These boards yielded bounteous trash exceeded only by the Earth's orbiting space debris: Mike Nichols, edict, Ken Kesey, Graham Greene, From Here to Eternity, phlogiston.

Re: Thursday, April 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This has probably been mentioned already, but my pet peeve with recent guest hosts is how long they take to judge whether a contestant's response is correct. All those agonizing pauses!!! You can see the contestants sometimes second-guessing themselves while they wait for the ruling. Anderson won on...

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

I'm glad to hear LeVar got his wish, as J! clearly means a lot to him. He's not exactly young and scrappy anymore, but you can be sure he's not throwing away his shot.

Aaron Rodgers has one of the very few occupations where he is paid more than he would be as Jeopardy host.
But you don't need an ice bath after a day of hosting Jeopardy!

Right-handed pitcher Joe Musgrove threw a no-hitter on April 9 against the Texas Rangers. It is the first no-hitter ever by a Padres pitcher.

I'm not absolutely certain about this, but I believe the San Diego Padres were the last remaining MLB team never to record a no-hitter in franchise history.

Never knew There was an Abilene Kansas.
Never watched a western? Check out Red River on Turner Classic Movies later this month, and you'll get a mini education on Abilene and the Chisholm Trail and see a fine film to boot.

Rodgers was likable enough, and he handled the FJ dig with the right amount of chagrin. But he lacks the polish and gravitas for consideration as permanent host, however much he campaigns for it. I'm afraid I have to stand with the Cheeseheads in saying, "Aaron, don't quit your day job."
