I cheered when she missed the final question and went into the red.

The most exciting use of 1s and 0s next to internet porn

If you google the name of the current champion, you can find his Youtube channel which has a single video about Legos. According to the mod of the reddit, you are not allowed to post that link. Posting the link counts as sharing personal information and could get you banned sitewide, even though the youtube account is under the guy's actual name.

I didn't get a fair chance to guess final jeopardy because the twitter spoiled it

Tangentially, there were some impressively stupid answers on Wheel last night.

The dream for me would be the other night's Astronomy final (one of those categories where even if I have 80k to my opponents' $5 each, I'd still bet it all and go for a record), but my friend correctly pointed out that with my luck I'd get some sort of obscure sports clue like this instead where I'm completely hosed unless I had a runaway game.

I'm studying and trying to shore up weaknesses like sports, but come on....this was insane even for a sports clue. All I was able to do was assume from the age and "individual sportsman" that it was a golfer. Even the aforementioned friend who can rattle off the most inane details about sports had no idea and he actively follows golf because he's secretly 80 years old posing as 35. Maybe they were hoping for a contestant who regularly reads Forbes?

See, this one to me didn't seem that hard. I'm not a huge golf fan by any stretch, but I knew Phil was around the right age and probably rich. It was an educated guess, but I got it right. That's one of my favorite things about Jeopardy-as knowledgeable as these contestants all are, they all have their blind spots.

i dont follow golf at all and i was able to come up with mickelson as a middle aged golf guy (as part of the five golf guys i know including mcilroy, woods, arnold palmer, and jack nicklaus)

My strategy is that if it is a golf question just answer Tiger Woods and you have a 50/50 shot at getting it.

I was flipping back and forth on whether Mickelson was older than that or if Woods was that old yet and not sure where I would've landed if I had to.

Kinds disappointed the lady didn't come up with it, in addition to "pope", she was playing the same way my mom plays along at home: recognize one word in the clue so you confidently buzz in but then all you've got is just blurting out something vaguely relevant at best.

there are only three golfers you need to know for 95% of situations: nicklaus, palmer, and woods.

What. What even leads you to an answer like Jagr? He wasn't even in the top 100 paid hockey players.

Yeah, I assumed it was Tiger, although admittedly it was probably related to listening to the Podcast about him.

Disappointed that my roommate wasn't around to see the champ put up Mr. Magoo, since she would have gotten a kick out of it.
