Re: Wednesday, June 6, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

My third grade self, who could name all the presidents in order along with their names, is ashamed of me for blowing that FJ. I'm a huge baseball nerd, and I was irrationally hoping for stuff like WHIP, VORP, WARP3, and WHOOPS. Yes, these are all real stats. How about LIPS (late inning pressure sit...

Re: Monday, June 4, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

A gutsy move, but I was pretty sure he'd miss it, since I knew Claudia was going to win. Funny they had a clue about Toto, which sang the song Africa, which was the subject of FJ. The song also has a line about Mars. The astroid Eros crossed the orbit of Mars. Thought of South Africa, went with Eth...

Second consecutive day I knew FJ!, they didn't.

Had it between Boston and Richmond, decided that Boston didn't have any Presidents buried there.

Re: Thursday, May 10, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was instaget, insultingly easy, and...familiar. I might be confusing it with another clue, but I swear they've asked us this before. Last season they asked: Of the 7 continents, the 2 that todate, have never been the setting of a "Best Musical" Tony winner. Incidentally, this FJ! will be obsolet...

Re: Friday, May 4, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Are the contestants aware of the previous games winners and second place totals? If so, she made a bad wager, but if not, then can't blame her too much. I wouldn't be surprised if they are not aware because it would be unfair to the contestants who play first. FJ was instaget as was the tie breaker...

I've think I've heard him mention QF winners from earlier in the week before, but can't say for sure. Are QF games always aired in the order they are taped? Yes. FIrst round heats (my preferred term, because that's what they are) are always sequential. It would be nice if AT mentioned the winner of...

Re: Monday, April 9, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

23 right today. For the Black Hawk clue in the first round- does my response of "chopper" count instead of helicopter? I swept the Math category. Funny, Math has always been my worst subject in school. Did not guess FJ correctly. I went with Paul Newman. Nailed Buddy Holly off Gary Busey. PS: Was a...

This was a pretty tough board; my own Coryat today was 3.3 standard deviations below my mean Coryat for the season. I was a fan of all of the wagers tonight in Final Jeopardy!; not quite so much on the Daily Doubles, but I'll live. :) LOVED that "Chopped!" was mentioned in the HUNGER GAMES category...

No, but pleasantly surprised to have a Carl Albert reference in there, as I'm from Oklahoma City and of a generation that knows CA as a high school instead of a person.

Shocked (and negatively, too) that FJ! wasn't an across the board correct response.

I nailed it, cold! And I'm not even a teacher.

Got final this week. Great fought game though. Probably wild cards for both of them, but we'll see.

You'd be asked "Which one?", most assuredly.

Thankful the FJ! didn't ask for BOTH alphabetically first and last, as I NEVER would have guessed Vietnam blindly.


Then again, I would never have guessed King Solomon on Friday's FJ, either.

I had Texas-Louisiana for FJ!

Never heard of Norman, New Mexico.

Over there, they associate "Norman" with Sue Thompson more than Oklahoma.
