Re: FJs for the 10/7/19 week

Was there a particular reason for the last question, about checking the lineup for the week? Just a curiosity that occurred to me as I wondered what people do for day-by-day or skipping ahead. Sometimes I see predictions about champs and their chances for longer runs making me suspect it's not only...

Doggies! https://i.ibb.co/Pc3TCGg/erindoggies.jpg Erin did just enough (7800+4000 at DD3 against Ed's 24600) to prevent the lock through the 8 clues remaining on the board. Alex made sure Erin knew she had a chance, "Close, but not a runaway." Erin went big to attempt to steal the game and not worry...

Re: "A Big Statistic" for $400 poll (10/14/19 spoiler)

Clam for me. It was a perfect storm of no idea what to guess as I've never seen the Clooney movie or Deadliest Catch . Or any form of Baywatch . Or been swimming or fishing since the Reagan administration. This clue seems like one that will have way more negs/clams than gets and I think it's great t...

Re: Fun with GSN's "Common Knowledge"

Joey was close to being Richard Dawson as after the right answer he asked, "How does that work? Show me." The moment was funny as is and then the lady fanned herself and simulated smoking a cigarette for more laughs and applause.

Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

... Erin crushed it on the music clues. IMHO, that's what won her the game. 3/5 and +$3200 on the music clues taken away leaves Erin with 9200 and still in position to take the game in the FJ! round with Anthony's miss. Erin won for overall better buzzer work while 6W and 2nd place after the DJ! ro...

Re: Monday, October 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

With the mention of the Contestant Zone on the weekly poll there is another thing that comes up sometimes. Erin's picture shows a different outfit than what she had on to play today. My guess is the collar had a strobing effect through the camera lens and she had to change into what looked like a dr...

Yeah, by now I have to accept that J! players may not know the guy who sang "Lost In Love" and "All Out Of Love" while it still stings my '80s music heart. But not knowing the Chicago poet? That should never be a stumper. Clue selection was not optimal with DD3 hiding and finally Susan found it with...

Kevin (3x $44,001) found DD3 at clue 30 with the scores: Susan: 18800 Kevin: 8400 Omid: 2600 The wager turned out not to matter since the FJ! clue was a triple solve. 2900? Booo! I would like...

On 'opposable thumb', IIRC the closed captioning said 'disposable thumb' and I thought they were going to take her money away. My CC (I guess they are all the same?) also said "disposable", but I clearly heard "opposable" (maybe she said "an opposable"). I had paused the DVR while twelvefootgirl fi...
