Re: Thursday, January 7, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm going to put "Steve is going to the Tournament of Champions" in my signature. Because I am 100% sure of three things in life: I'm gonna win the Powerball on Saturday, my father is disappointed in me, and Steve is going to the Tournament of Champions.

Re: Monday, January 4, 2016 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

And my year of tracking Jeopardy scores starts with a shoddy game and a dumb miss on Final. Was stuck between Ford and Reagan, and couldn't connect Reagan to the bicentennial so I spit out Ford under the buzzer. Overall, 18 right and 1 wrong for a $14k Coryat.

Re: Does this mean I can be one of the cool kids now?

You are sexy as heck so lucky to get on the show! I'm a little disappointed we didn't see SuperCam, but I'll let it slide because you're beautiful you were going up against such a great champion. Congratulations, man :)

I said "Lopster" really quickly for the "scallop" clue and then felt really dumb. Reminds me of the Family Feud question "Name a type of pork" and the guy says "Pork-upine."

Re: TD 276 -- The Chorizo Bowl (Two days left to enter!)

I very rarely enter TD, but I feel slightly confident about my odds to have a semi-decent game this time so I'll give it a shot.

Lots to talk about today! The carousel finally ends with a huge win for Ashley, first off. Maybe we'll see an extended run to start the year? Got 35 right today, with no negs. Either this was a pretty easy game or I got much smarter in my sleep. And I've decided that I'm going to start tracking my C...

Favorite Jeopardy moments?

I'm collecting great moments in Jeopardy history. What's your funniest/most exciting/most badass/overall best Jeopardy moment?

I'll start with Ken Jennings asking Alex "what's a hoe."

Re: Wednesday, December 30, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Pretty rough day for me, even by my standards. Ran BOXER BRIEFS, but could only scratch out 9 other correct answers for the rest of the game. Had tip of the tongue syndrome on Keplar as well, so just 14 right. But I went 7 for 12 on the website game today, so I guess that's worth something. Was it j...

Re: Wednesday, December 23, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

On the "tech names" DD, I had NHO a company called "Asus," but I knew that Bellerephon was Pegasus's rider, so I reluctantly subtracted the "Peg" from that horse's name to get to Asus. (My research indicates that it's a Taiwanese PC manufacturer that ranked 5th in sales globally in 2014. Are they t...

Re: Wednesday, December 23, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Twenty correct today, ten in each round, plus an insta-Final makes blackjack. After being disappointed by the game quality post-ToC, I'm much more satisfied with the intensity of the contests this last week or two. A game champion in Theresa bows out to a worthy successor in Chandreyi after an inten...

Sometimes you get your board, and sometimes the board gets you. Tiombi got her board today, that's for sure. Glad Sam got to stick around for Final, it would really hurt to see the champ bow out early. Also glad he got the We Three Kings reversal in his favor; I had never heard of the rest of the ti...

If I can kvetch: what the fork has happened the last three or four games? So many unrevealed clues, negs, premature buzzes...jeez. Is it the players? Is it the post-Tournament crash of excitement? I don't know. On a more positive note, I did insta-get Final for the first time in...weeks, so now I ca...

Re: Tuesday, November 24, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

In hindsight, it's extremely unlikely that Jeopardy! would present a FJ clue with either Clint Eastwood or Mel Gibson as the response. Ahh, what the hell, let's just say it'll never happen. I can understand why you would think Gibson's name would never be invoked in FJ, but why Eastwood? All I can ...

Re: An apology for last night

I'd like to apologize to Adrian Beltré for heckling him all those long years ago. Earlier this year at a AAA game, I heckled sporadic major leaguer Domonic Brown of the Phillies/IronPigs. He went one-for-four, then stared directly at me and scowled. He's unemployed now, and I feel partially respons...
