More information about Final Jeopardy:
Born in what is now Belgium in 1814, Adolphe Sax is best known today for inventing the musical instrument known as the saxophone, patenting the instrument in 1846. They became popular in military bands for their ability to play technical passages easily like woodwinds while also projecting loudly like brass instruments.
Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer on Wednesday, many community members have been raising money. The Jeopardy! Fan Online Store is as well! All proceeds from any “Keep The Faith And We’ll Win” shirt sold will be donated to Alex Trebek’s preferred charity. (The de facto alumni association is currently inquiring with the show in order to determine Alex Trebek’s preferred charity; this will be updated when that has been determined. To date, $161.95 has been raised.)

- Sometimes, the game will hand you a glimmer of hope, a faint opportunity to grasp victory where none existed previous. You need to take that opportunity.
- Because I kept track of my correct responses playing along to this episode, (43 plus Final Jeopardy), I will personally be donating $44 to Pancreatic Cancer Canada.
- On that note, it’s nice to see a category titled ON THE PGA TOUR when you’re playing for charity.
- Effective in first on buzzer stats: Lindsey 46.00% (23/50), Brad 32.00% (16/50), Bianca 22.00% (11/50).
