probably temporary, but still
Upon actually seeing it applied I've already been convinced it was a terrible idea. :oops:

This is EXACTLY how I referred to you when I showed my kids the miracle baseball clip you posted the other day! :D

My game wasn't much of a contest, so...how about "Jeopardy participant?"
Are you kidding me? What about "Sailed under Cap'n Crunch"?

Nixon's enemies list is a good template for "people Woof admires." I'll have to examine Colson's "master list" and see if that still holds.
Still feeling the love for #13?
Hah! Nope, love it ain't. I still respect his legislative accomplishments, but that's now part of a stew of emotions that includes disappointment and moral outrage.
Fair enough. I feel that way about Charlie Rose. I always liked his interviews, but damn.

I’d like to be “swimming in the Jeopardy! pool” too, but I’d rather do it by way of a successful audition :lol:

Because I have now taken a test, I would like to be reverted to my default rank, whatever that may be.

Thanks.
