I didn't recognize Reese Witherspoon. She looks suspiciously younger.
Her whole schtick is "looking suspiciously younger", so I can't see how you didn't recognize her.

Re: Term for getting all clues in a horizontal row?

The problem, of course, is that unless you're scoring yourself, it's not likely you're going to notice. And unless you're talking bottom row (or maybe 2nd to bottom) I wouldn't call it an impressive feat. My 1/50 of a dollar. The point is, unless you're scoring yourself, you're also less likely to ...

Rob, any significance to the ear tug that you would be willing to share? It looked very much like something besides, "hmm, my ear itches". From previous Rob posts: I had three very enthusiastic cheerleaders. (my wife, her mom and aunt) + shameless flirtation with a hottie in the audience!   :oops: ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

How was I supposed to know that Table Tennis for $200 was referring to China and not any other big country? Or maybe a small country? I saw no TOM at all in that clue. The US's table tennis diplomacy with China was a minor plot point in Forrest Gump . Admittedly it was a bit on the tough side for $...

Coryat: $18,600 DDs: 2/3 FJ!: :( Even though it was 3 years later, seeing Warren in the clue led me down the garden path towards JFK/Warren Commission, so I put down Jack Ruby. I did for the longest time too, but rereading the clue (and figuring it wouldn't take 3-4 years) got me to Miranda in a "l...

Thought there might have been outcry to the Germany clue where Kate was credited with West Germany after she corrected herself from East after Alex said no (and, when asked to repeat, said "West" as if East never happened.) Personally I don't have nearly as much problem with that as I do with them c...

Re: Term for getting all clues in a horizontal row?

(Thanks to heppm01, btw, for giving this thread the attention it deserves) Unless they do it one right after the other, six clues in a row, left to right, I don't feel like it merits specific terminology. Same way you shouldn't get applause unless you sweep a full category 1-2-3-4-5. agreed, but I l...

Mainly I couldn't resist it, but in the SJ round I like the "get 'em out of the way" approach. Better to leave SJ clues unseen if it means a better chance of getting through the DJ board, amiright? That’s not a bad way of thinking actually! Man there is so much luck in this game... Yeah I’m told so...

Yeah, yeah, I know. I'm four months late to the party on this one. Did anyone see a way to eliminate F.W. de Klerk on this FJ!? He was president when apartheid was dismantled, and the quote referenced in the clue seems like a statement that would be much more impactful coming from a white politicia...

I'm guessing Rob was saying hello to Carol Burnett's grandmother? :lol: (Surprised Alex didn't know the reference) (I had the idea it'd be a cute thing to do in player intros, but if I did it now, it'd just seem like I was copying Rob.) The players got the Phantom category out of the way first and R...

Frank gave Exhibit A in why you should never guess on Jeopardy!

(I'm almost certain, though, that when I tape I...

Perhaps it’s just me but I didn’t really see the Jay Leno category as being about cars. I use the j-scorer site to track my Coryat and part of the site lets you enter the topic of the category so you can track your performance in various topics like in LL. I didn’t code that as “cars” though as I fe...
