So what was the point of the champ's wager?

Math errors happen?
Lack of wagering theory happens?
But yesterday, his wager from 2nd place was on the nose.

As an unapologetic Alanis Morissette fan, I was rooting for her red-headed sister to take this game.
I wondered if anyone else would notice the resemblance.

Re: Thursday, January 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Beatles alert! I was just thinking this past week, "Huh, no Beatles clues for a LONG time on J!, and I figured that should be a J! favorite." Maybe they milked all the clues? Maybe it's too bimodal - either really easy trivia that everyone knows, or stupidly obscure facts? Too much of a "trivia cir...

I NHO "A Wrinkle in Time" until lately, I guess it's a movie or something. I will give myself an "OK Boomer". --------------- * Not that they called us that back then.** I was a married adult with a kid on the way by the time my generation got a label.

Lol, I'm so inept at geography that I could only think of one city in thirty seconds...and it was the right one. I've used up my luck for the week.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Whenever one of our media savvy boardies posts ratings results on this final game, I'm curious if these 14 million viewers are the "right" ones. Comparing to World Series game 7's is kind of hollow if we don't get Beer, cars, and snack food advertisers. I'm not trying to be needy, but I need someon...

Did it seem a little odd that they used the word "summer" as part of a clue for the solution "summer camp"? "Seasonal" might've made it a little more challenging.

I went with "coot" for the four-letter word because I've always thought of "fogey" as five.
The category was "F"OUR-LETTER WORDS.
And thus, I'm outed as someone who doesn't always pay attention when the categories are being announced.

Re: J! in the Media

Will be interesting to see the Live+7 numbers for the GOAT episodes...I wonder if they'll benefit more from viewers who recorded them, than the average live sporting event.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 1 (1/7/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"Bitchin"(or "bitchen") is an old slang expression, and it's not profane, so I guess we don't have to worry that AT has become some kind of out-of-control vulgarian in the twilight of his career.
