    At least I’ve would’ve say this, but…. Go Patriots for Matt.

    I was wondering why Donna got dinged for $4000. I thought it was a $2000 question.

    I was amazed that everyone, even the history student, was stuck on Sun Yat-sen. On the whole, this was a frustrating game for me. I kept on shouting out the answers to the missed DDs and triple-stumpers. I also noticed the “stystolic” mispronunciation when it happened and wondered if it was going to count against Donna.

    But the icing on the cake is the complete failure of either contestant to get what is by far the easiest FJ question I’ve ever seen. How is it that you can find two people on the same episode of a show like this who don’t know that chess is played on an 8×8 board?

    The Im-pasta category was funny to me ’cause a while ago my bf said most words in Italian sound like a pasta name.

    Too bad the DD didn’t work out for Sacha – he tried hard. Matt was a good player, so congrats!

    We had severe thunderstorms here.

    J! interrupted by meteorologists which blocked me from seeing the first part of Jeopardy.

    What I did see was okay. Sacha did what he had to do. Too bad it didn’t work out for him.

    @vj, I did see the ts on Shelley. I knew you were speechless. LOL

    Congrats to Matt. What a runaway game! Fantastic.

      @Jacob, I would actually have been quite surprised if any of them knew it.

      “My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
      Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”

      My favorite moment of this match was the look on Matt’s face after he got Tiny Tim right. LOL! I would love to know what he was thinking. Since you missed that, I will look for a clip.

        @vj, someone uploaded the game to youtube and I just watched it. Saw Matt’s reaction.

        Btw, just realized my zero prediction panned out on the chess clue. No one said anything and it slipped my mind dealing with the storm during Jeopardy.

        • VJ says:

          wow that was fast. I couldn’t find last Tuesday’s game till last night.

          Yep, you were right on zero, much to my shock.

        • Eric S says:

          Sorry Jacob, didn’t mean to slight you (I had to look back: didn’t see it yesterday)! Good call.

        • jacob ska says:

          @Eric, not slighted. Didn’t realize myself until watching youtube video today and it clicked. I think all of us were caught up in shock last night.

    Oh. My. God. HOW? Of course, I didn’t think this gimme could possibly be a FJ, or that anyone could miss it if it was, so I’m 0-2 in that regard.

    • DT says:

      For someone so critical, I noticed on CoD that you wrote how easy this question is, but you never gave your answer.

      • VJ says:

        Well, nobody ever gives the answer outright on the Spoiler Talk thread, DT. Possible wrong answers, yes, but the actual answer, no.

    I’m laughing so hard it hurts. I’m sure Sasha knew it! At least he got yesterday’s math question correct. Of course, 36 is the anti-answer: 64 (single piece) squares less the 6X6 inside squares left out yields the correct response. So close, and yet so far away.
