Re: Friday, December 21, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My first thought for Final was the building with the steps that Rocky run ups in the namesake movie but the date was a little off and it just didn't seem to fit the clue very well. (That is the Philadelphia Museum of Art BTW). Hit on Devil's Tower next and immediately knew it would be correct.

Re: TD 405 - HARRISON FORD (REVEALED)

I had good intentions to enter, but after a drop, sheep and aural in the first three questions I gave up. I think your self-assessment is accurate.

ARGH! If not for Mark Allen != Paul Allen, I'd be top three.

Alexander did not seem to be enjoying himself, and Alex's good-natured ribbing of the contestants did not help.

Got FJ without considering any other teams.

Re: The crisis in TDs

I'm relatively new around here and have entered perhaps a couple dozen TDs. I play to have fun and while it's exciting to be among the leaders for a handful of questions it usually doesn't last. To keep this post from being a list of negatives, I want to say Thank You to all that have put together a...

Knew what event FJ referenced but couldn't pull the town. Went with Dodge City even though it didn't feel right.

Yes, that was my initial thought as well. Blew about five seconds trying to make the dates work before I gave up and went down the correct path.

Another guess for Poe on FJ, even though I think of him more as a short story writer and wasn't sure if he had married and/or sired a son.

Re: FJs for the 11/19/18 week

4.5/5 on FJ this week (had Munich, couldn't come up with Montreal). First time I've been this close to a perfect week in a long time.

Re: Friday, November 16, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was unaware that melli->honey, but I had enough sense to think of another melli- word: mellifluous. Hmmm - something sweet - honey is sweet - oh, honey badgers were a thing a few years ago - got nothing better so down it goes.

Solid group of finalists. It should be an entertaining couple of games.

The box could be "European Rivers" for $1 and I would still flail. Wrote Rhine and Rhone just to have something. Rivers in general are definitely something I need to bone up on.

Re: TD 400 - RR (Q1-Q5 revealed)

Check Tybalteon's score for Q4: you either gave him 7 points for a DROP or mistyped his SHEEP.

Never heard of the Stone of Scone. Took a WAG and wrote Ark of the Covenant (thinking that a legend doesn't necessarily have to be accurate).

As a joke I wrote "None of the responses have the letter Z in them" and it turns out that two of them do. Geez, I can't even smart off correctly.

Precalled Beowolf (WECIB?) and submitted as my answer, even though I was 90% sure that was not the name of the creature. I've heard Grendel but would never have been able to pull it.

Re: Monday, October 22, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was never getting this FJ. Warm-weather retreat made me think of summer and of more comfortable northern climes during that time of year. Many thanks to you. I thought I was the only one who read this clue this way. I thought the wording could be interpreted either way, 1) a place in warm weather...

FWIW, I pronounce the L in all of those words except for Calf.

Also FWIW, at times I can be insufferably pedantic.
