Bastet January 9, 2020 Share January 9, 2020 Thank goodness for the college football category, because until they got into that I wasn't doing too well in the first game. Running that seemed to give me a boost, and I did pretty well with the rest of it. I got FJ, I got the nitwit and Le Monde TS (and I'm surprised both of those stumped them) and the "Good Day, Sir" TS, even though that one was a total guess based on the wording of the clue as I've never seen the film and never knew where the quote came from, and overall did a better job than last night of keeping up with their pace. I was hoping whomever answered "I'm walking here!" would do it justice, and Ken did. I loved James giving him props, and then Ken's delivery on "I think I broke my buzzer" was perfect. They were also all fun joking about the "all in" gesture being James's intellectual property (the only time that gesture hasn't annoyed the hell out of me). And James telling Ken his FJ art was facing the wrong way. I really enjoy the camaraderie among these three. Maybe if I watched The Crown, I wouldn't have found the clips used in the clues ridiculously long (because the film clips in the second round didn't bug me), but I don't, so I did. In game two, I was back to sometimes being slow to spit out the answer before one of them did, only got the Napoleon half of FJ, and the TS all also stumped me. I guess one more drink really does make a difference. But I still did okay, especially in the DJ round; I loved the 20-letter words category! Ken apologizing when he swept in to take the points by cleaning up a near-miss guess was kind of funny. Brad missing the 22 DD was quite surprising. And I wondered if they were going to subtract game two's negative score from game one's score for his match total, but it wouldn't have mattered, so they probably didn't give it much consideration. I hope he has a better match tomorrow, to keep things as interesting as possible (and to let him save face). I think it will be a challenge for him to shake off his third-place performance in two consecutive matches, but maybe it will also light a fire. 8 Link to comment
