    I didn’t watch the episode, so was there a further explanation on the “NBA Team Names” category? I’m confused because “Thunderball” is not an NBA team name. It contains an NBA team name, but “Thunderball” itself is not the name of an NBA team.

      Hi Jose, the full name of the category was “Starts with an NBA Team Name.” I just shortened it for the DD part because the whole name was already in the Round 2 category list.

    We all have our pet peeves, and I guess Number One on my list is illogic.

    Don Quixote, eh? Why would a novel written in Spanish need a Spanish translation?

    • VJ says:

      Hi Tom, how have you been? I guess she misunderstood the clue, that’s all. I missed a crucial word in a couple of clues today myself

      Anyway, the first line of Don Quixote will probably never show up in an FJ clue because it has “la Mancha” in it.

    A tale of two cities. one of my favorite books. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Character is charles evermont or darnay who keeps trying to do the right thing and gets into trouble. He was tried in court for the crimes he committed against his family but was framed. Still a great book. This was in an episode of wishbone a pbs kids show. Do you remember it, vj?

    • VJ says:

      @Lou, nope, I don’t recall ever seeing that one. I did see Jekyll, Jekyll, Hyde on Arthur though :)

    Two more days left to go to the Galapagos with Alex. “You gotta be in it to win it” (an old slogan of the New Jersey lottery but a true one)
