This seems to happen seemingly more often than not. A champion goes on an extended run....then finally loses. And the person who beat him loses the next game! Wow.

Soooo...I got a call last week from a number I didn't recognize, so I almost didn't answer but I did anyway.  And I'm glad I did.  It was a contestant coordinator from Jeopardy.  Nothing firm yet, but she did ask about my availability over the next 2-3 months and confirmed all my info.  Knocking on wood!

And I gotta start working on things like literature and modern pop culture.

Time flies......kudos to Amy Schneider and her championship.  I liked the byes, the finals format, etc.  And Sam Buttrell !  Was a tad annoyed with Andrew always hitting the big 'Jeopardy' bids.

The same with Chris afterwards, though I loved his humor.

There needs to be SOME shoutout to DTF.  I think you should where Adami's "Stadler" tie while on the air.  I really do.

Not familiar with that tie, but I could make oblique references to your avatars over the years:  Belichick, Trevor Horn and whoever's body your Muppet avatar is sitting on.   :lol

I'd be happy to loan you the tie. It's worth it.

TBF, the odds of me suiting up are probably lower than the odds of the Atlanta Falcons winning the Super Bowl this season.  I do appreciate the offer.

If you draw a complete blank on Final Jeopardy, steak dinner at your choice of restaurant if you just write "Stadler" in as your answer. ;) :) :) :) :)

A Vlasto Day reference will suffice.
If I can do it, it's idiot proof.

I fear for the day when something happens on the right that is SO nuts that even Stadler says "That's crazy".

I second putting Stadler as an answer.

That way it can be said on live tv that “Stadler is wrong”

Ray's run is over....quite a run he had! The game before he barely won, and so you just wondered when it might actually happen.

New champ, Sy, quite a character! He wagered $5 on a Daily Double clue for "Kid Cuisine"....then missed it to prove his lack of confidence....then said "now you know why I only wagered $5"!   :laugh:

I started out liking Ray but kinda got sick of his constant rocking back and forth. We'll see how long this new guy lasts.

Great news!  I got a call from the casting director today.  I'm slated to be a "local alternate" in early February.  I likely won't play, but I'll come back on their next taping day later in February!  The shows that are taped those days will air in late April/early May.  I'll post the specific date when it gets closer.

Gotta buckle down and get some facts hammered in.

It's been a while, but on the Fbook site, he explained that he had some sort of back or hip problem, and his swaying helped reduce irritation in his legs.  I don't understand why the contestants can't sit down.

My peeve....with him and a growing list, is saying 'Please' for every single clue request.  Once is fine, after that, knock it off! >:(

A typical Jersey contestant might go:  'Give me 'Sports for two hundred....or else!' :lol

On the 13th, categories 4-6 in the 'Jeopardy Round' were:  "You Brought Me Fame & Fortune',  '& Everything That Goes With It', and  'I Thank You All'

I ran across footage of one of the Art Fleming hosted episodes, and I'm pretty sure they were all sitting.

I think it was when I did an in-person audition for Sports Jeopardy that we were told to abbreviate the categories.  The reason?  It saves time and, over the course of 30 clues, it helps to ensure that all of the clues get used.  When I got up to play a mock game, the first thing out of my mouth was, "Can I get '[FULL category name] for [dollar amount],' please."  As soon as it came out of my mouth, I admonished myself in my mind for doing it.

I enjoy when they come up with the clever ties between categories.

I'm a few days behind again, and last night, I watched the episode where the Final J clue was:  "Mimal, sometimes said to be the silhouette of a chef or elf, stands for Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, and these 2 states."  I was completely astounded that none of the three got it correct (although, apparently, some Jeopardy fans on social media found the question somewhat unintelligible.

I get it, but I hate when the contestants abbreviate.   Just me.  I also text in complete sentences. :)
