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

The clue was a puzzling instaget. Is it really that easy? Yes, as there was no doubt for winning 5 in combo with always qualifying. There was no other country that could even sniff that distinction as I knew France only had 2 and could not forget the crying over Italy not making it last go-around. ...

Waitress was hard not to know about as a J! viewer in the NYC area. My pre-guess was Hairspray.
Yes, I think we viewers in the NY TV broadcast area have a decided advantage on at least recent Broadway questions, simply from the amount of advertising we see.

After archiving the game and listening multiple times, I'm not sure about how to present Krystina's incorrect response for the DAY JOB VU $2000 clue. I apologize in advance if I butcher this. The actual pronunciation is "va we(nasal n) sa". In the second syllable, the l has a line through it which ...

Regarding FJ, I remembered this previous reference. I wonder if the players today were given any advice regarding specificity.
I was wondering the same thing. Would a last name only be acceptable? Any advice on specifying a first name could be seen as a clue itself.

Thought Sect. of State was obvious. I went hunting for the second. AG never occurred to me, although it probably would have if I had more time to think about it. Went with Education based on the current office holder. Similarly for me, State was an instaget and I struggled to find the second one. I...

Swanson is part of the Campbell Soup company. Only the broth part. Pinnacle owns the TV dinner part. We are both right. Campbell bought Swanson in 1955 and hence owned it for the Heyday of the TV dinner business. They spun Swanson off in 1998 and the new company took the name Pinnacle. I am also co...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For FJ #2 I had Napoleon and King George III. I blame the Bugs Bunny where he "teaches" his nephew Clyde about American History for making me think George III was short. :D KGIII died in 1820. Don't know about Napoleon, but I think he came later. Nope. Battle of Waterloo in 1815 ended his career. I...

Did not know My Little Pony, Yeats, and the dollar clues. Made the same mistake as Lisa on Dylan Thomas. Lucky guess on Shostakovich. Did not need the rebound on Vukovar.
