Re: Friday, July 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I read P&P about a year ago so that helped. Roberts dressed nicely today. It seemed like a slow game today but I was stuck watching it on YouTube because the Olympics hogged that time period.

Re: Thursday, July 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have a young nephew with Crohn’s and it’s a miserable affliction. I also saw Alien early on so this was an instaget. Matt is impressive. In re Krishna v. Krishnan, was Matt wrong because neither fit the clue or was Krishna an alternative correct answer. Host didn’t explain it. I felt bad for the g...

Re: Wednesday, July 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Great job by the new champ! I also liked his tanker job description although I haven’t seen that movie. I’ll put it on my “to see” list. For me the FJ was a WECIB. I was fairly confident since I couldn’t think of any animated alternatives.

Competent but dull. I don’t think he wants the job anyway.

Was one of their #1 albums that crap that iTunes forced upon us? Achtung Baby was indeed their last great album. That was weird that Shah2 didn’t know Wailing Wall. Good win by Nikole. Gupta is okay but a bit monotonous.

I also rooted for Nanci. I assumed it was Peanuts who the Band made the song for but I didn’t get to Georgia, settling instead for Happy Days Are Here Again.

Re: Wednesday, June 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Easy FJ for me but I haven’t read Brave New World yet so maybe I’ll take it from the library next month. Enh. It's better than his The Doors of Perception , but I wouldn't make a point of reading it. I enjoyed the flyover states category. In September I’m going to Kansas for the first time. Then I’...

The government analyst makes a willy nilly wager for an even $15000 when 1005 less would have most likely won a Triple Stumper, plus beat a zero wager from either Courtney or S.A. with a singleton. Why am I not surprised? She wore her heart on her sleeve. She played a pretty good game until missing...

I had trouble understanding SA so I’m glad he’s not returning tomorrow. Easy FJ for me but I haven’t read Brave New World yet so maybe I’ll take it from the library next month. I took the kids to see Peter Rabbit 2 so I instantly got Jemima. I enjoyed the flyover states category. In September I’m go...

Funniest wrong answer was Mussolini having cancer led to the Three Tenors. Wrong country, wrong decade, wrong all over.

Easy FJ for me. I knew it already but Prussian blue was an LL answer a few weeks back. Since the war was with France, WECIB? Too bad we didn’t see the rest of the Aviation category.

The Chef category used Tom Colicchio again. Weird. Gupta was a bit dull. Easy FJ because of Austria. I was rooting for a repeat winner but c’est la vie. Chez Panisse was a big thing in the 80’s.

I’m watching it right now & Hammerhead would be so upset! The remaining contestant just insulted Brad Rutter with a backhanded compliment. Oh, the humanity!!!

Re: Capital One College Bowl

He adds nothing. It is interesting that the teams have one of two players who know nearly all the info while one just sits there. Maybe they need a format change.

Re: Of the remaining guest hosts, who do you think will be your 3 favorite?

I could only pick two. I detest the first 3 hosts and I haven’t seen LB since 1977. I used to see DF on CNBC and I’ve seen JB on Fox Baseball coverage. Yes, he can be EXTREMELY ANNOYING but he’s not some rancid msm hobbit.

Re: How Did Savannah Guthrie Do as Host?

I thought she did fine. It’s rather pointless to have a tryout if she’s not going to actually take the job. But after the dowdy prior host, SG was a spark of life!

Re: Friday, June 25, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ for this NYC native. I’m glad I’m out of the current mess up there but it used to be great. I was rooting for Ms. Porcaro but Mr. Weiss played a great endgame. The returning champ bombed out today. I thought SG did a very good hosting job & I wasn’t previously familiar with her work. I’v...
