NHO the musical. I've barely heard of the Bear, I went with Teddy Ruxpin. I think my little sis had one.
Screwed up the WAR with "against".
Looking forward to the semis with some clear favorites to root for.

Had heard of the Broadway play but best I could come up with was "Hello Evan ..... somebody". One word out of three doesn't cut it, even though I had the right play.
Most of the others were pretty straightforward, though "Domesday" is actually pronounced "Doomsday" and that's what I would have perhaps startled people with -- comes from watching too many BBC histories and docudramas on BBCA and PBS.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I was spoiled on Wednesday's clue (Jeopardy's Twitter account strikes again!). I've heard of the musical and possibly would have gotten it, but I can't be sure since Broadway isn't a strength of mine.
I can never keep Spanish musician pavlovs Casals and Segovia straight, but I won the coin flip there. Looking it up now, I guess remembering C=Cello=Casals would be the best way to keep them straight.
I'm not into sabermetrics or advanced stats in any of the sports I follow, but WAR was an easy one based on my time scouring baseball-reference.com.

Instagets M, W, Th, F.
Made the "A1" misteak on Tuesday.
If I didn't get BB = "base on balls" in three seconds, I wasn't getting WAR if you gave me an hour. Why the writers would think teens would be this familiar with baseball arcana is beyond me.
I would prefer not to.

No idea how I knew Casals.
Dear Evan Hansen was a NHOI.
No guess Thursday
No tape delays for me, which is good since I had to binge watch.

Not really sure about Tuesday's FJ. I forgot that show was preempted, so I read it for the first time here in the poll and blurted out "A1" without much thought. I think with 30 seconds I may have remembered C1, but hard to say.
I messed up the perfecto by saying "wins against replacement"; while I'm not an expert on sabermetrics, I know enough not to have made that mistake.
Got J! at the usual time (4:30 Central).
