Damn kinda had to be a double triple there I guess

I will now share my greatest scrabble moment, apropos

I was down like 200 with maybe ten tiles left in the bag, and I popped down SIERRAN for 80-odd points, but in doing so set my opponent up for the triple, couldn't be helped, I had to play SIERRAN and pray

I drew the last seven tiles I was going to get and it was UNKETED, which is nothing and has the potential to be nothing. But then I thought, well, junket can actually be a verb and I looked around and the J wasn't out yet, and then I thought man my opponent is totally gonna play the J on the top center triple here for the automatic 24 and I am totally gonna drop JUNKETED on her ass

And then she did, icing me, putting me down 125 or so with one play and zero tiles left

So then I played JUNKETED immediately like I was waiting for it, which I was, and I went out as she went into shock

My finest hour. I still have a picture.

Thanks for tuning in
