Re: Friday, November 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was tough to watch. Poor kid. Easy FJ again. I don’t think “pepper shaker” should’ve been accepted since it doesn’t grind.

Re: Wednesday, October 31, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The original version is so much better! Instaget FJ. The beginning of DJ was rough but good game to see. Ironic that the guy who just got back from Uganda didn’t ring in for Kampala. It’s nice that Swapme’s son got to enjoy the podium!

I’ve never heard of zymase & I must admit I don’t recall the clue on the show. I did go 60/60 in J6 this week.

Re: Friday, October 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I’m going to Norway next summer so it was nice to see that category tonight. I thought Tori was a strong player as well as Chris and I preferred both to Dhruv. Well-played game with a weak ending. I thought of the Shroud of Turin right away but then I realized the clue said 336 (!) lbs. I’m pretty s...

I was rooting for Patrick because Irish-American from the Bronx AND he likes SC’s Capitol the most! But it was a much better game than last night’s. I had to read Grendel in college. It was awful.

Well that was a shitshow. Easy FJ. Singapore for Java?? On to watch Survivor. And Leningrad wasn’t a seige city; that was Stalingrad, much to the south.

Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

I root for those who don’t act like idiots. I root against most who start their sentences with “so...” if someone has an interesting story, I root for them.

Easy match today. I was rooting for the middle player but the 3rd DD did her in. Renaissance faires are still a thing?

TPH: Gwen Stefani divorced her husband around then.

I’ve been around the CR three or four times. I had an excellent steak there too! I probably wouldn’t have known about it if I hadn’t gone to BA.

Re: Thursday, October 4, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another easy FJ. Apparently a lot of EVOO is not all that pure & a few years ago several people died because it was adulterated with toxic stuff. I was glad to see a new champ. Lawrence O’Donnell looks younger than her did 20 years ago! He must have a fantastic surgeon!

Re: Wednesday, October 3, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I’ve had stroopwafels over in the Netherlands but I just assumed the ones sold here were crap. The Dutch love their afternoon pancakes! Easy FJ for me as Geneva is the only major Swiss city I missed seeing but I did research it before a trip there. It was nice to see Maggie get back in black. Those ...

Re: Tuesday, October 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Canucks don’t have their own version of J! to appear on? I didn’t see “Hyphenates” when watching because I fast forwarded since I had to make it to pub trivia on time (spoiler alert:we won again!) so that might have helped me get Aflac. I was surprised at some of the misses already mentioned plus th...

Re: FJs for the 9/24/18 week

I had just finished “Y Is For Yesterday” the night before so that was easy. I’ve read the entire series. Patricia Cornwell’s first 3 Scarpetta mysteries were pretty good but then she went downhill. I didn’t want Alex’s accent on The Godfather clue and I had just watched I & II a couple of weeks ago ...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

I read O Pioneers! & I think I own My Antonia. I’ve heard of Death Comes For the Archbishop but it took me some time to get there. Death in Venice & Agee’s book helped. I’ve never heard of the last one. Is it any good? I knew most of the others except for the YouTube guys. I read about them briefly.

AC, I saw the episode where you’re the plus one. I went from my DVR not recording any episodes to getting 2 different episodes per day.

I was sure it was anisette. I don’t enjoy bitter liqueurs. I did get the other 5 correct but my opponent got all 6!

Instaget FJ. I didn’t pay close attention to the entire game as I’m a Florence refugee but I’ll probably rewatch it next week.

I went 6 for 6! I wouldn’t have known Chopin except for a trip to Poland 🇵🇱 in July. He’s a huge hero there. I thought Talla was correct except I couldn’t think of a river in MS but I gambled.

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

3 weeks after 9/11, I was in Scotland and hiked up Ben Lomond. It’s quite misty up there. I guessed David Robinson instead of Nowitzki. I’ve heard of the latter but I thought he’d been on a few teams.
