Caffeine free, me. I suspected immediately that Massachusetts was the correct answer for final jeopardy. The capitals of Vermont New Hampshire and Connecticut are not even the largest city in their respective States. I can't believe Portland Maine is in the top 100 of population. That left Massachus...

I said knight for white knight. Judges? (Of course, white always moves first.)

I didn't remember any of the contestants from regular play.

Re: Friday, November 1, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm surprised no one has alleged that Jennifer doomed herself when she corrected Alex on nine months versus nine years. The Ottawa Journal folded in 1980! Alex might have been intimating that the champ was the Ottawa Bureau correspondent for Le Journal de Montreal or the Edmonton Journal or the Wall...

Johnny pronounced Toronto incorrectly, with a hard t. It's pronounced either with silent t, Turonno, or a soft t, Turondo, which is how Alex pronounced it.

"Franz Ferdinand" rings no bells for me unless we're talking about the band.

I thought of you when that clue came up and remembered this exchange from May 2015:

Alex's opening was typical length.
Does Alex do those ad libitum or are they scripted?

It seems like the question about Disraeli was cumbersome by using the locution "person of Jewish ancestry." Is there some reason they couldn't have referred to him as a Jewish person or a Jew? Is the latter term now regarded as a dirty word? I insta got Streisand by knowing she began her recording c...

Was it twice contestants hit DDs as their first move into a category? The way Amanda held the signaling device, no ring was visible on her left hand. I wonder if she's single. I guessed Zimbabwe but was not overly confident. I think the former Anglo-Egyptian Sudan was part of the Commonwealth and su...

Re: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I still don't understand why that "rose is a rose..." quote is famous. My Theater Arts professor said it was because of the rhythm of the words. If you just say "a rose is a rose is a rose," it doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But if you insert dramatic pauses into it something like "a rose is --...

LOL, just LOL at Zion being someone's last name. (At least he didn't say Arches.) I struggled with FJ and guessed Tom Stoppard. I think the key to this FJ was knowing how many Pulitzer Prizes individuals had won. I'm reminded of a crude old joke where two men are pretentiousally hurling quotations a...

For the second time this week, I'm calling hubris. Geoff's 8000 dd could have dropped him below the champ.he had already gained merely by keeping the champ from finding it.

Does anyone agree with me that Cara bore more than a little resemblance to Karen Carpenter?
