Re: Wednesday, February 27, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

My WAG for FJ was "ask him" (as in, ask JFK if you want to know the answer), which turned out to be a decent guess.

Re: Friday, February 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

A good game to watch. Props to Keith for the big DD wager that helped him get a lock.

Picked up some Lach Trash on Smiley's People and Bone-setter's Daughter.

No chance on FJ.

I also went with Dublin for FJ. I then said some choice words when I saw the wagers.

Re: Monday, January 28, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The FJ clue confused me and I went with Lifetime Achievement before realizing it wasn't a "competitive" category.

Re: Monday, December 17, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Tuned in for FJ. The strange wording of the clue nearly threw me off in the direction of musical instruments, but line + posts + 1854 pointed me toward telegraph.

Re: Friday, November 2, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

As someone who doesn't know much about college football, I was pleased that I was able to get to California and then the correct response for FJ. However, I wasn't very confident in my response because I couldn't figure out a connection between Golden Bears and earthquakes.

I have never played Angry Birds. My WAG for FJ was Farmville.

I don't think I've ever heard that rhyme, so FJ was hopeless for me.

Re: Thursday, October 18, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Contrary to Alex's suggestion, the dates hurt rather than helped me on FJ. The period 1953-1990 made me think of the Cold War, East Germany, and the Soviets, so I ended up going with Stalin (who died in 1953, so it actually could have made sense to rename a city after him). I would've needed more TO...

For FJ, the combination of Authors + 1890 + Congo river led me to Conrad.

Mesh was weird, but swept SH champs (in my wheelhouse; how'd that expression originate anyway?).

Re: Tuesday, July 31, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

It took me a few seconds to make the Geoffrey --> giraffe connection and arrive at the correct FJ response. However, I thought this was a fairly difficult FJ clue for Kids Week. I've owned literally a hundred ballcaps in my life and the number of them with some mesh on the back of them is exactly ze...

Re: Monday, July 30, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was an enjoyable game to watch. It was essentially a two-person game from the start, but the quick-paced, back-and-forth battle between Matthew and Anna kept things interesting. The sum of the three DD wagers ($460) is the lowest I think I've ever seen in a game. I thought we might see measly w...

Re: Tuesday, July 24, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think Prudence's FJ response should have been judged correct. It's not as though she had simply written "Who is Alex?", which would not have been specific enough. By identifying the show with which he was associated, her response was fairly specific (in my opinion). At least the outcome of the gam...

Re: Friday, July 20, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought the second sentence in the FJ! clue ending with three exclamation points was actually a big TOM -- I don't think the J! writers are in the habit of using multiple exclamation points for emphasis, so I figured they had to be quoting written dialogue, something that appeared in only one rec...

Re: Friday, July 20, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

When the FJ clue came up, my initial thought was: "Well, I don't stand a chance. I haven't seen a movie with those lines." Then I began to wonder: "What if the reference to not talking is TOM for a silent film?" I then remembered there was a silent film that was quite popular last year. After about ...

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also got FJ on what was basically a lucky guess. I first thought of Martha, which didn't seem right, then came up with Abigail, which seemed more probable for some reason, so that was my response.
