If it was my one shot on Jeopardy in my life, I'd try to answer as many as I could.  Maybe I could squeeze into second place that way!

I really wonder what the contestants going against him are thinking when they're down $10,000 by the first commercial break (which has happened several times). Well...this is a lost cause.

I played from behind almost my entire first episode, and at the end of both the J! and DJ! rounds, I had exactly half of the leader's score. 

And I can say with complete honesty that, outside of pauses for DD's, not once did I look at the scoreboard during the game. 

Play your heart out.  Play to win.  Even if you can't.  Make yourself proud.

Right. Even if you don't dethrone a reigning champion, no matter how you finish, just MAKING it on the show is no small feat. Something I still hope to accomplish someday.

Same.

It reminds me of Don Beebe from the Bills. They of course were getting blown out by the Cowboys in Super Bowl XXVII*. Leon Lett adds insult to injury by recovering a fumble and taking it to the front porch of the house. That's when Beebe knocked the ball out Lett's hands at about the 3 and forced a touchback.

My point: Don got a lotta praise for still putting up a fight even in a blowout. He later mentioned he was just frustrated and didn't want further humiliation.

Look, the world of trivia is very simple - if someone asks you a question, you answer it. 

Don't try to get any deeper than that.

What if they give you teh answers, then what happens? </light sarcasm>
I guess this is moot given the events of yesterday's session (in which I've missed the 3:30pm Chicago Jeopardy! due to a cancelled flight)

It depends on if they lift the pitch of their voice at the end.
