Absolutely. I think he made at least one other encouraging comment to her later.

Re: Thursday, May 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought Alex was really very kind to Adrienne, and I found it touching. There are certainly times when he seems irritated with some players (for reasons I can sometimes guess and sometimes not) but we don't see this from him very often. The dudes got layers. Like an onion.

Re: Thursday, May 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

These days nobody calls the island Santa Catalina in conversational usage. In Southern California it's commonly referred to as Catalina Island. The word "Santa" is nowhere on the Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau web site . Usage of the "Santa" is by no means extinct but it's less common. Tough...

Agreed

Perspective I guess. I read "26 miles" and was singing the song by the time Alex finished reading. Was that 400 or 600?

Totally tanked FJ. My friend said and I groaned.

I'm just starting scoring. 21400 isn't bad, right? (I possibly could be stricter with myself, but I tried to be straight about it.

Re: Friends competing on Jeopardy?

Ken Jennings writes in his book that his friend got the call but had to wait until Ken finished to play (and therefore ended up waiting a long long time) Kind of a lucky break for the friend, really. I wonder how he did when he finally got on. I wondered the same thing and sent an email to Ken afte...

That was a bad day for the pediatrician, losing in large part because she missed two medical clues. Regarding her interview, what vaccines do we have today that we didn't have 32 years ago? Chicken Pox, as mentioned. Some of these might be closer to 35 years, but Hepatitis A and B. Hep B is regular...

Max Baer the boxer was German? That had me shaking my head early even before the Dempsey stumper. Baer was American. Dan lost money for that response. Lenny got with Schmelling. Right. I did not write my comment well. It was Dan's miss thinking Baer was German that had the show off to a bad start o...

Don't worry, you have not set the record for most opening day posts yet. Where would we find (or how would we go about finding) that record? Brian Those of us with long memories for infamous posters know exactly what the record is. As long as the signal:noise ratio is good, you're clear. But, you m...

Choyon's run is over, but it was an excellent one. Congratulations on your run, and congrats to Dan for winning this game. I had 38 correct responses including three triple stumpers: Jack Dempsey, Jacquard, and The Prince of Tides . I also got the missed DDs of 800 and Anchors Aweigh . Instaget FJ....

Everyone in my house got olive tree really fast. We were surprised that it was a stumper to the contestants.

Sorry to see you go, champ. You were enjoyable to watch. Thank you for that.

Simple answer: they Archivists are all volunteers, so they enter rounds when and if they have the time. More elaborate answer: it was a holiday weekend, so even the people that proof or enter games when they aren't entered timely haven't been able to get to it yet... :-) Wasn't a holiday weekend fo...

Re: Monday, May 25, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Your comment reminds me of a lightbulb moment I had just the other day. Probably everyone else has tumbled to this long since: There are often timely categories. If there is a holiday there might be a category related to it, etc, right? So when I as a viewer am sitting home watching I am aware that...
