    Why won’t we see the leader getting Final right on Fridays?

    Alan the 5x winner. Congratulations Alan.

    A lot of knowledge for a 25-year-old. Smart, smart, smart!

    I’m happy that we finally have a 5-time champion for the 1st time in a long time. Up until Alan, we haven’t had a 5 or more time champion since Lisa Schlitt’s run from Late January to Early February, and now, Alan has finally broken that drought, as well as the 3-timer drought, and Alan, I wanted to thank you for your brains, and the courage and power of you to do this. Congratulations!

    I knew alan was going to win 5 games because it has been at least 5 or six weeks now after Rob Luguori won. I am hoping he will win game 6 next week and perhaps surpass Lisa Schlitt’s total. He is definitely having that playing style of Matt jackson and Seth Wilson. I am very happy. Furthermore, How will he fare against Andrew Pau in the toc, vj?

    • VJ says:

      idk, Lou. The ToC is a whole ‘nother ballgame, as we know. I could be dead wrong, but I just don’t see Alan making it out of the quarter-finals. Seth and Andrew aren’t the only forces he’ll have to deal with– there’s Jason Sterlacci and Pranjal. Right now, my money’s on Jason and Seth making the semi-finals.

        William, VJ, Lou, I know you’re complaining about the guys not making it to the tournament top 15 list, but you gotta calm down now. The people I know that are coming back are Sam, Andrew, Buzzy, Jason, Hunter, Pranjal, Seth, Tim, Lisa, Lilly, Alan and an upcoming teachers champion. P.S. Duck your head, there’s a pie coming at you!

        • William Weyser says:

          I’m calming down right now, and I’m still looking forward to seeing all of those people, as is everybody else.

        • VJ says:

          @Richard, do me a favor and don’t read things into comments that aren’t there. Lou and I weren’t “complaining” about anyone not making it to the top 15.

    Two of those Daily Double reminded me of musicals. Alan’s first one had me singing “Small House of Uncle Thomas” from “The King and I” and Rachel’s brought Judy Garland and Fred Astaire in “Easter Parade” to mind. — oh, I could write a sonnet, about your Easter _o__e_. (I’ll take an N, Pat! )

    50/61 here. The DJ! board got cleared in large part because they saved the video category(Ohio newscasters reading clues about Ohio) for last. If that category had been in the first round, even if the first round was completed, DJ! would have not seen 30 clues
