Good thing my knowledge of Shakespeare is somewhat limited, I got Julius Caeser and Juliet Capulet pretty quickly.

Re: Thursday, October 27, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't think I could name one Bowie song off the top of my head. That's a knock on myself by the way. I went with "Spirit in the Sky". I knew the singer was probably American, but that's the best I had. Probably because it's used in Apollo 13 . Once again the leader and defending champ finding DD's...

Re: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought "Battle of Bosworth" was sufficient enough.

Did anyone else think Chattanooga was too obvious at the end of the "C"ities category?

Bull Run a TS?

Lani goes hunting first selection in DJ! and doesn't make it a true DD? Possibly cost her the match.

I fell for the Canada neg-bait on the Victoria architecture clue.
IIRC, there was also an Aboriginal-sounding word/city in the clue, which led me to Australia rather than Canada.

I always forget about the Battle of New Orleans, so I went with the Battle of Baltimore. D'oh.

Re: Tuesday, October 11, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'd like a see a poll on who got "Friday" for the first DD. Seemed a bit tough for the $600 spot, but I got it because it's one of my favorite movies.

Took me a while but I did get Shanghai.

Very good wagering from Pidge which helped her comeback.

Took me a while, but I got down Wheaties just in the nick of time. Total guess that Weizen = wheat.

Re: Monday, February 15, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Pretty lenient accpetance on "What is relay? 400 meter relay" versus the correct "4 x 100 meter relay" when there is also a 4 x 400 meter relay. It was pretty obvious that Jeopardy had contractual obligations to show the entire "Race" category. It's a shame it took a big chunk out of DJ time. No ide...

Re: Thursday, November 19, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was anyone else miffed that they counted Matt's response of "itinerant" for the "vagrant" clue incorrect? I don't remember the exact wording of the clue, but it seems like it should've been accepted.

i·tin·er·ant

noun
1.
a person who travels from place to place.
