Re: Tuesday, April 6, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm pleasantly encouraged by Rodgers, especially since I watched only FJ from Monday. As noted, he's a bit of a sleep-aide. The big question is how much he improved on the second day of taping, because, since he's an NFL quarterback, he would have studied the film from day one like his life depende...

Re: Friday, April 9, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

They lost me at "novella". I've either read it or seen a movie about it but I don't remember the rabbit farm McGuffin. I wouldn't characterize it as a novella, whatever that means, but I missed it because I didn't know the story well enough. Fair question. Congrats to the new champion, you wagered s...

Re: Thursday, April 8, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

:( I cycled through Brazil and Rio (not the capital) before remembering Brasilia and figuring that wasn't it. I picked Lima because I only remember a couple of capitals from 6th grade. My other pick was the capital or Argentina, whatever that is. It could be literally any city :lol: . I knew Brandon...

Re: Wednesday, April 7, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If a woman on the wrong side of the law in New England in the 1890s comes up again are there any other legitimate options for the FJ! round when the category is NOTORIOUS? Nellie Bly would not fit the category and I can't find anything illegal Ma Barker did in her teens. It almost seems to me that ...

Thanks, alietr, for providing the context. If you asked 100 literate, well-educated people to copy-edit that passage, I suspect none would flag the "a." That in itself demonstrates that it's idiomatic English. It's a terrible sentence though. It meanders all over the place. The diagram would look r...

What was with the British Labor party clue? Brandon answered 'Labor', and hearing crickets, specified "The Labor Party". The writers should have had that on the card as a good answer. *cough* Labo u r *uncough* Good one. :oops: In my haste to post about it first I fourgot to cheque my spelling. :(

I beat all the contestants in getting Iranian hostages. I thought 444 was Pavlov for that. It happens that so many people played 444 on the day they were released, the Michigan State Lottery suspended trading in 444 in its Daily 3 game.

Put me in the FDR group for the therapeutic polio cabin. Easy to get if you know it's an airplane. Aaron definitely improved for his second game. (Rant alert): I want him to do well, but if they give the job to an entitled, unqualified white male, I might :roll: stop watching the show. There are pro...

Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instead of "who called the field goal?", how about "who failed to score on 7 tries against the Tampa Bay goal line defense?". I went right to Mr. Rogers just based on the sentiment of the quote and it helped that we just viewed the Tom Hanks movie during the last year. I was wondering about Standard...

Re: How Did Dr. Oz Do as Host? (His actual performance, not your opinion of him)

If I dropped in from another dimension, I can't objectively say I'd turn off the TV if Oz was hosting and would leave it on Alex was hosting. I have no sense of nostalgia for Alex, and both Katie and Oz made me chuckle at about the same rate as Alex used to in the span of ten games. I don't recall a...

FJ: I knew it had to be the big waterfall without really knowing which country it is in, one of those South American ones. Came up with it in time after getting "Ribbon Falls" out of the brain.

That is the church that was disestablished. Full credit. So "The Anglican Church" would have counted? That was the first thing that came to mind for me. I'd say so. Nope. The Church in Wales split from the Church of England. Both are Anglican churches. But it's not wrong. If "church" counts, certai...

I will put the under at 35% in the poll, with a chance of the low 20's. I guess the designer's name has some traction, but not to me. What a good game, and I think the champ opened with four misses in a row. The Primer/Primer clue was cruel. I've never heard the children's book pronounced without th...
