Hi, I don't think I've ever formally introduced myself, though I've been somewhat active on this board for about two years. My name is Michael, and I'll be appearing in the Season 33 Teen Tournament this September! I live in Connecticut, and I'm a high school student. Hey! I think we've talked on h...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Hi, my name is Tom. I grew up in Oklahoma and now I reside near Washington DC. Recently I got to attend the taping at DAR Constitution Hall of some of the upcoming Power Players shows.

There's another point on which he got lucky - the judges' failure to reverse on the eighth clue of the game, for which Buzzy clearly said "Ga r garin" to a picture of the first man in space. Take $1200 off his score and he doesn't hold the lead going into Final. That being so, it's impossible to kn...

QB buzzing is a completely different ballgame from J! buzzing, which is probably what did Jerry in as well.

In fact they aren't even related.
Dammit, you beat me to it.
