Re: Monday, March 23, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So Michonne went into FJ with the lead, got FJ right, and lost. I could spend a week criticizing that wager, but why bother? The result speaks for itself.

Instaget FJ. We're all too young? Shush, Alex, there's this thing called reruns.

Cursed under my breath at the category, but 1952 musical with a watery iconic scene? I can do that. Instaget FJ.

Re: 2020 Current Events Discussion Thread

Assuming this passes and we're not still dealing with the outbreak deep into April, I could see them giving everyone a week or so of extended ST with a 144-ish game sched starting ~May 1st. Which 18 games they'd cancel are anyone's guess (they still need tons of interleague, with the odd number of t...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

That's one harsh ruling. It's fair, though. I'm sure you'd agree they wouldn't take, "What is 100 10-millions?", so they can't take any other similar restatement of the problem. I decided to search the archive for similar rulings, and this popped up: Show #5719 - Thursday, June 18, 2009 THE BRITISH...

I'm having trouble making 'apex' fit that DD clue, which, despite Alex's comments during the reversal, seemed pretty clear to me. But I'm not an astronomer. The miss I saw coming instantly was the party to go with Democratic-Republicans as it was only a matter of which contestant was going to say Wh...

Ova = Eggs. Kids' book with "egg" in the title? Uh... "virent" sounds like verde/veridian/green, so let's do Green Eggs and Ham.
Ditto. I am curious what the exact, literal translation of the Latin title is (probably nothing more interesting than 'green eggs! green ham!!').

That was almost Ryan Fenster-esque for Bruce, yet it ended in a lock anyway. We'll see if he's got a few games in him. Workers + spreading the gospel around the world? FJ was such an instaget that I spent 20 seconds wondering if there was a trick I was missing, like maybe 1919 pointing to war or the...

Middle East + Cedar shouldn't be a FJ. I did spend 20 seconds mumbling "Lebanon had a space program!?" to myself over and over, but I don't know much about their history.

One of these days I'll actually get a Ray Donovan clue right.

New York minute a TS, eh? Hmph. Bunch of scrubs I tell ya :lol:

Instaget FJ for this sports fan. I wonder if they recognized the Queensbury rules after the reveal. Not making the leap to boxing or from nobleman to Marquess in 30 seconds isn't that surprising. And neither was Gauravi's wager. *sigh*
