Re: Friday, January 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Alex: Dennis, I would say you got off to a slow start, but that might be an understatement. :o If you don't like what the host says then do something about it. Dennis did just that winning both the DJ! and FJ! rounds. Easily. Quite a comeback. I was rooting for another 5 day champ, but we'll see wh...

Priscilla might just be the most nervous J! contestant I've ever seen. My goodness that was sad to watch. When I saw the spelling bee category pop up, I initially cursed under my breath for not memorizing the more recent winners, but no, it was just another reminder of how easy the words used to be,...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't think I've uttered the words "holy $#*!" so many times in an hour of J!. Wasn't expecting Ken to go all-in on the first FJ, and wasn't expecting James to miss the second. Congrats to Ken. FINALLY won a big match. Despite what Alex said, I don't actually believe this is the last time we'll se...

Re: Tuesday, January 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wish I could say that I got FJ right due to some deep geographical knowledge, but honestly I just closed my eyes and pictured the world map, thought about where an uninhabited island the size of WV would be, and Canada jumped out. I'll take it. Anagrams, vowels, and books/TV were $9k in free money, ...

Re: Reretaken Down

Ravens with the glass jaw. Unreal. I thought for sure this year's Super Bowl would be some combination of Rodgers/Brees vs Mahomes/Jackson. Could still get GB/KC, but with a round and a half to go, Tannehill vs Garoppolo is still in play :lol:

Nothing fancy, nothing flashy, just slow steady domination. I could get used to this.

Not sure what it says about me, but the bible birds were miles over my head (1/5), while that hip-hop feuds category was an easy 5/5 :lol:

Instaget FJ.

Re: Reretaken Down

More overtime playoff football. I approve.

Bet that pass to Thielen put a smile on Mark's face. Or a celebratory yell and fist pump. Whichever. On to SF.

I'm gonna sound like TPH here, but Rachel Platten seemed obscure for the top box. She only appears one other time in the Archive, for the exact same thing, and was a bottom-row clue. (A contestant got it, but it was more recent then) I sure as hell didn't remember who she was (but tbh I never liked...

Re: Friday, December 6, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

'Retired Sports Team Numbers' was a category I could sink my teeth into. Naturally, the players avoided it until almost no other clues were left. Easy run of the category. I ran that category, and sports generally is a nightmare category for me. Those were either easy clues or I'm improving a lot. ...

That DD was yet another football clue where I would've passed out from shock had the contestant gotten it right. "It's Not Rocket Science" was the crappiest, laziest category in a while. Please don't do anything like that again, J! writers. Barbarians + movie stars? Gotta be Monaco. ........... .......
