  1. When the date finally hits you the response is easy.

  2. I wonder if anybody will say God Bless America. I figured it was the Star-Spangled Banner or that.

  3. The clues were disrespectful to Dylan.

  4. Mr.Trebek is always very careful with his pronunciations,
    on the November 28, 2018 show he didn’t do so well with

    Is it unusual for the returning Champion to miss out on Final Jeopardy?

  6. Jennifer More | November 29, 2018 at 8:48 pm |

    (Comment removed by Admin as it is a spoiler for the November 29 game in the November 28 thread.)

  7. How common is it for one player to land on all three Daily Doubles — and to get them right?
