Tournament of Champions: Fall 2015 Version

I can't say I've watched much of it yet.
For shame since it is already in its 2nd week but I did see Alex do well. I remember him. And Matt Johnson is the one to beat. He is in the semis this week.

The guy who lives in his parents apartment in NYC is also in the semis. That guy. Whatta life!!

I plan to watch the next 4 nights to see about the ending of. . . . T. . . o. . .  C. . . Fall 2015.

Good story, bro.

Some things one my mind- re: JEOPARDY!

There is so much great TV out there being called the Golden Age of TV (teeeeveeee) in some circles. But through it all, I still have to say that Jeopardy! really steps up to the plate and I'm always happy to watch it. None of that gross, sad, violent drama that some shows revel in...just a friendly competition.
I have to say that I think Jeopardy has stepped up to the plate and shall I say it, - we are now in 'A Golden Age of Jeopardy'.  Too many reasons to get into here and I think a super long post/thesis about it would be boring and frankly, who has the time, too many Jeopardy episodes to catch up on! I do have other things to do.  Sort of.

And with this, dear reader, (aka "Jess"), I will post some lists and some posts. I'm inspired.  See me at the list app!

Jeopardy has gone viral: This show might have a following!

So, the correct final Jeopardy answer for, "What flower is a disparaging term for Lefty Liberals?" (sic) was Bleeding Heart. But this NPR producer wrote Pansy.
She got some chuckles in the studio and then it went viral.

I am laughing that she is with NPR of all places. This makes it ok that she used that term.
In my opinion.
At first when I watched the video I definitely thought she was an uptight righty.
See people!
Don't judge a person by their final Jeopardy answers!

What is it like to go viral on Jeopardy?!

Last week's Jeopardy

After Matt Jackson's reign for a few weeks, I though Josh Silverman was going to kill it-- he did but in a normal way. Not in a 'I am the smartest person alive!' way. Though, entertaining. And now that the Gerogia Dean is gone (she was not that much fun but still solid), we're just going through contestants like water.

This is boring. But I can do blogspot still. Wheeeee! I'm a prolific blogger as you can tell.

Are you not sure what to think?

There surely has been a rush of posts lately. Two in one year!
So I just saw this commercial for IBM with Ken Jennings and I thought Yay! And that guy! Go him!


I also wanted to record that my children are now Jeopardy fans. We've been watching nightly and they ask for it. Sure they get to stay up late and that is probably the main reason for their interest. But a few times my daughter has told me I should definitely get on the show so it's a nice ego boost for Mom too! I'll take what I can get!

We've been watching so much that I wrote a list about it on the new List App.

Reasons I love watching Jeopardy with my kids. 

  1. I'm the smartest person alive!
  2. The happiness each time my 7 year old gets a correct answer. 
  3. "I knew it, I knew it, I knew it!"
  4. My 4 year old pretty much doesn't get the show but earlier today he gave me an exact quote from a contestant interview. "Happy Birthday, You're Fired!"
  5. "Mom, you should go on this show!" (Oh, dear, I have tried) 
  6. Math: They love "watching the numbers go up."
  7. Everyone under the age of 8 gets into their PJs sooo quickly before 7 pm.

Oh really?

Yes! A new post.

Matt Jackson is Killing It!
(I have yet to actually watch him play but I have read two articles about him so there is that.)

Matt Jackson Jeopardy Streak

Alex's brilliant (and completely made up) intro:
"Darlene from Akron, Ohio, I hear you have an unusual collection of old keys"

Jeopardy! in the news

Obviously, Jeopardy! is in the news ALL the time with this or that about Alex or about the studio or about Alex's mustache or about winners or about losers. 

This one is 

Well, I guess that is no longer true since by showing you this article I did tell you. 

So there's that.
