Disappointed we don't have the clues from that BUSY BEAVERS category. I wonder if it was the animals or something else?

^ I seem to remember that the results of this game were posted when Tom was in the UTOC 13 years ago (that long already?). How much did he win, and I believe we have the FJ for that game in the FJ! clues archive that came up a few years ago.

Yes, the FJ! clue is in the collected FJ! clues:

567 1991‑03‑25 AMERICAN PLAYWRIGHTS HE WAS 61 WHEN HE MADE HIS ACTING DEBUT IN 1 OF HIS OWN PLAYS, "SMALL CRAFT WARNINGS", IN 1972 WHO WAS TENNESSEE WILLIAMS?

I have the results from my scoresheet:

Tom: 8900-499=8401 (2x = $23,602)
Michael: 4200+4000=8200
Joy: 3100+3100=6200

My preference is not to add a bunch of fake clues just to include the FJ! round when I don't even have the player responses either.

^ Thanks once again. :D And I do understand not wanting to include the FJ! in the archive what with what little is available there.

I know I wouldn't be. Ouch. How did he react when Alex told him the correct response? I mean, to me, this DD is dead obvious and only the bewitching power of the lights could keep me from getting it. If Jim feels the same way, this miss has to be particularly painful. But if he just didn't happen to know this one, maybe the pain has turned into wistfulness by now.

Alex was shown giving the correct response with no shot of Jim. Only Jim can answer the why of his guess. It cost him the match that much is certain and I am not sure that 28 years is enough time to fully erase the memory.
