Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Yesterday afternoon I received an audition invitation via Zoom for this week! It's my first audition EVER after nearly 18 years of trying. Congrats, Kerry! Best of luck. You’ve already appeared on WWTBAM so presumably you have some idea of what to expect. I’ll repeat the advice given to me: be your...

Makes me even more peeved that my audition for this show was cut short by COVID restrictions.

So now we have established that Subarus can go in reverse. Pretty easy FJ but I was waiting for someone to take the Yellow Journalism negbait. Fortunately for Carmela, she had a runaway.

The Los Angeles Dodgers won Game 6 of the World Series 3-1 to clinch the MLB title, 4 games to 2. This is the franchise's first title in 32 years, having last won in 1988.
Which is the birth year of Clayton Kershaw, the pitcher who just cemented his first round ballot to Cooperstown.

Re: Tuesday, October 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For whatever reason, I liked the DJ board better than J! And I thought that this was one of the better FJs we’ve seen this season. I was another who got to Constitution State as the only nickname with a document in it, then spent the rest of Think Music ticking off the other nicknames just to be sure.

$10,200 by my counting so no runaway and an FJ loss. My superior wagering (and all those DD gets) might be enough for a win though.

Re: Thursday, October 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I honk that was a terrible FJ clue. To me, a Type A personality is driven and perfectioniatic, neither of which is suggested to me by Cannonball. I said thrill-seeker with little confodence. And, yes, precision and accuracy are distinct things, at least in the context of measurement. Anyone know if ...

I’m a bit surprised that no one has mentioned cochineal as a possible wrong answer to FJ given its importance to dyeing in Oaxaca.

I just saw Mexico + insect and locked in on Monarch Butterfly. Lucky for you then, considering there's this rather well-known Mexican folk song called "La Cucaracha" (whose title translates to "The Cockroach")... The problem with that is that it’s pretty well known that La Cucaracha was Mexican sla...

I was helped immeasurably on the Branch Rickey question by having recently watched “42”. I hadn’t realized at the time how close Harrison Ford got to his appearance.

Photo was taken at "The Wave", a famous rock formation in Northern AZ. Not easy to get a permit to - half by advance reservation, half by daily lottery. Round trip hike is about 6.2 miles, and requires the ability to follow a route marked by cairns over slick rock. Brutally hot in the summer time, ...

One of the great trivia facts of this age just got a little closer to being out-of-date. Leon Tyler, grandson of president John Tyler, passed away September 26 at the age of 95. John Tyler still has one living grandson, Harrison Tyler. (For anyone not familiar with this piece of trivia, these are p...
