Vinny’s back! Will he win his fifteenth game this week on Sports Jeopardy!?
|Mandela Namaste, a student from Buffalo, NY
||Evan Burgmeier, a marketing and sales executive from Pensacola, FL
||Vinny Varadarajan, a y from Fords, NJ (14-day champ: $70,000)
This game saw Mandela going way-too-often to top-row clues; meanwhile Vinny ran O’SULLIVAN’S TRAVELS (about journeyman QB J. T. O’Sullivan) and went 3/4 in SUSPENDED! & HITTING FOR THE CYCLE; Mandela went 3/4 in 5 OR MORE OLYMPIC GOLDS. Evan put up a good fight, but an early missed True Daily Double (and issues finding buzzer timing) sunk his chances.
Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Vinny 23,500 (24 right, 1 wrong)
Mandela 11,000 (12 right, 1 wrong)
Evan 4,000 (6 right, 1 wrong)
Final Jeopardy! category: SPORTS POSITIONS
Final Jeopardy! clue: On a rugby team this position’s name refers to being the last line of defense; in football, it’s an offensive position
What is fullback?
Evan 4000 – 4000 = 0 (Lineman)
Mandela 11000 – 7000 = 4000 (Lineman)
Vinny 23500 – 0 = 23500 (I award you this # of points, & may Dan have mercy on my soul) (15-day champ: $75,000)
