Well, I had some free time at work tonight, and remarkably archive.org is poking through the firewall, so I was able to get the video.
Tuesday, May 14, 1991, College Championship semi #2, David Morris vs. Kelly Barbour vs. Tim Lakin.
There were some tough spots in this board. I personally had trouble with WAR IN THE GULF, with clues I might have picked up at the time, but which are certainly footnotes anymore. I will pick the $300 clue as clue of the game, simply for being a fun fact:
Said one way it means "clash"; the way Bush says it, it means "a shoeshine boy"
What is Saddam? I did the best I could at transcribing the phonetics of how Alex differentiated them. I personally always say "Suh-dom", which probably doesn't mean anything.
The $400 clue in that category is a fact new to the J-Canon, with a name that is new as a response. Flashcards? Sure, why not? This game also has the Archive's first mention of Tennyson's play about Robin Hood, "The Foresters", in a clue, with a response that is otherwise quite common.
Oh, and speaking of pronouncing things 2 different ways, I also had to demonstrate the varying pronunciations in STATE CAPITALS for $200 (J!), for obvious reasons.
Some unusual capitalization in ABBREVIATIONS for $500:
David forgot the category in FAMOUS WOMEN for $400 (DJ!). He'd been unsuccessfully DD hunting the whole game, but by this point Tim was pulling away.
Is there another archive.org game recently uploaded? [Yes, one page back.] I doubt I'll get to it tonight, but I've got three more overnights coming up, so there's a good chance for later in the week. I hope I'm not stepping on anything Mark has planned.
