Re: The GREATEST OF ALL TIME FJs for the 1/13/20 week

I just barely avoided the boxes of shame by having stayed at Snowmass when I visited Aspen (a LOT cheaper to stay there instead of in Aspen).

Re: Fourth Podium Poll for 1/16/2020 (SPOILERS)

Usually I make fun of TPH for not knowing something, but I'm stunned that the aluminum coin is only polling 56%. What else could it have been?

Personally, enough already with the special tournaments. GOAT was wonderful. Let's bask in its beauty for a while.

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

I've been to enough tapings to know that there's no way to do it live. Way too many things go wrong in a typical taping that take time to resolve.

Re: Tuesday, January 14, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

One of the instances to which mas3cf alluded had Brown University as an answer in the category, "All the Pretty Colors." AT even gave out with an "Ahhh" as he pronounced "pretty colors." Is brown pretty? Might be debatable in real life. But it is definitely pretty in the Jeopardy universe. I certai...

And an interview with Stephanie Hull, who achieved the lowest score ever.

I am breathing a big sigh of relief.

And that comment. Totally uncalled for.

Re: Your prediction for GOAT tonight Jan. 14

It's kind of like the title of World's Fastest Human being given to the winner of the 100 meter dash at every Olympics. It doesn't mean forever, it just means "for now". Brad won the MDM to become Jeopardy "Master", the UTOC to become the Ultimate champion, Battle of the Decades confirmed his posit...

Unfortunately, through human error in post-production, the uncorrected version of the game was broadcast. We regret the error and we will make every effort to ensure this never happens again.
Wow. That's a serious "oops".

Re: Friday, January 10, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

While I think people may refer to "penalty minutes" as "penalties", that's definitely too informal. Isn't Alex Canadian? The box score if you're interested. IIRC, if you get a misconduct penalty, aren't you kicked out of the game? If so, who was left to play in that game?!? Yeah, Alex needs to turn...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 3 (1/9/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Given the ratings, ABC will be very disappointed if Ken wraps it up Tuesday night. I suspect that alietr quietly banned mbclev some time back. Nope, he just drifted away I suppose. Hasn't been on in nearly two years. I can't say I'm unhappy about that. That was more fun than a barrel full of monkeys...

Re: GOAT Tournament Day 2 (1/8/20) Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

History is not my strongest area, but sometimes I get some unexpected help from a pop culture source. The Napoleon/Madison connection instantly came to mind because I am a fan of the Bruce Campbell television series Jack of All Trades , in which Napoleon was played by the incomparable Verne Troyer....
