Re: Wednesday, April 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Is there a curse on players that try to copy James and do the all-in push? I think I've seen several players proceed to lose after that but it could be my selective memory.

Re: Friday, April 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

44R. I missed Final Jeopardy with Horace Greeley which was way off. I forgot that Hearst and Pulitzer had a rivalry. Only one step away from making the connection chain of yellow journalism-->Spanish-American war-->late 1800s/early 1900s-->Hearst-->Pulitzer. I hope the surviving members of Rush are ...

Those of you who recognized the Lady's name to be certain of your correct response then you need to get on the show.
Sounds good to me. Hemingway is one of my favorites though. I missed the canonical Mary Quant mini-skirt clue.

Re: Thursday, March 26, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

4/4 on big clues. I think sheriff was neg-bait. A 7-letter word for someone in charge of public safety, like in the old west. At least it helped me learn the difference between Marshal and Marshall. I said barbarians for the Daily Double. Judges? I don't think so. Barbarian can mean a person from th...

Re: Tuesday, March 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rorschach seemed way too obscure for anyone else save for the comic nerds. I got him, and I've never read the comic books or seen the movie (or the TV show, which Volante's post made me aware of). I had a vague recollection that Watchmen had a character named "Rorschach" whose face (actually a mask...

Re: Our Current Situation

I wish I'd taken the hint when I saw that Jeff Bezos sold 4 billion dollars worth of Amazon stock over a two-week period ending February 6th. That is a level of insider trading unprecedented in all history. Instead of taking the cue to sell everything, I invested $14,000 on February 7th. Bezos stoc...

Boo David Muir. Boo. Bring back Trebek. This pre-emption is pointless. We already know about COVID-19. 8+ hours at work with people non-stop talking about it, albeit mostly conspiracy theories. All over the news on every media. Radio interruptions and public service announcements all day. Every comp...

I missed a lot of clues. I know the Titanic was in 1912 but I briefly and inconveniently forgot that when the San Francisco Fire clue came up. Canine threw me off for Newfoundland. I knew which one of Newfoundland & Labrador was the island but I tried to think of a different Canadian island. Messeng...

I said Hong Kong and should have paid more attention to the category. I missed "ABC" with "American Broadcasting Corporation" instead of company. I watched the show on ABC... 14/28 first round. 24/29 second round. I'm assuming Matlin counts since they accepted Gadot. After hearing "Rohingya" pronoun...

Last week I made myself watch Mary Poppins and now I'm watching Singin' in the Rain. Potassium is number 19. I caught that as it aired but wasn't completely sure and had to double check. That Fortnite clue was really difficult. I should have been able to get Wuthering Heights and The Stranger but I ...

I said "Assassinate" for the clue about Cladius being poisoned. Would that get a BMS? I don't know if I've ever heard of finger limes and it seems like I won't be trying one any time soon, they're hard to find. 37R. 4/4 on big clues if the Cladius one wasn't immediately wrong.

That goalie clue was bad. 1) They asked for a player, not a position and 2) not that we'll ever know, but I wonder if they would have taken "keeper" or "goalkeeper". The book's title uses "Goalie". I almost never hear them called a goalie. I wouldn't have taken goalkeeper. The clue specifically ask...
