Re: Millionaire 2016-17 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

Out of curiosity, what's the Jeff Richmond/kinescope reference? I'm guessing that someone filmed a game off the TV monitor, but I'm sure I'm missing something here . . .

IronNeck wrote:Props to SwanShadow for taking that $30,000 question with good humor.

To me, it's an awful question and a fine example of how to eliminate an excellent trivia mind from the game.

Re: Millionaire 2016-17 Season Discussion [SPOILERS]

I have it on pretty decent authority that someone slightly familiar to old-school J! fans might be making a Millionaire appearance on Monday, 12/5.
