Re: Thursday, March 14, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I echo what Paucle said. I first thought of "I Want to Hold Your Hand", since that was the song that pretty much launched Beatlemania in the States, but then I keyed in on the song length and immediately switched to "Hey Jude". A long and immensely popular Beatles song? What else could it be, really?

Re: Tuesday, March 12, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

If I had $1000000, I'd be rich. Love that song. (Coincidentally, I had a dream last night that I was in line to redeem a winning lottery ticket. And there was a TV on in the line, and I was watching myself win $1000000 on Wheel.) I had a dream where you almost won $1000000 on Wheel, but you weren't...

Re: Are the rounds getting completed more often lately?

I was amazed they got through everything today (Thursday), since Anne insisted on saying "I'll take [full category name] for [full dollar amount], please." Every. Single. Time.

Also, the number of clues read by Al Gore is way down. That helps.

Re: Tuesday, March 12, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

When I got to the "what are your goals for being on Jeopardy?" question on the contestant forms, I wrote, "I want Alex to correct my French pronunciation." I had this happen twice in my two games... I guess ten years of French classes wasn't enough for me! (I never could do the R-sound properly) On...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

No Tommy / Pinball Wizard references yet? For shame.

I got a Monday Night Football pinball machine [not my pictures] for my 8th birthday. Great fun, and we still have it. I think my favorite pinball game to play in the arcades was Attack from Mars, though.

Re: Monday, March 11, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

For FJ, I blurted out "Tess of the d'Urbervilles", just because it was the only Thomas Hardy character I know (as it was for several others here, I see), even though I couldn't figure out any connection between the name and the Pure Drop Inn. This seems to be one of those cases where it was better t...

Re: Monday, March 4, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was a little puzzled by "rad," and looked it up to confirm my impression: it's a measure of radiation, or more specifically of radiation absorption. Those science-qualified among you: Does that by definition mean energy? (I had always thought radiation was not energy in itself, but rather a sort ...

...and I'm a huge college sports fan (if you couldn't tell by my avatar). But the only thing I'd assume you're a fan of, from your avatar, is bank machines. :? Brian I'll give you a pass on that because you're Canadian ;) (Not that there's anything wrong with that... I'm 1/4 Canadian myself :) )

Georgia Tech not a football power? What do you call going 6-6, winning your division, and then having to petition the NCAA to play in a bowl game with a losing record? :P And the only good connection between SMU and sports cars is that's what they used to give their top recruits :P (ah, the good ol'...

Yay! Sara, you were pleasant and charming and I was glad to see you win. Out of curiosity, did you know Joshua's missed DD towards the end there? My first instinct was twice a day, but the q made me change it to 4. Nice get on FJ. I got there maybe halfway through the time, after I realized that id...

Sorry to be commenting so late on Wednesdays game,but I was wondering if the 4 letter word that begins with "K" for a middle eastern drug could also have been "keef"? I believe keef is smoked more in the North African countries but would it have been acceptable? The clue specified that it was a nar...

If I said, "YYZ is the only Rush song I know," the fact that YYZ has no lyrics should not affect anyone's comprehension of what I said.

Re: Monday, February 18, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I remember being completely floored when a FJ on Presidents asked for the only President with double letters in both his first and last name. That should have been easy to figure out by going through the list in order The problem with such clues is that there isn't time in FJ to run through the ent...
