Re: Friday, October 28, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILE

I appreciate the empathetic posts above. I did not stick around in the studio after my loss so the first time I watched this show was last night. I agree with the other boardies that the play was subpar last night. Certain jeopardy staples like Cape Horn, Rimsky-Korsakov and other Russian composers,...

Hey Alietr,

Great to hear from a fellow Brunonian. I was the color commentator on WBSR and all of our equipment was donated by Chris Berman! I'm class of 2000. Thanks for the kind words and the support!Have you been on yet?

Re: Thursday, October 27, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

Congratulations to Sunny on her well earned victory. She played a heck of a game and was the best player today. I actually didn't realize during the taping that she had bet for the tie. Had I realized it at that time, I would have slept just fine afterwards. There was no way that I was going to make...

Re: Wednesday, October 26, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

Well, that was so fun to watch. I'm relieved that I didn't have parsley in my teeth or something else embarrassing. Here are my fairly disjointed thoughts: Congrats again, Gabor, on a great game. I didn't realize how streaky the game was until tonight, even though Alex mentioned something about it ...

Re: Wednesday, October 26, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

This was a fun but harrowing game. Ryan and I sat next to each other in the audience for Monday's game's taping and commiserated about our anxiety prior to the show. I felt like the show was way tighter than the final scores pre-FJ indicated. Metal detector seems so obvious in retrospect but my mind...

Re: Tuesday, October 25, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(Spoile

Thanks to everyone for the congratulations. I will say that my journey to finally appear on the show took many twists and turns. Originally I was in the studio as an alternate in March. I was 50/50 to play the last game of the day. The other challenger that show: Mark Runsvold. So basically it was a...

Re: Monday, October 24, 2011 Game Recap and Discussion(Spoil

Congrats to Balaji on his second win. Watching from the audience that day, seated next to Ryan, I was really scared of playing Laura. She played very well and clearly had a very different fund of knowledge than my own as evidenced by the "fabric" and "finesse" responses. My main fear going into the ...

Re: SHC Round 6 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

I'm partial to Dili as well, but mainly because Dili means insane in my native language, Hungarian.

Clammed on Pericles as it was a coin flip with Timon for me. Anybody have any good easy ways of distinguishing between the two for J! purposes?
