Quick Recap & Final Jeopardy – March 11, 2016


It sure makes for a sexy headline, but I went on the Larry Fedoruk Show recently to explain why I think Victor isn’t going to be “the last Canadian”.

Today’s contestants:

Gordon Moffat, an e-discovery professional from Nashville, TN
Victor Ferreira, a transplant immunologist from Cambridge, ON, Canada
Katrina Mundinger, a musician from Minneapolis, MN (2-day total: $22,000)


Also, as I love to point out: Victor is the second alumnus this season of the Guelph-Cambridge Reach For The Top League to appear this season, joining Markus Kolic.

Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Gordon $20,200
Katrina $15,400
Victor $5,200

What is the Constitution of the Confederate States?


Victor 5200 – 0 = 5200 (What is the Gettysburg Address?)
Katrina 15400 – 5000 = 10400 (What is the U.S. Constitution?)
Gordon 20200 + 4500 = 24700

Here’s the full text; the preamble is below:

We, the people of the Confederate States, each State acting in its sovereign and independent character, in order to form a permanent federal government, establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity invoking the favor and guidance of Almighty God do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Confederate States of America.
