For a sentence spoken without expression, I said Sotto voce. Judges?
I'd say no. Sotto voce often is with spoken expression.

I still have a shot to make my goal of 5 wins, but's it's looking less and less likely.

If there's one thing I hate more than Oscar categories, it's wordplay categories. Not sure I've even ever heard of Spotlight.

I've never been more curious to see how a particular FJ clue polls. I think I'd only get it if you gave me a dozen guesses...
Yeah, about a dozen guesses and 10 minutes. Best I could come up with was Sousa.

I had the 14th amendment ending slavery. Serious trivia fail. I did too. I also had the 20th repealing prohibition, so my mistakes canceled out. I wish I could be this lucky when I need it. For the last number I have always been able to remember it in matching it to usual legal drinking age. Good w...

The FIDE has been mentioned on this board a few times, but I think it's been about 3 years since the last mention.

Lot of Canadian material today. I'm not liking this team format. I'd rather be watching Ken and Brad go at it for the full game. This calling in of the B Squad and the C Squad is is is is just not working. Matt has not gotten any more civil with practice. He's still a blowhard who interrupts Alex. ...

There's a Brown University?! I just always find "who graduated from what college" such a pointless subset of trivia. It has literally zero bearing on anything.
Me, too. How about you, Andy...?

Ouch on that second DD in the second round. I knew that one cold (I have listened to that soundtrack more times than I can count) but I can see it being impenetrable if you weren't familiar. I had no idea, but I still am not sure why he didn't bet just $5 on that one. FJ took me about 20 seconds to...

I will miss Harp (I've been watching him since he was a rookie), but there's no way the Nats should have spent that much. Yeah, the Phillies threw him stupid money alright.

Re: Wednesday, February 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I am shocked that Titty-N(hee hee hee) needs to be explained on a Jeopardy board. Average people I could understand. I don't know if I've ever heard a trivia friend pronounce the name correctly. Or perhaps the trivia crowd I frequent is just really weird. To be fair, that was from a clip in 1977, w...

Not a prayer on FJ. I said Absalom, Absalom, which doesn't even fit the category.

I had to look this up since I've never heard it the way Ken pronounced it. His real first name was Tiziano, pronounced Tit-zha-no, so you could make an argument for Ken's pronunciation. There was a link to Ken's twitter feed on FB. On there he stated that he did it that way, just like E. Buzz Mille...

Ken can do no wrong! (except mispronounce Titian) Yeah, that was odd. Did anyone else think the "read one mind" answer was weird? I've never heard that expression. Read one's mind, sure. The clue was: "To ascertain one person's thoughts, as by telepathy" Seemed to me there was an edit there, but it...

You want to talk luck? What about Ken's first game? There was a good chance we would have never heard of him.
Luck for J!, too. If not for Ken, I suspect that most of these big tournies never would have happened.

Successful first week for me. I tied yesterday, so 2-1-0 for the week.
I got my first non-loss yesterday with, like you, a 4(4)-4(4) tie. We also both got the same questions correct. :)
