Re: Friday, February 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I would advise addressing the guy who came on a Jeopardy! message board and claimed to have contacted Sony with the demand that Roger Craig's winnings be taken away because of poor performance, which is an action so ludicrous that I struggle to imagine the headspace that would generate it. Roger Cr...

Re: Friday, February 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

And incidentally, here's Roger's own comments on the matter: Speaking of errors, wish I could have a mulligan on one of those DDs! :) I was about 1-2 seconds from pulling Winnipeg. I got to the province after all! but just couldn't do it. Edema I knew, of course, (i was pre-med a long time ago) but...

Re: Friday, February 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Roger Craig's pathetic BotD finals game play Does not compute. Please explain. Roger was leading Brad Rutter in game 1's DJ round, $10,200 to $9600, when Roger decided to foolishly make a TDD bet, and he missed it. (No sane J! player would EVER do such a thing in that situation; I know I wouldn't, ...

Re: Friday, February 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I hope this film gives you some insights as to why I think the way I do about sports, and by extension, J!. There. I fixed it for you. I happen to personally know some people from Cleveland, and their brains are still intact and they still have the ability to tell reality from fantasy. Brian DON"T ...

Re: Friday, February 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Besides, while being on the show was super fun, I am entirely happy that the tweets about my appearance, facebook requests from complete strangers, and messages to my work email asking me out are going to be over. Of course, them being replaced with messages about what a dumb b-tch I am isn't fun e...

Re: Wednesday, December 3, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have no idea why the DC High Schools Athletic Association calls themselves a state organization. That does not make them a state. It only serves to confuse the general public, which I why I revived this thread and offered further proof that I and that day's contestants were tricked on this FJ clu...

Which means it i sn't one, right? If you want to get technical about it, you are correct, but extreme technicality is not what those contestants that day wanted to deal with. Because of the link I just provided, most people would think D.C. is a state, because it's on the U.S. mainland, and the clu...

Re: Wednesday, December 3, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That FJ clue almost ranks right up there with the infamous $2 bill clue of November 22, 2011 in terms of trickery and chicanery by the J! staff. As a further example of this, I offer this link to a Washington, D.C. high school's basketball championship. Notice that on this page that it refers to th...

Re: Tuesday, March 31, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

What happened to David Siegel? He lost $800 on a Daily Double because he didn't say "what is." Four Daily Doubles and two Final Jeopardys later, he came in second in the Tournament of Champions. Second by $1301, which is less than the $1600 turnaround that would have occurred had Siegel not made th...

Huzzah. Pretty much sums it up. Nice last second save on the DD phrasing. Worth 14k there and more in FJ. If I'd messed up the phrasing, that would have cost me $28,000 out of my final total. Almost unbelievable. Can anybody guess the poet I was thinking of before I got to Angelou? Michael, you alm...

Re: Friday, February 20, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

What makes you smile, mbclev? What makes you laugh ? Any joke that does not involve mocking another person's physical or mental problems. If I joke about my own problems, it's okay, but not about another person's similar problems. As I said in 2013, my father taught me that jokes about another pers...

I missed the part where Christina became our new expansion pro sports team and made it into the postseason. You should know, Robert, about our sports teams' failures when we, and everybody else in the world, expected the team to win a championship or move on, and that is the case with Christina; sh...
