Re: Reretaken Down

Square brackets would be the natural way to do it in an academic paper. But that might seem too highfalutin for Jeopardy! "There wasn't any Democratic Party.

Re: Who says "35" was never reported as the passing score?

I seem to recall a contestant coordinator or other member of TPTB once stating on the record (it may even be in that 25th anniversary book) that "we have never announced what a passing score is" or "we never announce a passing score" or something to that effect. You may be thinking of one of a numb...

Alex opened on commenting about both challengers being "AA" names. Let's see cheezguyty find another set of "AA" players. The closest I can get is Show #5961 , when Aaron Wicks defended against Saad Hasan. Aanchal is now the first player alphabetically in the Archive, surpassing Aarin Martinez .
