Jaclyn's mention of the gumwall in Seattle had me curious. Quite the sight after I used Google images to view it.

George's voice sounded a bit raspy that kind of reminded me of the times Alex would host while fighting a cold. Of course a cross country flight could do the trick as well. Other than that the new guest host seemed quite comfortable in the role, so he is either a natural or the previous day's warm-ups are good enough to get a professional quickly up to speed.

OLD TV THEME SONGS in the DJ! round. Thank you very much, writers, for the $6000 on my scoresheet. Unlike Jaclyn, I was not going to mix up one western show title for the correct one.

Tim was 4/4 on wagering clues and needed $5K more on DD bets for the wagering. The cushion was comfortably there to make sure he did not have to solve the FJ! clue (he was writing late) to win.

The FJ! category had me expecting a word origin type like quad(rangle) or dorm from sleep.

The clue had me start to match Jaclyn as I had 2/3rds of an F down before quickly switching to the correct response to have my pen down just before the music started.

MONSTERS - they are not ghosts, they are monsters dammit! It says Monsters right on the side glass of the game.

The Atari 2600 port first called them ghosts.

Wow that's obscure. I've never even heard of hasty pudding. And how would anyone know that the first headmaster's wife's was awful?

I too got it from the name of the club.

It was also a notoriously difficult Learned League Q a few years back:
A popular British emergency dish since the Middle Ages is what descriptively (and accurately) named porridge of wheat flour and boiling milk or water? Originating (as a term) in the late 1500s, its recipe was recorded in 1747 in Hannah Glasse's The Art of Cookery Made Plain and Easy.

Even before you had the game up, I was going to guess that the mix-up was between "the one they sang in The Blues Brothers" and "the one they sang in City Slickers".

YouTube has a funny clip of the latter from the German dub of the film.

For the chartity line that goes with each game:

Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign.

Is that okay? Should it just be Share Our Strength? Should I capitalize "campaign"? I copy it each day to only have to type it once, so want to make sure it's all good on day one.

Wow that's obscure. I've never even heard of hasty pudding.
From https://hastypudding.org/hasty-pudding-club-overview
UNIQUE. HISTORIC. PRESTIGIOUS. ICONIC.

In 1795, twenty-one Harvard juniors crowded into the dorm room of one Nymphas Hatch to establish a new on-campus society. The members pledged to maintain the Club's secrecy and "to cultivate the social affections and cherish the feelings of friendship and patriotism" amongst them. Most importantly, they mandated that "the members in alphabetical order shall provide a pot of hasty pudding for every meeting."

Over two centuries later, the Pudding continues as a cornerstone of the Harvard experience and is the source of lasting friendships. The oldest social club in the United States, the Pudding boasts a distinguished membership, including five U.S. Presidents (John and John Quincy Adams, Theodore and Franklin D. Roosevelt, and John F. Kennedy), William Randolph Hearst, Jack Lemmon, and many other luminaries in entertainment, academia, politics, business, and public service.

Throughout the years, the Club has continued to attract a dedicated membership that carries on our many special traditions including weekly Members' Nights, Lecture Lunches, Charity Night and Service Days. The Hasty Pudding Club is the only co-ed social institution on Harvard's campus and accepts members from all four classes.

There is no other collegiate organization quite like it in the world.
They are probably most famous for their theatricals:
A GRAND AND ENDURING TRADITION
TRADITION. SATIRE. FUN. PUNS The Hasty Pudding Theatricals is the third oldest theater organization in the world, preceded only by the Comédie-Française and the Oberammergau Passion Players. Born from the Hasty Pudding Club, the Hasty Pudding Theatricals performed its first musical, Bombastes Furioso, on the auspicious evening of Friday the 13th, December 1844. Since its humble beginnings in a Harvard dorm room, the Theatricals has grown into an original, student written and composed, full-scale pun-filled musical extravaganza, which culminates each year in a kick line. Some of America’s most prominent luminaries were first made famous by wearing drag on the Pudding stage, such as William Randolph Hearst, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Jack Lemmon (training for his famous role in Some Like it Hot). Ultimately, 50 students work together in the cast, band, tech crew, and business staff to stage a 35-show run in Cambridge, with additional dates in New York City and Bermuda.

The Pudding show has a long tradition of daring social and political commentary, never shying away from controversial current topics. Even early on, no one was safe from jabs from the Pudding authors, even their very own benefactors. By 1890, supporting the Pudding had become an official social cause among such patronesses as Mrs. Theodore Roosevelt, Mrs. Robert Winthrop, and Mrs. JL Gardener etc. But in 1910, John Reed, a senior, wrote the show Diana’s Debut which was a daring satire of the Boston Elite. The next year, The Crystal Gazer targeted the nouveaux riches. In 1913, the Panama Canal was the subject of Panamania. In 1919, the Pudding produced a show parodying the Russian Revolution, Clowns and Crowns—it was the most topical show to date (and for which the Pudding received threatening anonymous letters). In 1938, So Proudly we Hail mocked Hitler and Mussolini, two years before Charlie Chaplin’s Dictator.

But, although unafraid to tackle themes as strong as revolution, labor strikes, and class struggles, the Pudding never takes itself too seriously, consistently delighting audiences with uproarious antics and questionable puns

He worked hard to not get a lock game given he got all three DDs, though we have to give credit to Jen for building 13,600 without any.

This game also featured an ad saying that Jeopardy! was looking for college professors as contestants, but the ad didn't specifically say that it was for a college professors tournament.

50R. 3/4 on big clues. Guessed Clam Chowder instead of Hasty Pudding. Once I saw Figgy Pudding I knew the answer. I've seen clues about the Harvard Hasty Pudding Club before and I think it will stick now.

I got 50 right! Woo-hoo!
Spoiler
Some clues that I missed that I want to get next time are Rod Serling, Fun Home, stickball, demolition derby, and glazier.
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

FJ: I don't know why I knew Hasty Pudding -> Harvard. Must be the theater connection, and as a phrase in "Yankee Doodle", the term was in my memory bank. This term, Skull and Bones, Eli, Whiffenpoofs are my sum total knowledge of Ivy league minutiae.
Tim Moon did not shoot the moon on any of his opportunities, but still got great value by denying his opponents the option.
The CC showed "glazer" for "glazier".
The benzene clue was well written, but very technical :
C6H6, this aromatic hydrocarbon typically derived from petroleum, is used in the manufacture of detergents & fuels
It is the "aromatic" part that makes it slightly more accessible for the freshman organic chemist. Benzene is the simplest building block for this whole family of compounds which basically accounts for most of the good stuff of biology and life (thank you caffeine ;)).
