James is coming back!

Post by Shnoodles »

Hey you Jamespardy guys,

I know everyone has been feeling down ever since James lost to Emma the librarian. But good news - James will be back this November to compete in the tournament of champions. Emma will also be there so we will see if they will face each other again.

Go James!

Go James

James has made it into the finals of the tournament!

James will play against his nemesis Emma - they will play 2 games (Thursday and Friday) and whoever has the highest score in the end will be crowned the best Jeopardy person of the year!

Unexpected James sighting

Post by Nibs »

YOU GUYS!!!

Lee and I went to dinner at Chai Thai tonight and to our surprise, they had on TV the first round of James vs Emma!

We won't say what happens in case the St Louis bears havent bootleg watched it yet.

But it was very funny because Lee was playing along and had a confident guess for almost every question that was wrong! It was sort of incredible how wrong she was and how she had a close-but-not-right answer for so many questions in a row. I've never seen anything like it.

Good thing Lee was not playing against James.

Anysneech, bears rooting for James in tomorrow's matchup!

James rules!

Post by Snuffles »

Nibs we watched it too - exciting! James got off to a fast start but then missed a daily double which never happens - but then he came back and bet it all again and was right thanks to his all-encompassing geographic knowledge. Emma bet all her money on final jeopardy so James will still have to be on his toes for today's game!

In case you noticed how people laughed when Alex said "genre" it was because this video recently made the rounds:

James did it!

Post by Snuffles »

Emma played well in game #2 and was close enough that she could have caught James if he had missed Final Jeopardy - but it was a question about Japan and James is one quarter Japanese so of course he knew the answer!

Lee pointed out how important James' extra padding was from the first game. It is probably why Schlop keeps so much extra padding around - smart bear!

Hopefully James will be back in the future to take on Jeopardy Ken and Jeopardy Brad.

Yay James!

Oh - also Emma talked about how she liked to sing along to lyrics of musicals to calm down during breaks in Jeopardy - and her favorite musical to sing is Natasha, Pierre, Schlop & The Great Comet of 1812. Cool!

Greatest of All Time!

Post by Shnoodles »

Hey you James-afficianados,

Snuffles you called it - James will be back to take on Brad and Ken in a tournament called The Greatest of all Time aka the GOAT!

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/exc ... 42952.html

We all know Ken as the original Jeopardy Guy who won 74 games in a row back in 2003 - but Brad has never lost at Jeopardy and has bested Ken a few times. How will James fare against these trivia powerhouses? We will find out on January 7th which is just 4 days before Lee's b-day. They will play each night in prime time until someone has won 3 games - so it could last 7 nights!

Cool!

Get your GOAT

Post by Shnoodles »

Hey you Trebek guys,

The tournament to be named the GOAT of Jeopardy is starting in just 2 days on January 7th! Bears are excited to see how James will do against 2 of the best - Brad and Ken.

In order to avoid any spoilers I will once again be donning my Sensory Deprivator 5000 and steering clear of all non-Schlop-related sites on the interwebs.

Go James!

Ken is GOAT

Post by Shnoodles »

Hey you buzzer bears,

Well the GOAT tournament has ended and Nibs and I both watched all 4 episodes. James had a chance to catch Ken in the last game but unfortunately he hadn't watched enough Disney movies in preparation and he missed Iago. Overall Ken was just too good to beat and will go down as the Jeopardy GOAT.

Lee would have dominated the last night since there was a whole category about Broadway shows she just saw! Also she knew all about Chad (the country). She would have beat Brad at least!
