Re: Monday, January 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Blah blah blah journeys. If not for that last word, I'd have had no clue. +1. I usually dread Bible categories (particularly New Testament, as I still maintain being Jewish puts me at a disadvantage :p), but once the journey is there, you can retroactively fit the rest of the statement to the story.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Surprised that James missed that last FJ. I guess he was thinking that since Hamlet is the longest play, it must have the most supporting speeches. It looks like James was right that Horatio has the most speeches after Hamlet. I would have thought it was Claudius, myself...he has almost, but not qu...

Between the fogey spelling and the backlash they're getting all over Twitter about Palestine ... not one of the best episodes for the clue writers. :/

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I suppose it was obvious to me, a former Florida State student, and current resident of Tallahassee, but I was shocked when James, the sports-bettor he is, did not know our colors are Garnet and Gold. We may be looking at a different champion today if he did... Yeah, I'm what you would call "barely...

Ah well, they're once again reinforcing the stereotype of the Jeopardy superminds who don't know a jump shot from a slap shot. It was odd to me that she didn't know the proper term for offensive rebounds, but was able to name a 2nd tier famous player (someone I would think only an NBA fan would get...

I've heard the Belichick nickname as "Darth Hoodie", but that may be more due to my locality (right near Met Life Stadium, home of the Jets and Giants. :p)

Not that it affects the final scores any, but shouldn't Lisa get dinged for 's? It's two kinds of wrong (It's not part of the last name, and there isn't an apostrophe in the restaurant name anyway :p)

Re: Thursday, December 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Put me in the "Why the heck would I know that" category for FJ. I don't even know that that qualifies as a "non-traditional" Christmas song. It came out in the same two decade period as the bulk of the biggest Christmas songs, so why would I even think of it differently? I went with "We Wish You a M...

i got the previous 2 triple stumpers, but failed to get this one....don't really associate casablanca as being a war movie Exactly the same response from me. IMO that was a terrible FJ .. there was no help whatsoever. Alex assumes they've all seen it multiple times .. I request a poll asking that. ...

This whole "FJ disclaimer thing" is an extension of why I, as a Jew, complain about New Testament topics and questions.

Fun fact for those deep into statistics keeping: I believe Johnny is the first champ from Vermont in almost three years.

Pre called the band, wrote the band immediately in ink ... but picked both songs incorrectly (Help! and I'm So Tired). There's no other band in the 60s that I think that would fit the "overworked" description. The No. 1 songs The Rolling Stones had in the latter half of 1965 were "(I Can't Get No) ...

I just recognized the Canterbury Tales art style.

Re: Wednesday, March 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Looks like I'm going to be one of the rare people who missed this FJ. I wrote down "Psycho" first and then crossed it out and wrote "The Birds" thinking a movie with that name would be more likely to have a strings-only score. I didn't think about Psycho's signature "stabbing" music until it was to...
