More information about Final Jeopardy:

No song is associated with the mid-90s as much as “Macarena” (and its famous associated dance). The Bayside Boys mix of the song was the #1 Billboard year-end song of 1996, and was so popular that delegates at the 1996 Democratic National Convention were filmed by C-SPAN doing the Macarena dance.

Interestingly, the cover of the song by Los Del Mar was more popular in Canada (which makes for an interesting situation at music trivia contests north of the border).

  1. one should think 3/3 or all left will get it. My guess: 1 right.
    Possible wrong answers: Flamenco,Fandango and/or Sevillanas.

    • There is a J! rule. Go with your first instinct.

        Basically true, but somewhat made me second guess myself, what can I say? Not the first time that I’m wrong and it would not have been the first time that a “no brainer” would have produced a triple whiff.And vice versa of course.

  2. First time I can recall that my blind guess on seeing the category hit the bullseye.

    I also wondered if anyone would do even a little of the dance. Glad I’m not disappointed.

    I count 6.000 left on the board according to your numbers????

    • Apparently math is hard. Thanks, John. Corrected.

      • john blahuta | February 14, 2018 at 4:07 pm |

        Pleasure.The six grand could have prevented the runaway,but then all got it right in the end. it might have been – unlikely but possible- that Frank could have taken the lead. 8 clues left is a little much imo. 2,3, ok, but 8? unless there were a lot of triple stumpers or several times 3 guesses on a clue,taking up a lot of time. have not seen the game yet.

  4. I liked the fist bump between Frank and Rob at the end.

    When are the Andy Awards, by the way?

  5. What was the SNL category called. There was some abbreviation that I was unfamiliar with, and no explanation was given.

  6. It was OED. Now I get it. Oxford English Dictionary. We are from France.

    Did anyone else NOT hear Rob say Rabbit Run(s), as Alex claimed?
