Re: Monday, November 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I couldn't believe "bill & coo" was a S&S, but it seems to have thrown at least a couple on this board. I know it from the lyrics of quite a few olde songs, but then I know and love music from well before I was born. (For point of reference, I was born in 1955, the year considered to be when Rock & ...

Re: Wednesday, November 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Never even heard of any of those TV shows. Yup. That was a solid 0/5 for me too. Might as well have been a category about medieval Sentinelese sporting equipment. What is a rock? I have no clue on the other 4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCf2ZZLHy-k This also describes what I got in FJ!

Re: What ought to happen next?

Regardless of any decisions the grand poo-bahs make regarding any future streaming, one thing I would hope they can do is somehow convince the TV contract-holders to allow Jeopardy to put up the final Alex episode on YouTube where practically anyone would be able to find and watch it. Only this epis...

Re: What ought to happen next?

I like that idea of trying out a number of hosts over the remaining portion of the season. Then the powers that be could take the summer to look things over and choose the best one from there. Hopefully, taking their time with long looks at their top candidates would make it more likely they get it ...

I guessed Little Bo Peep on FJ!.

Have heard the name Thumbelina, couldn't possibly guess what it was.

Don't worry about proofreading. That's what spellcheck is for.
You mean, "spelcheck", right?

Count me as another who has never heard the never heard the phrase "have skin in the game" before. I said "head in the game", but that didn't seem right. And it wasn't.

I had zero chance on FJ!...

If there had been no category, and a question asking who Dalton Trumbo was, I would have had no clue, even though I have heard the name before... Somewhere.

ZERO idea on FJ... None whatsoever. I managed Pretty Boy Floyd just in the nick of time... I figured Billboard 2020 was a sure 0-fer for me, but guessed Eminem correctly simply based on the fact he's a famous Detroit rapper. Even though I got lucky once there, I'd rather not see any recent pop-cultu...

Re: Monday, October 12, 2020 FJ Poll (SPOILERS)

I first pondered 2010, hit on nothing, started thinking of insects... Stumbled onto Butterfly in my head, and vaguely remembered that there was a butterfly sanctuary in Denver that I almost went to with a past girlfriend some 20 years ago... And then even more vaguely remembered that I had been told...

Missed only $1,000 in both Behind the Voices and Furniture. Another second or two and I could have gotten "armoire", but no way was Natalie Wood happening.

Re: TD 453 - Quiz Bowl

The description on the Google Form doesn't appear to match the question above.

Above: Name a current MLB stadium that has ever hosted a NCAA bowl game or NHL regular season game.

Google Form: Current NFL stadium to host a college bowl game and/or NHL regular season game.

Which is it? :)

Re: Season 37 Preemptions

I don't think KGO bothered to show Jeopardy at all on Wednesday... The 3am time you have listed was something called "Tamron Hall", according to DirecTV.

Same thing is listed tonight.

Am I the only one who feels like the quality of writing has really going down this season? No, you're not. I've noticed, too. The Colorado/Colorado State clue could have been written more clearly, and there was another tonight that I can't think of right now... but J-Archive isn't loading for me atm.
