Interesting game. They played ten innings in 2:34. The Cubs’ pitcher went the distance. The Braves let the relief pitcher bat with two out in the tenth.

The game featured six HOF players and another who became a HOF manager. The Braves had two other HOF players on their pitching staff.

Speaking of similar clues...um, looking back at the old games that were recently added, how exactly did this happen?

#57, aired 1984-11-27 1945 $300: Number of stars in U.S. flag raised over Iwo Jima
#56, aired 1984-11-26 NUMBER PLEASE $200: Number of stars on American flag raised at Iwo Jima

I guess their writing staff was pretty small back in 1984, and nobody bothered to double check for repeats....

I would not bet on that FJ! clue going 3/3 in 2020.

You can say that again. I've watched a lot of TCM in my day and I don't think I've ever come across The Big Country.

I doubt 1995 me gets it. He is a talking snowman and a tea salesman to me.

Ridiculous 7W by Len to cost himself a spot in the UToC and made his early exit from the ToC no surprise. Albina was the J! version of Charles Barkley with 5 rebounds.

I cannot figure out this incorrect response: https://drive.google.com/open?id=10JdNq ... oCH7I1JeRd

Help, please.

Thanks econgator for the help on the clue from the 9/18 game. I'll go with that unless something better comes up while marking it with uncertainty.

If that is what Len said it sure changes the play/movie, no matter the pairing (or tripling) and especially considering the time frame it takes place. :)

Marie’s FJ response struck me as particularly bad.

Albina's error on Television $800 is when it's nice to be on before the age of social media.

The writers should have found a way to word the clue to keep it to one or the other. As is, it's quite gettable just by throwing out a guess.

Nice game with 58R and only 1.5 TS clues plus 3/3 in the FJ! round.

for cheezguyty: how many games prior to this had a category with five photo clues?

This game welcomes Maty Monfort to the J! Archive (though I have a feeling TELEVISION for $300 will probably be the only time she'll ever get mentioned as a J! clue).

It's also Michael Buger's welcome to the J-Canon, as best as I can tell.

^Actually, Michael Burger has been mentioned already (see GAME SHOWS for $800, though his name might have been spelled wrong there):

Add Mark to the list of J! contestants sharing a name with a (for baseball fans) famous name.

Connected to the Orioles is this obit for Jeanne (I figure has to be her & even if not, still good reading) that I found when trying to figure out her Maryland place: https://www.baltimoresun.com/obituaries ... story.html

It looks like her in the obituary article. I bet she got a kick out of playing someone with that name.

I'm so old I used to go to games at Memorial Stadium (though unlike her, I didn't go when the stadium first opened).

Whether negbait, traps or asking for a player to miss these three (categories don't matter) did not surprise me when they had wrong responses:

The most obvious difference between African & Asian elephants is the size of these

This Egyptian president graduated from the military academy at Cairo in 1938

In medieval Russia, 1 altyn equaled 3 of these monetary units


SCIENTISTS on the far right looked weird for that category in column 6.

Yeah, I would hope that FJ! clue went 3/3.

Someone lost out on a ToC spot because Madeleine wouldacouldashoulda beat Gordon.

Only 2 TS though plenty of Ws.

What I did with the FJ! clue:
Spoiler
I would have written daisy in thinking "Fresh as a daisy" as trying to get some kind of aqua/eau flower got me nowhere. I was getting closer towards the end in thinking Latin things like that "natatorium" for a swimming place. Oh, I needed to be thinking elementary school days with teachers calling the facilities the lavatory.
Nice 4-day work for Gordon on the buzzer with 3 25s and a 29.

Bad wagering from both challengers.
