Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Horrible news indeed... and now makes watching the previously recorded programs sad and quite melancholy.

Re: Thursday, January 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

To follow up to my earlier query as to why the Boston CBS affiliate aired a repeat tonight, I sent an email to the station and got this reply within thirty minutes... a pretty quick response, IMHO. Dear Brendan, I apologize for the error. The secondary Jeopardy was accidentally recorded instead of t...

Re: Thursday, January 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Any idea why the Boston CBS affiliate --- Channel 4 --- ran a "Jeopardy!" repeat tonight?

Very weird.

Re: Thursday, March 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

FJ was an instaget for me... probably because I'm a history geek.

Was this the first time the tiebreaker's been used? Interesting to see.

And anyone in the know care to share when was the last time something like this happened on "Jeopardy!"?

Hey guys... haven't posted in a long, long time because... well, nothing seemed too out-of-the-world to comment upon. Until tonight. Um... wow. That was an ending, eh? I instantly got the answer, as I'm sure a lot of boardies here did.... but Tibet? And anyone in the know care to share when was the ...

Re: Monday, January 23, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm surprised that Sean apparently didn't dispute him not getting the answer correct on the question concerning the Unification Church. He said the Moonies... I'm not sure if that's considered an insulting term or not, but my wife and I agreed it would be like "Jeopardy!" looking for an answer that ...

Cross-posted from another thread... The last time I got teary-eyed from "Jeopardy!" was four years ago, when I was defeated during my second appearance. Until tonight. What a woman, what a game, what courage... I loved Alex's classy tribute at the end, but I was hoping that they would flash the addr...

Preach it. If she had bet wiser, she would have won... and I had no idea on the FJ question.

But I liked her as a contestant --- "perky" comes to mind, and she looked like she was having a lot of fun. Which means a lot.

Boy, I feel like a dope... for some reason I thought "contiguous" used in this context meant two states together... i.e., California and Oregon.

D'oh!

Re: Friday, April 22, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I got FJ correct just by thinking, okay, who was off-the-wall famous and kind of looney in this time frame for the UK?

Best answer I could come up with was Lord Byron.

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than smart.

Sometimes.

Yep, I choked up a bit when Alex did. Good job, mom!

And librarians rule. Margaret was impressive indeed.

As to FJ, I visualized a map of the Canadian/American border, and stopped when I got to Idaho. Made sense. :-)

Congrats to Ken, for proudly representing our home state of New Hampshire!

I imagine he's a strong presence in court.

I goofed on FJ, overlooking the 100 Years War part of the clue and instantly assumed, "King of America."

Been a while since I've come by the JBoard, and I just had to stop by to make sure my wife and I weren't seeing things.

So it was an April Fool's Day show. Was this a first?

Eventually after some thinking, came up with Brunei... which was wrong. :D

Check the thread for Tuesday. Invited back due to a confusing FJ.
Thanks! Explains it all...
