Re: Monday, June 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Also didn't recognize anything in the "Good" category. Not even the voice of Judy Hopps. Doesn't look like she's been in anything else particularly notable, either. If TPH thinks an actor isn't notable, that's a sign that they're notable: Ginnifer Goodwin was one of the wives on "Big Love," and was...

NHO either of those mounts in $600, "ergonomic" recliner, or Aly Raisman. Also didn't recognize anything in the "Good" category. Not even the voice of Judy Hopps. Doesn't look like she's been in anything else particularly notable, either. I've never heard of those red-white-and-blue popsicles being ...

Re: FJs for the 6/10/19 week

:( :( :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :(
:( :mrgreen: :(

No guess on the missed ones.

NBA didn't affect me, but on Thursday, WNEM announced a "Better Deals" promo show. It only affected Wheel, but their schedule and DirecTV's both said it was also blocking J!, thus causing the DVR not to pick it up.

Perhaps it's the part of me that's still annoyed about missing this FJ a couple of years ago
I still see no way to figure that one out.

Re: Friday, June 14, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Poll request for "George" magazine. Seems like a very obscure pick since it was only around for 6 years and I don't see any popcultural impact it could've made. Surprisingly, Tamagotchi was my only get in 1990s. Another bad performance in an animal category, as i got only Timon. The horse clue in Ci...

I don't understand that "flimflam game" clue at all. I can't think of any terms for revered people that have "con" in them,
I con.
Then what does the other half have to do with "flimflam game"? Conning isn't a "game".

My DirecTV schedule and WNEM's both said that both J! and Wheel were blocked out for a home shopping special they do quarterly called "Better Deals", but apparently only Wheel actually was.

Ran the Restaurants and surprisingly, Elements and Authors' Rhyme Time. I don't understand that "flimflam game" clue at all. I can't think of any terms for revered people that have "con" in them, nor do I see how "con" has to do with games. "It's the Mexican name for the Rio Grande." Wait, isn't "Ri...

How the eff did I go 0/5 in an animal category? Especially when Josh Hill was the $200 response?

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

0/5 in Rules, War Literature, Our Planet, Presidential, and the entire right half of the DJ! board. I usually do well in animal categories, but the "Our Planet" one ate my lunch today. The clues just somehow didn't click. What was the TOM for Civil War in War for $200? The US was in a lot of wars an...

Re: Friday, June 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was embarrassed to miss this FJ. I spent way too much time thinking "Victoria is in the clue so it can't be Victoria, can it?" This made me curious if the correct answer to Final Jeopardy has ever been contained within the clue (not counting trivial cases such as when the answer is a letter of th...

Re: Tuesday, June 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rabindranath is a very obviously Indian name, The hell it is. Recognizing any nouns associated with India never goes well. Neither does hinging a clue entirely on "it sounds like it should be from X". I thought "Javier Bardem" sounded Portuguese but I was wrong on that count. It's literally 100% su...

I knew obispo = bishop somehow. But I somehow went at least 10 years without ever learning the Spanish word for "both". How do I speak that much Spanish and never learn or use the word for "both"?

Re: Tuesday, June 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ran the Place category in J! Not the tiniest bit of recognition in that Movies category. Also 0/5 in Birthplace. "Javier Bardem" sounded Brazilian and not Spanish to me. Not like I know who that is, anyway. No guess on FJ! I didn't see a single TOM in this anywhere. I don't see how Taj Mahal = teard...

I learned the third eyelid thing three ways: 1.) seeing them on my cat, 2.) reading about their functionality on camels in an article in Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, and 3.) hearing it on an episode of The Angry Beavers of all things.

TPH Coryat funtime

After testing this on a few previous episodes, I thought I would spend the next week or two tracking my Coryats again to see any patterns. Diagonal lines mean I got the clue right. Horizontal lines mean that i did not. Double-boxed clues are Daily Doubles. The numbers in the bottom right are the ord...
