Andy back with another recap!
Today, we’ve got Todd Coleman, Maggie Schreiter, and Will Anderson!
J! round categories:
THE BIG PICTURE
SPORTS SHORTS 2014
JUST FOR THE ELEPHANT
ALL THINGS CONSIDERED
NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO
THIS IS N-P-R
An early clue in THIS IS N-P-R: Your digit-al I.D.. While I came up with the correct answer, I also thought of “username & password” — which also has N-P-R in that order!
Will had some problems with negs early on; scores at the first break:
Todd’s daughter wasn’t buying an explanation that Todd was giving him, so Todd’s daughter asked first for a scientist, then a smarter scientist when told that Todd was a scientist!
The first clue selected out of the break, NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO $800, was the Daily Double! Todd got to play it!
Todd bet $1,200. His clue: Steve Inskeep & David Greene host this show in the A.M. in D.C.; Renee Montagne, not far from us here in Culver City. Todd said Marketplace and fell to $0.
The minute-to-go signal came with 9 clues to play; three sports clues and one N-P-R clues were left on the board!
At the half, the scores were:
DJ! round categories:
COUNTRIES SMALLER THAN PUERTO RICO
NOVELS WRITTEN FAST
SUN RECORDS ARTISTS
IN THE ATMOSPHERE
The negs just kept on coming through this round! Todd eventually got to the first Daily Double in this round, under NOVELS WRITTEN FAST $1600! Scores:
Todd bet $1,200. His clue: As William Faulkner sat writing, it took him 6 weeks to come up with this 1930 classic. His correct response put him at $4,200!
IN THE ATMOSPHERE was a category of words within ATMOSPHERE!
Maggie got the final Daily Double, under ANCIENT GREECE $1200! Scores:
Maggie bet $1,000. Her clue: In the 350s B.C. Demosthenes started warning Greeks about aggression by this Macedonian dad; no one listened. Maggie had no idea and fell to $5,800.
7 clues remained on the board when Alex said “a minute to go”. Todd got the penultimate clue to tie the game, and Will got the last one to keep it tied! Scores going into Final:
FJ! category: CANDY
FJ! clue: An early TV ad for this candy bar featured a fleur-de-lis flag & a song with the lyrics “fun for all”
Will 1800 + 1799 = 3599
Maggie 7400 – 7400 = 0
Todd 7400 – 7400 = 0
You know, I have to say that everyone bet that one properly, but sometimes you have to give the right answer, too! Will is now a 2-day champ, $23,199!
