Re: Monday, May 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My wife thinks airing Ken's first game and then the GOAT tourney is a preview to Ken being announced as Alex's replacement. Can't say I'd be shocked if that came to pass. Hopefully Alex continues on. If not, though, Ken is personable, quick on his feet and comfortable in front of the camera. He wou...

Re: Thursday, April 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Japan seemed obvious in retrospect after reflecting on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I'm not sure why, but I didn't think of it. I love the Beatles, and am pretty familiar with their songs. For some reason, in the context and time constraints of watching Jeopardy!, I have a hard time associating lyric wit...

Re: MoNday, April 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm glad I didn't have "ultimate Frisbee" at the tip of my tongue, because I would have buzzed in with it instead of "disc golf". I did have it on the tip of my tongue, but noticed the DG in the CDGNC before I would have answered. I am a long-time Frisbee player, mostly Ultimate but also disc golf,...

Re: Monday, April 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Panama Canal was obvious.

If I were Emma, I probably would have bet 0 on the final hoping that 12K would be enough to get me at least a wild card.

Re: Tuesday, March 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Poetry is easily one of my worst categories. And I thought final was obvious. I was surprised it wasn't a triple get.

In my quarantine binge tv watching, I just saw a biography of Norman Lear. Easy final for me.

Re: Thursday, March 19, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I never thought about the Philippines. Had I thought of it, I probably would have rejected it as I never knew this bit of history. As I really didn't have a good answer, my wild guess was US Virgin Islands.

I went with Turkey and Iran, with a low degree of confidence. At least they are neighbors. :D

I just couldn't pull the name for final. My best guess: McFish.

FJ. I knew the clue referred to boxing. What is the name of those rules titled after a nobleman? Think, think, think. Ah, Marquess of Queensbury. Sorry, way too late.

Re: Tuesday, February 4, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Took a roundabout, although probably misguided route to the correct final. Australian mammal > Ornith prefix > egg layer > platypus. I'll take it. A get is a get.

Re: Friday, January 31, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For final, I thought of Camembert and Champagne and wavered back and forth. I knew Champagne is a town and wasn’t sure if Camembert is. Stuck with Champagne as my guess. I should have focused more on the cheese hint in the clue.

Re: Thursday, January 30, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I too was wavering between Georgia On My Mind, and Sweet Home Alabama. I knew SHA was by Lynyrd Skynrd (only vowel is a Y) and I thought that was about right for 1974. I put GOMM at Ray Charles and I figured that must be earlier. Turns out GOMM was a remake of an even earlier version. So, I got FJ r...

On other forums I've seen younger Don Rickles and Michael Chiklis (The Commish timeframe) for Dennis.

I had him resembling Bob Newhart.

Re: Monday, January 20, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thought Sect. of State was obvious. I went hunting for the second. AG never occurred to me, although it probably would have if I had more time to think about it. Went with Education based on the current office holder.

My wild, stab in the dark guess for final was Denmark. Geography is not my strongest subject. My thinking was Denmark > Greenland > wild guess.

My (totally wild) guess was the Watts Tower. Never would have gotten Griffith. I haven't been in LA in about 45 years.

Newcomer to the board. Please go easy on me, the newbie. Longtime J fan.

I thought Kissinger in the bottom box on Face Book was overvalued.
