    Thursday night showed that James can be beaten. The guy played the way he does and was very good. Was beating James on the buzzer with things they both knew, not all the time, but enough to take away the champ's normal momentum. I thought after that show that with anyone else in the #1 seat, he'd have won and become a multiple-day champion.

    I guess it's a bit polarizing. My wife told me the other night she can't watch the guy either and usually turns to something else. I usually leave it on but I'm also working at the same time it is on anyway so I can pay attention to what I want to.

    The problem is that this is one time in however many he's won in a row that was even competitive to the point he stood a chance at losing absent a math error in Final Jeopardy.

    'Jeopardy James' just flows better.
    Ken should be thrilled with JH's run; it's just making Ken more famous too.
    74 is alotta times to win - it's more impressive than the money total.
    On the other hand, JH's 97% correct-rate vs. Ken's 91% is mighty impressive too.

    I was surprised none of the contestants knew what a pergola was tonight.
