Re: Wednesday, February 7, 2001 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Wayne was the best player other than being too conservative on wagers and especially when taking into account the charity guarantees. The FJ! clue is a 2001 and 2020 solve as the distinction was memorable news when it happened. Wayne got to play again: http://www.j-archive.com/showgame.php?game_id=3...

I remember this game thanks to you adding Alex’s comments about the women having fun.

Minor nitpick...looks like you kicked Al out of the union on DD3.

Thanks for getting this in, what tournament are you tackling next after you finish this one?
DD3 fixed, thanks. 1992 Seniors is next.

Re: Reretaken Down

Sorry to see your double pet loss, TPH. May good memories remind you of fun times with Chase & Luna. The tough hits in 2020 keep on coming. Here's to a happier post at a later time to share about a new pet.

Re: Monday, February 5, 2001 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did they edit out discussion of the players’ charities? It looked like there was an awkward cut during Lane’s interview and I don’t recall hearing it anywhere else, other than AT’s mention of Lane’s charity during FJ. I noticed that too. A search of the CC file confirms we didn't miss anything. It ...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

I have a question regarding the 4th quarterfinal of the 1994 seniors tournament. (I only found this out because I actually looked on the archive earlier.) One of the players was from New Rochelle NY, and he was an actor, his name is Bob Mcgrath. Does anyone happen to know if it's the same Bob Mcgra...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Now that all the Seniors 1991 QFs are in, I notice that the QF1 non-winners don't have "$1,000 if eliminated" under their final scores for some reason. Also, Kay Paul's player profile says she's a quarter-finalist despite her being WC5. (And if/while that's being fixed, I feel like it's also worth ...

Re: Monday, February 5, 2001 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Only one clue not seen so that alone tells you it was one of the better celeb games.

Funny that the guys had the same wrong guess for the FJ! clue while 1620 would be enough for many to solve it.

Re: Monday, October 26, 1992 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

"In Jeopardy!'s eighth season, 1992, we aired the first...." Close, Alex's writers. Oh, so very close. But this episode, at least according to the database, is October...firmly in season 9. Unless, perhaps, they decided to air a week of repeats about 6-7 weeks into the season, and the shows origina...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Opus...I had the same guess on FJ. In a QF match with that category I am betting zero and hoping my pre-FJ score holds up. Did Alex mention the fifth WC in QF4? Or in QF5 that you will see tomorrow? After Mary was announced as the semifinal winner Alex then explained about the no-winner QF game in ...
