Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Mara won despite getting her only Daily Double attempt incorrect yesterday after doubling through Final Jeopardy. Today seems like it’s going to be a good, competitive game—and I’m looking forward to the tennis-themed categories in the Jeopardy! round (15 LOVE, DEUCE, “AD” IN, GAME, SET, MATCH).
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

Current Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh clerked for his predecessor Anthony Kennedy in 1993-94. Interestingly, fellow conservative justice Neil Gorsuch also clerked for Kennedy at the same time. Supreme Court justices have been permitted to hire clerks since the late 19th century and do so to act as their legal assistants.

This FJ seems easy, since it happened so recently, but you never know. One thing I’ve learned from this forum is not to proclaim a clue “easy” just because I happen to know the answer.
Sadly I wouldn’t even have any type of guess. No attorneys today, I’d say this would be right up their alley. But I could be mistaken 🤷♀️🙂and don’t want to offend
Brett kavanaugh was recently in the news so this one was pretty easy. Gorsuch was not a bad guess but Ginsburg I don’t think so.
Perhaps they should go over the Final Jeopardy answers with the host ahead of time to ensure the host knows how to pronounce the guesses.
Did the guest host really call Justice Gorsuch “Goreish”?
This show doesn’t often provide LOL moments for me, but there was certainly one today with Becky’s response of Job.
Then Mara tried repeating Becky’s response, this time with the correct pronunciation. That never works.
