    IIRC Ken mentioned the fatigue definitely sets in after a while - you could tell there was a part of him that said "that's enough, call it a run" on that last episode.

    Question now is if he makes it to the end of the season (airdate July-ish) knowing what we know now about Alex - there are stories of him doubled over in pain between tapings.
    I believe it. Back when I was playing online poker, there were tourneys that lasted 10+ hours easy, and I was exhausted afterwards. I can't imagine live tapings and such at that level.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    I've been on my feet for a full day at pinball tournaments (I often come way early to enjoy lunch/dinner/a few adult beverages and warm up or put in some time on a machine I'm not familiar with.) I was hurting the next day.

    I'm going here this weekend. I'm entering the main tournament and the classics tournament, and doing a bunch of other stuff such as the pinball haunted house (yes, that's a thing and it's awesome.) I anticipate deep hurting.

    Iíve done the same playing Magic: The Gathering. Playing for 8+ hours can be exhausting mentally.

    Yeah, there's maybe 10-15 minutes between episodes when taping, just enough time to select two new contestants, get their makeup touched up, and allow the defending champion to change clothes. Little time for the winner to reflect on the fact they won. That makes repeat champions all the more impressive, since after winning the first one your nerves can be shot and their might be a slight sense of easing up, so it's easier for one of the new contestants to have the edge that way. Also, most weeks they tape on Tuesday and Wednesday, so a span of 10 episodes can be taped in two days.

    Just under 1.94 M now. A good chance he gets to 2 million tomorrow. I wonder if at some point he hits a certain dollar amount and just walks away undefeated.

    Anyone watch the live Jeffersons/All In The Family bit? No way they could have recaptured the charm of the originals but I heard it was fun.

    Woody Harrelson was supposed to be Archie, right? The big "What?" I had was Marisa Tomei as Edith.

    She played Aunt May, why not Edith lol

    I was pretty excited for the Hulu miniseries of Catch 22, and was not disappointed. It wasn't fabulous, but I enjoyed it. The chocolate-covered cotton didn't make it in, and they pretty significantly changed the ending, but what can you do.

    Now that GOT is done I finally swung back to my DVR and can finish Gotham. Which for Network TV is as good as it gets. Better than a lot of cable shows too.

    Elementary is back for it's 7th and Final Season. Always enjoyed it as well.

    Blind Spot will finish it's last three episodes of Season 4 starting tonight. It has been renewed for a 5th and final season so it can hit 100 episodes which is the magic number for syndication.

    Only 74k for James today. I say only because it very realistically could have been 150k. He had 22k after the first round and his opponents were terrible, but one of them found both DD in DJ (and got both wrong). Only one opponent was left for FJ and she had less than 2k.

    He was in a position to go all-in on the first DD in DJ, which at that point probably would've been around 25k. If he gets that right he's at 50k. Next one he would probably go with 30k or so because he was so far ahead. Then in FJ he could've bet all but 4k.

    4 minutes in. 1st commercial break. He's at $18,600. This could be a $100k+ night.

    I think we're done for the evening here.

    All she had to do was riff an older, not quite so bright Mona Lisa Vito from My Cousin Vinnie.

    Over $130K. Ho-hum.

    He's just over $327,000 off of Jennings' mark. That might happen this week.
