I considered King, along with Patterson and Clancy (Crichton was dismissed because I was pretty sure he died before 2012), but stuck with Rowling, who was my first thought.

FJ! streak stands at 19, which I think is my longest ever.

The FJ! category narrowed the century and the country area in the clue seemed to pinpoint the guy to guess. Not that I would have considered Lewis Carroll anyway, but I play the J!6 before the game to get the categories ahead of time and he was in the RIPPER one. With nothing better to do I tried t...

I considered other American patriotic songs but decided without a TOM leading to them I should go for the anthem.
St. Peter; no way was I getting St. Andrew without mention of Scotland.

Hamilton as a desperation guess. The only other remotely plausible idea I had was Spring Awakening, which I knew to be older than that. Unfimiliar with Dear Evan Hansen.

Show aired on schedule Tuesday.

Alex announced the Teen Tournament starting on Wednesday.

Instaget FJ. I'm almost certain the Bloemfontein/flowers connection has come up in an FJ before, but I don't know when, or if I got it right then.
January 2017. I didn't know it then, and am actually kind of surprised I came up with the name this time.

No guess on MeatZZa.

I briefly considered connecting COSSAC and Russia, but couldn't make anything of it so swung back around to the correct answer.
