Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

I haven’t bowled in like 30 years, so yeah, no I was kind of hoping for that....and I figured, despite your crap math score, that you would know that algebra was derived from arabic. Thanks to that I actually beat morbeedo, 6(5)- 4(4)! I’m actually surprised I have such a low math score! I always e...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

My answer to the 'Did you watch Arrested Development?' question was no. Lol. Same. And yet frozen banana occurred to me, and then I swatted it away, settling on sno-cone as better than blank I couldn’t come up with the 1980s auto flop, even when spotted ends in O (or at least that was my assumption)

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Let's say November tapings are out, if not for staff grieving as anything else. The first three weeks of December could be a time to make hay and get shows done for 2021. I still advocate for two weeks of vault airings around the holidays to put off Alex's last shows airing. It's a cliche, but "The...

I knew I was in trouble with ODD PAIRS when Alex’s example went right over my head. Didn’t help that the players started from the bottom Mariah Carey... yasss! Ben looked stunned to lose. Martin Airlines?? Never heard of it. I won the coin flip between Pan-Am and TWA. I’ve seen the film but the logo...

Re: Monday, November 9, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Excellent game! Instaget Final and...a bit of déjà vu. Need to figure out where I saw this clue what seems like so recently When there’s a video clue, do the contestants have the benefit of a text transcript on one of the monitors? I was surprised to learn that Alex had passed but I made my peace wi...

Re: Learned League 87 -- Nov/Dec 2020

I find questions like Q6 yesterday so hard to defend. Its a sports question that, at first glance, is hard as I certainly did not know the answer, but really ends up being, "Name an old famous yankee." My opponent was British and not great at sports, so that got the 3. Of course, he named the corre...

Re: Friday, November 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Excellent game - a standout in a most uneven season Instaget Final - sad I won't see that clue in any of my games! Matched Burt with blanking on Gene...ugh. In this case, Andrew had the full name on the ready for the rebound. Note to aspiring contestants - be careful not to speak until you have a co...

I get Morbeedo right out of the gate it appears....(praying for sports questions and no theater....)
Lol. Probably safe to assume my sports score won’t improve, unless he asks who just won the baseball thing

Re: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The standings are determined only when the race is over. A sprint might put you into the leader position *during the race, but then you would likely bonk and fade away. So you've never heard of someone referring to "the current standings"? I don't think standings are reserved for the final outcome....

Re: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I can't see how "sprint" is wrong for the marathon clue. Fits the category - S to T. Fits the clue perfectly - if you "take a sprint", then you will go up in the standings, but in all probability, it won't last for long due to exhaustion. Compare to "shortcut", where, if it's not discovered, you ca...

Thomas Mann a triple stumper again!? Could we get a poll question please?

Surprised to see Little Bighorn come up again as a neg for Wounded Knee

Time ran out as I got to Delaware, the First State. Proud to be first! Why not!
