We need a Jeopardy! thread, team.

The tournament of champions is underway and my favorite contestant of recent memory is back.

Colby Burnett won the teacher's tournament and I tell ya, this dude just oozes swagger.

He played in the ToC quarter finals last night and of course he won so we'll see him again in the semis.

He sure did. Even though he couldn't tell a quote was from Eisenhower based on it being said on D-Day.

Did anyone see how that kid won the teen tournament? Not the stupid final answer he gave, but the betting 18,000 on the Daily Double at the end. It was awesome.

I just can't believe that he knew the date referred to the Normandy invasion but couldn't guess Eisenhower.

Faye watches Julie Smith buzz in now and whisper to her mike that, though Alex was doubtless looking for the question Who is Cicero, in point of fact one Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106–43 B.C., was known variously as both Cicero and Tully. Just as Augustus’s less common appellation is Octavian, she points out, indicating the card in the host’s hand. Trebek looks at the card. Faye flies to the Resource Room. The verdict takes only seconds. The stenographer gets the credit and the cash. Out of the emotional red, she hugs Julie on-camera. The mailman fingers his lapels. Julie smiles a really magnificent smile. Alex, genuinely moved, declaims briefly on the spirit of good clean competition he’s proud to have witnessed here today.

Maybe he's a fan of alternate histories that have Montgomery as Supreme Allied Commander.

I just assumed that he assumed (falsely I might add) that he couldn't lose, so he didn't bother to answer.

I'm a Jeopardy man myself. I kind of felt bad for Barrett on Weds bc there was a period there where he was vigorously buzzing in on every answer, but never getting in. Then he got like two softballs in a row wrong and I didn't feel bad for him anymore.
Do you guys listen to the stories? I'll typically skip them or flick around til they're over.
