Re: Thursday, October 27, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Space Oddity, as I recalled, was released in 1969. Bowie was British. That's that.

I was surprised nobody got the Chekov clue.

Re: Friday, September 16, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I didn't know the answer for FJ, but he was my first guess. What books of his haven't been made into movies?

Re: Sports Jeopardy! Ep. 9 [Spoilers]

I thought Justin could be someone we'd see in the finals. NHL Lines was a category I ran. I think the drawing it up one, too. I did 3/4 on the Trading Cards one. I thought possibly Andujar or Oquendo but I didn't know Andujar started his career an Astro. I didn't think it'd be Oquendo anyway since h...

Re: Thursday, November 20, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That was crazy. It was like watching Ken/Brad/Roger all over again. 1952 actually was not the worst guess in the world since President Truman didn't run, nor did Vice President Barkley, but then as I was sorting it out, I came up with 1920 relatively quickly, though 1952 was the first to pop into my...

Re: Sports Jeopardy EP. 7 [Spoilers]

I guessed Lujack for FJ.

12 right in J, 10 right in DJ if you count my "Checkmark" as "Swoosh or Nike." I also blurted out "Bert Carr" before I changed it to "Bert Bell."

Re: Sports Jeopardy Ep. 6 [Spoilers]

I was very embarrassed. It's something I clearly knew. Just didn't come to mind. I actually thought of Hugh Duffy, but then I know the season has been longer than 37 seasons, plus I found out he is in the Hall of Fame. All I can do is say it was a rough game for me and that I can keep practicing on ...

Re: Sports Jeopardy Ep. 6 [Spoilers]

Well hard is subjective. What may be hard to someone may be easy to someone else. I admit today was my worst performance easily, but some triple stumps I was yelling at my laptop the answer and no one buzzed in.

What does it take to get on to the show? I heard a lottery, but I applied a few more times on the website and heard nothing back.

Re: Sports Jeopardy Ep. 6 [Spoilers]

I'm embarrassed. Missed FJ. Tough board for me today. Need to do more learning and studying. I wish I were on this show. I obviously know Maris but I couldn't think of the correct answer in time.

Re: Sports Jeopardy - Episode 5 [Spoilers]

I was able to get all three Daily Doubles, plus FJ almost immediately. Then again, I know I need to work on stuff outside of baseball, basketball, football and hockey.

Re: Sports Jeopardy Standings [Updated through Game 5:10-22-2014]

I put in an email not too long ago to apply to be a contestant for an audition. I was passed up in the summer. Now it looks like I may be passed up again. I'd love my shot on this show. Really would.

Re: A preview of Sports Jeopardy! featuring some gameplay

Not quite sure how well I'd do. I'm simply playing from watching on my laptop. I did, however, sign up again. I want to be a contestant very much and was very disappointed I didn't get an audition the first time out. So many factors. Knowing the answers is merely a small part of all of it. I'm worri...

Re: Thursday, October 9, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Been a long time since I had gotten an FJ correct. I honestly remember that clue when I read about it in the news. Even if I didn't, I probably would've gotten it seeing as I knew Washington was born in 1732.

Re: Sports Jeopardy

Then I really have my luck diminished if it's a lottery call. It's been a dream of mine for years to be on a sports trivia show. I was not 18 when Stump the Schwab was on and cancelled before I turned 18. Now this.

Re: Monday, June 23, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have to give credit to Alison on another comeback. Tell me if I'm wrong, but it seemed like she was getting destroyed on the buzzer for a good deal of the game. Her two opponents were just so quick and then she pulls it out again.

Re: Sports Jeopardy

If there's a lottery element, that's really too bad. There are so many factors that go into Jeopardy and a lot of people that know their stuff, but if there is one subject on this entire planet I could probably do well on, it's sports, and I cannot guarantee it, but I think I could even go all the w...

Re: Sports Jeopardy

Would someone please be kind enough to tell me how or what you had to do for an email? I should've gotten one for Chicago since I signed up but never received my email. I wish I knew where the venue was.

Re: Wednesday, June 4, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think Alex is starting a little too soon by asking if Sarah could be the next big winner. I have yet to see yesterday's show. I think she's talented, knowledgeable and can be very good on the buzzer. However, I remember some contestants who got off to a stronger, faster start, only to lose not too...

Re: Monday, June 2, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

She looked like at first she would run away with it, but she didn't get that second Daily Double towards the end, which she was so good at finding. Critics can say they should go back to a limited number of games a player can be on. I disagree. Arthur and Julia were both refreshing because we hadn't...

Re: Friday, May 30, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Tennessee was the first thing I thought of. It was my best educated guess, didn't know it for a fact. Was not expecting Harold Macmillan to be a triple stumper, but it was. Not Julia's most dominant performance, but great game holding on in what was her first game in a while in which she seriously l...
