Re: So...what have we learned so far from James Holzhauer?

Jeopardy Wasn’t Designed for a Contestant Like James Holzhauer
“James’s performance, I’m sure, is causing grief for an accountant somewhere."

The writers misspelled "minuscule" in the "Moolah" category. I have a feeling that "miniscule" is eventually going to be considered an alternate spelling because it appears so frequently. I don't think that's happened yet, though. We've had this discussion before... https://jboard.tv/viewtopic.php?...

I knew he was a Munchkin, but would "Wizard of Oz cast" been incorrect? The judges and Alex would not appreciate a trouble-making response like that one. It's fine to give yourself a correct for the weekly poll. If you had been on the stage you do not want to give the powers a chance to neg you. I ...

That one did not strike me as likely as having the DD. What? Each category has a 1-in-6 chance in the J! round. Right, but based on historical trends some types of categories are more likely to have DDs than others. For example, categories called Potpourri rarely or never have them. The Monet categ...

Re: Sony Reportedly Searching For Alex's Replacement

I think Anderson Cooper would be a good choice. He has a news background, so that gives him an appearance of being intellectual. He also doesn’t seem to take himself too seriously, much like Alex. He is 51 (ten days older than me), so he is young enough to put in a good 20 years or so at the helm. ...
