Collier and delegates to Constitutional Convention for the missed FJs.

Didn't remember Maude being Edith's cousin, but "All in the Family" connection + Findlay was sufficient.

A little to old to have been a fan (though I did like the "Commander McBragg" segments), but could have named the bird correctly just from "Adams" and "penguin."
I'm not the defending Jeopardy! champion. But I have played one on TV.

This is my third time getting 4 out of 5 FJs in one week. I'm still chasing that elusive 5 out of 5.

I was not spoiled about Matt's loss, thankfully. I only realized Matt was in trouble once Jonathan hit the second Daily Double, which was pretty late in that round. When Jonathan found DD3 right after that, that's when I realized Matt's chances of losing were actually very high.
FJ get-rate for S36: 60/190 (31.6%)
FJ get-rate for S37: 82/230 (35.7%)
FJ get-rate for S38: 31/60 (51.7%)

Number of weeks where I solved 4/5 FJs this season: 3
Number of weeks where I solved 5/5 FJs since S35: Still working on that...

When I had absolutely no guess about the publishing brothers on Tuesday, I wrote "what is Penguin?" just as a joke. I was a bit startled to see that come up as a contestant's actual answer.

And there went my streak of 15 straight correct FJs. At least I've gotten back on the horse and started a new streak on Wednesday (now up to a robust 3, thank you very much).

I have missed the last three games because work took me out of town, so thanks to all you good folks who manage to get game summaries up on this site so quickly. Very much appreciated.
