did i really put e instead of f for the stadium? next time to avoid that mess i will just type out the clue with my choice...still no idea how i put the wrong letter
And this is part of why I hate requiring letters. There simply is no reason to need them.

I'd be surprised if that FJ polls under 90%.
That's probably a bit high. I'm sure there are some people who have never heard of Triscuits, I'd say 75-80%.

Tu - I knew it was about Pompeii and named the only Roman scholar type name I know, but said Pliny the Elder; NHO the younger.
Then why bother specifying the Elder?
Could be that's the only way he's ever heard it.

If Fred Brown doesn’t loose his head, the game perhaps has a different ending and Mike Jordan’s basket is just a footnote in his career.
Just how loose was it?

Alternate theory: Contestant starts doing their own independent research about their Final Jeopardy after they get home before taping (it wasn't a particularly hard clue to remember, and I'd bet that most contestants know the exact wording of the Final Jeopardy that defeated them), realized "hey, t...

No guess at all. I've heard of the movie, but had no clue it was associated with a streaming service.

Should have gotten Spanish Civil War, but the names didn't sound Spanish at all.
Didn't sound Spanish, but did sound Basque, so I went with the Spanish Civil War.
"Republicans" did it for me.

I was quite proud of myself for thinking of Ruthie Cohen. I also considered Peterman, Frank Costanza, and Susan, but just couldn't believe any of them could possibly have been in over 100 episodes.
For the record: 22, 29, and 29.

I'd be curious, of those who got the correct answer, how many started with Warren and how many with Warner.
Warren first, although I knew Warner as well.

but my understanding is that Ford really became the president and Nixon became an ex-president the moment Nixon's letter of resignation was accepted by Kissinger. The timing of the oath of office should be immaterial.
Correct.

The phobia category was too obscure for me. Nomophobia? Based on the Greek, I assumed it was fear of laws, but that didn't fit the clue. Why would it mean fear of being without a mobile phone?
I'm guessing from No mo(bile) phobia? Or using what's there: No mo(bile) pho(ne)bia?

Right? I knew it wasn't Marvel (they were Timely and Atlas), but Archie just never came to mind.

CARS is not my kind of category unless it’s about a TV show vehicle or I’d even settle for the Ric Ocasek group. Automobile history? No thank you.
I, on the other hand, was quite happy with that category. Instaget.
