Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

It takes an incredible amount of courage to stand in front of a camera and tell the world that you have been diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. It takes a certain personality to be able to do that and then make a joke that will make everyone watching chuckle through their tears. Alex Trebek,...

Re: Will be in Santa Monica; O'Brien's

So for Thanksgiving week, I am treating myself to a train trip of the Western United States (focusing mostly on California). I will be staying in Santa Monica on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, and I am being bugged to go to O'Brien's. I am not exactly the greatest socialite in the world, blame autis...

Re: Will be in Santa Monica; O'Brien's

There are several regulars who don't drink alcohol for whatever reason (for me, it tends to be a crapshoot whether I get a beer or soda), and besides which, the place serves food too. So don't let the pub aspect of pub quiz keep you away. It's not just that, Stefan. I will be all alone, I don't hav...

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.

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...

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...

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...
