    I thought Julia lost before the Battle of the Decades with Ken Brad and Roger…..I know I saw her lose to a younger woman but she is back this week….am I losing it or was she brought back because of some “error” in scoring???? Its driving me nuts

      Well if you look at the post with Julia’s Jeopardy Stats, maybe you can see what happened in her last two games (5/1 and 5/2) before the Battle of the Decades. She had a runaway on 5/2 because of an error in scoring but I don’t think the other lady was younger than her, so I don’t really know what game you are thinking of.

        I just thought I remember her losing and my wife thought the same thing….I watch Jeopardy religiously but never even knew blogs like this one existed…and I’ve been online since the early 90’s….just never got that curious I guess….

        Well, she’s had a few close calls.

    I like the name Jeopardy Julia. I don’t like Johnny football. That’s probably because he acts like the love child of Nancy Grace and Ryan Leaf. Some things just must be said.

    Nice coverage. I think the question we all have in our minds is did Roger know the correct response to the F.J. in the first round, and how much it would have mattered? Ultimately, though, it’s all conjecture at this point. What a fun week. I hope that Tom Clark has as much fun next week!
