Re: Friday, June 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

UH OH, TALKIN’ MORE FOOTBALL goes back to this game: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=5898 when the failure went viral. Good thing it did not show up whenever Ryan returns. This time it went better with only one TS clue. Ali’s end game cost him everything. With one category to go it wen...

Regarding the january 11 1994 episode, i'm assuming the 4th category is "quotes" and not "quites"(I bring it up because it was misspelled.)
It must have been QUOTES, so I went ahead and made the correction.

I know I have not seen the movie. My solve was through famous moments as the Oscars:

Iain Armitage alert! The Young Sheldon clues bring hilarious posts from the small percentage of viewers extremely bugged by the actor. Alex making the U.S./Canada comparison for dollars. [Drink!] Ali was 3/3 on DDs for +$6300 yet still not enough for the lock to allow Deb to be in play for the FJ! r...

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern gave birth to a baby girl on Thursday, becoming the second elected world leader in modern times to have a child while in office. The only other elected head of government known to have given birth while in office was Pakistan’s Benazir Bhutto, who had a chil...

Uncle Alex’s opening: You would think that because a great deal of our material on Jeopardy! is about the United States that a player from Canada, a foreigner, Ali Hasan, would be at a disadvantage, but yesterday he was the only one who came up with a correct response in Final Jeopardy! Lindsay and ...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

How did you do on FJ? That is probably one the 1988 me gets but remembering him 30 years later was too much. I matched Steve and that's with the advantage of having seen the episode previously although years ago. I was also trying to determine for J! purposes if it meant House only or senators coun...

That was an easy World History category. Can't say I've heard of Robespierre, which was my only miss. Two people being surprised at the outcome of something in the 40s? Somehow my mind went instantly to "Dewey defeats Truman", so I put down Dewey without any doubts. My instinct-ometer was off as Ro...

I took the online test for the first time on March 7th. I got an email about 10:30 last night inviting me to the New York City audition on April 25th. Looking forward to the experience!

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alex’s opening mentioning “bright people” had me expecting a poor performance from the players while fortunately a 35,400 combined Coryat and 60/61 clues played was respectable. The triple miss of New Jersey cities was good for a laugh with Atlantic City, Newark, & Trenton named in FRANK SINATRA. Th...

Re: J! in the Media

This is a bit self-indulgent, but podcasts are part of "the media," so here it is. Local comedian Brent Weinbach, whom I became familiar with because of a video game music podcast, also does a podcast called "Pointed Questions" where he simply interviews people (alongside a "sidekick" who says a th...

It's broken up into four parts.
