    Surprised Joel came up with “In Cold Blood.” As vj wrote in her recap that was in 1966. I thought for sure with Oklahoma in the clue and 1940 that this would be a triple solve. John, I blew my triple instaget prediction. I guess Joel was nervous. During the game he seemed to be a solid player.

      well, as i said: there’s always a party spoiler. at least more often than not. i don’t get it either. and he was no slouch during the game. ok and the year should have made that one of the easiest fj clues in recent weeks.

    aggie got real lucky, WTH was with the 7,800 bet??? had joel been right she would have lost by 200 had he played for a tie (which happened frequently this season). she did not guard against mariusz, so…????

    see, jacob, just when you think this MUST be a no-brainer there is always somebody to spoil the party. this time the leader to boot!


    (even though we will have j on thu & fri..)

    p.s.: the fj clue from 2 years ago: grrrrrr…i would have needed only the first part of THAT clue!

    Easy FJ

      yes, i absolutely agree. however, joel might think differently. 600 more and he would have had a runaway (at least for a tie). so close but no cigar….
