  1. Favorite Commercials

    I like seeing some of the old Geico commercials. I went to go vote, but I didn't see either of my two favorites: Kraken The golf announcers wondering if the "9-iron is going to be enough club". Peter Pan Peter obnoxiously commenting at the reunion: "You don't look a day over 70. Am I right?"
  2. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I saw the movie Jersey Boys and remembered that each band member narrated a segment. How is Jerry Lewis (of Dean Martin and) a bottom of the category clue?
  3. What are... Jeopardy! experiences?

    I'm right-handed, and my immediate reaction would be use my left hand for the buzzer. My left hand is my glove hand in baseball, and if I'm going to hold something and squeeze in to catch the timing light, that's the hand. If the buzzer were on the podium, I'd use my right hand to slap it because that's more of a throwing motion. It all goes back to baseball with me.
  4. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Mon and Wed were hopeless for me, and I flipped a coin on Tue and was wrong. Fortunately, Thu and Fri were both good, so that's 2/5 with an asterisk.
  5. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I ran the song lyrics category. Throw in a baseball category, and I would've lost respectably to John. My compliments on an extremely well-played game to @j5cochran! That FJ was brutal.
  6. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I had Orioles, slider, and vertebrae. In the fictional theme park category, I was disappointed we didn't get Itchy and Scratchy Land "The Violentist Place on Earth" or Duff Gardens, home of the Seven Duffs: Sleazy, Queasy, Surly, Edgy, Tipsy, Dizzy, and Remorseful. Heh.
  7. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    4/5. Missed Monday, but got the asterisk on Friday.
  8. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Dave was irritating. I can forgive his two instances of ending his answer with "Alex", but not the diamond drawing over his name, the horrific act of board hopping at the bottom of multiple categories, or the pompous "let's give the people what they came here for" DD comment.
  9. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    The Wheel of Jeopardy category was fun. I still watch Wheel on occasion and will watch most anything on GSN. I had rotator cuff and Joe Cool. I'm a Peanuts fan and even bought an album of Peanuts music done by jazz and blues artists (the Joe Cool theme recorded by B.B. King is very cool). Jessica is bright and appealing. I'm rooting for her.
  10. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I had zero clue on FJ. I would have to do some serious studying of Literature (among other subjects) if I were ever on the show. I likely would've run the games category had they uncovered the clue at the top (I had the DD of Go). Decades of reading GAMES magazine came in handy on that one.
  11. What do you notice about sunlight? There's only a few hours/day of civil twilight there and the rest of the time should be daylight. I remember when I was in Aruba being struck by how close the sun seemed to be and by how different the angle was from anything I'd seen before. The sun was noticeably more overhead than in Chicago.
  12. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Based on how the question was worded, if the answer had been a river, I think they would have just said "river" in the clue. By using the alternate term "waterway", they gave away that it was some other long, skinny body of water. Canal fit the description. They frequently drop this kind of hint in FJ clues, and I suspect it is so that we have multiple ways to get to the answer.
  13. Season 35 Final Jeopardy Contest

    Eh, 2/5, but one asterisk for the Gipper.
  14. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    I had FJ due to the Spanish name, Roosevelt, and the use of the term "waterway". That ruled out rivers, which left canals. QED. I ran the first round Ran category and had the Olivier TS.
  15. Jeopardy! Season 35 (2018-2019)

    Jennifer Lawrence was my third choice for Monday's FJ (after Keira Knightley and Emma Stone). D'oh! This will not embiggen my FJ contest score. Ronald Reagan for Tuesday's FJ was an instaget. I'm almost caught up from two weeks of shows. I loved the In the Band, Confused Lyrics, and Top 40 categories. Definitely a sweet spot for me. What's with all the categories about new words? They've had a spate of them lately, and it's getting old. Or maybe I'm just hangry.
