OPENING REMARKS
Alex: Thank you, Johnny. Hi, everyone. John Avila, our champion, plays the sousaphone. You heard that on yesterday's program. At the end of yesterday's program, he told me that he might use some of his $14,000 in winnings to buy a new sousaphone. Those things are expensive.

THE CONSTITUTION (5/5, including 1 correct Daily Double)
PRE-AMBLE (4/5) (Alex: Each correct response will be a word that comes before "amble" in the dictionary.)

SCORES AT THE FIRST BREAK
John: $7,000
Andrea: $600

CONTESTANT INTERVIEWS



Alex: Pete Tachibana is a bartender from North Highlands, California. That beer category's tough! Couldn't they come up with something like Coors?

Pete: That's what I was expecting.

Alex: Yeah. You are a doer of good deeds with regard to blood donation.

Pete: Yes.

Alex: Tell me how much blood you have given over the years.

Pete: One donation away from 13 gallons.

Alex: Holy smokes! What blood type are you?

Pete: O-positive.

Alex: O-positive. Is that the universal donor?

Pete: O-negative is.

Alex: O-negative. Okay.




Alex: Andrea Keppers is a history educator from Colorado. You are an educator for parks and open space system. I don't know what that is. What does that mean?

Andrea: Well, the county where I work is right in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. And they have a system of open space parks with a lot of historic sites, ruins, ranch houses. And I get to go out in the parks and tell people about those historical sites.

Alex: Well, good for you. It's like being a docent, in other words.

Andrea: It is. It's paid, however.

Alex: How nice.

Andrea: Yes.

Alex: Good for you.




Alex: John Avila, an attorney from Arlington, Virginia. This man is not only bright, he is athletic. He had a varsity letter that he earned in high school in...

John: Girls' basketball.

[Laughter]

John: One of my favorite teachers was the head coach, and I started doing P.A. announcing, and I was also the statistician for the boys' and the girls' team. And at the end of the year I got invited to the banquet for varsity athletes and was awarded a varsity letter in girls' basketball. For excellence in P.A. announcing and actually broadcasting on public access TV.

Alex: Great claim to fame.

TRIPLE STUMPERS IN THE JEOPARDY! ROUND
SCRAMBLED KEGS $400: Perfect for award season:
PROBABLE BIB NUTS

SCRAMBLED KEGS $600: Out with the old:
CLEAN STEW

SCRAMBLED KEGS $800: Tonight is kind of special:

(Andrea: What is the best defense?)

Andrea: $2,600
Pete: $1,400

Markeith Loyd was just caught, so I get to have 2/3 of the game pre-empted for the talking head to drone on for 20 minutes and showing us the same damn videos over and over again.

And now it looks like the Chief of Police will have a news conference at 8:30, so there will be absolutely nothing on TV tonight other than this crap.

I wasn't a fan of the Odd Combined Responses category. Normally, I like the quirky final categories (Before and After is near and dear to my heart), but this category seemed unnecessarily abstruse. I was pleasantly surprised to see the players move speedily through both boards, though; this felt like the best-paced game in the past couple of weeks.

LT on Pabst Blue Ribbon (along with a couple others I don't remember)--helps to be not that far out of college. ;)

No clue on FJ. I need to brush up on my Shakespeare.

I had the right author for FJ, but the wrong play. I had The Tempest.

Andrea not taking a guess on that final clue was painful. Wouldn't matter if she guessed wrong, but guessing right would've given her a shot to win. Even more painful since she was the only one to get Final! right.

As for me, guessed HMS Pinafore. Never considered Shakespeare at all.

INstaget FJ and surprised to see it a a TS. Illogical bet on a runaway game, why offer a tie? No possible advantage whatsoever. Here's a contestant who proved she could challenge you in open play and you offer to let her catch you so you can... what, to give her another chance to beat you? I'll take the unknown player in the green room, please! Now 17 FJs and counting, will I beat my record?! :o

47R; surprised myself on the wordplay puzzles as I usually don't catch them fast enough. LT: "d"-penny (did you ever go to the hardware store with Dad and notice how the nails are sorted by weights, printed as 4d, 6d, 8d, etc etc? That's 'pennyweight'! Still in use in my hometown Mom&Pop..; In German V = W in sound...' 1957; 3 Faces of Eve; P = Phosphous (luminescent); FJ.
The corridors of my mind are plastered with 3M Post-It notes!

A couple of things...

He didn't offer a tie, you may want to double check your math.

There are no longer co-champions, had they tied there would have been a tiebreaker clue, so the unknown player in the green room isn't really a factor.

Poor Andrea was just $1100 short of preventing a runaway and having a chance at winning with a sole FJ get. With the trend of awful wagers from 2nd and 3rd lately, we might not ever find out if she would have known to wager enough to catch John. The zero wager casts doubt IMHO.

If there's a box for "I thought moro meant dead" in the weekly poll, I'll be checking it. I'm not sure what that has to do with HMS Pinafore, but it's not like the captain was never sick at sea.

Moby Dick briefly crossed my mind as well, but I knew it had to be wrong.

Needless to say, I didn't come up with the correct response.

Of the DDs, I surprisingly, and quickly, got Handel.

Ditto.
That beer category was tough.
Blurted out K for phosphorus instead of P. That's a costly mistake.
Surprised to see composers category so soon ... Wasnt it last week only?

Coryat: $30,200
43 R/4 W
DD: 3/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: Pabst Blue Ribbon, Newcastle, Lowenbrau, abstinence, human lefts, P

I tried for several seconds to figure out what play might be about a dead captain, but I eventually came to peace with the fact that "Moro" must mean "Moorish."

Two costly slips of the tongue for me with Saarinen for Sibelius and Afternoon Special instead of Afterschool Special.

I often wonder about brands that were once ubiquitous but then disappeared. Lowenbrau is one of those.

Disappointed that the lady in second place didn't buzz in for the final clue. The answer was a single letter, so there was a 1 in 26 chance (or even lower with any basic knowledge of elements) of getting within 50% of the leader.

Hey! Let me make my own post. :) Obviously just based on page 1 here that will be a poll choice. I'll see if I work in "Moro" or not.

As often happens the thumbnail is a scoreboard spoiler, so just click in the middle and avoid catching any details.
That was cool for James Arey to get that clue appearance doing his ¡Three Amigos! move. He was around on one of the older official message board incarnations and I've seen him post on FB, so I'm sure he either saw it or heard about it.
