Are there missing words in the D1R1 8-pt. clue?
Teems with quiet fun.

It's a little awkward, but there's nothing missing. Try reading it again.

Welp, I guess I gave a knee-jerk answer to the knee question before I'd figured out how the theme worked. Womp womp. And city of the big shoulders, ack!

With the Sandburg question, I could think of some of the preceding lines but not the actual answer. If I had remembered this line, I might have tried to be cheeky with Nation's Freight Handler.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I imagine that under the "we want to give you points" ethos of the SHC, anyone who had "big shoulders" in their response will be marked correct. (Most people so far, including me, have said "City of big shoulders," even though the phrase from the poem is "City of the big shoulders"). I doubt they'll penalize players for omitting the definite article. Some people have said "city of broad shoulders," though, and I would personally mark that one as incorrect; but we'll see what the scorers do.

This thread is marked as a spoiler. You don't need to put anything in spoiler tags in this thread (subject to it being about the appropriate SHC round, of course).

I clammed on the 12 pointer about Chicago, but would have gone with "Armpit of America" if this was LearnedLeague.

Yup, I reflexively did the same thing you did. Forgot the name of the category -- in the first question!

And to make it worse, I forgot on another question that wrong answers are penalized while clams are not.

Sigh. Hope I'll remember better the difference between SHC and TD from here on.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

It makes no difference at all on the "get-ability", but I always interpreted the saying from the R1D1 15-point question to be more about harm to the merchant marine than to the navy.

I see that others put "backbone" as an answer to the 9-pointer. I'm not alone on this one... I hope it gets credit. :)
9: An argument that has no logical basis is said to lack one of these.

No matter how many people put it, it doesn't fit the clue.

Are you saying my answer doesn't have a leg to stand on?

In all seriousness, "define backbone" on Google defines a "backbone" as follows:
Google wrote:the series of vertebrae extending from the skull to the pelvis; the spine.
This is a body part
Google wrote:the chief support of a system or organization; the mainstay.
Edit: One example of a system is a logical argument. Therefore, I believe this would get credit.

Your google definition has nothing to do with the clue ("An argument . . . is said to lack"). Leaving aside that an argument is not a "system or organization," If you can find examples of sources saying an argument lacks a backbone then you might have grounds to argue that "backbone" should be credited on the 9-pointer.

Whoops, same. I figured it out for the later clues, but then I didn't go back and look at my earlier answers. At least it's only one point off (unless a ref, a flex, or a lex is a body part...).

I guess I could google it now, but was Joseph [...] the musical? I've never seen it, but I thought it had something to do with dreams. I clammed on enough things that turned out to be right last year that it seemed to be worth the risk.

Hmm, many of the examples I have been looking at talk about people lacking backbone, but not an argument. I guess I've been using it wrong? Or does someone else have an example I haven't seen.
