You're getting a bit near TPH level with this. You missed a Final, it's not the end of the world, you don't have to make a federal case out of it in attempting to justify why you missed it and how anyone could possibly get it right with this horrifying "a" vs "the" word choice. One post about it felt quite sufficient, now we're at 11 and counting.
It's always hardest to tell when you're the one who's being unreasonable, isn't it?

I was preparing to board a flight today when the following announcement was made, “The first class cabin has checked in full.” I was not flying first class, I sat in the main cabin.

It couldn't have been sweltering from the climate. They had a roaring fire going in the fireplace. When FDR stroked out, he was thrust forward into the fireplace and his head was roasted like a peanut.
That's a mental image I could live without.
I don't believe it's true, either. FDR wasn't alone when he was stricken. His portrait was being painted at the time.
He wasn't alone at The Retreat. He was alone in the room at the time.
If you're going to claim something obscure maybe you could give a source? What I read says he was not alone in the room.

I'm embarrassed to admit I never made the connection between "cabin" and Air Force One.
I made it as far as thinking, "Hmm, what if they don't mean a dwelling kind of cabin? Did any anyone take the oath while on a ship?"

Didn't get to an aircraft,
Remind me what your avatar means? :lol:
The biplanes didn't have cabins........
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

If he was alone in the room then who heard him say "Rosebud"?

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 depended on it.
Um, that day 1 game film will have 5 Jeopardy games on it. After his first game he had about 20 minutes to change clothes, maybe brush up on the next game's clues, and some encouragement/advice from the staff before the music starts and Johnny announces the next guests (if he's there, otherwise a stand-in will do it in real time). Three games in the morning, then lunch, and two more in the afternoon session. Rinse and repeat on the next day (usually Wednesday), and it is the end of the Aaron Rodgers era. I hope he is satisfied and doesn't replay his mistakes and what-ifs for long.

To your point, I'm sure he will work hard on the overnight if they give him any resources to work with. I doubt if they will offer raw footage, especially since there will be a "Friday" champion playing the next day.

hot and dim was supposed to lead to the interior of a plane? i was thinking of some cabin with no electricity.
Fell for Daniel Boone.

Was confused about Texas being in the Midwest/Abilene clue.
20th C American History pretty much precludes Daniel Boone as the answer.
I think CyrusChan's Boone response was in response to the Washington DD.
D’Oh! My bad.

I know the schedule. I also know the approach of an NFL quarterback, who often has far more film to review in a far shorter window of time. Legitimate question whether it would be made available after day one, but he'd certainly ask.

Sorry I didn't notice your tenure here and of course you know the schedule situation as common knowledge here (and maybe have played ;). I do expect TPTB probably don't let anything out of the studio for fear of S&P as well as their IP concerns. Not for a guest host at least. I'm sure Aaron would like the questions at 4 AM so he can anticipate pronunciation issues and delivery, etc.. IIRC, they were not made available to Alex until 7? AM due to S&P. He also offered wording changes but I doubt if any guest hosts would be so bold.

I'm curious if there will be a step change on the second Monday after he's had his film study equivalent.

In Boseman, every house has excellent speakers.
I'd rather cuddle then have sex. If you're into grammar, you'll understand.
