Re: TD 437 - 2019 in Review (Q7-Q8 revealed)

Ugh, of course I happen upon one of the non-sheep answers. I wanted to submit "heteronormativity" but wasn't 100% sure it was actually a word.

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This was one of those where the FJ answer was so obvious that I was concerned there might be some quirk of geography that actually rendered it incorrect (like how Reno being further west than Los Angeles is non-intuitive to non-locals).

For some reason, I said Duncan Hunter instead of Adam Schiff. Not only is he in the minority party, but he resigned in disgrace.

Judges:

My response to Let's Get Married for $1000 was "What is leaving the church down the aisle?" The clue didn't ask for the specific word and that is essentially what the recessional is. Thoughts?
I'd give it to you.

Re: Roger Craig's trivia triumph app

it's also obviously not affiliated with Jeopardy! and uses none of their content. https://mobile.twitter.com/rogcraig/status/1217219815473123328 This is good. I was worried about the C&D. Other apps haven't been so considerate. I shouldn't have worried that Roger is obviously smarter than that. (Di...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks for the correction on my "math". Ken's wager now makes sense to me, inasmuch as I recognize it was inconsequential.

I did guess Iago, though not confidently. My main memory from reading Othello in high school was how Iago would not shut up, so... :lol:

I knew eSwatini would sheep. But I couldn't resist submitting it anyway. Also, for what it's worth, apparently the Raiders plan to move into their new HQ in Henderson, NV around June. As a Chiefs fan, this just feels so weird to me. I don't want the Las Vegas Raiders as a rival. (At least it's not L...

I don't understand Ken betting 0 in a wheelhouse category (Shakespeare). It was no secret what James was going to bet.

Went with the Federalists over the D-R's because for some reason I thought the D-R's history was counted with the Democrats.

The game is archived: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6523 I added a note after clue 30 in the J! round as Katie negged the clue and her score went from 4800 to 4600. The round ended with 4600 for Katie displayed. When the DJ! round began Katie was shown with 4800 and nothing was said...

Re: ABC Plays Keepaway

I'm still irritated with them. I got to the third audition stage a couple summers ago, was told I was being recommended to go on the show, and never heard another word.

Thanks for indulging my baseless complaining. :lol:

Thanks for hosting! +100 More of this. Putting together and running a quiz takes time and effort.

Re: Tuesday, January 7, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said Ronaldo but with a nagging "what if it's Messi" fear. Fresh in my mind was a meme about Ronaldo bragging about his lavish life on social media, which gave him the edge in my mind. Soccer is not my specialty at all and those are really the two modern players I could name.

Gotta love her, but Karen is giving conservatism a bad name with these FJ wagers.
It's odd to make that point in a game thread where her max safe bet would have been 599.

Mark: was your other precall adapted to a 1975 Oscar-winning movie? I was thinking Kansas. Trying to figure out why Kristin would throw away $1k with her FJ wager.

I was a big fan of Jennifer Quail during her run, but I had the misfortune to check out her Twitter account today. Lots of snark toward the show and the contestants, and seems to have little respect for Karen or her game. After scrolling through Jennifer's tweets, I now really hope Karen passes her...

Re: It's a Hand! It's Michigan! category poll (1/3/20 spoilers)

0/4. I had an ex-girlfriend who grew up in Jackson, which is the only way I've ever heard of it. Obviously I've heard of Grand Rapids and Bay City. The other one was unfamiliar.
