Re: Reretaken Down

Baseball's own Armond White... :roll: That's one name I haven't heard in years. Looking at his Twitter, I see he's still the same old Armond, though. I wonder how many fights he's picked / names he's misspelled this month... Y'know, though -- as someone who despises the groupthink that's so prevale...

Re: Tuesday, November 6, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Mary Ann is really really good, huh? Lonnie was in my audition group -- first among us that I recognize on the show. A lot of negs (5) for me today, mostly of the dumber sort. Maybe I was too aggressive, but I think I just confidently made the wrong mental connections, which, with a moment's further...

Re: Monday, November 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't realize Mortal Kombat changed studios (and, related, that Midway had gone under). Otherwise the 'K' TOM should've been a massive gimme. Right, I didn't recognize the name of the studio and I think that made me hesitant, because, while I couldn't name offhand the studio that I associated wi...

Re: Monday, November 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I suppose they want to get their "This opens next week" adverts out today and tomorrow...? That was a little excessive. I got FJ, matching my solve total from last week. My first thought was the right one; I detoured a jot by considering Madeline, but she just seemed too out there, plus I was pretty...

Nobody cares about anybody's Coryat/Lach trash from a n old game FTFY? ;) For whatever it's worth: I care. I look at it this way: if this were a weightlifting forum, I think it would be appropriate, in addition to talking about upcoming competitions and new gear and strategy, to talk about how one ...

Re: FJs for the 10/29/18 week

That error has ruled the response incorrect on J! before, I'm pretty sure. I thought I remembered an FJ where one or two of the contestants were negged because of it. Plenty of times, most recently here, though I can't immediately find an FJ... http://j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6005&highlig...

Sorry to see Emily go, especially on an unforced error. I haven't seen the image she butchered, but unless there's a monocle, cigarette holder, or a wheelchair, I wouldn't expect younger folks to know Truman from Roosevelt by facial features. I don't think I could. Maybe, if it was the same as the ...

I had heard the FJ fact before; I imagine I would have gotten it anyway. Whew, no Box of Shame! How does it happen that "gingham" comes up on Jeopardy on the day that I wear gingham for the first time in my life? A step slow putting together the Alexander the Great clue, and forgot the category mome...

Re: Thursday, October 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

First of all, I responded "Baltimore oriole" on FJ because that's the official designation for the state bird of Maryland. That said, the clue could have been phrased better. If the judges wanted players to respond with two words, they should have phrased the clue "This 2-word name of a black and o...

Sigh. I ultimately matched MarkBarrett's answer. "OK, which German rivers come up on Jeopardy? The Main and the Rhine for sure, right? And the Danube? But does the Danube even go through Germany? Everyone thinks so, and I used to think so too, but I remember looking at a map after missing the Danube...

Re: Tuesday, October 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How exactly did Alex explain the "3 F Club" category? "chieF oF staFF" has four Fs. When they say things like "each correct response will have n Xs", have they ever meant "at least n Xs" rather than "exactly n Xs"? They have accepted responses of the "at least..." form on the grounds that the categ...

Re: Monday, October 29, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Neill’s pronunciation of the Malory work was close enough for a correct response while no way Alex was going to let it slide without giving his own take on how to say the title. In real time, I thought for sure he had botched it badly enough for a neg. I'll have to listen to it again later. I heard...

I was more Chris Davis than Brooks Robinson on FJ today, dropping the ball as two of the contestants did.

Been a while since I last negged four times in the J! round!

"I've Got You, Babe" would get—and has gotten—a player negged. The title isn't in the present perfect tense.
Noted! Thanks.
