Do you think they would have taken "the Hindu Triumverate" for the clue that wanted Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva? I'm counting it, for now.

Never read OMaM, so the clue meant nothing to me. I had no response.

Interesting, Santiago's population is greater than Buenos Aires when only using the city proper, but the opposite is true when factoring in the metro areas. There's a lot of cities like that. Using city-proper, Jacksonville is by far the largest city in Florida, being almost twice the size of Miami...

The way Rodgers pronounced Borden, with the stress on the second syllable, as if to emphasize that an E was used in the name, followed immediately by announcing a misspelling, had me questioning what the actual surname spelling was--Bordin? Bordon? Bordan? That was my thinking, too. Odd mention, re...

The name is Learjet (OK, fine, it's Bombardier Learjet), not Lear. Lear doesn't do airplanes.

It was a dig in the sense that it, in the football world, might be an indication that LaFleur doesn't have full confidence in his abilities. That simply isn't possible. It was 100% LaFleur making the wrong call. Rodgers completed 70.7% of his passes for nearly 4300 yards, with 48 TD and 5 -- yeah, ...

I was expecting something more in FJ than a snarky comment from Brandon. Yeah, but it was funny as hell. For FJ I started off with Phil Donahue and was pretty happy with that guess. Then Mr. Rogers occurred to me and I wasn't sure which way to go. For the clue, I liked Fred Rogers better than Donah...

The only oceanographic institute I know is Woods Hole and I was pretty sure that wasn't it. I followed two of the contestants with Hearst (although I wa...

Rodgers next, then Anderson Cooper, then Bill Whitaker, then Mayim Bialik. Each gets two weeks.
There is a two-week gap between Whitaker and Bialik, as well.

I was confused by the Richard III clue when it said "This bard royal" and thought they were going for a noble that wrote, not a Shakespeare character.
Yeah, that's the problem with all caps. "This Bard royal ..." gives a hint, at least.
