Re: Monday, September 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I found this FJ confusingly written too. I first thought they were looking for names of African countries, then figured they were looking for who controlled what were colonies at the time. Once I got that, the answer was automatic.

Re: Friday, September 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As a golf fan, I knew Phil was around 50, and my recollection of the news about his participation in his first Senior event a few weeks ago cemented it. My only doubt was whether he was in the top 100, but of course his earnings are from endorsements, not winnings these days.

I played FJ off the Clue of the Day and said Thailand, then googled the book title and came up with India. Very relieved when I actually watched the show.

Re: Monday, September 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was anyone else thrown for a loop on "It's where the sub-zero goes"? Yes. I had never heard of a sub-zero (or, Sub-Zero, as it is apparently a brand name) before. I thought maybe it was one of those deep-freezers, so I put it in the garage. Ideal range for a freezer is around 0 to 5F, so I don't kn...

Did I miss something with allowing the Sirius XM Radio answer while not in the form of a question?
After just saying "Sirius XM", she kinda mumbled, "Is it Sirius XM?"
OK. I thought I heard her sort of stutter “Si-Sirius XM Radio” the second time.

Since I had not heard of the two artists in the clue, I suspected we were not looking at one of the more famous Spanish artists like Picasso, Dali or Miro, which quickly took me to Mexico and the right answer.

Re: Monday, September 10, 1984 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was struck by the gasps from the audience at wrong answers.

Were the game segments shorter? Alex seemed to read the questions at a pretty snappy pace, but there were still a lot of clues left on the board.

Alex will be part of an exclusive interview with GMA on Tuesday morning.
Actually, I think the interview was this morning. I caught the end of it accidentally, as I am not a GMA viewer. Maybe there is a Part 2 tomorrow?

Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

Don’t think I had it, although I had some weird mild symptoms back in late February. Do not know anyone confirmed to have it or to have died. I live in Connecticut and have been following the general mask wearing etiquette seen here, which is wearing a mask 100% of the time in public indoor spaces (...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 6/11/2020

$8800, I think. Missed thane, purl, the archangel, gorilla, tumbrel and two of the pun clues. Might have gotten thane if I paid closer attention to the category.

Got St. Elmo, did not get parliamentarian.

Got FJ.

All they needed to do is watch the movie...and just the first 10 minutes.
