Re: Friday, June 4, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

17th Century + giants = Don Quixote to me, and never thought of changing, though the water part did confuse me. I disagree with Mark's assessment and believe that clue was too tough as written. A mention of England or reference to it being a philosophical work would have been nice to take me away f...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

I picked this item up directly from an online story from a reputable source of sporting news . Next time, rather than condensing the salient points of the story for you, I will simply post the link and you may spend your own time reading the article. Pretty weird that this reputable source still ha...

Re: 2021 Current Events Discussion Thread

Do you mean "anonymous" sources? Where do we get facts but from sources? Example, for most of the day on ESPN the headline was “Sources say Coach K stepping down after next season” in other words, still rumor. Nobody knew who the source was or their connection. It wasn’t until late in the day that ...

As a result of a second positive drug test, Medina Spirit has been disqualified and stripped of its win in this year's Kentucky Derby, and Mandaloun has been named the new winner. No, as of now, this has not happened. Will it happen soon? Probably. But as of now Medina Spirit is still the winner of...

Re: Reretaken Down

Let me preface this by saying I truly have no desire to debate or discuss this sore subject, but I will reply just this once. Feel free to rebut. I have spent a lot of my life in the expanded Star Wars universe, and the truth is this: Since Disney's purchase of the franchise in 2012, so much lore h...

Re: Tuesday, June 1, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Nothing to do with today's game, but a correction came in today, so I'll put it here to get the right eyeballs on it since the game predates the board. From the 4/4/11 game AYE, "PAD" $600: Princess Amidala, to her friends Erratum: Padme Amidala was a queen in "The Phantom Menace" and a senator in ...

Re: Monday, May 31, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Kevin goes DD hunting immediately in DJ, quickly hits one in the 2nd row, and wagers $2k of a possible $7.2k? Ugh. The other two DD wagers were the same. But then all three wager well in FJ. Huge fan of BBT and Mayim did not disappoint today. Not really sure why or that it matters, but thought her c...

In 2020 Osaka was the highest paid female athle...

Re: Friday, May 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

When Jennifer found DD2 she led Sam $10.4k to $6.6k, through 34 clues she had outplayed him. No real reason to think she wouldn't be able to at least hold her own for the rest of the game, especially after the start she got off to in DJ. If she goes TDD she then leads $20.8k to $6.6k, a $14.2k diffe...

Re: Friday, May 28, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Very frustrating how flawed her logic was. After that DD she should have had a $14200 lead with 24 clues and a DD left. At that point she just has to maintain, (which she was doing so far that game) answer FJ correctly, and take home $250k. Sure is easy to shoulda woulda when you know how easy the ...

Re: Wednesday, May 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I would like to see some analysis of Jason's last DD wager. My intuition, without looking at the numbers, was that a wager that big at that point in the game had way more potential downside than potential upside. Lead of $2600 with $4800 left to be played. A wager of $2201 mathematically locks it o...

I'm still disappointed that Tom Watson couldn't par that 18th hole in 2009.
No kidding, I actually tweaked my back watching that. Would have been the second greatest sports win ever behind only the Miracle on Ice.

In my experience, Poe's lifespan(1809-1849) comes up in trivia far more than one would think. Right up there with Joan of Arc and King George III.

Ryan's comment was consistent with anybody who is a fierce competitor actually trying to win the game unlike so many contestants we see during regular game play. If you have an issue with it, perhaps being on the show isn't for you. Of course Sarah should have gone TDD late in the game, a miss wager...

I think the best way to rule out Jerusalem is to recognize Jeopardy isn’t going to ask a contestant to choose between that and Beirut as far as westernmost. Therefore neither can be correct.

Given that he grew up in a religious home and studied theology his bet seems fine. If FJ was “Golf”, what would the category’s namesake bet if he was in Jeff’s spot? Golf would make the wager that shows the highest winning chances. Against a standard player $5201, against certain player types such ...

Was there really no other way to tease out an answer of Brandy without using a 50 year old song that's basically been forgotten?
Isn’t it sweet when the younger generation believes things like this about good songs from the past that people still listen to?
