Re: Friday, May 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did anyone else hear a note of annoyance in Alex's voice when James interrupted him as he was saying, "That begins and ends with W"? I can't believe that I'm actually looking forward to the Teachers Tournament - an unnecessary tournament restricted to members of an occupation that is already well re...

Re: Thursday, March 21, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm fortunate that I'm not feeling my age physically, but life reminds you that you're getting older. I'm playing oboe in Beethoven's First Symphony this semester with a 30-year-old (excellent) conductor. The first time I played Beethoven's First was before he was born! Very often now, a clue comes...

Re: Previous J! contestants: Did you track money in real time?

I probably glanced up at it a few times also, but mostly when the Daily Doubles were in play. When you're up there onstage, time moves so fast, it's not possible to focus on the scoreboard. You're so fixated on the Game Board, that's really all you see. I barely even remember looking at Alex the who...

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

What a week! It was bad enough that Alex had to make this horrible announcement. Then the very next day, this life-long Met fan learned that Tom Seaver (the greatest Met of them all) is suffering from dementia, and has to retire from public life. May God strengthen them both for the upcoming trials ...

Re: What if they changed the tournament format so that the last-place finisher in the first day of the finals is elimina

If they want to treat this as a one hour final with four boards, they could at least let them bet Day 1 money in DD's and FJ. Interesting. Maybe Day 2 would be the Triple Jeopardy and Quadruple Jeopardy rounds. Clue values from $800 to $4000 in TJ and $1600 to $8000 in QJ. And maybe they can carry ...

The second the FJ picture came up, I said, "Hey, that looks like a Dyson ball!" After hearing the clue, I said, "Huh, I guess it is!"
I guess it's actually a Dyson Sphere.
