Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/21/2021

Think I might have squeaked one out.

I also considered jewelry as a small item whose weight could add up quickly.
I'll take a couple of pocketfuls if it gets to be too much for you.

There's a non-zero chance I'd have written "ohm". I wonder if that would be accepted these days?

Re: Who says "35" was never reported as the passing score?

When I auditioned in 1992, I was told 80% was the cutoff. When I auditioned again in 1995, they refused to answer.

Re: OBIT: Alex Trebek

I'm probably more upset about this than I have a right to be. I didn't really know him, beyond a few casual chats. But he's been on my television since I was about five years old, which was when we got our first TV (B&W, 17"). He had children late in life, but he got to see them grow to adulthood. I...

Re: Glenn Kagan Sues Sony For Age Discrimination

Aggghhh...I hate this crap. If you treat people right when you terminate them, they will never sue you. That said, Glenn always struck me as one of the good guys. He didn't treat contestants like meat. I also like Rocky, so...not sure what to think. But when someone has worked for you for three deca...

The FJ! clue had me swing a miss as I did 1964 to My Fair Lady and wrote Rex Harrison. Fortunately, that was only one strike and as soon as I finished writing I knew who to switch to for a sure-thing swing & hit.
To be fair, Audrey Hepburn could have apologized, too.

Re: Besides Ken, Brad, and James, what other contestants could be considered GOAT?

I'll throw in a vote for Mike Dupee. Also Frank Spangenburg, Jerome Vered, Dan Melia and a few others. Probably all too old now to keep up - I know I certainly am not as quick to recall as I was.

Re: Holzhauer betting for 2nd in the TOC to make more money?

I'm assuming the total prize money includes the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds, where JH could accumulate $150,000 if he achieves his average of about $75,000 per game. Then he would need over $100,000 for his 2-day final. If this is how the TOC cumulative money works (big if) then it's certainl...

The FJ! clue was an embarrassment for me as I spent the break working off LANDMARKS to never once consider anything outside the U.S. during the several minutes. Fortunately, the reveal of the clue made it easy to switch gears to match the contestants. Kinda funny, I was thinking how American-centri...

I've watched the show for many years, and I have a quick rules Q, and sorry if it may sound dumb: If there is a three-way tie at the start of Double Jeopardy!, then who gets to go first?

I just hate he had to lose when he was so close to beating Ken Jennings cash earnings record. One or two more wins, he would have passed him. Even more unusual, his loss comes one day after the fifteenth anniversary of Ken’s first game and the fifth anniversary of Julia’s loss. Hopefully James will...
