    btw, I meant to mention that we used to work with a realtor down here whose name is Pius. Also, on the Nickname site, there’s a poker champ, a philologist and a politician, all named Pius, and I have a list of the real first names of the Popes who chose that name. Fun stuff to know :)

    I know they only wanted the name today, but here’s one time in 1991 that Pius XII was an FJ triple stumper and, wow, they didn’t give the players much to go on that time.

    THE 1950S: He died October 9, 1958 at Castel Gandolfo

    This shouldn’t have been a very tough final but still there were a few triple stumpers in the main round. How did these guys not know about nelson mandela? Johannasburg should have been the correct answer. Did alex misspoke about that?

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, Alex gave the right answer. Johannesburg isn’t one of the 3 South African capitals and it was one of the wrong answers given. The other wrong answers were the judicial and administrative capitals. (LINK)

    For sure I expected a Triple Get but what do I know from predictions! Such an easy FJ!

    I’m surprised that this FJ was a triple stumper.
    The clue about MOMA wasn’t quite correct, it isn’t on 5th Ave, it’s between 5th and 6th Aves.
