Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I'm all in rooting for Ken and Matt on the same team, but Brad has got to be the morning line favorite if we're placing bets. That's a scary quiz bowl team he put together!

Re: Tuesday, September 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Unbelievable" was the first song played on the season finale of Beat Shazam a few moments ago. :lol: ETA: Now "Slide" by the Goo Goo Dolls came up in the final round. These writers must be psychics. Kyle is an alarmingly consistent player and his run has been enjoyable to watch, congrats on magic n...

Sooo close.

Just want to say a brief thanks for stepping up and running several of these lately, clt. They have all been enjoyable and it is much appreciated!

Not up on the details of Reagan's films and thought Dallas for a western. As soon as Alex started talking, I realized it was the Gipper --> Notre Dame --> South Bend. Half second too late. :oops:

Re: Millionaire 2018-19 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm fortunate to get the A slot at 10 AM and then the B slot right after with the Providence ABC affiliate.. What a fun day (Wednesday) this was! Had a good feeling on A with Susannah's $100K question. Almost certain I heard that story somewhere. My brother probably would've known her $250K question...

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

Though can someone please explain Lori's bet for FJ? It didn't seem like there was any logic. She admitted to a miscalculation in the Reddit thread. Figured as much, considering she wagered with the 1 on the end and was just a few hundred short. If she had wagered 5,000, then this might be a differ...

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

Thought Rick made the right choice to bet on the larger side; for some reason I figured Lori would be a candidate to not cover. Wonder if she just miscalculated by a few hundred or something, but luckily it didn't bite her this time. She played a strong game otherwise, and congrats on win #1! ETA: L...

Figured with 2,000 miles of country, it had to be a river and it had to be Brazil. Brazil it was. I have the Seven Sisters circled as something to study - Never been able to keep them straight. Would've come in handy last night! D'oh! Rick is a solid player and he didn't show any rust after the hiat...

Re: Jeopardy! All Stars First Pick Poll

Slightly biased perhaps because he's my favorite player since Ken, but I'd take Matt - Roger a close #2. Matt dominated DJ! rounds during his initial 14 games. He has an absurd DD solve rate. His preparation is also matched by few, considering he deactivated his Facebook account in the weeks leading...

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

I'll watch, but I think TPTB are trying way to hard with this. And in the end, it just means that there are now 20 less spots for contestants up for grabs this year. I agree in all honesty. Of course I'll watch and it's always exciting to see the game's legends play again. I'm over the moon to see ...

Update: I have 2 people lined up for the Plus One and both are coming with me to Vegas. Thanks all TBH, I don't know how well I'll do on Millionaire. Jeopardy! is more my speed, whereas Millionaire is more about pop culture / random facts. I'm going in with the expectation of winning $5,000 - anyth...

If anyone likes trading cards the 2018 Allen Ginter set has Scott Rogowsky included. You can do a search on eBay of "allen ginter rogowsky" to see the relic, autograph, etc. available. Austin Rogers is also part of this year's set. Just want to say thanks for bringing this to my attention, I love b...

Re: Reretaken Down

At least you Mets fans can get free therapy sessions, if that means anything.

I agree that it's way past time for the Mets to strip everything and start again like most of the bottom-feeders in the A.L. have recently. Crazy how quickly the Mets and Royals got so bad so soon after the '15 WS.

(Forgot to mention this yesterday) One game to go in the season and once again Sg is the most recent (along with KJ & DM in earlier seasons) champ to win all five games of the last week of the season. Andrew Haringer's five wins were on the same dates as mine six years later, but J! seasons have be...

Took about 10 seconds to suss it out, but eventually got there for Final. I was surprised that Colombia was a TS, though I have to wonder if the contestants misinterpreted the clue as not asking for a modern day country. It was so awesome to see a clue on Chipper Jones! Perhaps the image didn't appe...

Dave plays the game very well and has beaten some solid competition. It's been a pleasure to watch him the last two shows and I'd be surprised/disappointed if he doesn't end up in the ToC when all is said and done. Agree with others that the "sound familiar" part made this a dead giveaway; I kind of...
