Seinfeld on Jeopardy!

Anybody catch Jeopardy today? They had a category devoted to Seinfeld with Jerry giving the clues, and the whole "Jeopardy" round had a Seinfeld theme with categories such as "The Contest" and "No Soup for you". It was an historic show as Ken Jennings finally lost after 70-some odd shows. Personally, I think he threw it. I think he just said "Allright, I had a good run". He announced that he quit his job during the interview, and tanked the "Final Jeopardy" question. Did you see his face? Does anybody else care?

Ah yes, Jeopardy. Next to Seinfeld, my favorite current television show. Living in California, or anywhere is you’re prepared to travel, you can go to LA and do an audition/test for the show. Then, if you agree to be available on short notice, you might get a call if they need to fill a spot now and then. I did this several months ago, nailed the test like a coffin builder, and set ready to off like a dirty shirt when I “got the call” – which has yet to come. Maybe they didn’t like my “stage presence”. Anyway, I was dearly hoping to get a shot at Mr. Jennings, myself. Well, maybe another time. If I ever get the call, I hope any Seinfeld questions are more numerous and as easy as the one’s last night. Oy. BTW, the answer “What is a sweater” should have been disallowed or Mr. Jennings should have been asked to give the more specific question “What is a cashmere sweater?” Smile Of course it’s cashmere.

One can’t help but wonder what happened to Jennings last night. Maybe he missed or was denied his usual pre-briefing! Wink Last night was the end of the sweeps period in television….. Where he was less than his usual stellar was on the Double Jeopardy questions, which he had absolutely OWNED. Never seen anyone better at that. Then, assuming that there was never anything “fishy” with the whole run, I think he got caught up in a common mistake. Many of the correct responses can be deduced based on other clues in the given answer – something he had been doing with uncanny ease. The Final Jeopardy question (answer) asked about “seasonal” employment. I think he honed in on the “seasonal” locked himself into the current Holiday Season and couldn’t mentally escape – thus the seemingly reasonable “Fed-Ex” response. It was my instantaneous response, too, but then the four months part struck me and I immediately knew it was H. & R. Block. It is very easy to sit in one’s chair and think “how easy” but, be assured, that when your standing in front of people with the clicker in your hand and the music is playing (yes, you can hear it), your mind is not as relaxed as it is in your easy chair.

The King is dead. Long live the Queen (or not).

Don't have any faith in game shows, sports, or anything else competitive where huge, corporate money is involved. Where there is money, there is always organized republican greed, crime, corruption and coverup. 2.5 million? Chump-change, compared to what the sponsors made off him.

FDR, I knew whatcha meant! Smile If I ever do get the "Jean-Paul call" I will do my best to earn some dough. And, I will let the folks here know, but only if I don't go one and out! THAT would be a public humiliation! Smile
