Re: Friday, January 24, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I ended up with Nora Roberts, which was not an awful guess...did consider Steel but thought she was younger. :oops: Glad to see Kacey Musgraves get more love from the J! writers than mainstream Nashville *runs for cover*. I suspected John was not for long at the champs's spot even if he won today as...

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Good on Veronica for taking a risk. I have absolutely no problem with any Clavin-proof wager in this situation. Bet 0 if you hate the category - we all have blind spots, and recognizing them is good, even if some categories aren’t always indicative of the subject matter or difficulty. Bet 0 if you ...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Many congrats to Ken, I'm so beyond happy he was able to take the title plus the all-time game show winnings record. Fantastic and fun competition, lots of drama right up to the end. Kudos to the producers for listening to the cries of the people and making this happen LOL. Hat tip to James for doin...

Re: J! in the Media

The Ringer has penned some nice pieces about the show in the past, and here's one more, a predictions article ahead of the GOAT tourney. Nice to see Reddit and JBoard both get shout outs.

Re: Monday, January 6, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It's always a good day when Vermont is repped on J! in some capacity LOL. Couldn't get the gears turning fast enough to get FJ right. :( Karen's performance is starting to remind me a lot of one of my favorite past champs in Seth Wilson. Fast on the buzzer, consistently putting up $20k lock games; n...

I precalled Sting LOL. Nevertheless, instaget FJ from my couch. Oscar winner drilling goes a long way.

Congrats to Karen on win #5. She's been fun to watch, and looks like a solid mid-level ToC player.

No shame in running into a ToC-caliber player, and I hope you enjoyed the experience. :) Jennifer is a strong player and I hope she wins at least five games. She is TOC quality and I hate it when TOC...

Every clue in that Jeff Goldblum category had me checking my watch. I wish they would just let Alex read all the clues. Yeah that was... a category alright. I'd have thrown a chair if the Pats category went unplayed. :lol: I'm torn between rooting for Jennifer and oduguy22 (best of retro-luck!) tom...

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

"Only" a million bucks for the top prize? Seems chintzy. Seriously though, 2 million would have bumped Ken or James to the top of the money list, or cemented Brad as the All Time. C'mon Consumer Cellular, pony up. I agree... this is the only thing I would have done differently if I planned this tou...

With a drop used, it's nice to know where I'll be sitting (most likely) for this quiz. Should've known better with the Trolley Song and I switched Andersonville to Gulag before submitting. Grrrrrrrr....

Ocean of air -> air pressure -> barometer -> Torricelli. *thumbs up*. :mrgreen: Lindsey was in my gold tier pre-tourney and today's performance proved why. She played a stellar game, just some tough luck with DD3 and FJ not bouncing her way. Big ups to Gilbert for a great performance too. It's aweso...

#TeamEmma. Fantastic game. Mom blurted out the right FJ response about 7 seconds in so I have no clue if I get there on my own. I'll count it *shrug*. WTG Dhruv for the shoutout. I owe Kyle an apology as I (and likely others) severely doubted his chances. Major props for great play in both games, an...

Re: Friday, November 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

ToC minisite seems to show an image of one of our SF matchups. With Emma (W3), Dhruv (W4) and Kyle (WC2) in that image that would likely leave: James (W2) / Steven (WC1) / Rachel (WC4) Francois (W1) / Lindsey (WC3) / Gilbert (W5) Of course, nothing has been confirmed yet, but these seem like fairly...

I thought Francois was capable of being a second week player after he won his Teacher Tourney, but he still blew me away today. I am hoping beyond hope that Francois, Emma and James are split up next week...those three were on a different level this week and that would be an awesome finals to watch....

I for one thought the U. of Utah clue was wicked negbait for BYU. I had to catch myself to not say BYU, but it’s not in the PAC-12. Utah was a layup after that. I think BYU is still in the Mountain West? BYU left the MWC in 2010. Independent in football since 2011, members of the West Coast Confere...
