Re: Monday, May 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Usually the Teachers Tournament is quite a bit easier so it was nice to see this game. Wasn’t American Dirt the center of a scandal for veracity? I’m planning (well, it’s on hold now!) to the Dakotas, Montana, and Idaho in late summer so I was able to get FJ. If not for the trip planning, I probably...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

Didn’t Jeopardy feature the American Gothic house on the show the night before this LL? I won my match by correctly analyzing my opponent’s relative weakness. At the last minute I changed the Rock Hudson value from 1 to 2 pts & I ended up winning by one!

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

That douchey writer might look down on Mick Mulvaney’s C Rundle performance but MM is usually midway in his rundle. And the writer has spent 15 of 17 seasons in C rundles so he shouldn’t look down on anyone. Anyway, new season begins today!

Re: Wednesday, April 29, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have to admit we all laughed when Alwin mistook Miss Jackson for Frankie’s half-sister. Now that I know that he’s blind in one eye, I feel terrible. And JJ did seem to have that ponytail. Easy FJ today for me since I read ATOTC last year. Great book.

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The best ATCs work at en route centers & approach controls. Tower flowers get all the glory for some reason. The last prez counts Sendak’s books as one of his faves? Dummy. I watched Ben Hur a couple of weeks ago on TCM. It’s 4 hours long. I did get this FJ but I wasn’t very confident so I was glad ...

Re: Monday, April 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was glad to see Sarah repeat, especially after her interview segment! I happened to read Grant and Lee by John Fuller a few weeks ago so that’s why I got this FJ. I love trying to say “zloty” correctly but I’m not sure I ever conquered it. This is the last week of new shows for awhile, right? But ...

Re: Trebek's replacement: short bench

I didn't spend the time cruising thru this entire thread to see if she'd been mentioned, but I nominate Brooke Burns from GSN. She's smart, experienced, deals with speedy question reading extremely well, doesn't seem uncomfortable with extremely brainy people at all, and speaks very clearly... And ...

Harry lives down the road from me but I never see him at Quigley’s Pub Trivia. I was rooting for him but he missed a pretty easy Olympics question.

Re: Thursday, April 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thank you! Several of those shopping ones, I was like "how TF was I supposed to know THAT?" They seemed to be aiming way too upmarket. I live in a state with only one Zara and none of Uniqlo or Topshop (although there is a Topshop just across the border in Windsor). All the ones I'm finding in most...

Ugh, I can’t stand Kimmel. And it’s not even regular people? I’ve set my DVR to record this but I’ll probably hate watch it.

I was disappointed that I was too late to register for 70’s music but yes, that was brutal! I did get BJ Cassidy’s hit, Chic, and Pop Muzik. That cuisine thing is even tougher!

Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Lately many of the games have been uninspiring. I’m glad to finally see a repeat winner but who would think Hearst was a Hungarian? When his descendant Patty Hearst was kidnapped much was made of her pedigree.

I got Pulitzer instantly but that quote is a whole lot of nothing.

My Dad worked in the NYC/NYS courts don’t I knew “affirm.” FJ was an instaget! Lucky for me that I knew The Sun Also Rises was an early work. Good game!

I’m pretty good with geography but I totally blew that one! I said Alberta & Manitoba! I’ve tried using that pneumonic device (BASM) but I forgot it when it counted. How many days in a row is it for one hit wonders?

Add me as one who was pretty sure Kimberly would win based on Friday’s wager. Vibram seemed a bit miffed after the missed DD. And if the contestants knew about Milles Barnes, they’d probably know about 70’s tv shows.

I was marked wrong for genghis khan. TMI! I was 4/6 but pulled out the win. I’m on a nice little winning streak but still mired in the middle of my rundown.

“Angie” Overrated? Not one bit! The Stones haven’t canceled their upcoming tour yet but it’s rumored that they will soon. It starts in San Diego in May 8th. I won yesterday because my opponent bet 3 that I’d get that wrong and I did the same for them. That made all the difference. I don’t have any i...
