Re: Thursday, September 29, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS

The wording of the trig related clues would not have made sense if they had started at the bottom of the column. Another super easy FJ. The word Asian threw me for a second because Vietnam isn't the first country that comes to mind when I hear Asia, but the year and the fact the answer referenced bo...

Re: Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Game Recap & Disc(SPOILERS

Well, congrats to Serge! That was a well-played game. a sweep of Avenue Queue, (but of course that's up my early.) Up your early? Is that an inside joke? I found that one easy, too, except for the $400 clue. Sure, O'Connell sounds Irish, but the other two added nothing, so seems to me it could have...

Libby didn't see the situation, either, or else she would have gone all in herself. A non descript FJ category always worries me, but this was an instaget. I'll bet a certain boardie is glad knowing who played Marcia Brady made the difference in the game. Congrats to Serge. You played a good game ag...

Re: J! second season premiere 9/9/85 OB

Many did, but a lot took names like Washington (after George) or other famous Americans or just made up a name. A man moving to Texas, wanting to fit in, might take the name of a Texas hero.

For some reason in my mind I spelled it as buoy (the floatie things in the ocean) and that didn't make sense. I wonder if his ex-slave ancestor that moved to Tex...

Comments on the game...... Seeing the champ on the right wasn't a big problem for me. Hated not having the names appear on screen during the intros, feel bad for the archivist who does this one, could not make out the black guy's last name. Johnny also didn't say how many games the champ had won, th...

I wonder if he'll be off the boot before the TOC airs. It would be strange seeing him go from the boot to regular shoes and then getting the boot back for two weeks.

Never heard of the guy making the quote, got the right person from the spelling in the quote. Same here. I figured either the quote was alluding to (or making fun of) the author's spelling, or it was middle English, and went with the obvious. In the break right before FJ, they gave a plug for the J...

IThis could have been a good night for me (sigh), but ONLY if I could have avoided those Daily Doubles, which killed me, I'm embarrassed to admit. I could have stood up there for a year and not come up with "axial" for the CAT scan DD. Don't feel too bad, I've had over a dozen CAT scans but didn't ...

I'd heard Pinkerton as being the male lead before, but couldn't come up with it tonight. His name got me sidetracked on detectives and never came close.

I'd never heard of the phrase, either. A quick internet search had the phrase dating back to the days of the U.S. cavalry.

I've also been informed by a fellow contestant that I gave SEX EYES to the camera during the intro portion. Apparently what feels like nervous-and hey-is-the-camera-panning-over-to-the-other-person-yet eyes come off as something else. I'll certianly be paying closer than usual attention to the intr...

Re: Final day FJ wagering suggestions

Nice work. Very good job formatting in an orderly fashion, a good addition to the board archives. I had always wished the archive had something like this, thanks for all your hard work.

BTW, kingskip gave youtube links to the 1993 Teen finals in his thread he started for games to be archived.

Anybody else think the bottom clue in Who did she portray was way overvalued? I had never heard of the actress or the movie. but all I needed to hear was Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah 1492. A female role in a movie set in 1492. A fairly limited set of possible people and was pretty sure it wasn't M...
