Dyakowski on Jeopardy this Tues.

Hamilton has also places left guard Peter Dyakowski on the nine game injured list following his knee injury in the 101st Grey Cup.

Dyakowski, who was doing some light jogging at camp today, isn’t expected to return to action until September.

By the way, you can see Dyakowski with Alex Trebek on “Jeopardy? this coming Tuesday night.

Great interview with Canada's Smartest Person and soon to be Jeopardy contestant.

I'll take Crackhead Politicians for a hundred Alex :lol:

I love his answer to dumbest thing he has ever done.

"Oh, that’s a long list. I tore my patellar tendon in the Grey Cup—I’m rehabbing now—so playing football for a living is probably a good place to start."

He'll be in tough. A female contestant on the show right now has won about 25 games in a row

He's definitely got his work cut out for him. She is now the record holder as the woman with the most number of wins and the most money won, and she's second overall for consecutive wins, trailing only Ken Jennings. And in most of her 20-some-odd games, she's been so far ahead by Final Jeopardy that there's no way she can lose - unless she pulls a "Cliff Clavin".

It used to be that contestants who came second to a five-time champion would get invited back at a later date. I'm pretty sure they stopped doing that when they got rid of the limit of five games about ten years ago. So it could be a one shot, bye-bye for him. Unless he's the one to finally knock her off the podium. Could happen.

Already have the PVR set to record, so I'll definitely be watching - live, if I remember.

Lets think of some categories that he might get the upper hand over the current champion.

Names if CFL quarterbacks
Bars in Hamilton, Calgary and Regina.
Facts about Marwan Hage
Former Ti-Cat coaches who were terrible

From his interview:

“Geography and British history are my strongest areas, but I’m hoping I get categories like Canadian Football Rules and Tim Hortons Pastries.”

As long as there aren’t too many US politics questions. But there always seems to be a category like “Vice-presidential Candidates” or “19th Century Secretaries of State”. It’s almost like the producers want to prove that Americans are smarter than the rest of the world, and throw in categories like this to handicap Canadians and other foreigners.

Ahh yes... The inevitable American Cultural Bias. I can see why they have those questions and categories. It is an American game show produced in the US for an American audience with the majority of players being of American citizenship. I wouldn't read in some nefarious plan by the Americans to show some kind of superiority. Besides, if a player from another country or culture wants to play, the "americanized" questions shouldn't be a surprise. Just watch a few episodes.

Considering most Americans can't even point to the United States of America on a map, I think Dyakowski should be fine.

Guess I should have put that in the Tongue-in-Cheek font.

Plus, there's almost always at least one Canadian question in there somewhere. And I have watched "a few" episodes. (I mentioned in my earlier post that my PVR is set for the show. I guess I should have mentioned that it's set to record the series, not just tomorrow's show.)

Trust me, Julia isn't your stereotypical American.

She lost tonight.

One of the first times, if not the only time, she was trailing going into Final Jeopardy. (And I would have gone with Stephen King.)


Good luck tonight Pete!!! :cowboy:


(Yes, i know it was recorded months ago. So what?)

Good luck to "Canada's Smartest Person" tonight.

He's so smart he knows all of the questions they will be asking tonight! :lol:

He's so smart he also knows all of the answers. :lol:

Let's hope his intelligence was in order back in February. :rockin:

My favourite all time Jeopardy answer was: "This is the first country you come to if you go straight south from Detroit Michigan".

The question, of course, is "What is Canada". (Windsor being south of Detroit due to how the Detroit river doesn't go straight north to south between Lake St. Clair and Lake Erie).

Alex Trebek was born and raised in Sudbury, so occasionally Canadian based questions like this seem to be thrown into the game. I don't know if he is responsible, but I like to believe he was.

Good try Peter, congrats on getting there!

he better get back to playing ball sooner or pray they dont strikethat 1200 wont last long. Good job pete nice to see u on tv but id rather see you on tv in blackn gold

"What is a hamstring?" He better have gotten that one!

Nice of him to take the blame for the Grey Cup loss. :lol:

He did better then most of us would have done proud of Pete
