The poem, of course, is Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “Rime of the Ancient Mariner”, the statue signifies the sailor with the albatross around his neck. In the poem, a sailor who shot a friendly albatross was forced to wear the carcass around his neck as a punishment.

  1. Live by shorting FJ, die by shorting FJ.

  2. Nothing gets me so angry as a champion going into Final Jeopardy who fails to bet enough to guarantee a win if correct.

  3. Jeopardy has featured many lawyers/teachers/professors/librarians as contestants. It is notable when someone like Dennis, who works with his hands (a painter and handyman), is a player, and a Jeopardy Champion as well. Good to see.

      Would like to see him win a few more.

    • Jasper and Freddie — I agree. Dennis proved he is pretty darn smart, has a good memory, and is well read like other Jeopardy contestants. I wish more folks from blue-collar occupations would be on the show. It’s a breath of fresh air. I, too, hope he’s on for a while.

  4. Dennis sounds like a good handyman as well.
    Can his San Diego business contact info be shared.
    Best of luck Dennis!

    • I don’t have this information and barring the information verifiably coming from Dennis himself, it would be a violation of his privacy and a gross violation of this site’s Comment Policy.

      People don’t go on Jeopardy to have their personal information slathered all over the Internet after they compete.

    The still picture of the final round was the same for both players.

    • Yes. Pasha Paterson, one of Wednesday’s contestants, reported that there was an in-studio issue regarding the screens. The judges confirmed that both players did respond correctly, but there was an issue in post-production regarding the response video screens.
