Re: Wired article: Ken discusses James

Ken is right about the stats from when he was almost 30 years old. For a former champion that will be 45 this year, he still performed well in the All Star Games.

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Central), April 10, 2019

Last year, I got about 20 right. Unfortunately, I blanked on about five of them. :(

Re: Play along for pancreatic cancer research

I managed to donate $50 after two games in the past month and it was worth it.

Re: Play along for pancreatic cancer research

I only managed to come up with 20 correct responses, but at least I like this better than that ice bucket challenge. I have been challenged to do it again by a fellow Wheel alum via Twitter and I am up to the task, so I could be donating about $40 to stop pancreatic cancer.

Re: Alex Trebek Announces Diagnosis of Pancreatic Cancer

Stephen Colbert sent his well wishes last night since Alex appeared on the very last episode of The Colbert Report before succeeding David Letterman as host of The Late Show.

I have Ken, Matt, and Roger, although I should have gone with Monica for my last choice.

Re: Wednesday, February 27, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm devastated that Team Julia has been eliminated as they were one of my favorite teams. They were just unlucky with the clues and with the fact that they were up against some very tough competitors in Team Austin and Team Ken.

Re: Jeopardy All-Star Games

Monica has been perfect in terms of writing the correct response for final, so she should play it. As for Ken and Matt, they are going to have to decide on which of the first two rounds they want to play when the other match comes up on Monday. Judging from the preview I saw for the first match, it ...

Re: Trivia Nationals

I am curious to know the difference between this and the Trivia Championships Of North America. I have been debating on going there every year, but always had other plans or ran into financial problems or sometimes both.

Re: What Determines For Whom You Root on Jeopardy?

That depends on who I root for. I prefer contestants that are humble in winning and losing, which is why Ken and Julia are two of my most favorite champions besides having a long winning streak. I also root for those that are from my home state of Colorado.

Re: TCONA 8

I have been wanting to go there since 2011, but money has always been an issue and I sometimes end up going elsewhere for a vacation. As of now, a friend of mine in Australia and I agreed that if both of our schedules work out, we will be attending there for the first time this year. If not, there i...

Re: Monday, June 18, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I knew Wilbert Awdry created Thomas The Tank Engine, but shouldn't it have been the Railway Series since Awdry created those books? 1946 was the year when the cheeky blue locomotive was introduced. The first book was The Three Railway Engines, which was released in 1945, which was after the end of W...

I knew all the clues to the Charlie Brown category and it pays to be a fan of the Peanuts comic strips. Good thing I studied journalism in college because I knew the correct response on the Daily Double that Phil missed in 9 Letter Words. I instantly knew Eddie Redmayne right off the bat because he ...

Re: What is wrong with Ken Jennings?

I've met him before and he wasn't as snooty as some people say he is. I did remember him asking me if I was the same user on Twitter that tweeted him and he was quite friendly, as well as classy at a book signing in Denver back in 2012. He may be odder than Craig Ferguson and Stephen Colbert combine...

Re: What is wrong with Ken Jennings?

I'm okay with his type of humor on Twitter. Besides, he's not doing this to please everybody because it's his Twitter account, so it's his choice and if you don't like it, don't even bother following him. Even I know his recent joke was towards the president and I still see him as a great man that I...
