Re: Long-standing Jeopardy Traditions That We haven't seen in a long time

I miss the players walking out during the introductions. Speaking as one who slipped and nearly fell "entering the studio" for his first game, I don't miss the walk-ons at all.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Medal ceremony

Congratulations to the inimitable Schliemann, whom I figured would walk away with another championship, and did.

And I'll add mine to the chorus of thanks already expressed to rjaguar3 and the crew of writers and scorers who gifted us with yet another fun summer. You all rock!
