Proud to have gotten this one, but needed to brainstorm Southern rockers to get there. (Tom Petty and I share a birthday.)

Also, "by a Southern rocker and his band", please.

Jeff was correct on the DDs where he went all in and missed the one where he had a lesser wager. It worked out well for him overall in being 50% on wagering clues.

The FJ! category had me try some precalls of Beatles, Eagles, Tapestry and The Wall. The FJ! clue was more history than music.

The FJ! clue was a triple fail for me as Fire When Ready is not an album, the quote directed at Gridley is slightly different and the war is the Spanish-American War. :oops:

Just as the music ended I put together the right quote, would have had the right war and it would not have mattered that I did not recognize it as an album title along with having no idea about the artist. I just needed to work a little quicker, though like Jeff I had a detour to the quote from Bunker Hill.

Whitney had a very nice first segment. After that... Andrew did himself no favors with clue selection as he improved on the buzzer as the game moved along and did not play a DD.

Yesterday may still turn to be a game in the archive without a label, but it's not guaranteed yet with Jeff defending his title.

I had never heard of the album, but could only think of one quote by a Civil War admiral, so.....

Even leaving out the "and his band", for some reason I don't think of Tom Petty when I think of Southern rock.

Glad someone else agrees. Just because he was born in Florida doesn't make him a Southern rocker. :x
Did know the album, tho :mrgreen:

Alas, a hubristic FJ bet left him with a conventional winning total.
I'm smart and I want respect.

Since when is Tom Petty "southern rock"? Neither AllMusic nor Wikipedia categorizes him as such.

The clue is “southern rocker”, or a rock musician born in the south. Which is different than “southern rock”.

I got this more from the historical context, and the quote rang a bell as an album title. Some hesitancy on whether the album title was the first half of the phrase or the full phrase, but went with the right answer.

I'd really like to see this season's FJ get % compared with previous ones. It feels off

For whatever reason, my pen immediately wrote "heart of gold"...I have no idea why. I spent about 27 seconds thinking before writing "damn" and time ran out.

only if the superchamps are removed as that might skew the numbers.

I wouldn't even do that. I imagine there would be a lot of 1/3 games among this season's famous runs.
