Re: Friday, January 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The game is archived: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6523 I added a note after clue 30 in the J! round as Katie negged the clue and her score went from 4800 to 4600. The round ended with 4600 for Katie displayed. When the DJ! round began Katie was shown with 4800 and nothing was said...

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/8/2020 (SPOILERS)

I would have agonized over whether to append "Friendship is Magic" to "My Little Pony". (My daughters love that show.)

Re: ABC Plays Keepaway

I'm still irritated with them. I got to the third audition stage a couple summers ago, was told I was being recommended to go on the show, and never heard another word.

Thanks for indulging my baseless complaining. :lol:

Re: TD 437 - 2019 in Review

Thanks for hosting! +100 More of this. Putting together and running a quiz takes time and effort. I can unequivocally state from having done this several times that showing appreciation is very much appreciated and provides an incentive to do it again. Yep. A couple times ago when I hosted, the onl...

Re: Tuesday, January 7, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I said Ronaldo but with a nagging "what if it's Messi" fear. Fresh in my mind was a meme about Ronaldo bragging about his lavish life on social media, which gave him the edge in my mind. Soccer is not my specialty at all and those are really the two modern players I could name.

Gotta love her, but Karen is giving conservatism a bad name with these FJ wagers.
It's odd to make that point in a game thread where her max safe bet would have been 599.

Mark: was your other precall adapted to a 1975 Oscar-winning movie? I was thinking Kansas. Trying to figure out why Kristin would throw away $1k with her FJ wager. Although there are times and contestants where I would take a flyer like this on bad math under the lights. Facing an about to be eight...

Re: Friday, January 3, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was a big fan of Jennifer Quail during her run, but I had the misfortune to check out her Twitter account today. Lots of snark toward the show and the contestants, and seems to have little respect for Karen or her game. After scrolling through Jennifer's tweets, I now really hope Karen passes her...

Re: It's a Hand! It's Michigan! category poll (1/3/20 spoilers)

0/4. I had an ex-girlfriend who grew up in Jackson, which is the only way I've ever heard of it. Obviously I've heard of Grand Rapids and Bay City. The other one was unfamiliar.

Not a final, but since this is where we are putting our homemade questions. This one is dumb, but it came to mind and I was hoping to find a way to word it so it might not be so dumb?

When I think about or come across such things is when I miss Dan Patrick in the J! studio.

So much for the Holzhauer effect, eh? Of all the five-game winners after him, the only one who has distinguished himself as an aggressive wagerer has been Sam Kavanaugh.

I loved the question as well, though I fell for the Washington negbait (after also briefly considering Lincoln, NE).

I believe the world's largest city named for a US president is Monrovia, Liberia.

That could work. You could try "Davis is tennis" for a little rhyme stretch?

Jefferson Davis was rumored to have escaped in a dress, symbolizing cowardice, which is symbolized by yellow, which is the color of a tennis ball. There you go.

Re: Friday, December 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nice to have all 61 clues played especially with fun stuff like MAIL-ORDER NOVELTIES on the board. A cleaner game by Matt and he could have forced Karen to lose more on DD3. As is, Karen's 12400 Coryat was enough today coupled with her solving the FJ! clue. Jamison's IMDb page: https://www.imdb.com...
