Re: "A Big Statistic" for $400 poll (10/14/19 spoiler)

I figured it had to be someone who actually goes out to sea, but couldn't come up with something specific. I thought of lifeguard, but dismissed it.

Mario Bros. should have been ruled incorrect. The clue was asking for the game, and Mario Bros. came out in 1983 and didn't feature Peach (Toadstool).

This game is a draw for the Intermediate Form of Shore's Conjecture. The second-place player bet "small." --Bob
$13,000 out of $13,000 is big in my book.

I assume they were going for stegosaurus instead of ankylosaurus, hence the pause and "we'll accept that"?
