Clammed on hockey, and said "testimony" only to realize a moment too late what the correct answer was. Baden-Baden was an "oh, of course" moment.
Had spear.

As for Friday's FJ, I said the full name, but if I was writing it down I would have just said "Mormon Church."

I gave myself credit for this, on the assumption that it would be at worst BMS'd and I would have then said wife.

Instaget. Also precalled during the music that someone would guess Berlin for the other one. They didn’t. (Yes, I know that’s totally the wrong place for Berlin but if you’re not that good at German geography it’s not a horrible guess.). I said Berlin, but that was playing off the Clue of the Day, ...

Judges: Fines instead of bail for the 8th Amendment clue? They were obviously going for bail because of the mention of getting out of jail, but the amendment does prohibit excessive fines as well.

I thought IPhone was the very obvious answer, and the easiest FJ so far this week. I do wonder if we benefit from some recent 10th anniversary publicity that might not have been around when this was filmed.
Yeah, with the hubbub over the X and the 10th anniversary, this was an instaguess for me.

Isn't the show's website known to spoil results "indirectly" (they don't announce the winner but if you add 1 + 1 you know the results).
I remember one tournament where the results for quarterfinal games marked who would get wild card berths before the week was completed.
