Re: Wednesday, June 29, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Did Cleveland preempt the Wednesday game? My DVR failed to pick it up for some reason. Looks like it did air. I'm just plumb out of luck. :cry: My DVR somehow didn't record yesterday's episode as I was out of town. Count me in the group of DVR Fails. No idea why. Looks like it simply lost the serie...

Re: Monday, November 30, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

The worst is Versailles in Pennsylvania. They pronounce it Ver-sales'. I cringe in horror whenever I hear that. Same pronunciation used in Versailles, Kentucky. My favorite, though, is LeRoy (LEE-Roy), Illinois. Surprised no one's mentioned New Berlin (BURR-lin), WI, or Cairo (KAY-ro), IL, My wife ...

Have to admit that I was rooting for Jayne as soon as I saw she would be on the show. She was in my KC audition group; stood beside her in the practice game. Still, played better than I did.

And had it not been for a small twist of fate, I wouldn't have played against him. Erik from yesterday's game and I were the two L.A. alternates, but one of the other contestants was also named Matt, and they didn't want to force two people with the same name to play. Since Erik was the alternate w...

Chill, people. He's still only halfway to Julia territory. While Julia's 20 wins are impressive, she was never this dominant. I never had the feeling that her opponents were on suicide missions. I remember feeling that way when I watched her, but yesterday stumbled across an analysis on the FiveThi...
