I just wish I had the glorious handlebar mustache of Frank Spangenberg...
It's nice to finally hear some nice words about me on here. You'd think I cheated my way through my games based off some of the comments. I've been a lurker for a while but got out of watching the show after my run ended. Recently though it's been fun watching Andrew Moore get close and Ben pass me. Looking forward to facing off against them in the ToC!
Great to see you here, Drew, and thanks for acknowledging my post! I hated seeing you lose your eighth game. My wife and I truly thought you were a very nice guy. It was very refreshing to have someone like that as a J! Super champ. I'll be rooting for you in the ToC. And yes, regarding all the comments about you, like "can't believe this guy is now an 8 day champ" and crap like that, I don't really know why, but that kind of talk really makes my blood boil. I always thought "well when you get on Jeopardy!, and go on to win a bunch of games in a row, then, MAYBE you can complain about a champs abilities." I know many like aggressive gameplay, the board hopping, huge DD wagers, etc... But not all have to be like that. You won eight games because you had a wide knowledge base, you didn't wager big on DDs unless you were trailing, such as you did on that infamous "Double N" category. Why wager big on DDs if you're leading by an ok margin? I mean, it's just IMHO, of course..
Anyway, thanks for replying to my post, and take care. We'll be rooting for you in the ToC from Arkansas!
