Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

This has been a rough few months for Cooperstown. Now it’s Hank Aaron. I saw him hit #701 in person. I was six years old.

Re: Wednesday, January 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm shocked that the wagering police have not put in an appearance on the board after today's FJ. Did I miss a memo declaring a moratorium on wager-related finger-wagging? Was my comment too tepid? I knew I should have scolded more! It's a good thing for poor Hannah that Brian got it right. Or mine...

Not quite every game.
Spoiler
There was no 400 in DJ on Super Jeopardy. For that matter, they played for points, not money.

Hard to be a negbait for Washington when it isn’t his picture.

I guessed Lewis Carroll for FJ. Being dead I guess it wouldn’t have been him in 1926.

... FJ: WECIB? Bamaman above had Reno. A person on Reddit had Denver & Cheyenne. There are ways to go wrong with it. The gold strike in 1848 led me to Sacramento. I was pretty sure Nevada joined during the Civil War so it had be those states. I know good and well Carson City is the capital of Nevad...

Re: Wednesday, January 20, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I quickly wrote down Sacramento and Reno and put my pen down. I am an idiot.

I was hoping Aunt Esther would pop up but if they didn’t know Good Times I guess they wouldn’t have known her.

I guess Hannah was content winning $2,000.

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ was a welcome WAG as my thought process was: "They're clearly looking for a motel/hotel chain with an amount in the name. Motel 6? Were rooms really that cheap back then? I got nothing better so let's try it..." To echo Mark's point, you gotta know your 7 Wonders guys. I knew he was doomed when ...

Re: Tuesday, January 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I started with Dollar Rent-a-Car but I couldn’t imagine a $1 a day car rental, even in 1962. Nightly rate led me to hotels so I checked in with the right company. I then thought about Super 8 but Motel 6 is better known so that was it. I had to consider Days Inn for a second. When they were founded...

I didn’t have a problem with taking the full name of the woman in the song as I can understand a player saying it. Kahn should have been BMSed but whatever. If anyone fully understands the BMS policy you are smarter than me. I wouldn’t have tossed out $7,598 just for a joke. I started with Dollar Re...

Can’t be 6/26. The 6/25 game is partially in and the winner from that game isn’t in this one.

The event is the uneven bars. So “uneven parallel bars” is also incorrect.

Re: Monday, January 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

First a FJ, now a DD that requires knowledge about The Crown . I guess I know where I'm putting some extra effort... Never seen The Crown and got both, although the one today was a bit of a guess. Never seen the movie in today’s FJ but breakfast foods at a fancy NYC store leaves no other options.

Re: Season 37 Preemptions

I think it aired as scheduled in Birmingham four years ago. The swearing in is at 11:00 here so it should be done by then.

Alex explained the rules in depth at the start of the episode so it could well be earlier in the season.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

But if Merv sent out reruns in June 1985 starting with E1, wouldn’t games originally aired in November have rerun in August?

I graduated high school in June 1985 and while I did watch Jeopardy I alas didn’t keep notes. Maybe more from “June 1985” will pop up and we can solve the mystery.

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I heard Cathy Pentecost. The FJ category was the Bible and Alex made a joke how she might have an advantage so that might be her name.
