The FJ! category had me make sure I knew all 13 colonies. I knew not to have VT or ME in the mix and was surprised to see Casey have KY as one.
At worst a contestant has a 1 in 13 chance of success. In theory anyway.

Christa's wager turning a win into a loss cuts like a knife.

For the record, my precall was The Epic of Gilgamesh
Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra.

For trivial purposes, that episode contains all you need to know about Gilgamesh.

Re: Wednesday, October 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said chip instead of approach. Would that work? Unfortunately no. The clue specified a shot of at least 100 yards, a chip is a short lower shot from just off the green. I don't know golf - is batter's grip acceptable? Very doubtful, at best it's a BMS. But if he was the sort who wagers big on DDs...

Re: Wednesday, October 21, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Much like the first game of this season, this is another instance where low DD wagering proves costly. Cole definitely could've had this game locked up and not even had to have worried about FJ if he had bet more on the second DJ DD. Like most contestants, he didn't wager enough when he was confide...

Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

While I'm not fond of TIffany's schtick, I thought she showed very nice logic on the chukkas question.

But not thrilled of 45 minutes of schtick and only <15 minutes of real people playing.

NHO Tongass National Forest :shock: In the mid 80's Playboy did a pictorial of a female park ranger who patrolled a region of the Tongass National Forest. Hard to forget. Impressive long stemmed rose tattooed on her inner thigh. It's actually pretty funny how many trivial facts I've learned from Pl...

Re: Tuesday, October 13, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Kind of interesting that you can critique a wager even if you're the sole contestant. His small bet guaranteed that he'd be the first one (so far) cut from the ToC of the 4-game champs. To me, it'd be worth it to bet big and lock up the current 10th spot on the leaderboard - a likely invite if he w...

Re: Tuesday, October 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Also the $800 clue also seems like a tossup to me. Maybe Doc Holliday wouldn't be the type to make that quote but he also survived the OK Corral. 7 survived the gunfight, but they're almost certainly not going to ask about the other 5. So pick the most honorable between Wyatt and Doc, that's pretty...

Re: Fun with NBC's "The Weakest Link"

Yeah, I have to agree with you there. But I have no doubt that's a producer egging on the contestants, and not their real feelings. I mean, honestly, you're selected to go on a national primetime game show - I would think you'd be all sunshine and lollipops that day in terms of mood, with a bit of ...

Tiger and Phil have been near the top of the Forbes list for 20 years now, much higher than most would think. But this was not a clue for the regular Jeopardy crowd and will poll quite low here. Good clue for a sports specific game. Personally, was not thrilled when Phil played the Champions Tour fi...

Re: J! in the Media

Or perhaps he’s just manstrating. :lol:

Seriously though, it’s 7 episodes and 2 perceived errors. 7 episodes. We’ve seen issues before and not jumped to conclusions. It’s not fair or logical to draw any conclusion at this time.

Re: Friday, September 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

the clue wasn’t even close to being pinned. As you said, other NASCAR drivers has been in the #24 recently. But there’s also many other racing circuits to consider, Indycar, F1, and countless smaller circuits. The clue basically said name the most famous driver of a #24 car. ...who's doing cancer-r...

Re: Friday, September 18, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My mind didn't quickly go to Jeff Gordon for that one, because he hasn't been in the 24 since 2015; plus Chase Elliott and William Byron have driven it regularly since, and while unlikely, the answer could've been either of them. For non-race fans, because of the word driver, and because this was a...

Likewise. This was especially galling as I could clearly recall the movie "Frida" from 15 years or so ago, which was all about their stormy love life, but blanked on the name for the crucial 30 seconds. It's excellent, btw, highly recommended, not for the kiddies. Everything I know about Diego Rive...

Nope, no mention on the Wednesday show about the Tuesday FJ! round. Good thing I didn’t wager too much. Hoping to hear an official response at some point.
