What is “British invasion”?


Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

The 1812 reference is clearly to the War of 1812. However: to many people “invasion” applies that the British were the aggressors in this conflict, which seems tenuous to me, considering it was the Americans who declared war on Britain in June 1812 and certainly invaded British territory (Canada) first. Granted, most Americans I know also claim victory in this conflict, which again, considering Canada was invaded first, Canada/Britain certainly did a better job of defending its territory than America did on the offensive!

Of course, the musical British Invasion essentially began with Beatlemania in 1964. While the odd British group had a #1 hit before then, it was the Beatles that cause the massive influx of British music to reach American shores.

    • Thanks to Jay Johnson for providing me with a full chart of this game.
  2. I don’t even think that Philip Tiu qualifies for the Tournament of Champions.

      Most likely not, as there will be another college champion and teachers tournament champion before the next ToC, which I think will push Philip off the tracker list.

      • Andy Saunders | February 2, 2017 at 4:06 pm |

        That’s my thought as well. I’ve been putting the finishing touches on my TOC field prediction model today; hoping to have it run and results released this weekend!
