I think I got 35. There was 9 more I should have had.

I am terrible at U.S geography. I went with Montana as it was the first state I thought of in that area.

I don't blame the 2 of them going all in on Candy as a FJ category. How hard could that be? Very hard for at least 2 people.. I was thinking that the champ might pull out a come from behind win until the category was revealed.

Re: FJs for the 12/22/14 week

The only science fiction writer I could come up with was Asimov. I struggled with the euro answer, but my brother got it immediately. I've gotten euros from my German relatives. Family members have exchanged them for me.

Put me down for not knowing the doctor's name. I do remember that when he died that I'd make a mental note to remember his name in case in came up on Jeopardy, but I forgot. If he was as famous as people thought he was, then it wouldn't be called Tommy John surgery. It's not inclusive to baseball, b...

Re: Friday, July 18, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Winston should be awarded bonus points for his suit. I was rooting against him on his wardrobe alone, but had a feeling he'd win. I swept the first Madonna category. I would have been in a bit of trouble if it contained any of her more recent videos. I was expecting the same category in DJ about th...

I highly recommend getting to know "Newsradio." One of my favorite sitcoms of all time -- well, the first four seasons (of five), at least.

I loved Newsradio. It just wasn't the same without Phil Hartman.

Re: Monday, June 2, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I've never read the book or seen the movie. I don't know how I came up with it so quickly. I thought that was a terrible Vin Scully impression by Alex. Oh, it was Cosell, now it made more sense. I'm usually good at getting his bad impressions. It was a great run by Julia, sad to see it end. Usually ...

I knew for FJ that Rice has yet to be married. I started to do the math for the other. I realized quickly that it would do me no good. I threw up a hail mary and guessed the president who had never married and hoped he had been the Sof S. I am very pleased thst Brad won again. I'm not a KJ fan, but ...

I've probably heard the name Keynes before, but no idea who he was. I've got one shot tomorrow to avoid being shut out of FJ this week.

I got proctor, but have never heard of the other word. It must be some obscure word they used to try to trip up the Canadian viewers.

FJ I got the answer from the album cover. After I said the answer, I got the connection with the Hindenburg.

FJ was a bit of a guess. Read The Old Man And The Sea way back in high school. It had a Pulitzer Prize winner label on it, 1952, I think. I didn't know any of the facts of the clue, but the time frame seemed right.

Put me down for drizzle. I've never used the word sprinkle to describe rain.

The only time I've ever come across the catsup term is thanks to one C. Montgomery Burns.

I ran the celebrity category. Poor Erik Estrada. I managed to get FJ too. I've yet to read the book, but it seemed obvious. Then again, the FJ with The Picture of Dorian Gray earlier in the season probably was as well and I missed that one.

FJ felt a lot like the previous watermelon one. I stayed away from the dried fruit direction and went with walnut. It sort of looks dried up in the shell.

FJ was an insta guess. It was the only bay I could think of that might be near such a large population.

I was also surprised that they made it through the round with Reiner and Brooks. I didn't find them entertaining at all.

Re: Tuesday, February 18, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I kind of liked Alex calling out the contestants on their lack of knowledge about Canada. It may have been more appropriate to save it for the regular games. I feel bad thinking this considering how I thought people were too tough on the contestants for the first FJ of the tournament.

Re: Monday, February 10, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I did not get FJ. I did not notice it was the boot shaped Italy. If the photo on page one is the one shown on Jeopardy, the heel of Italy seems to be amputated. Calling the contestants out for not knowing it is a bit harsh. It's not unexpected, considering how people are so brutal about the wagering...
