Re: Tuesday, June 3, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

This is where I failed. I have a pretty good idea what the Ivy League schools are, but I *always* forget UPenn is one of them - never guessed that a state university is also an Ivy. (I am correct in thinking that all "University of [State]" universities are "state universities" (and are the ones as...

What was the wording of the Neanderthal clue? There was something about it that made me think Julia's response was wrong, plus she didn't seem to believe it herself. I don't remember the exact wording, but it did make me think they were looking for a specific fossil and not a type of prehistoric hu...

Re: Friday, May 16, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Even though it was a US History FJ, we Canadians had a slight advantage, because our press got a little bit gossipy a few years back about rumours of flirtation between Condi Rice and her Canadian counterpart, Peter McKay. I'm not proud of our news media, but it's how I remembered that she was unma...

He didn't guess on edema because it was a DD.

Leszek, it's so cool that you took the time to post on this board! Good job making it to the semis! I was in high school during your original run as Jeopardy! champion and remember thinking how dorky you looked with those glasses...you seem way cooler in your middle-age!

Clarifications: Wasn't there a Rebecca, I think that was who won at least six games this season -or did she not win quite that many? And Reni Peffer - I remember she won a bunch of games, I'm sure it was at least five...

Food for thought anyway!
They both won five games.

Re: Would you bet to tie Arthur, or bet to win?

Maggie also brings it up in the green room, or at least she did when I was taping. My first tape day (the second tape day of that week), the other contestant left over from the previous day also mentioned it on the shuttle from the hotel.

What curse?
He said something at the beginning of the episode like, "Is it too soon to make Ken Jennings comparisons?" Usually it seems like the contestant loses when Alex makes these kind of comments.

Re: Wardrobe Poll

Personally I'm glad times have changed. Yeah, sometimes people takes casual to the extreme, but in general I like the fact everywhere doesn't have to look like a carbon copy. I feel the same way about Jeopardy! contestants. And this is why it's called personal style! I'm not an advocate for a stric...

I'm interested in Jerry's novel -- I like stories involving reality alteration/altering the past (effectively very similar). My elementary school was named after the pilot in the Roma disaster, Dale Mabry. A little spin around Amazon and Google turned this up: http://www.dailyherald.com/article/201...
