A Grand Master Champion? Is that like Chesspardy! or something? :)
It's a unique distinction

Re: Monday, January 7, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Anybody besides me weep when "He played Meathead" drew blank stares from all three players? Sort of. I couldn't pull out the first name quickly enough. Knew it wasn't Carl, but that was all that was coming, so I figured I'd ring in and say "Reiner" and think of the first name in the time it took Al...

Re: Wednesday, January 2, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I actually attended a few games in the Coliseum. My first major league ballgame was the last that Don Newcombe pitched for the Bums. I remember the "Great Wall of China" and the appellation given to the home runs hit over it well. That very tall screen made "power hitters" out of players like Wally ...

I guess I've flunked pop culture. MDW went into hysterics last night when I admitted that I can't distinguish between Ben Afflect, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon. After hitting Wikipedia today, I'm even surer that they're clones.

Re: 2013 Online Test Registration Is Open

For what it's worth a J! ad from Alex last night gave info on a location for auditions> He said "Jeopardy! is coming to Toronto looking for contestants..." The context was promoting the adult test, but I think that the information may be useful.

Re: Thursday, December 27, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

addendum: if you make it on and you are the champ between the lunch break games, don't eat. Back in the day (and on the old site) there were some great war stories on that theme. I think it was Pastor Dave who needed a taping delay after a grilled cheese sandwich (heavily buttered) at the commisary...

Re: Wednesday, December 26, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Kris' strength seems to be buzzer speed. You could see the frustration on the competitors. There's been an awful lot of tasty Lach trash on the bottom of the boards. Wondering about that. He seems to have buzzer speed, but he's either hesitant or unsure on tough clues outside his wheelhouse. It'll ...

Re: Wednesday, December 26, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I said Messina for Messalina. Is your give a damn busted? Um, TPH, I think this is more a Loggins & Messina or Messina, Italy, crowd as opposed to Jo Dee Messina, though it's certainly conceivable to appreciate all three. I even picked up Jo Dee's autograph at a NASCAR-and-country-music show. Great...

Re: 2013 Online Test Registration Is Open

With the wide range of audition options and some of the strange pairings (Toronto/Buffalo was an interesting coin flip), I wonder if the choice of cities might not be another screening tool ('We'll choose for auditions from those who've picked the cities that we audition in". Was it Harris who empha...

It's not rhyming, but it's alliterative and appropriate.
