Not gonna lie to y’all, I really was going to spam this thread with nothing but Alex Trebek clips. He really was a great host and by all accounts, a pretty sweet guy too.
Makes me think of my Jeopardy! story. I almost got on the show. I watched Jeopardy! pretty much all through high school and a good chunk of college, to the point where I was downright unbeatable in trivia contests. In my sophomore year of college, I applied to be on the College Jeopardy Tournament. I flew all the way to Orlando for the weekend, did a little bit of studying for the audition, but mostly spent my time wandering around the resort that the audition was taking place at (I forget where exactly, but it was a big friggin’ hotel).
The way the audition works is as follows (it might have changed in the years since I tried out for it; this is as best as I remember it):
First they give you a written test to see if you have the knowledge to play the game; it was a 25-question quiz and you had to get at least a 90% in order to advance to the next round. The questions were easier than a normal Jeopardy! test since it was just for the college tournament, which is a bit watered down compared to a normal Jeopardy! audition. I passed easily.
Then comes the second part of the audition: a mock episode of the show.
Those who pass the written test are brought up three at a time to play in a mock version of the game. The goal here is two-fold. First, they want to see how you perform under pressure. Anybody can play at home by themselves and get all the answers right. It’s a whole other thing to see how many questions you get right in an actual game (those buzzers are trickier to operate than you realize!). The other thing they want to see is how you act during a game. They’re looking for players who keep an even keel regardless of how they’re doing. You’ll notice if you ever watch Jeopardy! that none of the contestants ever really show anything in the way of emotion while they’re playing.
That was my downfall. When I got a question wrong, I would mutter “Dang it” or something similar and pump my fist when I got a question right. My heart was too much on my sleeve to be a good candidate for the show. I tried to keep it down, but some habits die hard.
I flew back to Houston the following Sunday after being politely thanked and dismissed by the producers. I never got close to getting back on the show again.
And then two weeks later, 9/11 happened.
Anyway, let’s get on to this week’s Dog.
In this tradition, all swear words have been replaced with [kitten] to make the thread safe for work.
What is “finest Hair of the Dog” tradition?
RIP, Alex Trebek.
Carlos Flores at 11:43 AM
RIP ALEX TREBEK
l4blitzer at 11:46 AM
As if we needed another reason to despise 2020.
Carlos Flores at 11:48 AM
What is, depression.
UprootedTexan at 11:52 AM
Oh [Durga] [kitten]it.
This one really hurts me.
This game is cancelled so I can go watch clips of Trebek being mean to nerds.
Carlos Flores at 11:58 AM
My all-time favorite clip will be where one of the contestants is explaining what “Nerd-Core” rap is, and his look of absolute dismissal is never-ending.
l4blitzer at 11:59 AM
I’ll have to go back and watch the clip where he tore into all the contestants for not even venturing a guess in an entire category of NFL questions
Carlos Flores at 12:01 PM
UprootedTexan at 12:01 PM
Honestly, Trebek was right to dismiss it.
Carlos Flores at 12:02 PM
“If you get this one right, (Dale Gribble Voice) I will die”.
UprootedTexan at 12:02 PM
The Texans game is on the two most obscure screens in this bar and frankly, I don’t blame them a bit for it.
(Jags first possession)
Carlos Flores at 12:03 PM
Getting ahead of things here and predicting Luton ends up with at least two touchdowns through the air.
l4blitzer at 12:04 PM
A game only the mother of a player on these teams could love...and if there is nothing else going on.
UprootedTexan at 12:04 PM
Well that’s one, Carlos.
Carlos Flores at 12:04 PM
Well, there’s touchdown number one.
(Jaguars score a touchdown, lead 7-0)
Carlos Flores at 12:05 PM
If I recall, Oregon State might run a competent offense, so maybe this kid can sling the pigskin.
UprootedTexan at 12:05 PM
Took 52 seconds to score on this secondary.
l4blitzer at 12:05 PM
Glad the team used the bye week to fix their issues on defense
(Texans first possession)
UprootedTexan at 12:07 PM
Maybe I should just replace this week’s HOTD with Trebek clips. It’d be a lot more uplifting.
A CHUM that...worked?
Carlos Flores at 12:08 PM
Look, some decent DJ yards!
(Watson to Cooks for the touchdown. Jags lead 7-6 with XP to come)
(Extra point is good, game tied 7-7)
Carlos Flores at 12:09 PM
And Cooks managed to turn on the jets? Maybe this will end up being a shootout.
UprootedTexan at 12:09 PM
LOLOLOLOLOLOL this game is going to be really stupid.
l4blitzer at 12:09 PM
We gonna have a shootout here...
Carlos Flores at 12:10 PM
Except we’re working with squirt guns on both sides.
Filled with urine.

What happens when the resistible force meet the movable object? This game could answer that fundamental question
UprootedTexan at 12:12 PM
(Jags second possession)
Carlos Flores at 12:13 PM
Would you happen to know anything about this Luton kid besides the fact he has the pleasure of throwing against this brainless secondary?
l4blitzer at 12:14 PM
A Brandon Dunn sighting?
Kenneth L. at 12:14 PM
Jaguars uniforms are ugly.
Carlos Flores at 12:14 PM

UprootedTexan at 12:15 PM
LOL “working” with Eric Murray.
(Texans second possession)
Carlos Flores at 12:15 PM
DeAndre Carter is never allowed to return a punt ever again.
Kenneth L. at 12:16 PM
UprootedTexan at 12:16 PM
What’s that, Carlos? You want to sign DeAndre Carter to a six year extension?! Your wish is granted!
Carlos Flores at 12:17 PM
DeAndre Carter is like those genie wishes where you think you’re getting a returner that has the combo of speed and shiftiness that you want, but also the unexplained downside of not understanding how to protect the rock.
Kenneth L. at 12:18 PM
His talents can be found literally anywhere
UprootedTexan at 12:18 PM
Under a rock, for example.
On the masthead of a football blog, for example.
In the Brazilian rainforest where as yet undiscovered tribes who have never heard of American football live, for example.
Carlos Flores at 12:20 PM
I’d bet that grandpa could do a better job, and he’s been gone since last year.
UprootedTexan at 12:20 PM
Ahhhh, an early morning CHUM there’s nothing like it.
Kenneth L. at 12:20 PM
I was wrong about Jonathan Taylor, I thought he’d get to the NFL and never be healthy
Carlos Flores at 12:21 PM
Oh man, DJ got murdered.
(Texans kick a long field goal, take lead 10-7)
Carlos Flores at 12:22 PM
Fairbairn makes a top 3 kicker field goal, as he should.
(Jags third possession)
l4blitzer at 12:23 PM
That Tracy Smith magic coming through
Kenneth L. at 12:23 PM
That was a [kitten] throw by Watson
Carlos Flores at 12:26 PM
Good tackle by Lonnie.
UprootedTexan at 12:27 PM
Josh Allen has thrown two touchdowns in the first quarter of this Seahawks/Bills game.
Somewhere in the desert, Big Matt is aroused and has no idea why.
Carlos Flores at 12:29 PM
I like that Blacklock is actually getting some playing time today.
l4blitzer at 12:30 PM
Reid has been active as well
UprootedTexan at 12:30 PM
Well it’s about [kitten] time, too. If we have to rebuild again it’d be nice to know just how much rebuilding we need to do.
Holy crap, Trebek outlived Connery by nine days.
Per Sarah Barshop, Johnson is being evaluated for a concussion.
Carlos Flores at 12:31 PM
Him, Connery, and Reynolds are chilling somewhere watching old SNL clips.
(Texans third possession)
l4blitzer at 12:32 PM
Wow, the D managed to go back to back drives without allowing points...progress?
UprootedTexan at 12:32 PM
I’d bet cash money right now that SNL is concocting a “Celebrity Jeopardy! In Heaven” script right now and it’s going to be insufferable.
@l4: Blind pigs and acorns more likely.
Ooof, ugly field position.
Holy crap he barely avoided the safety there.
Carlos Flores at 12:35 PM
Whew, that was one step away from being a safety.
This should give Luton some solid field position.
Kenneth L. at 12:37 PM
That was a safety
Carlos Flores at 12:37 PM
Wow, returner went a mile backwards lol
l4blitzer at 12:38 PM
Never thought of Scarlett as a “brick wall” but the radio commentators were ecstatic about that tackle.
(Jags fourth possession)
Carlos Flores at 12:40 PM
Wow, good tackle by Murray.
UprootedTexan at 12:40 PM
Got[kitten] JJ’s still fun to watch on defense.
(Texans fourth possession)
Carlos Flores at 12:42 PM
Is it weird that I kind of want to see a run?
UprootedTexan at 12:42 PM
l4blitzer at 12:43 PM
It’s Duke Johnson in the backfield...he is never to carry...oh wait, they actually let him carry it.
Carlos Flores at 12:43 PM
And it went pretty well!
UprootedTexan at 12:43 PM
And look at that, we’re actually making some headway in the run game.
Kenneth L. at 12:44 PM
Remind me to tell Weston that the triple option with the drop off to fells works and Weston lacks creativity

Oh man, looks like we might see Greg Mancz?
l4blitzer at 12:46 PM
Wow, Duke is CHUMing...but now we face an Oline injury
UprootedTexan at 12:47 PM
Carlos Flores at 12:47 PM
Defense had that read through and through.
UprootedTexan at 12:48 PM
I love having a quarterback who can make those tight window throws.
And then THAT happens.

Nick Martin didn’t get a hand on anyone. Howard got shoved back.

Carlos Flores at 12:53 PM
Kelemete is being checked for a concussion. [Kitten].
BigFatDrunk at 12:54 PM
I don’t agree with that late hit.
UprootedTexan at 12:54 PM
Unnecessary roughness on the glitter kitties.
Carlos Flores at 12:54 PM
Good block by Duke, though.
l4blitzer at 12:54 PM
Radio guys complementing Watson on his acting...
Carlos Flores at 12:55 PM
Andre/DeAndre would have made that catch.
UprootedTexan at 12:55 PM
Yes, DeAndre Carter would’ve made that catch. Because he’s tough, smart, and reliable.
l4blitzer at 12:56 PM
“Receivers with a big catch radius” Didn’t we have that at one time?
Carlos Flores at 12:57 PM
Looks like a Fairbairn kind of day.

Hell, I don’t even know how that “ Two Broke Girls” show ran for so long.
Good throw by Luton.
UprootedTexan at 1:03 PM
Almost had that one.
Kenneth L. at 1:04 PM
Hey blacklock is in. I’ll have to watch him
Carlos Flores at 1:04 PM
Philip Gaines has yet to surprise me.
l4blitzer at 1:04 PM
Oh, another student of Eric Murray’s
UprootedTexan at 1:04 PM
Has anybody seen Greenard at all? I remember a lot of people where vaguely optimistic about him.
Carlos Flores at 1:04 PM
I believe he’s been mentioned as providing pressure on the Jags’ last drive.
l4blitzer at 1:05 PM
With the current attrition in LB, we will get to see soon enough
UprootedTexan at 1:05 PM
The screen is so far away from my table that I can barely make out player numbers, let alone names.
Speaking of attrition.

We’ve been running a ton of 4 linemen looks today. Omenihu is down.
UprootedTexan at 1:05 PM
Kenneth L. at 1:06 PM
We are getting crushed by this child
UprootedTexan at 1:08 PM
I had a weird feeling about this. It seems like whenever the Texans face some player that’s never seen field time before the Texans make them look somewhat competent in their debut (Kyle Allen, Jacoby Brissett, etc.).
Carlos Flores at 1:08 PM
Exactly my feeling as well. It’s not even a BOB thing, it’s an organizational curse.
Uncle Rico sighting.
l4blitzer at 1:09 PM
Can remember when the Texans played Fitzpatrick when he just started for the Rams. Made him look like an All-Pro
(Jags touchdown, miss extra point. Game tied 13-13)
UprootedTexan at 1:10 PM
And Mark Sanchez’ first game with the Jets.
l4blitzer at 1:11 PM
Tracy Smith magic strikes again!!!
UprootedTexan at 1:14 PM
Someone was asking me today if the Texans had a good defense and I laughed. I mentioned that this was the worst defense they’ve had since 2010. But I have to wonder: Is this defense worse than the 2010 defense?
(Texans fifth possession)
BigFatDrunk at 1:15 PM
l4blitzer at 1:15 PM
Remember that the 2010 defense actually had a shutout...really can’t see this squad matching that
UprootedTexan at 1:16 PM
Fair point, considering we’re currently battling even with one of the worst teams in the league.
Carlos Flores at 1:16 PM
Was that K-JAX’s rookie year?
UprootedTexan at 1:16 PM
The year before we got JJ
(Duke Johnson fumbles the ball. Jags recover)
Carlos Flores at 1:16 PM
Oof, as bad as it was, I think this might be worse.
BigFatDrunk at 1:17 PM
This team is so bad it’s catchy.
(Jags sixth possession)
Carlos Flores at 1:18 PM
Great hit by Cunningham.
l4blitzer at 1:19 PM
No, no son, ya see, you are supposed to force turnovers, not actually turn it over
UprootedTexan at 1:19 PM
Nice sack by Cunningham there, at least.
l4blitzer at 1:21 PM
Murray and Gaines dropping an interception??? I’m shocked, shocked to hear that
UprootedTexan at 1:21 PM
[Durga] [kitten], Gaines, the only way that’s more of a gimme is if what’s-his-face playing QB for Jacksonville handed it to you with a big red ribbon around it on an edible arrangement.

TWO MINUTE WARNING:

Plenty of time to set up the short field goal.

l4blitzer at 1:31 PM
A short yardage running play that worked for us... with Duke Johnson?
(Jags seventh possession)
l4blitzer at 1:33 PM
Smith used the wrong spell on that return
Carlos Flores at 1:34 PM
Don’t put it past the Jags going for a home run shot here.
l4blitzer at 1:34 PM
We are talking about the Texans’ 2020 defense
UprootedTexan at 1:34 PM
Nah, this stinks of long field goal.
(Jags field goal is good. Texans lead 20-16.)
Carlos Flores at 1:35 PM
[Kitten] near 60 yards.
Well, at least it’s a ballgame?
l4blitzer at 1:35 PM
Kicker earned his paycheck there
Carlos Flores at 1:36 PM
This game is a bit of a stinker so far on both sides, but its had some fun moments. Hopefully we’ll see some meaningful adjustments coming into the second half. Michael Thomas should get some playing time at safety and I’d like to see some more of Jon Greenard.
l4blitzer at 1:38 PM
Two 1-6 teams going at it...this is about what you would expect. Gaines couldn’t catch a mosquito bite walking through a Texas swamp.

Galaxy brain stuff.
4D chess [Durga].
FINAL SCORE: TEXANS 27 - JAGUARS 25.
Offense - I’ll give it to Brandin Cooks this time for that killer opening touchdown the Texans scored in the first quarter.
Defense - If it has to be given to ANYONE, and I question this, I suppose it should go to Vernon Hargreaves III solely for that hilarious, and unfortunately called back, return on the interception he had in the third quarter. Because beyond that, he was really, really terrible in today’s game.
Special Teams - Getting kind of tired of giving this one to Ka’imi Fairbairn, but really there’s no other candidate for special teams.
So what do y’all have to say, BRB? Got someone else in mind for a game ball? Got a Jeopardy! story of your own you want to share? Want to rant about how way too close the Texans came to losing to the Jags? That’s what comments are for, friend. Or they were until Coral came along.
