Re: Architect notoriety

Saarinen came up last week. Edit: He seems to appear in j-archive more than any of these. (Not Wright or Pei, though.) I think Saarinen comes up a lot because he's one of "the ones" - if you hear "Finnish architect", it's probably him (or one of them). Just like Swedish playwright is usually Strind...

Seriously. I'm curious if he's really AS fast as he appears to be…how much is it Matt, and how much is it the editing?
He's that fast (she said with woe).

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

Agreed, plus Erik had a great look with that hair. I'm trying to think whom he reminded me of. Bob Eubanks? Actually, the whole game it was driving me nuts trying to figure out why Erik looked so familiar to me. I still don't know. He reminded me of an actor named Steve Valentine, minus the creepin...

Re: Friday, October 9, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It was all a ton of fun. I have to admit that at the time I initially felt that luck wasn't on my side that day, first when "Baseball Records" and "Medical AKAs" came up in a game I was not playing (two categories in my wheelhouse), and then watching Matt just tear it up. However, I realized how fo...

Sadly I can't take credit for it. Spike says it in an episode of Buffy. :)

Actually, in my audition mock game, they had a College Football Coaches category that had exactly that!

Thiiiiiis. Emily and Elicia, I can't imagine the stress of sitting in the studio audience all day, watching Matt do THAT for four episodes straight, and all the while knowing you're next in line. No matter how prepared you are, that's gotta take a toll. Talk about War Novels, you guys should write ...

Re: Friday, October 9, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I don't go to games, but from what I understand, the stadium has changed a lot in the last ten years or so. The area was hit hard by the tornado. I spent time on the coast post-Katrina and I avoided seeing the Tuscaloosa damage because I had enough of looking at natural disasters. We lived in Knoxv...

Hi Emily! So glad to see you here, my sister in getting buzz-sawed. :)
P.S. If you ever feel like trekking out this way again for a little less stressful L.A. experience, we have a lovely guest room that you're welcome to at any time!

Nothing to do with this post, but I just wanted to say I really enjoyed watching your games, you were so much fun! Not to mention my intense jealousy of your Rush drumsticks. I was like "This chick combined Rush and Jeopardy, she is my hero."

How did Matt, and the whole world, for that matter, not know post-and-lintel? 1000 clue, really? His sixth grade history teacher is not too happy. You know who wasn't too happy about not getting that? ME, an "Interior Architectural Design Student", according to my intro. It was one of those things ...

Since Elicia took the plunge and is posting, I guess I will, too. I'm the aforementioned Emily. If I remember correctly, I laughed myself at Alex's comment because it wasn't exactly my finest hour. Mostly I remember just feeling sad and rueful. I'm from a really small town. People were so genuinely...

Now I really wish you had won. Where are you from originally? I'm from a tiny place in rural TN originally, but I went to Bama and lived in T-town for close to 8 years. I'm dying to get back for a game and take my husband. A few years back I was visiting my family and we took a little road trip dow...

Welcome to the Board, Elicia. And welcome to the I lost to Matt Jackson Club. There are several of us here. (I played him on the show aired 9/30). I've been thinking all week that Matt (Jackson) would play every day this week; the other Matt in your pool was a holdover from my taping day. When I di...

I thought we might see a single player FJ. Emily clearly got frustrated and I think Elisha could have done well against a lesser champ, but she had no chance today. I had FJ written down before the music even started. Thanks Bamaman! I really wish I could have had the opportunity to play against al...

Re: Friday, October 9, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Until the first commercial break, I thought MJ was done for! I mean, before today I don't remember the last time we saw the color red in front of his podium. And he wasn't even in the lead at the break! I guess it's Friday, so he's been in the hot seat for a long taping day already. Does anybody kn...
