I Have Something In Common With Alex Trebek

I've been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. My particular case is probably fairly survivable. I'll be having surgery hopefully soon. One thing I can say about the experience is that it's really painful, and it's been hard to get more than two hours of sleep a night. For Alex Trebek to go through it ...

Re: Tuesday, July 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, I was thinking El Dorado but my brain was already racing ahead to other fantasy lands and so I blurted out Shangri-la, which was an answer later on....and Jason rang in first for that one. Was kicking myself over that mistake....and for not betting it all when I hit the one daily double (with...

Re: Monday, July 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't understand James' FJ bet. Wouldn't $9,601 have been optimal? That's enough to take first place if Jason gets FJ wrong or bets $0, yet it is also enough to keep second place if Cristina gets FJ wrong. Assuming a sensible lockout wager from Jason (in the $8401-9599 range), James would have to...

JJ gave a fan favorite performance in just one show. Wish we could have seen more of her.

Wasn't there a Shirley Jackson clue in either an FJ or DD not too many years ago?

Re: Monday, July 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game's FJ was a major trap for a younger player with a crush lead over an older player. Expo '67 was well known at the time but the reference window for it has long closed. Good knowledge on the champ's part to get it.

Re: Thursday, June 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought of Arlo but only in the context of wondering what they'd do with "Who is Guthrie?" I was hoping one of the three would try it so I could find out. I'm definitely on the side that says there's no way they should accept it, and I doubt they would. I also agree that a pre-FJ instruction woul...

In my job in a used record store I've been processing a large folk collection with titles from Peggy Seeger and Mike Seeger. They are half-siblings of Pete Seeger.

Re: Friday, May 31, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Does this clue refer to the Randy Newman who did "Short People?" Because if so I'm totally clueless as to any Oscar nominations he may have gotten or who the heck Lionel or the other alleged Newmans on this list even are. OK, I've heard of Alfred Newman (not the Mad guy) but had no idea any of thes...

I'm curious how many here came up with Elizabeth I's death year. I certainly did not.
I remembered the 1603 date from the start of King James' reign
