More information about Final Jeopardy:

In a story as American as Abner Doubleday inventing baseball, Betsy Ross has entered American legend as being widely credited for making the first American flag. The Episcopalian upholsterer she married (John Ross) was the son of a priest, which obviously caused a rift in her Quaker household.

According to the stories, Ross convinced George Washington to change the shape of the stars from six-pointed to five-pointed, as they were easier to cut. However, this appears these stories surfaced around the time of the American centennial. While Ross was a Philadelphia flagmaker, many historians now believe that Continental Congressman Francis Hopkinson created the first American flag.

Since Alex Trebek’s diagnosis of stage 4 pancreatic cancer, 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 the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. To date, over $370 has been raised.)

  1. Wow! Maya’s FJ large wager with a runaway could have jeopardized her win, but as it was, she completed an error free game. This was like something James might have done (or not)!
