Category makes FJ too easy (though it's pretty easy on its own).

What happens if he'd bet it all and got it wrong? Can someone win FJ with 0? Is it possible for NOBODY to win FJ?

I was a bit surprised it was 1/3 but if you don’t know who Lewis is you are in trouble. I guess if you know Smith played Ali it helps but as said above the movie isn’t very recent. I got it from knowing Lewis was a boxing champ and then Smith playing Ali sealed the deal. Given our recent discussion...

Nibir was the only one who knew "quid pro quo", so for that he deserved to win and Tyler didn't.

Judges: Salem okay by itself? It's probably the most famous, but there's also several others, notably Oregon's capital.

I forgot to mention in the previous post that Rachel got credit for having "and" between the two and not a hyphen, so either way is fine if it comes up for judging a response come poll time.
I'd probably be okay with no hyphen, but I'm not sure having an "and" should be allowed.

Re: Monday, March 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think it's important to point out that: 1) Singin' vs. singing has nothing to do with "grammar," and singin' isn't an "error" — it's an informal/dialectal pronunciation variant; and 2) "Dropping the g " is a total misnomer, since there is no /g/ sound in the -ing suffix. The letters ng represent ...

I've always understood the rule on Jeopardy to be that you are not penalized if you fix a grammatical error for example by changing Singin to singing but you are in trouble if you drop a g, such as changing Waiting for Godot to Waitin' for Godot. Heaven Help me if I ever get on the show and Final J...

Re: Monday, March 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Shower thought this morning (seriously) - would a contestant get dinged for "Singing In The Rain"? Different situation than Gangsta's/Gangster's Paradise. It is? Seems like a similar situation to me. The film's "Singin' in the Rain" (I wouldn't be opposed to making the apostrophe required); the son...

Okay, is it just me that has an issue with Lebanon spelled with an E? It's a schwa in English; you could replace it with any other vowel (including y!) and it would be accepted. Lebbynon would be accepted?? :shock: Sure, there's no reason the Y couldn't be pronounced as in "anonymous." Huh...I gues...
