Re: Thursday, January 27, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought the clue pointed to a painter in that era, but I thought it couldn’t be Stuart since he wasn’t Irish. Blanked on anyone else.

Re: Wednesday, January 19, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Having seen all the movies, this was an instaget, and I think it still would have been even if I had only seen The Paper Chase. Conversely, my girlfriend, who had seen Clueless, Legally Blonde, the sequel and the musical had no idea because she had no idea what The Paper Chase was about.

You can look up an address on the USPS website and find out whether it has rural or City Delivery. If the carrier route number starts with c, the address has City Delivery and a house mounted box. If the carrier route starts with r, it's rural delivery with a curbside mailbox. This is not true. Rig...

Re: Fun with ABC's "The Chase" [Spoilers]

Did Labett's questions seem much easier than Holzhauer's to anyone else???? Though that being said I think the show works the best with the Beast as Chaser just like the GSN series. I thought his questions seemed very easy, easier than the ones the challengers had. I do think the show seems designe...

Former champ Tom Nichols in The Atlantic: It Might Be Time to Retire 'Jeopardy' I pretty much agree with what he's written. Stephen Curry has mastered the 3-pointer and inspired a generation to play the game differently. Interest is at an all-time high. Let us cancel basketball. It's the only way. ...

Re: Tuesday, January 11, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For me, the Final was as simple as, "What Broadway role is Sarah Jessica Parker famed for?" I didn't even think of what the Merman character could have been until after the 30 seconds was up. I did briefly start considering whether the correct response could have been "Dolly". M...

After some thought, I came up with Seaside Heights (evidently a "township" or a borough" of less than 3000) for affluent NJ suburb. Don't remember ever hearing of Short Hills. Wikipedia says it's the richest town in America, so maybe that's why. I did think of Leonia, NJ as another n...

Anybody and everybody can blank on any clue, but I really shouldn't comment on those two incorrect FJ responses. As good as anything I would've come up with. I'm not sure I've even HEARD of Heyerdahl. I was wondering if Heyerdahl might be one of those people better known to an, um, older generation.

Re: Thursday, January 6, 2022 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue was not for me. From pyramids to Cleopatra's Needle I was close to going with a blank page until I wrote Leaning Tower of Pisa to have something. The logic to get to the right place was not going to happen for me even though it's a simple enough path. This is not my bailiwick either, b...

I see no weakness in Amy's game that lends itself to exploitation. Phylum was a good get and is not a remnant of Civil Engineering or Computer Science.

Have definitely seen some documentaries on Florence and Florentine art that mention the flood and have some footage of the flood waters, so this was an instaget.

Agree with more money for second and third place. Wouldn’t mind seeing a few celebrity episodes in prime time. Don’t think they need to change anything else.

+2 for Starr. First comic strip female reporter who came to mind.
