Re: Reretaken Down

I will double down and agree on this comment. Do you have to say the "Old Course" at St. Andrews? The "New Course" is 125 years old :lol:. (Happy to say I've played both - the New course allows buggies so my 79 year old father could join me). Getting unhinged, and away from Jeopardy, I'd prefer it ...

I said Augusta and since I'm not likely to meet any Club members to laugh at me I'm fine with it... ;) With all due deference to Golf, I'm going to disagree with him and say "Augusta" on its own is just fine.

I knew who they wanted for FJ, but the best I could do is "four letter name that starts with M _ _ _. I got Muir right away. I am nonplussed by the other responses. Ansel Adams was a photographer! Zebulon Pike was killed in the War of 1812. I'm competely plussed by the responses - they were western ...

Re: Learned League 88 - Feb/Mar '21

Knew I've heard the ISIL alternative name pronounced "dash" but needed to make it five letters, so I went with "daash." Nope. And then I guessed "meme cute" for the novel title. Ugh. I was happy to see the question, until I hit the five letter requirement. I wrote down Dashe, Dassh, Daash, and went...

Nothing will ever get me to like the rat-maze. You must go through the entire store to reach the exit. There is one hidden portal about halfway through if you can find it Or perhaps there are multiple hidden portals and you just haven’t found them all? :lol: It's been a while, but I think the last ...

I agree that IKEA is worth going to even if you don't think you'd buy anything there. You might surprise yourself and it is an experience. There's really nothing else quite like it. The first time and maybe every year or so it is pretty cool, like going to a zoo. It is no longer a tourist attractio...

I'm late getting back to this thread and most the discussion seems to agree that the math equation was gratuitous since the number 52 provides nothing to confirm your answer. I like the Depression era reference. I'm a track junkie (see avatar), but not a groupie and I didn't know the Colosseum was b...

Got FJ! on an educated guess, but this MBA has never heard of the "effect" before.

I got two points for the Hot Brown question. I fully expected to get a 0 for that. (I prefer it without tomatoes, though.) I spent most of the day thinking "Louisiana" instead of "Louisville", and eventually needed a quick replacement for alligator. Seeing no real entry, I was on the verge of picki...

People seem to be surprised that an FJ wants you to know the dates and places of the Olympics...Seems like standard J! fare to me, one of those finite bodies of facts that it would be easy to review before going on the show...Course, I haven't done that, and it's not an area I care about much, so.....

I really want to see that Warhol portrait. I couldn’t believe Warhol was a TS with pop artist in the answer. Never heard of the guy the player said but he was seven the day Warhol was shot. I don’t think I have ever watched his show or read anything about his medical advice so I am viewing him with...

The JBL is steaming along, but unless we get Mark Barrett as a commissioner, all the updates and scorecards are going to lag behind :oops: .

Re: FJs for the 3/15/21 week

For some reason, I thought Carrara was spelled C-A-R-R-E-R-A. Perhaps it was because of Barbara Carrera, the sunglasses, or a combination of the two. So I guessed Alabaster too. Exactly. Also thought it was Carrera, and also said Alabaster. So you're saying Alabaster is not an Italian city? Who kne...

Re: How Did Katie Do as Host?

I voted 5 times (3 x 8 / 2 x 9) in order to give Katie an 8.4 (inspired by Afret's 7.8 suggestion :)). I haven't scored the other two against this curve. I started at 8, then thought, if she's only an 8, then what the hell would a 10 ever look like? Even an re-animated Alex isn't two points better o...
