CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Jonathan Dinerstein is the composer from Los Angeles. who was introduced first on our program today. Had an interesting wedding ceremony. You're into high-tech stuff, obviously.

Jonathan: Well, we were kind of early adopters. quadcopter drones are somewhat common these days, but we had an early model, and I had rigged up a little contraption to hold our wedding rings. And when our officiant said, "Will the ringbearer bring forth the rings?", my friend was standing in the back of the aisle. Piloted it, a little wobbly up the aisle, got up to the altar. I picked the two rings off the top, and it immediately crashed. But I had the rings.

Alex: Oh. Way to go. Good for you.




Alex: Maggie Byrd. A traveler, obviously, who once got stranded where?

Maggie: In Sorrento, Italy.

Alex: I got news for you. If you're gonna be stranded somewhere, that's not a bad place.

Maggie: Not the worst place. Yeah, I was doing study abroad when I was in college, and we had a day off. We went to the isle of Capri. My friend and I got on the boat early, thought we were fine. Got to Sorrento, realized we'd been let onto the wrong boat, all of our friends were on another boat, couldn't contact them. Very dramatic, but we got home in the end.

Alex: Okay. Good for you.




Alex: Kevin Patterson is our champion. She was stranded in Sorrento. You got trapped in a locker?

Kevin: I did. And the nerds did it to me.

Alex: Oh, really?

Kevin: Yeah, we were late to math class one day. But we were doing that because we were--we decided we were going to step into the lockers, and see if we could fit. They slammed the door on me. It got stuck. And then they ran off to class. Had to call 911 to get the fire department to bring an ax and bust me out.

Alex: Why is it that it's always guys who do dumb things? Oh, gosh.

Applause for the players as SPORTS DRAFTS had the first five clues played and each player had at least one correct in it.

The DDs were extra unfriendly to Maggie as not only were they misses, but her facial expressions indicated no recognition or chance to get the right guys. DD3 especially had some deer in the headlights twitching. I was almost reminded of myself on the DD3 in MATH that stumped me back in aught five.

The FJ! category had me hopeful for a famous battleship like the MO or AZ as I knew I had very limited knowledge. My dad who served 10 years in the Navy or my brother who likes attending fleet week events will have a slightly better chance (I would still bet on a miss) if either of them happen to watch later tonight.

The two names I wrote were Truman & Nimitz and I was feeling the motto was more likely a president so I went that way on my Dawson Crossin’. Nope, a clean miss as I did not have the right guy in the mix with the motto (quotes are not my strength) not sounding familiar.

The games lately have been good news for the 4x champs bubbling.

Nailed FJ! thanks to watching Sean Hannity, who NEVER misses an opportunity to call DT a return to "Peace Through Strength".

On customink.com I found this post by an Adam Levine that gives some of the mottos:
SpoilerShow

“Teamwork, a Tradition”
-USS Nimitz (CVN-68)

“I Like Ike”
-USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69)

“We are Legend; Ready on Arrival; The First, the Finest; Eight Reactors, None Faster”
-USS Enterprise (CVN-65) – Deactivated

“Shall not Perish”
-USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72)

“Vis Per Mare” – “Strength from the Sea”
-USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70)

“Qui Plantavit Curabit” – “He who has planted will preserve.”
-USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71)

“Spirit of Freedom”
-USS George Washington (CVN-73)

“Look Ahead”
-USS John C. Stennis (CVN-74)

“The buck stops here”
-USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75)

“Peace Through Strength”
-USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76)

“Freedom at Work”
-USS George H.W. Bush (CVN-77)
If they writers had done Lincoln I may have figured out that one.

I was on the Ike, so I knew it wasn't that one. I thought of Teddy Roosevelt and the Great White Fleet, so I just stopped there. I ran the others through my head, and didn't like the sound of any, so I didn't change it.

If they had the Enterprise's "Eight Reactors, None Faster", I would have got that one easily. It's true, too. The only ships in the fleet faster than the Enterprise were the hydrofoils. That ship could do well over 40 knots flat-out.

FIRST MY BELOVED COLTS MAKE THE PLAYOFFS AND NOW AN ANDREW LUCK CLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice meta-clue there with "potent."


How does "Hulk Hogan" not occur to anyone?

Coryat: $37,000

J: 26R4P. Got DD. 5/5 in World History and Wonders. 4/5 in Charcuterie, Language, Zine, and Drafts (I've always thought of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as a career-long Laker, which I now know is wrong, so he never even occurred to me).

DJ: 18R8P1W. Got both DDs. 3/3 on Goldbergs. 4/5 on Critters, Text Alerts, and Middle "C." 2/4 in On the Road. 1/5 in Movies (recognized the remake and reflexively said "Ocean's Eleven," forgetting it was different for that one; Goodfellas was the only one I got correct).

FJ: Eww. Got it, but eww.

LT: Punk rock, strapping, trachea, Dreyfus, queen bee, Hulk Hogan

The motto rang no bells for me. I figured it had to be a president, but it sounds like something any of them could have said, especially during the Cold War. I went with Truman, since I knew he had a carrier.

The phrase is traced to Hadrian, and there is a USS Hadrian. Unfortunately, it does not get built until the 2410s.

TIL the Washington Nationals exist. And the meaning of the word "charcuterie".

"Haggis" was right on the tip of my tongue, but I just couldn't pull it in time. Just barely missed a run in the category.

0/5 in Movies. None of the titles rang a bell at all.

Proud of myself for getting the Javert DD.

Couldn't think of what a bee would try to free, and was stumped after honey and hive. That was a garbage clue. Didn't know beluga either for a 3/5 in a wheelhouse.

No guess on FJ!, but it seems this one was not easy.

Lach Trash: punk rock, trachea, "Murders in the Rue Morgue", also got the Micah DD
Ten Pound Hammer

Somebody who knows Maggie has to go to the Ship's Hatch store (also in Arlington) and buy her something with the USS Reagan on it.

Econ: 40 knots? Really? Holy cow!

I hope they aren't teaching phony tag lines generated by a pretend conservative movement that only cared about making sure the rich and privileged got richer and more privileged. Maybe they are teaching the parts about renaming ICBM's as "peacekeeper missiles", calling Ketchup a vegetable, voodoo economics, tripling of the national debt, pointless cold war expenditures, race baiting with phony "welfare queen" narratives, ignoring the AIDS epidemic, being played by Iran to get Carter defeated, lying to Congress, using astrology to make decisions, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.
FJ was easyget, knowing about the phony phrase and that there is such a craft from a Modern Marvels episode.

Poor Maggie got sandbagged with a couple of tough DD's, and the Les Miserables one was a softball.

How did all the game details get up so quickly? Will this be a thing here now? I'm addicted to Mark's quickie syllabus of the game so I hope this routine continues. It's like reading the sports story after watching a game and finding things I didn't notice and confirming things I did.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: the Seven Ancient Wonders should be top of the list study material. Simple elimination means by the bottom row you've got at most 3 left to work with so it's not like "World Capitals" and you risk getting Kingstown.

Murders at the Rue Morgue. *twitch* That one hurt. On the flip side, I dredged Micah up from somewhere. (Admittedly, the category did most of the heavy lifting there.)

Nimitz here. Though I overlooked Reagan and Bush, I doubt it would've helped if I remembered them.

The game was in J! Archive (including the interviews), so I copied/pasted the recap over from our backend. (Almost how things used to be a decade ago.)

I'm not usually expecting it to be ready this early, but when I see it ready, I move it over.

You guys are the bomb! How you maintain the routine for season after season is impressive - the only routine I can maintain is my caffeine addiction! Even my two years as a J! fanboy are interrupted by many gaps. Thanks for all you do!

For FJ I had a coin flip between Teddy Roosevelt and Reagan and went with Roosevelt as he was known for enhancing the navy and had the big stick quote.
