I noticed something intresting about season 3:

Sharon MIyasato returned to Jeopardy and
Spoiler
won two games on 1/12-13/1987
after being on there 10/3/1986. Was it ever explained why she returned?
My guess is her response in DJ22.

I put down “ohm” and claiming credit.

Alex’s opening message was nice, but bittersweet.

Re: Wednesday, November 25, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

And why was her being born in California important? Maybe as a negative constraint? Madonna is from Michigan, that's sort of well known, and I think Whitney was from Houston New Jersey. That phrase stuck out to me too as extraneous though. If you aren't getting it from the rest of the clues, "Calif...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I wonder if she tanked FJ because she preferred a new oven over a washer/dryer? Not making it a question but having the right person is a good way to show off your knowledge and still “settling” for third place.

Re: Tuesday, November 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I don’t precall much but Magna Carta came to mind right before Alex revealed the answer. Then I remembered the FJ from a couple years ago that had an album with a name close to that. I was surprised when it came up. An odd category for FJ since we had Versailles and Ghent during the game. I got FJ ...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

The fact that I don't know anything ABOUT the Magna Carta other than "important early document" sank me here and caused me to clam. I really need to work on this "half-knowing" thing. So many things I'm aware exist, but couldn't tell you what they are. The mention of knights should point to a very ...

Maybe they will show the 1991 College tournament to pick up the 20 clues missing from the final.
Probably wishful thinking... my sense is they have a preference for the post-HD content
Maybe they will put together a series of episodes with full credit rolls.

Re: Do you remember College Bowl? It's back!

Maybe he can get an audition for Jeopardy. Granted, he doesn’t check a lot of boxes as a straight white guy raised in privilege, but he is certainly a big name. He did earn a college degree in three years while being a starting QB for a high profile college football team. He also had a GPA over 3.0....

I think Ken was the planned for an emergency host if they needed one.

I would love to have Watson as host.

Re: What ought to happen next?

I think Alex did his last week over two days.

It will be odd for the players to go to taping, especially for those who tape before Ken games air or those who tape with a host they aren’t familiar with.

Re: What ought to happen next?

A normal season consists of 230 episodes. The rest of the Alex episodes gets us up to 75 shows in S37. Factoring in the two weeks from the vault, that leaves 145 episodes in the rest of the season. So I wonder if the entire rest of the season will be guest hosts and the permanent one will begin next...

Instaget FJ. Never considered anyone else. Mine wasn't quite the instaget, but his was the only name I could come up with from that time. I've certainly heard of Cordell Hull, but if it were him, there's no chance I would have come up with him. Same here on Hull. I didn’t know he was involved with ...

Re: What ought to happen next?

I think dipping into the vault for the last two weeks of 2020 is a great idea. I think having a familiar Jeopardy face as interim host is also good.
