I just barely avoided the boxes of shame by having stayed at Snowmass when I visited Aspen (a LOT cheaper to stay there instead of in Aspen).

:mrgreen: :(

Marc Antony was my rather dumb guess on the Shakespeare clue. Brutus would have been a much better try from the same play. I blurted out my answer quickly, though, thinking I remembered it from somewhere, but either it was a different trivia question or maybe I was also wrong that other time.

Playing from here, Love and Maxwell were the only two I'd have been confident enough to ring in. Perhaps I'd have got Welk and/or Aspen if forced to guess, but also maybe not.

On the other hand, maybe "Jea! kwon do" would have sounded close enough.
I'm smart and I want respect.

Iago and Maxwell.

(Sounds like a new cop drama).

Missed everything else. I did ok Coryat-wise during this tournament: most games ~24k level and one game over 30k... but they upped the difficulty on the final questions. The performance to the GOATS on these questions was as impressive as they were during the other 60 questions each game.

Maxwell only. Iago crossed my mind, but over-TOMed it with Polonius. Curtains! (Literally, for Polonius.)

Got Iago.

Should have had Jesus is King since the album was discussed some in my online theology circles.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.

I only knew Lawrence Welk because my grandmother rode the school bus with his accordionist.

Guessed Claudius for the Shakespeare one. When I was going through the tragedies in my head I don't think Othello even came to mind, but I'm not sure I would've said Iago even if I'd thought of him.

Out of the Lach trash I only got the Kanye album, Jeet Kune Do, and Maxwell. Never heard of Snowmass, zabaglione, or Gower Gulch.

They just aren't going to stump me on any questions related to skiing!

That said, I got that one and Lawrence Welk and that's it.

Got both the FJs (Arcadia seemed fairly obvious, Iago an educated guess, but I might have gone with Brutus if I'd thought of him first), but I'm surprised to realize I didn't get any of the others. The only one that I feel I should have gotten was Lawrence Welk, but I said Guy Lombardo instead...

I had three probables for the scientist - Faraday, Clerk Maxwell, Heaviside. Rejected Heaviside as too obscure even for this Jeopardy. Picked Maxwell because it sounded more like his speed than the relatively untutored experimentalist Faraday. Whew.

I got a one and a two (pun based answer for Welk and Maxwell).
This board is out of sad faces so I won't do the graphic.
