That said, to a couple of your points:
As someone replied, I wasn't going to jeopardize my lock game at that point, plus my own haziness with the category.I must ask Andrew, though, why he didn't risk more on the Capitals DD? Common boardie knowledge is that categories with a very limited set of answers (6, 8, or 11 depending on what is counted) require a big wager (especially with someone in as much of a lead as you were. I'm guessing you aren't nearly as comfortable with geography as I am?
Watching it back, I can see that. But in person, she was really sharp. We all come across differently on screen.Like, Caitlin seemed like, kinda ditzy, you know? Tee hee.
This.He couldn't have safely wagered much more than $1000, so why risk a win that gives him a very good chance at making the ToC?
You would think that, but that would be giving me far too much credit. I know next to nothing about old movies. Just a bad guess from intuition.I liked how the writers left a trap with Bogart in the detective clue as he played BOTH Philip Marlowe and Sam Spade and clearly our champ either fell for that or had gotten confused between Chandler and Hammett. I know I did in the past and which characters belonged to which author.
Haters gonna hate . . .I am surprised (though I probably shouldn't be) at the amount of vitriol about Andrew on the Sony Facebook page.
I'm glad someone mentioned this. I really wasn't sure where Alex was going with that - all that I had put as a talking point was that I had caught a ball at the HR Derby. When he started in about being a baseball fan, it caught me off guard. Also, I flubbed the year in my story, as the ASG was in Atlanta in 2000. So just a bad segment all around. But I really did catch that ball.Lame interview for him today, however.
The coincidence of this whole snafu is that I was at The Ted watching the Braves lose to the pitiful Mets last night when my episode aired here. And it was 3/5, don't sell us one lousy win short.I hate him because he's a Braves fan, but as my Mets just beat him 3 of the last 4, that tempers the hatred a tad.
You have no idea how much I wish you hated me more . . .Had Mark Richt used better time management at the end of the SEC championship last year, I'd really be hating Andrew.
Practice. They give you several rounds to warm up before taping, so use that as an opportunity to get your timing down. And other than that, pray.You seem to be very fast on the buzzer. My question to you or anyone else who's played the game is, do you have any tips or strategies for effective buzzing?
To all who have posted kind words and congratulations, a very sincere thanks. I hope that all on here some day get the chance to stand on stage. And for those who are not fond of my playing style, thank you for allowing me to play the heel for you (I outed myself as a wrestling fan, remember?). Sometimes it's even more fun to cheer against someone than it is to cheer for them.
