Re: Wednesday, May 9, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yay 3 for 3 in picks for the finals. I knew Catherine and Elyse were the top of the bunch, but after reviewing Rose's game, I felt she was the other candidate. Am I the only one who has never read the Hunger Games or even heard of it before the movie came out? Just curious mainly. (Admittedly I am n...

Re: Tuesday, May 8, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Now will Maurice Sendak come up in today's game? No but MCA did. This show always manages. Man, Catherine and Elyse combined have managed over $75,000 ($76,401 total.) in their semis. That is amazing. When is the last time a teen tournament had any total that high in one game? (Forget twice.) So fa...

I learned about Paul Gaugin via Jeopardy, but every team I see a name for a painting like that, I know who they mean.

Now only if we could get the adults to wager for WCs so well. :)

I don't think so, but every time I look at him I swear he looks like an older version of Justin Long from Dodgeball and Accepted.

Re: TD 148...... 1960s music quiz

Blah I sheeped on Question Mark and the Mysterians, was hoping that might be a bit hard. Of course, I 50/50'd that with Angel of the Morning, which as of last week now has the Juice Newton version of on my iPod.

This is only my first TD anyway, so I am not expecting to win.

Gary Puckett & The Union Gap (#3) (3 pts): dhkendall reddpen Roadgeek Adam Ha! That was the ONLY one I could identify, and only because I was reading their Wikipedia page a few days before Randy's TD went up!

I expect the most points for people will be coming on Q1. Three bands with a bunch of people who are pretty easy to come up with.

Edit: My original wording may not have been wise.

Re: No More J! On Channel 55

No, I recorded it on their channel when I went to Italy 3 weeks ago. TV 10 and TV 55 are effectively the same channel, just on DirecTV and Cablevision with different numbers. I have Cablevision, so I have Channel 10, and those Jeopardy runs have been replaced by Matlock. I know at least 2012, 2011 ...

it's been missing for quite a while on TV 10 / TV 55 (subscriber issues there). I'd have to say probably about a year. The website fails to recognize this though.

Re: Monday, April 16, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Maybe I'm alone in this, but I thought that the "Hey There, Delilah" clue may be the most undervalued $200 clue ever. I've never heard of the writer, the band, or the song. Is it all that well-known? No way I was making the jump from Harold to Hal in FJ. The Plain White Ts are a 2007-2008 fad. A ma...

Re: Monday, April 16, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Does anyone here ever wonder if Jeopardy is in our minds sometimes? I was on my bike this afternoon and thinking of a Jeopardy category and clue ideas, I thought of it as Today's Country song -> artist. One of the 5 I came up with was "When I Said I Do" by Clint Black and Lisa Hartman Black (I've se...
