Feeling “Amoros”

     (I have to do it, and this is my last chance.)
     Today’s contestants were Jeff Amoros (who unseated Adam Marshall yesterday), Meg Price (from Wales!), and Rachel Winer (once stayed awake for 50 hours for an experiment, and she doesn’t even know the results!).  I notice sometimes Mr. Trebek is quick to heap praise on the champion, even when he really hasn’t proven himself.  Mr. Trebek did that again today.  I think he was in a little bit of a weird mood.  Why would he say that Mammals was a good way to start the round?
     In the category about sitcom spouses, I got the “I Love Lucy” triple-stumper.  I swept the easy category about the Ten Commandments.
     Did you guys think it was weird when Mr. Trebek asked Jeff to specify which “Long” he meant in the clue about Huey Long in the 1930s category?  I didn’t know there was another one.  I was proud of Jeff again, by the way, that he made another true Daily Double in the Jeopardy round.  It didn’t work out for him this time.  I didn’t get that one either.
     I was pleased that they mentioned my favorite board game, Trivial Pursuit!
     Is it just me or did they mention Tibet like three times in this game?
     I swept the Con Film Festival category in the Double Jeopardy round.
     My Coryat today was 23600Y.  The Final was an “instaget” for me, and all the contestants got it right, too.  Rachel wins.  Her Coryat was 12200Y, Jeff’s was 15200Y, and Meg’s was 9600Y.
