No guess Tuesday.
No trouble with the draft.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

Waffled a bit between Equator and Tropic of Capricorn, but settled on Equator.

Watch Jeopardy on ABC in New York, so no draft impact.

I think this is the first time I've pulled 3 for 3 on the daily doubles that have been chosen.

So far I'm the only Kilamanjaro miss after deciding against Victoria Falls.
Marie Antoinette but believe her to be a Polish (?) girl of limited means based on some movie I can't recall.
First time to get the extra clues. Confusing clue syntax and categories prevented my 8-fer.

Marie-Antoinette Friday - flipping back and forth, my Patriots were on the clock right during Final (of course they traded the pick :roll: ) so I missed the first 20 seconds of think music - I might have gotten to Guinevere otherwise, but we'll never know.

Surprised that the contestants only pulled a 50% this week.

Thanks Mark for putting the NFL draft pre-emption up as a poll.

Well, I didn't go 8/8, but I did get the alternate answers on the ones I missed. So that's something.

Didn't get any traction on either Tuesday or Friday.
I get J! at 4:30 PM on NBC, so no problems this week.

First 8/8 week in at least a couple of months -- thank goodness for CotD on J! official web site to give me a shot at the FJs during pre-emption.

Three FJs polling at or over 90% and only one under 50%. As of my poll completion, the mean for the week is 77.4%. I'm not a statistical historian, but subjectively that seems pretty high.
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

I'm very lucky in that I watch J! out of an independent TV station from Lawrence, KS which is guaranteed to show it no matter what. It doesn't broadcast news, special live events, or special Christmas/Thanksgiving programming.
Never been on J!, but once won a knockoff version that aired on local access TV.
