Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Anyone else think that--assuming as executive producer he has significant say in who the next host will be--Mike Richards might pull a Dick Cheney and choose Mike Richards? As for Ms. Couric's remarks (which I have only seen referenced in the usual alarmist conservative news headlines), some enormou...

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ken mispronounced Bemidji. The first syllable has a schwa. He pronounced it with an eh as in egg. Maybe I'm nitpicking, but we were used to Alex's very careful pronunciation for 36 and 1/2 years. Alex wasn't exactly a paragon of pronunciation. The first thing to spring to mind is his turning Z's in...

Re: Thursday, January 7, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If I had a nickel for every time I've ridden in a car with my dad or grandfather at the helm and asking, "How many do you think are dead there?" when passing the slew of visible tombstones... It was always good for a family chuckle, "All of them!" With my dad--assassinated by pancreatic cancer in 2...

Re: Monday, January 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My FJ precalls were Pilgrim's Progress (can't name a single character) and Paradise Lost (Satan and a bunch of other fallen angels with funnier names). Should have listed Don Quixote * but doubt I'd have gotten FJ even then. Of those three works I've read only sections of the Milton. When the clue a...

I loved the bit at the end of Round 1 where Alex started getting censored before getting escorted away from that jet. :) Me too. Someone must have saved that and can upload the clip so we can all watch it again. Please oh please? PS to the penguin, thanks for creating the videos, two of which I wat...

Probably I ought to know this, but how many unaired new Alex episodes remain to air in early 2021: is it 10 or just 5?

Lefty guitarist from Seattle is a TS at $200? Where's my machine gun?
NB: Neither musician in the clue plays on this version, which features Buddy Miles on drums and Billy Cox on bass.

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

Before you complain about your moneying, realize that you finished ahead of me and I had 10/12 :oops: I got 10/12 and only hit the 60th percentile, so I contend my moneying was the worst. Not even close. I got 10/12 and finished in the 35th percentile, surrounded by folks with 4-7 right. Kind of a ...

In the "neg" category - financial, first name Charles? Yup, I took the bait and went with Schwab. If I'd concentrated on the "bull" part, and was given time, I maybe could have fixed my thinking. The clue mentioned "guys named Charles and Edmund," which I assumed meant the firm had two last names. ...

Hit and miss in the AMA category. I clammed on Eilish since I wasn't sure if she'd had another hit yet, and on Jonas Brothers because I know there are only three of them yet there were five people in the footage. Pretty sure there's a fourth JoBro--he was known as "the bonus Jonas"--but I'm not loo...

Nothing against Burton, I just don’t get the hype. But my exposure to him is limited to Roots. People's exhibit A for the defense is the petition for Burton with many signatures.

I completely sympathize with Dan not quite getting there either. Dan lost $1000 because of it and all I lost was a little pride and short streak. I sympathize too, though this time my brain managed to cough up Javert. But the miss didn't cost Dan: he bet 0, so Holly's get and big wager left him in ...

My first, second, and third thoughts were garden party, but it just seemed too banal for a book title and I switched to even more boring "dinner". Minor quibble (aka "Someone was wrong on the internet!"): "The Garden Party" is a short story, not a book. It also happens to be the first story include...

Such a great clip. Back it up to 2:10 or so and watch the whole bit.
