Sports Jeopardy! Recap – September 7, 2016

Last week, Joey Odom won his first; will he be able to win his second?

Next week’s Sports Jeopardy will be a rematch of the first game with the Danettes!

You can watch this game on Crackle!

Today’s contestants:

Terry Kent, a real estate attorney from Los Angeles, CA

Joey Odom, an I.T. systems administrator from Oxford, MS (1-day total: $5,000)

Terry did a Q&A with us many years ago after his original appearance on the “big show”!

The turning point of this one? Clues 14 and 15 of Double Jeopardy; Terry picked up 2,500 in rebounds off a neg apiece from Joey and Ari. Terry turned that into a run of five consecutive correct responses, culminating in the last Daily Double.

Also noteworthy: The contestants played the Double Jeopardy! round in a perfect left-to-right, top-to-bottom order! You don’t often see that!
