  1. If the numbers are correct, a very risky bet by Diane. Even if she erred by 1.000, she bet 1 buck too much. 8.999 should have been the max. WHY would she risk her runaway??

  2. I’m a Pisces, but have never even looked for it in the sky, much less heard any star names in the constellation. Nobody got the answer, but I am eager to see tonight how Diane amassed so much money in DJ!

    • She got 11.200 with both DDs in DJ, plus she also got the DD in J with 1.200, so a total of 12.400 with all 3 DDs correct. But what the [email protected]@ was she thinking in FJ, when she had a runaway?? Had Katherine bet everything and been right, Diana would have lost by 1.000 bucks. The ghost of Cliff Clavin…..Dominating the game with primarily correct DDs and then risking to throw the game away??? If she keeps playing that way she won’t string 4 wins together but crash tomorrow or Monday.

    Did Alex show us an example of “Canadian English” today? He said “You have twelve hundred dollars more than her at the moment.” One wouldn’t say “than ‘her DOES’ at the moment.” Alex should have said “than SHE at the moment.”

    • While you are grammatically absolutely correct, you can hear in colloquial English very often the “her” version, very much depending where you are and who is doing the talking. You certainly would hardly hear the “her” version in England.And Alex is French Canadian, he grew up in a bilingual household.And even the English don’t always use “Queen’s English” except in an official capacity or at an official event. I get BBC and ITV and sometimes they show “debates” in the House of Commons and House of Lords. You would be surprised about not only the vocabulary but also about the grammatical “murder” of a relatively simple language.:):):)

    As a retired English teacher, I used to be somewhat of a stickler, like you are now. I gave up on this because I found it tedious. I try to just avoid awkward phrasing. I would have said “You have $1200 more than she does. I also say “everyone get their coats and come in.” I got extra credit for correcting the teacher in 8th grade.

  5. It don’t mean a thing if you ain’t got that swing.

  6. Jim G…. for tonight maybe more appropriate … It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that STRING…

    • I think you may have something there, and thanks for replacing my incorrect “you” with the correct “it”. (Thought I’d beat the jazz purists to it! 🎷🎼)

  7. I was a bit surprised that they accepted, “What is Daylight Savings Time?” as a response today. They’re usually such sticklers, that I thought they’d only accept “Daylight Saving Time” (no “s”) here.

    I wonder if anybody has ever had a runaway going into final and ended up losing the game during AT’s 32 years as host.

  9. freddie leonard | June 14, 2018 at 10:09 pm |

    Sorry, I meant 34 years

    I guess when they announce the FJ category. I got it right once – Thanksgiving 2017 – English Lit – Oliver Twist

    You could argue that she overbet yesterday, too. She should’ve wagered just enough to cover her lead, $6,801, I think. Smart lady, but wagering could prove to be her undoing.

    I got locked into the “two lines” part of the clue and guessed Gemini. Thought I had it,,,
