Aaron Rodgers has one of the very few occupations where he is paid more than he would be as Jeopardy host.
But you don't need an ice bath after a day of hosting Jeopardy!

Re: 2021 Current Events Study GUIDE. Study GUIDE.

Right-handed pitcher Joe Musgrove threw a no-hitter on April 9 against the Texas Rangers. It is the first no-hitter ever by a Padres pitcher.

I'm not absolutely certain about this, but I believe the San Diego Padres were the last remaining MLB team never to record a no-hitter in franchise history.

Never knew There was an Abilene Kansas.
Never watched a western? Check out Red River on Turner Classic Movies later this month, and you'll get a mini education on Abilene and the Chisholm Trail and see a fine film to boot.

Re: Monday, April 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Rodgers was likable enough, and he handled the FJ dig with the right amount of chagrin. But he lacks the polish and gravitas for consideration as permanent host, however much he campaigns for it. I'm afraid I have to stand with the Cheeseheads in saying, "Aaron, don't quit your day job."

Interesting to hear about Nick Cascone's past as a screen actor, as I had been thinking he looked a lot like Mark Maron:

Now knowing the correct response, it makes complete sense, but that was never a connection I was going to make. I've never read any of Shakespeare's historicals, so I'm not familiar with the opening lines. It's a good idea to study a few of Shakespeare's best-known first lines: "When shall we three...

Re: How Did Katie Do as Host?

Katie looked like she was having fun, which is fine for a guest host and made me root for her. But she never seemed fully at ease in the role. I don't think she's the long-term solution.

For some reason, I thought Carrara was spelled C-A-R-R-E-R-A. Perhaps it was because of Barbara Carrera, the sunglasses, or a combination of the two. So I guessed Alabaster too.

I suggest the World Meteorological Organization consider the Geek alphabet as an alternative for naming storms: AT-AT, BTC, CON, D&D, HTML, J!, L33T, NERV, RPG, SG1, TARDIS, USB, XMEN, and so on.
