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...

Re: Thursday, September 17, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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.

If the FJ clue was something like "He won an Academy Award for his portrayal of Harvey Milk" do you think Sean Pin would be accepted?
Good thing you used Milk in your example, had you used Spicoli, we’d never know as nobody would’ve given the right answer. :D

Over on reddit, Betsy is pissed, and says it was Alex, in grumpy-old-man mode, who made the final call. Well, assuming of course it’s really her, what difference does it really make personally? Everybody knows she knew the correct answer, it cost her no money, she finished exactly where she would h...

Re: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Well, similar to season 1, this season's 2nd episode is going to generate a lot of discussion. Can't figure out why this would be judged wrong with all the phonetic statements Alex has made over the years. This should be a warning to contestants not to use first names, although we all know nothing w...

Re: Season 37 changes and predictions

A friend of mine got the call for September 30. She has to arrive at Sony at 7 am and will have to do her own hair and makeup. The contestants also will be mic'ing themselves. In other words, no close staff interaction at all. Weird thought, but as a man...I would have absolutely no clue how to do ...

Re: Monday, September 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

So good to have fresh shows, a tiny bit of normalcy in these unique times. Unfortunately Jeff turned a win into a loss due to sub-optimal wagering. But I’ll wager that’s not the last time it happens this season month week. This FJ will poll high thanks to the common Roman building Greek connection. ...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

Is there a non-wordy way of rewriting this clue to make one response unambiguously correct? I like the idea of it, though it might be a little tough for regular J!. I take it Sports J! is just a fond memory at this point. The basic knowledge being requested in the clue does seem like a good fit the...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

I think it would have been a fine FJ for Sports Jeopardy. Worded that way? Everyone in the sports world agrees that the word "home" never refers to the state in the team's name and only and always refers to the physical location where they play? I'm not a big sports follower, but that just doesn't ...

Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

Unfortunately, the answer has zero to do with the given category. Changing the category to Stadiums or similar makes it a fair clue. I stole this one from the Car Talk guys. Might be too tough as is but I'm not sure how to reword it without giving the game away. EDIT: I think I may have solved the r...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

It would have cost John $1600 to offer the tie, so I don't fault him. I only raise an eyebrow when the 5-time champ wagers to win by a buck. Really? That dollar was worth that much to you? But you know, there's a lot to think about and I'm sure not everyone notices the possibility. If I'd been a 5-...
