Re: James wouldn't have lost pre-James

The GoT spoiler is ridiculous, but Austin Powers was also one of the people making 'subtle' comments about James' lost before it aired. Some people have gotta get their kicks online if they can't in real life, I guess.

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

James went absolutely stone cold on the buzzer in DJ, wow.

We’ve been really blessed by some great moments in the past five or so years. Love it.

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

i know sports knowledge is generally poor amongst jeopardy questions, but i'm absolutely flabbergasted that only half of the players in LL know the answer to (essentially) 'who is the best tennis player in the world?'

Re: LL68: For the LLamas

i think the current rules of discussion are a bit silly. surely most people have the desire to discuss the questions immediately after they submitted, not the next day. IMO the rule should just be 'don't open the thread until you've submitted for that day', and everything in the thread is open seas...

Re: Triple turn'ed stumper!

He didn't because didn't know it. what exactly are you basing this on? the fact t...

Oh and going back a bit .. Soul Asylum was way undercosted. I'm a big fan of the band and knew it instantly, but it was arguably not even the biggest song from a band that only had one popular album. disagree with all of this. it was a 2k clue, it's a pretty famous song and their most popular by a ...

Re: Jeopardy! and Ken's streak analyzed by Five Thirty Eight

I'm not sure what eaxctly you're referring there as being lame, but I see at least two problems there: First, he might not have a crush in all his games (don't know how often he did have it, but I assume not in every one), so he can lose by both of them missing and the challenger betting small. Sec...

"Here’s how we figured this out. We assumed that Jennings headed into Final Jeopardy with at most one other player in contention to win.
