Re: Thursday, April 23, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Is that the first time they've done a split screen "We'll be back with FJ right after this?". Usually they show it with the open podium.

Re: News about Paucle

Rest in peace my good man. You have made the most of the splendid torch life has given you, even if it ended too young.

His family and friends (along with other JBoarders who might have been said friends) is in my thoughts and prayers.

Re: Thursday, March 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wow. OK historians, someone surely knows the last time we had a single player in FJ? I don't remember ever seeing it, nor do I remember someone being as far in the negative as Stephanie. You never know how nerves are gonna hit you until they hit you. It's a new record as far as we know. Fellow boar...

Jonathan Corbblah counts, yes? Wherever there is a game show, there Jonathan Corbblah be. From his j-archive page (I added The Chase info): Jonathan won $14,500 on Wheel of Fortune on 2014-12-17. Jonathan won $60,000 on The Chase on 2013-08-06. Jonathan won $13,000 on Jeopardy! on 2010-12-13 Jonath...

Re: Isaac Mizrahi giving Jeopardy! contestants a bad name

I saw this clip yesterday but wasn't sure who it was. At the time I was facepalming. Knowing it's Mizrahi really makes me disappointed.

Re: Ties on Jeopardy! RIP

Does a triple zero game go to a tiebreaker now too? Lord, help us! I hope not. Brian Johnny's intro might be interesting "....whose 1-day cash winnings are *chuckle*$0*chuckle*" Audience might get a kick out of that. Now if it were Bob Harris portraying another zero, I believe the internet would cr...

Oof, that was not a good game. I'm predicting no more clues about CIA directors; that whole category was TSes. I think that's the first all-TS category since that Broadway one in that one terrible game last January. Starting with a tough name like Allen Dulles didn't help! That shouldn't haven't ev...

The first Republican Party ticket ran in 1856.

Re: What is your favorite part of Jeopardy!?

I have always loved seeing the TOC, but that's because I love seeing champs go on 5+ runs. This season has been a lot of fun in that regard.

If it matters any, JLD passed Lucille Ball, 14-13, when you count lead and supporting only. If you count nominations for a guest actress, Betty White zooms up to 16 and the lead. I don't feel so bad on my Betty White response now. This stuff in general is not my strength, but Betty White is the def...

Well, that is the 2nd Teacher's Tourney I called the winner in my book upon their QF match. (Colby Burnett and John Pearson). I'm not however convinced he'll do as excellent in the TOC, but major props to him are in order. Also, I've noticed, especially during this tournament, that the "We'll be bac...

Someone takes too much time studying about Indiana when you run it with relative ease. I've read every Sue Grafton book except for the new one (W is for Wasted) so yeah, easiest run of the night. Maybe its the TOC geek in me, but I'm not been exactly enjoying the runs since Jared Hall lost. A 4-day ...

I had to dash over to the Sony board to read through all the threads. That is a small sampling of the reaction across the country. There have to be a lot of angry viewers tonight. It's a shame that moment is taking away from what Skyler accomplished. On this board we know all of the previous misspe...

He has the fourth highest one day regular game total of all time, behind Roger Craig $77K, Kenjen $75K, and Andy Richter $68K. Pre November 1001, however, Jerome Vered had $34K under the old values. Andy's game saw time ran out before the second DD could be found, so he, like tonight's winner, miss...

Given I just followed 30 miles of the Tippecanoe through three counties on Friday, I damn well better have not gotten that wrong. (In fact US Rivers was a lot of fun to run.)

I won't ask how final was a TS today, it shouldn't have been.

For all I know, it could've been the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission.

That would be ironic given the PTC didn't exist until the 1930s.

Also, all I have to say why didn't he wager $99 in final? $137,731 looks a lot more cool than $137,732.
