Re: Thursday, September 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Was anyone else surprised to learn that restaura n teur is actually restaura n teur ? :shock: But I still think she should've gotten credit. (that "incorrect" usage is just too easy to find...) As for FJ, I like to think I would've gotten it, but under the lights I might've accidentally gone with We...

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

Who were the people in the pre-FJ! commercial bumper? John Lauderdale is the stage manager. Maggie Speak (no glasses) is a producer. Someone with more recent stage experience will have to identify the 3rd person. Corina Nusu, senior contestant coordinator. My first impulse is that the leftmost staf...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Jeopardy usually has 3 tournaments or special events a year to coincide with sweeps months - November, February and May. February = All Star tournament Does anyone know the plans for November and May? I would presume that one of them is a College championship but I do not know which one. The revamp...

Re: The Rankest Thread Imaginable

I’d like to request... Plucked from the Pool (airing Feb-28-2018) if that’s not out of line. :) can it be corrected to Plucked from the Pool (airing Feb-14-2018) ? Hmmm. Might I request: "Hoping for a 2018 ToC!" Welp, I guess it is time to face reality. How about, "Hoping for a 2019 ToC!" ;)

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Day 4: Hercules visits where?? New York? Hahaha, nah can't be that. My gut said New York, but then I was pondering Thorsten's use of the term "location" instead of "city" and then came the clincher: I decided (and still insist!) that a far catchier title would be Hercules in Brooklyn ...and with th...

Re: LearnedLeague 78 - Official Thread

Roma tomatoes sounded good to me. I'm still a little unclear on what constitutes a 'cultivar' - my latest working definition that may be wrong is a plant species created through selective breeding. When answering yesterday I was thinking more of strains of a plant (eg. Types of tomato) vs. quite di...

Alex seemed thrown off near the end of DJ when Dave pronounced the leader of Turkey as err-doe- gun and not err-doe- wan Of course that's phonetically acceptable as per Jeopardy convention, but in this case I think Alex really wanted to say no because the clue text specifically focuses on the fact t...

Re: Thursday, July 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ryan'll get flak for his holster gesture, but I say, after a comeback like that, let the kid have his end zone dance. It was a breathtaking run (and lucky, thanks to the rebound swings). But I bet I wasn't the only viewer expecting karmic retribution for the Annie Oakley routine, in the form of a t...

Re: Monday, July 9, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

That was a heck of a game. I was rooting for Lauren, so pleased to see her stay clam and hold onto the lead, and then crushed by the sad irony that her final moments of staying clam probably cost her the game. I would've been way wrong with LBJ, whereas Wes gave the best possible miss. (Teddy's time...

Re: Friday, May 25, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

As awful a category as movies usually are for me, I got FJ. 2008 combat comedy=Tropic Thunder=Robert Downey Jr. or Ben Stiller, and no way it was Stiller. The biopic never would have helped me, though. Got as far as "Tropic Thunder" as the combat comedy, but only from ads and previews. Didn't see t...

I think it would be nice to see him sweep the week and be a superchamp. RobW, if you're seeing this, I think you now just found a stiff competitor for the next ToC. Oh yes, I'm seeing this. I'd say that Josh has already earned the "superchamp" title, and I am very much looking forward to the chance...

... Josh Hill: 21995 -7206=14789 (5x = $117,319) Hermine Vermeij: 14600 -8201=6399 Andrew 11400-11400=0 Daily Doubles Josh: 1200+1200 Andrew: 7400+4000 Josh: 20000- 5 I think the interesting "what if" game is imagining a slightly larger DD3 wager from Josh. He loses $100 instead of $5, and Hermine ...

Erika was in a very straightforward four-fifths scenario and should have won on the double stumper, but she apparently had not done any studying on wagering. It is surreal to watch these tournament games in my current (pending TOC) situation. I found myself holding my breath and extremely hopeful t...

Of course it’s always funny what players know and don’t know. SHORT ANSWER TEST $200: In Japanese hai means this Fine, Larry guessed, “Hi.” What puzzled me was no rebound.
