Re: WWTBAM returns to primetime

I get that it's a charity show with celebs and first responders, but how is "1.4 billion is what percent of the world's population, within 10%" a six-figure question? What's the challenge? It can't be knowing the world's population - I remember distinctly in the late 80s when I was in my tweens hea...

Re: Friday, January 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In Maggie’s spot I would have bet $9,998. I would assume the leaders would bet it all but one might hold back a dollar so that thwarts that strategy. If I hated the category I would probably bet nothing. In the lead I would absolutely bet it all. Even if I hated the category. From Maggie's spot the...

As long as the host doesn’t give their political views on the show I don’t care what they say or do in real life.
Agreed.

And as long as people don’t post political viewpoints in non-relevant threads, I don’t care what they say or do in real life.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I'd like to point out that Rodgers has not been confirmed, everybody is just going on something he said during an interview. At this point it wouldn't surprise me if this turns out to be false. It just doesn't make sense. I had the opportunity to hang out with Rodgers and a bunch of other Packers ab...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Now, Ken skipping practice? That's absolutely fine. I can't imagine getting bored of playing J!, but maybe by the 15th dress rehearsal, it gets old. Plus, if they keep using the same small set of clues that rotate every 3 or 4 taping days, it could be kinda pointless. Doing 10 shows a week is a gri...

Tommy Lasorda, longtime manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame, has died at the age of 93.
I ran into Lasorda about 25 years ago, he looked old then. Good for him for making it to 93.

And of course nice call on the PH in game 1 of the 1988 WS.

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Or maybe Ken taped 1 show a day for 30 straight days. Or perhaps he taped 30 shows in 1 day. Let’s face it, nobody here knows yet or has any clue as to how other potential hosts will do it.

Only two TS clues and I got one to complete the run in BILLBOARD.
And I'll wager you made the appropriate hand motions on the 2k clue. :o

Speaking of wagers.... well.... never mind.

I didn't know that was a "thing", so how could I "remember" it? Is this a documented "thing", or a sp...

Re: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Can we get a review of the Jeopardy rule set please?

I actually don't think Jeopardy ever publicly said anything about this. James tweet carries no official weight in this regard even though I have no doubt he was told this.

Re: Reretaken Down

In retrospect, we probably should have started the lockdown a little sooner and let it go on a little longer. But you know what they say about hindsight. Everybody knew we lifted the lockdown too early as I believe all 50 states opened before CDC guidelines suggested. But people chose the economy o...

Re: Thursday, October 14, 2004 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How'd people fare on the hockey clues? I went 5/5, but I thought the hardest one by far was the Islanders clue. Granted, Ken accidentally turned it into "name the OTHER team in New York", which should be a rebound for the brave. I'll admit, I'd NHO Bryan Trottier, but "dynasty in the early 80s" nai...
