I just want to say I'm perfectly content with my title as is. In one of my early sonypictures posts, I said I'd definitely stay around until my dad aired, I'd probably stay until I got on, and I'd likely stay well afterward. I feel like my title fits that idea.

My wife just finished watching the series Edward the King, a 13-hour biography of Edward VII, of which approximately 6 hours is occupied by the recitation of the titles of the likes of Edward, Queen Victoria, and Kaiser Wilhelm II. In that spirit, I would like the title "Jeopardy Champion, Loyal Jeopardista, 2006 ToC Finalist, Superchampion Nemesis, Defender of Humanity, and Tax Attorney".

Also, I demand that these be hereditary titles.

You sure those last two titles don't contradict each other?

"Jeopardy Champion" for me, please. And make sure mine isn't hereditary; my kid can win his own damn game of Jeopardy! in 20 years or so.

When my reign as JBoarder of the Month is over you may note me as:
- Founder of the Royal House of JBoarder of the Month, or
- JBoarder of the Month emeritus, or
- Jeopardy! contestant. (I showed up and showed on the show that showed on 10/27/2008. I showed them!)

Thank you kindly.

I move that to Rex's titles shall be appended "Lord High Everything Else."

Fun! You can change mine, I guess. Jeopardy Roadkill. Or Contestant, same difference. :)

Like him, only Three-Time.

I also like this idea - Jeopardy TOC'er would look nice next to my name, but I'd prefer 2010-B College Champion. Maybe we can hyphenate it like a hip woman of today.

How about "Lucky to be Here"?

We don't need no stinking titles...

...but if you're handing them out, my bona fides are in my signature. ;)

I thought about "Flash in the Pan", but I think "Jeopardy Champion" would be nice. Thank you.

Swimming in the Jeopardy pool for the third time; fingers just beginning to pucker and a bit of water in one ear. Most recent audition on May 20, 2011, in DC.

This thread serves to remind me that I forgot to celebrate my Jeopardy anniversary on Monday. I became a Jeopardy Champion 22 years ago. If you missed it, maybe your local TV station preempted my episode for breaking news about the San Francisco earthquake, just as Game 3 of the World Series was about to start at Candlestick Park. The Oakland A's eventually won every game and retired as undefeated champions. Unfortunately, I did not. But I still have hopes of being in the J! Archive some day.

I would like something that recognizes the enormous luck factor involved.

Best guesser works best for me.
