Nope, I added an extra possessive to Midsummer.

That error has ruled the response incorrect on J! before, I'm pretty sure. I thought I remembered an FJ where one or two of the contestants were negged because of it.

Plenty of times, most recently here, though I can't immediately find an FJ...

Three good weeks in a row, followed by one that makes me glad I'm not prone to cockiness.

At least I matched the defending champ with "Rhine and Elbe."
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.
