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 (...

Guessed John Quincy Adams Tuesday, just to have something.

Pretty sure I saw most episodes, but missed a few here and there.

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.

Re: TPH poll for week of 6/1

Missed tax, the math and the curlers. Likely would have missed the impeachment one if not for the events last year.

Got SFR from the first part of the clue, without the Crusoe connection.

Cheese and geese do not rhyme. Finger and singer should rhyme, but singer is often pronounced in a way that they do not.

Re: Tuesday, May 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex said something to the effect that if you didn't come up with the 1719 novel first, you were going to struggle on FJ. However, I didn't read the 1719 portion of the clue until after I had gotten SFR based on the pastor, wife, and four sons. Me too, basically “name an adventure novel about a fam...

Re: Fun with Fox's "Mental Samurai"

The Grand Championship reaired on May 14. Still can't believe George Washington's facing on the quarter tripped up three contestants. :shock: Agree! I had not seen this last year. I was interested, given all the complaints about the time lost with the chair swinging around, that they would end up w...

Re: FJ! for the 5/4/20 week

Only watched Monday's show, although I did happen to see FJ on Wednesday.

Answered Florence Griffith Joyner to put something down, do not remember seeing the show the first time it aired.

I am aware of the upcoming new shows (from reading the board).

This was a nice blast from the past. My son, who watches with me most nights, commented that the pace seemed quicker than it is today. Any thoughts?
We thought so too. Alex in particular seemed to read the questions very rapidly.

Went the wrong way Monday on a coin flip between McClellan and Meade
No guess Thursday, I was trying to think of a brokerage firm
Took a while to parse the Friday clue, but then the answer hit me.

Re: Monday, April 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The correct pronunciation of "Concord" (with a schwa in the second syllable) is a homophone for "conquered". Lauren's pronunciation is not, but the judges have accepted much more egregious things lately so I shrug my shoulders and move on with life. Not trying to devolve into one of those endless p...

I guess the key here was knowing that Prospero was a deposed Duke. That's a deep cut, congrats to anyone who pulls it.
Especially if you knew he was a deposed Duke of Milan. Still, the only straw to grasp onto here, if you knew it.
