Re: Friday, March 22, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Was this an acutal fifth game of the taping day or is the schedule still off? The opponents had good energy that didn't seem like they had to wait through four previous games and lunch break to play. It must have been. When did the schedule get off? For some reason I was thinking Joshua continuuing...

Re: Matt Lauer Being Considered as Alex's Successor

In an average taping day who do you think makes more money: the contestants or Alex? And in general I'd say Alex succeeds in being amusing. He's no Shecky Greene, by he gets by... I've read somewhere that Alex's yearly salary is in the $10,000,000 range? Divide that by 230 games to get $43,478.26 p...

Re: Thursday, March 21, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Alex must not have enough pull with the writers as I would have lost a side bet about Charlie Allnut showing up in the Oscar category. Steve was not quite a black hat in intensity, but his buzzer frustration was obvious and the look on Alex's face after the winning total was announced did not indica...

Re: Reretaken Down

I received an e-mail from a friend who is away on a trip on Aquidneck Island. The place name was unknown to me, so I used Google to learn about it and then checked the archive to see if there were any hits. From 3/10/99: GEOGRAPHY $600: In 1644 Aquidneck Island in Narragansett Bay was officially ren...

Thank you for posting, Steven. It's sad and tragic news, but I appreciate knowing. I believe I saw 48 on his Facebook page.

If any kind soul can get a screengrab of the $2000 clue in Queens English, I would be eternally grateful- the owner of Telly's is a friend of the family, and she'd be tickled pink to find out that her taverna was on Jeopardy!. http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8103/8572888555_3bf31958b5_m.jpg Fickr see...

Re: Monday, March 18, 2013 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

It looks like I can have a poll choice for only getting the Cline song in Women of Country or knew the $400 and not the $200 clue. That puts Hammer up 2600-400 (no way he outbuzzes me on an old song), so I hope I made up the difference later. There were some strange stumpers like jellyfish and muck ...

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

After the recent discussion of pinball in this thread, I just stumbled a something related on Alex Trebek's Wikpedia page, that in 1975, he guest-starred on The Magnificent Marble Machine. I don't think I had ever heard of this show before, but there is one episode on YouTube, with Florence Henders...

Re: Matt Lauer Being Considered as Alex's Successor

You guys all know it's going to be Seacrest. He does a good job with his current gigs and does not need more on his plate. I'll add Mark L. Walberg to the list. We should have some kind of bracket voting. I have not seen 64 (68) names yet, but there are at least 32 floating around. News, Game Shows...
