Extended Credits alert.

After DD1 it was 13200 and minus 1000 each for the challengers. From there it was only a matter of Matt's 34x total and it ended up big time.

BASEBALL HALL OF FAMERS went 4/5 for me as I could not decipher the $600 Yankee quickly enough.

What is it with J! players and a famous fish movie/book? Matt sole-solved a FJ! clue in August and today it was worse with an 0/3 in 4-LETTER BOOK TITLES.

Mike converted DD2 in RIVERS OF ASIA and naturally made another pick there. :roll: Later it was worse with a $400 clue pick. Sure, give Matt even more advantages.

For a precall off the FJ! category I wrote T.M.N.T. and inspired by there being an Elizabeth Mitchell player I started writing characters from Lost even though I figured those names were Enlightenment.

For the FJ! clue I matched Matt as my spelling would not have an acceptable botch like Mike had in securing his 2nd place money.

For the what if game, Matt could have done 10-12 large on DD3 instead of "just" 5000 and taken a swing at 6 figures. Since Matt likes baseball I thought he could have tried to run the category bottom up to build up more money before working the bottom rows and eventually finding the first DD.

The game was over as soon as it started. I'm sorry I made judgements about the outcome of the game after the first few clues.

Only suspense was if Matt will break Craig's 1 day record. Surprised that Matt didn't play DD2. That would have put Matt in 6 digit category.

Matt mentioned about his audition in Boston. That must be pre pandemic.

Matt's becoming stronger by the day.
Easy FJ.
Good enough to lose on Jeopardy!

He had $15,200 at the first commercial.

There are days where that's a winning score.

This was so weird for me tonight! 25 years ago today I lost my second game because my Final Jeopardy response in 15th Century Men was Machiavelli. Tonight Matt Amodio won $83,000 by responding Machiavelli for the FJ category Renaissance Men. I guess I was just ahead of my time :(

Nothing against Matt, but I’d like to see a competitive game once in a while.

I saw a preview before the show that had Matt saying “34 wins?”. So I had a feeling he would win. By the first break I was pretty certain of it.

I started with Martin Luther (only four years off) before switching to the right guy.

You could have spotted me "Machia" and I still would have missed this.

I don't usually come on here and complain about the clue writing quality, but that clue about how Marconi pioneered wireless phone service didn't sit right with me. Don't look for it in the Archive.
