Re: Monday, April 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Bleh, I need to commit the word "phlegmatic" to memory because I'm pretty sure I missed it the last time it was a correct response too.

Re: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Some clues that I missed that I want to get next time are... Liverpool. To be fair, that was a tough clue if you don't know that exact game. It was easy to neg with Manchester United because they are England's biggest club and are also known as Reds(mostly Red Devils, but I have heard them called R...

Re: Wednesday, April 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also fell for the Exodus bait for DD1, but my wife, the worship leader, was quick to correct me. Easy 5/5 for her, only 3/5 for me as I also didn't know John. I recently wrote a trivia clue about first Thanksgiving held by Chief Massasoit and the Wampanoag tribe, so it was fun to see my research p...

This is one of those FJ's that I thirst for as I prepare for my eventual lucky day behind the podium, and that's one that I flat-out don't know. I can honestly say I have never heard of Tivoli Gardens before, and matched a few other people here who said The Little Mermaid statue. This one will be ad...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Well, it was technically announced it in an official capacity, so I feel it's cleared the bar to be LL canon at least and thus qualifies for inclusion in the thread. Edit: Geeeeze, it did happen that fast. All I did was step away for an hour (and seven minutes) to finish Watchmen during my lunch ho...

Re: Monday, April 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

THE HUMAN BODY category was a strangely valued IMO. Getting "plexus" should have been worth muuuch more than just $400, probably down two spots. FICTION for $1600 was also very weirdly written. David Baldacci is a legal thriller novelist. Freddy the Pig is a series of children's books by Walter R. B...

Re: Friday, April 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was so gassed to get this Final, not only to give myself a 4/5 for the week, but also because I didnt fall for the negbait. Did anyone else immediately celebrate that they got it right just after the first "Who is Brigham Young?" was ruled incorrect? I had a big fist pump after Dakota's judgement....

Shakespeare's longest play being Hamlet(and its the longest by far) should be J! Pavlov for any prospective contestant. The fact that this went 1/3 is mind-boggling.

Fox really shot himself in the foot by not taking the Alex Jacob approach of taking your time to reread and make sure on his DD. Is the Domesday Book pronounced the way Dennis gave?

I confess to not knowing much about the Lizzie Borden story, so today's Final was a good wake up call for me. I didn't know the time-frame, the location, anything. I honestly thought Lizzie was much younger than 32 years old when she was thrust into the public eye. I said Parker as well knowing full...

Mark me down for a perfect 15/15 on DD's this week. I definitely had to sweat on the last one, as it took me a few seconds to think of a word for "deceased" that rhymed with great Kate. Got there to my relief. Knew all the facts about Angel Falls, since it there was a clue about its discovery in the...
