Clam on Lennon, couldn’t decide between him and McCartney for whatever reason.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

$19,200 Coryat in game 1, $23,000 in game 2. Honestly, a fair bit more than I was expecting. Even ran a couple of categories (School Days and Geo-Verse)! 1/2 on FJ, I did the same as Brad and went with Hale knowing it was incorrect, not able to remember Shoemaker-Levy in time. So either Ken sweeps o...

Missed 8 clues in J!...5 of them in Soft Words. :(

FJ came to me eventually, figured it had to be a current soccer player and Messi seemed to unlikely to have a big IG presence.

I’m enjoying Karen’s steady dominance, but getting annoyed at all the leftover clues.

Re: What Would You Ask Alex?

He showed up at my last audition unannounced and did a Q&A while the written test was being scored. I asked him what his favourite game show to host was, aside from J!. He answered To Tell the Truth, “because that was the only one where I got to sit down.”
