I went with Lenin.

Well I did horribly on the boards but instagot FJ. This never happens. "Medical Talk" is the worst category possible for me.

I wish every game had a baseball question and/or category, I'd be the greatest champ of all time.

Re: Thursday, June 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks to Twitter, I now know that actual Major League Baseball pitcher David Aardsma got the northpaw clue, so I am apparently a dummy. Were you checking to see which players got it in alphabetical order? (I'd never actually heard the term, but I figured it out.) I maintain it wasn't a fair clue, ...

My Oklahoma native girlfriend agrees that scary/cherry rhyme. I'm from Jersey and they're quite distinct when I say them. Go regional accents!

Re: Thursday, June 28, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not sure what Japanese beer that was. I guessed Sapporo. Did you forget it was an "A" category? I have been playing and watching baseball since I was 7 or so, and I have never heard of a northpaw. Southpaw is the only one I've heard. Jeopardy writers aren't baseball fans apparently. If they had giv...

I figured Wales entirely because every Welsh word I've ever seen looks like someone forgot to buy a vowel.
This was my reasoning too.

I screwed up several gimmes in the monster movie category. Ugh.

Please tell me I'm not the only one who had no idea on FJ. I don't want to feel like a total moron.

Margaret, great run. It was lots of fun watching you. As for our new champ, seems like a good time for grad students in sweaters...

I doubt it, because that's not what he said, and he was directly referencing the name of his party.

Margaret, you are very fun to watch. Hope you stick around for awhile.

"ARGH" - me, watching that game, especially the wrong answers on Final

Congrats to Margaret on your 2 day run so far. I had a feeling you'd be a multi-day champ when you showed up and sounded so excited.

Re: Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

So, I guess it's fairly obvious I know next to nothing about baseball. Football and basketball are my sports and I've never paid much attention to the personalities on teams other than my own (Go Patriots/Lakers/UMich). However, I did know that within the last 20 years, our northern neighbor was ho...
