyman QB Josh McCown, who played for 10 different teams in his 17-year NFL career, has retired. The last active player from the 2002 draft, McCown has been playing for so long that he was the one...

Also didn't recognize anything in the "Good" category. Not even the voice of Judy Hopps. Doesn't look like she's been in anything else particularly notable, either. This time I'm with you. That's the first time I can remember going 0-for-5 in a category where there was something in quotes. I've nev...

Only 26% knew Oklahoma when given 1889 and “sooner”?
Didn't even realize that about "sooner" until I saw it mentioned this morning.

Also, Radar is "radio detection and ranging". Not sure why "direction" is being accepted.

Any reason I should know Parks had anything to do with streetcars?
No reason, as she had nothing to do with them. I think this was just an oddly-worded clue that was basically saying that Parks is to buses what Truth was to streetcars.

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

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, nor do I see how "con" has to do with games. A revered person is known as a CONI. Con is related to games because Con Conrad, before he became a songwriter, was a partner of M...

If she mistook Asterix for an asterisk she didn't hit the k very hard. It sounds more like Asteriss to me - not much of a French accent, but an acceptable response... The (lack of) accent is partly why it's hard to be certain what she said, since she uses a short, American i and not a French i, mak...

I suppose I could have got Kamala Harris (said the man with the .381 current events score).
Even if I knew they were presidential hopefuls, I still doubt I would have gotten Harris.

The surprising one for me yesterday was Q1. I had Hamitic and was quite surprised that wasn't the MCWA given the clue that it was named for one of Noah's sons.
Hamitic was my guess.

Like Dan, I said "seppuku" but worried a little bit that they were looking for "hara-kiri". I'm not entirely clear on the distinction or if, at least for J! purposes, they're interchangeable.
They're the exact same thing.

I used to be fairly proficient in Spanish and I've been to San Luis Obispo several times, but Obispo = Bishop felt like new information to me. I wonder if I really NHOI or if it's yet another fact that I've forgotten so completely that I might as well never have known it. I don't ever recall hearin...

Was anyone else thrown by the wording on Entertainment for $200? Alex didn't emphasize the "he" very well, so I couldn't grasp what the clue was asking for.
Yep.

Re: Quick Rules Q

On the note of the tie for second place for FJ!, I seem to remember that in the past, if there was a three-way tie for 0 in a semi-final game, then the player leading at the end of DJ! would go into the finals. Maybe as a wild card, if there were too many other zeros from the non-winners. Otherwise...

From a couple sources I read, It comes from banca rotta, Italian for broken bench. No way of knowing what Alex actually said.

The only one I missed was the play and can't say I've ever heard of Marat/Sade.
Neither have the 11% who guessed Hitler ;)
I did, in fact, consider Hitler as well.
As did I.
