Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

Played my opponent for the 4th time yesterday. Got my 3rd 8(5) in those 4 matches. Granted, the other two times I had gotten that score he had forfeited, but still, just a little statistical quirk.

Also, I laughed at the MCWA for Q5. Took me a sec to even realize there was one.

Re: J! in the Media

Someone on here mentioned that they do crosswords on the Shortyz app (sorry, don't remember who), and that got me hooked. Just did the Jonesin' Crosswords from May 2, and 59-across is J! related.

Re: Thursday, April 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I've only been able to watch 2 games of his run, much to my chagrin. But what blows my mind is that after 11 games, his average score is close to the previous single game record. Where would his average fall on the one-day winnings rankings (taking his scores out)? 3rd?

Unbelievable.

Re: Tuesday, April 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Due to a slate of evening classes this semester, I can rarely watch. Tonight was the only night this week I didn't have a commitment and could watch, and the first time I've been able to see James play. Wow. I figured this was the first major record that would go down based on his wagers so far and ...

Re: Sony Reportedly Searching For Alex's Replacement

J!'s twitter account retweeted a pic of Ben Mankiewicz, a name mentioned a few times above, and Alex behind the podium.

Re: Thursday, February 28, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I felt genuinely bad for Alan upon seeing his reaction after the FJ reveal. He looked extremely upset at himself, and I wonder if it was because he knew it and couldn't get it in time or if it was the wager and keeping the other teams so close. I hope it doesn't (didn't) influence his play in the ne...

Re: $0 FJ Wager Poll

I put other because who am I to know what mood I'd be in? If it was my first game, I'd probably put the right answer down just to calm nerves going into game 2. Game 4 or 5? Though doubtful I'd be in that situation, I might be feeling spunky and throw down a joke answer. Who knows?

I, on the other hand, missed the fact they were asking about two television shows. For some reason, I was thinking one was radio. So did I, until just reading your post! Weird. I also said Ryan Seacrest, but with more time to consider it he's clearly too late to be correct. Considering I was on WWT...
