“JEOPARDY!” 7/14/17

Vicky Smith (South Portland, ME): Children’s book review editor
Larissa Dizon (San Diego): Academic adviser
2-DAY CHAMP: Gavin Borchert

BB:
ABBREV. #1 TV SHOWS
NATION STATE
KID LIT (good news for Vicky)
YOU GET A “D”
ICYMI
HIDDEN GEMS

Vicky wraps up a TDD for the $800 Kid Lit clue having a $1200 beginning to her credit; Larissa’s on the board w/ $200 & Gavin’s $200 on the wrong side.

Milo of Phantom Tollbooth fame learned you could only get to the Isle of Conclusions by doing this.

“What is being logical?”…sorry- what is by jumping? The BoT wave off the last three Nation States.

HS:

Gavin: $800/Larissa: -$600/Vicky: $1,800

ATTEMPTED LT: $1600
SOLE UNATTEMPTED TS: $600 (ICYMI)
TOTAL LT: $2200

CS:

Gavin: $3,600/Larissa: $1,200/Vicky: $3K

DJ!:
KANSAS HISTORY
THE BIBLE
MUSIC TO MY YEARS
THE ORIENT EXPRESSION
BIG BEN
YOU CAN SET YOUR WATCH BY IT

DD #1 is awarded to Gavin when he asks for the $1200 clue in You Can Set Your Watch By It & he narrowly just gained the lead $9200 over Vicky’s nine large & Larissa’s $4800. He’ll wager three grand.

For yrs. the third U.S. infantry has been doing this ritual “every hour on the hour” at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

“What is the changing of the guard?”…no changing of the guard in terms of first place right now. Larissa takes DD #2 $1600 about The Bible & can risk up to six big ones; Gavin’s ahead of Vicky $13K-$9400. This Larissa gambles half.

In Romans 1 Paul said “I am debtor both to…” the barbarians & these people from whom “barbarians” derives.

She shakes her head as she says “Who are the barbers?”- who are the Greeks? Time’s out prior to the final two bits of Kansas History.

DJ! LT: $6800

Pre-Final S:

Gavin: $15,800/Larissa: $3K (OUT)/Vicky: $9,800

CORYAT SCORES:
Gavin: $14K
Larissa: $6K

FJ! #220: CONTEMPORARY AMERICAN AUTHORS

This Pulitzer winner changed his first name to that of an Irish king, avoiding assocs. w/ a famous ventriloquist’s dummy.

LARISSA: “Who is Fitzgerald” (BUSTS)
VICKY: “Who is (Cormac) McCarthy” (DOUBLE) = $19,600
GAVIN: “WHO IS CORMAC McCARTHY?” ($5K) = $20,800
