Re: Hockey Night In Canada Apologizes For Don Cherry's Racist Rant

Did Don simply say that he wishes more immigrants wore poppies? Forgive me, I haven’t seen an exact quote. I don’t find that particularly xenophobic or racist. It’s an old guy wishing the new generation was more appreciative of prior sacrifices. I’m sure many people are supportive of veterans withou...

Re: Oh Bernie...

I totally agree! Bernie is the worst. Jamie is so much more pleasant to watch.

My preference is when Steve Garagiola covers the sports shift.

Re: Newest Jeopardy! Uberchampion

Much to my surprise, channel 4 was airing a Jeopardy repeat at 12:30 this afternoon. It seems like they’ve been mostly airing infomercials at 12:30 for years now. Also much to my surprise, the episode featured Jeopardy James. Typically, I believe the 12:30 Jeopardy (for the decade channel 4 aired th...

Re: Classic Soul 105.1/The Groove

The first the DJ I heard was a women, I remember her talking about the station needing a name. I won the Name The Radio Station contest. Myself, and 80 other people, sent in “The Groove” as our entry. We were all invited down to the Second City in Hockeytown (now known as the City Theater) for a co...

Re: Am I the only one who's tired of Jimmy Fallon's format?

The only late-night host I truly enjoy is James Corden. Fallon amused me for the first few years, but now it’s just boring to me. Grow up and stop playing stupid games already. You’re not a teenager, stop giggling all the time. I’ve never been a Kimmel fan, other than way back on Win Ben Stein’s Mon...

Re: Why is Sanilac part of the Detroit DMA?

My brother has a cottage north of Port Sanilac. I’m not certain what cable service he uses, but he gets Detroit stations and not Flint with that service.

Re: Newest Jeopardy! Uberchampion

At the end of the show, Alex does say something like, “what a way to start the week”. So if it is not tomorrow, it definitely appears to be a Monday. James is at $22000 or $23000, somewhere around there. The guy in the middle is at $11000. The lady on the right is at $26000. Category is something Sh...

Re: Newest Jeopardy! Uberchampion

Based on his average daily winnings, he likely would have passed Ken Jennings cash total with just one more victory. But James will come up short. James’ average daily winnings is mind-blowing. But this also makes me appreciate Jennings too. After all this hype, and James could not even reach the ha...

It is on Reddit, posted 37 days ago.

Although not an entirely accurate account. He will lose by much more than a dollar.

Re: Newest Jeopardy! Uberchampion

It was on the Internet before his 1st episode even aired. Somebody, I think a family member, had a “Chasing Ken” tracker way back when, when only complete and total Jeopardy dork like myself stumbled onto the info. Sony took it down before the first James episode aired.

Re: Newest Jeopardy! Uberchampion

I’ve read a completely unsubstantiated internet rumor that claims he will lose after amassing 32 victories and $2.4M, coming up just shy of Ken Jennings $2.5M. (Although way ahead of Ken in average dollar value per victory, and way behind Ken in total victories of 72.)

He’s recovering from back surgery. He is scheduled to return Monday the 29th.
