Re: Friday, November 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

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...

Re: Wednesday, October 30, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

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 ...

Re: Wednesday, July 31, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

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...

Re: Wednesday, July 31, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

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...

Re: Wednesday, July 17, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

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.

Re: New Set For Season 30?

The current set only has lasted four seasons(not counting its debut at the TofC in Vegas the season before), if that's true. The other sets(save for the first one in 1984-85) have lasted from five years and two months(grid set) to six years and nine months(November 2002-Summer 2009 for the set befo...

New Set For Season 30?

Rumor has it from an official staff member's facebook that the Jeopardy set will be new for Season 30.

First I've heard of anything so if anyone else has heard anything, fill-ins would help. Sorry I don't have any links, passing on something one of my friends gave me word of.

At the other end of the spectrum was Eric Schoeck who came off as a foul-mouthed poor sport. Hey, at least this wasn't nearly as bad as fellow 1996 competitor Barbara Lowe (who, being a 5-time winner, would also be on the list if not for her being, well, Barbara Lowe. She'd be on the "No chance in ...

To be honest, I always personally like J.J. Todor. I feel he should be in it, but I'm questioning that they would.

Re: Calling All TOCers Class of 2000

According to IMDB (take that as you will),

Darlene was invited but found to have a conflict that prevented it.

I also apologize if it was common knowledge and I'm just ignorant.

That was a nasty DD at the end, though. As a NYer, even I wasn't sure whether it was Lake George or Champlain, especially since George does have a boat called the Ethan Allen . (Or used to, you may have heard a couple summers back one by that name got overloaded, capsized, and some seniors died.) A...

Re: Thursday, March 28, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

On the Erie County fronts, I said, NY, then remembered I-90's length through PA as about 42 miles (is actually 46), then shouted in the air, NO! PA! just before Alex revealed that. I feel a little less annoyed after that one. Also, the other clue in the category I thought about: Presque Isle in this...

Being a Whitestone native, that Queens category was a fun sweep. :) (Albeit I was yelling at the TV when it came to Waldorf-Queens Hotel....)

Maybe he means 514, which is Montreal ... which I only know as I had to dial it on Wednesday. :)
My comment meant I got this wrong. ;) - I didn't know where 416 was, so I guessed on that one. As I said I know where 415 is. :(

Re: Friday, March 1, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I'm with TP Hammer here, mostly for its placement as a $200 clue. I knew this one from reading the book and seeing the movie, but I think that's too obscure for $200. I thought the non-Texas reference should have been to the Ukrainian port. I tend to agree, albeit I got it, I would've flipped this ...
