Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

It’s a jboard trifecta of bomtr, me and Reddpen atop A Continental but slam lurks in 4th and might move higher after his match with me today.

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Best in Show for the 2021 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show: Pekingese named Wasabi I was getting ready to chide you for adding a g to the name but did due diligence beforehand. TIL that both Pekingese and Pekinese are accepted names for the breed, and that your spelling is more common in this the U...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

I thought she did an excellent job. Her energy and enthusiasm matched Buzzy’s. Her knowledge base might not be as good as his, but she might be more relatable. As a younger female host, she might also expand the franchise beyond people such as yours truly. The only thing that was at all offputting w...

Between LL and here, I am shocked at how many people didn’t recognize Lost Horizon as the source of Shang-ri-la. It took me a moment to put FJ together, as I thought that the Latin for key was caius because of the college.

Re: Thursday, June 10, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Oy^3. This was a 3-car pileup of Subarus, to steal from AP. FJ was an exercise for me of recalling who the most recent hires and retirements/deaths were. Would I have had time to write my answer down before Think time expired? Uncertain at best.

What the heck was supposed to help you to get to Sopranos? I looked it up after the fact, and the only character name in the titles is someone who never appears and is never mentioned again. Apparently, there are well known Pine Barrens here in NJ (I'm right near the areas represented on the show) ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

One day I'll stop referring to it as the 'Diary of Nat Turner' ...no idea why I can't shake that one loose. This. Precisely this. Also convinced myself that de Quincy wrote diary of an English opium eater and totally ignored the St Augustine link. Fortunately my opponent ProctorK had more confidenc...

Re: Tuesday, June 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Dixiecrats a TS?? Oy redux. For the last DJ clue, I said viticulture rather than wine since they are growing grapes in the photo. Judges? For FJ, like Mark I never had a second thought and was lucky that my thought was correct. I knew that coffee drinking had gone way up in the war so that made sens...

Nathan Hale a TS? Oy!! Owen was understandable if Owen Glendower wasn’t familiar to them. FJ was a clean whiff: knew exactly what they were clueing but didn’t recall who Olivier had married.

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

Gotta say, I'm baffled that over half the league doesn't know what a first down signal looks like. Sadly, combined with my horrendous defense this season, that turned my six-pack into a 9(6)-9(5) tie. In my case, it was an RTFQ: I thought it said that the ref’s arm was perpendicular to the ground, ...

The xylo root was known to me from my years working for a plant physiologist, but I get that it could play hard. I thought the FJ clue was pretty straightforward: giant underwater leads me directly to Leviathan. I didn’t realize that it was a 17th C work, but I knew it was a work of The Enlightenmen...

Was Julia the most awful contestant! Has she never seen the show before? Where did she get the idea that we she was supposed to interject after every answer and comment on her own Answers by saying "nice" or something equally banal? We viewers need to demand that they screen out people like that. h...

Grace reminded me of Survivor winner Sarah Lacina and Julia was like an SNL player parodying Jennifer Love Hewitt. While watching tonight, I realized that John was a remind alike of David Byrne. https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/peel/images/b/b1/11574155_1_x.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20170316220942 ...

Re: Wednesday, June 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The excitement of the bsck-and-forth partially offset the fact that it wasn’t the best display of J! acumen tonight. I wonder if anyone was helped to the FJ! answer by thinking of the meaning of the word tribunal.

Perhaps because of the juxtaposition of episodes, but Mayim reminded me of a female Buzzy: witty, energetic and in control of the facts. I’m still kicking myself for missing FJ. I went through all the cable channels I could think of looking for one with an Italian word for a name. The best I could c...

I deleted a reported post because comments were made about Friday's game in the Thursday thread.
Weirdly, jboard flagged your post as a reply to me, but that makes no sense as I hadn’t seen Friday’s show.

Re: Thursday, May 27, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sam certainly came out firing tonight. Jennifer played her usual solid game but couldn’t pull that second DD. Still, her FJ get keeps her competitive. Tomorrow will be an interesting matchup — I can’t wait. Easy FJ tonight.
