Jeopardy’s G.O.A.T Tournament Winner

Song – Faith No More ~ “Epic” ( This tune is more meant for Brad Rutter 😆 )

So 2020 kicked off with a promise from last year to see, Brad Rutter, Ken Jennings, & James Holtzhauer face off for the title. Each one of them with his own stellar record from playing Jeopardy over the last 15 years. Brad Rutter with the most money earned, over 4 million, Ken Jennings with the most strategic plays, and James Holtzhauer with the most wins, having 32 straight ones until Emma Boettcher, beat him back in June 2019, but in ‘The Tournament of Champions’, he defeated her in November and qualified for Jeopardy’s ‘Greatest Of All Time’ Tournament this year. And we now know WHO that is. The challenge took place before and the Winner kept it a secret for a month. So the show aired on ABC Tuesday January 7th.  At the start, it was any Man’s game until we started seeing who the 2 Head Runners would be. Ken Jennings won the first game both times with his winnings totaling over 63k points in that hour with his first checkmark in place, since the first player to win all 3 games, wins the tournament, and these were hard questions. Then the next day James Holtzhauer won his set with over 82k points. Then the third game, Ken Jennings won with over 63k points. So what happened to Brad Rutter? Well, when you are playing against people over the years that aren’t that challenging to you, then end up in a real testing situation, people get to see the dumber side of you on live TV. It was embarrassing, this guy kept ending up in the negatives answering wrong on plain questions AND the Daily Doubles. He handled his own disappointment well though. Obviously, he’s a SMART guy to even be in the tournament though. His only chance was winning at least one game in a long shot, and then another to come in the running, but that didn’t happen. But, we went into the following week anyway with a 4th game which aired Tuesday January 14th, since Ken won 2, & James won his first and could very possibly win again forcing a 5th game. So this was a real face-off due to chance since either one of them was close to winning. The host Alex Trebek even said he brought the trophy out that night just in case. Ken Jennings kept getting the Daily Doubles & risked everything correctly most of the time. James Holtzhauer for the first time, got into the red, answering incorrectly and getting negative points. And on the final question, Ken Jennings WON by strategy risking ZERO points of his over 83k total when he gave his answer, which turned out to be correct. He won the trophy and 1 Million Dollars. The other 2 players received $250,000 for just competing in the tournament. It was fun watching. Oh & yes, I was able to answer a few of those difficult questions. I always do when I watch that show. So here’s YOUR Jeopardy Answer………

Kaepernick’s NFL Workout Fiasco

 

Song – Eric B & Rakim ~ “I Ain’t No Joke”

It was a disaster for the NFL, not him. So here’s what happened since we last left off with Kap. While the NFL tries to repair its image back to the heydays by getting 2 top Hispanic Singers, Shakira & J.Lo to sign on as performers despite other top performers who’re mainly Black refusing to because of the whole ‘side with Kap’ thing, to attempt to resolve it, they reach out to Colin Kaepernick. The NFL wanted the Workout to be held in a controlled environment of their choosing where the media will learn what they chose to disclose, but being a Conscious Brother, Kap wanted the venue to be more public so the people can see what’s going on. They should have never reached out to him! If there are still some grievances, that was a mistake. It wasn’t negotiated properly. I’m with Kap. After hearing the shit, he was right. At first, listening to the news account, the real info didn’t get out right why it sounded like Kap was a no show until the cameras got on him to explain what happened. It was a set up! A Black Idiot ESPN Commentator, Stephen Smith, always had something negative to say about Kaepernick, and he jumped on it the day before the Workout saying to Kap through the camera & pointing his finger, “You better show up.” Well he did, but the event created more problems than solutions. Had they just left Kap alone, it would have been better. What’s really going on here is that they don’t want him back. It’s like Fuck You Kap, you first took a knee on August 14th 2016, then got others to take it with you & ruined our brand, you sued, we paid you, now move the fuck on, get lost, go play with another league, but the public agrees with you that you should have your job back with us since we’re a GIANT football league here in the United States, having not worked in 3 years & you want to play ball. And he proved he was still fit & ready to play at the Workout. To be fair here, this whole conflict could have been avoided from the very beginning had some legally thinking person, left him the fuck alone. You see him there taking the knee refusing to recite the National anthem, just make a quick positive press remark about it and play ball. The NFL later on letting their blood boil, creating a big stink around it due to mounting political pressure from Trump, caused it to escalate to a valid movement. Ignore his Black Ass, get your press people on a side note to articulate some encouraging social change argument to explain his protest on YOUR football field and protect your brand. Nobody would have cared much had they kept everything else about the game, merchandise, & the half-time show. And stop focusing the cameras on him too much, it’s fodder for a trouble-making press person. The problem would have went away with the right grace & tactic. Is the NFL responsible for police brutality? No, but Kap used their platform to make a point. Was that fair to them? No, but it happened. So now we’re here. Their response could have been better. Addressing the issue in a sensitive manner since a lot of their players, about 90% are Black, would have been smart. A carefully worded ad playing on the airwaves supporting the political consciousness of your players would have softened any Right-Wing aggression coming against it to understand, though the games are meant to bring people together, we should strive to continue to repair the problems that divide us. The NFL missed an opportunity to be a proponent for change, when back in the 1980s ya’ll would have dealt with the topic wiser like the WWF, (now the WWE) & G.L.O.W (the original Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling). They had all kinds of diverse wrestlers & were smart to recognize their power in presenting forward thinking THEN on socio-political topics. If you couldn’t do that, then simply funding certain philanthropic projects in poor communities to help improve their daily lives would have been looked on as heartwarming since many of your players came out of there. But instead, after a number of days, the leaders of the NFL decided to attack Kap. Oh shut him up, remove him and let’s play ball, and life will carry on as usual, but a topic like Police Brutality can’t be removed from the table like that. You have a bunch of ‘Niggers’ playing ball for your league earning trillions of dollars for you and you can’t just dismiss their right to take a stand on a relevant topic. There was ample time for somebody to have delicately handle issues like that. I agree it shouldn’t be the elephant in the room when you take your family out to have a good time, but Kap was the player it emotionally affected the most to take a knee and NOT salute the flag, and no one in the administrative level was apparently equipped to discuss a proper method in dealing with it. Most problems can be diffused with the right person managing it. The NFL thought that person was Jay-Z but he drew criticism for some remarks that it’s time Kap move on from taking a knee and NOW some people are blaming Jay-Z for pushing the whole Workout event hoping it would turn out well, but simply offering him his rightful place back into the NFL would have wiser. So the ball is still in Kaepernick’s court. The NFL has not made any new motion towards Kaepernick since then. We’ll see if the Superbowl does well this year with the performances, since its last great success was with Lady Gaga before the Kaepernick controversy, and if ever their struggle with him gets resolved the right way. Anyway, you can enjoy more of Colin Kaepernick since the Workout incident now that sports gear giant NIKE released a new sneaker in honor of him.
