Re: Friday, November 27, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is one I probably get in LL with all day to think. I know someone who used to live in Uganda and posted a picture of herself posing at the equator marker. They post one of those bogus "Oh-look-the-water-goes-a-different-direction-on-each-side" photos? I dimly recall a Colorado news item from t...

There's a non-zero chance I'd have written "ohm". I wonder if that would be accepted these days?
I would have even accepted "ommmmmmmm"

Woolgathering on Monday cost me the 5/5.
Would have gotten Pittsburgh with either half of the clue.
"Canada" instead of Canadian.
No idea for hellanodikai. Can't even remember what I guessed. Or if I guessed.

Spoilerizing as a precaution since I mention yesterday's game. Don't know if it was intentional on the writers' part, but having today's FJ deal with Cats the day after the FJ dealt with dogs? I like it. :lol: After Rhonda's shoutout to her dog, I thought Alex might take advantage to say something ...

MRI on Wednesday. Sigh

Have seen, walked completely around, and touched the Washington Monument, but have never been inside it. It was closed on one visit and we were too short on time the next.

The FJ! clue had 3/3 written all over it as even a guess was likely going to be right. Any possible wrong responses should have been eliminated by basic math and a general sense of where to place presidential terms. When I saw the category and started to played the precall game I quickly stopped as...

Agree with Mark, Winnipeg as TS is inexcusable. Canadian geography ought to be on prospective contestant's review lists as much as Shakespeare or U.S. presidents. Actually, it should be on every American's study list in school, the way it was back when we all walked uphill to school in the snow. "B...

Re: Wednesday, November 11, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I heard "Caucacus" with three syllables, substituting a "k" for an "s". Was hoping that John Williams would not show up on the list, thinking that it would be very hard to come up with any clue at all that would not be a gimme. I don't know how many clues poll at 100%, but that could be one that doe...

I get a kick when old movies set in the future inadvertently have dated logos... (Johnnie Mnemonic has the old 80s 'AT&T' globe, but when I saw it, it was 'at&t') And "2001: A Space Odyssey" included what was then the current AT&T/Bell System logo... but they switched to a new logo within a year of...

When there’s a video clue, do the contestants have the benefit of a text transcript on one of the monitors? The photo, graphic, or other component of the video clue shows up on the auxiliary monitor to the left of the main game board, while the clue text remains in its normal position on the board....

Week of November 9, 2020: KDVR: Due to Thursday Night Football, Thursday's Jeopardy! will not be seen. This may only apply to one or two other people, but for those who watch on KDVR (Denver's Fox affiliate), there may be an alternative. If you're in northern Colorado, southeastern Wyoming, or sout...

Well, looking it up the French and Spanish for thumb are pretty much right there in the clue. Darned if I knew either of them though. Matched the champ with Little Mermaid. Maybe if I had remembered "pollux"= thumb it would have helped. Also matched the champ. My wife was closer -- her comment was ...

"Guerrilla" just never clicked as a Spanish word to me, since I've only heard the Anglicized pronunciation. If more people pronounced it "gey-RI-ya", rolled R or otherwise, then I would have clued in on it being a Spanish loan word. After all, words like tortilla, quesadilla, etc. also have the -il...

Didn't know what the Pritzker prize was for, so I was basically sunk for FJ. I tried to go the Chicago route from the Pritzker family, but that obviously was going nowhere. A good two-parter FJ clue - what's the Pritzker Prize for, and what man of Chinese heritage won it? Unfortunately, I've blanke...
