    It was a two-thirds game where Sam could have won on a triple stumper by betting zero. Another oddity is third place having exactly half as much as the leader and second place having exactly 2/3 as much as the leader going into FJ!. 42/59 here.

    this was an easy fj today.

    Before looking.. They all should get it right.

    @vj, were you surprised at the ts on Edward VIII? I always thought his abdication to be with Wallis Simpson in 1936 was common knowledge in trivia. I wonder if the clue contained her name if they would have gotten it. We’ll never know.

    My feelings weren’t hurt too bad over the Queens borough ts in New York though.

      Yes, I was surprised at Edward VIII, but I was just freakin’ amazed that none of them knew Vermont was the 14th state. I thought that was common knowledge period, (but I also thought that it was common knowledge that Rhode Island was one of the original 13 LOL!)

      That and Mike’s revelation that he thought Trebek was the most important person in the world when he was a kid reminded me of the Henry Hudson FJ fail. When I was a kid, I thought he was the most important person ever because everything from NJ to VT was named after him.

      PS – my feelings weren’t hurt at all over the Lord Byron miss. :):)

    I didn’t know at first, but when I saw the actual response, I TOTALLY understood (Duh, Goliath.)!
