Jeopardy GOAT Observations

#1 Post by silverscreenselect » Thu Jan 09, 2020 9:38 am

I'm surprised that two days of the tournament have gone by with no one posting about it, but I had a couple of observations.

1) The double jeopardy questions especially are tough. I wouldn't have fared all that well.

2) I'm wondering if there's something wrong with Brad Rutter. He simply hasn't been in those first two games at all, and it's not just a case of buzzer slowness. He hasn't done well on the daily doubles while the other two have cleaned up.

Yep. I think most of the questions have been brutal and Brad is definitely not up to snuff. Sorta weird.
Well, then

The double Jeopardy questions have been tough, but not exceptionally so.

Brad does seem to be off. I expected him to do much better as he's the only one of the three who competes regularly. Maybe it's the buzzer. I know I'd have problems with it now as I've demonstrated at TCONA.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Yes, a few times. I generally finish in the money but not in first. --Bob

The only time I've been back to L.A. was three years ago. My team of my wife, step-daughter, and myself had the highest per-capita score.

Thursday's DD
I'm surprised that Holhauer missed the DD about garnet. Most football fans know that one of the nicknames of Florida State is the "garnet and gold."

This is getting higher ratings than the NBA Finals and the World Series!

Casa Sprots had a great time with this. Last Wednesday was the perfect evening in -- J! at 6, GOAT J! at 7, and Vikings at 8. I had to play bridge tonight, but SteelersFan texted me the result.

I was so proud of myself last week when I knew a triple stumper because for the most part, all three of them left me in the dust with these more difficult questions.

YAY KEN!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!
