Re: Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rhianna came to me instantly, but I never thought of Adele. I guess because, to the best of my knowledge, I haven't heard any of her songs. (I worded it that way because I very well might have heard her stuff and not known it was her, just like I just found out recently "Edge of Glory" was Lady Gag...

Re: Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Judges: "Portuguese water poodle" for "Portuguese water dog"? (I seemed to recall the Obamas were looking at a particular breed of hypoallergenic poodle for the First Dog. I'd have to say no. The Water Poodle seems to be a mixed breed. I almost said waterhound a la Jeff Kirby, then remembered Portu...

I got final after about 15 seconds, saw Haiti as immediate negbait (people may disagree with me), but the obvious part is its not an independent island.

Re: Tuesday, June 5, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I saw Shaker Heights and shouted Ohio off the top of my lungs, noting that my Erie Railroad research and research into Shaker Heights, Ohio's history paid off somewhere. Got final after about 15 seconds running through well known actresses rich enough to own their own studio. I vote Fran's story the...

ETA: When Final was revealed I immediately told myself Pan Am or TWA. I remembered reading that TWA (and in retrospect still have faint memories of the announcement on TV) was gone in 2001. 2001? Hm, didn't realize it's been gone that long. I eliminated it because I remembered that Flight 800 was i...

It tends to help when you did some reading on airlines the other day. When Final was revealed I immediately told myself Pan Am or TWA. I remembered reading that TWA (and in retrospect still have faint memories of the announcement on TV) was gone in 2001. Said Pan-Am then as my answer, my family coul...

Well, it also broke a streak since David Gard in March of 3-time champs (Beau Henson, Jacob Silverman, Dan Adkinson and Jessamine Price). Nice to finally have another 4-day champ.

Re: Thursday, May 17, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Great competitive game though. Congrats to Chuck.

I had a 50/50 final idea immediately, Kentucky Derby or the World Series. Thought about the fact that I've never heard of an 1875 World Series, so went with the former. That paid off.

I think the most amusing thing about this game is that it made someone post indignantly on the sonypictures board about the Dan Quayle joke being presented as a fact. Amusing is a bit of an understatement. I found that post downright hilarious. jboard may be the best place on the internet for intel...

All three were quick on the draw today, and we STILL leave 10 clues unplayed in J! What. The. HELL. I have to believe Alex's monologue had a piece in that problem.

Instaget final as well. Nice to see Chris Wallace make up for his Fox News colleague (who I have been both cheering for), Dana Perino.

Tomorrow should be mighty interesting.

My first thought on the movie ratings was X, then remembered it's not a real rating ... Kareem and I remember when it was a real rating. I feel sorry for whomever was stuck sitting behind Kareem in the X-rated theater. Although perhaps it would be best to avoid using the word "stuck" in that settin...

Kareem gets his 2nd YouTube moment in 2 appearances. Can't help laugh though. Now how that was a triple stumper is beyond me.

I have to join the epically slow club here. I was cheering for Gibbs the entire way, and I am happy to see him win a triple stumper.

I also have to admit I was on the Catherine brigade. I felt like Elyse may win it, but Catherine stood a good shot. (Also managed to outdo Watson's 2-day total, extremely impressed.)
