Clue of the Day

FYI, we don’t reveal the answer outright but hint at it. It is okay to give possible wrong answers.

We also need to be mindful that the first 11 words of our comments will show up on the homepage sidebar. So prefacing any hint with a short observation is the best way to go.

All comments and predictions on the CotD posts are deleted after about a week, so be fearless!

A whole row: These clues come from the $2,000 row in the last round of the match played on 7/1/2003.

    GW actually lived in three different houses in two different cities during his presidency. The first was at 3 Cherry Street; the second was the Alexander Macomb house. Both were in Manhattan. However, in 1790, he moved to what was known as “The President’s House.” Since the FJ clue includes the construction of the White House, which began in 1792, New York is eliminated — even though two of Washington’s executive homes were there.

    Today is the 75th birthday of Bobby Rydell, who came from this city where American Bandstand also started out.

    Besides his hit records, Bobby was Hugo Peabody in the “Bye Bye Birdie” film.

    Do ya think President Washington was fed a steady diet of cheese-steak sandwiches and desserts made w/ cream cheese while he resided there?!

    John Adams lived there also until the White House was built. It’s more infamous today as the home of the Liberty Bell, the Flyers, the 76ers, and the Eagles NFL team.

    If any contestant writes Mt. Vernon I’m going to scream.

    You have to wonder if the people there booed and threw snowballs at Santa back then.
