Re: Thursday, July 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Don't know how many of you are on Twitter, but Laura found my tweets about her (along with those from a lot of other people) and was retweeting them to her followers yesterday. I sent her a link to the this place; we'll see if she follows up.

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Speaking of clues, am I losing it, or did one of those Thai clues mention mouse droppings? NO, you heard correct. Memo from the J board: Thanks a lot for not picking me in ELECTION YEAR BEFORE & AFTER: Sincerely, Michele Bachman Turner Overdrive Hmm wasn't there one unrevealed clue in the category?

But sorry, Alex, Guns n Roses is NOT a good guess for 38 Special!
I had never heard of that band in my life. :(

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

That game was tons of fun, and not just because I only missed 7 questions or so the whole time. I'm mad that I couldn't come up with FJ, but now I'll never forget the UN's official languages. Laura, wow, big bet almost paid off. Glad you could make it exciting and keep it from being a stomping. How ...

Re: Wednesday, July 11, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I haven't had a game that good in a long time. I was 90% sure about Lincoln, enough to count it as a get for me. Pretty sure I got at least 3-4 in every category, no "Medical Talk" or "Opera" here, thank the lord.

Did Alex seem to be a particularly jolly mood to anyone else?

Anyone else go for Lee Iacocca on FJ?

I did really well this time around, lots of gimmes. The only one I was mad about missing was Berry Gordy. Jennifer...well, as was discussed in yesterday's thread, you have to be good to ge there in the first place, but that was rough to watch.

2 instagets in 2 days - I expect tomorrow's category to involve Etruscans to make up for this.

For the George Harrison Clue, why would they make reference to a Paul song? That makes no sense and it threw me off. Because George sang lead on "Something." IIRC they also referenced "I've Just Seen a Face" in the clue, which is a McCartney number. It was "I Saw Her Standing There" but yeah

Well I did horribly on the boards but instagot FJ. This never happens. "Medical Talk" is the worst category possible for me.

Thanks to Twitter, I now know that actual Major League Baseball pitcher David Aardsma got the northpaw clue, so I am apparently a dummy. Were you checking to see which players got it in alphabetical order? (I'd never actually heard the term, but I figured it out.) I maintain it wasn't a fair clue, ...

My Oklahoma native girlfriend agrees that scary/cherry rhyme. I'm from Jersey and they're quite distinct when I say them. Go regional accents!

They sound the same to me. How do YOU pronounce those words?
cheh-ry and scayry, approximately. Not a great rhyme.
