Re: The connection between a quiz bowl background and J! success

As someone with several years of high school and then college quiz bowl experience, it will only help out in the academic areas. If you live under a rock and don't go to the movies or own a television (me), no matter how great you are at quiz bowl, it doesn't substitute in for pop culture knowledge....

42/50. Seemed hard.

(41 if they didn't count O'Henry. Apostrophe? What the hell was I thinking?)

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I have a feeling we may have our first superchamp of 2019, while we're at it. What makes a superchamp? Is he the first to get over $100k in 1 game? :shock: Also, 110,914 seems somewhat random. Yes. First to score anything over 77k. Before him, only on two occasions had anyone ever scored above 70k....

"King James" seems a fairly accurate description at this point.

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

Anyone else finding the Art ML absurdly easy? So much for ModKos R. (MD3 was a lil harder, almost everyone flunked the Weems question, but still much easier than what I would imagine ModKos R to be) I am 3rd in my group with 17/18 right, for cripes sake. EDIT: Nonetheless, still a very enjoyable ML....

Another strong showing by James against smart challengers. Marshall Shelburne is no pushover, for instance: he's a known quizzing person and scored well on the WQC. Anyhow, can't wait for more pearl-clutching about James' "character" on Twitter on Monday!

Got Final Jeopardy at Weber, and element clues confirmed it.

Someone explain this FJ! to me? I looked up the airport and I don't see what DEL has to do with anything. All commercial airports have a three-letter IATA code, for instance LAX for Los Angeles International Airport, DFW for Dallas-Ft Worth International Airport, etc. If the airport is named after ...

Lilliputian -- thought of it, but reconsidered and put "little"
Chrissy Teigen -- no clue

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

I'm astounded that two players didn't take note of the "two word" stipulation on the FJ! clue. They did say "the" and "an". Not to be pedantic but I wouldn't think articles would count as a word in this case unless in a title or preceding some proper noun(s). I'm now 10 in a row on Final Jeopardies...

FJ! was the stupidest miss I've had in a long time. I just guessed "Finns"... I sort of knew what they were talking about, but the name didn't come to me.

EDIT: Also, yeah, Danish astronomer = Tycho Brahe. Every time.

Silly FJ! clue... I chose Pennsylvania (the obvious one) and Delaware. There's only a difference of eight miles in the distance between ESB and MA and ESB and DE. Not a good FJ! clue at all.
