THE DAWN OF THE ATOMIC AGE
I really like Aggie’s handwriting!
David went 3/5 in NBA LAST NAMES. Things were pretty easy over the first 15 clues — with only one triple stumper! Scores after 15:
Apparently Mike Tyson was once rude to David in a press conference (though David does an excellent Tyson impersonation!)
Michelle took a motorcycle endorsement class just before getting married (she said that if anything happened, at least the cast would match the dress!)
Aggie spent two years traveling around Asia, when she was earning a graduate certificate!
CABINET $1000 was where the Daily Double was, and Aggie got to play it (as the 25th clue of the round!) Scores:
Aggie went for $1,600. Her clue: The Office of Natural Resources Revenue. Aggie gave the correct response and put her score at $3,400!
Scores after 30:

JUST BEYOND THE “H”ORIZON
WORLD HISTORY $1600 had the first Daily Double on the 4th clue of the round; Michelle got to play it! Scores:
Michelle bet $1,000. Her clue: On Jan. 26, 1808 George Johnston of Australia’s New South Wales corps led a mutiny against this Governor and arrested him. Michelle took the direction of “Australian cities named after people” (as I did; she said Melbourne, I said Sydney) and her score went to $4,600.
FEMALE BOOK CHARACTERS $1600 had the second Daily Double; Michelle played this one on the 8th clue of the round! Scores:
Michelle picked $2,000. What is it with contestants and being afraid to bet for the lead? Her clue this time: The first part of “Les Miserables” is called “Fantine”; the second part is named for her. Her correct response put her at $7,800!
There looked like a tape stoppage (as Aggie’s facial expression changed) on POTPOURRI $400 (This word meaning to raise anchor has nothing to do with how heavy it is; it’s from the old Saxon for to lift or carry) — she said “hoist” but it was not accepted!
At the end of the DJ! round, the scores sat at:
FJ! category: Bodies Of Water
FJ! clue: First encountered in 1648 by a man born in Russia, it was eventually named after a man born in Denmark
David 7600 + 4000 = 11600
Michelle 11000 – 4000 = 7000
Aggie 12600 – 9401 = 3199
David’ll be back tomorrow to defend his title!
My Coryat: $24,000 (34 right, 3 wrong)
