And Deadspin has spoiled today's game for anyone who reads their site or follows them on Twitter. Bunch of Jerks.

Re: Think Different 181...you could be a winner

I should get bonus points for being an honest man.

How did only 4 go for Ebbets Field? Were you like me and thought that everyone else would go for it?

Re: Think Different 181...you could be a winner

I MUST BE HONORABLE

I'm pretty sure I thought the Expos played at Exhibition Stadium, so you should mark me wrong for that one.

I was 90% sure the Phillies played at the Baker Bowl but not enough to go for it. Welp.

Re: Monday, March 10, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That was one of the five hardest opening Jeopardy boards I have ever seen. What makes that unfortunate is that I was playing the game. Long time first time thanks for watching. Hey I'm @JakeMHS on Twitter. Sorry for trashing you there, hope you didn't take it personal. You played a great game again...

Re: Monday, March 10, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

That first round was absolutely brutal for me and the bouncing didn't help. I did a bit better on DJ but it was a tough board.

FJ was a stand (well, sit) and stare for me. No clue - I just don't know enough about musical theater.

What's worse, missing FJ entirely or going in with $200?

Instagot "dude," whiffed on everything else. I went with Belgium and the Netherlands on that one question like so many others. Surprised more people didn't get Kipling.

Re: Think Different 181...you could be a winner

I have never played a reverse sheep game before, so I expect to crash and burn spectacularly. Just wondering - what's a reverse sheep game? Or don't I want to know? That's what I would call this. Every other sheep game I've played asks you to pick the most popular answer. The questions are also mor...

That was brutal. I would last about 3 seconds in this tournament. I guessed Jefferson for the FJ, was I alone?

Wagering gurus help me out, did Eddie wager foolishly?

Re: Haters gonna hate, I suppose, but...

If the person you're talking to starts rambling about Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson or starts complaining about "the race card," it's a very handy hint that they're not worth listening to on this topic.

From a post on TWOP: My station is now promoting Jeopardy by showing a ragged tear across the screen which then shows a picture of Arthur with a voiceover saying "He's Back!" and then villain music.The show is really loving the publicity. ************ I would love to see that if anyone around here ...

Re: Haters gonna hate, I suppose, but...

This is going to take us down a long, dark path that may get the thread closed, but race can color impressions and dialogue beyond the obvious use of racial slurs.

What was supposed to lead to Yankee Stadium on Photos for $400? Lots of teams had a "3" back then, didn't they? And I see no other visual clues of any kind in the clue. Babe Ruth? You mean the guy whose back was to the camera, and who was wearing a number literally hundreds of other players have wo...

I suspect I've met and dealt with far, far more people from this board in the real world than you have. They've all been very nice, and I'd like to think I've been nice to them, too. Austin Powers is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life. I appreciated...

Re: Thursday, February 27, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

If Arthur (and other players) continue to play the board from bottom to top, would TPTB start placing DDs in the top two rows to try to preserve some drama in the games, and would this be perceived to be unfair? Preeeeeetty sure this would violate the federal law against rigging game shows. How's t...
