Re: Monday, May 19, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That final seemed way too easy for a 1/3 from the contestants. I had it as he was reading (although I'm a big Jeopardy fan). You meant a big Monopoly fan, didn't you? Julia was obviously the best of the contestants today. James just couldn't put it in the basket. I got Marvin Gardens right away but...

Re: Friday, May 16, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I stand by the comment I made on 14/5 that led people to call me a troll. Roger's TDDs were nothing but pure hubris, and Roger isn't good enough to have hubris. BTW, I instagot Lake Winnipeg, and Roger's answer not only indicated a lack of geographical familiarity, but he also failed to understand t...

Re: Wednesday, May 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I used to live in a market where Jeopardy! aired at 9:30 AM and it was the current day's episode. When that same station showed Jeopardy! at 2:40 AM, it was the previous day's episode. You might wonder why they would even bother with Jeopardy! at that hour. It happens that "Wheel" and "Jeopardy!" ar...

Colby said something interesting in his interview. He said that Jeopardy! airs at 2:30 PM in Chicago. Here is a map I created showing local air time for Jeopardy! by TV market. Note that Jeopardy! appears at either 7:00 or 7:30 PM nearly everywhere in the Eastern and Pacific time zones, but basicall...

Re: Wednesday, May 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Final was an instaget for me. Roger is just a lousy, lousy player. Jacques Cartier visited Alberta in 1634? Is Roger unaware that Alberta is LANDLOCKED?! You can bet that if I were French, I would be taking the name of the Lord in vain right now. And he still beat the other contestants. For most of ...

If they wanted a real $2000 question, Quebec's 3rd largest city, Laval, is also on an island. For whom is that island named?

Didn't put anything down for FJ. Wonder if they purposely didn't put that in Ken's game... I wonder about that as well. If they had done it, I'll bet Facebook would have just exploded with allegations! Grrr.... the contestants are chosen without knowledge of what the questions are. The questions ar...

Re: Friday, May 9, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I am not quite sure what "instaget" means, but I had FJ correct by the time Alex was finished reading.

The contestants today missed a lot of fairly easy clues. I couldn't believe Montreal was a $2000 clue and still no one got it correct.

Re: Thursday, May 8, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ken probably Rogered the Monaco clue, but if he misses that and is ruled wrong getting cute on Charles Schulz, there actually would have been a little bit of drama in FJ. He still wins, of course, as even I got that FJ. I thought Jennings was acting too familiar tonight. That kind of behavior will ...

Re: Tuesday, May 6, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Yes, LISP was intended to stand for live-in sex partner. User dhkendall was the first to guess correctly. I thought that was more accurate than POSSLQ for "person of opposite sex sharing living quarters," since the latter can describe mere roommates; and the term LISP can also include same-sex relat...

Re: Wednesday, May 7, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ was an almost-instaget for me. My first thought was the Montgomery boycott, but I hesitated in saying it out loud (my answers are not final until I say them out loud, in the form of a question), until I counted the days back to December 4, 1955. Which is another way of saying I didn't recognize i...

Alright, I can't let it go -- what does POSSLQ stand for? Mostly the last three letters, because I think i know the first three... :P It's a somewhat archaic (read: 1990s) acronym for Person of Opposite Sex Sharing Living Quarters. It was coined around 1980 by the census bureau. I once proposed to ...

MISSED QUESTION OPPORTUNITY

When the countries due south category, I precalled that Detroit, Michigan would be one of the clues in the category. Who knows what country is due south of Detroit?

Cool that there was a clue about Kate Middleton on the day the new king was born, and also an Alan Page question on the day the first woman on the Minnesota Supreme Court died. Well that last thing is not really a coincidence is it? Obviously it IS a coincidence. I think they both were, although th...

Holy Hannah, that new champ is just plain annoying.

I got Hoffman fairly quickly but couldn't remember Philip Seymour Hoffman. I wonder if they would have accepted Hoffman as a response or if I needed both first names?

Not correct. Monarchs can take any name they want, like popes.

And Dr. Brown is available at my regular grocery.
