Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

After lucking into a forfeit win on day 1 with only 3 right, of course I drop the 0 on their only wrong answer on day 2 for a 9(6)-9(5) tie. My DE goes from --- to 0.000 as the clock strikes midnight.

Also, at some point between LL73 and last night, I forgot how to spell "Roth(s)child".

Re: Season 1 info

Does anyone know if I could find out when J! started airing on WHIO? I want to know whether or not I was actually watching Jerry Frankel's original run from my crib when I was approximately two weeks old. I don't know if this search will show up for you the same way it does for me, but per newspape...

Re: Season 1 info

Did you find that out by looking at the Archive, and noticing that the Season 2 premiere was #261?

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6264 Moving along the first India Cooper tape, we have Jan. 9, 1992, Liz MacGillicuddy-Lucas vs. Doug Frost vs. Peter Wadhams. I'm mentioned how much I like the straightforwardness of the clues in games of this era, but I'm also a fan of the categorizati...

LL81: LearnedLeague

https://i.imgur.com/cnbC51u.png The matchups are up for the new season which starts Wednesday, May 22. More and more I miss the ability to search for players by state. It does look like one of the South Dakotans who took a season or 2 off is back. My goal this season is, as always, to win the South...

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor (or Master Archie)

Parents: Duke & Duchess of Sussex (Prince Harry & Meghan Markle)
Harrison (Harry's son) as a middle name is a cute touch.
Who do they think they are, Icelanders??

I'm not sure where "secrecy" fits in, but I guessed "security blanket" with little confidence.

9 times out of 10 I call her Mavis Bacon. I wonder what I'd have done here. Clammed up, I bet.

Re: Tuesday, May 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So much for no shout-outs as Tara included a greeting to her students by naming the school where she teaches. Are we certain this was taped after the rule was supposedly enforced? And we probably don't really know if TPTB give the contestants in this tournament the same spiel. But yeah, a little su...

Question about game scheduling

So Friday's show included a category called SCI-FI STUFF, which Alex introduced by saying "In honor of tomorrow's date, 'May the 4th be with you'..."). And In the past, especially on holidays, they've had categories that tied in to the specific air date. Bob Harris's Halloween game with the movie mo...

Nominated for an Oscar in 1970, this actor is reprising a role in a 2019 film that he first performed in a 1994 film of the same name If the J! writers were to make it a FJ! clue then they would probably do it with the math variety they like to use of 2019 and 25 years after.

Re: How long were the "broadcast runs" for Julia Collins, David Madden, et al?

On the other side of the coin, Ken Jennings played his first 38 games uninterrupted, a record that still stands. The second half of his run was then interrupted 4 times: for the ToC, a Kids Week, whatever it was they ran on Election Day I don't remember, and the College Championship. The two halves ...

Re: How long were the "broadcast runs" for Julia Collins, David Madden, et al?

Arthur Chu's run was split up into three chunks by four weeks of tourneys--two weeks of Battle of the Decades, and two weeks of College Championship--including three weeks right near the beginning between day 4 and day 5. (I seem to recall that the official Jeopardy YouTube spoiled his second week o...

Fortunately it was only 4 or 5 clues, but I do so hate doing anything twice. Are you, um... a married man, Myron? Twice married, so I guess that's the exception that proves the rule! :lol: All those years you were playing the long game for the setup to this punchline. Totally worth it and I admire ...
