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

"I used to teach that" needs to become TPH's new mantra. I'd imagine Steph will tell us she thought she was toast upon seeing the FJ clue, and then did some serious celebrating. Pretty odd that 2 of the 3 didn't know the actual name of the statue. Now that all the quarterfinal matches have aired, I ...

Not sure which is worse, the wagers or the majority of posts in this thread. :shock:

Re: Monday, February 4, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got it by noticing that they were asking for a composer who did his last something-or-other at the age of 35. Of course, that doesn't *guarantee* it's Mozart, but I knew Mozart died at 35, so I went for it. Didn't watch the game, but I'm betting on..... 1791, Mozart composes The Magic Flute. On D...

Re: Wednesday, January 30, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

$1,000-I honestly can't think of a way to reword this clue. But it mentioned neon, which i guess was supposed to lead lead you to Las Vegas and Nevada. I checked and the forum Mall is connected to Caesar's Palace, The mall was Neonopolis, which in my opinion does not automatically lead to Vegas. Lo...

Oh my, TPH is going to jump through the ceiling upon seeing a J round category.

Re: Tuesday, January 29, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The champ is definitely in the kitchen of all challengers during FJ wagering from now on. If you know what a anemometer is, FJ was cake. Otherwise it's a crapshoot. Doubt I'll be watching the next two weeks, just not the same. Nothing against the extremely bright kids who will be competing though. B...

Can't believe zinc and galvanization was a TS.

FJ offered no clues within the clue, just a piece of trivia you had to know.

Re: Monday, January 21, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

NBC is doing an hour long nightly news tonight, so if J! airs on NBC stations right after NBC Nightly News, it gets preempted. The president is getting inaugurated today, so if Jeopardy airs during that telecast, it gets preempted. Who would have thought? FWIW, NBC gives stations the option to air ...

Re: Thursday, January 17, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The two exchanging the lead throughout demonstrated excellent knowledge. Sadly, the champ threw away 40k on her unthinking DD wager late in the game.

Just happy POTUS was resting his voice today.

Re: Wednesday, January 16, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Yeah, second time this week we've been screwed out of Jeopardy due to Obama's blathering. I understand, just sucks. FJ was day one study material for any contestant, given the 2008, no excuse for any player to miss this one. Interested in going through the transcript to get some idea how the game pl...

Re: Tuesday, January 15, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

On the 2k Women in Sports am sure many upon seeing the map for half a second spouted Gertrude Ederle before the actual clue had started. Even though the NASA category was right in the champ's wheelhouse, Katie was ringing in on all 5 as well. And kudos to her for wagering big on the DD in an categor...

True, just as the player from last Thursday got 2k. But it's odd that in this situation TPTB award 2nd place money to a 3rd place finisher.

Re: Friday, January 11, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Interesting FJ, not impossible if you just run through the list, but a cool question. Champ had a great opportunity to lock up the game upon finding the last DD in the 2nd row, but made a useless wager. In FJ 3rd place threw away a win with her wager, but have pretty much given up on seeing logical ...

Re: Thursday, January 10, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For those of us who took the online test last night, how about the ironic timing of today's Millennium Series clue?

Like some others here, am in the DFW area so get to see the show at 11am. Will try to follow the unwritten rules regarding commenting on TPH's posts, no promises though!
