Re: Friday, September 30, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

Why oh why couldn't they have had ANY of this week's FJs last Friday? Sigh. (IMHO all all last week's FJ clues were harder than this week's. But that's probably just me. Equestrian was an instaget; I'd never have thought of sailing.) Chris is on fire. Very, very impressive. Let's see if he can keep ...

Re: Thursday, September 29, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS

Wow, that guy Chris is crazy good. He sure looks like serious TOC material. I'm glad I didn't have to go up against him.

Congrats, Serge, on becoming a Jeopardy champion. Regardless of last night's results, no one can take that away from you.

Re: Friday, September 23, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

A belated thanks to everyone who offered their encouragement and congratulations in this thread. It has really meant a lot to me as I continue to process the whole experience. It did not turn out like I hoped, but at least I can say I played well up until the end, and that's worth a lot. It's nice t...

Re: Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Game Recap & Disc(SPOILERS

Nicely done, Serge! You were strong the whole game and really pulled it out at the end, despite some very deep competition. Can't wait to see you on TV again tomorrow night!

Well drat. That kid was tough, tough, tough, but you fought hard and should be proud of yourself. I did not know that Nancy Kassebaum represented Kansas -- good for you for getting that, along with other things. Loved your pirate story; very colorful and well told. I can see that you are a firecrack...

Re: Monday, September 26, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

When was this episode taped? While still limping and in the boot, Alex's walking seemed to be much improved over last week's episodes. I believe this week's episodes were taped on August 23. I taped on August 2, and Alex had surgery the next day (the August 3 tapings were canceled for that reason),...

Re: Monday, September 26, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

I got "spurs" right away, but probably only because I'm a fan of medieval history. I think "golden" was no help at all, and "earning your spurs" is kind of obscure, so I can see why Amit and others here had trouble with it. (Amit actually told me not long ago that he was going back and forth between...

Re: FJs for the 9/19/11 week

This was a tough week for FJs for me. The only one I knew cold was the Voigt/Jolie FJ. I got lucky with Thoreau, could not get past "squash" for the sport, and guessed "nature" for Nietzsche. As for my own "caramel"-themed FJ, checkout lines will haunt me for the rest of my days. LOL (I gotta bring ...

Re: Friday, September 23, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

Thanks, everyone, for the support and post-game encouragement. I have finally settled on an appropriate avatar. I don't know the protocol around here, but if I wanted to post a recap of my show experience (I'd try to keep it short), would I do it here or in a separate thread?
