Re: It's happening!!! The GOAT Tourney, w/ Brad + Ken + James

I have to wonder what the level of difficulty of the answer/questions will be.

I'll enjoy it for the drama of the competition and ...

I will be checking the box in the weekly poll stating that I teared up at Dhruv's FJ response. Pancreatic cancer can throw you curveballs. I found out today that I have to do another three months of chemo in order to be operable. But my long term survival chances will be quite good after that. I'm a...

I was in the audience for the taping for this episode and the previous one. There was a big group of pancreatic cancer survivors and supporters who showed up wearing purple shirts. If the show said anything about them I missed it. There was a shot of them in the audience before one of the commercia...

We've seen Streisand in FJs at least a few times; surprised that more didn't remember that. People here remember Leadville but not Barbra.
