Re: Final Jeopardy! Clues

CITY NAME ORIGINS The original name of this city, founded in 59 BC, reflected its location between two rivers. What is Florence? (original name Fluentia). Baghdad is possible negbait here, but it was founded way before 59 BC. I said Budapest. Thinking about "original name" should have steered me aw...

Re: TD 439 - Buffalo (final results)

Blue Moon is sold as Belgian Moon in Canada - that was my attempt at weaseling into a singleton. That being said, I don't know if any of it is actually brewed at a MillerCoors facility (vs. Molson Coors). According to this article I found, the name difference appears to be because of a trademark sn...

9. I have never actually been to Buffalo, New York. As a child, I did head to Buffalo, Texas for a family reunion. Name one of these cities in Texas (letter preferred - 3 points will be added if no letter is provided). It may help to keep in mind that none of these answers are used more than once. A...

Dare I ask how many joined me for RBIs?
Just one.

I was kind of surprised by how the whole question played. On this topic, I really had no idea how the board's knowledge would play.

7. Buffalo, NY is represented by the NHL's Sabres. The sabermetrics revolution in sports has introduced a number of acronyms to sports parlance, particularly in baseball. Identify one of these baseball-related acronyms, most of which have nothing to do with sabermetrics. MLB Major League Baseball WH...

I happened to know FJ cold, but it could have been read as "name the first leader of a rebel army you can think of."
In light of today's news about Kirk Douglas, my mind went elsewhere in response to that particular question.

I think I got Harpers Ferry and Valley Forge mixed up somehow. "John Brown" should have steered me to Civil War, but I doubt it would have been enough for me. I will forever associate John Brown with the John Steuart Curry painting "Tragic Prelude" in the Kansas State Capitol: https://www.wikiart.o...

Yeah. To pick anyone else would be to overthink it for no reason. If anyone did pick a different Confederate general I'd be interested in knowing what in the clue led them to their choice. One thing that briefly sidetracked me was remembering that there was a famous Confederate figure who witnessed...

Can you re-check the answers for Q5? You have"Jimmy Stassen" listed as an answer, and not Jimmy McMillan -or- Harold Stassen. You also don't have an answer recorded for me at all - I answered Harold Stassen. Thanks.
Fixed it, thanks.

As a Winnie-the-Pooh fan, I must protest that Hundred Acre Woods, like Revelations, is flat out wrong.
