I figured Wales entirely because every Welsh word I've ever seen looks like someone forgot to buy a vowel.
This was my reasoning too.

I screwed up several gimmes in the monster movie category. Ugh.

Re: Tuesday, June 26, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Please tell me I'm not the only one who had no idea on FJ. I don't want to feel like a total moron.

Margaret, great run. It was lots of fun watching you. As for our new champ, seems like a good time for grad students in sweaters...

I doubt it, because that's not what he said, and he was directly referencing the name of his party.

Margaret, you are very fun to watch. Hope you stick around for awhile.

"ARGH" - me, watching that game, especially the wrong answers on Final

Congrats to Margaret on your 2 day run so far. I had a feeling you'd be a multi-day champ when you showed up and sounded so excited.

Re: Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

So, I guess it's fairly obvious I know next to nothing about baseball. Football and basketball are my sports and I've never paid much attention to the personalities on teams other than my own (Go Patriots/Lakers/UMich). However, I did know that within the last 20 years, our northern neighbor was ho...

I also waffled on Drake (hooray Canada) but settled on Rihanna.

As a big baseball fan I was screaming at the TV during the entire sports category.

I'm a Democrat but man was that Obama category free White House PR or what?

Re: Tuesday, June 19, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I kicked lots of ass in this game until Final Jeopardy, on which I had no friggin' clue. It's even worse since I live in New York, but I aways think of the "initials" of this city as NYC, not NY. Probably wouldn't have gotten it anyway. Major props to Victoria, I had written her off after the first ...

I just went with the most famous literary pair I could think of from London. Haven't read the stories in ages.

I wasn't even thinking of the wager when I wrote that, just noting how it must have sucked to go all in and still lose by a buck. I have no opinion on your question. But wasn't the wager "go[ing] all in"? It is clear (now) that you just wanted to see your words in print, not that you wanted to invi...
