Ken will be hosting again next week and there will be another Overheard video clip.

LSV has no chance for 61 right today with only 28 clues played in the DJ! round.

Amy's knowledge gap of the day? The Lindbergh baby kidnapper. :(

Sean kept DD2 and DD3 away from Amy. The reward? Minus 2000 and plus 590.

The FJ! category gave me an insta-precall where I had Silent Spring on my paper before Ken finished reading the category.

The FJ! clue had me match Amy except I included the first name.

Yesterday there were a couple of clues in the first two rounds that were in the area of the FJ! clue response. Today, a contestant had to be prompted to give a first name and that clue was very indirectly part of today's FJ! clue response.

7 figures for Amy. A great run. She'll have to get by people next week already posting about their upcoming appearances.

Congrats to Sean for throwing away $1000 for absolutely no reason.

Anybody and everybody can blank on any clue, but I really shouldn't comment on those two incorrect FJ responses.

As good as anything I would've come up with. I'm not sure I've even HEARD of Heyerdahl.

Ken can catch you up.

I see Churchill and Hemingway as perfectly defensible wrong answers. "1948" says to me "the end of WWII plus the amount of time that it takes to write a book". Both writers were actively publishing during the period (although Hemingway published no nonfiction in the 1940s) and both were figures involved in WWII. Churchill published the first volume of his history of the war in '48. Norwegian independence may point to Norway's occupation by German forces during the war. "A vast blue sea" can be seen as an allusion to the English Channel and D-Day. Churchill was involved in D-Day's Operation Overlord from a planning perspective and Hemingway was in its seventh wave on Omaha Beach.

Trygve Lie here. Oh well. Had I been spotted the work or the author I could've pulled it, but neither ever crossed my mind. Just guessed at a famous Norwegian with worldwide interests, and was thinking the phrases given may have been something to do with the founding of the UN.

I was wondering if Heyerdahl might be one of those people better known to an, um, older generation.

I knew who it was but butchered his name too badly to get credit. Put down Heydal.

Minor quibble on Monaco being surrounded by France. It also borders the Mediterranean.

28 right.

Lach Trash: Cher, Bruno Hauptmann

FJ: :mrgreen: (guessed Thor Heyerdahl incorrectly back on the December 30 FJ (Explorers- Robert Falcon Scott), but success today).

Congrats on the million, Amy!

Somehow I've known the story of Kon-Tiki since I was a child, yet never matched a person's name to it. Thor Heyerdahl is definitely a Hawley-Smoot name.

I don't see what's so horrible about guessing Hemingway. He did write some nonfiction after all.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

As one of the board's millennials, this was still an insta-get. It's a story people of all generations should know, if not from the book, then from the films. One was made as recently as 2012.
