Re: Friday, April 3, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

You know, now that I think of it, this may have been one of the most train-wreck games of Jeopardy in a while. From the "age of consent" gaffe to confirmation/Eucharist to the questionable DD wager to the controversy at Final. Very strange, and very fascinating.

Re: Friday, April 3, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I hate to be the one to play armchair judge and say "bad call," but that's a bad call. Byelaros shouldn't have counted. On the other hand, I'd argue that Tom really should have bet to win on Wells Fargo. He was doing well in the category IIRC and had enough of a lead to go for it. So maybe it all ca...

Re: New wagering website

This currently stands as my number one Jeopardy wagering website on the internet. I mean, I have a lot of respect for K-Dubs, but the "game theory" approach is just flawed. I mean, why would you want to do things based on some theory, anyway? I mean, think of all the theories that have failed over t...

Re: TD 236: Wrestlemania (DEADLINE EXTENDED)

11:59 am or pm? I can still enter by today. 11:59 tonight. You guys have three hours left. I was apprehensive on first reading the title. I've never been into WWF, so I was happy to see that the questions were great spin-offs from wrestling. Thanks for a great TD. Haha, you got it! Does Suplex City...

Re: TD 236: Wrestlemania

IMPORTANT NOTICE: I'm extending the deadline to the end of the month. I'm not going to be able to sort everything out before then anyway. Good luck! I know what metro areas are, but my question is, did Gallup survey every metro area, even the smaller ones? Or did they limit themselves to "major" me...

Re: TD 236: Wrestlemania

I don't understand question #5. Is this asking for companies that had the largest profits overall, the largest profit margin, or something else? For example, suppose SuperCo had $10 billion in expenses and $50 million in profits, and Mom-n-Pop Inc. had $100,000 in expenses but had profits of $1 mil...

Re: TD 236: Wrestlemania

Are Greek and Roman names of the same child of Zeus/Jupiter considered the same response or different responses? Different responses. Should have made that clear.

Re: TD 236: Wrestlemania

Love this. I was a huge wrestling fan, but this new stuff just seems childish. It would have been nice if you couldve incorporated nwo and more of the attitude era. Its still real to me dammit. The WWE likes to pretend the Attitude Era never happened. Except in the Monday Night War series on WWE Ne...

Re: Monday, December 1, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Cerulean is one clever kid. Betting big when he knew he would know the answer. Not many adults have that level of balls, even if it's a good risk. Three very smart kids, I hope they use the money well. Not a great game for me, not proud to admit--swung and missed on Final, slow on the imaginary buzz...

Re: TD 219 - The Thanksgiving Edition

I don't always enter these because of my embarrassing lack of knowledge, but I'm fairly confident I'll end up in the lower half of the score sheet this time around. I think I dodged most of the sheeps, but a few of the questions were coin flips for me.

Re: Thursday, November 27, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I was surprised White Plains was a TS, as it was the least anagrammed of the cities in the category and had the color TOM. Still, I would think it's very far down the list for cities in New York. There are literally dozens of other cities that would come to mind first. I would've needed hours to co...
