Quick Recap – October 16, 2015


Today’s contestants:

Matt Akridge, a program analyst from Hardinsburg, KY
Zelda Pulliam, an income tax specialist from Chicago, IL
Josh Silverman, a graduate student from Miami, FL (1-day champ, $21,201)

     When I looked for panelists for the next Hangout (tomorrow at 7 Central), I found that Zelda, near as I can tell, was an actress on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Notice she chose On Broadway first!
     Did you notice Trebek said “John Silverman” at Josh’s (long) interview?
     I love Josh’s fistpumps!

Final Jeopardy category: Baseball Teams

Final Jeopardy clue: “When translated, the full name of this major league baseball team gets you a double redundancy.”

Josh 20000 – 6401 (winner)

Zelda 9600 – 8600
Matt 13200 – 13000

My Coryat today was 11200.
