Re: Friday, July 20, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

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...

Ugh...the common trend of Season 34 continues. Poor wagering...AND IT HAPPENS NEAR THE END OF THE SEASON! ... This has been such a pet peeve I get frustrated over, second-guess betting. If Dave did get FJ! right and doubled, Suzanne would have lost! ... every stormtrooper in the Star Wars series wo...

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 ...

Re: Monday, May 14, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

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. I wasn't there in the audience to see, but for an easy bit of "lach trash" like this, I wonder if the other contestants actuall...

Re: Tuesday, May 1, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

LV gave me a 50/50 between Vitton & Versace, not knowing their first names. Naturally I chose wrong. Of course I would've bet absolutely nothing with that category. It would have been interesting to see if they'd accept "Vitton." Now that I think about it, it's almost a good thing this was a TS. It...

If J! has rounded up a ringer for the regular play portion of May sweeps that began yesterday I don’t think Carolyn or now Alexandra are the ones. The Teachers Tournament May 7-18 will take up half of the period. 2013 was the last time that May did not have a future TOC player in regular play. Fasc...

I was expecting Krishna to get a reversal on "croupier" if it mattered. Same here. Me three. Maybe it did get reversed, but since it still wouldn't have been enough for him to show up for FJ, wasn't mentioned? Ditto on the expected reversal on "croupier!" I'm guessing the judges didn't catch it and...
