    I remembered who it was — Joel Pool. By the May 23rd game this year, I mentioned at the end that he was becoming famous for leaving out the verb in his Final Jeopardy answers. He is a 6x champ. We’ll see if he does it in the Tournament of Champions.

    Agree with Michele – Colby did not put it in a true form of a question since he left out the “is” but if what VJ says is true, he is “okay” but not in my book;)

    As far as “misspellings” that is like adding an s to a word, waiting and waitin are pronounced differently.

  3. VJ says:

    I was surprised myself because I thought that they don’t penalize for misspellings — only if it changes the word to another word entirely. Leaving off the G didn’t change it to another word entirely.

    As for Colby, leaving out the verb didn’t make his answer wrong. I remember another player who did that, although the name escapes me at the moment. I’ll put a link to it if I remember his name.

    Ironic that it was a teacher — even if she wouldn’t mark a student wrong for that, she would certainly red pencil it. LOL

    Colby should’ve been disqualified also. He wrote “What Waiting for Godot” he did not put the word “is” in there. How was that allowed?
