For next week I am lining up the games to archive. When I enter a new person into the Archive I have to include how they did in the tournament. I have notes and of course the tapes while often I find it easier to recall if a player was QF only, semifinalist or finalist by looking at the Wikipedia article for the College and Teen players. Seniors not available is old news.

Today the college page looked different to me with a lot of the player information year by year gone: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeopardy! ... ampionship

while in July I could look at let's say 1993 and see the player names and which round they made it to

Who, what, where, when why?
Some wiki editor has a bee in their bonnet about it not being sourced, per the revision history.

https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?ti ... =908323989

This link will take you to an older version of the page, with the names you seek.

The same editor has also nominated the page for deletion.

Thank you Myron and Sg for the previous page link and update that the page is in danger. No matter what happens on Wikipedia it won't affect whatever progress I can make on archiving the tourney games.

I found Jack Mahoney Intros on YouTube. I might be interested in his full episodes.

No place in the Archive for them, but these recently-uploaded French episodes of Jeopardy! from 1989 are well worth watching. At the very least fast-forward to Jeopardy! Finale, to hear the knock-off think music and to marvel at that meticulous light-pen handwriting.

Nice to work on a game with 0W across the board other than Linda’s unfortunate FJ! clue miss although her wager would have kept her from the finals also.

Side note: "The Rubberband Man" by The Spinners is great background music while archiving.

Another for the list of J! contestants sharing a famous name as the other Don Maynard is in the NFL Hall of Fame.

The Nat King Cole clue was a reminder that 42 years later my dad is still haunted by saying he could name that tune in 3 notes. He could not recognize it even though he knew/knows all the words. If he had told Cissy to, "Name that tune" after she bid 4 notes he would have won instead as afterwards she said she did not know that song.

Interesting the very last clue in DJ was closely related to the response in FJ.

I must have missed a / or <> when trying to do the useless mp3 link and it wiped out all of the wording. Thank you. Should be okay now.

My recording has almost non-existent audio in spots so I relied on a combination of lip reading and Google-fu for some of the hopefully correct responses. If anything looks awry let me know.

Were any of these clues in "The Jeopardy Book" or "The Jeopardy Challenge"? You might try to check missing answers there.

My flashcards are looking over THE WIFE MARRIED and shaking their heads.
[The song was not played going into the break.]
You sure about that? Maybe the audio just dropped out. ;)

I got DJ DD1 right because of a British comedy sketch. "The Two Ronnies" did a spot-on imitation (to my understanding) of the game show "Mastermind," except the contestant's area of expertise was in answering the question before last. This causes some odd alignments between questions and accepted answers. (In spoiler space in case someone wants to see the Daily Double before I spoil it, or wants to experience the sketch for the first time by watching it on YouTube instead of reading it)
SpoilerShow
(The prior question was "Complete the quotation: 'To be or not to be...'")
Host: What is Bernard Manning famous for?
Contestant: That is the question.
Host: Correct. Who is the present Archbishop of Canterbury?
Contestant: He is a fat man who tells blue jokes.
Host: Correct. What do people kneel on in church?
Contestant: The Right Reverend Robert Runcie.
edit: deleted stray spoiler tag from quote

A clip from the 1993 College QF5 game that I plan to add to the Archive on Thursday. I won't get all of what Alex said verbatim though I'll try for the gist of the remarks. It was too funny not to share.
