Re: Monday, June 6, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought Stew said "Kays" instead of "Kay" for the mall jeweler clue. Did I hear incorrectly? I really thought that was going to be overturned, and then Stew wouldn't have had a lock going into FJ. He definitely said "Kays". Brian I, too, was expecting an overturn on that one that never came. Woul...

I was surprised FJ! was a triple miss.

What is the difference between sociology and cultural anthropology, anyway? I thought that one might get overturned.

The TOM isn't supposed to make the clue harder! Any chance I had of getting that right disappeared with that.

Re: Monday, May 30, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I couldn't narrow down FJ! to anymore than "pick a playwright who was active around 1892." Gilbert seemed like a reasonable wrong guess on my part.

I don't know if I've ever heard anyone say the "Outfitters" part of American Eagle in normal conversation.

I mis-visualized the map, and picked Vermont. Turns out that not only was it not one of the eight states, but farther from the great lakes than I realized.

What was with the Jeopardy! round today? The contestants sped through that pretty quickly, yet there were still ten clues left at the end.

Re: Thursday, May 19, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I guessed Eisenhower for FJ! Turned out to be off by a year. My whole thought process was stuck on politicians, though, so I was on the wrong track from the get-go.

Re: Wednesday, May 11, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was there a good way of figuring out today's final? It's the kind of question that isn't very hard with a lot of time, but hard when you've only got 30 seconds. New York was the best I could come up with in the time limit, but it's a terrible rhyme, so not surprised that wasn't it.

Re: Friday, May 6, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I made the exact same "do or die" mistake as the contestants. Such an easy mistake to make, really.

I did smell that Bob Newhart Show miss from a mile away, though. I've seen so many people confuse those two shows.

Would pronouncing acai berries with a hard c have been accepted? I'm not sure I've ever actually heard that word out loud before.

These wildcards are interesting this tournament. Two days ago, I'd have never believed $5000 had a prayer of making it in.

I guessed Matthew Webb for FJ! I thought 1810 might be too early (a lot too early, it turns out), but Lord Byron never came to mind.

Re: Thursday, April 21, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

These kinds of FJ! clues can be frustrating. Ones that aren't terribly difficult, but thirty seconds goes by fast when you have to go through all the NFL teams to get to the answer, and I just had to start with the NFC. Just didn't get to Pittsburgh in time.

I'd have probably guessed New Hampshire for FJ! if not for the TOM. That might've made it a little too easy, but a right answer's a right answer.

Watching Kim not ring in on that final clue in DJ!... I'm guessing she wasn't quite aware of the spot she was in. At least Ricky got FJ! right, so she'd have lost anyway.

Re: Thursday, April 7, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I would have been really tempted to go for a true daily double on the state capital clue, realizing by that point that not only was it an easy category, but a predictable one (there being a limit to just what they could ask, really).

Re: Wednesday, April 6, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Well, I did think of Charon, but I'm not sure that would've counted (everything going on with Pluto the last few years, all kind of a mess), but since Phobos fit the "fear" part of the clue so well, I didn't really dwell on it. Could Charon potentially have been the correct answer on a question like...

I agree on the World Wide Web clue. I had no idea what exactly they were looking for there.

Today's Final being so easy kinda' makes up for yesterday's being so ridiculous.

General Mills = Company
Wheaties = Brand
if they made Frosted Wheaties = product
Aside from me, two-thirds of today's contestants didn't find it clear.

That was a terrible final. It was completely unclear whether they wanted the cereal name, or the company that made the cereal and considering two contestants guessed companies that made cereal, and one contestant even guessed the right company, I wasn't the only one who couldn't figure out what the ...

It was so weird to see all three contestants choosing clues top-to-bottom the old-fashioned way :lol:.
