I quickly wrote down Sacramento and Reno and put my pen down.
I had those 2 but quickly remembered that Carson City is the capital and changed it in time.

Re: J! in the Media

"On Alex Trebek’s Final ‘Jeopardy!,’ a Last Introduction From a Friend" Johnny Gilbert, 92, started on the game show with Trebek in 1984.

How does one get "Carolina" from "Charles"?
The Latin for Charles is Carolus, change to the feminine suffix -ina and there you go. Similar as Georgia is named for King George II. Also District of Columbia for Christopher Columbus.

We were puzzling over why this game was rebroadcast this week. Presumably it was for Alex’s trip to the AFB in Japan,

Re: Local station contact list

There's usually NBA basketball on all day on ABC affiliates, so that'll be a tough one.

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 4 (1/14/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The most surprising takeaway from me about the entire tournament was not Brad not being able to buzz in against Ken and James, but his numerous wrong responses in DD finds.

Before & After categories used to be relegated to the far right column. Now, it seems like they can appear anywhere.

Can't remember the exact wording of the clue, but why was "crossatlantic" disallowed? Seems like an acceptable alternative for transatlantic.

You play to win the game.

Amazing since it seemed Roey owned the signaling device most of the game.

James Holzhauer confirms Final Jeopardy! response rule change



(Skip to 15:10 if it doesn't automatically)

I don't know if anything official was posted here, but many of us assumed it: no more "Hi Mom!" et al. when writing your FJ! response.

For comparison Julia Collins won $428,100 in her 20 game streak. James beat that total in his 8th game. This is not a knock on Julia, just shows what a powerhouse James has been.
