Post On TV
For those of you who might be interested...

In March, I was in LA and taped an episode of Jeopardy. That episode is scheduled to air this Friday, July 13th. I can't tell you how I did until it airs, so if you are inclined to see if I'm the next Ken Jennings, you can watch and find out!

Wow that's awesome. I didn't realize they were that tape delayed, 4 months is a long time to have to keep quiet.

I have been able to tell family and friends, but am prohibited from posting anything about the results publicly or on social media or in the regular media. What I can tell you is it was really a blast!

I have no way of recording it digitally, unless someone far more tech savvy than I has the ability... would appreciate if someone else who can do it would be willing to share a copy with me. :)

Tough final jeopardy question. I sure as heck had no idea. I did know all the "bull" questions though. My wife was surprised I knew the "boullion" one.

How many did you feel you knew but couldn't buzz in fast enough?

I hate some of the categories they have some times. I didn't know crap on the Kathy bates movies, but would do a lot better on Van Damme movies or something :lol: .

You did well Brian! I thought for sure you were going to win when you went on that hot streak. Tough to lose it all in final Jeopardy, but hey, you did better than I could ever hope to do!

Thanks! It was truly a blast just to be on the show! I knew the answers to all but about 10 or 15 questions. But buzzing in is one of the key things that makes the difference. One of the things we were told during auditions was that contestants know the answers to 90% of the questions and it usually comes down to buzzer timing. Plus, in the heat of the moment, it's really easy to draw a blank!! If any of you ever has the chance to be on a game show, go for it and enjoy every second!

you did really well.. I watch some jeopardy and I think a lot of days you would have won.

I know its a lot different being on the show than doing it at home.

I had already seen this post when I started watching, so when they introduced her, I thought "b*tch"... :o :lol:

Good job, buddy. It certainly isn't everybody who can get on that show. Even nowadays I only know about 10 answers (or questions) suring a show, and that is on a good day. You represented Vikings Message Board very well!!! Had you embarrassed yourself terribly, I would have asked Geoff to ban you :rofl: (just kidding :) )

I cannot even convey the traumatic effect the move had on my Viking psyche! Haven't I suffered enough? :rofl:

You're a Vikings fan. There's no such thing as suffering "too much."

Get this: I was in a bar Sunday evening and ran into a friend who told me his old roommate A.J. was just on Jeopardy and won over $50k. I mentioned seeing your post in the forums and wondered what the chances were that he was on the same show as you...

That was cool! Aside from your Cliff Clavin at the end, it was a good game for you! What did you get as "perting prizes"?

Third place gets $1000, but you have to pay your way out there and hotel. So basically, I got a free trip to LA!
