Yeah I think that's what the "you're welcome" comment was about.

My husband and I watch whenever we can and I'm so happy to say that even though he is usually right when he answers I am right so much more often and he is supportive but also so jealous but it's so much fun!

I was totally shocked a professional gambler didn't know a teams color scheme.

Tonight was awesome.

I was expecting Brad to pick the DD in Double Jeopardy! in the second game like he has in almost every Double Jeopardy! round in this tournament. WOW. What are the odds?

Yeah, when he turned to Ken, I immediately said to my wife, "You're welcome," knowing that's what he SHOULD say, right before he did.

Sadly, that's the only time that I correctly predicted what he was going to say on tonight's show.

I would really enjoy a long form Final Jeopardy format with these guys. Toss some monumentally difficult shit at them and see how they score.

I had Innaritu and couldn't pull the other. Then Innaritu was even wrong.
