In the spirit of the Olympics, I think we're going to have some fun by bringing back the TV version of the game we all know and love.
This time, we've got 8 US Olympians battling it out for bragging rights and a cool $100,000. Here's how it will work:
There will be two Crossword Rounds per match, with the winners facing off in the Scrabble Sprint. After all eight have played, the four players with the fastest times in the Sprint will qualify for the semifinals, with the two with the fastest time in that Sprint going head to head in the championship.
That being said, I need 8 to get this party started...
Mandoli: PSA to any potential newcomers: If you make an account, please be patient. We're manually approving accounts. Do not make a second account, because #2 won't be approved.

Mandoli: If I'm supposed to get a third shot, then let me have it at the first chance I'm allowed to get it.

gameshowmaniac: now of course the "powers that be" are suggesting a 3rd shot.

Mandoli: Please don't duplicate threads or put something that's already in an AP thread in its own thread. Thank you.

dare2be: Just saw this latest discussion. My wife and son both had 2 days of fever of about 100 and body aches/fatigue on 2nd shot. I just had a little fatigue (felt like a cement mannequin), but no fever. Moderna back in April/May

wildjackmonroe: It's funny; I did all of this major house cleaning and stuff for the week early, expecting I'd be out of it for a couple days after my second vaccine shot, but I didn't have anything else but a sore arm like the first time.

gameshowmaniac: @mandoli someone I know had pain in the opposite arm that was jabbed. weird

rewindium: Sore arm and some fatigue but nothing like a fever or other major effects and didn’t have to take any pain relief. Glad to be added to the second dose statistic which today is 62% for my province

Mandoli: On another note, you might not. My brother didn't have any side effects of shot #2.

Mandoli: You'll feel it later, like this morning. I had a fever and slept in the day after my second. I begged work to not schedule me for the day after, knowing I wouldn't feel good.

rewindium: Got the second dose at a mass clinic earlier today, no side effects
