I've seen "It's the X that fits the category" clues from time to time.
Never with quotation marks, and especially considering the show's leading article rule. "Chain" is not going to be a correct answer with "Chain" in quotation marks. (To say nothing of the fact that this is a teen tournament and Rumours came out 25 years before most of the people in this tournament were born.)

This material was probably appropriately challenging for teens. I blew threw it (as most grown-up J! fans should) with ease. 47 right, 3/3 on DDs, instaget FJ. And yet this doesn't even make the top ten list of reasons I wouldn't mind being a teen again. But that's another story....

Great job by these three. Hope the rest of the tournament is this high-quality. Congrats to Claire for moving on and to Tim and Autumn for first-rate performances, academically and personally.

60 R
DD: 3/3
FJ: :mrgreen:
LT: Private Practice, Moriarity, Kingdom Keepers, Run the Jewels, Boxing, Peso, Capital Gains Tax

Did the Jeopardy! clue crew screw up? Spain used the Peseta. Unless they used the peso long back.
