This is where all of the games are discussed.
Knew two of the FJs, the other three had pretty straightforward TOM.
Wonder if I would have had pronunciation issues with the Lisbon clue. We spent some time in Portugal several years ago, and were told that an "s" at the end of a syllable was pronounced "sh." So we crossed the Tah-goosh river on the Vashco de Gama Bridge on our way to Cash-caish. Not the Tagus River, the Vasco Bridge, or the village of Cascais. It took no longer than it takes a tourist to learn to pronounce Worcester as "Wooster".
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.
Of all the danged things to prevent a superfecto week! I had to go neg on the old Sunday School story. If I had had a few more seconds I'm pretty sure I would have come up with Rachel and Leah, just not in 3 seconds.
Meanwhile, this looks like an all-time record for 5-for-5 weeks on this poll. Way to go, team!
Forgive me for the very late response. I'm way behind on watching the DVR. But I had to brag on my first 5/5 since discovering these boards.
Monday was a bit of an educated and lucky guess. I'm sure I've heard the Queensbury rules mentioned in some bit of TV back in my youth.
Tues I tried to get it wrong by going with Jefferson, but more current pop culture helped me recall that he was the first Sec of State.
Wed seemed very easy to work out from history. I again tried to err by figuring out who the US Pres was (FDR, of course), but then I took another look at the category. Quarrel? 1930s? Gotta be the lead in to WWII. Faraway country? Nothing in Europe was far away from that little quarrel. So an out of touch leader. That just screamed Mr. Peace-In-Our-Time to me.
Thurs was again working out the TOM, and not direct knowledge of the literature. International = not US. Cowboys? Makes the Western Hemisphere portion irrelevant - gotta be Canada or Argentina, since it's not USA. Spanish sounding name - lets go with Argentina.
Fri - Snoopy to the rescue. A quick word count on the fingers and start writing. (Or, in my case, putting the breakfast dishes back in the kitchen while the think music plays.)
Bummed a bit on the Bible clue. In the moment I said Rachael and Hannah, knowing full well that Leah was Rachael's sister. Should have got that one right.
