No, it didn't spoil how Joon does- it spoiled how someone else does. The picture's gone now anyway, so it's all good.

Re: Tuesday, September 27, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

Tom, I actually thought of Spenser and Fairie Queene when trying to consider if there were any possibilities beyond Chaucer. I discarded the idea quickly as too obscure for that clue, with no mention of Fairie or any other work.

Um we mentioned the video, but didn't name names because it's a SPOILER, dude. Delete that, will ya?

Re: Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Game Recap & Disc(SPOILERS

I believe Sergio explained later at the bar that he overthought the Boston clue. Boston seemed too obvious, so he chose something else. And yes, there are a couple games spoiled in the weekly video on the Jeopardy This Week page. That happens all the time, unfortunately. It's why I never watch them ...

Well, you were present when I had the best French Dip of my life. So that's pretty special. I still owe you a drink at the bar. Next time I'm in NYC, I'll get you drunk, Ren Faire style.

Re: Wednesday, September 28, 2011 Game Recap & Disc(SPOILERS

I had the same problem, could only remember the questions I got wrong, and none of the right ones. But I am so excited to watch Serge play today! and Libby and Matt, of course. Knowing the players makes it way better. But Sergio was admittedly my favorite person up there for today's game. :)

Re: Tuesday, September 27, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

I went on the Jeopardy! Facebook page the other day and behold- all the stupid complaints that one-shot posters used to start threads for, are now to be found there. It was funny to read that stuff for a few minutes, but it made me realize how great it was to have that gone. I got FJ instantly the s...

Re: Tuesday, September 27, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

This could be my bias talking, but I thought the Fast Food category was really dumb. Just worthless sort of trivia, and I generally love pop culture and other lighter forms of trivia. But yeah, menus? I didn't even care when none of us knew Arby's. Meh, whatever. The most notable part where Sergio t...

Re: Tuesday, September 27, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS)

I heard the extra syllable in "dirigible" as it happened, but once they initially missed it, I kinda hoped they would continue to not notice it. It's funny that even though Joe was technically my opponent, I was cheering him on as well. I really wanted him to get that DD for "husk." Watching the sho...

The buzzer was not my friend that day. Matt was great on it in rehearsal, so I was a little worried about that. Nothing sucks more than not being able to ring in, like, ever. :)

I shook my Magic 8-Ball and the answer came up: "Outlook not so good." (no, they aren't doing them anymore, at least for regular games.)

Re: Monday, September 26, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

This game killed me to jsut sit and watch in the audience because I love the categories. Movies, TV, CAT scans, opera, all up my alley. I don't think the contestants today were opera fans. The "Pinkerton" clue is not Opera 101, I will say in their defense. If they had mentioned it being Asian, or ab...

Re: Friday, September 23, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

I’ve long dreamed about becoming a Jeopardy champion, even a one-time champ, but that was not to be. All in all, though, I think I played well, had a great time, and ended being able to hold my head up high. And that works for me. Thanks for sharing your story, Jessica. I'll probably do the same ev...

Re: 2010-11 Tournament of Champions Standings (spoilers)

Best of luck to all the competitors, though I will have a special rooting spot saved for Tom K. My son Gregory was born on Tuesday. So I would have missed this TOC either way. But I have a very soft, cuddly consolation prize. Congratulations, Megan, on your little boy! Hope you got your peepee-teep...

Re: Thursday, September 22, 2011 Game Recap & Disc (SPOILERS

Anybody else think the bottom clue in Who did she portray was way overvalued? I had never heard of the actress or the movie. but all I needed to hear was Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah 1492. A female role in a movie set in 1492. A fairly limited set of possible people and was pretty sure it wasn't M...

I don't know, I think that's something worth starting a new thread for, for Jessica's story and the future ones. I'd have liked to read everyone's stories and not scattered paragraphs in various threads. It's kind of like how we have the Introductions thread, all that info contained to one area for ...

Re: Friday, September 23, 2011 Game Recap & Discussion(SPOIL

Watching this game was a little odd, because I knew the outcome ahead of time, having been at the next taping day. Amit and Jessica are both great players, and I think Justin got off easy in a couple games this week, to be honest, with players making bad wagers. Amit's a super nice guy, but it would...
