  2. Anytime a major event is tied to 2005, I always think of New Orleans. I hope the players all get this right.

    Funny how things sometimes play out: the player who had the highest 2 day total after the 2 Fjs, (28.220) won the tournament, the player who was second after 2 FJs (26.880) finished second and the one with the smallest total after 2 days (20.800)finished third.
    A finish by the book, one might say. We have seen some weird second days in tournaments (e.g. when the one who was a distant third after day one won the whole thing by a country mile.)
    Congratulations to all player, especially David who was the only player to get both FJs right.

    Have a nice weekend everybody. Back to business as usual on Monday. Aloha!

    David Clemmons kinda plays like Philip Tiu.

  6. Does anyone know how to find what the catagories were in the first round of jeapordy were tonight?

    It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.
