The FJ! clue had me swing a miss as I did 1964 to My Fair Lady and wrote Rex Harrison. Fortunately, that was only one strike and as soon as I finished writing I knew who to switch to for a sure-thing swing & hit.
To be fair, Audrey Hepburn could have apologized, too.

Re: Besides Ken, Brad, and James, what other contestants could be considered GOAT?

I'll throw in a vote for Mike Dupee. Also Frank Spangenburg, Jerome Vered, Dan Melia and a few others. Probably all too old now to keep up - I know I certainly am not as quick to recall as I was.

Re: Holzhauer betting for 2nd in the TOC to make more money?

I'm assuming the total prize money includes the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds, where JH could accumulate $150,000 if he achieves his average of about $75,000 per game. Then he would need over $100,000 for his 2-day final. If this is how the TOC cumulative money works (big if) then it's certainl...

Re: Tuesday, June 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The FJ! clue was an embarrassment for me as I spent the break working off LANDMARKS to never once consider anything outside the U.S. during the several minutes. Fortunately, the reveal of the clue made it easy to switch gears to match the contestants. Kinda funny, I was thinking how American-centri...

Re: Quick Rules Q

I've watched the show for many years, and I have a quick rules Q, and sorry if it may sound dumb: If there is a three-way tie at the start of Double Jeopardy!, then who gets to go first? The player closest to Alex, or do they draw numbers (I know that historically, for a two-way tie at the start of...

Re: Monday, June 3, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I just hate he had to lose when he was so close to beating Ken Jennings cash earnings record. One or two more wins, he would have passed him. Even more unusual, his loss comes one day after the fifteenth anniversary of Ken’s first game and the fifth anniversary of Julia’s loss. Hopefully James will...

Re: Wednesday, April 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The All-Star tournament only had players who made their debuts in 2000 or later. So yes, another supertournament is in order. It could have a variety of other 2000's and 2010's top players (including superchamps) who weren't picked for All-Stars, plus the greats from the 80's and 90's. Coelacanth h...

Re: Nightmare Categories

In my first game, I had Agriculture Hall of Fame. Did not see that one coming - as far as I know, it's never been used before or since. Luckily, nobody else was very good at it, either.

Re: Should the Teen Tournament Winner Get a TOC Invite?

Absolutely, yes. Amanda Goad was in my TOC and very nearly made the final. There's no good reason to exclude them that I can see.
