Please stop posting your beliefs as fact.
But if it was on Reddit, it has to be true, right?

Totally surprised they accepted "colors" without BMS'ing it.

4/8: Didn't see a TOM in this one at all.
You seriously didn't think the word "finch", when used in a question about American authors, might have been placed there to tickle a response?

Re: Season 36 Pre-Emptions

Went to catch up on Teachers Tournament, only to find Tuesday's (second) semifinal pre-empted by live protest coverage on the DC affiliate. Even though I also get the Baltimore affiliate here, I never think to record it because XFinity only offers the Baltimore affiliate in, unbelievably, SD.

Re: Season 36/GOAT Thoughts

One thing that stands out to me about this season is the extraordinary number of female champions and superchampions. There have been plenty in the past for sure, but this year seemed to be the year of the women. Jennifer Quail, Karen Farrell, V-V-V, Mackenzie Jones, even Sarah Jett Rayburn and a fe...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Abby Wombach, Megan Rapinoe, Hope Solo = Women's soccer. Mark's right, they all are top-box famous. We've won the last two World Cups, and have placed top 3 every year since it's started in 1991. Also had 5 consecutive Olympic medals (4 gold, 1 silver) until we got knocked out in 2016 in fifth plac...

Judges .. "Sleeve" for Shoe?: "Wearable term for the box from which cards are dealt for blackjack in a casino"? I'm guessing no, as I'm surprised that I'm not finding much on Google for the term at all .. yet both myself and my g/f, who have spent our fair share of time in the casino (usually at po...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

You're the one over-emphasizing the word "national". Again, this is suggesting that literally everything "national" absolutely positively HAS to be in DC. Seriously, what other "complex"es of "National Museums" are there in the US? Sure, there are "National Museums of xxxxx" all over the place, lik...

2020 Ken talks briefly about the match before it begins. What did he say? I (and my recorder) missed the start of the show. On YT I turned it up with a jeopardy 2020 search. Great, I'll never unsee the people in the comments saying Ken and James lost on purpose. Don't forget that James threw the GO...

They just had the college tournament so I doubt they want to rerun that so soon. So who knows what will happen.
I just hope they don't cave to the social media masses and start airing a James-a-thon.

This is also the same group that largely insists that James "threw" the GOAT tournament ... insist that he threw his 33rd game to Emma Boetcher because ... his "little girl wanted Daddy home".

On the Jeopardy FB page there was an article about the first match. Some commented admonishing Alex for not maintaining social distancing and wondered if there were actual people in attendance.

Thanks for putting this together. My first time on the podium despite completely missing the HOF requirement for the baseball players.

Before today, I would have sworn "Mariana Trench" was wrong. In fact, I was waiting for them to reverse it after the second break. I've never heard it referred to as anything but the "Marianas Trench". Learn something new every day, huh.

New York was the largest state by population in the nation for the majority of this country's existence.
