I considered Whitman, but then "The Road Not Taken"/Frost clicked.

No guess (was trying to thing of a real-world group, and probably wouldn't have guessed Munchkins spotted Wizard of Oz); Madonna (low confidence)

If I've eaten at a Howard Johnson's, I have no memory of it.

I can't say I really had an approach Friday. Bern popped into my head immediately, and from there it was just a matter of checking if it worked (add LI to make Berlin, Switzerland and Germany share a border, done).

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (West Palm Beach), March 27, 2019

42-45 (I'll say 44) right. The questionable ones are Ulysses Grant: The mention of Hamilton threw me so bad I couldn't make heads or tails of the clue. I said the correct answer just before time ran out, but wouldn't have had time to even type "Grant" in the box. Chrissy Teigen: I spelled it Teigan....

David Mamet (desperation guess); no guess Wednesday/Friday.

Have neither read nor seen The Natural.
Albany first.
Not only was Friday a no-guess, I still had no clue after some research trying to figure it out.

Re: Friday, March 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've never been more curious to see how a particular FJ clue polls. I think I'd only get it if you gave me a dozen guesses... After playing off Clue of the Day and deciding I had no answer, I looked at a list of musical instruments trying to figure this one out. Still couldn't get it. Never would h...

Would have had Sun Tzu. I didn't make the (season) 35 connection, but a different one: the minimum age to be President.

Speedy, Maine, and Punic Wars, and losing a coin flip and saying harp instead of lyre. $2200, so I couldn't catch up.

On Wheel of Fortune or The Price Is Right , sometimes it looks like the wheel is going to stop on the perfect space, but it has just enough spin left to get over one more peg.
