Re: Friday, May 9, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Didn't put anything down for FJ. Wonder if they purposely didn't put that in Ken's game... I wonder about that as well. If they had done it, I'll bet Facebook would have just exploded with allegations! Grrr.... the contestants are chosen without knowledge of what the questions are. The questions ar...

Re: Friday, May 9, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I am not quite sure what "instaget" means, but I had FJ correct by the time Alex was finished reading.

The contestants today missed a lot of fairly easy clues. I couldn't believe Montreal was a $2000 clue and still no one got it correct.

Re: Thursday, May 8, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ken probably Rogered the Monaco clue, but if he misses that and is ruled wrong getting cute on Charles Schulz, there actually would have been a little bit of drama in FJ. He still wins, of course, as even I got that FJ. I thought Jennings was acting too familiar tonight. That kind of behavior will ...

Re: Tuesday, May 6, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Yes, LISP was intended to stand for live-in sex partner. User dhkendall was the first to guess correctly. I thought that was more accurate than POSSLQ for "person of opposite sex sharing living quarters," since the latter can describe mere roommates; and the term LISP can also include same-sex relat...

Re: Wednesday, May 7, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ was an almost-instaget for me. My first thought was the Montgomery boycott, but I hesitated in saying it out loud (my answers are not final until I say them out loud, in the form of a question), until I counted the days back to December 4, 1955. Which is another way of saying I didn't recognize i...

Re: Tuesday, May 6, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alright, I can't let it go -- what does POSSLQ stand for? Mostly the last three letters, because I think i know the first three... :P It's a somewhat archaic (read: 1990s) acronym for Person of Opposite Sex Sharing Living Quarters. It was coined around 1980 by the census bureau. I once proposed to ...

MISSED QUESTION OPPORTUNITY

When the countries due south category, I precalled that Detroit, Michigan would be one of the clues in the category. Who knows what country is due south of Detroit?

Re: Monday, July 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Cool that there was a clue about Kate Middleton on the day the new king was born, and also an Alan Page question on the day the first woman on the Minnesota Supreme Court died. Well that last thing is not really a coincidence is it? Obviously it IS a coincidence. I think they both were, although th...

Holy Hannah, that new champ is just plain annoying.

I got Hoffman fairly quickly but couldn't remember Philip Seymour Hoffman. I wonder if they would have accepted Hoffman as a response or if I needed both first names?

Not correct. Monarchs can take any name they want, like popes.

And Dr. Brown is available at my regular grocery.

Re: Wednesday, June 12, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I knew at least one of the contestants would crash and burn on that FJ. Like College Bowl competitors, many J! contestants are only comfortable regurgitating information and are completely flatfooted when it comes to figuring something out.

Re: Tuesday, June 4, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Now what if they had made Oscar the subject of an FJ clue, even without the unfortunate "Big Bang" wording, would they feel the need to do something about it before the show airs? That I don't know. I don't really see what could be done about it. You can't skip a game without affecting continuity. ...

Re: Wednesday, June 5, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

What an awful game. Three contestants who don't even qualify as mediocre. The only reason there was even a winner is because, according to the rules, someone has to win. Kind of like when the Houston Astros play the KC Royals. The biggest surprise of the game is that the third contestant (whose bail...

Re: Monday, May 27, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It was a hard-fought game, that much is certain. At the half, I thought that Toby might win it, but the champ got his groove on in Double Jeopardy and I had a feeling at the end of the game that he was going to win again. I suppose Toby might have won had it not been for getting an article wrong, bu...

Re: Monday, May 27, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That is an unfair FJ and I would say also untrue. I checked the Radio Flyer web site and also Wikipedia, and neither make mention of the thing being named for Marconi & Lindbergh. Wikipedia says the company was renamed Radio Steel & Manufacturing in 1930 and the name Radio Flyer reflected founder An...
