    Peter irritated me; he was so slow picking the next clue.
    Not sure what Peter was thinking for his FJ question. Newport is the capital of which state????

    This looks like it was an OK game, though only one got FJ right, but what else is new?

    Interesting: Yesterday, David finished in 3rd with $8,200>bet it all>missed FJ>lost

    Today, John was in 3rd with $8,200 > bet small>solo FJ get>lost. Such is luck (or the lack thereof).

    Bible Books in Pop Music seems like an interesting category.

    Anyone notice the Dubai question (answer) cited the desert classic as being on the PGA TOUR, but in reality it’s the European tour.

    Anyone had to watch yesterdays show replay today because of election night??

    • Cece says:

      Moi. But I didn’t have to watch it, I changed the channel

    • EricS says:

      To be clear, it was far from election night.
      Although HRC “won” last night, it was a farce. She won in open primaries in deeply red states.
      It’s just more Koch money at work.

    Pretty difficult fj today….

    Gonna say 1 or 2 get this one..

    I think that John’s $500 wager is a smart bet, because he didn’t want to fall below Peter if he misses and wagers for the lockout, which he did and John must have realized it.

    Did anyone note the answers and questions in the category having to do with dogs (and literature?)? One of the questions had to do with a novel (?) that I might like to read, but I was cooking and wasn’t able to write it down.

    • VJ says:

      @Selena, they played the Doggone Good Writing category from bottom to top:

      $2000 – Described as “a lion-like creature”, Pilot is this man’s dog in “Jane Eyre”

      $1600 – Good things happen “because of” this store-found dog in a novel by Kate DiCamillo

      $1200 – In 1838 he began publishing “Zoology of the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle”

      $800 – In Greek poetry, a faithful dog named Argos was this wanderer’s pet

      The last clue in the round is the last triple stumper mentioned in the recap before the 2 Years Ago Clue.

    49/61 here. Rachel should have wagered less than $400 to keep John out of contention and win on a TS. Because she didn’t do that, JOhn underwagered.
