[quote name=\'Don Howard\' post=\'191024\' date=\'Jul 16 2008, 12:33 PM\']Had you been the victor of this game and others, what else was on your tidbit card to discuss, Matt?[/quote]
My number one story, as I've said on this forum before, was about watching the original daytime version when I was home from school, and memorizing the Final Jeopardy clue so I could quiz my father over dinner.  The coordinators knew that Alex would like to say something nice about Cullen, though, so that won out.

One of the few completely positive things about the whole experience was the fact that my father lived to see me play.
This has been another installment of Matt Ottinger's Masters of the Obvious.
Stay tuned for all the obsessive-compulsive fun of Words Have Meanings.

I remember Matt's appearance on J! well...for the reason was that it provided me with conversation material on my lunch break from jury duty one day.

One of the people I was lunching with was talking about Matt and saying how impressive he was (we were talking about the whole Jeopardy run Ken was on, and you came up). It was a pretty interesting conversation.

I got your IB right here...

I didn't think that the still of Captain Picard could possibly be topped.  Once again, you've proven me wrong.

I watched Matt's episode as well.  I'm sure Matt's still thinking to this day "Man, that Ken is one tough S.O.B. at Jeopardy!"

I think the ratings proved we all though that.....J actually beat WOF during the summer part of his games

As for the other post, Ken and Thom never met up head to head on Grand Slam? I'll have to dig for the roster on that show......I was towed down half the time(just to watch that show)

/hey it wasn't bad for GSN though
//I was playing a drinking game for each time the word "correct" was used :D

Well, today's show was actually the Friday show of that Kids Week from DC, not Wednesday. I guess bump your calendar dates for the 1st KJ show by 2 days with that being said.

/unless they get a wild hair to skip some shows

Don't count on the Friday show being the last one they air. We already know they go by production order, and ISTR that was the week that I learned about rearranging weeks like that.

Per the PDFs on Buzzer: Either GSN miscounted and screwed up their own brilliant idea, or the J-Archive episode numbers are off by a day:

Thom's run starts 8/22/08 (says so in the PDFs, they point him out even)
Ken's run, assuming you go by the J-Archive site...starts the 25th
