I was surprised so many people (47%) got Crossroads. I'd never even heard of that movie and I was actually watching movies in the mid-80s! :D

Re: Long-standing Jeopardy Traditions That We haven't seen in a long time

I miss the players walking out during the introductions. Speaking as one who slipped and nearly fell "entering the studio" for his first game, I don't miss the walk-ons at all.

Three tourneys in old values where the wildcard went high: 1988 TOC: 13800 13800 10800 10400 Out - 8000 Having barely won a quarterfinal game (with a total of 13,801) over one of the 13,800s and the 10,800, let me say for the record that the 1988 TOC field was no joke.

Kind of weird that as of this moment (11:15 a.m. PST), the J! official site is already spoiling the results of today's game. They don't do that usually, I don't believe.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Medal ceremony

Congratulations to the inimitable Schliemann, whom I figured would walk away with another championship, and did.

And I'll add mine to the chorus of thanks already expressed to rjaguar3 and the crew of writers and scorers who gifted us with yet another fun summer. You all rock!
