WOW.
Seeing this again, it struck me that after a clue or two, Alex picked up his pace as well. Hardly fazed him.

Love the video, opus; shared it with the contestants group on Facebook.

I tweeted it to Niki and hopefully followed BobF's instructions properly. I'm not sure how to tell if I was successful.

I think Alex says this because the 1987 and 1988 ToCs were won by the player who finished the first final match in third. The third place comeback was solidified in his mind as a frequent occurrence at that point, and no number of times it doesn't happen will dislodge it from there.
