Re: Tuesday, November 15, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I knew Underwood was married to a hockey player and that Judd is married to a race car driver but had no idea who. Mrs. Brady's name rung a bell afterwards but it registered nothing at the time. I have never heard of Carol Alt and reading her Wikipedia article yielded a list of movies she'd been in ...

As for me, I was as clueless as you and went with Coleridge. Not familiar with the referenced work. Coleridge wasn't a bad guess. The quoted lines follow the same metrical scheme as Rime of the Ancient Mariner . But they don't follow the same rhyme scheme. For me, I just couldn't get away from the ...

For the first time ever, I went 0/5 in a sports category. I knew Ham, but couldn't pull it out.

Re: Tuesday, November 15, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don't feel bad at all about missing FJ -- I just wagged a random 19th C poet, Tennyson -- as it was a TS. Is there some reason we should be expected to know that? You should know it because you are a TOC finalist. As for me, I was as clueless as you and went with Coleridge. Not familiar with the ...

Re: Monday, November 14, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

If roger enters FJ Tuesday with a superlock (if that's the phrase seaborgium coined) and he has over $38,500, I'd love to see him go all in and set the record. Granted, the record would have an asterisk since he wouldn't be playing with real money, but it would sgtill be cool to see.

Re: Thursday, November 10, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I didn't know until a few months ago...and even with that recent revelation under my belt, it took me about 15 seconds to say to myself after I quickly answered with Katharine and Audrey, "Wait a minute...THEY'RE NOT RELATED!" From then on I was absolutely stuck. For some strange reason, Sissy Spac...

Re: Monday, November 14, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Here was my logic on FJ. I knew Francis Perkins was the first female cabinet member and that she was Labor Secretary. So I figured it would have the most since it had a head start. I hadn't noticed or even thought about it, but six of the last seven have been female. Nothing to add what everyone els...

Re: Friday, November 11, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I agree. Unless one player breaking a lock can enable you to win on a sole solve in FJ, there is no reason to put down your buzzer.

Re: Friday, November 11, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

It sparked a huge debate on the old board, but they accepted a phonetic match in FJ once before, even though the meanings of the words were different.

So it would seem they'd have to accept pie, which is what I wrote down.

Re: 2011 Tournament of Champions Thread

My pre-game thoughts for semi-final #2 only: The laugh meter will be on for any response by Kara vs. Jay's interview to see what rates higher. Spoiler-ish stuff that doesn't spoil any details of the actual game: Alex has the funny line in this one (we'll see if it stays in; I think it manages to be...

Re: Thursday, November 10, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Good grief, what a horrid game. I also had the Redgraves in FJ, though the bit about looking for the first pair led me to believe they weren't it, as I don't recall it happening anytime recently.

Re: Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

My only miss in the Twins was the DD. I guess first ladies' mothers is something we need to study before the TOC. I also missed Danny Boy in BD&A, but the rest were pretty simple. Another 4/5 in mascots, missing only Sasquatch. No chance in FJ. Went for Joan just to have something, but knew she was ...

Re: Tuesday, November 8, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

The promo video on the website shows the SF matchups, at least a three wide shot of Sara's game.

No chance on FJ.

I loved the I-65 category, it runs just two miles from my house!

If you haven't seen the last quarterfinal. They just showed it on TV during the rerun game and I saw all of the semifinalists.
