wasn't it just last game where the blind side was an answer in the first round and then moneyball in the DJ round? i don't think that just because hawaii is an answer they wouldn't ask about something in hawaii later in the same game—the state of hawaii vis-a-vis the USS arizona memorial seems less of a repeat than a movie based on a michael lewis bestseller about sports and an audiobook of another michael lewis bestseller about sports.MarkBarrett wrote:When I saw the FJ category I eliminated the Arizona from my precall because of the previous Hawaii clue.
for what it's worth, i went with the arizona too, but i was fully cognizant that the "day" in the quote wasn't about the day of the event memorialized, so i had really nothing to go on other than thinking (vaguely) there was a wall associated with the arizona. i know the vietnam memorial is just names (we're all up on our linsanity, right?), so it wasn't that one. 9/11 did not cross my mind but if it had, it would have seemed as good a shot as anything else.
is nobody else going to call you out on this faintly absurd and totally unverifiable claim? what grounds do you have for this speculation? i agree that the caspian was pretty easy, but "social media" is not a particularly unfamiliar phrase, and with "networks" in the clue, there aren't really any other possibilities. it wasn't easy, but neither was it hard.Patrick found none tonight and I'll guess he would have lost a bundle on the Media one. Any of the guys should have been able to solve the Caspian Sea one.
justin must be disappointed at being (essentially) tied after more or less dominating this game, but he's still the odds-on favorite tomorrow. i think he's a killer player, because he's got the complete package: buzzer, knowledge, DDs, wagering. if he wins, look out in the ToC. if brooks or patrick beats him... well, i'll be surprised, but i'll also be surprised if they advance in the ToC.
