    Today’s game was a breath of fresh air. Congrats Kristin!

    After the wreckage that was yesterday’s er…J! game, wasn’t it? — I recall 2 very bad games this year: 1/22/15 and 1/26/15. Referring to the former, someone on this board called it “the worst game in the history of J!”, and in the latter, Alex remarked “Low scores today.” Having said that, I can’t get anywhere near comparing these 2 games to yesterday’s — a catastrophe of Homeric proportion.

    Phew! I thought that there would be a Kristin in the lead today, but it wasn’t as relaxing as yesterday!

      Congratulations, Kristin! You were able to do something that a lot of players were unable to do and that is win 3 games and over $50,000, and I bet 6-timer Justin Sausville is going to be really happy about this. She gets the 11th spot in my 5th version of the TOC. The other 10 players are Teen Champ Jeff Xie, Kids Week highest scorer Zane Ice(I gave Zane an additional $25,000 and added that to his $29,203) 3-time champs Bill Cossen, Alexander Persaud and Ryan Alley, 4-time champs Catherine Hardee and Elliot Yates, 5-time champs Vaughn Winchell and John Schultz and Teachers champ aka The 1st woman ever to win the Teachers Tournament Jennifer Giles.

        Dude, William! Kids and teens these days are not able to compete in the ToC anymore!

        • William Weyser says:

          Leena, I know that! It’s my version of the TOC and my decision. We went through this over 2 months ago. Do you remember that?

        • Leena says:

          William, I just started Fikkle Fame one month ago.

        • Leena says:

          And now that I know about your version of it, wouldn’t it be incredible if Zane Ice actually won $54,203?

    • john blahuta says:

      don’t worry, she will win monday as well, so that her qualification for the ToC is ensured.


      • Leena says:

        Just a random fact. Every time I send a new comment, another one pops in! By the way, Kristin will go on to win at least five games. Who couldn’t know with Justin, a six-timer, helping her prepare. And yes, I will have an awesome weekend, waiting for Monday to see if I was right on “the run” assumption.

        • john blahuta says:

          i don’t know about five, but with 4 wins and about 70K she would surely qualify the way things have been going so far. she would actually be pretty high on the ToC list.
          after that, idk. i would not bet on a 5th win.

          and i am serious with “have a great weekend!” i am always “signing off” on fridays that way.
          there may be differences in opinons etc. but that doesn’t mean that somebody should have a bad weekend. so enjoy, you and everybody else in our ff – j community!!

        • Leena says:

          I was serious about the weekend. It’s pretty good so far. Speaking of far, I might have gone a bit too far on five, so probably AT LEAST four. I really wanted to know if a commenter did it for fun, or for real and I’m glad that i found out at least that thingy-majigabober 4 1 purrsun.

        You know, if you think they were rigging games for me, wouldn’t they have made sure to put me in the game with the Springsteen Final instead of me sitting in the audience for it?
