I think "Bosox Injection" was "Things associated with the Boston Red Sox".
I was thinking the same.

On the July 21st episode: Three $50K winners. Not bad at all.

I remember seeing Steve Schirripa on the version of Pyramid hosted by Donny Osmond.

About 31 seconds. That is about how long the contestant and Chris Sullivan had to get "Things That Are Blessed" for $100,000. Strahan's "a sneezing person" was the perfect clue to go along with all of the others given. I especially liked "holy water" and "this marriage". (How about "this mess"?)

I would have said "a queen's head" and "a king's head" for "Things With Crowns", though that last word wasn't needed on the show. I thought of "a stubbed toe" for "Things That Are Painful (Hurt)", and by the time I came up with saying "their way" in a sad voice for "Things People Lose" that pyramid had already been conquered, with better clues I admit. :)

Incidentally, that last subject in the first game's second Winner's Circle tripped up William Shatner on The $20,000 Pyramid, but no chairs were thrown tonight.

Tonight was fun to watch.  Carolyn breezed through her first Winner's Circle, but couldn't come up with "A sneezing person" to add $100,000 to her total.  Still, $61,500 is a nice day's work.

Matt and Katy were equally matched in game 2.  It's great to see them both win $50,000, especially with deliberate approaches in the last subjects of their Winner's Circles.  Also, for the first time since June 30th, someone finally won the Mystery 7.  Katy won with Jamie and now she's going to the Bahamas (though not on a Disney Cruise, like I will).

Math: Add, subtract, multiply, divide
1970s: "All In The Family", "The Price Is Right" debuts, "Wheel Of Fortune" debuts, disco, Nixon's resignation
Pizza: Pepperoni, cheese, sauce, mushrooms
Spots: Leopard, Cheetah, Dalmatian
"Penny": "I'm a copper coin worth 1 cent".
Hurt: Appendicitis, Arthritis, someone's feelings
Hosts: Jerry Springer, Maury Povich, Steve Wilkos, Johnny Carson
Lose: Your mind, your keys, your virginity, your turn

Total won tonight: $161,500. Season total: $867,500
Someone got to play for $100,000, but lost it.
The "Mystery 7" was won at least once.
"The Sopranos" categories were kind of dumb.

On the July 28th episode: Jay Pharoah: "You ride on it."  A llama, of course. :)

I know there's the pressure of time and the excitement and all, but the words in the main game would be easier to get if the players would remember the subject!. For example: things that end with the letters "AMA". Tragedy?? Horse?? Carriage?

Jay and Jeff Ross can be pretty funny, but they are nowhere near the best Pyramid players ever. I will say that Jeff got better over time.

For "Things That Are Magical", how about "a wand" or "a Disney kingdom"?
Good idea to say "Saturday (things)" and "Sunday (brunch)" for "Weekend Activities". I came up with "Discount Nordstrom clothes" and "a hanging towel" for "Things on Racks".

The contestant gave practically perfect clues for "Types of Tape": "Scotch" and "duct", and kudos to the same contestant for "Denzel" for "Famous People Named Washington". And although it wasn't necessary tonight, I can clearly imagine Dick Clark saying "his eye patch" and "his wooden leg" for "Things A Pirate Uses".

And finally, "Things That are Funny": Pete Holmes. I agree. :)   Especially entertaining second half-hour with great contestants.

"Things that are Magical" had a trap and the contestant fell into it.  That was a downer to watch.

"Weekend Things" was tough, but doable.  Saying "Saturday" or "Sunday"-related items repeatedly might have made something click with a receiver.

"Things on a rack" was a tough one.  All I could think of was "hanging clothes," "hanging towels," "pool balls," and "medieval prisoners." 

The second half was great to watch.  Pete Holmes was a pretty good player and he won $50,000 for both contestants, including the Mystery 7 for Siobhan.

The show will take a break on August 4th, in favor of the CMA Fest; it will return on August 11th.  Hopefully the winning continues!

I'm thinking a Disney Kingdom would've been buzzed for describing magical.

Things that are magical- A sorcerer, a wand, a flying carpet
For weekend things I would've used things with Saturday or Sunday in them like reading the Sunday newspaper, Sunday food shopping, watching Saturday Night Live, etc.

Using Google to search for “magical” (without quotes) gives two definitions right away. Definition two: beautiful or delightful in such a way as to seem removed from everyday life. I would argue that Disney kingdoms are definitely designed in such a way. Also, the example sentence given is “It was a magical evening of pure nostalgia.” So it seems that things do not actually have to possess “magic powers” to be described as magical considering this definition.

Chameleon and autumn leaves would've been great for Things that Change Color, I also thought of a mood ring.

Things that spread- Butter, mayonnaise, the news, gossip, germs

They also showed Things Used at Night just before time ran out- Your bed, your sleep medication

I noticed that there was no “tell us a little about yourself” segment for any of the contestants, yet there was time to explain the Winner’s Circle rules. Also, I liked how calmly Chris Sullivan played the game. (Was he a little too calm?)

What was the subject for the first half-hour’s Mystery 7?

I thought of “a contagious disease” for “Things That Spread”, and “litmus paper” for “Things That Change Color”. (My scientific mind at work.) The chameleon clue was excellent.
