Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was spoiled, came to watch anyway because maybe the spoiler was a lie. That was a fun game to watch! I WTF'd the wagering initially too, but after doing a bit of reading and running the numbers, James did what he had to do to give himself the best chance of survival. (I'm honestly more confused by J...

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Oh, God. Pancreatic is awful. Stage 4 cancer is awful. The combination... God. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. If anyone has the resources to bar no holds... but I've seen it before, and in someone younger and with the time/money to go full throttle, and he still lost. This is like a punch to ...

DAAAAAA BEARS, so you're not alone, TPH.

When dude said "Yuletide", I maaaaaaay have lost my cool for a moment and yelled, "THERE ARE FOUR LETTERS!" at the screen.

Teased out FJ! through stereotyping more than lounging or any particular play.

Got the Pearl Harbor half, didn't get the second half.

But the more important question: what did Maggie say/do that had Nicole in stitches?

I knew I should have picked Indiana over Chattanooga.

I feel like he got tongue-tied between 1900 and 9000 and decided to roll with the 19000.

I think we were all :o :shock: :D at that, though.

Re: Adult online tests coming in Jan 2016

For the first time (other than the original year of 2006, when there were widespread computer problems and all Eastern people were allowed to retake the Pacific version), my schedule will require me to take the "wrong" test - Central when I live in Eastern. I know that such things are ultimately un...

Your eye-roll is seconded, from someone who is definitely female and lives in a home decorated with sports memorabilia. (Granted, almost all women's basketball, but I love me my sports.)

Re: Matt Jackson: A Profile

The best case scenario for a J! contestant on social media is to have complete strangers tell them they're hot.

Everything about you will be analyzed, mocked, commented upon, and half-assedly posted about by utter, utter idiots.

Re: Thursday, October 8, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

What was the clue/answer on Matt's DD that Alex said "we'll except that"? I thought it was a four letter word category, and it sounded like Matt's response was a three syllable word (Nen-e-a ?).
