Does anyone know when "cockpit" was first used? These days we refer to it as a flight deck.

Re: Monday, April 23, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nobody got Elvis?!? Or Rupert Brooke? Anyway, good questions and I was glad to Cindy win it. She looked a bit out of her league but she's actually quite good. The returning champ was annoying with his buzzing. Did he do that in the prior games?

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

Which is ironic because most regular viewers tune out the teen tournament. I'll watch some of Power Players but a half hour of chris Matthews & some other idiots will be deleted right away.

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

I was in San Marino vert recently so that was an easy get. 5/5!!! I was surprised no one got Duke Ellington, especially with that tie depicted on the stamp. Easy boards but at least 2/3 players did well.

Yes, thanks for the WML video too! Game Show Network used to show those at three a.m. & it was one of the most interesting game shows ever; certainly better than J! lately.

Re: Squeaking toward oblivion

I said "shoot, it must have been Ford!" That's what Arthur Bremer and "Squeaky" Fromme probably muttered at one time or another, too. I get the Fromme allusion, but please help me on the Bremer connection. Was Ford a pre-Wallace target for him? BTW, what if someone had answered "Who is Ongania?" (P...

Same here but the email also gives a fun SA-based game. Hey, it's something.

Re: Thursday, April 19, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Another tough game to watch. I'm not Canadian & even I took umbrage that they didn't know Harper. 4th FJ in a row but I'll be away tomorrow so I won't know until Sunday night if I get the last one. Woonsockett seemed easy to me but I've been through RI many times.

I'm by no means a Doors completist much less a fan & I knew that one easily. That book was a massive bestseller years ago. The Steven Tyler autobiography is always in my way when I'm looking for good books at BJ's.

44 but thankfully, the ones I got wrong were J14, Forks, Emma Stone & some other teenybop pop crap.

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'd love to see S. Africa too but those clues were just awful. I guess I'm losing patience with the clue crew & the guest clue-givers. It's all Oprah's fault.

Re: Wednesday, April 18, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

No, nothing about Beatles in the clue. Not a tough board but those S. Africa clues seemed Dr. Oz-ish. It really dullens the show. I got Elmer Gantry although I've never read the book. I assume this is another one day champ streak... Sister Wendy was featured on 60 Minutes. I haven't seen her show in...

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

Tough game to watch. 7/8 clues went unrevealed. I got FJ but I did think the Met first but then I thought DC might have more museum visitors. As for the silly story about going to Ireland & not liking potatoes, I'll refrain from comment..

Re: No More J! On Channel 55

Thanks for the info, Davey. I thought I was imagining my pre-vacation DVRing! I usually record it on Channel 7 because in non-HD it looks pretty good but I liked the option of catching it earlier on 55 if necessary.

No wonder Judy was making noises! Too bad she didntcross out the first name. Great game though & I was glad the woman in the middle won if Judy didn't. Not a big fan of bow ties.
