Re: TD 370 - CLASSIC AREA CODES 2xx (205 & 206 REVEALED)

UNUSED Jones (My turn for a boner. I mixed up Jones Soda with Jones New York. As AT would say, "no harm, no foul on that one.") I would have gone with Jones Soda Co. but for the fact that I didn't think (correctly, as it turns out) that it had the name of another city in its products, and I might n...

Re: One DJ! Round clue from the 3/8/18 game (Plane)

If Jeopardy! consisted of nothing but WWII-era aviation clues, 10-year-old me would have been Ken Jennings before Ken Jennings. I've retained enough knowledge from that time to get this clue, but I had to fight the Pavlovian urge to say P-51, because that seems like the only American fighter that wo...

Re: Tuesday, January 23, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Poll request for "I figured out they were going for Sherlock's brother, but I couldn't pull the name." I knew it was an unusual "M" name, but I got stuck on "Mordecai" even though I knew it wasn't quite right, and couldn't think of anything else in 30 seconds. I wonder if they would have accepted "M...

For crying out loud...crazy jacket, looked a lot like Sager...answered too quickly. I took my time and still answered Sager. You mean to tell me that this guy https://cdn.nba.net/nba-drupal-prod/styles/landscape/s3/2016-12/Craig%20Sager%20iso%20waves.jpg?itok=8IRVljdn isn't a 30-year-older version ...

Excited to see the results from Q8, my answer was literally the only one I could come up with.
Same. I hope this doesn't foreshadow a mega-sheep.

Re: Tuesday, January 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

My friends tried to get me into Arrested Development, but they started me on some random episode in season 3 or 4. They were laughing hysterically and I honestly thought the show was the dumbest thing I'd ever seen. They said the humor builds on itself over time and provides its own context and you...

Re: TD 363

Also not a fan of question 8. Although I will withhold final judgment until I see the answers. Maybe I just missed the boat on how to think about this one and it is actually a great, unique style of question.

No kidding. I could have named almost every one on that list and I choose the mega-sheep. Baaaa!

Re: Thursday, November 30, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just another vote for "precalled Final based on the category." Almost impossible to come up with a clue for that category that doesn't reference the cedars of Lebanon. Somebody on Reddit managed to come up with a possibility; the key on the Vatican's flag references Matthew 16:19. Hence the "almost...

Re: Thursday, October 12, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm going to take the field over Austin in TOC. Not a particular tough call IMO. I'm still not sold on Austin's actual game play, just his ability to bet big and beat up on lesser opponents. Just look what happened today when he went up against someone who really came to play. The best thing Austin...

Re: Learned League 74 - Official Thread

OK, how could the MCWA on the Julia Child question have been "Spock"? What would make 11% of the contestants answer him for a question looking for an American author? That's more than weird in my book. Dr. Benjamin Spock, not pointy ears Spock. I nearly WAG'd Spock myself, even though I was fairly ...

My incorrect guess for the Monday FJ! clue is not one of the 66 73 books of the Bible.

Re: 2017 TOC Pre-Taping Stats

I think if Tim Kutz does get in, he's at least a silver. Solid gold for sure. Average Coryat is the single best apples to apples comparison in my opinion, and he has everyone beat there. Even if you take the average Coryat of the superchamps' 5 highest games, only Seth Wilson has him beat, and that...
