Meanwhile, for some reason I was looking up the reaction to Fred on Twitter; it seems like a very strong majority of the reaction is positive towards him, and I’m glad to see that! If things keep going well for him, I have a feeling that Fred might be up for one or two of the 2016 Andy Awards!

Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: 20TH CENTURY AMERICA
Final Jeopardy! clue: The 1970 follow-up line “We’ve had a main B bus undervolt” was addressed to a listener in this city
What is Houston?
Gerry 8600 – 8598 = 2 (no answer)
Sonam 16200 – 12201 = 3999 (Philadelphia)
Fred 20800 – 7500 = 13300 (Los Angeles) (3-day total: $49,600)
(It was the follow-up line to “…we’ve had a problem.” That was a forehead-slapper of a miss on my part. Not that I’ve watched “Apollo 13”, but did they say this line in the film?
Meanwhile, Fred gets on the ToC Tracker page in the morning, and I hope he doesn’t mind this shade, but DUDE. You’re playing with fire!
I’m trying to figure out where Sonam was going with her number as well.
