    I am watching this one now. These people are too smart for their own good. They over think everything.

    My wife kept on referring to him as "Gordon Gekko". And the constant movement was distracting.

    But he was from MA, so I was rooting for the hometown guy. Sort of, at least. I was more indifferent.

    My wife and I were calling him Gordon Gekko too. The lady he lost to is really good though,mi wouldn't be surprised if she was around for a while.

    We watched the Tournament of Champions the last two weeks. It actually aired in March I think, but we didn't see it.

    Like the guy named Alex who won. Smart bastage. Loved the fact he would do true daily doubles when he had $15,000. Or he would bid a dollar. We were hoping he would win, as he trounced his competition during his six game run as champion, and throughout the tournament.

    He did this in his game to get into the finals in Final Jeopardy:

    11 wins and $245,002 for Seth Wilson. Didn't like him at first but I'm rooting for him. Only 64 wins to go to break the record!
