Re: Thursday, March 5, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Dang it. I did a mental coinflip between "The Island of Dr Moreau" and "Shutter Island" and it came up wrong. :cry: (Oh, and surely I was not the only one to precall "Lord of the Flies" :lol: )

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES Two different Democratic nominees born in this state lost consecutive presidential elections in the second half of the 20th century. I like it. But, dang, while I had the right two candidates, I went with the wrong state. (Instead of one moving east I guessed the other moved...

Do we really need this, now or ever?
What, the reunion itself, or someone telling you that it was gonna be this way?
This thread's a joke.
I'm dead serious. Did we really need a Friends reunion special?
I'm broke. My humor's DOA.
Sorry, my brain is stuck in second gear.

I wondered if any players would guess Elvis If the clue had been simply: '"In July 26, 1972 he testified before a Senate subcommittee" I would have said Presley. But adding "on national penitentiaries" made it a Cash giveaway. ;) I've already deleted the game from my DVR. Did the clue really start ...

Wow, I guessed "The Waitress" as a Hail Mary, thinking there was no chance it was right, but I had nothing better. I was shocked (shocked I say) when it turned up right. :D

This is probably too obscure to be actually used, but when I stumbled across the fact I just couldn't resist.

Anybody else do an impression of Barry Fitzgerald from The Quiet Man whenever they say "Marquess of Queensberry Rules"?
Well, I certainly hear Barry Fitzgerald in my head, but any attempt at an impression would be unidentifiable.

how many of us negged on Admirable Admirals for $2k with "Nimitz".
I knew it wasn't Nimitz, but I clammed because it always takes me a minute to remember the difference between Hyman Rickover and his (mostly) contemporary Elmo Zumwalt.

Lot of trash in this game but I probably won't get around to a fourth podium poll. Count it up yourself and report the results if you feel like it.
Gibraltar, Interjection, Adverb, Base Exchange, Cirrus, General, Preposition, Leakey, Maine, Horatio = 9600. +Tripoli

Davis Cup = tennis seemed obscure for the top box. It's not, but on a personal level, I keep mixing it up with Ryder (golf)... Anyone have a Davis/Ryder mnemonic I could steal?... I struggled with this for years, until I remembered that when I was first trying to learn to play tennis I was using a ...

I know the difference between the Seattle Seahawks and the Portland Trailblazers. I really do. And yet for some unfathomable reason when the clue said "Seattle Seahawks" I read "Portland Trailblazers", and said "What is six?" I fully understood the response should be one more than the regular number...

The Amtrak conductors have always said Dowagiac as "duh-WAH-jack". Johnny had "DOW-a-jack". I grew up 30 miles from there and yes, it's 'Duh-WAH-giac'. Johnny butchered it so bad, I thought it was just some town I never heard of. My wife's cousin lived in or near Dowagiac for many years. When my wi...

Re: FJs for the 11/25/19 week

I guess getting the pretty hard "Dracula" this week kinda makes up for missing the relatively easy "garden gnomes" last week. :)
