Too bad the contestants didn't quite catch on to the "How do you" category, despite Alex's hesitation at accepting the first response. I'm guessing the writers were thinking they could simply reply with "How do you make Rice Krispie Treats?" or "How do you whistle?", since that would already be in the form of a question, rather than "What is how do you..." or simply "What is whistle?", "What is take blood pressure?", etc.
Annie Sullivan in the Miracle Worker? I always thought it was Anne Sullivan. I didn't think those names were generally used interchangeably, but looking at the wiki page for the play, Anne shows up 12 times on the page, but in both listings of the play's characters it shows up as Annie. Similar results on Ms. Sullivan's page, as Anne is used 30 times, but in referring to her depiction in a book, she is called Annie. Is it common for women to be called of these names, presumably Annie being used by close friends and family?
That was another very impressive performance by Ashok in the DJ round, as once he gets rolling on the higher value clues, his opponents have had a hard time keeping up. He has, I believe, seemed pretty comfortable with sports clues, so I'm guessing he was happy when the FJ category was revealed. It's do-or-die time tomorrow to see if he can earn possibly the last invite to the TOC.
Wow, 2 sports FJs in the last 4 shows. Don't spoil me Jeopardy!, or at least save some for whenever Bamaman or I gets on the show. I didn't instantly know this one, but Ruth seemed like the logical guess, and 1948 seemed about right for his death, though I didn't know he died that year off the top of my head. I'm guessing the 1974 was intended as a double hint, both to lead toward the year of his death, and also since that was the year Hank Aaron passed him, it would make sense that a biography would have been written that year.
