Thank you for having a place for box score, I came in here to ask if that could be added so I wouldn't have to remember to go to the J site while looking at the daily thread.

All the work done here really adds to watching the game, thank you again.

Amy was 3/3 on DDs. She was not going to lose with that happening.

The FJ! clue had me more lost like the challengers with "revolution" even though I was not digging it as an "object". So simple and reasonable, yet for the 4th time this week I took a miss. :roll:

Amy has matched James for wins. Money has a long way to go. For the fourth time no player has lost games 22-32 for a sweet spot in a streak.

I'll be honest, I racked my brain trying to think of any actual objects. I knew it was a lock and I knew I didn't know the answer so I went for something that'd be funny to write on Jeopardy. No harm, no foul, and now I have a meme to use lol

On J5 the airing I saw cut out around your incorrect response. Who did you guess for the Black Panther clue?

Give me Clark's response, or give me Cory's response.

I said "Bastille", apparently not thinking "ultimate" enough.

Thanks, I'll got with that and if it's someone different I'm sure a correction suggestion will pop up.

Archiving the game I was reminded that I took the neg-bait Clark did on the baseball player clue.

I guess "device" would've been too on the nose.

There was a baseball book I got when I was 11 or so that had all sorts of anecdotes, hilarious happenings, records and so on. One section was discussing players and ads which included the phrase "Zack Wheat caught 345 flies last year, Tanglefoot flypaper caught 10 million".

So much easier to remember that stuff at that age and I remember every tidbit from that book. Unfortunately one anecdote didn't give me enough info to be certain about a 500k question, but just enough to consider the risk.

He definitely said Boseman.

FJ was obvious in hindsight, but it just didn't come to me.

I once wrote an FJ that might have used this category name. "Of this man's 1859 death, Victor Hugo wrote "It is Washington killing Spartacus".

Sweepstakes alert: before tonight's Final, a voiceover by Sarah Whitcomb Foss announced an Alaska trip sweepstakes starting next week. Based on the fine print, it looks like it will run two weeks. Can't find anything about it on the official website just yet.

Why has FJ! just been ungodly obscure of late?

I wasn’t 100% confident but I got it right. I didn’t think either of the wrong questions were bad guesses.
