I did also get Lawrence Welk. How many other famous people are from North Dakota? Roger Maris?

Roger Maris is from Hibbing, Minnesota. Bob Dylan is from the same town.

Re: What's in store for the 3 Jeopardy giants after GOAT?

I say don't let them be in any more tournaments (they've won enough), but if they want to continue to trade on their J! notoriety they might offer themselves to stand at stud to produce the next generation of greats. Just a thought... That is coffee-on-the-keyboard funny - thanks for the laugh. I, ...

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

Congratulations to Ken! I figured when he won Friday's match that he would win the next match because he sorta spoiled it in his tweets! On Sunday, Dec 8, Ken tweeted about the flight he was on. Then on Wednesday, December 11, he also tweeted about the flight he was on. So I figured that he taped th...

I have to wonder what the level of difficulty of the answer/questions will be.
Along with a Greatest of All time category, I bet there will also be a goat category. The mammal kind.

Re: Your Screenname: What inspired it?

My screenname is the title of what was my favorite Bob Dylan song at the time I joined back in 2014. I still love the song, but now my favorite Dylan song is "To Ramona." I don't think I'll be allowed to change it. :lol:

Re: Tuesday, April 30, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I 've seen elsewhere where James was referred to as "The Joey Chestnut of Jeopardy", so I laughed out loud when Joey Chestnut came up in the Brooklyn category. (Chestnut wins the July 4 hot dog eating contest every year in Coney Island.)

I wonder just how many stations will pre-empt Jeopardy! for the NFL Draft. WABC in New York did. Ugh. :evil: I'm like an addict without my fix. And the usual "smuggler" has been prevented by Sony from uploading episodes to his usual cache. <<sweating and shaking >>. Does anyone in NYC area k-k-know...

At the beginning after James's total was announced look at the young man in the audience and his reaction.

That's James' wife sitting behind that young man, looking toward the camera.

Re: Sony Reportedly Searching For Alex's Replacement

I read recently that The Powers That Be (Sony) have said they will not want to change anything about how the game is played but they want to "refresh" it. To me "refresh" means "dumb down." I hope I'm wrong. I've been watching this wonderful show since the Art Fleming days as a child, at 12 Noon whe...

For those of you who "can't get past Emma's voice", or that her voice is like "fingernails on a chalkboard," you do realize that she has a speech defect, don't you? Most probably due to something physical like maybe she was a preemie or she has had jaw surgery to correct something. It's definitely s...

Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

I root for the "underemployed:" Folks with low-paying jobs or no-paying jobs. I always root for "stay at home moms and dads" and "homemakers." I root for mail carriers, bartenders, fire lookouts, cashiers, police officers,secretaries, etc. I rooted for Brad Rutter who worked in a vintage record stor...

Austin Rogers from Season 34 has a new podcast. Buzzy Cohen was a guest and on his second show and they had a very interesting discussion on Jeopardy preparation and strategy. At the end of the one and half hour show, they briefly talked about the upcoming team tournament. The podcast is called "A L...

I wonder if Arthur Chu turned it down? I would feel bad if they didn't offer it to him. I know he wasn't popular and I certainly wasn't a fan at the time of his run, but since I've watched the documentary about him I've become more sympathetic. :cry:

Maybe age was a factor in getting FJ today. I'm old enough to remember when the Kennedys were in office.
