Re: Thursday, February 4, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Missed the episode, what exactly did Alex say that was such a big hint for Berkelium?

Re: Tuesday, October 13, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Not only were the two challengers sharp but Matt gets two very easy DDs one after the other. Had a butterfly flapped its wings a little more strongly on the other side of the world, this could have been the one. I thought this FJ was nailed on for a triple get. The year quoted + sexual orientation ...

Re: Monday, October 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

WLT "dragon" on Game of Thrones for $200? The whole category seemed YEKIOYD. A lot of pop culture clues are YEKIOYD by nature. Game of Thrones is a big enough sensation where I heard of many of the characters mentioned from friends before I started watching the show myself. The Joffrey clue had a r...

Re: Matt Jackson: A Profile

I'm used to seeing people running down all the contestants on twitter, and I tell myself that they really don't expect that the contestants will see it, but I was really shocked to see some people going on to his facebook page to tell him to his face they didn't like him or they thought he was a li...

Matt Jackson: A Profile

Hi everyone - I've been watching Jeopardy a long time but I'm a relative newcomer to the board, only coming to see the discussions since Matt Jackson's been tearing his way through the competition. I went to college with him and knew him personally - I wouldn't say we were close friends, but I admir...

Re: Thursday, October 8, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I also noticed in this game that Matt seems to start with calling the categories that he is weaker in. I can't say that I like that strategy, because I wouldn't want to lose control of the board and then see one of my opponents uncover a DD in a category that I like. It is better to try to stay in ...

Greg Vinton wrote:When Alex referred to one of the answers on Final being easy and the other being more difficult, I assume he meant that Greek was the easy one. But I was with Matt today. Cyrillic was an instaget and Greek took me about 25 seconds.
What timezone are you in where Jeopardy comes on so early?

Re: Wednesday, October 7, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have never been to California and the Count was an instaget. I think anyone who was a baseball fan (particularly the NL) in the 1970s would know him. I grew up a Braves fan and he even played for them for one season. As others have said, Matt knows some current sports but sports history isn't his...

Re: Wednesday, October 7, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

And now I'm wondering which College player it was specifically that told Matt to try out? It was Sam Spaulding. I was at Yale with both of them, and was acquantainces with Matt. I wonder if this board would be interested in some background information on Matt's personality and quizbowl history; I c...
