A very good week for me with a few good decisions. Last book and every Spring cemented my choice, mainland Asia pointed me to Turkey and wisdom caused me to think of Proverbs.

Monday, MONDAY, MoNdAy!

So that means -Tuesday- we can start commiserating over how clever/evil the previous day's questions were. :lol:
The last few seasons, MD1 has kicked my derrière. Dunno if this is a conscious move by TAI or just the statistics of small numbers.

Amanda rebounded from the last game (or her opponents weren’t as fast on the buzzer) and got the lock. Good for her since she didn’t get a gimme of a FJ

What was the point of the "less than 100 years" part? Pretty much every national capital in that part of the world would satisfy that condition.

I can only imagine how the J! FB page is blowing up over this decision, but —yup— it’s a title. I was pretty sure what his last book was, and the Spring hint helped cinch it.

Re: Tuesday, May 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A pretty well-played game only marred by some lousy FJ wagers. I got to FJ after first considering Psalms but deciding that wisdom was hinting at Proverbs. Was pleasantly surprised at the reveal since this was a weak category for me.

I will proudly say that I sent a screen grab of the Talking Heads clue to Chris Frantz, who put it on his Facebook timeline.
And that was shared to a Brian Eno FB group I’m a member of along with the tag “and it anagrams to”

I was thinking of you during this FJ. Oy, just oy. My wife looks at me and and asks “they get on... and not you?” I have no answers.

What a tale of two halves! I almost picked up enough LT for a fourth podium win but fell just short. I’m sorry to see Emily go as she was a fun champion to watch. Instaget FJ. The clue really gave you all the pieces to put together.

Re: Monday, May 3, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was the exceptionally rare case when my FJ precall hit. I most likely woke my wife up with my loud guffaw upon the reveal. A $24k combined Coryat sounds very low. Is this a case for a Fourth podium poll, Opus?

Re: Friday, April 30, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ had me going down a dead end. I saw the name Ix and immediately thought of Frank Herberts Dune series in which Ix is a planet. It wasn’t until halfway through Think music that I saw that it was a country, at which point I realized that I had no clue and went with Lewis and Narnia. Sad to say, but...

Why was Hari competing in regular J! Rather than the College Tournament? I get that you aren’t limited as you are in the tournament, but the inadvisability of a college sophomore going against two older contestants was on display tonight. Easy FJ even for this non-movie buff. But, oy!, that wager...

As a semi-regular visitor to Florida for the past 30-odd years, I knew full well that it qualifies as subtropical. Instaget FJ. Nice game by Dana. We’ll have to see how much staying power she has as champ.

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

I’ve been doing well in the puzzle ML. I hadn’t dropped a single UfPA through the first 4 days, then came crashing back to earth with a 6(5)-7(4) loss. I’ve been getting about half the puzzles but they don’t always help me: I got SPEAK from the shhh one and all 5 clues but couldn’t pull the 1996 hit...

Kelly lucked out here. He shouldn't have bet that dollar, leaving Dan a clear path to victory with no tiebreaker necessary. $1 is a rational wager here. He is about 55% to win outright (leaders are favorites to get FJ correct). Of the four 1st/2nd combinations R=right W=wrong If leader bets $1 RR w...
