Re: Friday, March 1, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Sara lucks out again with other contestants' last second DD misses, plus a bad bet by Craig. I felt bad for him on the EU DD miss, since France does have territories off Canada ( St Pierre & Miquelon), but Wikipedia tells me they are further than 1300 miles away. I wonder if he was going for them or...

Re: Tuesday, February 26, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Great job by Colby, a well deserving win after dominating the majority of the two matches. The haters will probably jump on the fact he called himself a great teacher and great coach. I like Colby, but the modest person would say they "try" to be a great teacher and coach. If I ever got on the show...

Re: Monday, February 25, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I agree the DJ round seemed easier than it should have, although I think I blanked on all the 90's music clues.

On FJ, I was pretty sure they were looking for the Showboat writer, but couldn't think at all of her name. I also thought the timeframe seemed a little too late.

Re: FJs for the 2/18/13 week

Knew they were looking for the Rio statue, just didn't come up with the official name before the clock ran out. Similarly, just couldn't pull up Hillenbrand in time.

Re: Friday, February 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought it was sort of a weak first round with some surprising triple stumpers, but Keith was certainly impressive in DJ, even aside from the big DD bet.

FJ an instaget for me as soon as I saw "shadow".

My FJ answer was the collectivization of agriculture. I wonder if that would have been accepted?

Re: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For some reason, I intrepreted "German canal" to be asking for the German word for canal, which is kanal. Which I knew couldn't be what they were looking for, so I was lost.

I thought it was hard to come up with an easier FJ clue in that category, especially given the publicity around Brubeck's death recently

Re: Tuesday, February 19, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I joined dmleach in mistaking Westminster Abbey for St. Paul's. I did exactly the same thing. I must have thought, "There's basically only one super-famous church in London." Not really true. That Shakespeare cat was rough on this English major, but at least from the couch I clammed the ones I didn...

Re: Monday, February 18, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Vilnius was my guess too. Don't think I would have ever come up with Yerevan, despite having seen it on a map last week.

A little surprised that Working was a TS, and a $2000 clue.

Sorta odd that my first five for five week would be during TOC, but I'll take it.

Re: Friday, February 15, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Lizzie Borden immediately occurred to me when I saw Massachusetts in the clue; reading the rest of it led me to Dickinson.

Glad to see others had the same reaction I did to the composers category. The first question was the only one I missed, and I thought Prokofiev was the easiest answer.

Re: Friday, February 15, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I am no master of betting strategy, but I thought the second place FJ bet was odd. If she's wrong, I'd think $8600 too low to have a chance at the semis. If she's right, $11,000 might still be marginal. I would have gone all in to increase the odds of making it.

Re: Thursday, February 14, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Instaget FJ for me, but I've been there any number of times. The little brownstone on the end might have been a clue, otherwise I think it could be tough for some people. Surprised at the two misses on the DDs in DJ, especially Wallace, but I might be showing my age. An error in the first round in A...

Re: Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I had jalopy too. Much easier FJ than I would have guessed from the category. I suppose that constrained the wagering.
