It must have disappointed Anna greatly to see a CANADIANA category on Monday’s game!
Hunter’s going to be joining us on the next episode of #JeopardyLivePanel, taping and airing on Monday, June 13 at 8:00 PM Eastern!
Scores going into Final Jeopardy:
Final Jeopardy! category: FAMOUS AMERICANS
Final Jeopardy! clue: Of his greatest accomplishment, he humbly remarked, “Pilots…take pride in a good landing, not in getting out of the vehicle”
Who is Neil Armstrong? (Incorrect responses, if any, and full stats, will be posted in the comments section).
Hunter 13400 + 13399 = 26799 (3-day total: $71,400)
Rick 14600 – 12201 = 2399
Remember to vote in our Poll of the Week!
As Armstrong has said many times in recent years in public speeches, “Pilots take no special joy in walking: pilots like flying. Pilots generally take pride in a good landing, not in getting out of the vehicle.” The line generally gets a big laugh, but it is accurate, and also underscores an important point. Aldrin and Armstrong landed together, working as a team, and the achievement belongs to them both.
In any case, this is Hunter’s third win, and you’ll find him on our ToC list in the morning!
