Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Coming into this late: I was very surprised to see Jeopardy choosing Aaron Rodgers to be a guest host. If they want to go the football route, this guy has much more game show hosting experience. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/nfl-insider-notes-wink-martindale-deserves-more-head-coaching-buzz-s...

Re: Monday, January 11, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For the few people still here that know me well, I got this weird feeling that Ken Jennings or at least the clue writers were sending shout outs to me. :lol: I'm referring to "Nighthawks" and the Final Jeopardy category (great clue which I missed). I'm currently writing clues for a tournament of cha...

Geez, folks. It was a JOKE. Get it?

Re: Tuesday, December 8, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILER

I almost never post here anymore, but I do have to drop in and say that I pre-called the $2,000 clue in "Live Albums" tonight. When the category was shown, I turned to my wife and said, "well after all these years Peter Frampton has got to be a $2,000 clue now". :lol:

Re: OBIT: Alex Trebek

I may still get to be on Jeopardy someday, but sadly I will never get the chance to be on Jeopardy hosted by Alex Trebek. RIP. I find it hard to believe that markets that might otherwise pre-empt Jeopardy on Christmas would do so this year for Alex's final show. The interest (and potential advertisi...

Re: Hugh Downs dies at 99, hosted Concentration

Concentration with Hugh Downs was the first game show I remember watching.

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I know nothing about soccer, but I do know that Emirates appears as the sponsor for practically every international sporting event I watch (tennis and golf). I was surprised that I got a two for that one because my record in sports questions is pretty good and my opponent would not have known that I...

Re: Learned League 85 - Official Thread

I've meant to post here about this season but keep forgetting about it, so I'll post it all now. Day 1: I had to face (in Laguna B) a friend of mine that I had referred into the league last season. She's a former Kids' Week Champion and it was unfortunate that we played each other this game because ...

Re: Reretaken Down

I have no stake in this discussion or even a keen interest in it, but I will say that whether an episode (game) of Jeopardy is shown in a market has no bearing on whether sharing a copy violates copyright law. In 1999, the network showing "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (I think it was the WB then) postp...

Re: J! in the Media

Perhaps that is why she is on Facebook now. Time to take the test again (can people that took the test in January take the test now on the rolling basis?)

Re: Learned League 84

I WAGed on Bryan Ferry for the mime, thinking that it was a logical guess of a British rocker of the early '70s. I considered George Harrison because of his cheeky sense of humor and appearances with Monty Python people, but thought that he would be too famous (of course Bowie is pretty famous). I w...

If someone can confirm this, I might be optimistic enough again to try to get on the show. :shock:

Re: Learned League 84

I got five out of six right, missing the Ramones question. I knew the Paul McCartney question because I knew he recorded "Mary Had A Little Lamb". By the way, McCartney recorded that as a protest because the BBC had banned playing his previous single, "Give Ireland Back to the Irish". Based on the s...

Re: Learned League 84

I'm doing badly enough in B league without making it worse by committing a rare sin (for me anyway) of not reading a question carefully enough. I answered "Star Trek" instead of "Khan" and "Spock". It cost me a win, although fortunately I got a tie, leaving me still on the wrong side of relegation (...

Re: Learned League 84

My opponent gave me three points on the "Mack the Knife" question? Really? Obviously, he doesn't know me very well. I gave him a zero for it because he has a great score in pop music questions. OK, it's only my fourth best category but three points? I know I shouldn't complain because it was a givea...

Re: Learned League 84

Regarding Robert Johnson, all I could think of was this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Johnson but I thought that the myth about his death happened in Mississippi. Different Robert Johnson.
