Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

Same here. Picked the correct colour group, but went the wrong side of Chance. New mnemonic: the I's have it (Illinois/Indiana are together, Kentucky separate).

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Jesus, this has been a season. 1-5-1 in my first 7 (the 1 being a 9(6) victory), a couple of squeaker wins in the last couple days (like a 2(3)-1(2)), then out of nowhere I get a 9(5) yesterday, my one miss being Ockham.

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Squeaked out a win 7(4)-6(5) yesterday. I figured "to be hoisted by one's own petard" was a more common phrase than my opponent did. Happy to take 3 points for it!

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

Trading Places is one of my favourite movies. Happy to go into the long weekend on a 2-win streak, considering my performance thus far has been rather shite.

Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

A narrow loss to begin LL86: 4(3)-5(4). Evidently, the six-letter primate species was not GORILLA BUT WITH ONE L.

Back for my sophomore season. Good luck all! May we each get to drink a six-pack at least once!

Re: Before and After: WoF or J?

Before & After appeared as a category first on Wheel in 1989, and on J! on 4/1/97 (the Pat Sajak-hosted episode), as has been mentioned here a bunch. Since then, however, it is apparently the most common recurring category type to appear on J! ("recurring category type" here refers to things like "C...

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 1984 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The last thing I noticed was that the Daily Double sound was different. When was this changed? My research led me to the Jeopardy! History Wiki (no doubt inspired by another such game show's Wiki with which we are both familiar) which has it changing "by the November 26/84 episode"; apparently more...

Did they hit the ignorance tone at all on last night's show? This might have been the first time we heard it.

They should bring back the awkward walk out. Why'd they get rid of that?
ISTR they had planned to get rid of it right around the time that Eddie Timanus was first a contestant in 1999. Certainly his appearance on the show accelerated that timeline.

Re: Monday, September 10, 1984 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I also notice they cut out part of Alex's opening explanation held over from the Fleming days, where he explained that "when you hear this sound-- <ditditditditditditditditditditditdit>-- it means you are out of Jeopardy! ". EDIT: They're also fading quickly into the commercial breaks instead of the...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I almost put down "Chicago dog", then reread and went "Passyunk sounds like a NJ or PA thing... Pennsylvania sandwich? Philly cheesesteak!" Took a lucky W to close out the week; thankfully my opponent from Leeds hadn't heard of The Partridge Family.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I misunderstood the question and put all three. Didn't end up mattering, as I lost 5(3)-9(6). My record is now a perfect 2-2-2 going into MD7.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

My opponent yesterday (from Ireland) gave me (a Canadian) 3 points on the hockey question. It wouldn't have made any difference to the overall result, but I just thought it funny that given what this country is known for, they might have defended differently. ETA: I picked Ovechkin, FWIW. I remember...
