Re: LL Season 91

It doesn't matter how many study guides and flash cards you have if you don't use them. Fortunately I would have missed the motorcycle question either way, against a 9(6), so it didn't impact my match much, but there's no reason I should have missed Glasgow, or been less than absolutely positive abo...

Re: Possible revisions to J! archive

got another revision that should be made: the 11 17 2006 episode has a scoring mistake in the j-archive. Martian's score for fj was reset to 100 since the contestants on celebrity J! shows are never disqualified from playing final Jeopardy. So what's the mistake? Spelling Martin Short's name as &qu...

This is the only other hit for "Lapine" in the Archive:
STEVES, STEVIES & STEPHENS $400:

James Lapine & this composer-lyricist shared a drama Pulitzer for "Sunday in the Park with George" in 1985

Did today's game (if you have seen it yet) remind you at all of your stint on the show?
It looks like I no longer have the record for highest Day 1 winning score, if it hadn't been broken previously.

Go east to a capital also on the Pacific means we want the west coast of S.A., which didn't occur to me until after I'd guessed Montevideo, and clicked the spoiler box.

Re: Tuesday, October 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Tough break on the Tin Drum. While the author is German, Jonathan may have known that the main character is Polish or that (I think) much of the movie takes place in Gdansk, which makes Polish a very plausible option. Which now makes me wonder, has anyone seen this film? I’m curious if German is in...

A week ago I was going to comment that last Tuesday's game was the first in the Archive without some sort of note on it, since March 4th. The Jonathan's game 5 happened, and that wasn't true any more.

Adele album: 30 - written when she was 30 although she is 33 now
If she'd had it ready for release by September 5, she could have titled it "33⅓".
Well played.

Then they could write one of those 33 1/3 books about it.

Just to be clear, I wasn't mocking the players' guesses of Gary, which I didn't even notice. I was mocking my own. Making fun of the players is always bad form.
