I added S4 6/16/88: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6026
Ouch on why Stephen missed the UTOC.

Jimmie left with $100 and the fridge/freezer (+ box game) and oh yeah, one other thing, the title of J! champion. Or co-champion as the case is for him.

News $500 was relevant then and still relevant today.

Sports $400 has been “slightly” surpassed. Unfortunately, $500’s total has increased. $100 has probably not changed though, other than the location for Alex’s comment.

As an archivist one of the most annoying categories is CELEBRITY SPELLING as a misspelling by at least one player is a guarantee and typing upper case & hyphens is always awkward.

It had actually been surpassed plenty of times already by 1988. By Paavo Nurmi back in the 1920s and by a slew of Soviet gymnasts. Not sure what they were going for here, if they intended to ask for the American with the most medals or if they intended to ask for who had the most golds, which Spitz was at least tied for, but as written this clue is a glaring sign of poor research. The correct response for “who had the most Olympic medals in 1988 would be would be Larisa Latynina with 18.

Unless Rubin won every race she was in that day, Linda’s response at $200 was also correct.

Best I can tell, she was 2-for-2 that day, but there's not a whole heck of a lot about it.

DD3: It’s not 4th anymore.
WORLD CITIES $600’s place is no longer the largest. With appropriate wording it would make a reasonable FJ! clue with the expectation of a bad apostrophe “S” response.

And may not have been 4th then, either (from Perth's wiki page): "Perth is Australia's fourth-most-populous city, having overtaken Adelaide's population in 1984.[71]"

I filled in 2/1/96 to complete Bill Sloan’s run: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6032

He had an excellent stat line for his five games.

It’s the 28th of June and I have met my goal of at least 20 old games in the Archive this month. Time for a break and I’ll get more games in the second week of July. I think I’m down to only three complete regular games remaining and then it’s on to the dreaded partials of varying lengths.

Frank hit the last DD on clue 29 with only a $1,000 clue remaining. He had $2,700 to Eitan's $4,500 and Bill's $11,900. Barring a neg from Bill, his only chance of winning was to bet at least $2,250 and get the last clue. And he wagered $2,000, guaranteeing a lock for Bill as long as Bill stayed clam.

I triple-checked the audio DD and that is how the clue is written. If that clue makes sense to you then you understand "writerese" better than I do.

You had a typo in Pat Boone’s hometown.

Thanks for getting these in. Hate to hear your well is about to run dry.

Jacisonville to Jacksonville is easy. Thanks. No time machine to help with the collection of games. Still plenty of work to do though with incomplete games, S18, and tourneys.

On the flip side, I'm not sure I'm seeing where the difficulty is. It boils down to 'Name this singer ('Quarter to Three' starts playing)'

Makes perfect sense to me. Not sure what the problem is. Does this help?

In '78, he thought he'd give Bruce Springsteen a break & invited him [i.e. Bruce] onstage to join in [singing] the following: [song lyrics]

The clue: In '78, he thought he'd give Bruce Springsteen a break & invited him onstage to join in the following

My problem was interpreting it one way as Springsteen was the established artist and that "break" was a rest from performing and not career assistance.

That left me thinking: In 1978 [*] thought he would give Springsteen a rest from performing and invited Bruce onstage to join in the song that was played.

How is Springsteen getting a rest if he is invited onstage to play?

My other interpretation was [*] was famous years prior and received career resuscitation help from Springsteen.

That made the clue to me: In 1978 [*] thought he would give Springsteen a rest from performing & [Bruce] invited [*] onstage to join in the following

Thank you Volante and Opus for the help. And I just got off a one week's break from inputting games and it's as if I need another one already. :)

TV & MOVIE ROBOTS was fun although to me the $200 clue is much harder than the other four.

Eric earned his spot in the TOC & UTOC with a solid victory. He did not go out offering the chance for a tie like some champs did in game 5.

The $100 clue in US States is still correct.
