Re: Thursday, November 13, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Those boards...yuck. I think it's safe to say that opinion was shared by Terry and Sarah as well. I was thrilled seeing the Marvel category. "Movies by Century" seemed to be in my wheelhouse as well, but the stress got to me and I completely brain-farted on the final two films. I knew exactly when t...

Re: ToC players: how much warning did you get?

I checked in with Maggie a few weeks ago. I had the same concerns as Sarah regarding travel--I'm getting married in June and August is the only time we had available for a honeymoon. Her response was...vague. I didn't care to know when exactly the ToC was, just that if there was a chance it would b...

Re: ToC players: how much warning did you get?

Would travel insurance really cover that? I've heard they're pretty tough to collect on. Highly unlikely. They basically only cover sickness/hospitalization/death/natural disaster of biblical proportions. Looks like I started a whole thing here. "Travel Insurance" wasn't the correct phrase I guess-...

Re: ToC players: how much warning did you get?

Why dont you contact someone at the show and ask them? An email to Maggie & team is not unreasonable contact. Too bad Sarah did not ask yesterday. I could have said at the Battles taping that Alex talked about too many champs qualifying for the next TOC and that for the first time some 5-time champ...

Re: Calling All TOCers 2003 - 2013

Something I'm obviously curious about is whether they'll include big winners who haven't had the chance to compete in a ToC yet. Ben Ingram and I both won 8 games in season 29. Considering there won't be a new ToC before the Decades Tourney, I hope they at least consider Ben and I in the conversatio...

Re: Wednesday, July 10, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Just as I said about Drew Horwood, anyone who can win eight games on Jeopardy! has to be pretty good... Sure, Ben isn't hugely dominant, but who says ever multi win champ MUST be? I don't know why, it just bugs me when some try to marginalize a contestant's success on the show. Both Ben and Drew ha...

Re: Thursday, July 11, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I always enjoy the amusing "Before and After" clues more than the tough ones. The potential for comedy in these is simply too great. "Dirty Harry Reid" made me crack up.

Strong games by the challengers, but I'm excited to see what Ben can do now in the ToC.
