James on Jeopardy TV show
I emailed James today based on the email on his Twitter account to see if he'd be at the Vegas NABC. First off, the fact that he responded within an hour is pretty incredible considering that he must have media requests out the wazoo. Anyways, he'll be there ...
He never sleeps on the couch
Yeah, we didn't do too well when we defended 3S while being cold for 5D. But always a fun match against Dave and Anne regardless of outcome!

Reevaluating GLM-Eligible Events
I was only focusing on NABC events, not anything related to team trials (the link has team trials in there and Juniors is NOT listed). At an NABC level, there's no big events Junior-related except collegiates (and the YNABC).
Reevaluating GLM-Eligible Events
Sorry, intended to keep the colon for text and not part of the link. Fixed for sure now.
