Re: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did anyone else notice that Alex's final wager didn't lock out Rose? He only bet enough to get double her score, and if she hadn't held a dollar in reserve (a practice that doesn't make sense as often as it is used) they would have gone to a tie-breaker. It seems like a big blunder that he got away ...

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks, Volante: In my mind I like "clinched the pennant" for winning the National League and not just the NL West though I understand when the term is used for wrapping up the division. One year off almost 30 years later can happen to anyone's memories. Fine reduced. I'm late to this party, but I ...

Re: "Basic strategy" for Final Jeopardy wagering?

There is one absolute- if you've got a lock game, don't get greedy. Even that isn't an absolute. If you manage to pull the absolute wheelhouse category there's a good argument for betting it all even if you put your win at risk. There is no good argument for this. There is nothing but laughter and ...

Re: Learned League 72 - Official Thread

No way was I going to bother with pencil and paper for such a simple problem. Of course I can multiply 2-digit numbers in my head, but that's error-prone and unpleasant. This seems contradictory to me. If computing it in your head is error-prone why not just use a pencil and paper? I figure it take...

You said if you could find it on any list you would accept it.

Re: TD 320 “Tight on the Spiral” for the NFL themed TD

Not sure why I got 3 points for Bradford and the two Stanford QBs should have been separate answers but it was a fun set a questions to think about even if there were some issues with the execution.

Re: Sports Jeopardy! EP. 1 (9-21-16) [Spoilers]

Based on your reactions I wish there had been a lot more modern NBA questions on my episode, because that FJ was a pretty easy one for me.
