Re: Thursday, January 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I live three miles from New Brunswick, NJ in East Brunswick, and I STILL missed this clue.

Re: Thursday, January 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

After four Ken games, I would be pretty happy if he becomes the permanent host. Having seen the names of some of the upcoming guest hosts, and I think some of them may be quite good, I wouldn't be surprised if I still want Ken to become permanent after the parade of guest hosts. I'm not sure if Ken ...

I thought Ken did an admirable job. I kept expecting Tanay to say: “I’ll make it a true daily double, Alex.”

Deciding between isomer and isotope. Went the wrong way.

RIP Alex.

What was the TOM for Portugal in Queens for $200?
The mention of the Iberian Peninsula limits the choice to two countries - Spain and Portugal. The mention of Brazil pins it.

I figured Lizard was his nickname, based on his love of iguanas. Does anybody know otherwise?

Re: Thursday, December 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Lefty guitarist from Seattle is a TS at $200? I said Jimi, but did so hesitantly because I thought they were looking for a group due to the category. That may have thrown the contestants off as well. I was hoping for a straight-up category on rock supergroups. But I had trouble pre-calling any othe...

I thought of Pan Am and TWA and couldn't decide between them. Made a space travel to "Trans World" connection and traveled in that direction.

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,...

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.

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.

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.

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.
