The FJ guy’s dirty little secret came out in 1986, so they should have been aware of him even if they didn’t remember him at the UN. For that matter, UN Secretaries General should be on your short list study guide if you get the call and the list was even shorter 30 years ago. A $9,500 combined Coryat isn’t good.

I agree they should have gotten the movie but maybe they misunderstood the category and thought they had to start with B. Minor quibble, but the title needs an apostrophe.
Titles matter, fixed. Thanks.

(I'll pass on the such tiny portion of the Bob Blake)
I got it. I needed to feel like I accomplished something today. I did accidentally enter a duplicate Alan, so you may wish to enter a new player 13461 on the next game you do.

Bob's response on SONGS THAT "DO" is entered exactly as he gave it, so I didn't format it as a title, which would have needed 2 "diddy"s.

Pic of Michael Cantor was shared in May.

Strange for a tri-get and the leader to finish in third.

Myron: Thanks for the work on the Blake game. Naturally, the game I did this afternoon had to have 3 players already in the Archive, so I'll try to remember to edit out the duplicate player tomorrow.

This is Alex's opening from the 5/8/91 game:

https://youtu.be/ebs3RCC5VZw

He should do that more often to explain how the QF round works and especially to name the viewing options.

Without fail every tournament has posters on message boards thinking they have figured out some loophole for those playing in later QF games or wondering why those contestants wagered too much or too little.

Only 1 hit for "Nuns on the Run" in the Archive, from 2003. I'd have to assume it gets at least 1 more hit sometime before that, right?

Very nice work of the writers to make it a "complete the lyric" clue rather than a "name the song" clue, since it would be cruel but necessary to neg the single-diddy title under which the song was originally recorded, just because the clue specified the Manfred Mann version.

edit: Wikipedia says that was the original title, but I can't find any documentation of that. I still think it's good to have phrased the clue as asking for a lyric instead of the title, so that Bob didn't have to be ruled wrong. edit again: I found an apparent re-release single of the Exciters' original with the title as "Do-Wah Diddy."

Is the clue entered exactly as written as well?

I assume you were posting about "the" instead of "there" in the quoted lyrics, but in case you weren't (since that's fixed), yes. I would have used one more comma and a hyphen, but they didn't.

Pic of Andre DuVoisin posted previously. Now is the time to share this video of him that has a previous board mention: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8s8mtfpmszQ

That completes what I have of the 1991 CC. It would be great if the missing clues from F2 ever turn up as that will be all that keeps the CC from being completely finished a couple of days from now.

Amy should now make the Archive complete in having all the CC players in it.

Anyone know if Dave Ellis (now the 2nd one in the Archive) is related to Keri Ellis? Yeah, I'm sure they're the only two Ellises in Michigan. :)

I added 5/12/92: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=6743

Nick Jungman, Glen Cotton and Chris Montplaisir

All College Championship games are now in the archive and only one incomplete as far as I know.

If anyone is willing to track down Scott Gillispie, Andre DuVoisin or Tim Lakin to see if they have the missing portion of 1991 F2 then go for it.

I'm going to take a break from tourney games to input 11 regular play games that have come my way recently.

Now we need the even-numbered games for Bruce. Bruce made the FJ! wager many advocate for in a lock situation.

Listening to Bruce was like hearing Billy Baxter again.

They don't eat tar in Hawaii? Fixed, thanks.

Good thing you did it right away. Sony copyright nazis have already blocked it.
