Re: Thursday, November 1, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Judges: is "truantism" acceptable for "absenteeism"? "Truancy" is the term I am most familiar with, so I'd guess no. Like you, I made the "expected" connection on FJ. I just watched the show and I went truantism myself. I also am getting flagged by spell check as that not being a word. How about th...

WABC chose to not pre-empt, and just delayed the start to 7:01.


Also yay for Keith. I got final after dropping most of the names that I knew.

Was rooting for Sarah- she's practically local to me. (My FaceBook homepage "banner" is actually a shot of a bend on North Creek in full fall foliage. Looks to be only slightly upriver from North Creek's hoppin' downtown! ) (Wanted to post it here, but it's too big.) I had the same situation since ...

Re: Tuesday, October 16, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mega-congrats Dr. J. That is by far an impressive record-breaking performance. I had two ideas at the immediate start, Peanuts and Family Circus (based on the clue, I couldn't remember when FC debuted) I went with Peanuts instead because it was definitely at least older. Aside from Ken Jennings and ...

I went through people who I knew and while trying I wrote down Ron Howard and stuck with it. I couldn't think of another person.

Congrats, Steph, we finally broke this season rut of 3-time champs or less. :) - Five days is nothing to laugh at though.

I may be wrong (Stefan clarify), but Celeste DiNucci managed to lock Watson I believe.

Re: Reretaken Down

At least some government officials have a sense of humor: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2012/al11/al112012.discus.020.shtml Don't know if I'd consider a meteorologist a "government official"... A lot of the NHC makes cracks like that. Dr. Avila and Dr. Franklin are quite well known for doing such.

Re: Summer Repeats

They didn't rerun the 2010 TofC that SUmmer, so this is good to them see rerunning this. I suspect they'll rerun the Power Players' week, which means that one of the tourney reruns will only see the second week repeated. I can't imagine them not rerunning Teen or COllege. Probably the Teen 2nd week...

Re: Just saw this on the J! webpage

http://www.jeopardy.com/news/alextaping.php I am however, digging the new logo. Am very excited to see the opening graphics for Season 29. The fact there's a new logo there (that I didn't notice before! Thanks, Adam!) might well mean that is a screenshot from season 29, just not a game that any pla...

My dad and I had stand and stares (not something I like doing.) When trampoline was revealed as correct, I remembered that I saw a news piece of olympic trampoline sports. I immediately proceeded to slap myself in the face for that. - Note, there are some Jerseyans who are going to be in the Olympic...

I've heard of The Artist, but I did miss it. (I didn't like the choice of clue words. If you've never watched the film, such as myself, kind of hard to know that.) I was seriously rooting for Mike to win again. Not impressed by Andy or Lisa whatsoever. Well, at least this season is almost over. (I'm...

Now I've used and seen at points Anthony "Mad" Wayne. Would that be acceptable, since Mad is in the middle not at the front?

Interesting wager from our champion-- like she gave it no real consideration, just carefree pick a number for a round total wager. One might say she wagered Blythely. Not the word I'd use. Anyone who wagers solely to end up on a round number deserves to lose. The Blythe Paradox? (I like that note) ...
