    Thanks for that clip, VJ—it brings back good memories (for me, at least).

    “Grrr! I’ll remember that…” Lol! Now, in hindsight, I think Matt was a total arse on that one. Alex was so gentle while taking away his money…!

    • VJ says:

      Yeah, actually it was more Alex’ fault for not giving him a chance to be more specific and it wasn’t like anyone thought he didn’t know the first name, but look at the lead he had. Holy cow!

      Still sad about Seth. I know it’s been said that he made those small bets before, but the chart also shows there were games when he bet big enough to beat a real challenge. And I don’t even like to deal with “if this” or “if that” scenarios but in this one, if he just went all in on that 13th game, he would have jumped over the $300K winnings mark. I would have liked seeing that.

        I see what you mean, VJ, but as it’s also been said, he might’ve thought ‘Economy’ too broad a category, and was hoping Margie was thinking the same thing—but I totally get your being sad about it. And he was a pleasant contestant, too. Oh well.

        That reminds me of a quote you had on CotD a while back, which I liked. “For all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: It might have been”

        • VJ says:

          Yeah, sigh. As I recall, that quote is a favorite of Jacob’s. I think that quote was in “an old category” on CotD because I remember that it was a triple stumper — the $2K clue in American Lit on 11-12-2002

          The quote is from a poem about a poor girl and a judge who were attracted to each other one day. They married in their own station in life and spent the rest of their lives wishing they married each other. LOL. (“Maud Muller”)

          What happened with Seth reminded me more of a craps game I got in once where I had big time beginners luck but didn’t know how to bet.
