Re: Thursday, June 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

If Sandy gets garter she leads 21,200/14,000 when she hits the last DD. She could go for the lock without risking the lead.

Re: Thursday, June 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

In Arman’s spot I’d have spent the break deciding how to spend my $2000. I’m facing a two day champ that teaches high school English and the category is American Authors? Then it is about perhaps the best known American author? Look out, Savannah, here comes the towel. But I still would have made a ...

I gave out seven in my D rundle out of 67 CAA.

I saw Ferris once and hated it. I kept hoping someone would kick that smug SOB in the teeth.

Re: Wednesday, June 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Got to the solve after a 10-second mad scramble as my brain would not move off Gagarin. Do NOT understand the (moot) $10,000 wager at all. Doesn't he maximize his payday if the leader misses, without risking 2nd place? The downside is losing about $5K on a double miss, but don't we always assume 2n...

Add me to those who knew exactly who they wanted but couldn’t pull the name. Had part of her first name but that’s about it.

Agree on Danielle’s handwriting. Got a chuckle on Sandy getting the bad Elvis painting after her story.

Thanks for that. I tried signing up for a DM account but I never received the activation code they said they sent. Yes, I did check my spam filter.

Re: J! in the Media

I'm not convinced by the argument proffered by some that the clue constitutes "sexism", but it was certainly a sloppy clue; frankly, a sloppy category overall. The term appears to have been used in one medical paper and not widely caught on. There was no real reason to include it. I agree it was a ...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

After the second day I started using a random number generator for defense in the Bizzaro rundle. Wound up at .530, which makes me feel better about going .660 in my real rundle. I was 0.484 in Bizarro, and 0.638 in real rundle...I did forget a couple of times what we were doing in Bizarro so proba...

Re: Capital One College Bowl

Joe just turned 78 and is definitely showing it. He pops up on TV around here during football season sometimes. Sir Charles is always good for a few laughs.

I wasn’t a fan of Cooper’s asides, but they weren’t nearly as painful to watch as the guy in the box or the girl with the hair on AGT. Ouch!!!

Re: Jeopardy! Interim Host Thread

Savannah says she has a day job so she’s not in the running for the hosting gig. Just saw her on Today (via Twitter) pushing products for Amazon Prime Day. Kind of blows the mind. I figured some of them weren’t really auditioning for a full-time gig, but it is disappointing that she doesn’t even wa...

Re: Tuesday, June 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This game had big payday written all over it, but Bridget seemed to get flustered after that DD miss. Too bad because she seems like she would be a risk-taking champion. With big risk comes the chance of flaming out, of course. Sandy is a board-jumping sort, so we’ll see how that plays out for her....

Re: Capital One College Bowl

Those questions were too easy. My thoughts exactly. Also, I wish there were a rule against phrasing the response in the form of "We're going with..." Agree on both. But they seem to be trying to reach a broader audience than Jeopardy or the old College Bowl. More of a sports show with the rivalries...

Re: Tuesday, June 22, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had a feeling someone might try to make the poem's name into 10 letters. <raises hand> Dammit, it doesn't fit! Knew it had two "b"s so I looked elsewhere. "Borogoves" is too short, as is "albatross". This is the first time I left a response blank in ages. Same here. I just got rid of the c when I...

Re: Capital One College Bowl

Not bad for a first effort. Cooper didn’t really add much and I think he slowed things down with his side comments. Bama won, made the next round and beat Auburn. Nice touch with the alums appearing to provide moral support. Joe Namath is looking old. Funny having Brady on for Michigan with Peyton h...

Re: New old games in the J! Archive

Well, after over a year since my archive.org site was shut down I thought I could return to uploading more games to add to the archive in maybe a bit more cautious way. I've decided to go back to using DM for now, but to let the episodes be unlisted and to only be accessed with a password -- and to...
