Re: BASEBALL NICKNAMES 2/26/21 category [Spoilers]

Got all five. I saw Jeter play at home against the Braves in 2006, as well as at some point in Anaheim against the Angels. I may have seen Johnson pitch at some point, but I don't remember.

Coryat: $40,600 52 R/4 W DD: 3/3 FJ: :mrgreen: LT: Oxford, Slave, nuclear power, blackball Another very good FJ! wager from the champ. OTOH, I hated Syed's wager on DD3. $3000 did little to improve his standing in the match. Given that it was a themed category, I think it was the right spot to go TD...

Coryat: $38,400 49 R/4 W DD: 2/3 FJ: :mrgreen: LT: (Pendleton) Roundup, distemper, Peter the Great (DD), (ice) cores Now *that* was a savvy wager. I remembered Eritrean independence being a little bit later in the '90s, but I was able to swat away that doubt and lock in the correct FJ! response. TIL...

And yeah - Mike probably had no idea he was even going to host the show. Ken had to move on to The Chase and they had a gap of time that needed filling.
The narrative that Richards had no idea he was going to host and was just plucked from obscurity is almost certainly false.

Ditto. I never heard of this guy, literally (OK, sue me, I don't read the credits). When found out what his day job is I sort of expected a stereotypical nerdy behind-the-scenes guy. But he has been a most pleasant surprise. And I don't mind this level of energy/enthusiasm, as long as it doesn't mu...

The score at the time was 18400/15200/5200. A wager of $4,400 would have put him (at least te...

Re: Monday, February 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

It was sooooo painful to watch Karen wave the white flag with her DD3 wager. That timidity potentially cost her the game, as, ceterus paribus, she would have gone into FJ! in second place rather than third. She withheld $2,000 in her wager and was $2,300 behind Phil entering FJ. She ultimately didn...

Re: Monday, February 15, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The more I see of Ken, the more I want him to become the permanent host. Can't say I've heard "dish" as a verb before. That was my only miss. Ditto on Ken. I'm worried about the long period of stunt hosts that starts in three weeks. I fear it will lose viewers over the long haul while masking that ...

Chalk up another "got the novel, went Moscow."

John looked very strong in this game. It will be interesting to see if he keeps this up for a long run or sputters out quickly.

As Kirk noted, I'm shocked "standard deviation" was accepted given that it explicitly did not fit the category.

Talk about your WECIB FJ!'s.

I would comment on Paul not going TDD(-$1) on DD3, but you've heard it all before. He couldn’t catch her on the DD. But his bet of a big round number still left him short of catching her on the last clue. Even if she rang in and missed it he still couldn’t have caught her. He needed to bet at least...
