pretty sure that's not Rand's picture on his contestant page.
Pretty sure or totally sure? If it's not, any theories on how it got there? I do remember the fun time we had some four years ago trying to figure out if Charles Kaufman was the now-famous screenwriter (we determined not). I imagine I put up the picture of Rand at the same time that I put up the picture of Charles.
Come on now, that is definitely Rand Owen's picture. He would put his specs on to play. I have zero doubt about it.

For names I'm fine with Reisman with alternates being Raisman and adding an N at the end for either variation.

For Ed other possibles are Vilay or Villay?

Great seeing those S18 earlier games in the hopper as I did not have them on tape and thought I would have to call in a favor down the road.

I just remembered that I had shared a photo of Rand when doing one of his other games: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=637&p=251034#p251034

Not as sure as I was half an hour ago. (Maybe glasses were an adequate disguise for Superman.)

The head on our pic looks taller, but that could be the angle. The nose and mouth look exactly the same though, don't they?

My memory is jogged sufficiently that I am totally sure I did the screencap of him at the same time I did Charles Kaufman and I must have been working from a tape of the show, which I am not sure how I had.

I took the Joanne challenge and had the $400 name as the possible top box although I did consider the right guy. The one I dismissed was $600 in recalling the space in her name to think she was out.
I took the challenge, too, even though it wasn't directed at me, and got the right guy.

Wow. Game ran fast. I also noticed that Sonic the Hedgehog was a question.

Nice high-scoring totals by the teens.

At chat time Linda talked about wanting to be a surgeon and Alex asked if she watched Chicago Hope or ER. Linda shared that ER was her favorite show. Uncle Alex went a step further in working in an Eriq La Salle reference.
It was Linda’s day as ANATOMY came up in the DJ! round and then MEDICINE in the FJ! round.

If there are more tourney requests please post today or otherwise I will go back to 1989 College next week.

Requests by all four posters seen and I can honor one of each next week and for a fifth game I expect to do will cycle back to jeff since he was first in. As time allows I'll work on the others with the hope/expectation I have most of the wanted games. The ones I suspect are most problematic are a 1988 senior game I recall not having and a memory that the tape I have for the 1990 Teen QF games is very fussy.

We welcome the "Bye-Lo Baby" to the J-Canon, although you can probably leave it off your flashcards.

WOMEN IN THE NEWS for $200 has an extra "a" in the first line.

Svetlana Stalin was also a correct response in the previous year's Seniors Tourney.
