I'm impressed that (as of now) the Raptors FJ is polling above 90%. If you didn't know the Raptors' logo it required you to know 1. that the Toronto Raptors are an NBA team, and 2. that the reference is to the dinosaur rather than birds of prey.
totally agree...and sports questions are usually a weak point of people who watch/play jeopardy...the fact hat 2 of the contestants got it right was a bit shocking

Never heard of David Hockney. I would've answered Buddy Ebsen (Beverly Hillbillies) :P

Tired on Monday--said India and Bangladesh (bzzt!). No recollection of having heard of Hockney. No chance of getting A Room with a View on Friday. Have not read nor seen it.
