Ian was a little slow getting the hang of the game, but the learning curve was rising by the end. A game’s worth of experience should help on Monday for a smoother start.

The FJ! category tricked me as I thought it was going to be Coolidge for being born on July 4th and some combination of the three who died on July 4th. Nope, more recent history than that and I agree with Alex there will be plenty of home solves. I knew the states and I knew the guy, so as for any week in regular play I’ll gladly take 80%.

8 weeks and 40 games to go this season.

I wasn’t sure here, but I knew Nixon was Yorba Linda. Didn’t know where he died, but that seemed good enough for a guess. 5/5 for the week!

There are only two presidents born west of TX and one of them is still alive. Kinda narrows it down. :)

And they specified continental US, so basically only one.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I can't say that Jeff resembles Will Ferrell like Chad Smith does.

FJ seemed too obvious, but I could think of no other U.S. President who was born in a west coast state.

I spent the entirety of the Think music wondering if I had forgotten an Oregonian or something. Super-instaget FJ. My forehead is still sore from yesterday's smack after the FJ reveal, so I needed an easy one.

Got stuck on Reagan because of his pre-Presidential career, totally blanked on Nixon.

Nixon immediately came to mind but it seemed so easy that I spent all of the think music wondering what I might have missed.

This FJ will most likely become outdated when the other one dies.

He'd pretty much have to die in Hawaii or maybe the Marshall Islands to be closer.

Not a strong FJ category for me, but the presidents I associate with the far west US (i.e. California) the most are Reagan and Nixon. I knew Reagan died in California, so I went with Nixon and hoped for the best.

Well, Nixon was from California... can't think of anyone else, let's go with that.
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.

Like Jeffrey I said Hoover for FJ. I would have said Nixon, but I really thought he died near his home in Yorba Linda.

Nixon spent his last years in New Jersey, after a brief unhappy sojourn on the Upper East side of New York. A Sunday installment of the Spiderman comic strip at the time showed him living next door to the Kingpin. Later he (Nixon, that is) and Jackie K-O lay critically ill in the same hospital at the same time.
I'm smart and I want respect.
