Re: Wednesday, November 16, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Ugly FJ Clue.

These games seem a lot easier after the ToC, but I guess they're not.

The betting also wasn't horrible, so that's nice to see too.

Re: Thursday, November 10, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

DoT: I trust you and StevenH on these matters, so could you explain to me (in all seriousness, I am missing something) what precisely made the writing on last night's boards terrible to that extent? I just don't get it.

Re: Thursday, November 10, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

These boards felt like the easiest of the entire TOC to me, almost likely regular game boards (slight bump in difficulty), even got a couple triple stumpers (Foster the People was probably just getting hot when this taped, so that's fine, a little surprised on Chinchilla and Gorilla going for silenc...

Re: Season 28 Coryats Thread (POSSIBLE SPOILERS)

11/9: $10,600. Just not my day, combined with a TOC board. The pop culture categories found my weaker points (Sports - Olympics, Opera and Bond Movies), and I was really bad on categories like the Politicos and Twins that I can usually do well in.

Re: Wednesday, November 9, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

DWS: Agreed. All three players showed well and had their moments. Tom was just masterful, and both Justin and Erin did well. My theory about Erin getting her sea legs on the buzzer seemed to validate itself as she was picking up a ton of the "all three buzzing" answers. I was just sitting here, stup...

Eh, different strokes. Remedial Chaos Theory from Community was probably the best sitcom episodes (non Parks and Recreation division) I have seen in the past couple years.

Re: 2011 Tournament of Champions Thread

First Semi-Final Discussion By and large, I'm in agreement with Steven and Mark, and they follow the show more closely than I do so I'll keep it brief. I'm going to give Erin a better chance than a 0/3 FJ defaulter. I admit I'm a fan and I am rooting for her (college champion), and I think it's fair...

Retroactive TOC QF Coryats, going off of the archive (I watched all of them, but the archive is only updated to the last four games (oh not they're not superhuman wah). With that said, for the 11/8 game...just give me a zero. Wah. 11/2: $17,600 (1/3 on DDs, Yes to FJ) 11/3: $18,200 (1/3 on DDs, loln...

Re: Tuesday, November 8, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Thanks hbomb for explaining how we were supposed to get to Swift. You could have given me a day and I'd never have gotten to that answer. Honestly, this board felt WAY tougher to me than any of the prior four days boards. Beyond the TV category I sat stupefied by most of the DJ round Therefore, I re...

Re: Monday, November 7, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

That hockey clue was tricky. I said four before I backtracked and said five. It was begging for the answer of four even if it wasn't right.

They really needed some more obscure sports in that category though, at least for the ToC. But I'm not complaining.

I negged with Goodall for Fosse. I always get them mixed up. Props to Paul for choosing the right one.
Agreed on both fronts.

I said Goodall, then realized Jane Goodall wasn't dead, and went "uh uh uh uh....er...*beep*"

Re: Monday, November 7, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Seemed like a buzzer battle game. I didn't count the TS, but it seemed like a higher number, but a ton of clues they all knew as well. I expected as much from Erin, she was pretty clearly capable on her college run and she did well again. I think Paul just lost some buzzer mojo. Buddy did extremely ...

Re: Big Bang Theory Poll

Tom: As someone who is much more a Community fan (and I'm lukewarm on BBT): yes. Jim Parsons/Sheldon carries the show. Sure, I was rooting hard for Steve Carell for this last Emmy, but Parsons is in the conversation.

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

There's not much to say Hi Everyone, I am Ryan, and I was also Fishercat on the older board. I had no idea that (and where) the old boardies reconvened until I saw one of the TOCers tweets about a Jeopardy message board and decided to search again. Just know, no Sony hackers can keep me away forever...

Tom's running diary for the last couple ToC games has been a real treat to follow. I just had to follow every ToCer, it's fun stuff!

Re: Pavlov revival

I'm sorry to say that I think the sports pavlov may have died with the old board. I am searching for the files on any hard drives I have and nothing is coming up. I'll let you know if I find anything but I think I just kept that on the board instead of on a file. I wouldn't have a problem creating a...

And you guys thought you could get rid of the resident jester. Bah. Anyway, I was without power for a few days and thought I missed the first couple days of the ToC. I was thrilled to see that yesterday was the first day. Not much to contribute beyond what has already been said, but following the co...
