A CHAPTER IN THE NOVEL
HIS LAST NFL TEAM
Jerome went hunting early and came up with a Daily Double, under A CHAPTER IN THE NOVEL $600! Scores:
Jerome went for $1,000. His clue: For kids: “Up the Mountain to Alm-Uncle” & “Winter in Dorfli”. His correct response put him at $2,000!
Ed hit some buzzer timing in NATIVE LANDS just before the break to take the lead from Jerome! Scores after 15:
Alex went to the romantic story on Molly’s card; Molly’s pilot husband proposed by having a friend write “Just Say Yes” on the beach and taking Molly up for a flyover!
Back to the game, a Triple Stumper in HIS LAST NFL TEAM $800: In 1984 Franco Harris ran out the clock with Jim Zorn & Steve Largent on this team. $1000 being a Triple was even more surprising (to me at least)! Joe Montana went 17-8 over his last 2 seasons as QB for this Midwest AFC team
By the end of 30, scores were:
Lots of negs kept the score down.
DJ! round categories:
A CHEMISTRY SET
PUT YOUR LIPS TOGETHER & “BLO”
SMART STREETS $800 had the first Daily Double! Ed got to play it, with scores at:
Ed went much too small, betting just $1,400. His clue: The Emerson Playground is on Thoreau Street in this city. Ed said Boston, falling for the trap, and fell to $6,200.
This gave Jerome an opening, and he went on a mini run before finding the final Daily Double under A CHEMISTRY SET $1200! Scores:
Jerome bet $3,000. His clue: In zoology, it’s an insectivore; in chemistry it’s a unit related to atomic weights. Jerome had no answer and fell to $8,000.
The minute-to-go signal came with 9 clues left in the round! The “time up signal” came with 6 to go in the round! Unbelievable. So many clues unplayed (including 4 in THE CHORUS)!
Scores going into Final:
