There seems to be a date issue for this game. Jerry Frankel's fifth game is listed as being right before this game, which included a returning one-day champ.

I did a google search for "Michael Pick Arcadia CA" and got this.

https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/31889496/

I didn't want to sign up for a free trial to read the article, but the link given after I googled it said one of the winners was a Michael Pick. The headline said it was some bank contest for high school seniors. In the interview he said he was 25 and was introduced as an auditor. So if he was a senior in 1977 with an interest in banking, being an auditor at 25 in 1985 would line up.

I reckoned the date based on Liz's other game already in the archive. December 31, 1984 appears in the Final Jeopardy resource, and does not match this game, so Liz's 4th game is wrong too.

Or else the resource has some screwy early dates in it, since I searched the board and found the discussion about the dating of Liz's 4th game. I don't know. Michael Pannoni dated it 1985 on his DailyMotion page.

The 3/12/1992 episode is up in the Archive now; it was uploaded by one of the contestants who was on that episode.

The very next day, though....
SpoilerShow
The champion on that episode was ousted by Phil Yellman, who would go on to win five games on his own.

I understand you were dealing with what information you had. I watched part of the video and it seems odd Alex never said it was New Year's Eve. Unless, of course, the show didn't start airing the same day in all markets and they avoid commenting on the day to not confuse people.

If you please, I would like to request the January 29, 2002, episode, as it had an unusual judgment call in FJ, if I am remembering correctly.
1/29/02 is in: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=1386

My coin landed on "was", but I"m open to changing it to "is."

As for the judgment call in the FJ! round. I'm fine with last name only as I don't see him getting that far in solving it and then thinking it was the other guy.

Yeah, that's an "is".

I was remembering this as him not getting credit for just Ford, so I was not remembering correctly. Thanks for entering this game.

And I agree with David on "is".

I've made the change for the FJ! response. Thanks guys. What? You can't remember every detail from a game 15 years ago? ;)
