I may be wrong (Stefan clarify), but Celeste DiNucci managed to lock Watson I believe.

Re: Reretaken Down

At least some government officials have a sense of humor: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2012/al11/al112012.discus.020.shtml Don't know if I'd consider a meteorologist a "government official"... A lot of the NHC makes cracks like that. Dr. Avila and Dr. Franklin are quite well known for doing such.

I figure since the man covered is Jeopardy-related, this might be worth posting.

and NHO Jeremy Lin or Shawn White. So clearly you haven't watched any news affiliate for I don't know, the last 8 months? Hey, I'm a newsophile (the executive producer of CBC News once called me a "news junkie". I wear that as a badge of honour. That's how hardcore I am.) and I clammed both, Lin on...

Re: Summer Repeats

They didn't rerun the 2010 TofC that SUmmer, so this is good to them see rerunning this. I suspect they'll rerun the Power Players' week, which means that one of the tourney reruns will only see the second week repeated. I can't imagine them not rerunning Teen or COllege. Probably the Teen 2nd week...

Re: Just saw this on the J! webpage

http://www.jeopardy.com/news/alextaping.php I am however, digging the new logo. Am very excited to see the opening graphics for Season 29. The fact there's a new logo there (that I didn't notice before! Thanks, Adam!) might well mean that is a screenshot from season 29, just not a game that any pla...

My dad and I had stand and stares (not something I like doing.) When trampoline was revealed as correct, I remembered that I saw a news piece of olympic trampoline sports. I immediately proceeded to slap myself in the face for that. - Note, there are some Jerseyans who are going to be in the Olympic...

I've heard of The Artist, but I did miss it. (I didn't like the choice of clue words. If you've never watched the film, such as myself, kind of hard to know that.) I was seriously rooting for Mike to win again. Not impressed by Andy or Lisa whatsoever. Well, at least this season is almost over. (I'm...

Now I've used and seen at points Anthony "Mad" Wayne. Would that be acceptable, since Mad is in the middle not at the front?

(That was how I responded when the clue showed up.)

I think paradox fits in better with the other names, got that appeal over blunder. Besides, blunder is negative. :)

Re: Tuesday, July 17, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Interesting wager from our champion-- like she gave it no real consideration, just carefree pick a number for a round total wager. One might say she wagered Blythely. Not the word I'd use. Anyone who wagers solely to end up on a round number deserves to lose. The Blythe Paradox? (I like that note) ...

Re: Happy Anniversary to Us!

306 is 25th, somehow I expected the 25th most wouldn't be below 500.. Those 25 totaled 16,133 posts. That's almost 49 percent of the yearly total. 27 people account for half of the postings on this board. I just hit 900, and speaking on behalf of the 25 of us atop that list, we'll try to shut up a ...

Rhianna came to me instantly, but I never thought of Adele. I guess because, to the best of my knowledge, I haven't heard any of her songs.

Judges: "Portuguese water poodle" for "Portuguese water dog"? (I seemed to recall the Obamas were looking at a particular breed of hypoallergenic poodle for the First Dog. I'd have to say no. The Water Poodle seems to be a mixed breed. I almost said waterhound a la Jeff Kirby, then remembered Portu...

I got final after about 15 seconds, saw Haiti as immediate negbait (people may disagree with me), but the obvious part is its not an independent island.
