Re: Friday, March 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That goalie clue was bad. 1) They asked for a player, not a position and 2) not that we'll ever know, but I wonder if they would have taken "keeper" or "goalkeeper". The book's title uses "Goalie". I almost never hear them called a goalie. I wouldn't have taken goalkeeper. The clue specifically ask...

Re: Wednesday, February 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Easiest FJ in recent memory. I might be biased as a sports fan though. Nice to have an instaget in what has been my worst FJ month of the year. February has been kicking my butt :evil:

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), January 29, 2020

That definitely felt easier than normal. I'm generally around 32 every year and feel like I easily passed that. Although I'll have to wait to review the questions and answers to know for sure. Edit: 36! I believe that's my best ever, and totally choked under the pressure on a handful I should have ...

Re: FJs for the 1/6/20 week

Yay, my first perfect FJ week in over a year :mrgreen:

It was quite the trip watching the Goat episodes first, then the regular ones, each night. Felt like a horse stepping down in class. Went from feeling dumb to feeling smart lol.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I've tried to memorize William Henry Harrison a billion times. But it's always "I know there was a president who only reigned for a month. I think it was a month. Maybe two months? A day? A year and a half? 47 days?" and my thought process just completely unravels from there before I can even get h...

Do you not know anything about any of them? Not the names, but maybe what their famous for? Hint, look at the years. Jefferson 1801-1809 (3rd President) Monroe 1817-1825 (5th President) William Henry Harrison 1841 (9th President) Lincoln 1861-1865 (16th President) Garfield 1881 (20th President) McK...

Re: Thursday, November 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I suspect that contestant Alex is a ham radio operator, because her unusual bet of 1312, which host Alex even called unusual, left her with $88 after missing the extremely easy answer of Buenos Aires. 8 8 is the ham radio code for love and kisses, and especially affectionate way of signing off.

This was another garbage clue on a hyper-obscure fact. Why are we getting Liederkranz'd this week?
Hardly. One of the easier FJs on the year. Triple stumper was certainly surprising, but Vichy France is in no way obscure.

Re: Friday, September 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I considered Hillary to be from Illinois, but when I had counted back to Reagan, I assumed I did something wrong. Put down 2004, just to have something. First miss of the season. Just as an FYI, the time before 2016 was 1944 (FDR and Dewey both from NY). I went with 1944. For some idiotic reason, I...

I hope his mother (?) is happy that he referenced her birthday (?) (was he going with June 1, 1943? I assume so, maybe it was random) because he cost himself over $19,000 with the shout-out. This would be less unfortunate if he hadn't literally wagered almost exactly $6,143 a few clues earlier, whe...

Awesome FJ category. Took me longer than I'd like to get there, but made it with plenty of time to spare. First instinct was Destroyer by Kiss, then moved to Rumours, before clueing into Hotel California and was confident from there.

Figured if the clue wanted an American city, then the clue would have been American Cities, and not North American. After quickly dismissing countries south of USA, went to Canada and clued into Expo 67 and was home free.

The FJ! clue was a head-scratching immediate no-doubter as I almost could not believe J! was asking something that would be better placed in the June tournament. Any misses that get posted here will be fascinating exercises in over-thinking. (Yes, I know that I am now setting myself up to miss tomo...

Ran Triple O. Bridgeport, Connecticut rings not the faintest of bells for me, and it cost me the run because I bit on the Hartford negbait. I was stunned when that was wrong, since I literally couldn't think of another city in CT. Also missed only Hermes in Hats. All but brownstone (NHOI) in Vocabu...
