    They had three sets of two countries. The correct answer was Nigeria (Albuja) and Netherlands (Amsterdam).

    I missed that bird's nest soup question too.

    Who knew that someone would put an actual bird's nest in a soup?

    Four contestants split $100k tonight. It was sponsored by Nike, so they also won a pair of shoes.

    Apparently if you swipe up with two fingers on the main screen over and over it gives you an extra life. It gave my wife two.

    Great question tonight about the US beating Finland (Not the USSR) for the Gold Medal in 1980.

    I've made it to Q12 five times now. Still never won.

    This is driving me nuts.

    I went out on question 6 or 7 yesterday, but watched the rest to see if I knew them and of course I did...though Question 12 would've tripped me up. Uncle Phil...who knew he was the voice of Cartoon villains.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Wow, 5 times is impressive. My guess is you’ll be a multiple winner by year’s end. I’ve made it to Q12 three times and won once. Yesterday was really frustrating, made it to 10 in the early game and 11 in the evening. Couldn’t close.

    “Morbido” in Italian translates to “soft”. Or, something you expect from a pillow or Mormons in the NBA.

    Tom Chambers did not act very Mormon throughout his career, so solid reference by the host.

    I don't play often, but I played the first two games this evening, getting booted both times when I had the correct answer, shortly after which they stopped the game. Was unable to join in the third attempt. I thought HQ had gotten past the buggy early games--apparently not.
