Re: Season 28 airdates

Stop trashing sanitation workers. I didn't make that comment expecting it to be a sanitation worker trashing thread. Apologies if it came off that way, but it was meant to make fun of the idea of specializing occupations. I mean, aside from dope dealers as an "occupation", there's not much lower on...

Of course you know they'll run out of ideas when we have: "THIS IS THE JEOPARDY GARBAGEMEN'S TOURNAMENT!"

Re: Season 28 airdates

why have another teachers' tournament? There are other professions... Alex always says that teachers (along with students and lawyers) make the best contestants. There is no reason to have a special tournament just for them. Have one for professions who are under-represented on Jeopardy. Off-hand, ...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

Then I can say that CDOT half-assed a clearly useful station. But with Union Station, you won't be seeing much more than that. I'd love to see SLE dumped in favor of a Metro-North extension to New London. Yeah, I think you're right on--but as you say, when you have a beautiful old station half a mi...

Season 23, one of the ones not pre-empted by Jennings did not have a ToC.

Hey Roadgeek--is your avatar the State Street station? Yep, taken this July when I was in Hamden and New Haven for an event. I do wish I could make my avatars bigger though. http://www.flickr.com/photos/roadgeek/5972658929/in/set-72157627274586972/ Nice. That station's a stone throw from me--I have...

Re: About This Board

Um...I may have to say no, per External Links rules. So, uh, what is the section at the bottom entitled, "External links" for then? While I don't know all of their rules, I would think that the place where the show is discussed would be rather pertinent to the entry and helpful to someone looking t...

Re: Boardies on the Show - Season 28

Suze and JBillyGirl, could you please tell me how Alex was during your tapings? Did he hobble or stand in the not usual places (for instance, was he always behind the mike, and not in front of the contestants during either the interviews or FJ!) These have been mentioned in other threads already. D...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

and roadgeek - I can't believe someone actually wants to visit these places. We moved from Churchill to Haida Gwaii in the late 80's, and I remember thinking, even as a youngster: "Why do people CHOOSE to live in places like northern Manitoba? Do they know there are other places to live?" Now that ...

Re: Boardies on the Show

Probably should be adjusted to "Boardies on the Show - Season 28" for consistency. ;)

Good luck to Suze and Jbillygirl, should be some interesting games.

Negative, not getting my license till I am 23 or 24. No need for one. My sister is driving and she's 16, but I don't care really.

I know Sundance, Manitoba is basically a ghost town, I thought some people still existed in Leaf Rapids, could be wrong.

Do Saskatchewanians call Manitobans Saskatchewannabees? No, those are Albertans. We just call Manitobans idiots. They call us banjo-picking toothless hillbillies, which is odd because we have no hills. Of course I want to go to take a trip to Lynn Lake MB and GIllam MB along with Kinoosao SK some d...

Re: 2010-11 Tournament of Champions Standings (spoilers)

I may have Sara in Bronze, but in no way do I consider her there in the same degree of Lisa Klink & Deborah Fitzgerald. Lisa was pretty dominant in her games. That class of 2009 was a tough bunch. Regarding the current field for the next ToC, I have Christopher Short in gold in place of Jay Rhee. I...

If it doesn't already exist, I'm thinking that a complete listing of J! champs that links their board handles and their on-camera names may be worthwhile... It kind of exists on the J-Archive -- if you look up a player, it shows their board name. Of course, that may not be the same name as they hav...

I was wondering if a thread like this was going to show up. My name is Adam Moss. I am a 3rd year college student at Middlesex County College, one of Jersey's 19 community colleges, double majoring in Civil Engineering and Liberal Arts-History.
