Re: TD 437 - 2019 in Review (Bonuses and final standings revealed)

I think the Raiders ruling was correct, given today’s news: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/raiders-officially-say-goodbye-to-oakland-relocate-to-las-vegas-for-2020-and-beyond/ Oof...one week late. I asked a few friends this question (and posted it on my Facebook wall for debate). Two of them se...

Re: Wednesday, January 22, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I agree that John impressed. He knew when to stay clam, which helped immensely. It’ll be interesting to see if he can keep it going. FJ was an uncomfortable get: of the four I could name, it seemed most likely but I didn’t make the Britain connection.

I once had a 12-hour layover in Guam as part of a trip to the Philippines, and I spent much of that time driving around the island, so I knew that wasn’t the correct response.
Yay! A Qball post. Hope to see you and family in March, James.

And an interview with Stephanie Hull, who achieved the lowest score ever. https://slate.com/culture/2020/01/jeopardy-goat-worst-score-ever-stephanie-hull-interview.html Good interview.

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

Ken is the fan favorite. He lives and breathes trivia for the love of learning and would play for free. He's in Learned League, likely for the camaraderie and the beatdowns which are given and gotten. All of our favorite athletes do the same - Pete Rose would have played baseball for lunch money (w...

Oy! And I thought yesterday was painful to watch. Yeah, I really felt bad for Priscilla as she looked like she was struggling out there. Veronica wisely stayed clam while her two opponents self-destructed. FJ was easy if you knew that SA was East of the bulk of NA.

Nope, he just drifted away I suppose. Hasn't been on in nearly two years. I can't say I'm unhappy about that. I mean... should we check obits?

If Brad continues to be outplayed, my prediction is that either Ken or James will win the tournament.
That seems to be rather a safe bet. :mrgreen:

Didn't think it was possible to get Zola w/o Dreyfus, but what do I know? It's not surprising to me. The name Zola came to me right away. It took a few more seconds to get to Zola. I could see myself blanking on it under the lights. J'accuse! Going from that DJ round into the GOAT Tournament was a ...

I wonder if this will be a trial balloon for a potential re-launch of WWTBAM? I wouldn't be unhappy to see it come back and maybe not filmed in a quonset hut on the LV strip.

What an interesting start to the tourney. It was fun to see Ken's intensity and his ultimate triumph on this day. Once again, James's speed on the Before, During and After clues (which vex me no end) is truly awe-inspiring. I was particularly aggrieved over the Lewis and Clark Clifford Odets clue: R...

Yikes! This was another painful game to watch. Constitutional Amendment on Property Tax? Really? Karen is a solid champ who’s had some very good gets. Still, I haven’t been overly impressed with many of her competitors. It will be interesting to see how far her run goes and how she fares in the TOC.
