  1. Laura Ingalls Wilder was born in 1867, so…nope.

  2. Well…finally do we now witness a normal game with substantial wild card bets that I was looking for. If only the other teachers had the same exuberance betting as the way these three performed.

    Do you guys do the “First in on Buzzer” recap for all the shows or get it from somewhere? I’ve seen it on Twitter before and I was curious how I did!

      I compile them from watching the shows. I’ve been in Atlanta since Friday and have not yet compiled Thursday’s or Friday’s stats. -_-
