Re: 2020 Jeopardy North American Audition Tour

Against all odds... Zooming on Wednesday! Congrats and good luck! Not sure if this has been covered here yet, but it seems that Friday has been the designated day recently for sending out invitations/other correspondence. That’s what happened for both of my recent 2nd test/audition invites, folks o...

Re: How Did Mayim Bialik Do as Host?

6.5 from me - Found her a bit too perky and self-promoting at times... not my cup of tea I guess. The thing with Bialik is if she is in serious contention for the full time role, she needs to develop into a quiz show host. She’s a solid clue reader, but I do not feel that she grasped the "competitio...

Re: Friday, May 21, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Best I could muster was J.F. Cooper for FJ. :( At least I went 6/6 on DDs to close the week. The tribute for Brayden is at the end of the J! round so slow down a little on the accelerator for those that speed through their recording. Great tribute. Truly wish he could have competed again. All those ...

Re: The 2021 Tournament of Champions Is Happening This Month

QF2: Karen with 8 wins looks like she is in a good position against the college champ and a 3xer who only got in due to unfortunate circumstances. I see it differently as Karen is the most likely of the three 8xers to get bounced early. Nibir got better as he went along his tournament and Steve can...

Zipped around the Eastern Hemisphere and somehow hit the right name at the 29 second mark. I think my scribble of "Netanyahu" is good enough. *Phew*

Congrats to Jon, would like to see how he handles a DD hunter.

Knew FJ cold from both 1993 and the population factoid. Hopefully that breaks me out of my FJ slump over the past two weeks. Congrats to Michael on winning one for New England. I wondered why his FJ wagers ended with 27, but I guess we'll never know. Aaron disclosed this in one of the Reddit game th...

Re: OBIT: Brayden Smith

I enjoyed Brayden's run perhaps more than most as a fellow 20-something and baseball card/book collector (not to mention his skill as champion and being a person of the highest quality).. One of my favorites, no doubt. Absolutely heartbroken to hear this news. I'm glad he got to have the J! experien...

I like this FJ clue.. lots of different parts here. Went from Greco-Roman God to Nuit, then checked my work with Sun King. (Point B to C to A.)

The Cape Cod TS hurt for this New Englander, but I'll gladly scoop up that miss from home. Congrats to Nicole for the sole solve and lock win.
