That's a "berry" tough spelling judgment.

Full Credit alert.

The guy Matt said he got some clothes from including today's sweater: https://www.j-archive.com/showplayer.ph ... r_id=14154

The mental misfirings on J2 had me laughing as I marked my LT although I get how someone (even Matt) could go astray that way.

Uh, Mayim, unless you are Hammer, it's no great math feat to add two angles and deduct the sum from 180 to get the other angle. But, nice of you to compliment with, "Quick math."

The FJ! clue had me match Matt for correct spelling. Tyler lost pride though no money on his horseshoes/grenades/nuclear weapons.

Matt loves the DJ! round. For a bit with DD2 and DD3 hiding and Tyler in range it was possible for today to have been more of a contest. Nope, by the end not even close.

Matt's the first player in the 17 years since Ken's massive streak to even get HALFWAY to his total number of wins! Just let that sink in for a minute...

We have a Golf here, but not a Tennis. If we did, the post would be:
I wonder if Tyler would have known it's Wimbledon and not Wimbleton?

Took a guess with Biathalon. Was proud of it for a moment. How in the world have I never noticed it?

Matt's $3,000 wager on DD3 looks like barely a blip on the game dynamics graph. I had to go check the clue to make sure that he didn't wager $5.

Even with my sports trivia background, for a long time I too thought it was biathalon and triathalon. Sometimes I still come close to adding the extra syllable when speaking.

But since I learned, I’ve been waiting for that extra syllable to bite somebody in the butt. At least it was not a financial hit.

I believe the Archive had Tyler's response and the correct response reversed. I've made the change directly.

Trash:. Winston Smith (weird responses on that one), underdogs ( Holzhauser woulda been all over that :lol: ) & pyres. Didn't pick up fumarole. :|
Big clues:. :D :D :D :mrgreen: spelling correct.
Coulda swore I've heard it pronounced w/the extra syllable, tho :? Probably up there w/nuke-you-ler as a pronunciation.

None of them have the middle 'a' in them, even decathlon, which tends to be pronounced with it more than the others, I think.

The extra a didn’t matter in the above game. Remembering this one got me to spell it correctly tonight.

I would have loved to see the social media firestorm if Tyler had hit the DDs, gotten on a roll and went into FJ with the lead and then lost because of the judges’ ruling.

The incorrect "i" in
Spoiler
"Luisitania"
in the 9/24 FJ! wasn't considered to be an extra syllable, they found
Spoiler
"cruise"
as an example where the "i" is silent to justify accepting the wrong answer..Logically, they could have ruled that the incorrect "a" in "biathalon" is silent, as it is in "logically."

This article explains why you get negged for mispronouncing "biathlon" with an extra syllable https://www.saturdayeveningpost.com/201 ... -jeopardy/

But misspelling an FJ! in a way that doesn't change the meaning is not necessarily the same. Not a big deal, but I think it's funny.

Checking the recording I see that Alex said (approximately): We'll accept that, even though you misspelled it.
