SHARK TANK used Robert, Kevin, Lori and Daymond with Mark mentioned in the J!6. I guess that leaves Barbara unseen in the $200 clue that was not played and a case of a video category not completed. STATEN ISLAND had a couple of Clue Crew clues, so this was bound to not be a 61-clue game.

Sean received the benefit of the doubt on his responses for the National Zoo doctor and list of recordings while there was no saving him on calling the actor famous for playing Harold Hill, Prince. It was an easy rebound for Marcy from Iowa. That same category, THE HAROLD wanted the composer of “Over the Rainbow” & “Stormy Weather” and I called the triple stumper as I picked up the trash.

Alex set up John for the win with his remarks to open the DJ! Round: It looks like a tough road for (at minus 2000) John.

The FJ! clue gave me a way to work around my West Coast deficiency for things NY/NYC and colors on flags by offering a sports path. Mets & Knicks? Yes, I’ve seen their uniforms more than once. For the Dutch flag portion I pictured the team in the World Cup (Well, when they qualify – Zing!) and everything checked out to have the right three colors.

If the FJ! clue had shown the NYC flag and asked me to identify it that would have greatly increased the difficulty while it’s possible I could have got lucky on it.

John did not have a great opening to his game while closing with 3/3 on the big clues is what matters.

Glad I caught the significance of "Dutch" before the 30 seconds were up.

Coryat: $28,800
41 R/3 W
DD: 3/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: Jonathan Swift (DD), Social Security Act, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Arctic Ocean

Great comeback by John. That Washington Pot category really seemed to wake him up and give him confidence. Good run, Sean. Hope you'll stick around.

Pretty elementary FJ! for us sports fans.

When Sean misses FJ, he wins. When he gets FJ, he loses. Odd correlation.

I got orange from the Dutch, blue from the Mets, and picked white as a neutral color to fill them out. (Most sports teams have a pale/neutral color for the home or away jerseys, depending on the sport.)

The particular shows for a week are randomized by Standards and Practices (an independent third party) on the morning of the tape day, without regard to what contestants appear on which particular show.

Her wager prevented her from winning, even if she did put down the correct answer.

From the Managment: PanthersFan1's post has been removed because of its abusive nature. They have been banned for a month. I have edited the posts that quoted him or her to remove those comments.

I knew orange and blue but put red for the third color for some reason.

Sean should have been negged for however he pronounced veternarian.

Marcy should have headed to the bottom of the sun category with time running out, She only got to three clues and was still $100 out of first.

I didn't see whatever was posted, but thanks to the boss for cleaning it up.

Coryat: $30,000

DD: 3/3

FJ: :mrgreen:

Tricky on the vocab category: It would be easy to say "order" for Sagan's description of the opposite of chaos ("Cosmos" seems almost too obvious), and "medicine," Marcy's response for a word meaning a cure from the latin "medeor," is entirely understandable.

Good game and a nice comeback by John.

This game is a draw for the Strong Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "big." --Bob

The mods are a pretty mellow bunch so I can't imagine what was said to earn an instant month ban...yikes.

I need to hear a clip of him saying 'veterinarian' because that seemed pretty damn generous.

I spent the entire last minute of that round screaming at the TV. When she came up $100 short of the lead I just shook my head. I also wnted to see some larger DD wagers, so this wasn't a banner day for me :lol:

Instaget FJ...but this is the part where I admit that while I'm sure I've seen NYC's flag literally thousands of times on buildings, in news stories, etc., I could not have told you its colors. The Knicks and the inferior baseball team's colors? Easy money. The poll question practically writes itself ("The teams colors were more helpful..."). I wonder if dhk's knowledge of flags extends to cities...


...OK not really. Would the team colors have been helpful to you at all?

Wow, so much TOM in that FJ and I could still do no better than a wild guess. Had blue and then re-reread the clue to confirm that I needed all three colors and threw in the towel.

Fascinating FJ in that there were so many potential paths to the answer (Dutch flag, New York flag, Knicks, Mets). I took the Knicks path myself.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

Sean gets questionable thumbs ups from the judges on "veterinarian" and "discography". I thought they were also going to allow "disability". :roll:

Is it just me, or is it possible that John has a brother named James who has appeared on The Chase and 500
Questions? He sure looks and smiles the same way.

Odd that the “coverts” (instead of “converts”) typo slipped through; I can’t remember the last time I saw a misspelling in a clue.

Also, I would assume that they were more lenient on pronunciation considering the “actuarially” struggles from Monday.
