Who is Jason Kidd?


Was this ever a game of momentum! Roderick started out picking up the first eight clues (two of them off rebounds by Tony) to build a lead early on. The turning point came when Roderick failed to form a Daily Double response in the form of a question early in Double Jeopardy. After the second Daily Double, Tony picked up 8 of the final 11 clues himself to nearly lock the game up before Final, but Roderick got the final 2,000 point clue to at least give himself a shot on the final clue. Meanwhile, Ian just couldn’t get any buzzer momentum at all.

    I calculated Roderick’s Coryat for today’s game as 13,250.

      So… did I. I think I’m coming down with something. I’ve made a few mistakes today. Sorry about that and thank-you for the correction.

  2. Kicking myself for that blunder on the Ernie Banks answer. Got a little too excited there! Couldn’t get the buzzer momentum back after that. Thanks for putting this up!

      You’re welcome! (and congratulations on your victory, Roderick!)

    • Mark Barrett | December 14, 2016 at 4:19 pm |

      Roderick: Do you have information about more games for Season 3? Do you know if a game was taped after your appearance in Ep. 12?

      Andy: With Roderick’s post do you have access to his email to contact him directly to see if he has any insider information he can share?

      • Earl Holland | December 15, 2016 at 4:05 pm |

        Tony and Roderick’s game was the last show of that taping session (I was still there for the show). I know there was initial talk of them doing recordings in November.

        • Andy Saunders | December 15, 2016 at 4:14 pm |

          Interesting. As it stands now, it appears as though they did not tape any episodes in November. I wonder how long this hiatus is going to last for.

  3. Roderick Crabbe | December 22, 2016 at 12:47 am |

    Earl, good to see you on here! You were a great champion, but an even better guy! It was a pleasure getting to meet you on the show. Have a Merry Christma!!
