Re: Learned League 86 - Aug/Sep 2020

From this lousy season I had, I'm OK, with my TCA, but the bright side is a BWA nominee...but possibly two nominations for BWA.

I can only say possibly two as I'm not sure I actually submitted the attempt on one of the nominated BWAs, so it's possible that nomination belongs to someone else.

Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

They didn’t seem to use anyone’s questionnaire last year.

I wouldn’t take them using it or not using it as anything.

There’s always the possibility something caught their attention and that’s what they’re going with.
