Re: Wednesday, July 14, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A lot to like about Tyler, IMO. Good contestant, calm, unflappable, etc. All that, and he delivered on the "Cla-rice" response. Very solid performance! I went with The Three Little Pigs for FJ, and pretty confidently, too. Gee, if I'd thought of that I might have gone for it, especially since I wou...

Re: Friday, July 2, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I was rooting for button cute McKenzie. I blew Final Jeopardy with Mack the Knife. I needed more of a Tom to get to Georgia on My Mind from that clue. Mack the Knife was written in 1928 and was the number one hit in 1959, so you can see how I was led astray. Yeah, the serial killer/politician conne...

New and improved is oxymoronic, BTW. Was that supposed to be a hint? Yes, it's a play on the adage, "Build a better mousetrap, and the world will beat a path to your door" (Attributed to Emerson, but not actually Emerson's: https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/build-a-better-mousetrap.html ) Least, ...

Re: How Did Sanjay Gupta Do as Host?

He did a fine job, but after 4 weeks of self-effacing efficiency I'm ready for a little more personality again...which I probably won't get next week. The energy for news isn't quite what the show needs.

I had a question similar to the a vs the thing. In Jeopardy round, " David Jack, a big landowner in this California town..." The accepted answer was Monterrey Jack. The question wasn't asking for the cheese, it was asking for the town. In the past, haven't they been more specific about requiring an...

Did they change the rule? I thought having the wrong initial article did matter.
Not as long as I can remember, with the single significant exception of Invisible Man/The Invisible Man.

Is there another best-selling Canadian author that will show up on J!? Mordecai Richler doesn't make it and they've never asked for Robertson Davies' name, and Saul Bellow was only born in Canada...I think including the country made the clue too easy... Though I admit I drew a blank on the title at ...

Not sure about Gupta's pronunciation of Lesotho . Yeah, when I heard him say that I wondered if I had been pronouncing it wrong. I haven't. Gupta's in good company. (At 39:10) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9g5-46Lww8 Arguably worse. And before the African Union yet! This way of saying it may not...

Re: Reretaken Down

Crossroads was an 80’s movie starring Ralph Macchio and Joe Senaca about two Bluesmen traveling from NYC to the middle of Mississippi. Good flick. Mozart’s Turkish March sounds awesome on guitar. In the footsteps of Robert Johnson, as I recall. I don't remember it much, but a friend who was a music...

The “iconic San Diego area hotel” is the Hotel Del Coronado, typically just called the Hotel Del or the Del. I think Courtney’s answer of the “Hotel Coronado” should have been negged; have never heard it before. The whole clue was a joke. I believe it was described as "the setting" for Some Like It...

I have little knowledge of rock bands and never listened to a U2 album in my life and can't name any of their songs (though I'm sure I'd recognize some). Still this was almost an instaget, so I call this one of the easiest FJs of the season. I did think of The Police (I know a few of their songs), b...

The clue read "Everyone's a" this. So no.
I don't really know why "The Ohio State University" is a thing, so I had no impulse to make anybody feel better by including it.

The only French blue I know of is bleu Evidence was presented that "burning the night oil" is in use, so of course I accept it. There's no Official Idiom Directory to say no, right?

Re: Fun with Fox's "Mental Samurai"

"Tell me what you think of me" is what I remember growing up with in western PA. Now that I hear it again, it sounds like encouragement for the little narcissist...Beg for praise! The other one's sweeter.
