You're not the only one tired of reading his crap.

Re: Monday, November 20, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

How easy did this game seem after after watching the ToC? Nice. Who tries to pronounce LT's first name? That's just asking for trouble. Give the last name and move on. Kara finds the first DD and shakes her head like it's the worst thing in the world when in reality it's quite the opposite. If the ...

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

What about the alternate? Sorry, you just missed out on making the field. You're welcome to show up in case something happens to someone, but it's on your own dime. :) Do we have confirmation that Tim Kutz served this duty? From what I was told in my covering of the 2015 tournament, the alternate g...

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

Have we ever had official word that the cost is a consideration in how often they do them? In any average two-week period, the show gives away $150 -$250K in prizes to winners (paid for by advertising). Total for the ToC is just under $500,000, so it's more, but not a huge amount more. If it wasn't...

Re: Projecting When the Next ToC Competition Might Take Place

In the category of grain of salt, Alex in his 11/20 opening talked about the players wanting to qualify for next year's tournament of champions. It's certainly quite possible that with the sponsorship dollars coming in that the show might be able to afford the prize budget to do a Tournament of Cha...

Alex will retire when he doesn’t want to do it anymore. No sooner and no later, regardless of what his contract says.

Re: Reversing the Acceptability of a Response

I don't think that anyone here would have a definitive answer to this question. The only people that might have an idea would be the producers, and they certainly wouldn't be able to tell us in this forum. Also, there would certainly not be a precedent for such an instance. Moreover, I don't think t...

Re: Monday, November 13, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Lily should have been in the lead going into FJ had she taken her time and found the correct words for her DD. Not that it would have mattered. Wasn't thrilled about Andrew's DJ DD wager in the bottom box. He started in row 3 and knew it, then didn't know row 4 before the DD. That should have been ...

Didn't Alexander the Great die in the 4th Millennium BC (323 BC) and not the 1st?
323 BC would be the 4th century BC. (I had a similar thought when watching, then I realized my error.)

but depending on Tim's landing spot he might be a contender too.
Are you suggesting Buzzy/Lisa is tougher, or Alan/Pranjal? Because that could really go either way.

I might even say that if Jason ends up on Tuesday, Lisa also would have a pretty tough draw, all things considered.

Here's what I know: - The thumbnail of the promo at Jeopardy.com shows Andrew / Austin / Lilly. - Austin tweeted his semifinal was Monday, thus Andrew / Austin / Lilly is Monday. - Buzzy tweeted his semifinal was Tuesday. - Alan tweeted his semifinal was Wednesday. - Because all of Monday is known, ...

I think Lilly Chin is a really good player coming out of the college tourny, and she might get into the semi's, but she was a little overmatched even in her quarterfinal.
I don't think we were watching the same game on Tuesday.
