Quick Recap – November 6, 2015

Today’s contestants:

Sadie Iverson, a graduate student from Ventura, CA
Laura Ashby, an attorney from Marietta, GA
Mike Barrett, a cashier and writer from Medford, MA(1-day champ, $20,801)

     Laura is coming to our next panel on Sunday at 3:30 Central.
     Today and yesterday I have had a lot more to say about the episodes than in a long time, but I am still too unmotivated. Maybe next week I will actually do it. Oh, I just remembered next week is the ToC! I still have not asked someone who attended to write next week’s posts for a firsthand perspective, but I’ve known who I want to ask since before the tournament taped. It seems, on Facebook anyway, that he is out of town. If you’re reading this and were in the audience for the ToC, drop me a line any way you want.

Final Jeopardy category: Children’s Lit

Final Jeopardy clue: “As she arrived at the house of her new employer, ‘the wind seemed to catch her up into the air and fling her’ at the door.” I read this book as a kid and was highly entertained.

Mike 9200 + 6601 = 15801

Laura 15800 + 2601 = 18401 (winner) 
Sadie 2400 + 2400
